    Very Disappointed...☹️

    I think we need to rely on the judgement of the moderators in dealing with an 'instigator'. It would also help if we had a definition of the term 'instigator' as it applies to this forum. My apologies if one was posted. I read or scanned most of the posts, but may have missed it.

    In Defense of A Third Party: The Sheriffs Take

    What the Sheriff said is spot on! Getting involved in a third party defense situation is rift with potential problems and pitfalls and should only be attempted in extreme situations. The legal ramifications of getting involved can be staggering even if it was a successful intervention.

    Using a Firearm to Detain a Person

    I only watched a short portion of the video. As a retired law enforcement officer I can only say that you had better have a very good, articulable, reason for pointing a gun at someone and preventing them from leaving.

    My bad!

    Good question. It's possible that since no one noticed the sight was off center at first, was that it gradually shifted due to recoil. If that was the case, then it's possible that the dove tail was out of spec and sending it in would be the proper thing to do. :unsure:

    If I had a choice, the G20 would not be my first choice, but since it is my only choice it is what I would happily carry while in the backwoods.

    1911s – 45 ACP vs 9mm vs 10mm — Which is Best?

    I have fired all three, a lot and if it ever came down to only being able to keep one then it would be the 10mm.

    I have pretty much lost all interest in watching sports on TV, about the only thing I watch occasionally, is golf.

    The Rimfire Report: The 3 Best 22LR Pocket Concealed Carry Options

    Good article! I notice the .22 is getting a lot of attention these days. I wonder if the ammo shortage might have something to do with it.🙂

    Power on the Cheap: Best Affordable 10mm 1911 Options

    I have the G20 and I bought a 40 cal Wolf barrel for it, put on night sights, extended slide and mag releases and aftermarket trigger and is still way under the author's $1200.00 ceiling.

    Decisiveness Matters in a Deadly Force Situation

    As far as I am concerned, if you have a gun for self-defense, whether EDC or in the home, you had better be prepared to use it.

    Good, informative article! Being able to reload without looking at your gun is something every gun needs to be able to do.

    I regards to competitive .22 shooting we would always fire a few rounds to "dirty" a clean barrel before we shot for competition.

    Happy first day of fall...

    I guess I have to get out more as I wasn't aware of meteorological seasons before the OP. 😴 However, I find the meteorological seasons to be more in line with what we see here in the upper plains.

    Altitude sickness: 5-things you didn't know

    Good article! I wasn't aware of HAPE and HACE before. I lived in Colo. Springs for a long time and never experienced any problems, but now, after living in the flatlands of South Dakota for over 30 years, I'm afraid it might be different if I went back to COS today.

    Do .22 LR Pistols Make Sense for Self-Defense?

    If a .22lr is all you have, then by all means carry it. I have no qualms about carrying a pocket revolver in .22mag, which I carry quite often, but that caliber is where I, personally, draw the line. The argument that a .22lr is an inferior defensive tool because it may take several shots to...
