    My company vehicle is a 2015 Ford Escape with 15k miles on it. Horrible little vehicle in every way. It is shared by 10 other guys in my department, most of which are young guys who have thrashed it. It has seen air multiple times, rarely goes...

    You really like to argue everything, don't you? There is a huge difference in the taste of beef depending on where they are raised and what they ate. Most beef in the west is free range beef eating crappy weeds and other vegetation. Such beef...

    I think the person that advocated firing a revolver from his shorts pocket and stated that a pistol couldn't be fired in the same manner should have to prove what he stated.

    Went to their website and the nearest place that sells it is 50 miles away, and in the same town as the only place that sells .40 S&W for 50 miles. I'll add it to my shopping list for my next trip down there, which should be next week. Thanks...

    I've only seen it in the movies. Seems to me that if you had enough room in your pocket to rotate a revolver upwards towards an attacker, then you have plenty of room for a slide to function, since it rotates rearward along the same plane as your...

    I like Glocks and they fit me well, but I sure wouldn't put up with a pistol that not only didn't fit right, but caused physical injury. I believe the only pistol that I was injured from shooting was my 1911 in the Navy due to slide bite.

    I bought a Glock 22 back in the late 90's and it was fine, but wasn't happy with the accuracy, so traded it in on a Glock 24C. Was very happy with the accuracy with that, but it was just too big. Traded that in on a Glock 31, the .357 Sig version...

    Since Walmart stopped selling pistol ammo, that left one sporting goods store in the area that sold ammo. And they are pricey. I bought a 1911 in .40 S&W and decided to buy a few boxes of .40 S&W to try in it. Didn't want to dip into my stash,...

    I was born in the winter of `68 in Moscow. My mom had to be taken to the hospital via snowmobile since my folks lived in a country home. I don't think there's been a winter that bad around here since.

    Good tips! Yeah, when I would work up a box of 50 .40 S&W or 10mm rounds for a match, it typically took me about 2 hours with my single-stage and attention to detail. When I switched to 9mm, I just stopped by Walmart and picked up a box of...
