Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

I picked this lil' feller up a couple weeks ago, but have been pulling hurricane duty since then....a Lipsey's SP101 with 3" barrel, adjustable sights, and partial barrel shroud.

Re: 2020 Hurricane Season

Sally curb-stomped us pretty good. I'd say, as far as damage to the powerlines goes, she was twice as bad as Ivan back in '04....even though Ivan was a stronger storm. Sally's agonizingly slow approach and rainfall saturated the ground pretty good, and trees went down everywhere. Our engineers say ...

Also note the tactical dirt colored one seems to have an AWB-compliant stock on it.

I've read between 30 and 50 shots were fired, but luckily no one is reported to have been hit. Local news is also reporting that the guy had ...

I think I was fourteen when I saw my first Glock in the wild. It was at a small, newly opened gun store in the area that me & Dad would frequent while Stepmom was next door grocery shopping.
