  1. Are both pistols brand new, out of the box stock?
  2. Check the age brackets for drowning vs. gun "violence".
  3. Been wondering that myself.
  4. Coming from the same people that weren't collecting your info and then voting to give it to UC Davis after taxing us to pay for UC Davis to study us and tie legal gun owners into criminal activities, comes the Office of Gun Violence Protection which will use the UC Davis studies as a part of it's tools to further restrict our Constitutionally protected rights. And just what in the great San Fran psychotic hell is a "more holistic approach to reducing gun violence"? https://oag.ca.gov/ogvp Preventing Gun Violence Gun violence remains a growing threat to public safety throughout the nation. On average, there are over 120 gun deaths each day and nearly 45,000 each year in the U.S. Guns are the leading cause of death among children and adolescents; with U.S. children being more likely to die from gun violence than in any other comparable country. Gun violence is not only a public safety crisis, but a public health crisis. This crisis is unacceptable. Especially when there are strategies that work to prevent it. On September 20, 2022 Attorney General Bonta established the Office of Gun Violence Prevention to advance California’s efforts to adopt a more holistic approach to reducing gun violence — and invites stakeholders from throughout California to assist in these efforts. About the Office of Gun Violence Prevention The mission of the Office of Gun Violence Prevention (OGVP) is to reduce and prevent gun violence, firearm injury, and related trauma. OGVP will support DOJ’s ongoing gun violence reduction efforts led by the Bureau of Firearms and several litigation teams — including seizure of firearms from dangerous individuals using the Armed and Prohibited Persons System, prosecution of firearms trafficking cases, and defense of California’s commonsense gun laws. Strategies to Reduce Gun Violence OGVP will examine a broad range of factors — from firearm availability to effective resources for crisis prevention — to reduce the harm caused by firearms and make Californians healthier and safer. OGVP aims to reduce gun violence by: Promoting research and data collection. Increasing awareness about effective legal and policy strategies. Collaborating with federal, state, and local partners.
  5. Perhaps these will work for you? https://www.beretta.com/en-us/gun-accessories/handguns/grips/stampede-grips-plastic-standard/
  6. Just wait for the new CZ Colts to come out.

    Tech section?

    Look up disc brake conversions for a 67 Camaro on YouTube. There's a lot. Some are good. Some are really good. There's a couple that will adversely affect your Ackerman angle. There's at least one I know of that will break your upper ball joint. There's quite a few that don't even talk about residual pressure check valves, metering blocks, proportioning valves or properly sizing your master cylinder to your new brake system. I could go on.... But let's say you belong to one of the best communities on the webby world, you don't have to go hunting for Pettifogger's open top tuning instructions in the FAQ section, or a reference to Marauder's shooting iron pages (which are completely awesome.), or searching endlessly for some obscure post from Garrison Joe about fitting extractors. And yeah, even pointing out some good YouTube videos.... I'm not saying it could or should be done, I was just wondering out loud. You'll have to excuse me now, I have to get back to a Mopar forum I hang out on and point a new kid to a how-to I posted 12 years ago about double flaring stainless brake lines.

    Tech section?

    I was doing a few things to my back up rifle and my brain started squirming a bit wondering why there isn't a "tech" section. Ya know, sort of a one stop place to look up polishing sears, refinishing stocks, quick tuning, cylinder/bolt timing and whatnot. I've done the car forum thing for many moons and most have something like that. Just curious is all.
  9. At this point, my bigger problem is how to sneak a food bowl into the house without my 110 lbs. German Shepherd jumping me thinking it's hers.
  10. Thanks. I meant to say wad, but was going over a bunch of info on Winchester vs. Remington hulls and I guess my brain just locked up. And now I'm shopping dog bowls.
  11. I actually like War Wagon, but if you name it that, you'll almost have to paint it gray and add lines of rivets at the seams.
  12. Just to be clear, We're NOT calling it a "Cagney and Lacey" hold, right?
  13. Stupid Otto Korrect. I'm getting tired of his shirt.
  14. I was kinda wondering the context of your question. I shoot DD and had done a fair bit of dry fire practice at home during the lockdown. I also practiced my draw and reholstering and developed the habit of decoding which earned me my first ever SDQ. Gotta watch what you practice.
  15. Pull trigger, go click, move on. Decock or ride the hammer down, go to SDQ heaven. I'm not really understanding your question.
  16. Give it an Apache name. Nah-Tah-Tay. It's also the answer to how or when you load it in your truck.
  17. https://crpa.org/news/blogs/two-big-victories-in-sacramento/ In the wee hours last night, as the two-year legislative session was coming to a close in Sacramento, CRPA’s legislative team helped bring home two critical victories. SB 918, a bill that would have made it virtually impossible to carry a gun outside your home, and AB 1227, a bill to add 10-11% taxes to all new gun purchases, were defeated. Working with a coalition of sheriffs and other Second Amendment groups and facing an aggressive push from Gov. Newsom, Attorney General Bonta, and top legislative Democrats, CRPA rallied pro-2A voices to reach out to four key legislators who proved to be crucial votes. CRPA members were vital to this effort, generating calls (and even office visits) to these lawmakers to voice their opposition. The collective push held the bills just a handful of votes short of passage. “California now joins the other 42 states that already issues these licenses freely to law abiding citizens and have experienced a decrease in violent crime as a result of the deterrent effect on criminals,” noted CRPA President & General Counsel Chuck Michel. “CRPA is notifying local jurisdictions of their constitutional obligations to process applications quickly. We anticipate some stonewalling and game playing from certain localities hostile to gun ownership. We will see those hold outs in court very soon.” The victory provides an extra measure of relief since both laws would have gone into effect immediately as “urgency” statutes, meaning higher taxes and an absurd patchwork of CCW restrictions across the state that would have burdened lawful gun owners while doing nothing to reduce crime. That would have meant taxes as high as 40% on gun purchases in some jurisdictions! These victories are certainly cause for celebration. SB 918 and AB 1227 were central elements of the Democratic agenda to wipe out “gun culture”, while shamelessly claiming they are reducing crime. One more time: CRIMINALS DON’T FOLLOW THE LAW! While we are thrilled to report these wins, we know that nothing is ever truly “dead” in Sacramento, and legislators have already pledged to bring SB 918 back in the new year. AB 1227 has already been introduced and defeated several times, so there’s no reason to think it won’t be back as well.
  18. Thanks. It's not mine, but I've used it in the past and it works.
  19. If you use the "fuzzy" side of a velcro strip behind the sweatband, it will take up the space and still circulate air. Find the stuff with the sticky backside to keep it in place.
  20. Seems more and more like a authoritarian third world country. Don't ya think?
  21. I sure am glad you clarified who'd be wearing the skirt.
