    Ruger P95 any good?

    I prefer metal framed Rugers over any of their polyguns. That said... I have owned just about all the Ruger P series except a P90, and the P94. Had no use for a .40, and the P90 is a second string wish list gun. Echoing Pepper, the P89 is a damn lazer. Its a gun tgat proves bore axis does not necessarily mean a thing in felt recoil, accuracy, or balance. And Hogue grips are a must for metal Rugers. Stock grips are slipperier than a piglet covered in Astroglide when wet. So are polymet P gun frames. Stippling or an innertube grip sleeve are a must. Triggers are long, not horribly heavy. I have had a Sig with worse trigger. I carried a P97 for a time whilest doing armed alarm response security. The P95 is a good gun, my preference would be the last generation, that the Army adopted for tank crews. It had a less slippery grip, and a rail for a light. Add a light to a Ruger P series and you may as well be shooting a .22 - theres no muzzle rise. They are great beaters. They were even better at $289 NIB with 2 mags. Now Ruger p guns go for $400+ regularly.

    Locking up your guns.

    So this is a hot button topic and has generated 20+ pages of discussion on a local firearms forum. After reading the back and forth I came up with a thought, which got me into a pissing match with another fellow even tho we are pretty much on the same page on most things. Heres my idea for safe storage: throughout the discussion on the other board poibts were brought up about what is considered secure - does it need to be bolted to walls or the floor, what about well hidden guns that are not readily accessible, like with tactical walls, furniture that doubles as gun storage etc. Good points, and I don't claim my idea is perfect, but IF we had to have another damn law, I would much rather live under my propisal, rather than draconian shat like Oregon's ballot initiative proposal 44 - thats a secure storage law that mandates individual guns be locked up individually in locked containers, and makes a gun owner liable for any wrongdoing with a firearm they sell for 5 years after its sold. Yes, its insane. So my idea of voluntary safe storage, with a reward of legal shielding for safe storage and allowing civil or criminal charges in a very narrow set of circumstances would be far more preferable. i grew up in a house that never had a gunsafe. We had a wooden rack with a Winchester 94, a Sears 20 gauge bolt action shotgun, and an occasional .22 hanging on the wall. Old man kept a .38 J frame smith and a Beretta Jetfire .22 in his dresser drawer. i never played with them, touched them, or went near without permission. I had bb guns and toy guns aplenty. I knew if I touched a real gun without asking, I would get whipped, literally. Old man had an 8 foot long bull whip with leather cracker strap, and he used that leather strap on occasion as a disciplinary measure. I wanted no part of that. me - I keep my guns locked up. I keep my edc on the nightstand when I am asleep, otherwise its on me or on the table/desk within arms reach. I take it with when I get up to take a crap. i have tested the boy before without his knowledge, and he's never touched my gun when I was not looking, or without asking. He's starting to learn to shoot. He's shot a .22 and a couple rounds (with help) from a 9mm. He has his own bb gun, but times are different, and we don't live in the sticks like I did as a kid. I felt like schitt when an AR lower was stolen from my locked trunk - I don't want to know what it feels like to have a complete gun taken and used for criminal use, or my kid hurts himself with it. I do not want any more laws, but realize they are coming, so if we have to have them, I would rather we get in front and craft laws that protect our rights vs selling them away or just trampling on them. secure storage laws are only enforcable after a tragedy has happened. More laws rarely prevent crime, especially those by motivated criminals. i would rather we fix our broken society, than to loose more freedom. I wish we could fix things without more damn laws.

    Royal Wedding

    Eh. Doom and gloom aren't all there is, but I'd rather watch Bill Dance flip a jig into a brush pile and catch a 12 inch bass, or watch Minions with the kiddo than anything to deal with our distant Brit cousins, especially anything with the royals. Except Top Gear / Grand Tour. Those brits are A Okay Pomp and circumstance are boring, I would've skipped out on my own wedding and gone straight to the honeymoon, if it weren't for the wife insisting upon it. We had like, 30 guests total, catered it ourselves, and got hitched in a public park, by a circuit court judge. 2nd best part was watching Pepper escort Shrek (wife's 300lb tomato red haired former friend, who wore a green dress) down the 'isle' Best part was getting out of Dodge and heading to the Oregon coast for a week, before heading into the mountains to camp for another week of the honeymoon.

    Royal Wedding

    0 fornications given. Bunch of goofy spoiled rich people stroking each others egos on the tax payers dime. Our ancestors threw the yolk of Brit oppression off 243 years ago, I don't get how any Americans care so much about royalty that has nothing to do with our lives.

    A vava, hooya, cooter pistol. Who wants it?

    Sniff it, if it smells like tuna, soak it in bleech. If it smells lime trout, soak it in gas and burn the cooties off. Hose down with carb cleaner. Soak in 10W40 for a day or three. Reassemble, wipe down, give to the wife as a hideout piece
  6. Ohmygod you can't be that naive to think the Russians wanted Trump in office, when Hildabeast was far more sympathetic to their cause and far more politically aligned. The media and lefties - and many republicans - cannot decide if Trump is a Russian puppet or a Russian agent, or is going to start WW3 because he provokes them. Can't be both. They are throwing crap against the,wall to see what sticks. The best they can come up with is an affair that happened with a porn star a decade before he ever thought of running for office. Not illegal. May not even be breaking the bond with his wife - they could be swingers or agree that shagging others is OK. Attacking his lawyer is showing desperation. Funny that the porn stars lawyer just got outed for his own evil deeds. Shawn Spicer was right, if Trump ate Russian salad dressing, he's colluding with Moscow. Here's a crazy f'n thought - 60 years of Russia being Bad Guy No 1 has not worked great for world peace and economic prosperity - if we make nice with them we can make allies, and team up to crush the march of the political cult known as Islam which is trying to take down the western world. They are invading Europe and trying here in our own borders as well. The GWOT could go a lot better if two of the most formidable powers on the planet joined forces rather than poking at one another. McCain is a war hawk, he'd vote to go full scale against Russia if Putin sent him a nasty meme. Hillary sold out our uranium to Ruskies. She was flapping her gums about war with Russia. Putting it simply - There is NO Russian influence in the US Government, Mueller's investigation is a McCarthy style witch hunt. Trump should squash it, Fire Sessions, and move on with fixing the damage his predecessors left.

    Richard Overton, oldest living veteran, turns 112

    Bless this man, he's a living history book. I'd love to pick his brain about what he thinks of this country and the direction it's taken over the last century.
  8. Yes, the Justice Department should get to work doing their job. They should investigate and indict McCain, both Clintons, Obama, Mueller, Comey, Holder, Lynch, McCabe, and everyone they associated with that colluded to undermine the security of the United States, violate the Constitution, and conspire to commit multiple felonies including treason. You are fixated on McCain's veteran status and age - the only relevant bit being his age. He's old and he has cancer. Millions of other people are old and dying of cancer, and they haven't done the evil deeds that this man has. They didn't sell out their countrymen, violate their oaths, and work with enemy agents. Not everyone deserves respect. Respect gets earned, not automatically awarded. Living a long time doesn't wash away one's actions or give them a pass or magically make people like or respect them. Donald Trump has lived more than 7 decades on this planet himself - do you respect him? How about Dick Cheney or papa Bush? George Soros is pretty damned old, does that entitle him to respect and happy thoughts too? Eh, you're probably a Soros fan. Nope - Johnny Mac doesn't deserve respect. He's a traitor and a scumbag, he shouldn't get an honor guard, shouldn't get a state funeral, and his remains should be cremated and put in a little unmarked cardboard box, then thrown in the trash and forgotten. The sooner we can forget about him and move on as a nation, the better. Lets hope that Arizona's governor or legislature picks a far better replacement. Neither of Arizona's senators are worth two squirts of milk from a meth-mama's teets.

    Seems to me one world gov is the end goal

    As big a Star Trek nerd I am - I recognize it's pure fiction. It depicts humans in essentially our best form, sloughing off most of our greed, doing away with the need for a capitalist system because technology has advanced to the point of 'free' energy, the ability to synthesize anything you can imagine, world hunger is a centuries old memory, and people stopped killing each other over things like religion, skin color, and political affiliation - for the most part. Of course Star Trek uses alien races to depict humanities worst traits and cliche's. Humans are too diverse a group - ethnically, religiously, politically, fiscally - to ever agree on one system of government. Here in the US, we do not even live under one single government - we are a federation of individual states, with their own governors and law making bodies, and within those states are further subdivisions with law making bodies and enforcement agents. And among those varied layers of government there is division, infighting, pettiness and pure unadulterated greed, stupidity, and malice. We cannot have a government that even 50% of the populace likes or agrees with. To think that we could somehow get 5.5 billion other people to agree with us on how things should be? No thank you. The Romans, the Brits, the Mongols and the Germans all attempted world dominance at one point, and they couldn't make it work. One world government and a globalist agenda are antithetical to individual liberty and freedom and simply would not work without the "cleansing" of undesirable people who do not agree with The Party. If we became full on empire builders - we could not pull it off. We can't even get the goat humping farmers in southwestern Asia to stop killing each other over minor interpretations of their holy books and implementation of religious law, to think we'll all come together in human harmony even 500 years from now is fantasy. Thousands of years of human history are a good predictor of the future. No government in the world has ever lasted. We're witnessing the slow, managed decline of our government, the British empire, the German people - and the people pulling the strings have the goal of a totalitarian one-world regime. Bush Sr ran his flaps about it 30 years ago. It's as scary now as it was then. As for alien contact, and becoming part of a greater galactic neighborhood...again, Star Trek is a Utopian view of the future. Starship Troopers or Enders Game is likely a more accurate indicator of how we would react to alien life. We are, at our core, conquerors. IF we get to the point where we have ships capable of faster than light travel, and the ability to seek out new life and new civilizations, we'll probably come bearing gifts of zero point energy or antimatter bombs, high energy particle beam weapons, or even just plain old thermonuclear missiles and we'll find a way to F things up and start a war with the Ewoks AND the Klingons. Nope - not on board with any one world government nonsense, and don't see it as ever being a realistic "accomplishment" of the human race, not without exterminating a large part of said race, and brainwashing the rest anyway.

    AmeriGlo Protector Sights First Impression

    If you wind up not liking the rear sight that comes on yours, AmeriGlo does sell this rear sight individually, IIRC it's less than $30. You said one was supposedly coming with the plastic sights, right?
  11. I got a swinging trade deal for my Sig 220 last month, and wound up with a Gen 4 G17, my first Gen 4 glock. I think, had I jumped on the gen 4 a few years ago, I would not be the M&P whore I am today. This is the first Glock in a long time I don't ferl the need to sand, stipple, or change out mag release on. I still don't love the slide stop, but am not changing it. The gun came with crappy Glock poly sights. Blech. I ordered a set of AmeriGlo Protector sights, which pairs their Pro Dot front sight with a blacked out ledge style serrated rear sight. Less than $60 from eCop supply in Texas. I had just enough time to install them before heading to work, but wowza they are nice. A few mins of quick presentations, the neon green front sight is stupid fast to pick up, and the rear sight was totally non distracting. I like these more than XS big dots, and those are quick to pick up. The green dot also seems easier to pick up than a white dot. I will get pics of the installed sights tonight when home, but these seem to be a winner. The rear sight did take about 100 laps on a flat file before it fit far enough in the sight channel to drift it in. I wish M&P sights were as easy as Glock sights to install. I also wish AmeriGlo made comparable sights for the M&P but the closest combo I can get is a thin U notched rear with the Pro Dot front sight. Will probably just put I Dot Pros on the M&P as they are cheaper and have a wider rear notch.
  12. Having used paddles extensively once upon a time, I decided I'm not a fan anymore. For open carry, the gun tilting out is OK, but not for CC. And for OC, the gun should be anchored to the belt so a guy can't just rip holster & all off the belt in a gun grab. Does Galco have a belt slide or pancake to fit your blaster till a custom rig shows up? Or can you find a kydex holster for it?

    Tinnitus: PSA for the Day

    With tinnitus, you are never alone. That 'friend' the ringing never leaves you. Makes enjoying peaceful quiet times difficult sometimes, because the ringing is worse when theres no background noise.
