Has anyone seen or heard from Tango?

Looking at his profile, it was the middle of November since the last time he was on the forum.

I am thinking about taking my knife making to the next level, and would like to start making custom knives to sell.

I am looking for input, advice, ideas and suggestions in taking on this endeavor, and would appreciate any feedback in this area.

Any thoughts or questions would also be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Today, in 1941, was our country's introduction into WW2 with the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Many brave men served and many died, fighting for our country.

God bless those brave men.

There are so few left that served in that war.

Politics, Gripes, Complaints / Trump Impeachment!

Should Trump be impeached?

Personally, I have to think it is just another dog and pony show, to muddy the issue, and to focus attention on Trump, instead of the real criminals, like Hillary, Obama, Biden's and others.

I have no illusions of Trump being perfect, but I do believe that he has honestly tried to deliver on the promises he made when running for the presidency.

MAGA! Trump again in 2020! :rocknroll2:

Handguns and Revolvers / Debunking 1911 Myths.
« on: November 19, 2019, 08:37:01 AM »
Some so-called experts like to claim that 1911's can't, or aren't reliable enough for carry as an EDC pistol for self-defense. Personally, I find this to be utterly ridiculous. Any modern pistol, including the 1911, can be reliable for carry as a self-defense pistol.


Two things that I focus on for any pistol that I might carry, are the magazines, and the ammo. Cheaping out on either on any semi-auto pistol is a sure way of asking for problems, especially at the most inopportune time.

This is especially true of 1911's as well. Buy quality magazines, and also take the time to find ammo that functions reliably in the pistol. This is where time at the range will be time well spent. This is when you want to find out any issues, not when you may be in a life or death situation.

Another factor to be aware of with 1911's is that they require more hands on in their care than polymer type pistols. This includes having an understanding of 1911's and how to properly inspect them for wear and when to replace critical components when needed.

More info to follow.

In light of the recent ruling, the SCOTUS is allowing the Sandy Hook families to proceed with their lawsuit against Remington. They are suing Remington simply because the AR that Adam Lanza used, was made by Remington. And as we all know, he took his mother's AR, after he killed her.

Yeah, makes perfect sense in an upside down world. So does that mean that victims of DUI should sue car manufacturers? And the list could go on and on.

So what about the other lamebrain, or off the wall lawsuits you have heard of, or read about? Post them up!

General Gun Discussion / Gun Channels, love or hate?

Does anyone else watch online gun channels?

Those you like, and those you just hate?

Some I like, are Hickock 45 , IraqVeteran8888, and couple of others. James Yeager, and American  Gun Chic,  both of them are idiots!

Gun News & Laws / Florida Man Guilty of Manslaughter....
« on: August 28, 2019, 01:55:27 AM »
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-florida-manslaughter/florida-man-guilty-of-manslaughter-in-test-of-stand-your-ground-law-reports-idUSKCN1VE0LB

He was found guilty of manslaughter, after trying to use Florida's Stand Your Ground law as his defense for fatally shooting someone.

Personally, given the evidence, I think the jury decided on the right verdict in this case. I have seen some people trying to compare this shooting, and SYG laws to the Zimmerman/Martin shooting of some years ago. Not hardly IMO. Apples to oranges comparison.

Now they also need to round up James Comey and Robert Mueller as well!

But here is the million dollar question. If they do decide to prosecute McCabe over his handling of the Hillary Clinton emails and such, I have to wonder if that means it's possible they might even go after her as well?

Hmmm......I guess it depends upon the particular circumstances as to whether the driver used the correct approach to the situation.

Opinions?

Politics, Gripes, Complaints / Liberal Forum Trolls............
« on: August 26, 2019, 04:37:16 PM »
Rant on! :scream3:

Why is that even in some gun forums, there always has to be that one liberal member that the only subjects they post on, are those that are political or controversial in nature? I have over the last year, pretty much liberated myself of many of the forums I use to belong to simply because of this garbage and nonsense. I don't mind discussing or conversing on subjects, and accept that not everyone is going to agree, or see things the same way. I'm totally cool with that, and even in disagreement with others with their opinions, or viewpoints, as long as a person is civil and respectful, I have no problem with that person, personally.

So far, I have run across two members of such description, (One who made only about two or three posts, then gone for whatever reason, and one I have placed on ignore. Never had to do that before here!) and it really tries my patience and reserved nature!  :bangheadonwall:

Am I the only that is going through this, or is there some shift in the character and manners of some people that they can't conduct themselves in courteous and respectful manner, even though in many ways they are behind their keyboards? It almost seems like a trend that is invading many forums of lately, and the larger the forum the worse the problem seems to be with a larger number of them acting in such a manner. Seriously makes a person question of whether to even log on to a forum and post out of just knowing that there is that one liberal troll looking to start an argument.

Okay, rant off!  :wave1:

I find it hilarious that these two congresswomen that have been so vocal against Israel, have now been barred entry into the country for a visit! Maybe they should learn how to keep their mouths shut! LOL!  :th_thicon_lol: :rocknroll2:

One of the original Bullitt movie Mustangs is going to auction.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/classic-cars/the-original-bullitt-mustang-is-headed-to-auction/ar-AAFQLMO?ocid=spartandhp

This is so cool, and I will venture the going price is going to be very, very high.

Found this article this morning, and read through it, and found it just reinforces some opinions I have about Democrats.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/worst-congressional-districts-for-black-americans/ss-AAFO6a7?ocid=spartandhp#image=31

It's Ironic, but the overwhelming majority of these congressional districts are represented by Democrats. Anoter ironic factor, is that many of these representatives are also some of the biggest Trump haters, and those also calling for his impeachment. Hmmmm....interesting to say the least. They can't even clean yp or take care of their own districts, but they propose to want to impeach our president, and tell him how bad he's running the country! Now if they had perfect congressional districts, they MIGHT have leg to stand on.
