Re: Neighborhood "Cossacks"

There is no such thing as a "civilian police force". On the contrary, all police are civilians. Only if using the narrowed definition of civilian vs military. Civilian can have a broader definition as it does in the above example. I have no doubt that you know the context that the word is being use...

Re: Neighborhood "Cossacks"

Recently, there has been a spate of crime that has become very rife in my little area of the city. I was approached by a neighbor yesterday while I was cooking on my BBQ, he was very angry with the lack of police cooperation toward the growing epidemic of criminal disease spreading throughout our l...

Re: When to use different kinds of prep pads and antiseptics

Alcohol pads, only use on unbroken skin. Isopropyl alcohol cause pain in open wounds, damages living skin cells and is best used to disinfect things, not wounds. BZK's, use after you've stopped any bleeding to clean up minor wounds before bandaging. Iodine, best used, IMO, around a wound to help pro...

Re: Explosions at Boston Marathon

Still nothing. I flipped on the news this morning (my son howled at the momentary interruption of Sprout) and some official somewhere said that they're getting 'close', but no cigar. It is pretty weird that they refuse to put out a photo. They post pics of suspects all the time with Amber Alerts an...

Not too much different you could have done initially.

That's cool then, stick with the rules. Your own kit though, you should stock up......Jack, how do you use the calcium carbonate? How do you assess to use it w/o a cardiac monitor?........ I'm missing something I think?.....Do you mean you have carried calcium gluconate? In a bristo-jet?..............

Re: I am Now a Glock Believer, Any Others?

but seriously the glock is the MOST reliable handgun ever, it a fact. First let me say I agree that glocks are a reliable and accurate brand of firearm. I have shot them and can't complain. However, this statement is incorrect. The winner of most reliable and durable handguns go to the hi-point pis...

Re: Newest handgun...

The Glock has come home for the holidays, picked it up yesterday. The shop was jumping and the shelves were almost bare, the Ruger Gunsite rifle I had my eye on is long gone. Hoping to take the Glock to the range tomorrow, the LC9 is at a friends house getting fitted with a custom holster so I won't...

Just a thought. I've seen and read a lot of posts and comments on this and other forums regarding the alleged easy access this killer had to his Mother's weapons.

So I picked up the LC9 and as luck would have it while I was at the shop I spied a clean looking Glock 26 in the used case... Now I can compare the two of them directly, well in another couple of weeks anyway. The Glock can't go thru the DROS system until 12/11 so I'll be picking it up in time to gi...

I am a Glock Certified Armorer, and the only tool you will really need is the sub $10 tool. It will take your Glock down to the bare bones, that is what is great about a Glock. There is no need for the $10 mat, or the video. It is an idiot proof gun... Save your money for Ammo. Tool (Or just buy a ...

Glock Armorers DVD...

Anyone have personal experience with the one available at Midway?

They've got a package for $40 that includes a Glock dis-assembly tool, a mat with parts diagrams printed on it and the DVDs.

Wondering if it's worth it for someone wanting to learn more about working on their personal guns.

Thanks

Well the verdict is in and it's what I feared. The 16" barreled carbine combined with the AGP folding stock is just about 1 3/4" too short to be legal. It's a nice looking rifle so I'm gonna leave it alone and use another 10-22 with the 18" barrel to make my folder. I don't think its possible to own...
