General Gun Discussion / Re: ..anyone shot or visited this new range ?..
« on: January 15, 2017, 12:40:33 PM »
I don't reload, so really don't care much.  All of the indoor ranges I've been to, they won't let you pick up your brass (according to the rules).  However, I've picked up my brass at Athena without issue.

Saddle River actually has a "surveillance" room in the center of the range (reminds me of Vegas...or prison) where they watch every lane on monitors and an employee came out and told me I was not allowed to pick up my own brass, even behind the shooting line.

I shot there....once, and I'll never go back.  They don't allow reloads; you're not allowed to pick up your own brass, that you paid for; and they're more expensive than other ranges in the area. 

They cater to "The Woodlands" clientele, who have more dollars than sense.  Just take a look at their membership prices...on par with a country club membership.

General Gun Discussion / What was your last gun you bought?
« on: October 23, 2016, 02:36:00 PM »
I picked up a Taurus 85UL at the Woodlands gun show a couple weeks ago.  I was surprised at the accuracy for a 2" revolver.

The wife & I stopped in on the way to Kroger and shopped around for a bit.  She picked up a new pepper spray and purse knife.  As we were walking back to the truck, I said "I almost went back to that first table and bought that little revolver."  Her reply was "Why didn't you?"   I headed back in before she could change her mind.

Introduce Yourself / New from The Woodlands

Howdy neighbor.  I live in Grogan's Mill, near the DQ (where my son works).  Sounds like we have quite a bit in common...I have a manufacturing and Construction background, I'm an amateur woodworker (build furniture, cabinets, did my own mantel and built my own acoustic guitar (also do guitar repairs).  I'm an industrial mechanic by trade but I've worked on cars for as long as I can remember...I've only had a car to a mechanic shop once (for warranty work).  I'm always taking things apart to see why they don't work...and most of the time I even get them back together with a minimum of parts leftover.    Fooled around with photography back when 35mm was still alive...loved shooting B&W, developing and printing my own.

I can't make this one (working in WV) but I'd be interested in making it in the future.

So....since I have black ancestors, who were slaves, but I'm white....does that mean I should take it out of checking and put it into savings, or vice versa?

This signature is AWESOME!!!

Yep...New World is your guy.  Last I knew, a few months ago, his transfer prices were $15 without CHL or $10 with CHL

The logical choice, based on their requirements, would be the FN 5.7....what they haven't taken into account, it appears, is availability of ammo.  If we're the only military using the 5.7, it makes confiscating ammo almost impossible.  At least with 9mm, almost every country in the world use it so you can "liberate" ammo from captured enemies or ones who are otherwise incapacitated (dead)

I had it for a while and used the lockout service once for a friend who had locked her keys and baby (in a car seat) in the car with the engine running while she took her older one into school.  I told them I was driving the car and they had someone there in 10 minutes to unlock it.   Both of my new vehicles have Roadside Assistance included in the financing so I don't pay for AAA anymore.

General Gun Discussion / Re: Who has had to draw weapon

As a civilian, never had to draw. As a LEO...only twice and only fired one of those two times.

Beware of the old soldier...he has years of pent-up aggression waiting for a reason to be unleashed.   And I'm sure he hasn't forgotten his training, just like I haven't.    I just haven't had to kill anyone in over 20 years...and hope I never have to again.  That doesn't mean that I wouldn't should the need arise.

Any way of finding out their membership prices?

We used the MP5 when I went through door gunner training back in '89

Command Post on the 45 North feeder near Airtex has foot lockers.  Not sure of the price though

Im not surprised...I lived in that S***hole for 20 years.  While working at a sanitary lift station one day, a woman, who was walking and texting, walked right through/past our barrier and fell 18 feet into the underground station.  After that, we had to hire extra people to stand outside of the station and physically stop people from walking into the giant hole in the sidewalk.  I say physically because they usually have earbuds in with music drowning out those annoying sounds like horns, sirens, and people yelling "hey, dumbass, watch out for that hole".

I just find it very ironic that a forum centered around one of the more violent sports is so opposed to guns.

I remember learning to write programs in Basic on an Apple IIe in high school.  Our local Chevy dealer donated 20 of them to the school...because the owner's three kids were in school there.   He also donated our Driver's Ed car every year...when I took it, it was a Doo-Doo brown Chevy Citation.

I'm probably going to relegate my Stoeger Cougar.45 to nightstand duty after I get back from my current pipeline assignment and have enough $$ to pick up a Springfield XD in .40 S&W.
