I believe he has good intentions, but after watching a few of his videos, he seems to be a tad whiney.
He's also wrong.   :P

Thank you Patriot, and everyone else who had a hand in making this site, for the best 10mm site on the internet!
You've managed to make it even better!

I've had my eye on a nice Witness Elite Match, in 10mm of course, over here at my LGS.  ::)

General Discussion / Re: November Election
« on: August 15, 2016, 09:39:29 PM »
I am a naturalized citizen. A Latino.  A legal immigrant.  I voted for Reagan as soon as I became a citizen at 18.  I'm voting for Trump.
I am a veteran of the U.S. Army, the CT Air National guard, the U.S. Air Force Reserve, and even the U.S. Civil Air Patrol. I'm voting for Trump.
During college I was commander of the Cadets at my University ROTC program.  I'm voting for Trump.
I was denied membership in the Boy Scouts of America, because in 1971, and living in Boston when I wanted to join, they didn't take "Spics" in my local troop.  I'm voting for Trump.
I'm a life member of the NRA.  I'm voting for Trump.

WHY?

Because he will build a wall and try to stop illegal entry into the USA? Yes.
Because his mother and two of his three wives are immigrants? Yes.
Because he was Commander of Cadets at his military school? Yes.
Because he will make our so-called NATO allies pull their own weight for THEIR defense? Yes.
Because he has already given us the names of who he will appoint to the next 5 openings in the US Supreme court? Yes.
Because he will call out China and hold them accountable for their detrimental policies on our currency and technology transfer? Yes.
Because no one has bought him, and he owes nothing to anyone politically? Yes.
Because he is calling out the Clintons and the Bushes for what they have done to us over the last 20 years? Yes.
Because he is a life member of the NRA and so are his kids?  Yes.
Because he's taking a 99.9% pay cut to be president? Yes.


Is he perfect? Does he say the same stupid stuff we say when we have a few beers together? No, he's worse.  He says it on national TV.

We all complain about Washington D.C. and we all say throw them all out.  Then one guy comes along who doesn't care about any of the status quo and we freak out.

Trump may lose, but not because of me.  It's because the silent majority doesn't register to vote in time or stays home on election day.
I have a Trump sticker on my Chevy truck and my Chevy Volt.

Stop whining about not having the perfect idiot in the White House. Your vote matters, and your opinion matters. This election really matters.
Put a sticker on your vehicle, wear a pin.  Convince your buddies at work to get the masses out for this guy.

Our Nation depends on you now.
 

 

Very well put sir!

Competition Shooting / Re: Steel Challenge?
« on: August 15, 2016, 06:01:44 AM »
My wife started shooting steel earlier this year, and she had her first actual match last week, where she placed second, using her almost stock(trigger job) G19 9mm. Second place prize was an AR lower, and some ammo.
I don't do the run-and-gun stuff any more because a car accident left me with severely limited mobility, but I still shoot LR
and ULR rifle matches.
The wife tried shooting a G20, but she didn't like it. She goes through about 500 rounds/week practicing, and even with 9mm, her wrists and hands get sore. I think that much practice with a 10mm would be out of the question for her.

General Discussion / Re: 9mm downs an Alaska Grizzly
« on: August 10, 2016, 07:40:45 PM »
I honestly don't know what to say, other than I think that the guide was extremely lucky, as were his clients. I know several LEO's who don't trust the 9mm as a reliable man-stopper, let alone a charging grizzly. I can't think of an animal with more tenacity. There's a reason many Alaskan guides/outfitters carry a large caliber rifle, or a shotgun w/slugs, as their primary
OFF SWITCH for bears, and who also carry a big bore revolver, of the 454 Casull,  475 Linebaugh, or 500 S&W variety,
as back up for when their primary gun can't be utilized quickly enough. I'm glad that it turned out well for the guide and his clients, but I bet they all had to change their underwear.

General Discussion / Re: 10mm stops a bear
« on: August 09, 2016, 12:44:53 PM »
I remember hearing a story about Larry Kelly, founder of MagnaPort, encountering a 1000+ lb Kodiak in his tent one night.
He put (6) 44 mag 240gr JHP in the bear at point blank range, and the bear never so much as blinked. After tracking the bear and dropping it with a 375 H&H, they found that none of the rounds made it past the bear's fat layer. Later on that same year, he encountered an even bigger bear, and dropped it with one round from the same gun, a Ruger Super Blackhawk, loaded with some 300gr hard cast rounds.
All things considered, if I were ever in a place where there were large critters who considered me to be 'on the menu', I would
feel better having a high-cap 10mm on my hip, preferably loaded with some hot and heavy hard cast rounds.

Puts most gunsmiths out of business
Really?.
Seems like a better idea to pass the 2500 on to customers.  If the smith threads or rechambering one barrel a week each customer pays $50
Not good news but the sky is not falling
That clown should never have been elected

That's not what I read. According to the article, 'any machining, altering of parts, or anything that may result in better performance or accuracy, could be considered 'manufacturing', even if only done one time.'
By their definition, any one of us could violate the law with the simple installation of an aftermarket FPS that required
'altering' in order to fit.
Nothing good can come of this.

When I read the memo, it stated something to the extent of commercial. Its not commercial if you are doing this for yourself to your own firearm.

I stand corrected. My apologies.
It's still a terrible law that will have ZERO effect on crime/criminals. It's a solution looking for a problem.

Such a terrible loss.
He will be missed.

The time to negotiate is now with Obama.

Lots of you are banking on Trump to win. If he loses Hillary will pack the court. Gun makers will become liable and the hobby will be priced out.

But keep praying and hoping the GOP will keep their promises when they never have.

I don't understand your logic. Negotiating with Obama will gain us nothing with Hillary Clinton. If she becomes President, she can change any deals made with the current POTUS, and if you think that Obama will do anything to undermine any future decisions that might be made during a Hillary Clinton presidency, then you are the one who is naive. Hillary Clinton will do as she damn well pleases, regardless of any deals we make now. You don't get it Wolfie. Our rights were never theirs to negotiate with. They are absolute. It doesn't matter if they're Republican or Democrat, these politicians work for us, not the other way around. It's time we reminded them of that.

CW, I'll sign, in recognition and appreciation of your efforts on behalf of the 2A. That being said, I will never negotiate away ANY of my rights, in order to get back any rights that have already been taken by some wannabe tyrant. There is no negotiating with Obama, or the fools who follow him.

General Discussion / Re: What is your next handgun?
« on: July 09, 2016, 04:55:41 PM »
I have the 7.5" barrel and kind of wish I had a 6". I don't think I would want it in a 4"  :o

I have a 5 1/2" Redhawk that's an excellent trail gun, and it also doubles as a car gun. True, it can be a hand full, especially with some heavier bullets, loaded at or near maximum. It's just such a handy overall package, that I can't help but think a 4" Redhawk would be even better.

So many choices, so little time. :D

Next gun I grab is going to probably be a Ruger Redhawk 44 Magnum with the factory 4" barrel and Hogue rubber grips. The .44 is soooo much fun to reload for.
