  Go to prayer meeting and attacked

Violence broke out in downtown Portland, Oregon, on Sunday as Antifa activists stormed a Patriot Prayer rally — about a year after similar dueling rallies triggered bloody fights and arrests.

Some protesters on Sunday hurled bottles and fireworks at police officers while others were caught with knives and other weapons, Portland Police tweeted. Officials encouraged people to get out of the immediate area "for their safety."

Wink Personal logs...
Posted by: David - 06-01-2018, 03:44 PM - Forum: Fitness - No Replies

Due to some injuries, bmeyers has me by four pages on our personal logs.  That is unacceptable and I'm back in the game now and on the prowl.

The rest of you guys...well, all I can say is you'd better get started!

  The Pistol Caliber Carbine Thread
Posted by: Bob - 05-30-2018, 01:48 AM - Forum: Defense - Replies (12)

So, I'm a fan of 9mm.  And, I'm a fan of the .357 lever for all sorts of reasons.  But mostly, pistol calibers from a ~16 barrel just have a certain extra zip, zing and oomph about them.  Given a good shot, I wouldn't hesitate to shoot a deer with the 20" .357 at maybe a hundred yards. Or - a great gun for indoors vs a rifle caliber, or just plinking zombies at suburban distances.

The P-cal carbine just really puts the needed power and range on pistol calibers.  So, my options are buy a .357 pistol (never a bad idea - 6" for target/Indoor/hunt and snub for conceal/bug out emergency .38 or .357...)

Or - what I should really do, go with my "deep" caliber.  That means 9mm.  So let's talk about the various platforms.  Tell me your experience, thoughts, or heck - just plain speculate!

  • IWI UZI (or some variation) - Built like a tank, a classic for years in desert combat.  Heavy...
  • MP5 - Stupid expensive even for a clone.  
  • High Point - Cheap as dirt, available in your choice of colors and Glock mag configs
  • Kel-Tec Sub2000 - Ultra compact, concealable, small.
  • Baretta CX4 Storm - Sleek, modern, ergo, reliable.  Obviously works well with PX4
  • Just Right/Etc - dedicated 9mm AR "style"
  • Actual AR in 9mm - expensive but super customizable

  Sad day
Posted by: bmyers - 05-29-2018, 07:12 PM - Forum: The Pub - Replies (7)

We had to put our 15 year old dog, Grace, down today. She had tumors throughout her body and was having a hard time moving. We got her from the pound, a rejected puppy, who had been tossed over the fence at the Humane Society. 

She was a wonderful addition to our family for years and will be missed.

  Single Stack Carry Thread (w/pics)

Started a similar thread on GT and figured it would go over well here.  As I've noted elsewhere, I've really developed an appreciation for single stack EDC guns.  So to start the ball rolling...

Some folks don't like the long DA trigger pull.  For a gun that I could potentially pocket carry I prefer it.  This one has a nice smooth pull that reminds me of a tuned up revolver.  I like a manual safety on a firearm if it's available.  Personal preference and I've trained that way as my first semi-auto was a single stack 9mm with thumb safety (Taurus PT908).  I like the sights.  bright in the day and bright at night.  Easy to pick up.  I installed the rubbery Talon Grips which are quite nice.  And as you can see in the photos, if you don't know whether or not it's loaded....you're just not trying LOL.

Good little gun.  Gotta say, I like the smooth lines on this one.
