    Bloomberg says minorities must be disarmed

    "....Bloomberg, 72, said 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: a male minority between the ages of 15 and 25, The Aspen Times reported." Ouch, these could all be Obummer's sons. Gotta wonder if Sharpton & friends will respond to this racism with some Riots or such in Everytown.
  2. We would be so much better off if the "Liberal-Progressive-Leftists" (aka Socialists) would stop labeling people and renewing the 'racist agenda' in order to further its anti-American goals. The recent riots were no different than the Detroit race riots of the 60s, which I watched as a teenager. These riots are always the result of political manipulation, inciters and the MEDIA forcing "non-events" into the National view. I'm glad I am now retired from LE. The same old cycle just keeps repeating itself with every elected racist President, Gov, Mayor, etc. Eight years ago, race was nearly a forgotten term, but then.......

    Has anybody seen this?

    When did Islam go from an oppressive government mandate to a legitimate Religion??
  4. I saw it here: http://www.glockforum.com/forum/f8/glock-21r-what-ur-thoughts-3485/ ,but doubt I'll ever own one. It is BUTT-UGLY ...... IMHO.

    For those of you looking for a Shield.

    Gone now, but price seems average in most areas. I got one in .40 last year for $400. out the door from a private owner who never shot it. 19 oz and only 0.95 inches thick, love it. Firearm prices are falling fast.

    WalMart ammo

    WOW! Talk about having your basic civil rights "infringed". No wonder it was on the shelf. I'd hate to need to drive to a 'Free State' just to buy my ammo. I recent paid over $400. (delivered) for 1k rounds of PMC 55gr FMJ ....... S Korean stuff, but good enough for the range. I won't touch my good stuff, but the range-grade in all my calibers is getting a bit costly. CT, CA, NY, IL, etc., need some serious changes to their Reps this November.
  7. I remember seeing a 2ga "goose-cannon" many years ago. The old 2 gauge and 1 gauge guns were more appropriately referred to as 'cannons' than shotguns. The 2 gauge could have used a 1/2 pound ball or smaller shot in more quantity; maybe 2 pounds of shot at a time. They were Huge & used foe commercial goose hunting & could whack 50 geese while sitting on a lake. They were fired from a stationary mount called a "punt" since they were too heavy to hold & were called "punt-guns". Cool cannon with ~50 grams of powder & 2lbs of shot. Saw a pic of a bunch of 1 & 1.5 gauges aimed at a line of brits during the Civil War... prob had a bunch of little 1/4 pound balls of shot in 'em, mixed with nails, pieces of piano wire & prob rocks in them too.

    i got a free gun!

    I'm lucky to win the 3rd place door prize.... pack of targets, can of CLP, etc. Its a MKIII, blast it with powder solvent every 1k rounds, hour later, blast it with CLP or your favorite spray lube. Take it down e/ decade or so. The 22/45 was designed to keep you in shape for your 1911 w grip angle, safety, etc., so says Ruger.

    Free Ammo

    Federal AE is decent 'range-grade' ammo. About the same as WWB. The State used to give it to us for carbine qualifications for years, until the AG made us use our Rem JHP duty-ammo for quals (CYA for liability). I never noticed any differance between the two.

    Just Purchased A Colt!!!!!!!!!

    Huge Congrats on your new Colt 1911 Combat Elite. Why settle for a clone? (our best snob phrase) LOL My Colt Defender .45acp is my ultimate carry. No grip rattles or fit problems. Got mine in 2011 so I got the 100 year Rollmark on the slide. 3 in bbl is ridiculous accurate & only 22 ozs + less than an inch thick. Perfection! Only about 3k rounds through it, (all Hornady) it is a sweet, comfortable carry.
  11. It is past time to disband the criminal agencies such as the ATF, EPA, DHS, BLM along with numerous other federal agencies. They should also be disallowed to be arrmed at any time while 'on-duty'. They can call the state they are in for discretionary armed enforcement, if needed. No badges for feds, just suits and shiny shoes for investigations. ALL Firearm laws Infringing on U.S. Citizens Immediately Negated. Obvious Impeachment Proceedings w Numerous Treason Charges. It should be enacted in a hurry, before 'The Cliven Bundy Ranch' in NV becomes the next Waco or Ruby Ridge, or worse. ALL nationally owned land, outside of D.C. needs to be returned to the states they are located in. Military Bases can function on State land. The 'Socialist U.N. Building' needs to be sold as low income housing with the Free Republic of the U.S.A. disassociating itself from the National Security Threat. Any individual over-stepping their 1st amendment rights with speech against the U.S. Constitution should be swiftly charged with Treason and Tried accordingly with severe consequences pending a guilty verdict. This would be a small start with the addressing of 'Corruption' of any elected official, Anti-American Media, ALL Illegal Persons Criminally Charged as 'Enemy Invaders', Non-Citizen Voters Prosecuted, Secure Borders, Congressional Reps subject to All Laws and such matters soon following. Corporations like GM, Chrysler, et al, returned to Public Ownership. We have a LOOONG way to go.

    Bought my first AR-15 DPMS Sportical

    For the small things like rails, single-point sling adaptors, slings, stc., etc., there is no reason to pay high dollar, while working on your carbine. I get a lot of this stuff from Amazon.com for chump change and have found most all of it to be great quality. This will leave you funds to put towards the important improvements. They sell some good basic tools and some high quality parts like the lower spring kits (wasn't optional for me over the years), vertical grip w storage, etc. A good place to see whats available, even if you buy it somewhere else. I go w name brands like MOE when possible, but I suspect they sell a lot of unbranded OEM. Light & laser mounts are well-priced quality. Decent return policy, too. Just type in AR accessories in the site's search box.
  13. http://politix.topix.com/story/11423-gun-owners-youre-winning-here-are-3-big-victories-for-open-carry-this-week Check-out the 'New' Gun Rights Map at the bottom, too.
  14. Here is an article + EASY contacts towards CC in TN. Constitutional Carry in Tennessee?http://www.examiner.com/article/constitutional-carry-possible-tennessee?cid=rss It seems clear TN needs to toss 7 Anti-American Reps in a hurry. I don't live in TN, but I still emailed every Rep listed towards getting "Constitutional Carry" in TN, Gov said he'd sign it if Y'all can get it thru the House.

    My feelings concerning child support.

    +1 Also, I've known men who have been whacked for 90%+ of their net income for child support. We had a 'cop-hating' judge in the county. Some got hit with 110% of their income, .... fell behind (of course).... judge tossed 'em in jail until it was 'up-to-date'.... which couldn't happen. There was no way to fight it & cops lost their job & the kids & ex got nothing. The standard was 25% of net income for 1st child + 10% for each additional child + all healthcare + tuition for college until 25 years old. I believe support should be 50/50 for parents with joint custody. It takes two.
  16. The NRA stated it wants to use this legislation as a "National Model" for Firearm Freedoms. The House & Senate were near unanimous. This Bill allows people to openly carry firearms almost anywhere in the state and nullifies all gun-control laws by any local governments in the state. It goes well with the new firearm legislation in GA and even Cleveland, OH. Progress for the 'Good Guys' and a massive reduction in the 'Gun-Free-Killing-Zones'. Now to get some of this simple-logic into our Military Bases to prevent a 'Ft Hood III', and other States to prevent a 'Sandy Hook II', 'Virginia Tech III'... etc.

    Meanwhile in Russia.............

    The rumors of the Russian 'Wootka' shortage & 'high-employment-rates' have been greatly exagerated.

    What do you carry

    Colt Defender ,45 or S&W Shield .40 (sold off all my 9s).

    Top 10 handguns in the U.S.

    That was the year I got my Colt Defender .45acp with the "100 years" Rollmark. Wouldn't have expected Kahr or Kimber to be on the list, rest seems about right enough.
  20. If I carry under LEOSA, I have to obey the same CCW laws all the other armed civillians do, in their respective states. When I was active LE, I 'always' had my State's 'Unrestricted CPL', just like all the other armed civillians in the State did. It was a common practice in the SO & State LE, both. Many carried 'On-Their-Badge' while off duty, while others refused to carry while 'off-duty'. Both practices had legal merit. When I retired and moved to the Heartland, I went to work for the State's HP, but obtaqined my CCL as soon as possible. Actually, it wasn't until I was near finished with my graduate degree in Criminology, when the logic of my actions truly struck me. Off duty civillian carry by LEOs can be an extremely complex subject. If I had it all to do over again, I'd have completed a Law Degree, before going into LE. Many times, I got by on the ignorance of others.

    Tell me about the Red Cross.

    I won't bash the Red Cross, but they have had way more than their share of Scandals & Exhorbitent salaries. They remind me of the "United Way", they used to have our admins pull us off our jobs to watch a video & then 'shake-us-down' (with inuendos about keeping our jobs) to sign up for paycheck deductions... then were the same Scandals & Ridiculous Salaries. The Salvation Army is one of the few 'Legitimate Charities' I donate to.... after much ongoing research, even their director makes a very modest salary. Me and the wife send the SA a good check e/year and give every "Bell Ringer" I see all the change in my pocket during the Christmas season.
  22. I have tasted 'gator at an In-Laws BBQ, it was slathered in Hot Sauce, cajun style.... meat was burnt black & covered in 'catsup-from-Hell'. Ate a few pieces and still don't know what "Gator" tastes like. I'd have to guess its no prize if they serve it like THAT. If any reptile tasted good, I'd have heard of it by now.

    AR-15 Charging Handle

    I got the Oversized for both of mine a couple years ago and love 'em. About $15. basket-type for mine. I didn't want different or just for scope, I wanted BIG. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1/186-3054212-5969768?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=ar15%20charging%20handle&sprefix=ar15+c%2Caps&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Aar15%20charging%20handle
  24. Got two .357 mag 5 shot J-frames. One has a shrouded hammer & weighs 13 oz. How not to love the idea of dropping an attacker, cocking for single action, without even taking the beast out of your jacket pocket? I tried the pocket shot ONCE. Weren't like the movies with a clean little hole.... first shot (.357snubbie) blew pocket off & burned my hand (sand-blasted the fuzz off of it). Jacket was no loss, but hand stayed pink & tingly for hours. Hit a paper plate tacked to a tree at ~8ft away, but I was well practiced in hip shooting at the time. Good & valuable research, but I made the mistake of going in the house & showing my wife.... she laughed for two hours straight, tears and all. Dayum
  25. It is interesting no one has brought up the "Possee Commitatus Act of 1878". Over-simplified, it was brought about by Southern lawmakers in 1878 whom had experienced a fifteen year military occupation by the US Army in post-Civil War law enforcement. They understood the heel of a jackboot. Basically, this act bans the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines from participating in arrests, searches, seizure of evidence and other police-type activity on U.S. soil. The Coast Guard and National Guard troops under the control of state governors are excluded from the act. Regarding any mass gun-seizure attempts, the U.S. citizenry is now so well armed, any such attempt would quickly weaken and destroy the U.S.A. permanently. Then, the helpless survivors would have to deal with Russia, China, nukes, etc. Such is the Wisdom of the 2A with the "Shall not be infringed" declaration written into it. (yet, we have nearly 22,350 pseudo-laws infringing upon it.) The 2nd A is beyond the reach of the USSC as it is in the realm of "Our Creator".... or in another term "Natural Law" beyond human reach. Also, according to "Possee Commitatus", the Sheriff of any County is the leader of the 'Local Militia' with the ultimate authority to call any male citizen having attained the age of 15 years, into armed service. It takes many textbooks to fully understand this "Act" as many have twisted it, called it repealled, etc. The truth is, it stands to date as does the 2A (despite stupid arguments by politicians and the ignorant). (sorry for the rant, but I did my Master's Thesis on this) [Pah'-see Kom-eh-tah'-tes] Get a text on this act, it is endless more info and facinating reading regarding our actual rights, the real preservation of our way of life, and an indictment of the false laws we live under.
