Re: How big is your ASP

I carry a 16" lightweight or a 16" all-steel. The lightweight works best for plainclothes work. I had one of the new 12" pocket models but got rid of it when I had to subdue a belligerent drunk on the 4th of July and it had little effect (not enough mass and couldn't get enough momentum behind it).

Re: Rossi M88 Questions

I owned one for several years; they are sturdy, reliable and accurate. Holsters for S&W J-Frames will fit these guns. I'd buy one again in a minute!

Re: New ASP Talon disc-lock baton

I was issued a Monadonock AutoLock for awhile and I wasn't too impressed; the push-to-close feature was nice, but nothing to write home about. I've used an ASP for the better part of 20 years and have never had an issue, but I think I'll stick to the traditional friction lock. Also I've seen the pri...

Re: What rifle would you arm a small civlian army with?

Rifle - AK47. Reasoning - With about a bazillion of them out there, there will always be parts available IF they break. Simple, straight forward manual-of-arms. Not the most accurate of rifles but no slouch either out to 200 meters, after that just massed volley fire. Pistol - Glock 17. Reasoning - ...

Re: .32 APC recoil

Without knowing the full story its hard to judge what would be "best". IMNSHO recoil sensitivity is a training issue. Start with a 22 and move up. Don't scare them by handing them a 44 and then laughing when it hits them in the face. Start slow - a few rounds at a time, and then move onto a larger c...

Re: Pistol/Carbine Redundancy

I have two combos - my Glock 19 and KelTec 9mm carbine; both use Glock 17 magazines and I have a couple of 33 round "fun sticks" to throw in my bag. The second is a Marlin 1895 in .357 and a Ruger Blackhawk. This gives me two 38/357 weapons. Oh and I have a 9mm conversion cylinder for the Blackhawk ...

Re: Bug Out Uniform are BDUs a bad idea?

In a Get Outta Dodge scenario I want to look as neutral as possible. This will go a long way to ensure I am not hassled by the police, military or badguys who all will equate military gear to lots of weapons, ammo, food, water, etc. Stay low profile and avoid problems.

September 1982 - Fort Jackson SC, at the bottom of Tank Hill. Our Senior DS was on leave for the first two weeks of training. SSG Duggins (who was fairly new at the time) kept saying "Just wait, Sgt Rallis is coming". And boy, did he - it was Monday and we fell out for PT. We were all standing in fo...

Re: Green Beret vs. Spetsnaz

Didn't see the show but I think it's an apples-to-oranges comparison. US Special Forces develop force multipliers by training the indiginous forces in the area to help fight the enemy. Killing the bad guys and blowing their stuff up is a seconday mission. Spetznaz troops are primarily assigned to be...

They're tougher. I got the Airweight simply for the weight issue. Wearing a suit with a bunch of stuff it a...

I guess it boils down to what are you planning to use it for. If your going to do any hunting then the 30-30 is the way to go; lots of different loads for lots of different uses. If you plan to use it as a "social rifle" with ranges under 100 yds then a pistol caliber may be worth a look. My choice ...

It can't end well. Eventually someone will do something stupid (read that that Chinese) and shot will be exchanged.
