    As a 1911 addict - Glock lovers please help me understand

    Hey everyone. I think you all know I am a very devoted 1911 fan. I own many and even have my YouTube channel about them (and my life and other guns). I have been carrying for about 20 years now and have always carried either a 1911, sig or other external hammer gun. I have never liked the look...

    Street's of New York - gun busters, who wants to write a letter?

    OK, so I was at my favorite local gun store yesterday at their brand new second location. I also saw next door to them they had a Streets of New York Pizza place. I used to eat at SONY pizza all the time and love their food. Once I was done shopping (window) I told them I was going next door...

    Price of Ammo

    Ok, strange question, but why not. I'm feeling stupid today. I have always bought my ammo at my range when I go, box by box, each time I go. I have recently thought this might be the dumb way to go. I normally pay $20.00 per box of 50. I carry a 1911 in .45. I also recently acquired a .38...

    Ok, so here's my dirty little secret/confession. I'm NOT a member of the NRA, I have dumb reasons, I was not a member years ago because my crazy former friend said if the anit's get their way, and pass canadian like gun laws, the NRA members would be the first to lose their gun's. I know now...

    Spotting people CCW? How often do you see it? What are the give-aways?

    I live in Phoenix. I wear shirts untucked, I wear a t-shirt. I wear the t-shirt even in 110 weather because I carry IWB at 8 o'clock. When I see others wearing two shirts, I see that as a probably give-away they are CCW. It's simply too hot to wear two shirts normally. IF they are wearing a...

    New YouTuber. Who has seen him?

    I ran across this new YouTuber the other day and have now seen all his video's. He has been posting on YouTube for about 2 months now I guess and he is all about the gun's (and cars, and knives, and other expensive things). He is a bit over-the-top, but I generally like him. I wondered if he...

    I went to my monthly lunch with a friend at a restaurant we to to every month. Today there was a big picture of a 1911 and a circle and slash through it with bold letters "NO FIREARMS ALLOWED". I told my friend (who also carries) I guess we find a new hang out. Before we did we asked for a...

    Stopping power / cal. ??'s

    Ok, we've all heard the old wives tales about caliber. How a .22 won't kill someone who is heavy or stoned. How a 357 will go through the person, wall and tree behind it, etc. I have seen show's and documentaries about this and know when shooting through a fridge, sofa, counter, or other...

    What would you say to a restaurant with a "No Gun's" sign?

    A favorite restaurant I go to once a week, maybe every other week just put up a sign by their door "No Gun's Allowed". This disappoints me in many areas but I am asking, how would you handle it? I thought of writing the owner a letter, including things like "how do you plan to protect me and my...
