Off Topic Discussion (NON FIREARM RELATED) / Getting back on my feet
« on: July 02, 2019, 05:56:29 PM »
Kidney disease that has been in partial remission the last few years reared it's head last week. Kind of knocked me down for a few days but after a new round of (expensive) meds and I'm feeling much better. Kidney function is at 30%, which is the best I can hope for, so no dialysis.
So I've been catching up on the threads here on TGF and will be responding appropriately.

Strolling along the creek bed about a 1/2 mile from the house.


The article is pretty lame until you get to Mayor Pete the homosexual from Indiana:

"Mayor Pete Buttigieg said his favorite trail snack is beef jerky — which supporters sometimes give him at events."

Ya know I wasn't going to go there but some sh** just writes itself.  :icon_wink:

Handguns and Revolvers / A rare find
« on: June 07, 2019, 05:59:51 PM »
Forgot to put up a photo when I bought this a couple of weeks ago. Model 57 N Frame S&W .41 Magnum. It's absolutely flawless. Just pristine. Not saying it's realrare but you just don't see them that much especially in this condition. Last time I saw one just like this was at a show two years ago. It had a $1500 price tag. I paid far less than that.
A little history from Wikipedia:
In the early 1960s, Elmer Keith, Bill Jordan, and Skeeter Skelton, all noted firearms authorities and authors, lobbied Remington Arms and Smith & Wesson to introduce a new .41 caliber police cartridge with the objective of filling a perceived ballistic performance gap between the .357 and .44 Magnums, thus creating a chambering which they believed would be the ultimate for law enforcement purposes.[1] In April 1964 Remington responded by introducing the .41 Magnum cartridge, and in concert, Smith & Wesson launched the Model 57 revolver chambered for the new ammunition.[1] Elmer Keith originally proposed the name ".41 Police" for the new cartridge, but Remington instead chose .41 Magnum, hoping to capitalize on the notoriety and popularity of its earlier Magnum offerings.[1]

Fully functional battery operated clock with hidden storage space

I have one on a table in the hallway by my front door. This photo shows my Ruger LCRx in .38 Sp +P and a 1,000Lum flashlight. I recently swapped the Ruger for a Glock Model 33 in .357 Sig.

Off Topic Discussion (NON FIREARM RELATED) / Are you kidding me

From Fox news/Can't get the link to work.

"California State University's campus in Long Beach is ditching its longtime mascot amid accusations of racism and officially moving to pick either a new symbol or have no mascot at all.
The university ditched its "Prospector Pete" character in September after criticism that it was offensive to indigenous people"  :sick2:

I've been sitting here thinking of new mascot names:
The U. Cal Long Beach Gay Caballeros
The U. Cal Long Beach Fightin' Trannys

I've got a couple others but they are NSFW

This was my original post on the subject:
Apparently the Texas Speaker of the House didn't disclose the complete facts. GD politicians. I should have known better. Now, as Paul Harvey use to say, the rest of the story.

Texas Tribune 4/23/19

Weeks after getting in a confrontation with Texas House Speaker Dennis Bonnen at a closed-door Republican dinner, gun rights activist Chris McNutt asked for an apology for what he said amounted to having his name “dragged through the mud.”

“They’ve painted this narrative of this outraged gun activist,” McNutt told The Texas Tribune after a press conference he had Tuesday afternoon inside the JW Marriott hotel in downtown Austin. “It just makes me looks like a complete nut job.”

During Tuesday’s news conference, McNutt accused Bonnen, R-Angleton, of lying when he told Lubbock radio host Chad Hasty that the gun rights activist “flashed his gun” when he visited lawmakers’ local district offices. McNutt said he was unarmed during such visits.

Rather than comment on claims McNutt made this afternoon, a spokeswoman for Bonnen said that “it appears someone has forgotten the law of holes.”

“If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging,” Bonnen spokeswoman Cait Meisenheimer said in a statement to The Texas Tribune.

Bonnen previously accused the gun rights activist of using intimidation tactics to get a bill McNutt supports through the legislature. McNutt, the executive director of Texas Gun Rights, blames Bonnen for inaction on “constitutional carry” legislation that would allow Texans to carry guns without a permit.

But the author of a constitutional carry bill said he stopped pushing for the legislation in the Capitol after McNutt showed up in lawmakers' neighborhoods — including Bonnen’s — to lobby for the legislation. Before he could go to the House speaker’s residence, however, McNutt approached Texas Department of Public Safety officers who, Meisenheimer said, had insisted on monitoring Bonnen’s home after learning that McNutt visited the residences of two lawmakers the day before.

Weeks after appearing in Bonnen's neighborhood while the speaker was in Austin, McNutt was seated close to the House leader at a fundraising dinner. Bonnen approached McNutt, chided him for his previous actions and eventually left the dinner, skipping out on a speech the speaker was scheduled to give.

During Tuesday’s press conference, however, McNutt refuted claims that he was ever on the speaker’s property. He said he canvassed “multiple other neighborhoods” in two other legislators' districts to “turn up the pressure on the speaker of the House.”

“When I was in the speaker’s neighborhood canvassing, I saw DPS troopers posted outside of his house, so I actually approached them,” he said. “I wasn’t intercepted, detained, arrested or anything. I told them what I was doing and they offered to place the fliers that I had on the speaker’s door for me.”

Joining McNutt on Tuesday was Jesse Binnall, a Virginia attorney who represents Texas Gun Rights. Without offering specifics, Binnall said his office was investigating whether “Bonnen’s intimidation tactics involved the misappropriation of state resources.”

McNutt presented recently released body cam footage from the DPS that he obtained from the agency through an open records request. According to the department's account of the events, which was sent to The Texas Tribune, McNutt identified himself to officers outside Bonnen's residence while wearing a "blue Texas Gun Rights shirt and blue jeans."
"I stated I would be more than happy to drop off the flyer at the residence and he handed me the flyer, and gave me one as well as a business card," said DPS trooper James Johnson. "McNutt stated he was from the Dallas area and flew down here, rented a car and was going to visit Representative Bonnen and his people.
"McNutt did not make any threatening statements towards Representative Bonnen's people or myself. I did not observe McNutt wearing any type of firearm at that time. After a brief conversation McNutt drove out of the neighborhood without incident."
McNutt and Dudley Brown, president of the National Association for Gun Rights, didn't place any blame Tuesday for the constitutional bill's failure on its author, state Rep. Jonathan Stickland, R-Bedford.
"The speaker intended to kill this bill the moment he appointed an anti-gun Democratic to chair the committee he assigned the bill to," McNutt said, referencing state Rep. Poncho Nevrez, D-Eagle Pass, who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee.

Gun News & Laws / Constitutional Carry in Texas is dead this session
« on: April 06, 2019, 02:05:57 PM »
Not that I thought the current legislation had a chance of passing and landing on the Governor's desk for his signature these fine folks made sure that it's dead on arrival. Showing up at a state representatives private residence to confront him or her and their families doesn't cut it with me. That's something done by the Maxine Waters types of this world not responsible owners of firearms.

Handguns and Revolvers / S&W M&P .380 EZ
« on: March 08, 2019, 04:08:10 PM »
I actually bought this for my wife thinking she may prefer it over the Bersa Thunder .380 she has. It has everything she likes, lightweight, thumb safety, great sights, decent trigger and the .380 caliber. She thought it was OK but not enough to make a change.
I like it just fine though. Have it in my hiding place by the front door but may work it into my EDC rotation.

Handguns and Revolvers / Kel Tec's new 33 +1 22LR Model CP 33
« on: January 23, 2019, 05:42:16 PM »
For the most part I like Kel Tec and think they are an innovative company. In the past five years I have had a few. Two I didn't like the PLR 16, a jammomatic no matter the ammo, and the Sub 2000 in 9mm which is really a decent carbine but just wasn't right for me. Two I did like The .22 Magnum 30 +1 PMR pistol and the carbine version the CMR 30.
I've been looking for a .22LR and was really considering a Browning Buckmark or another Ruger Mark series although the Ruge'rs are a b***h to clean. These new Kel Tec's are getting good reviews but, unfortunately like the PMR 30 and other KEL TEC products, I believe production won't meet initial demand. It took me four years to finally get my hands on a PMR which, in hindsight, I'm OK with as the first production models had keyhole issues which Kel Tec has since corrected.
Depending on price, which I'm going to guess the CP 33 will be right around $400, I'll probably be willing to wait. Like to shoot one first though.
