Re: Child ID bracelets?

When my kids were small, I remember there was a company that made temporary tattoo IDs for children. Sharpies. You need Sharpies. Discovered this when I took my daughter in a seven mile run. I wanted her easily identifiable in case we were separated or I happened to drop dead. A lot of people were ...

Re: Home defence with an airgun? Countries with no fire arms allowed

Re: Climate change. World ends by 2050.

We really need a "like" button on here. This is what I've been saying for decades now. Can humans have an impact on climate? Sure, through activities like planting crops or deforestation, but such things happen naturally too with fires and normal weather variations. Yes, we have an impact, no, it's...

Re: Climate change. World ends by 2050.

I realize that climate change/collapse is a favorite tool of the media to sell commercials but this seems a bit worse than the meteor that "might" hit. It is that it's too far away? Should we talk about things we can do to help our children and grandchildren?

Re: The definitive ZS MRDS thread

I'll start. For a number of reasons I think they're an interesting but expensive option that I would like to pursue. The benefits are a more refined method of aiming that do not force the user to simply focus on the front sight and could provide better situational awareness. I am really intriguded b...

The definitive ZS MRDS thread

Not sure how definite this will be but I say we give it a shot! In case you're wondering, MRDS stands for Miniature Red Dot Sights and it usually refers to the electronic sights that all of the cool kids are putting on their pistols. To kick off the fun, please feel free to elaborate as you see fit ...

Re: All purpose "Help me build my Glock" thread

Thank you, Good Sir! My long skinny fingers love it. Shame it is like carrying an outboard motor around.

Just to keep things on track: Over the past three years I have switched from a rabid Glock hater to a devoted Glock fan. Crazy, huh?
