"for middle of the night i keep a sig 220 in reach
at the front door I have a Barreta Stampede- (single action .45lc), we get snakes sometimes.
in my closet my favorite practical home defense is the M1 Carbine, almost no recoil, magazine fed,…"
"Gotta say, I'm a fan of the classics myself. Of course I've never met a gun I didn't like.
Some favorites are the M1 Garand, the Mosin Nagant, the AK-47 (in all its permutations) and the "scary black rifle" itself, the…"
"Hey Ted, I also am a Ruger GP100 fan. After carrying the Ruger Police Service Six as a Mecklenburg County Deputy Sheriff(Charlotte,NC/ now retired) for 13 years, I became very fond of Ruger double action revolvers. For my remaining…"
"I have a few guns, but my Ruger GP100 .357 is my favorite. I've had this gun for 10-15 years now. I walked into the USMC exchange to buy a glock, but walked out with the Ruger. It fits my hand perfectly and the weight/balance is great. Its…"
"Thank you kindly.
It shot a little left of center that afternoon, so I had to drift the rear sight a bit to get it where it needed to be. While not in the "tack driver' class, it is more than adequate for what it was intended.
"Corey - good shooting.
Don't stress. SASS posses are notoriously helpful and social. First shoots are often free. If you dress half way right (not just a T-shirt and ball cap) let alone bring some guns and enough ammo you…"
" I've been involved with Cowboy Fast Draw, single action revolver only and Buffalo Silhouette side matches since I got out of college, but am going to shoot my first SASS matches with an ad hoc battery this…"
"I bought my Rossi in the middle/late 1980s. The action was as smooth as my brother's Marlin 1894. After a few years of use, it smoothed out more. I'd compare it to a new Big Boy. Trigger pull was never more than 5.5 lbs, and after some…"
"Favorite was a Ruger .22 revolver. Versatile, easy to handle and maintain. That pistol gave me all the joy or Ralphie's Red Ryder BB gun. It was my rabbit slayer.
I have other firearms now. More powerful, semi…"
" I love that Plains Warrior tacked up Rossi! I need a pistol caliber levergun to complete my SASS shooting battery, and am weighing the Rossi against a Henry big boy, upon some glorious day when my budget allows for it.
" The .35 has a lot more hitting power, especially with some heavier loads. My uncle, a lefty, always hunted with an ancient Remington pump .35, and he's one of the best running deer shots I can think of. I helped…"
"Hey Rick, don't worry about me judging your wife's beliefs. Even though I am a Christian, I spent a lot of time studying other religions, and have many friends who are pagan and subscribers to Eastern faiths. I would appreciate her input!…"
My 28-year-old brother recently got accepted into law school, and I want to congratulate him by sending him a gift. I have the hardest time choosing gifts for people, because I don't want to get them something they're not going to use. Which is why I prefer cash or Amazon gift cards myself. But this is momentous enough that I want to actually get him a specific item, I guess to demonstrate my thoughtfulness. I googled gift ideas, but nothing's really stuck with me yet. I was just wondering…See More
Virtual staff room for visionary teachers of every discipline. This is a good place for educators to discuss their collective role in society--particularly in regards to their duty as role models for young men. What does it mean to be a male role model for young boys in the classroom? How can we serve them best? See More
""Personally I don't feel that this is anywhere near strong enough a response. I feel that it should have been dealt with in the moment, especially since a strong action requires a strong response."
I agree with…"
