Re: Why Amy Coney Barrett instead of Barbara Lagoa?

I'm guessing because Barrett's a known quantity. Besides being highly qualified, she's recently been through the confirmation process once, and so it's very unlikely anything "new" can be dug up to be used against her. It leaves the Democrats nothing to grill her on except her religion (again) - and...

Re: S&W model 60 and +p

It's a liability thing that S&W's lawyers insist on.

Here's a discussion on the topic from another forum almost 10 years ago:

Re: Lakeland Gun Show @ Sun n Fun 20SEP20

Before going into the show what were your expectations price per round or a case of 500 on brass 55 grain .223 like Remington or Wolf Gold? The same goes for 9mm 115 WWB and PMC? I expected ammo prices to be high, and I wasn't disappointed in that regard, but then I wasn't looking to buy 9mm or .22...

Re: Lakeland Gun Show @ Sun n Fun 20SEP20

Went today for a couple hours & had a good time. No line when I got there about 10:30. Bought four boxes of .327 Federal Magnum self defense ammo for less than pre-panic retail, a project pistol, and on the way out picked up a wheeled watertight storage case from the guy who sells military surplus g...

Re: Lakeland Gun Show @ Sun n Fun 20SEP20

Not all that long ago, gun shows were social gatherings, where a group of people with a common interest could get together, swap stories and information (even knowing some was just bullshit) maybe buy something interesting or sell something no longer interesting. The smaller local shows, before comm...

Re: Newt Gingrich name drops on Fox, things get wierd.

Anyone see it live? Looks like it may be a doctored clip? Fox news ran an apology spot today, Harris Faulkner speaking very carefully. https://www.thedailybeast.com/fox-news-anchor-harris-faulkner-apologizes-for-cutting-off-newt-gingrichs-george-soros-rant WTF? Now THAT was as weird as the original...

Re: China Virus was man made and released on purpose

For starters, China can just write off the $1.1 Trillion or so in US debt they hold. After that, we'll be in touch.

Re: Changing Faces of Gun Owners

I think the Democrats' support of the "Defund the Police" movement, in conjunction with the "hands-off" policies of Democratic mayors and governors in dealing with the looters and vandals who operate under the ridiculous shield of "peaceful protesting" has unwittingly caused a greater surge in first...
