    Henderson KIA

    Went to Henderson Kia Saturday to visit the service department. We bought a new Kia last July for the wife. When we bought the car we did so open carry. I now notice they have a sign on their door stating no weapons. (Picture of a pistol with a slash and circle around it. I sent them a note...

    The wife and I went to Outback on Stephanie in Henderson today as we do frequently on Saturday for lunch. For the first time prominently displayed next to the door is a sign saying firearms are not allowed. I will be dropping them a line letting them know that they have lost a customer. That we...

    Man with pellet gun killed by police.

    Ok, this is not a police bashing thread, nor am I judging what happened as I was not there. Or, maybe I am. What scares me is that between two officers 50 rounds of ammo were expended and the suspect was only hit 3 times. It sounds from the news story that he was not hiding but standing on a...

    Recommendation on magazine.

    If a guy (or gal) was to make a 1911 their carry gun, what magazine would you rely on? I've tried the Mec-Gar, cheap, and with a little spring pruning is fairly reliable on ball ammo.

    Hi Chief Moers, it's me again.

    I couldn't find the old thread on this and got tired of looking. Last summer I "registered" my new Ruger LCR by sending a certified letter and copy of the reciept to the Henderson Chief of Police per HMC 8-98-030 which clearly states that I must register with him, with no mention of the...

    Ain't it the truth.....

    You may have heard on the news about a Southern California man who was put under 72-hour psychiatric observation when it was found he owned 100 guns and allegedly had 100,000 rounds of ammunition stored in his home. By Southern California standards, someone owning 100,000 rounds is considered...

    As of today: "Our approach has always been to follow local laws, and of course, we will continue to do so. But starting today we will also respectfully request that guests not bring firearms to Target – even in communities where it is permitted by law." I was just in there yesterday and the...

    From "Boombox" by Dixon Diaz "Why are liberals so hot for gun control laws? Any fool knows that criminals don't obey laws." " Because it has the word control in it." Sorry, I couldn't finger out how to paste the entire strip here. TBG
