Re: Taylor's &Co malf

Check Brownells.com for their schematic and parts page for this revolver.
They will at least describe the parts and where they are in your gun.

Re: BolaWrap: Non-lethal Restraint

Anyone who can outrun the cops should go free.
It's only fair.
Like Danial Boone outrunning the Shawnees and making it back to Kentucky.
It would also save a lot of taxpayer money for chubby cop heart attacks.

Re: Trans shop in West Palm Beach?

Automatic transmissions can be the most complicated part of the car.
Was that $1200 price from "Midnight Auto Parts?" :shock:

Re: Kentucky Gov Signs bill for concealed gun carry...

Wasn't it Ben Franklin who said something like "anyone willing to give up their rights in exchange for safety deserves neither?" Prior to 1968 no one in government would dare treat the citizenry as criminals. It took two well publicized assassinations (Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy) to allow...

Re: Kentucky Gov Signs bill for concealed gun carry...

It's easy to see how folks can get used to government intrusion and override of the Constitution. Like the frog in the slow boiling water. Having grown up in an earlier and very different version of the US, it's somewhat disturbing. Having to ask permission to exercise a Constitutional right was onc...

Re: Lots of LE agencies dumping 40 S&W.

With so many tests showing that .40, 9mm, and .45 have similar effect as pistol rounds, Does it really matter which caliber is chosen? Doesn't skill count for far more? Too many people put emphasis on equipment as a substitute for training and practice. If poor results occur, it's more likely due to...

Re: .45 GAP: The Cartridge That Should Have Replaced the .45 ACP.

With all the pistols (and revolvers) out there chambered for the 45acp, it's doubtful the .45Gap would ever be able to replace the .45acp.

Re: Looks like a PLCAA case ripe for the US Supreme Court

It's not hard to expected anyone in government fearing the idea of guns in the hands of the citizens. Especially with the huge debt and underfunded entitlements that have been building up for decades now. Sooner of later the reality of the situation will become obvious in spite of the best efforts o...

Re: Changing sights and factory triggers

Changing sights might not ever cause a serious problem - discounting poor results.
But messing with someone else's trigger as an amateur gunsmiths (without liability insurance) can cost you plenty these days.
With everyone wanting to blame everyone else for everything.
I really miss the old USA.
