Re: How did you choose your CCW?

Glock 30. It has all the advantages as the rest of the Glocks, but for me it fits better in my hand. And while I don't buy into the whole "real men carry a .45, anything less is crap" argument, I will say that having 11 rounds of .45 goodness in a relatively small pistol makes me happy. My reload fo...

Re: my plan... ok make fun of me

If your wife likes the Walther P22, keep it. I have one in the family, they're cool little guns, good practice, and a lot of fun. I'd see how she likes the P99 in 9mm. It's going to have very similar ergonomics, and is right around the size of a Glock 19 but a bit thinner. I'm tempted to buy one for...

For rifles, the obvious is two AR-15s. There's lots of threads on here about which to go with. You could also check out the Arsenal AKs, I've heard a lot of good about them and I think they're in the $700-800 range. For pistols, look at Glock, the Smith and Wesson M&P, and the Springfield XD.

Re: Urban predators (non-human kind) they are here without f

Recorded attacks of coyotes on humans are very rare, even here in the southwest where we have so many of them in and around our cities. An adult human is way too large of prey for a 25-35lb animal to take down. All of the ones I've encountered weren't afraid of humans, but wouldn't get close to them...

Re: Surefire Scout Lights – what am I missing?

just remember that what is good for a training/gun class/HD gun, and what is good for a real world gun may be two different things. For many on this forum (myself included), we train and take "gun classes" primarily for home defense and therefore this IS our "real world". I don't give a shit about ...

Re: Dog vs Cat

Training a cat is going to be more difficult than training a dog; your dog is hardwired to fit into a social structure, NEEDS leadership, and wants to please that leader. A cat doesn't. Even a cat that likes you doesn't actually need you. They aren't social animals for the most part. That said, you ...

Re: Mas weighs in on external Safeties.

I have a hard time buying that someone who knows what a handgun is wouldn't be able to operate it because the safety is on. It takes about half a second to disengage safety if you do know where it is, maybe a couple seconds if you don't. Stress. Sure, pretty much anybody could go to a range, pick u...

Suizen's advice is spot on, I've been doing pretty much the same thing with my dog, who is dog aggressive on lead, and it works well.

Re: Mas weighs in on external Safeties.

If the problem is the bad guy shooting you with your gun you have to work on other skill sets - combative, grappling, threat management. Not rely on a 'safety'. Not to disagree with you, but just having skills in those areas is no guarantee that a bigger, stronger, more skilled opponent couldn't ge...

I try to avoid gun advertisement catalogs, even if there are occasionally good articles in it. I'll weigh in anyway. I do not see an external safety as something that should require an article.
