Nice. I used to have 4 or 5 hard chromed slides on polymer guns. They always look nice.

Had a P99, P99c, USPc9, SW99 and a 1 or 2 others I forget....

Yes, I have no plans to open carry my SCAR. I didn't know this local event was happening, but I would not have attended anyway

General Gun Discussion / My son is signed up for shooting lessons
« on: August 24, 2014, 10:39:54 AM »
Yesterday I signed my 7 year old son up for a local airgun program. My wife is pretty antigun, and won't let him shoot a real gun yet. And honestly - I don't think he's quite ready for that anyway.

Well, there is a local program taught by NRA certified instructors for kids and teens. They had an open house yesterday - and my son was getting bored with all the talking about the program for the parents. Finally - kids in the program already did some demonstrating.

Since I signed my son up when we first got there, they let him join the line and watch. The actual class doesn't start for 2 weeks, and they will start with safety related stuff, and then go step by step on how to shoot. But, one of the instructors let me son take a few shows with a BB gun, just to try it. He didn't really tell him too much on how to aim or anything.

My son took maybe 10-12 shots. But in the end when he got his target, he was so excited to see he hit it 2x... Once in the 5 ring and once in the 7 ring (right on the line). He now has the target hanging on his wall at home :p

He wasn't too excited to shoot with wooden stock guns that look like "cowboy guns" to him. But after he shot the gun, he was so happy - he stated "it doesn't matter what the gun looks like - I just like to shoot."

Anyway - he should have fun. And in a year or so, maybe we can try my M&P 15-22 carbine that I got with him in mind. With the adjustable stock, I think it will work well for him when he gets older.

Sundays... When I get to hear the relaxing sounds of my wife yelling at my son because he won't practice his piano because he does so poorly at his weekly lessons...  :facepalm:

Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke: Eric Holder Needs to Apologize to Cops

Attorney general Eric Holder and Missouri Democratic leaders need to apologize to the law-enforcement community for impugning officers’ motives in light of the unrest in Ferguson, Mo., according to one prominent county sheriff.

Milwaukee County sheriff David Clarke, who gained notoriety last year for encouraging gun ownership within his Wisconsin community, said Holder, Governor Jay Nixon, and Senator Claire McCaskill made the situation in Ferguson worse with their “irresponsible, inflammatory” comments about the city’s police force and its supposed problem with race relations.

Open carry advocates shooting for change in laws

With a black-powder revolver at his side and an Open Carry Texas flag flying nearby, Michael Gilden waved at passing cars in Downtown Bryan on Saturday afternoon.

Many honked their approval and others stopped by to ask questions. Two College Station police officers dropped off water bottles for the group, followed by two sheriff's deputies who came by to express their support.

She Accused Her Husband of Downloading Child Porn. Now She’s the One with a Felony Conviction.

“She download[ed] in excess of 40 images of different acts of child pornography to the family computer, took it to the state police and said, ‘My husband downloaded all this porn,’” District Attorney Patrick Dougherty said.

Investigators found that the images Woods claimed her husband sought out were date-stamped between Aug. 11 and 14, 2013, which meant they were downloaded after Woods’ husband had been forced out of the house by a protection-from-abuse order.

Powell's husband sped up in front of Fry and as the car was still moving, his wife jumped out.

Hilarity then ensued.

"I got into a football stance and said, 'You're going to stay here,' " Powell said. "He stiff-armed me and I just wrapped him up and threw him on the ground."

Lovely email I got:

ce petit bijoux me laisse ręveur car impossible a avoir en France

9mm - Like New Sig Sauer Nickel Finish 224! Gun comes with factory night sights and two magazines! (1 still in packaging)

That really helps me with my sale :p

Most guns I have sold had nothing to do with buyers remorse - I just wanted something else more after I had it a while. I sell them to have the $ to buy the next thing I wanted

As a teenager, I've seen many 2x, and a few 3x before.

Lethal Weapon 2, I think I saw 3x. Saw Hard to Kill 3x.

As a kid, Star Wars got re-released several times. Before VHS days for the Star Wars series. I saw it several times. I believe I saw A New Hope 2x when they re-released it as the Special Edition in the 1990s. Great to see it on a big screen again.

I have had this a few times. I have rented many guns that have prompted me to buy. And some that I was so glad to be able to rent - and it saved me $.

But, there have been a few times that I instantly regretted my purchase

The 1 theater we had had gone up to $5.75 or so - then a second theater opened up a few years ago. The matinee prices dropped. It's like $4.50 or so

Ok, took my son again. He's seen it 4x now... 6 for me.....

Get a grip man, you've spent around $70 so far seeing it repeatedly and will then buy it for around $20 when released to DVD/BR.
Patience grasshopper, just wait for the DVD/BR.

ps. Now I understand better how you buy and sell

I don't know what the movies cost for you in Houston, but I've spent no where near that amount. Less than $5 for myself each time. $30 tops for myself.... And, I like seeing it on the big screen...

Kids movie is somewhere like $1 less.

Ok, took my son again. He's seen it 4x now... 6 for me.....

I've owned a P30L, a PPQ and a Shield.

I only have the Shield now. It's my favorite of the 3 easily. I've had my Shield almost 2.5 years and have 2500 rounds thru it. I love that gun. I carry it just about daily. My fav sub compact - hands down.

Yes, it's only 7+1 with the small mag. But so is a 1911....
