Re: Red Flag or Red Coat Laws?

Obvious practical flaw, and there are more. The initial action can be based on just hearsay or worse, often a desire for vengeance. Anyone who thinks that doesn't happen has never talked to a divorce lawyer. Some of the sleazier ones will even advise domestic violence accusations. Something like thi...

Re: Red Flag or Red Coat Laws?

Do any of you know the actual procedures for red flag laws? The way it's supposed to work, according to Sheriff Gualtieri (Pinellas), is upon report to the police, officers visit the subject, and make an assessment. Basically, they can ask the subject to turn in firearms pending a hearing but, supp...

Ok, someone’s got to say it, I guess it’s my turn. “Suppose it was one of us ordinary folks?”

Re: Venezuela regrets gun ban

Remember the photos of gun owners lined up in CT to comply with some stupid law? They were eager to comply.

Re: Those Silly Canuks...

“Taking that chance of that happening one time in one school, or one time in one church, I just don’t think anybody’s civil rights are worth it.” Scariest line of all, and one that is uttered here in the US every day. I would follow her wishes. That kind wants to live in a fairy tale until somethin...

Re: Air Force For The Win LOL

The Russians beat each other with chains, among other things, to toughen them up, and get them accustomed to being hit or bleeding. Maybe these clowns will try to sign up the opposition for diversity training or a transgender operation. If the SHTF, I can imagine how belligerent this two legged excr...

Re: The NRA shitstorm

NRA became a large bureaucracy, and is suffering the fate of all bureaucracies: existing only as a self-perpetuating money machine. Executive management fixates on gathering money, which goes in turn for financing more fund drives. If that is not the goal of a manager, that manager likely is pushed ...

Re: Example 889734789 of why Diversity is Our Strength!

Maybe the "Roaring '20s" weren't so bad, after all. Yeah, there were gangs, but they fought each other. An old white guy like I am would not even be worthy of notice, let alone attack for "thrills" or the hell of it. And, I could have a Thompson, too, if I wanted it.

Re: lets talk about the SIG P220 elite stainless.

I had an early stainless P220 (non elite) one for a while but sold it after just few months as it was too heavy. I've had a German made P-220 since 1991 and it was my carry pistol for few years. It was easy to carry in a IWB holster but the stainless version was much heavier. I believe regular P220...
