Posted in thread: Summertime carry on 05-11-2014 at 10:05 PM
This time of year, when the weather begins to warm and my wardrobe shifts from winter / spring,
to summer, my age old dilemma once again bugs me; that being summertime carry. For the past few
Posted in thread: Full circle. on 04-27-2014 at 05:14 AM
It seems that I have come full circle. Although I learned to shoot handguns in the military,
and later served with the Navy Small Arms Training Unit, all of that was with the 1911a1.
Beginning my care...

As long as you are comfortable with the pistol, and are able to operate it, then by all means

I believe this might be the key phrase in the section of law quoted: Otherwise Clint and Heidi

.270 caliber whic...

Originally a gift from my son 10 years ago, my S&W 642 J-frame alloy + stainless, was my on
duty backup gun. I also used it as a summertime / hot weather carry gun. In my old age
retirement, I find my...
