I have 4 that I use.

My main one for 3+ years is my HK P2000 9mm (DA/SA). I sometimes carry a P2000sk 9mm, if I want the grip to not stick out so much.

I swap the P2000 with a Walther P99 A/S on occasion, the last few months. And, when I cannot carry any of those 3, I use a Ruger LCP 380

How do you like that P2000? Ive heard good things about that?

I dont have my CHL yet but my primary at the moment is my Beretta APX Combat.

I love it. I got a police model with 3 mags and factory night sights.

I owned a P2000 back in 2008 or so. It was my favorite HK model, but I needed money to buy something else, so I eventually sold it.

I found that I missed the gun. So, I bought another one (the one I have now) about 3.5 years ago. It has been my main carry gun over that time.

I have owned something like 12 HKs over the past 20+ years. The P2000 is my favorite of all the HK models. But, I like the DA/SA P2000 model, not the LEM trigger version

Dem candidate in Kansas slammed for poster of Wonder Woman lassoing cop




Quote
The Democratic-backed candidate running for Kansas State Attorney General has been called on by her own party to drop out because of a poster hung in her law office that depicts Wonder Woman lassoing a police officer around the neck.

Attorney Sarah Swain apologized after she was criticized heavily by law enforcement groups, who argued that the image promoted violence against police officers.

The state Democratic Party agreed, adding that the poster is grounds for disqualification for the attorney general’s office.

“We strongly condemn and reject any depiction of violence against law enforcement, including the image from Swain’s law firm,” the party said in a statement. “We did not recruit or encourage Swain to run for attorney general, nor have we had any contact with her since she filed.”

They would, if you have a place to plug it in at by your safe, and you have one of those holes in  the safe to run the wife through.
This explains a lot.  :th_thicon_lol:

That was supposed to be WIRE  :th_thicon_lol:

I use two EVA Dry E-500 and take one out to plugin every few weeks to keep them rotated. Never had any problems and they dry out well with an overnight plugged in.
Bought my first in 2012 and second in 2013 and working perfectly.
If you are having to dry them out that often, your safe is either not close to air tight, or you open it a lot.
Mine is typically opened twice a day on average, and is a 25 gun Liberty Timber Ridge.

Well, the Remington ones DO have a lifetime. And, whenever I get a new one, then it lasts a lot longer for the first year or two.

Over time, thru repeated use, those little drying beads inside do wear out. I usually only open my safe 2x a day. I've had the safe long enough, and gone thru 3 or 4 of those little Remington dehumidifiers (pretty much the same as what was shown here, just a different shape) that I know about how long they last.

I do leave them plugged in over night, but they still last less and less as time goes by. At least the ones I have owned do...

So might the $30 rod heaters work better / longer?

They would, if you have a place to plug it in at by your safe, and you have one of those holes in  the safe to run the wire through.

I used to have my safe in a closet, and I had no power plug.

I am fine with what I am doing, though. I will probably just buy another one soon

Yes, they don't last as long over time.

I am on my 3rd or 4th one total

When it is new, they last about 2 weeks. After a while, its down to 1. Mine is 4 years old, and I need a new one.... Mine lasts maybe 4 days now.

I have the Remington one - with a 5 year warranty. It was a free replacement because the last one didn't last the 5 years. This one has lasted longer than my last one.

But, it probably should be replaced every 3-4 years

Ammunition / Re: Velocity, and what we need to know!
« on: June 18, 2018, 04:28:44 PM »

U 2 need to get a room at the Dumbass Motel! The reason I've given data from handload manuals is because that's what a handloader would be most concerned with.

And let me point out something to you personally Mr. Azz: I was once involved in a design project involving 32 schools in the Lubbock ISD in the late 80s. My designs got a Texas Licensed Irrigator stamp, but the consulting company decided that they needed an engineering firm which kinda rocked the dumbass I worked for that had been born with a silver spoon up his ass. 31 of those systems were utter failures. Wanna guess which one worked? The designer? A 29 year old with a 2 year degree in Design Drafting Technology.

Later, I took a position where I earned additional certifications for Life Safety Systems: Fire Alarm and Fire Sprinkler systems from manufacturers as well as the NFPA. Later, I added another design certification from the BOSE Sound Corp.

In other words, I know a little something about the SOS through different mediums, while on the other hand, where you 2 clowns couldn't construct a decent handload if your lives depended on it. It's engineers like you, working under the lead Architect that convinced the City of New York that the Twin Towers could withstand a direct impact from a Boeing 707; the most common passenger airliner when that project began. Or, the balcony that collapsed in a KC hotel because the structural engineer never considered a greater load need be considered.

And, BTW, even though there were influences on me to become an Architect or Engineer, I chose service to my country first and had a security clearance that none of you demo-commies would come close to qualifying for. If I had my way, no one would even be allowed to enter an engineering degree program without a minimum passing score in Spatial Relationships.

If this question was live, neither of you nitwits could find the simple solution for KE of an arbitrary handload.

It's rather obvious that you both have some pretty serious inferiority complexes. At least Psyc gives some hint about that by his screen name. You, on the otherhand, I noticed (and with your engineering degree) trying to make an impression with a supercilious term, TRANSONIC, which is defined simply as the velocity between Mach 0.8 and Mach 1.2.

Hell, I bet I knew more about Mach in elementary school that you clowns! My life, post that event in Lubbock, has been designing for engineers without a clue, even in their own fields of discipline.

It's dipshits like U 2 that prevent the earnestly interested from learning correct methods.
Even at my own risk of being uninvited from this forum, I surely want to express my opinion that the 2 of utes are totally incompetent on anything ballistic.

Ok, K-Texas, you are done here. I Have bolded the specific comments you made on your last thread in order to show specifically WHY you are banned. You should re-read the forum rules that you agreed to when you joined this forum.

Your personal attacks are way out of hand and totally uncalled for.


Forum Rule #2 specifically states:

How many handguns do you guys use for carry? Just 1? You have 3 or 4 and rotate depending on the circumstances?

Handguns and Revolvers / Re: Kimber 1911

For just a little more, you can get a Dan Wesson

Haven't shot one of those. 
Why is it better?

Their Valor series is considered the nicest production 1911s. The next step up are semi customs, like Ed Browns, Nighthawk, etc.

If you check in the search box, you probably can find my old review of the two Valors here on the forum. I had a stainless Valor 5" model, and a duty coat VBOB. I've also owned two Ed Brown Special Forces 1911s and a Springfield Custom Shop 1911 in years past. I actually liked that stainless Valor more than any of the others. Just the feel of it in my hand, and the feel of the checkering they used - the gun just felt great in the hand. I also really liked the sights that DW uses on their Valor models...

They have 2 dot sights - but the front dot has white paint around the tritium. Much easier to see with the white paint around the front dot than a silver ring, as some other 2 dot sights have.

Thanks guys.

I shot one and it felt great, incredibly smooth trigger, well managed recoil and the balance was excellent.  I didn't notice any feed issues but I did notice the prices, which seem to be above alternatives proffered.  Thanks.

The EMP seems like a good 9mm gun.

IMHO, the best, "nice" and non semi custom gun maker is Dan Wesson. I've owned 13 1911s over the years. The two Dan Wesson Valors I've owned were my favorites.

Friends don't let friends buy Kimber 1911's.

Just sayin

I sorta agree. Their 5" steel models are "okay."

I would never get a smaller version Kimber. And, I made the mistake of buying an aluminum framed one back around 2003. Never again
