    Zimmerman case Good article--I have never heard that side of the story. Gives one a much better understanding of what could be Zimmerman's point of view...or frame of mind. Nevertheless, I believe that Zimmerman was emboldened by having a weapon, and that boldness led to him exiting his...

    What bullet do you use ?

    Cor-Bon DPX +1 Cor-Bon DPX 115gr I like research and science. This article specifically mentions Glaser Safety Slugs (NOT in a good way) and the Cor-Bon DPX (in a good way, for most of the calibers) Link Removed Another good read is this one on the Chuck Hawks site: Ammunition For The...

    Lost man shoots violent home intruder.

    Man in parked car shoots intruder I was confused by the "LOST man" part of the title ... I still am. Anyway, if I read this article correctly, the home-owner had to run to his vehicle, retrieve the weapon, and shoot the advancing attacker from a seated position within the vehicle, RIGHT...

    Movie theater vs. a theatre

    theaters in MI as pistol free zones I usually refer to the statute on questions of this nature, and when in doubt I will look to see if MCRGO (Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners) has any clarification on the "legalese." I found this in the FAQ/Ask the Lawyer section on the MCRGO...

    Wound Cavities, Penetration, Bullet Yaw

    I too was just reading the info on Link Removed. It is quite revealing, and has made me seriously consider adding a .45 to my gun collection (which is currently comprised of only 9mm's).
