Re: Pocket pistols make my peepee hurt

Anyone that isn't hooked up by hands I seriously doubt is going to be anymore injured by a pocket pistol. A knife to me, being almost omni directional, beats a directional, needs to be aimed pocket pistol. The wounds are graver, the strikes are far simpler and require a lot less training. If your t...

story That is quite sad, actually. Also funny, but sad. :? Agreed.

He could - or should - have been able to indulge whatever freak...

Re: Dealing with a knife threat

Re: Pocket pistols make my peepee hurt

In my experience fights have taken place at 0-3 ft. Putting my hand in my pocket would have been a bad move. Dannus I have some responses but I'm on my phone so it's going to be later. Hand in pocket is a bad first move, but so is hand to OWB belt holstered pistol, or hand to tactical folder, or ha...

Re: Talking .380 pocket pistol blues

Will a can of OC spray or a folding knife really be any faster to deploy than a pistol? Maybe faster than a pocket pistol, IDK. Not faster than a belt or IWB pistol. No, but it's not against the law to OC a can of pepper spray or a Taser. Spidey sense says it shady, transfer to hand. Ambush, unarme...

Re: Talking .380 pocket pistol blues

[devil's advocate rant] I prefer guns larger than pocket (OP should get a Glock 19 and learn to conceal it) - but I can put round after round in an 8 inch circle, firing DA fairly quickly, at 25 yards with a J-Frame loaded with .38 +P or light (but still higher than .38 +P) .357 rounds - and I am n...

Re: Dealing with a knife threat

Running is also problematic if you have a spouse/children with you. But even more crucial to DO if you have spouse or kids with you. You might have the sand to stay in the fight yourself, but you don't want to prolong your kids or wife's exposure to the violence. Harder to run with little kids, sur...

Re: Talking .380 pocket pistol blues

I vote none of them. All pocket pistols suck. All. At the ranges they are going to be employed is contact distances. At contact distances they are woefully underpowered, generally very difficult to shoot especially when some guy is trying to smash your face and putting your hand in your pocket duri...

Re: Revolver as bug-out gun

Things to remember: OP was talking about a bug-out gun. Not an INCH gun for deer hunting. I don't think anyone in their right mind intends to walk off into the apocalypse with just a pistol. That said, why not carry your normal sidearm to get you to your BOL? OTOH, if you think there's a very low t...

Re: Dealing with a knife threat

Running assumes you can out sprint your assailant, who statistically speaking is a thin 16-24 year old male. Not saying running isn't the right solution - just pointing out running effectively takes practice and conditioning just like staying for the fight. And in all likelihood, if your goal is su...

Re: Stuck Slide on AMT 1911, Live round in chamber.

When my XD locked up in a similar fashion, the aforementioned worktable trick was successful. Don't know if the 1911 platform is more dangerous in this regard than a striker fired pistol. Brace the front, top edge of the slide against the edge of the table. Grip the frame. Tap downwards on the frame...

Re: how many of you think a zombie Apocalypse will never hap

I was referring to the real, pre-scrappy, animated Hannah-Barbera tv series "Scooby-Doo" that premiered in 1969. Not the hideous straight to video counterfeits foisted on the public by Mook [and, in all likellihood, Robot Squad!] animation in the 90s. Standards people. Authenticity.
