  1. MSP Colonel's Son in Hot Water - Drunk with Guns

    His actions did not have any impact public safety. As I mentioned previously, but you apparently didn't read it, locking up your guns in a case while transporting or storing them does nothing to reduce the chances of them being stolen. A thief would just steal the case and then open it later...
  2. MSP Colonel's Son in Hot Water - Drunk with Guns

    Most cars don’t have ignition switches that you put keys into anymore.
  3. MSP Colonel's Son in Hot Water - Drunk with Guns

    How about we punish criminals who steal from people, rather than their victims? Furthermore, even if the guns had been stored in compliance with MA law (in a locked case), that wouldn’t have prevented someone from stealing the cases and breaking into those cases at their leisure. MA firearms...
  4. MSP Colonel's Son in Hot Water - Drunk with Guns

    A supervisor at the barracks. Plus their cruisers are now tracked by GPS. It's not like a patrolman in Wayland who goes to the station, picks up his cruiser, and is in his territory 5 minutes (or less) later. A trooper may be patrolling an hour away from his barracks. Also, take-home...
  5. MSP Colonel's Son in Hot Water - Drunk with Guns

    State Police troopers typically have their own cruiser that they take home after their shift. Many of them patrol large districts so it doesn't make sense for them to go back to the barracks at the end of their shift and leave the cruiser there. They often don't go to the barracks at the start...
  6. Alleged shooter at elementary school in Uvalde, Texas

    Nothing alleged about it. A [email protected]#$!head killed 3 adults and a bunch of kids.
  7. MSP Colonel's Son in Hot Water - Drunk with Guns

    So no DUI charge.
  8. MSP Colonel's Son in Hot Water - Drunk with Guns

    Consider storage laws in a different light. My wife and I have no kids. No nieces and nephews nearby. No friends with small kids. We keep our doors locked. We are both licensed. Suppose one day I was working on a gun, maybe mounting a red dot, and had the safe door open. A sudden call of...
  9. MSP Colonel's Son in Hot Water - Drunk with Guns

    Why should it be? Probably 45+ states have no firearm storage laws. Florida's storage law is something alone the lines that if a child gets access to a firearm without breaking into your home AND something bad happens, then you face a criminal penalty. But the mere fact that you didn't store...
  10. After messing with the trigger, load just a single round

    I’m not going to blame the trigger company. I installed this in a very old gen 2.5 Glock 34 that has had many thousands of rounds through it. I did not perform a proper safety check after installing the trigger, so that is my fault. Tolerance stacking is a thing. I emailed the company yesterday...
  11. After messing with the trigger, load just a single round

    Load one. If it is all good, then load two. If it is all good, repeat, then load 5. I would have seen this with one round, as the striker was falling when I released the trigger after the slide cycled.
  12. After messing with the trigger, load just a single round

    Also, tonight I’m going to open up my Glock book and do a full safety test (which I should have done after I installed the trigger). Tomorrow when I test with live fire I will be just a few feet from the berm.
  13. After messing with the trigger, load just a single round

    I knew this, but I neglected it and it could have gotten ugly. I put a drop-in match trigger in a semi-auto pistol. When I got to the range, I loaded up 5 rounds in a magazine. It appeared to be doubling. That was more exciting than I wished. Upon further experimentation very close to the...
  14. Pistol Access Lockbox

    One alternative that might be wiser would be to simply leave out an open lock box rather than a trigger lock.
  15. MSP Colonel's Son in Hot Water - Drunk with Guns

    In free states, a lot of people have “truck guns”. That is, they leave a rifle and ammo in their vehicle at all times, even if they are headed out to a bar for a few. I wouldn’t do that because guns can get stolen (and I don’t drink), but I don’t see why you are having kittens about someone...
  16. Pistol Access Lockbox

    I’ve attended a couple presentations by MA defense attorneys. Based on what they said, many of their defendants have run their mouths about much more serious issues to cops, resulting in felony convictions.
  17. Harvard Sportsmen's Club

    Lax atmosphere is one thing, but morons damaging the steel every week is unsustainable. Some miscreants need to be identified and tossed, pour encourager les autres.
  18. Harvard Sportsmen's Club

    I was previously an executive or board member at a different club. We had a few disciplinary issues during my tenure. When we could identify the miscreant, we brought them and listened to what they had to say for themselves. Then we discussed it between ourselves. We then decided whether or...
  19. MSP Colonel's Son in Hot Water - Drunk with Guns

    Was this fellow "in the middle of nowhere"? Were there empties in the area that showed he might have parked right there and drank right there?
