General Gun Discussion / Supporting 2A GOA via Amazon
« on: Yesterday at 06:53:03 PM »
I'm guessing Amazon hasn't looked into what GOA supports...
Then they haven’t noticed donations going to the Second Amendment Foundation either (another ‘nonprofit’ supported by Amazon Smile).  I’m guessing if the program is set up to support national “non-profits”, then I’m guessing they’re not allowed to arbitrarily discriminate.  I see this as a case of “good karma” coming back on Amazon/Bezos.  I’ve been utilizing ‘Smiles’ for at least the last three years (...or more).

For those using Amazon to order things, why not use Amazon Smiles and make a donation to help support Second Amendment efforts of Gun Owners of America (doesn’t cost you anything extra).
Received today:
Spread the word to other 2A supporters; every little bit helps!

So he wasn’t a felon in possession(?) - I thought one of the early news report had said he was a previously convicted felon.  (Maybe I’ve got my news reports mixed up...).  In any case, his bad luck!

Sorry for your loss Alte.
I Second that; sorry, it’s a big loss.  I lost my father two years ago (Mar 4th).

I would invite either the guy in front of the camera or the video’s narrator to stand in front of my 380, loaded with today’s ammunition - let’s see if I get any takers.

General Gun Discussion / where can i go to sell my firearm
« on: February 27, 2019, 10:42:02 PM »
Many folks are adamant about NOT doing a signed ‘Bill of Sale’ for a private transaction.  I take the opposite approach; I want the buyer’s acknowledgement that I’ve passed the ownership of a certain serial numbered firearm to them.  A lot (most) of my firearms have been bought new - meaning their serial numbers can be traced directly to me.  Should something happen with that firearm at some point in the future - it’s recovered at the scene of a bank robbery or murder - I want the ability to show the cops:  “Hey(!), no use talking to me... go see this guy!”

There are some basic “bill of sale” formats/templates on the Internet - they don’t need to be anything fancy.  They just need to provide enough buyer/seller information to get the cops’ attention off you, should the results of the transaction ‘turn south’ at some future date.  Record their LTC and/or driver’s license info on the BOS.  If they’re not willing to sign a BOS, I’m not willing to sell it to them!

Handguns and Revolvers / Latest acquisition for HD
« on: February 13, 2019, 10:35:56 PM »
Well, the Trijicon Tritium night sights are installed.... turned out okay.  Just need to get to the range and get the laser zero’d in.  Got it loaded up with ball/range ammo for now; probably will use Federal HST when it’s bedside. 

Px4 Storm .45 cal = $388 (on sale @ Cabela’s just after Christmas) came with one 9-rd & one 10-rd magazine.

Bought five more 10-rd magazines on sale @ Cabela’s for $29.88 each.  Used my Cabela’s points, so gun & magazines were “free”.

Streamlight TLR-2G from Optics Planet for $267.

Trijicon Trintium Night Sights from Optics Planet for $107.  So I’m into it total about $375 (hard cash, out of pocket) - not too bad for a very decent HD setup.

In order to protect the clear lens on the weapons light from excessive burnt powder residue while at the range, I do rubber-band a plastic covering from a “baggie” or plastic wrap over it.  (Obviously not for the shots it takes to zero the laser).

New dedicated home defense (nightstand) gun.  Got a few others in various rooms scattered around the house but up until now, I’ve typically just put my EDC within bedside reach.  That happens to be a Beretta Px4 Storm Compact in 9mm. 

Decided to keep a dedicated full size Px4 Storm in .45ACP next to the bed (10+1):


Only a couple improvements to be done; put a Streamlight TLR2 - Green laser light on it:


And ordered Trijicon nights sights for it.  In the process of installing / fitting them now:

Folks talk about how difficult it is to remove factory sights from a Springfield XD series pistol.  They ain’t got nuthin’ on Beretta’s Px4 Storm series.  I’ve done both and the Beretta wins hands down.  I swore when I changed out the compact to night sights, I’d never do that again.  Well, as the old saying goes.... never say never!

As I’ve said before about my ammo “stockpile”, my magazine “arsenal” would probably also ‘make the evening news’!   With them using just those terms.

Uhh... no.

Politics, Gripes, Complaints / Stupid bank robber in Austin
« on: January 25, 2019, 10:10:55 PM »
The Austin cops had his email address.  They should’ve just sent him an email saying they know who he is, and for him to turn himself in (if necessary, they could’ve followed up with a phone call).

:facepalm:  I’ll say!!!
Assuming there was a guy involved (a pretty safe bet), this is the kind of video that makes me want to grab him by the nap of the neck and jerk a knot in his tail!

General Gun Discussion / Any planned 2019 purchases?
« on: January 06, 2019, 12:14:37 PM »
I like to say “logic” dictates my purchases (...or, at least, that’s what I *like* to tell myself!). 

Seriously, I do try to avoid “impulse buys” (especially on big ticket items).  My modus operandi usually involves identifying some kind of perceived need OR desire to be filled.  And then I typically wait to make the purchase until I can find it at a good sale price.

Such was the PX4 Storm (mentioned previously in this thread) at Cabela’s with their sale price of $400.  And of course, I’m now in the same waiting mode on Beretta, to put the 45-cal magazines on sell.  Sooner or later, they’ll do that and I’ll grab a few extra magazines for my new acquisition.

My philosophy is, if it’s a *real* need or a *real* desire, ‘time’ won’t make that fade.  That’s a void that will exist six months from now, just as strongly as it exists today.  And if it doesn’t, did I really need it that badly?  Just my approach; YMMV!

Still infinitely better than the criminal Hillary.

General Gun Discussion / Any planned 2019 purchases?
« on: January 04, 2019, 08:06:05 AM »
This would probably have to qualify as my first new gun for 2019 even though I technically picked it up on the 29th.  (Haven’t shot it yet).  My second Beretta Px4 Storm in 45ACP (full size) 10+1, joins my 9mm Compact Storm which has been my EDC for the past couple of years.
Planning to set this one up as my primary Home Defense [bedside/nightstand] gun.  Initially envision some Tritium Night Sights and a weapons light (probably a Streamlight TLR-2 G).

Reminded me of the old TV commercial (?car insurance?):
You can be right.... dead right!

I’m no particular fan of the cops but at *some point* common sense has to prevail.  In what possible universe does walking up to a police station wearing a balaclava with an AR strapped to ya and an open carry sidearm, seem like a good idea?

The kid has my sympathy. Sleeping with that fugly hag is NOT something I would want on my conscience at that young an age.
Agreed.  There ARE better choices to be made in life.
