Re: Michael Drejka Convicted Of Manslaughter In Infamous Parking Lot Shooting

Griff, agree with what SCOTUS and in particular what Holmes said. However, SCOTUS of 1921 and Holmes didn't have the benefit of instant replay. The dead guy made a football move towards Drejka, until Drejka pulled the gun. When he pulled the gun, the dead guy backed away. That's when the idiot pulle...

Re: Tropical Storm Dorian

I bought a 37’ travel trailer about 8 weeks before Irma, never imagining that we’d use it so quickly. We bugged out 4 days before the storm hit, and got up to Ocala before the traffic jam got bad. Fortunately I had three 5-gallon gas cans and two 5-gallon diesel cans, so while we “almost” ran out of...

Re: Nissan pickups v. All others (gas)

I bought a 2016 Titan XD diesel when they first came out. I really loved that truck. It had one factory recall due to a handful of them that didn’t get their turbocharger properly lubricated. I had no problem but they replaced it anyway. I owned it for two years, then traded it in on a 2016 Ford F-3...

Re: Any other 1911 addicts here?

Does anyone know anything about the ATI or Armscor/RIA GI model 1911s? I want to get a cheap GI model for my 70 year old father to plink with (rather, he likes the GI model cause his father carried one) and I can't find much information on these besides that they won't explode in your hand. I don't...

Re: How Effective is .22 For Home Defense

A close relative was in 10th SFG. He said the real bad guys use .22 as their weapon of choice, but these guys have exceptional shot placement skills. Grandma & grandpa should get a 28 gauge shotgun.

Re: Lots of LE agencies dumping 40 S&W.

I've always felt that the .40 was the "near-perfect" round. It's got great muzzle velocity of a 9mm (1,150 fps) and the muzzle energy of a .45 ACP (485 ft/lbs). I particularly like the 165gr weight.
