Need help deciding on EDC items for personal defense.

Aside from my cell phone and a small Swiss army knife, I don't carry much else with me (that is to say, on my person) on a daily basis. Since I go too many places each week where CCWs are not allowed (work, bars, etc.), I rarely bring my .357 with me. Heck, I only even carry it in the car a few days...

Re: Handgun for my Mom - Opinions needed.

Absintheur- Yup, my mom and I agreed that we'd be going to the range for a couple of hours the same day she buys the gun, and after we go over some basic gun safety/gun handling practice. In addition to the knowledge that I will try to pass on, I am also going to try and encourage her heavily to tak...

Re: Handgun for my Mom - Opinions needed.

I got my wife a Ruger SP-101 in stainless. It shoots 38 special or 357 magnum. 38 spl. is a pretty low recoil round. The pistol also has hogue rubber grips. These really make the gun for ladies. A little weighty but not bad. (like posted before weight overcomes some of the recoil.) It's super simpl...

Handgun for my Mom - Opinions needed.

Ok fellas. I've finally convinced my mom that she needs to get a gun. She lives alone, and also makes many long car trips by herself due to her job. Since she isn't a gun nut like most of us (myself included 8)) , buying one gun for home defense and one for car/concealed carry is out of the question...

Re: Which machete? Want a strong affordable cold steel? What use

I'd say it can do anything a good knife can do if you keep the edge on it (except for precision stuff like whittling, etc.). Cold Steel is supposed to be a really good brand. I think anything made by them should be top notch. I've been wanting to buy one of their knives for hog hunting, but instead ...

Re: Huntin' for Dino's

I tell you what though...I would be the baddest dude in all of Texas if I could somehow get my hands on a pair of Velociraptor-skin boots. 8) Especially if you could keep the claw on there. :lol: Holy crap! It'd be like that one bad guy from Road House with the razor blade in his boot...only like 1...

Re: Huntin' for Dino's

Velociraptors: Ideally, I would be far, far away from these critters when I popped them. I figure my .30-06 would work fine, especially with the 180-grain rounds I use. However, if I wasn't able to hunt them from the relative safety of a distant tree-stand or well-armored ground blind...I would want...

Re: A re-take on an old thread: If you can have one, what?

Remington 870 Express (used) with a synthetic stock. Then I'd spend the remaining $175 or so on ammo, cleaning supplies/spare parts, and a bigger magazine. I'd also saw off the barrel to 18" myself and save the extra money that some people spend on buying a "combat" or "home defense" shotgun. :D

Re: Attempted Break-In: What I Learned (LONG)

What was in that black bag he threw? Ya know...I was so weirded out by the whole thing that I didn't even want to know. I figured if it was drugs or money or something illegal then I probably didn't want to take possession of it, even just for a moment to look. Stupid, I know, but I was a paranoid ...

Attempted Break-In: What I Learned (LONG)

I am fortunate in that I have not had many experiences where my safety was compromised. I sure as heck can't compare with some of the things you guys have had happen to you. However, I did have one important experience years ago that taught me some valuable lessons, which I will mention after I bore...

Re: Cleaning and Maintenance of your firearms

I apologize if this got double posted somehow (I'm new :mrgreen: ) but I have a question regarding barrel cleaning. I always run a brush through and then patches until they come out spotlessly clean. Is this neccessary, or should I just pass through a few solvent-soaked patches and not worry about i...
