Re: Why all the M1 Garand love?

For the same reason I can appreciate a flintlock or a lever action - each is important to our history and heritage, and represents a significant milestone in the evolution of firearms technology. Something too few today know or care anything about - they just want to make noise and piles of empty br...

Re: Morning Edition is celebrating the NRA...

NRA lost money according to 2017 tax records. https://www.npr.org/2018/11/29/671799992/nra-2017-tax-records-reveal-decline-in-income I wonder what the NRA's income statements look like in every election year compared to the first post-election year . . . bet there's a pattern. And I'm guessing the ...

Re: Push on for 2020 FL true AWB Constitutional Amendment

Sorry for another derailment; Are ex-felons all that interested in politics/voting? Um, no, they're not. From the first article linked above: But despite recent moves in states to notify convicts that they can vote again, the study finds little evidence that they do, undercutting Democratic efforts...

Re: My friend's house was hit by a bullet... advice

Your friend needs to send a certified letter to the neighbor - with an identical copy via regular mail, with proof of delivery (no signature required). Enclose pictures of the bullet, the hole in his house, holes in interior walls, and a photo taken line-of-sight from the hole in the exterior wall, ...

Re: NOTICE: NEW BST RULES coming soon! Input requested

Finally, the ONLY way to call dibs on an item should be to post "I'll take it" as a reply in the thread - a PM asking "will you ship?" or "got any ammo with that?" or "will you drive halfway across the state to meet me on your only day off so I can buy your $20 holster?" is NOT a commitment that fo...

Re: NOTICE: NEW BST RULES coming soon! Input requested

There used to be a strikethrough button on the toolbar that allowed price and description adjustments while leaving the original post intact - that would be helpful. Although, that doesn't do much good if the original post is locked for editing after a period of time. I also agree with OSD: Seller m...

Re: Stop the Bleed (Bleedingcontrol.org)

A tourniquet is as essential as the gun. When wearing long pants, an elastic ankle carrier is secure and discreet.
The only shorts I own are cargo shorts, which give multiple options.
