    How reliable is your keltec P3AT?

    Break In Time I recommend firing at least 200-300 rounds of the jhp defensive ammo that you are going to carry before putting it into service. It should be 100% with the ammo you choose. From ballistics performance data I have reviewed, it seems that the Speer Gold Dot is the best for...

    380 only

    No pic, but I carry a .380 Keltec P3AT as my primary when pocket carry is the only way for me to go. Otherwise I carry a G26 in 9mm in an IWB with a covering garment.

    Is the P-3AT killing P-32 resale value?

    I got lucky on my recent visit to Utah, bought a P3AT at Van Wagenens in Orem Utah for $195. That store simply can't be beat. Love the gun and I'm afraid it will hurt sales/resell for the P-32. Maybe you can learn to shoot left handed and use it to back up your back up P 3AT. . . . <g> :D...

    How reliable is your keltec P3AT?

    I've had only one jam while shooting my first rounds through my P 3AT. Otherwise it has been very reliable. I'm very happy with it and haven't found a better compromise for a concealed carry weapon. However, I too get the occassional ejected brass in the head; is it really the stiffness of my...

    Would you Intervene?

    As a general proposition, that is truly pathetic. However, concerning the facts of this scenario, it would be unwise to engage a BG in a hostage situation that even SWAT HRT members will tell you is hard to prepare for after a career of training. This is compounded by the second BG who may...

    Would you Intervene?

    For those of you (us) willing to intervene/and shoot, you'd better be prepared to take a head shot on the BG with the gun on the hostage, not shoot to COM, or double tap as has been suggested. A COM shot, even if directly to the heart, leaves the BG with enough blood pressure for meaningful...

    are rights absolute?

    This thread has now become a debate over the meaning of the word "right." A "right" (for purposes of this discussion) is not simply the mere ability to do something as several have recently posted. A "right" is a protected or guaranteed ability to do something. At least that's what a...

    I'm glad someone listens to good music. ;)

    are rights absolute?

    The entire post. Honestly, I've followed your other posts, but the last one just left me scratching my head. . .It looks like you're trying to get some kind of funky metaphorical thing going, but it just doesn't get your message across. . . to me anyway. :(

    are rights absolute?

    Yes, we can agree. But you also have a right to life, UNLESS you murder someone. That, on its face is an exception to the right to life, meaning that the right to life cannot be absolute. An "absolute" right by definition cannot be subject to conditions, exceptions, or restrictions; it must...

    are rights absolute?

    labgrade, I respect your persistence, but how can you have an "absolute" (without exception/unconditional) right to life if the government can rightfully take that right away if you're convicted and sentenced to the death penalty? Your right to life is conditional on you not murdering someone...

    are rights absolute?

    The entire thread, but the above quote in particular, has degraded the meaning of fundamental rights (rights we possess that prevent the government or others from taking action to infringe upon them) to a now convolluted definition of "right" that it's something you're able to do, and now...

    are rights absolute?

    Well, KM, we can agree on one thing based on your above statement, that her right is not absolute (without exception and unconditional) which is what this thread started out to be about.

    are rights absolute?

    Indeed. Well put.

    are rights absolute?

    Of course it does; what's your point? :confused: And being "stripped of that right" means that she no longer possesses it. Where does it exist? In her mind? A right unexercised is no right at all.

    are rights absolute?

    Rights are defined by the system of governance that one lives in. Rights may well be absolute if you live on a deserted island or the moon, but they're not absolute (unconditional, without exception) when a human being lives under the Rule of Law. In fact, rights are only meaningful to the...

    are rights absolute?

    Because, in a general sense, the alternative is anarchy.

    are rights absolute?

    You can choose to believe that, but if you exercise your rights "absolutely" -- that is, without recognizing that they are subject to certain exceptions and restrictions -- you will absolutely end up either locked up or owing someone a lot of money.

    are rights absolute?

    Not always. Why not just stick with the recognition that you can do anything you like, so long as you act in accordance with the law. Our system of government operates based on the Rule of Law, not the rule of the non-aggression principle. The Rule of Law also recognizes "rights" -- while not...
