Concerning the problem of deleting private messages, I just created a brand new forum on one of my domains and the error wasn't present. Over the weekend, I will try something, but it will require me to shut down the forum. I will try to do this at a less problematic time for you guys. I'll keep you posted but if the forum isn't available, it is because I am working on it.

Re: Buckle your seatbelts, we're taking the time machine to 1995 to look at the Wonder-Nine transition.

Thinking back on it now I remember a news story (maybe 20/20 or 60 Minutes) in the late 80's where they interviewed the Metro-Dade Police homicide detective who was involved in the investigating the 1986 FBI Pinecrest shootout. In the interview he said after investigating that shootout he went out a...

Re: S&W model 60 and +p

I wouldn't worry about shooting occasional +P rounds and carrying it with +P rounds in a model 60. I bet I've shot over 200 rounds of factory Winchester 158gr SWC-HP +P in each of my old lightweight model 37 and 38 and they still shoots good. They were some of my first carry guns in the 80's when I ...

Re: Buckle your seatbelts, we're taking the time machine to 1995 to look at the Wonder-Nine transition.

Until about 1990 it was rare to see LEO carrying pistols and few I did see were usually S&W model 459 or 659 series pistols. Only departments in S.FL. that I know authorized officers to carry 1911 series pistols back at that time was Pembroke Pines, Sweetwater and possibly Hialeah as I saw a uniform...

Re: Found my unicorn rifle. How would you proceed?

Yeah it all depends on the value.
I've taken a day off from work and driven 300+ miles out of state to see the gun in person and saw the FFL ship it out to my FFL before I gave cash for it.

Re: Had a self-defense situation the other night (non-human, no shot fired)

Yeah, get couple of game cameras on your yard to get pictures of the neighbor's dog intruding on your yard. There are $30 game cameras with good resolution and fast warm up. When you get a picture call the local LEO and file a complain about the neighbor's dog. Do this enough times so LEO will have ...

Re: Changing Faces of Gun Owners

Yeah, the CommieTards, Libitards that don't get trained, don't go to the range to practice, and and are stupid to shoot themselves in the foot... Don't be so sure. I know plenty of Democratic party voting, progressive liberal gun owners who goes to range, shoot competitively and even take training ...

Re: What was your first revolver?

My first revolver was a Ruger Security Six with 2 3/4" barrel in 357 magnum caliber. I got it in 1979 at Ace Air Conditions Sales and Repair in North Miami. It was $250 and included a box of Remington 158gr JHP ammo. I spent a lot of time with my dad with him teaching me to shoot double action with ...

Re: A Floridian For 31 Years

STARZ has all episodes of Miami Vice streaming. I watched a few the other day and it was AMAZING to see mid-80's Miami! WOW! Things change subtly over time so you don't notice even though you know there's been growth, but this was :shock: Prior to Miami Vice days South Beach was known as God's wait...

Re: A Floridian For 31 Years

Shit, I arrived in Miami on May 5, 1972...I think it was about 3:30PM.
Now I'm just 20 miles north of there in Broward.

You know what that makes me?..OLD!!!!

Re: Private Indoor Home Gun Range | Luxury Shooting

I know a guy who has a 5 lane 20 yards indoor range at his house in S. FL. It's in his house with about half of the range underground and half above ground. It was about 25 feet wide and 75 feet long and 8+ feet high and was almost the entire length of one side of the house. It was a separate struct...
