    City Park Signage Question

    I ran across a "rules" sign at a city park on Saturday with the wife and kid. The sign said, "Leave alcoholic beverages and firearms at home." Had a picture of a pistol with the standard red circle with a slash. My understanding is that the city can't post that. The park itself is next to...

    Duty to Inform?

    I know that I do not have a duty to inform during a stop, but I have been unable to answer the follow up question by searching (albeit poorly) the forums. I will start with the assumption that during the course of the officer running my license, the fact that I have a CPL will become known. If...

    So I am currently looking at a new house with my wife, and I just had a question pop up. Thought someone here may happen to know the answer off hand or have material they could cite for it. The property line of the new back yard is shared with the sports field for an elementary school. So...

    Quick CC holster question.

    So I just picked up a S&W M&P 40c, the problem I am having is that the only one available to me here has the thumb safety. To those of you who might have more experience with this, how much of a comfort loss should I expect? Also are there any specific type of IWB holsters I might look into in...

    Family comfort with guns, small OC report.

    So I was finally able to convince my wife to go shooting with me today. While I am from the south and have been shooting since before I could properly wipe myself, my wife is native to the northwest, and the extent of her shooting and handling experience is a .22LR bolt action. Her first...
