Re: Argument for AR for home defense

If you hurt or kill any bystander in your defense you will go to jail for a very long time.

Curious about this, I did some cursory interweb searches. I don't think it is true at all you would go to jail for a very

Re: Argument for AR for home defense

Bill, the safety rules at TCGC are extraordinary strict. The shooter was at an outside bay, the 600 yd range I believe. He accidentally fired over the range baffels and well over the berm toward the north into the town. I believe he was also using [more]

Re: Argument for AR for home defense

Re: Argument for AR for home defense

I'm actually somewhat astonished that someone would consider an AR-15 as a home defense weapon. Looking up 556 velocity on the "Chit Through a Goose" scale it clocks in at about 3,100 feet per second. The fact that you can see your [more]

Hey Slick, welcome to the board!!

Re: Four Rules vs. NRA rules

I am not an NRA member, nor am I a follower of their organization, so I did not know they had a different set of rules than that of Colonel Cooper's.

Re: Lisa Benson

I am fairly certain dying quickly of a gunshot wound would be vastly preferable to slowly dying of a disease...

But, a bit messy and quite possibly devastating for the family. And, add to the fact that the gun used would likely be [more]

Re: The manual safety debate

Of course now that makes me realize that some handguns I've thought I'd like to own have now been removed from my wishlist because they're SA only and/or have an external safety.
