  • 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
    years, h...

  • 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...

  • Posted in thread: .40 M&P Shield for Carry? on 04-26-2014 at 03:17 PM
    As long as you are comfortable with the pistol, and are able to operate it, then by all means
    you should carry it. It's a personal matter that only you can decide. What anyone else carries
    is irreleva...

    I believe this might be the key phrase in the section of law quoted: Otherwise Clint and Heidi
    Smith at Thunder Ranch in Oregon would be in violation of the law. Just say'n what the law is.

    I carry Critical Defense .38 spl. +P in my J-frame, and the wife carries it in hers. I also
    have Critical Defense in my two .45's (S&W 457 & 1911) and I was able to find some Critical
    Duty to put in m...

    The_American, .02 worth from an old 1911 owner/shooter/carrier/firearms instructor/armorer.
    I've used 1911 type pistols from various manufacturers since the '60s. During my last several
    years in full ...

  • Posted in thread: Striker fire vs hammer fire on 03-21-2014 at 08:36 PM
    Being old school, military and LEO, I was slow to pick up a striker fired pistol. I learned to
    shoot pistols with the 1911a1 in the Navy, eventually becoming the base RSO (Range Safety
    Officer). So wi...

    I don't think you can go wrong with your decisions, they are all good. There is no single,
    perfect rifle ammo combination, despite what some may claim. For years I had a Rem. 700, in
    .270 caliber whic...

  • Posted in thread: Need ideas for a ccw on 01-24-2014 at 04:13 AM
    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...

    I've been a member of the forum for a few years, but about 6 months ago I had to go away.
    Anyway, I'm back and just wanted to stop in and say howdy. :cool:
