    More teen mob violence.

    Yes sir. I was a Marine stationed (permanent personnel on MCRD in San Diego, '78-'79). We were at Mission Beach on a Sunday afternoon and had a problem with some bikers. We held our own and didn't get banged up too badly. Marines in Camp Pendleton heard about it and came down to help out the...

    Feral packs of humans

    I'm a white guy adopted and raised by a Mexican-American family since I was 1.5. I'm the youngest and the only one who was adopted. My parents went out of their way to make me feel like I was part of the family including whoopings when needed. My parents knew who my friends were(Hispanic and...

    My Unpopular Opinion: Don’t Customize Your Gun

    I'm with you on this. As I quickly approach 65 years young, I "usually" prefer function over form. I enjoy looking at different firearms and accessories but I prefer to keep my carry tools stock for the most part. I think there are some accessories that can dramatically improve your ability to...

    Short-Mid Range .30 Glass…

    I totally agree. I've wanted to get a bolt action in 6.5 Creedmoor and mount a nice scope on it. I almost put a Henry Lever Action in 6.5 Creedmoor on layaway at a local pawn shop. When I went back to look at it again, it had been sold. I owned a few sporterized Swedish Mausers in 6.5 x 55...

    Hi Point Heaven

    My mom was "old school". We either drank water or the sweet tea she made daily. No soda, no Kool-aid, no tang, nada...:) Once you turned 11 you were allowed to have a cup of Nescafe instant coffee in the mornings...:)

    M1 Carbine Enforcer. 11 inch barrel, 30 Caliber Carbine. Very handy when driving along the Texas/Mexico Border. Great conversation piece around Veterans and firearm history fans of World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War. Conceals discreetly in a Mandolin guitar case...:) Belonged to a...

    You’ll Shoot Your Nuts Off! Five Reasons to Rethink Appendix Carry

    I appendix carry a Glock 19 Gen 5 or a S&W 638 Bodyguard. I don't have a problem with it. And carrying this way is easier on my shoulder than my old 7-9 carry(I'm a lefty.). I recently bought a 2 holster set (IWB/OWB) for my Glock 19 from Bravo Concealment located about 40 miles from my house...

    they twisted my arm

    Yes sir. Last Saturday I paid off a Ruger 556 that I put on layaway a couple of weeks earlier. The salesman knows I'm a former Marine and like military type rifles. The Ruger AR 556 has Magpul grip and hand guards. Once he put it in my hands I could not put it down. The first time I walked...

    Man dies after accidentally shooting him self

    The bottom barrel on the Bond Arms Papa Bear was very accurate. It took some practice to adjust to the upper barrel. I lived in rural Arkansas for about 14 years(live in South Texas now) and dealt with poisonous snakes almost daily. For me the S&W 638 Bodyguard with larger Hogue Grips and 38...

    A day in the life of an EDC knife.

    Nice knife. I train/teach Filipino Martial Arts and part of the training involves the use of blades like Machetes and knives. I have training blades but will sometimes put duck tape over the blade of a live blade to train, but not on a student...:) I have a few blades in different...

    Man dies after accidentally shooting him self

    I've owned a couple of Bond Arms derringers with trigger guards(along with the Bond Arms holster) and I don't think I'd ever own any other brand of Derringer. And I don't think I'd ever own one without a trigger guard. I've seen some pretty badly made derringers out there that seemed to be an...

    Leather Holster Sticking on Draw

    Others have posted some great advice. When I've had issues like this I usually look at the holster to see if I can figure out where it's hanging up and then put extra plastic wrap around that area and leave it for 24 hours or so. I had one leather holster that I used an old sock instead of a...

    How Important is Capacity?

    I grew near the Mexican border in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas(I moved back to the area a little over 2 years ago). When I was younger I spent quite a bit of time in Progreso, Matamoros, and Reynosa, Mexico. It wasn't as dangerous then as it is now in those areas. I also visited...

    Are you a fair tipper?

    I'm usually a good tipper but have been known to leave a penny if the waittress/waiter was rude. Old age has mellowed me out, so I leave more than a penny if I get bad service, but will sometimes let the manager know about it. Down here in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas I've gotten good...

    How Important is Capacity?

    I usually carry a knife and a handgun(with a spare magazine). I like the FMA (Filipino Martial Arts) principle of "Corto/Largo"(Blade for close(corto-short) range. Firearm for longer(largo-long range) when "verbal judo" did not work and I could not escape. Consequently I use a knife when some...

    Fords colorful new Raptor.

    Yes sir. It happens down here near the Mexican border in South Texas. A $3000 car with $10,000 or more worth of accessories. For a time the favorite mod vehicle was a Chevrolet pickup truck with $4000 tires and rims and an interior custom made and installed in Mexico. They used to call those...

    Has Heckler & Koch gone woke?

    When I moved from the Rio Grande Valley of Texas up to the Dallas area I got myself in trouble because I spoke Spanish to a guy I thought was Hispanic. He was of American Indian descent and felt insulted. He corrected me and I apologized.

    My Unpopular Opinion: Don’t Customize Your Gun

    Good article. I think nowadays you can buy a firearm with the modifications that you want. I have a Glock 19 Gen 5 with night sites and I don't plan on doing any other modifications to it. Back in my motorcycle riding days some guys would spend hours modifying their motorcycles or adding...

    My Unpopular Opinion: Don’t Customize Your Gun

    We used to modify our banana seat bikes with a clothespin and piece of cardboard by the back wheel to get a "harley" sound. Sometimes we'd use a balloon instead of cardboard but you had to be ready for the balloon to pop...:)
