What was that idiot thinking!!! / Re: What's the Point of it All?

Since I didn't believe that this could be true I had to look it up.
What we have here is what is commonly referred to as a child like mind at work.
We are in serious jeopardy as a species . . . . . climate change is effecting the brain cells.

Handguns & Holsters / Re: CBST Cross-Draw Setup for Kimber K6S
« Last post by Taurian on June 01, 2018, 05:19:47 AM »
Thanks for the kind words!  I am just happy that you did not call me an "expert."  I guess that, in a sense, I am an (ex)pert because I no longer have to use PERT (Program Efficiency and Review Technique) charts in managing my projects, but I am a PERT (Proficiency Evaluation and Review Type) person who has had three ex-wives and rate my performance at marriage fairly low.

I also refer to others for guidance when deciding to own/review a firearm. HICKOCK45 has probably cost me more money than anyone by his video reviews of firearms. Jeff Quinn at Gunblast.com has had an influence, as has SOOTCH00 in my decisions to invest in certain firearms.  I am not a video guy, at least in front of the camera, and would rather be involved in the (script) writing and producing of such while allowing others to be the actors. My face is well suited to radio.

I like to put my not-so-succinct method of review to work. I am not trying to sell anything to anybody. I just want to convey my impression of a particular firearm or piece of gear to others. Hopefully, the readers of my reviews will appreciate them as much as I enjoy creating them.

Edit - Missed a copy and past of the last letter of the Boulder Ordinance URL. Fixed link.

Colorado  -    Boulder has passed their so called assault weapons ban.   The assault weapons ban goes into effect 12/31/18. It states Mags for handguns can’t be larger than 15 rounds.  Regulates the possession of any firearm inside the city to those 21 or older. There are other items that were added/reworded  etc. You can read the new ordinance at the link below.  I did extract just the part of the document that pertained to the firearms ban.   The Document was over 500 pages. http://www.handgunlaw.us/documents/agopinions/Boulder.pdf

Vail Colorado has an ordinance that Handgunlaw.us just found out about.
6-3H-9: Magazine Capacity:    It shall be unlawful to carry, store or otherwise possess a magazine which will hold or may be modified to hold twenty-one (21) or more rounds. http://www.sterlingcodifiers.com/codebook/getBookData.php?id=&chapter_id=34532&keywords=#s304886

 Are they grandfathering those mags that don’t meet the law that were owned before the ordinance was passed? Does state preemption apply in these cases?  Things like this are the reason that many states passed preemption in the first place. Driving or even walking across a line only sometimes visible on a map takes a good person and turns them into a criminal. Preemption can’t have exceptions. Those exceptions will do a lot more harm than good. 

Texas  –  The Texas Dept of Public Safety has put up a short list of approved online training courses.  You still have to have the shooting part of the training face to face with the instructor.   More information can be found at the online training listing here:
http://www.dps.texas.gov/RSD/LTC/LicenseRegistration/2018ocpCertifiedDpsList.pdf

Louisiana  –  Governor has signed SB 402 that removes the 8 hours of extra training mandated by the state to carry in a place of worship if allowed by the place of worship. It is only required if the owners or insurance policy in place at the place of worship requires it.  This new legislation takes effect August 1, 2018.
http://www.legis.la.gov/legis/ViewDocument.aspx?d=1096104

At www.handgunlaw.us things have slowed down immensely from the previous two years when many good changes were made in numerous states with just a few setbacks.   There are a lot of bills and talk about banning this or that or taking peoples guns “Who May Be” a threat to themselves or others but most are not moving along the path to becoming law. Will try to keep you updated on those changes that affect those who legally carry a firearm to protect themselves and their loved ones.

Read my review of the Remora 2-in-1 magazine carrier. You may just like this one, as I do.

Handguns & Holsters / Re: CBST Cross-Draw Setup for Kimber K6S
« Last post by oldranger53 on May 29, 2018, 09:17:45 AM »
Thanks for reading the article.  I may drop the rear (now the front) mounting clip down one notch to get more of a 'neutral" cant. The CBST is obviously not broken in yet, and will better conform to the body once it is.

There are some IWB holsters out there with swivels that allow the holster to be adjusted for cant, but I have found them to be unstable - especially those for short barreled firearms.

I thought that I would take a chance on setting up a CBST for cross-draw carry, and it is stable and works well in the cross-draw position. A neutral cant on the shell-to-backing would have been better, but sometimes you just have to work with what's thrown at you.
No problem!
You are my "go to guy" whenever I want and need detailed information about anything gun related!

I ALWAYS see what you have to say first, before looking at any other source.

Happy Tuesday

Well that was something to see.
Thanks Steve . . . . .
Because it all happened so fast I would have to guess that the addition of the fox hanging on produced a weight factor that caused the eagle to let go.

Hi
I read this article earlier today.

I kept thinking, while reading the recommendations, of the "Parable of the Cave" of Plato's Republic...book IV, I think.

What I mean by that is how all the recommendations fell within currently established norms, and variations on well worn themes, just like in "the cave".

I have a feeling the "cave" is way bigger than I'd previously thought. That is frightening.
