    I want a job doing weapons ID for TV and Movies

    Well I do think it would be far more intimidating towards any would-be mugger if my gun would go "ka-chik!" whenever I draw it like they do on the movies ...

    I want a job doing weapons ID for TV and Movies

    The reason that they don't require or care about accuracy is twofold: 1. most of the viewers don't know the difference 2. it does not add to the dramatic or entertainment value of the program like... - every time someone pulls a gun, it makes a noise like you are racking the slide - every...

    SHTF additional weapon advice

    While everyone is busy recommending a Hi-Point C9 I would say go used. You can get an AK type rifle for $300ish but I'd take that other $200 and buy a used S&W Sigma 9mm or even a Kel-Tec P11. They are higher capacity, smaller, lighter, and potentially more reliable than a Hi-Point (especially...

    Tenn Gun Law Question

    Not just bars, but restaurants that serve alcohol are off-limits as well, as I discovered by being surprised with a sign when I entered the Rendezvous in Memphis recently. I had to make an unplanned trip back to the car. Look up the laws here...

    Favorite Place to Buy Ammo?

    I am noticing that most of the replies are people buying practice ammo at Wal Mart, and buying SD ammo from an online retailer like ammunitiontogo.com (as I do). Small wonder considering that Wal Mart has high quality major-brand factory ammo for less than even gun show reload prices, and that...

    Favorite Place to Buy Ammo?

    range ammo: Wal Mart SD ammo: ammunitiontogo.com WWB or UMC 9mm FMJ at Wal Mart beats gun show prices even for reloads, and even counting tax they beat internet prices for FMJ 9mm for brass case factory ammo. Academy has some bargain brand, weak loaded brass or steel case 9mm FMJ that jams...

    quick travel with guns report

    Well I did as well. But unfortunately Maryland is smack in between Virginia and Pennsylvania. I don't see any way to get from Texas to Pennsylvania without going through at least one state that doesn't honor my CHL, and the little stretch of MD is the smallest. D.C, Baltimore, New York City and...

    quick travel with guns report

    Surprising this thread doesn't get locked since it is turning political. However, let me get my dig in before the lock :) Conservatives might be interested in less law, regardless of if it is Federal or State. So a conservative might reasonably favor less state law as well as less Federal law...

    "Accidental" home invasion

    I think breaking into the house is what identifies an intruder as a threat, is it not?

    "Accidental" home invasion

    My dad was a service writer at a Ford dealership in 1984. He said at that time, Ford only had 12 or fewer different keys in production. The dealer had a set of all 12 and could open and start any new car or customer car on the premises. Doesn't surprise me that people with Fords of that era...

    quick travel with guns report

    I am indeed a conservative. Actually a libertarian. However, in the case of laws that make interstate travel very difficult due to states' imposing of vastly incompatible laws, then I am in favor of protection for travelers by federal law much like the FOPA. We have such a law (which I can't...

    No guns = no dignity

    They were breaking the law, and I did not want to take any action beyond a polite verbal request. We were riding the train back to our car, and from there were continuing on our vacation to another city two hours away. I didn't want to call 911, report a crime in progress on the train, then...

    No guns = no dignity

    Of course, I never wanted to take any action beyond a polite verbal request. Man you guys are professionals at misreading what is written.

    No guns = no dignity

    People speeding are not committing an offense AGAINST ME AND MY FAMILY. While public lewdness, indecent exposure, etc. are crimes against me. You guys seem to be wrongly inferring that 1) these were just harmless kids making out, and 2) I would have drawn a gun on them if I had a chance. They...

    No guns = no dignity

    Bingo! Thanks, Bob. And BTW, if this were in TX, the couple on this bus would have been engaging in indecency with a child, indecent exposure, and public lewdness, at the very least. Perhaps these things are legal in DC.

    No guns = no dignity

    I didn't have to assume these people were criminals. They were openly committing a crime right in front of the entire bus.

    No guns = no dignity

    Doesn't matter how they look. Anyone behaving this way would be equally suspect. I guess I put the odds at less than 1% that this would have turned violent had I asked them to desist. Those odds are too high for me. BTW this was not a matter of social mores. Even in DC, their behavior was...

    No guns = no dignity

    You know, in retrospect, we should have gotten off of that train and gotten on another one. I am not sure that this was not the last train going to that station that night. I don't recall. I know there was some reason we didn't just get off and switch trains.

    No guns = no dignity

    These weren't teens. The "young man" was probably 25. The teens were our children. Nevermind. You guys obviously don't get the point. I never suggested using deadly force to dissuade this offensive behavior. However, given the chances of any conflict escalating, there was nobody on the train...

    No guns = no dignity

    That's an interesting opinion. I think risk assessment is a major factor in social interactions.
