Politics, Gripes, Complaints / Texas November 2019 voting
« on: August 27, 2019, 11:14:24 AM »
Texas has Constitution Amendments coming up for a vote this November.  There are ten to be voted on.

Be sure to vote “FOR” Proposition #4.  This prevents the legislature from ever voting to consider a state income tax.  The wording can be tricky on some of these propositions (it’s probably intentional), so do your homework before you vote on them!

General Gun Discussion / Supporting 2A GOA via Amazon
« on: March 25, 2019, 05:51:32 PM »
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!

Handguns and Revolvers / Latest acquisition for HD
« on: February 11, 2019, 08:33:32 PM »
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!

And in a related Breitbart [Texas edition] article, they mentioned Mexico turning back a drug smuggler and two guys convicted of murder and rape and one person from Bangladesh.

and drug the wife along too (she doesn’t always vote).  But this time I convinced her Senator Cruz needed for her to participate! 
Early voting; Tuesday around noon.  Place was busy but well staffed & the volunteers kept it moving along nicely.

Off Topic Discussion (NON FIREARM RELATED) / What was this guy thinking?
« on: October 14, 2018, 04:30:01 PM »
Taking a shot at someone fleeing the scene?  No matter what the wife thought or said - this guy’s lack of self control is amazing.  Taking a long range shot at the back of someone fleeing is not a self defense scenario in anyone’s book.

Defensive Tactics / How many practice double tabs?
« on: October 10, 2018, 05:08:40 PM »
I’m a pretty big believer in muscle memory, habits (both good & bad) and how you practice will come home to roost should you ever find yourself in a life and death defensive shooting.

I know we’re all taught to “shoot to end the threat” {only}.  And observations at shooting ranges provides ample opportunity to see many shooters take a stand, fire a round, pause to check, take another shot, pause again to check and so on - NOT a very realistic defensive shooting practice, IMHO. 

Over the years, I’ve been strongly influenced by a couple lines of thought.  The first had to do with carrying a 380ACP (not up for debate concerning the topic of this thread - a measure beyond my control).  And the second thought was how long the human body can stay active (threatening) after being shot - assuming no shot to the central nervous system (i.e., CNS kill shot). 

So I began to incorporate a reasonably fast second follow-up shot into my range practice routine with the little pocket gun.  A ‘double tap’ (for lack of a better term) to the center of mass.  A practice I still do, to this day even though a mouse gun is not usually my main EDC any longer.

Thoughts? Comments?  Anybody else practice an initial two shot (or more) defensive engagement?

Defensive Tactics / Stopping Power
« on: August 15, 2018, 11:34:16 AM »
Here’s yet another study - video released earlier this year - on firearm caliber verses “stopping power”.  It’s view is a little from the prepper perspective.
