    The employer has the right to set the rules. The employee agrees to the rules. The employee
    breaks the rules, employee loses job. The employee broke her contract with the employer.I see
    no foul here.T...

    I just got another 3 inch, a SP 101, and found several holsters for the j frame in my 'holster
    box' that work just fine. As for damage to the crown, what you say is true, but at handgun
    range, 50 yds ...

    Semi- autos are closely related to the needs of the military and police. The expected ranges
    are normally a mite closer and reliability and firepower are the words of the day even at the
    price of accu...

    It all boils down to bullet construction and MV. The 147 gr we were issued were no better than
    38 sp 158 gr lead RN (junk). But that said the 147 is to heavy for that small case (capacity)
    of the 9 mm...

    bottom line is, if you travel in state with very restrictive gun laws, and that has no
    reciprocity with other states as far as carry permits, you better be sure you abide by their
    laws if you don't wa...

    A friend of mine was stopped in California. The officer asked where the gun was. When he was
    told that the driver didn't have a gun in the vehicle, he requested permission to search.My
    friend, A sheri...

    Look the formula up. It is actually KE = 0.5 x Mass x velocity squared.Either way I think the
    point being made was that velocity is the big multiplier in energy.My bad:o, you are correct. I
    was thinki...

    Kinetic energy is one half the mass, multiplied by the velocity squared.Negative. Mass times
    velocity squared.

    Most any rifle with the right load & bullet and at a reasonable distance, will neatly terminate
    deer, sheep, elk, and larger game so long at the shooter delivers the right bullet to the right
    spot. Th...
