War is good business and sometimes you just have to justify your existence; If there is no enemy, create one!

The game is, "We're from the Government and we're here to help!
Roger that.

For as long as I can remember, we've been at war with somebody somewhere.
Even in times of "peace" there's been covert ops in places that no one ever hears about, unless ya run into some "green beanies" (I can say that and get away with it cuz we worked with em enough times as to be accepted as peers) that tell of "war stories" that never officially happened, 3rd world dictators overthrown, coups flattened before they could happen, drug cartels thwarted (the ones who wouldn't play by the "rules").
Yep...never any shortage of "enemies".  They're lined up like airliners waiting to land at LAX.

My 12 GA double barrel safety slides off really easy.  So easy in fact that I don't load the chambers any longer until ready to fire. 

This is primarily in case someone, like one of the boys, or my wife ever picks it up for some reason while I'm not around.

Although a safety lever is not the "do all" in guns, it does count.

Keep guns in US military; water scarcity needs solutions:

Regarding the Nov. 9 Briefing, “Why the US protects private guns”: The National Rifle Association uses the misleading term “the right to bear arms,” setting the agenda for any discussion on having a comprehensive system of gun control. The Second Amendment to the Constitution reads, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”This means that the public as a collective (not as individuals) has the right and the duty to use weaponry to maintain and protect the sovereign government(s) established under the Constitution. The actions taken to secure the State are to be through properly organized military units arising from the citizenry at large.

Some people have trouble reading and understanding the U.S. Constitution. I think that if the writers of the Constitution had wanted the state to have the power they would have said "the States" not "the people".

Bersa looks great. What happened to the pistol to cause it to look the way it did previously?

Interaction between whatever was used to prevent corrosion during shipment and the plastic bag that was used to ship the pistol.  This was found to be a problem during early shipments of the pistols, from what I understand. The Bersa Thunder 45UC that I have suffered from the same malady, but not as bad. My other Bersa pistols (one 9UC, a 45UC, and two .380 pistols) are fine in finish and function.  I have not observed problems with any other Bersa pistols at local gun shops or gun shows.

On a side note; I think that the Bersa line of pistols, and the Rock Island Armory (Armscor) pistols, are underrated. They are excellent firearms for the price being asked.

I carried the Bersa Thunder 45UC Pro for several years as my EDC and it is now relegated as my EDC "bag" pistol and goes whenever the bag goes with me.  It is a fully trustworthy pistol.

Just off topic a bit; I am currently carrying the Rock Island Armory 1911 FA Tactical (a full-size "Government" model with bonus features) as my EDC.  I am looking to procure the Rock Island Armory 1911 MS Tactical (a "Commander" length pistol with bonus features, such as the Rock Ultra or the Rock Standard), since I prefer the "Commander" length 1911 for carry.  If I did not trust these pistols, I would not waste my money or time on them.
