    Healthcare anti-firearm rhetoric is alive and well

    9 people die and 1000 are injured each day from distracted driving. Are they going to start asking about having a cell phone in you car? The average person needs to worry a whole lot more about being killed by some idiot texting while driving then worry about being shot. TBG

    memorial day 2019

    Perhaps the wars you speak of were not necessary and you have some validity in saying so. However, that does not detract from the fact that those men and women served honorably doing what was required of them in service to their nation. TBG

    Request for Participants, Gun Ownership Project

    I remember this same "survey" several years ago. Don't remember what the outcome was but I believe it was in the Nevada thread. TBG

    NRA-ILA: The more things change...

    SAF is not a lobby group. They file legal actions against mostly government entities in protection of our rights. And they do a bang up job with many important victories. They have said that ERPO must include due process. I believe that would mean that someone must have been adjudicated mentally...

    Texas House Speaker declares 'constitutional carry' dead after activist shows up at his home

    Below is my letter to my local Texas State Representative, Doc Anderson, regarding the shameful acts of Speaker Bonnen. I am demanding that you as our Texas State Representative sternly admonish the Speaker for his outright lies, now proven, against Chris McNutt and the Texas Gun Rights...

    New Sheriff in Town? "Oliver North takes on red flag laws"

    I have been a member of the NRA for near forty years now. If it wasn't for the fact that I have been a life member for most of that time, I would've taken my money and used it for supporting several of the other Second Amendment groups, and I do. I argued with the NRA leadership a long time...

    medical weed = no guns

    Anybody who takes drugs for recreation in my opinion is an idiot. On the other hand freedom means you have the right to be act stupid. There should be no laws against drugs. That said, a doctor should be able to prescribe any drug he believes might help a patient. For instance, a person is...

    Universal background checks now law in Nevada

    So sad to hear this. It's what happens when you let democrats take over your government. This is probably the start of all the crap to come. As an ex Nevadan I feel your pain... TBG

    SCOTUS’s New 2A Case, to address nullification of the Right to Arms. Dave Kopel at Volokh Conspiracy

    The best we can do at this point is to donate to the 2nd Amendment Foundation. They bring action after action in defense of our right to bear arms. Next is to push the President and your Senators to only nominate and confirm pro 2nd Amendment judges.

    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...

    Outback steakhouse

    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. With any flat nose such as truncated or SWC, they nose dive into the feed ramp and stall. If I drop down from...

    Sales tax

    When I went to pick up my new 1911 at my transfer dealer, he told me that as of January of this year he is required to collect sales tax on this item. Even though he did not sell it. I bought if from Bud's online. There are many problems with this, one being that the transfer dealer is being...

    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...
