  1. Looking for a light bearing holster

    Can anyone recommend a kydex OWB holster that would work for an HK P2000 with a Surefire X300? I'd like to order one from Raven Concealment, but it seems that they aren't taking any new orders right now. So is there anyone out there that is making something comparable to a Raven, but is...
  2. One of my coworkers felt the BERN

    So each quarter we have in-service/refresher type training on various things such as arrest/handcuffing techniques, defensive tactics, edged weapons defense, and so forth. The training is usually at least somewhat physically demanding and you get a pretty good workout. Monday was my training...
  3. Three Forms of ID

    If a private citizen approaches a LEO and demands to see "your three forms of law enforcement ID, as required by law and that you must show me upon request", does anyone know what that person might even remotely be talking about? I kinda wish SemiAutoSam wasn't banned right now. I feel...
  4. Until Valhalla, Brothers

    A good friend and fellow red leg just posted this on Facebook and I felt like sharing. Gun 1, Charlie 1/11 fired a salute to the Marines and Sailor that died in Chattanooga. [halfmast]
  5. Question about parties to an NFA trust

    I've been considering setting up a trust for NFA purposes ever since I moved out from behind the iron curtain of MA. I'm getting ready to pull the trigger, but what I'm trying to figure out is who people choose to fill the various rolls of the trust when they don't have a lot of family to pick...
  6. AK purchase opinions

    I'm in the market for an AK, and I think I've got it narrowed down to this Polish model from Atlantic Firearms, or the Arsenal SLR-107, also from Atlantic Firearms. Due to the thread size and unconventional buttstock, I don't think I'd be able to dress the Arsenal in wood and attach a standard...
  7. If you're looking for an LE job in MA, just move away.

    While I was a Massachusetts resident I never received any offers from any departments. Since I moved to Arizona not quite two years ago I've received letters from Chicopee PD, Springfield PD, Bourne PD, and just today from the MTBA Police. I took the exam once, six years ago. Apparently the...
  8. Question for NRA instructors about the "W" word

    This post reminded me of the guidance for NRA instructors to refrain from referring to firearms as "weapons". The value/logic of that practice has already been debated at length several times on this forum, and I'm sure this thread will devolve into another such debate rather quickly. Before...
  9. Paper FA-10 still in use?

    Are paper FA-10's still accepted for FTF transfers? I mean the actual carbon copy forms, not the .pdf printouts. I found a blank one while going through some old files.
  10. Don't rob retirees in Arizona

    Attempted robbery ends with victim shooting suspect I just love how the media here understands that the criminals aren't the victims, even if they get themselves shot. EDIT: Read the comments, too. They'll make you smile.
  11. UPDATE No more Tuition Assistance for the USMC or Army

    Marines halt new enrollments in tuition assistance programs; other services could follow - Stripes - Independent U.S. military news from Iraq, Afghanistan and bases worldwide God forbid we cut entitlements in any way. Nope, better to screw Marines out of one of the best programs out there...
  12. Free America

    To all my friends still stuck behind the iron curtain, I just spotted this yesterday and figured I'd share it here. I'm sure many of you haven't seen something like this in awhile, or perhaps ever, but this is what Free America looks like. Buy a gun, it's literally for the children [grin]
  13. Sure, repeal DADT. What's the worst that could happen?

    The whole military has gone gay now. Props for the choreography. The field 'stashes, on the other hand, are God awful.
  14. I'm in the Twilight Zone, and it's AWESOME

    I'm currently in Arizona for work. Due to jet lag, I woke up at 3am, so I've just been flipping through channels passing time. I was just watching the local news and browsing NES when I heard the words "auction" and "shotgun". I started paying attention and saw the anchor with some old ladies...
  15. FOPA and Indian reservations

    So I recently got a job that will be taking my wife and I out of the beautiful state of Massachusetts. We'll be relocating to Yuma, AZ, and will be driving our personal vehicles. I've already read up on FOPA as well as reviewed the possession and transport laws for each state we'll be driving...
  16. Brian Enos is awesome

    Today I ordered the parts to setup my 550B for .38 and .45 (currently just setup for 9mm). However, I did not order a conversion kit for .45 because I got one used locally for short money. Just now, Brian personally called me because he noticed that I had ordered the conversion kit for .38 but...
  17. S&W magazine question

    Posting this question for a friend of mine. He's got a Sigma (SW9VE) and was wondering if magazines for a 5906 would fit. I have no clue about the different generations of S&W pistols and magazine compatibility, so I'm passing this question on to the masses. Thanks!

  19. Power Supply Advice

    So now that I've passed my General exam I figure it's about time to grow up and move beyond the HT that I've been using for the past year. First on my shopping list is a power supply. I'm looking at the MFJ-4245MV because it's got a nice amp rating and it's pretty cheap. That being said, I've...
  20. Taking the CW plunge

    I've been wanting to learn code ever since I was young and had some toy walkie talkies with the little beep button on them. Yesterday I decided there's no better time than the present, so I found a free course put together by K7QO and started working with it yesterday evening. So far I'm...
