Quote
A sign visible in the home’s front window reads, “No Trespassing,” and “Violators will be shot. Survivors will be shot again!”

I loved Miami Vice. So, a white, 80s vintage Testarossa.

I was partial to the black Ferrari Daytona that Crocket started with. It was a replica built on a Corvette chassis, but it was still cool.

Yes, I remembered that the Daytona was not original. But, I still liked the white Testarossa more

Defensive Tactics / Re: Accuracy: Combat or Target?
« on: April 15, 2019, 03:14:15 PM »
I think over 90% of self defense shootings are less than 7 yards, with the vast majority under 3 yards.

Still... I want target accuracy - that translates to combat accuracy.

I shoot a target on a sheet of paper. It is reversed colored. White inner circle, and black outer circle. Much, much easier to shoot at than a black inner circle.

If I can put an entire mag inside of the smaller white circle - at 7 yards, target shooting, I am satisfied with that. I have slight tremors in my left hand that has gotten a little worse as I have gotten older. But, I notice that it lessens if I go shoot in the afternoon as opposed to the morning.

I always wish I can shoot better - but when I shoot with my favorite gun, I am usually one of the better shooters on the range. I do well enough. Because of physical limitations, I've gotten about as accurate in target shooting as I can be.

Looks interesting but 5K?  At that price the Alien pistol just alienated the majority of handgun enthusiasts.

Sho nuff  :afraid4:

Sho nuff. I ever leave mine unlocked even when I am at home. But then, considering my job, I have a built in "fan club" I have to keep an eye out for

Judge who blocked California's ban on high-capacity magazines halts their sales for now


Quote
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A federal judge on Friday halted sales of high-capacity ammunition magazines in California, giving state officials a chance to appeal his order last week that allowed their sale for the first time in nearly 20 years.

U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez barred further sales until the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals considers whether to reinstate the state's ban on magazines holding more than 10 bullets.

But the judge said those who bought the extended magazines since his initial order a week ago may keep them without fear of being prosecuted while the appeal proceeds.

Ammunition / Re: FYI - Sale at Academy - 9mm

I shot 3 boxes earlier today, using guns I don't usually shoot that often. So, I replaced what I shot.

Yes, the storm hit right after I went shooting

I went shooting this morning. And, I try to walk everyday - 3 different times. 4-6 miles a day total. Did 4.5 miles so far, and will probably go out a 4th time today (I have more time on weekends)
