    Hornady’s Handgun Hunter Ammo

    For deer hunting, Alabama seems to stipulate "muzzle loaders or black powder handguns 0.40 caliber or larger" and in another line "centerfire handguns with expanding rounds". So it sure looks like I could technically go deer hunting with my great grandfather's .38 if I had expanding rounds in...

    NRA Board Fails to Take Corrective Action

    This entire ongoing fiasco makes me sick. The hubris and malfeasance involved are disgusting. I've been watching it unfold since Oliver North's unexpected departure, which shocked me into taking a hard look at the NRA. I supported them with annual membership dues until this year, and let it...

    Time has come….

    I let my NRA membership lapse this summer, but am continuing to support GOA, and also a few other 2A entities.

    I found a new gun oil/cleaner

    I use Ballistol as well, pretty much exclusively, after seeing Hickock 45 using it as well. If nothing else, it sure doesn't stink up my house like Hoppes did, and seems to get things pretty clean. I blow out the excess with the air compressor in places I can't reach with cleaning patches or...

    Biden Administration Bans Import of Russian Ammunition?

    Oops. Didn't know that, don't want to **** anyone off by bringing it back up, but seems to be something we would want to be discussing. I don't use steel cased ammo myself, so not sure I've ever bought any ammo from Russia, but it doesn't seem like this restriction does anything to punish...

    Biden Administration Bans Import of Russian Ammunition?

    I came here today expecting comments on this subject: biden-administration-bans-importation-of-russian-ammunition I don't buy a lot of Russian made ammo, but know it accounts for a lot of the cheaper stuff that is currently available.

    18 Year Olds Conceal and Carry

    Alabama allows 18 year olds to apply for a CCW, but Alabama permits only have reciprocity with most states if the individual is 21 or older. That said, it really depends on the 18 year old. My youngest daughter is the only one of my 3 kids to express an interest in self defense, apply for and...

    .22 lr conversion

    Agreed. Surprisingly, my LGS has a S&W AR pistol in 22LR for sale at $449 right now. Other 22's like the Ruger 10/22 and Wrangler have come down since the height of the pandemic - the 10/22 is now $222, and the Wrangler $179 - the lowest I've ever seen it advertised. So maybe things are...

    .22 lr conversion

    I've been thinking of getting something like this at some point: https://palmettostatearmory.com/cmmg-22arc-bravo-22lr-conversion-kit-22ba651.html Note that the included magazines are 25 rounds, and may not be legal in some states. I don't know if they make or sell a 10 round version of the...

    And you knew this would happen

    I don't think the fed's can do anything about this. Missouri is free to tell their state law enforcement agencies to not assist in the enforcement of anti-2A policy. They would not block the feds from trying to enforce such changes in law, but there are a limited number of FBI agents to go...

    Could You Weak-Hand Draw If You Had To?

    If pocket carrying my LCP - no. I doubt I could ever get my left hand into my right jeans pocket! ;). I think I could get my XDM out of its IWB or OWB holster however. I usually carry around 4 o'clock. The sadder part is that my weak hand really IS my weak hand, due to painful nerve damage. No...

    Your Summer Carry…do you .380?

    In summer if only wearing a T-shirt, I tend to carry my LCP in a Desantis Nemesis pocket holster in my pocket. If I am also wearing my usual untucked fishing shirt, I'll consider wearing the 9mm either OWB or IWB. It really depends on how hot and sweaty I expect to get, and weather I feel like...

    Bedtime Configuration

    I can't imagine sleeping with a gun in hand, but can understand being in that state after what you went through in wartime. I have my EDC's in a drawer in my nightstand, with the simplex lock pressed, ready for me to turn to the right and open the safe. I keep a tactical flashlight on the...

    Hellcat in Massachusetts

    I think the trick in exercising out of state carry privileges in NH for someone like me (Alabama) would be getting there! There is a band of red states on the USCCA CCW reciprocity map that would prevent me from driving into NH with a weapon in my car in all likelihood.

    The Ongoing Battle at the NRA to Get Rid of WLP

    I too chose not to renew my NRA membership, which expired this month, and am only contributing to the GOA for the moment. I still take action when I see an NRA-ILA alert relating to legislation, but I've not been happy with the NRA since the fiasco surrounding the departure of Lt. Col. Oliver...
