  1. We are talking about the whole helmet. Joe got the model number right. It is a T14. But what is it?
  2. I said Not the lady. But yeah, that’s her. She did not design the helmet. She used one though. The question remains.
  3. Not the lady, the unusual helmet she has on. Prize to the winner.
  4. It has been my experience that mechanical failures in quality revolvers are rare. When they happen however it is generally due to breakage or failure of an internal part, rendering the gun useless at that point. Most semi malfunctions are either operator or ammo caused but can be corrected immediately. But the odds are greatly in the revolver's favor as far as malfunctions go. Simply said: a revolver probably won't malfunction, even with an untrained shooter, A A semi might malfunction, even with a trained shooter. With an untrained shooter it probably will.
  5. Nothing funnier with hi-jinks involving firearms ay? Wink wink. Nudge nudge. Why, that's plumb Hilarious! NOT!
  6. You pay for the name like a Colt. I’ve had some Kimber I liked and some I didn’t. Personally I think they are overpriced. Glad you got a good deal on one.
  7. I would agree that for 80-90% of people the DA revolver is the best choice. Not necessarily for reliability. A quality semi will be extremely reliable also, but the vast majority of ccw holders do not practice defensive shooting enough to be fully competent with a semi. It takes as you say, a Lot of practice in order to be sufficiently competent to carry a semi in harms way, because of the chance, however small, of a malfunction (either gun or operator caused) that can put you at risk of dying real quickly. Advantages of a semi in my opinion are lighter trigger pull which increases accuracy, more rounds, faster reload, balance and ergonomics. But there is always that specter of a malfunction looming in the shadows. Significant professional training, intimate familiarity with the weapon, and constant practice in high stress defensive shooting situations are the most important elements to consider if you are going to carry a semi auto. If you cannot devote the time necessary to achieve a high level of competence you should choose a revolver. This is not to say you should train less with your revolver, but you will not have the additional mental burden of memorizing immediate action procedures. Life is full of choices. This is one of the most important ones.
  8. Somebody fired a couple of rounds in Aurora at a Jeep that decided to drive up the Interstate that the protesters were blocking. They got out of the way. But one of them was armed. Two or three protestors were wounded.
  9. Yeah I’m a no good commie socials left wing wimp. I send my pension check to Let’s Destroy America dot com. Y’all watch what you want and I’ll do the same. Anything else?
  10. W played Little League in Midland TX.
  11. I wasn’t aware that anyone here liked beer.
  12. Beer! A warm afternoon. Chores done. Colorado bazeball and Colorado beer. Color me a happy man.
  13. Alien Gear makes very comfortable IWB holsters. A neoprene pad cushions the holster against the body.
  14. Gronkowski is polish for Big and Always Goofy.
  15. If it’s all you have, that’s a different story.
  16. You were asking A: If anybody has carried a single action and B. What has worked ( I assume you mean what brand of gun and/or holster) As you can see, the use of a SA for defense is rare and the reasons have been pretty well articulated. This question is frequently asked by new CAS shooters who have little experience with firearms or tactics. I occasionally carry one unconcealed on my 40 a few spread but as a former police instructor I would never consider it as a concealed defensive weapon. It would put me at a disadvantage in a confrontation.
  17. One of the best responses to the age old question I’ve seen.

  19. They may have purchased the boat locally. Do you mean the boat has FL registration numbers or the trailer has FL tags? You must register your vehicle if you move to Florida within 90 days.
