Correct use of the English language

Welcome to the forum. Just a tip, when posting on the forum please capitalize the first letter of the first word of every sentence of your post. In addition to making the post alot easier to read, it is the correct use of the writen English language.

Dear G50AE:

I'm not sure if you are trying to be helpful or just trying to make everyone else feel like an idiot, but it appears that you spend a lot of time correcting others in this forum.

You might want to know that "alot" is not a word in the English language--"a lot" and "allot" do exist, however. Please see Google Answers: alot vs. a lot and A lot or allot?.

Does it help ANYONE for me to correct your English? No. Does pointing out that "alot" isn't a word make your post any clearer to others? NO!

Please, just stick to helping folks with information on CARRYING GUNS. When someone types "clip" instead of "magazine" when referring to a handgun, we ALL know what she means. When someone types "u" instead of "you," we ALL know what they mean. When you type "alot" instead of "a lot," we ALL know what you mean!

On a positive note, it is now obvious that you aren't sexist--you seem willing to correct just about anyone.....

Hey, welcome. Here in the great state of NV you can carry locked, loaded, and ready. Just remember down there in the Kali annex known as Vegas you need to register your handgun. Up here in north eastern nevada, having the permit is enough.

I tried pointing out the word "a lot" was two words as well. Guess that was not in G50AE's dictionary.
Oh well. Good post!!!

Hello byrdogsports69,
Whew, thats a long ID. :) Looks like you have some good answers to your QUESTIONS. The local firing ranges and gun stores usually have really good & accurate information. Also, go on line and enter laws for citizens carrying a firearm in your area. The written law is always going to be accurate over all information.
Welcome & have a blast on this forum. There is a lot of really good info. Don't get hung up on all of the very technical information provided. Look for info you can understand. Eventually you will understand most of the technical stuff.

Carrying it unloaded is, well, not helpful to you. It does however, benefit your assailant... Unless you have been formally trained in the Israeli draw, carrying condition 1 is the best method.

It depends of the type of firearm you plan to carry.

Double action revolvers are easy in condition 1. Most have no manual safety that needs to be toggled to allow fire. Point and shoot. A misfire condition is simple to remedy, just pull the trigger again. One of the 5 or 6 or 7 will fire...

Single action 1911 style autos have options. Condition 1 is cocked and locked with the hammer cocked ready to drop on a loaded chamber. The manual safety is engaged to block trigger action. Or you can carry with one in the chamber and the hammer down. You will have to cock it to get it to fire and in a threat situation it requires thought and takes time.

Double/single action autos you can have one in the chamber and the hammer down. You can leave the manual safety inactive or have it engaged. The long stiff double action trigger pull will act as a safety and allow you to carry chamber loaded without having the hammer cocked and be able to just draw point and shoot.

The striker fired double actions (Smith and Wesson M&P, Glock, XD etc..) are the ones that you the user have to trust the manufacturer. They are designed to be carried with the chamber loaded and be ready to fire with little user action. Simply pull the trigger. They are engineered with heavy trigger pulls and safeties built in the triggers that prevent fire unless the trigger is pulled intentionally. They also have a striker block that prevents the pin from protruding from the breech face if the sear were to break by accident such as by dropping.

Choose the one that works best for your level of confidence and ability. If you feel as if you need training and confidence seek it... No child born to woman is born knowing, we are all born learning...

Peace...
 
I like 6shootercarry's response. It covers just about all situations I can think of for physical condition of the gun.
The only other options are concealed or open carry, but the physical situation of the gun is important regardless.

Personally I carry guns that are drop-safe and offer single and double action and manual safety options.
I change the physical condition for the situation I am in and set safety off, double action trigger when I am on high alert and have to walk into a confrontation.

That being said, I have never encountered a situation where I had to draw down on someone. I was prepared, and I'm sure nobody ever knew I was armed. That is what I think is the ideal situation. Do not escalate the problem. Do not hesitate to protect yourself.

I'm not completly familur with nevadas weapon laws, but did you have to take a class to get your permit ? if so you could ask your instuctor, or inquier at your local sherriffs office

A fine example of the Tennessee public education system at work. Oh wait..... that was intenshinull. Nevermind. :laugh:

In Nevada you can open carry your handgun locked and loaded with no permit required. Clark County requires RESIDENTS to register their guns.

OK exactly what was that supposed to mean :angry:

Well... I had assumed that this:

Was posted mocking the OP's lack of capitalization and spelling skills. So this:

A fine example of the Tennessee public education system at work. Oh wait..... that was intenshinull. Nevermind

was a post poking fun at your poking fun of the OP's post.

Now, if this:

I'm not completly familur with nevadas weapon laws, but did you have to take a class to get your permit ? if so you could ask your instuctor, or inquier at your local sherriffs office

is truly how you do write in everyday life, then I am sorry to have offended you.
 
WTF??? Is this an online grammar class?
Get over yourselves...

To the OP: Reading and understanding the laws in your state can be a daunting task, but being aware of what is allowed and legal and what is not permissible is important.

As far as how to carry, That depends on your level of comfort with the firearm and your ability to use it. It's a tool not a magic talisman or shield against the evil that man and women do. Learn how and when to use it.

Seek answers... Leave the spelling to the experts...
 
i am trying to help the person post in such a way to make their posts more readable as you can see typing without reguards to capitalization makes the posting alot harder to follow so does not using punctuation or typing in all caps i could care less if someone uses capital when they should use capitol or incorrectly uses the verbs lie and lay or sit and set what i was trying to help the op with was readability


You just do't get it. You are not the administrator of this web forum, this IS NOT AN ENGLISH CLASS of which you would have already failed. Despite attempts from several other people you continue to incorrectly spell the word ""a lot".
If you don't like how someone writes, types, grammar or what ever you have the CHOICE to not read the post. However, you do not hav the right to continiously cut down other people just because their English abilities, capilization or puncutiation does not suite you. You need to check your own English skills as they are NOT what you THINK THE ARE.
I am sad for you G550AE. You must be a very lonely person who has nothing better to do than make a POOR attempt to be an English teacher, cut others down and TOOT YOUR OWN HORN.
I personally challenge this forum to boycott contact with G50AE since their objective is to correct one's English rather than be a part of this forum as it was intended to be.

Would suggest that you all consult the dictionary but it has been my experience that it contains a lot of misspelled words.
 
I can vouch that NavyLT is not me under another name even though AFAIK we have never met. Here is a question for you though, are you the same poster as Icemanmnpls? You seem to have an agenda yourself, as this is at least the second thread you have railroaded in an effort to get under my skin.

If you are not Icemanmnpls, I apologize. Maybe you should simply not post on threads that I post on. No need to get yourself so worked up.
