Thanks everyone!
They tell me I'm now 40, but I can't believe it. Supposedly, you are only as old as you feel, so I figure I must be 50...at least when waking up.

Gee Ship, I got 4 hammers, a big vise,a welder, screwdrivers and "an arsenal" of guns (according to the sorry state of New Jersey).

Don't I qualify?

We met at the range near West Oaks Mall in Houston. Do not know if that range is still there.

That's American Shooting Center, and it's still one of the best public ranges around.

Sorry Ocho, I don't have a spare or I would be happy to help.

I had my fair share of spankings, from hands, belts, boards, and switches.
Spent some time standing in corners, doing extra chores, and grounded as well.
Took a while, but seems to have worked.

I saw it, and thought it was pretty good. Far better than "The Last Jedi" social justice warrior flick.

Bersa Thunder 380, as it was my only gun. Think I had 2 points down.
For the LTC Instructor qualification I have used my M&P Pro 9 5" and 8" Nickle Colt Python and shot perfect scores.

I had two nice conversations with people while I was open carrying at the barber shop today.
A husband and wife who have their LTCs and were curious about open carry, over the normal concerns, and a guy who recently moved to Texas from North Dakota and wanted to know how to get his LTC.
Invited them to come out and shoot some IDPA/USPSA to get more comfortable with defensive/dynamic shooting.
Is that the first time you have been approached with positive inquiries while you OC? Any negative remarks? Just curious. Don't OC myself but respect the practice. 

I've been approached around 20 times, and every encounter was pleasant. Most have been a simple "are you a cop?" leading to an explanation of why I prefer to provide my own defense of self and family, with many turning to "how do you get a license to carry?" and detailed explanation provided.

Some have been thanks for carrying, or questions about what I am carrying and if it would be good for them or their spouse.

Even been given free stuff at two different restaurants as a thanks for carrying.

Handguns and Revolvers / Re: What handgun is next on your list?
« on: August 21, 2018, 08:03:12 AM »
Okay, well, now I'm on the fence about .45's and can't decide what to get.

I wanna stick with the RIA 51567, which is a 14+1... However, I just recently found out about the Remington 96491, which is rumored to be a 15+1, and more importantly, is essentially the same price as the RIA offering.

The extra round really doesn't mean much to me in the end; what I'm more concerned about is the quality of each firearm. I've never bought RIA before; I only know they are geared more toward making ultra budget 1911's. However, although the R1 might be a nicer overall quality pistol, didn't Remington somewhat recently keel over? I imagine that would make it impossible to get any warranty work done (should I need it), right?

Go with the Rock, they are very nice for budget 1911's, and available cheaper such as:
