Re: Morning Edition is celebrating the NRA...

I remember reading earlier this year, that the NRA had a big fine/judgement leveled against them, for offering defensive firearm use insurance.
A couple liberal states have laws against insurance, that covers your defense after the commission of a crime.

Re: Push on for 2020 FL true AWB Constitutional Amendment

I'm 70, and own outright my house. I've been saying for years that I have just one more move in my future, when I take up permanent residency in a urn. Well, that will likely change if Florida's constitution is amended to more or less ban guns. Northern Arizona looks nice, Prescott and Flagstaff are...

Re: What Ranges allow 50 BMG in Central Florida

Seminole County Gun & Archery Association does allow 50 BMG rifles on the rifle range. BUT, you have to be a club member, AND you have to go through a special training seminar before you are allowed to shoot 50 BMG. The special training is nothing really, just do not let rounds go over the burm and ...

Re: Melbourne show this weekend, Nov 17 & 18

I saw a good number of M1 Grands, M1 Carbines, SMLE's, 98K's, Mosin Nagants; a few 1903 Springfields, Japanese rifles, and Yugo Mausers.
Also saw a lot of P-38's and Lugers, a few Nambu's and 1911's.
Pricing for old military stuff was in the range of current market pricing to just plain nuts.

Melbourne show this weekend, Nov 17 & 18

Another quiet show. Was down there this morning. Many of the regular vendors were missing, so there must be other shows in the area this weekend. Attendance was lighter than normal. Ammo prices continue to drop, example 500 round bricks of 22LR for less than $20. There were also some good deals on h...

Re: 13 dead in mass shooting at Thousand Oaks bar

Now they are saying he used a Glock 21 .45-caliber handgun with an illegal extended magazine.

The guy was a Middle Eastern sandbox veteran, who they are saying suffered from PTSD.

Re: 13 dead in mass shooting at Thousand Oaks bar

The local police are reporting he used a California compliant 45 ACP handgun, and was also using compliant 10 round magazines.
At least he followed California Gun Laws to the "T", that was so nice of him.
They also said that about thirty shots were fired, so three clips worth.

Re: It ain't over yet - Scott vs. Nelson

Bill Nelson, not going to miss him at all.
Really what has he done in the last 10 years, other than to give us Charlie Bolton as NASA Administrator?
He was ballast on the Space Shuttle, and he turned into ballast in the Senate.
He was nothing more than a poster child for term limits.

Re: Fall back tonight...

Yes, Florida passed a state law placing Florida on constant DST. But, Congress has to approve the change, and so far the proposal has not even been heard in committee in either house. The airlines and train companies are against it, and lobbying against the change. The Florida based theme parks are ...

Re: Another Stand Your Ground Shooting Rejected

Yes, that was a bad shooting.
The first time I saw the video on the TV news, I knew the would be charged.

I doubt the prosecution will let him cut a plea deal on this one, and the jury will not buy a self defense claim.
His life is now screwed, for a very bad split second decision.
