so here in Texas, we tend to not let the pansy liberals make decisions as to what we decide to use to defend our lives, the lives of our families and our property. yes you read that right, we can and are allowed to use lethal force to protect our property.
so your points and arguement might have some merit in a much more liberal state, but not here in Texas.

so here in Texas, if i were involved in a justified and righteous SD shooting, it's very highly unlikely i would be sitting in court having to defend my choice of ammo or pistol accessories.
You keep on assuming that you're at home when you're in a defensive shooting scenario. What if you're in Austin one evening and . . . not all of Texas is conservative. And what if you're out of state?

Conservative is fine, good even. But, a red neck attitude won't serve you well if you're in an area where the general public doesn't see it your way.

Somewhere in here was a thread about grips.
