| Outdoor Board|| Batton Rouge CCW Class -- Saturday, August 2nd - dawg23 on 7/24/14 at 3:11 am|
I will be teaching a Concealed Handgun Permit class on Saturday, August 2nd at my office on Siegen Lane.
I currently have two seats remaining. This is the last class I'll be teaching prior to the start of SEC football season//hunting seasons.
Details of topics that will be covered can be found...

I don't duck hunt all that much, nor do I hunt quail or doves a lot. But I know they can "sneak up" on me, and I find that I sometimes have to shoulder the gun and fire more quickly than I'd like to. That (and shooting clays) is when gun fit is important (to me).

I have a .22 LR SP101 in satin finish stainless steel, never fired, (NIB), wooden stocks, that I'll sell for what I paid for it ($625).
Warranty forms have not been submitted, so it would go to buyer with full warranty.
Sale would be F-T-F in BR....

Sounds like it might be a fairly good deal, depending on the holster and the ammo.

| Outdoor Board|| re: Benelli Super Vinci - dawg23 on 7/19/14 at 8:23 pm|
I have about 30-40 cases (7500-10000 rounds) of low brass sporting clays shells through mine, plus ~ 1/2 case of magnum duck loads. Mine has never hiccupped a single time.
I do try to clean it every 1000 rounds or so. Maybe that's why it's so reliable.

One or two of those "reasons" are [u]theoretically[/u] valid. But there's a point of diminishing returns with handguns (all of which are relatively puny -- compared to shotguns and centerfire rifles).
Somewhere there's a "minimum" line to not be crossed. Most SD handgun gurus will tell you that l...

Very few HP .380's (maybe Buffalo Bore) will penetrate 12" (in ballistic gel - this is the FBI minimum for penetration) and expand to over .80 caliber out of a short barrel.
Federal HST in 9mm will do this. And the 9mm bullet will be heavier (147 grain) vs. ~ 80-90 grain for a .380...

Lot of good advice from Tiger on the Hill. ^^^
Much of the advice posted earlier in this thread is surely well-intentioned. But a lot of it is misguided.
1. Rear pocket < front pocket. Guarding against a gun grab is really hard when the gun is carried in a rear pocket.
2. 380 < 9mm. Why on ...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Bought a Shield 9mm today(update pg3) - dawg23 on 7/15/14 at 10:00 am|
That's the right way. Those small guns do make it harder to stay clear of the ejection port.
I guess that's another "benefit" of the out-of-battery feature. [u]Theoretically[/u] the gun can't go off while you have the slide pulled back. But I'm with you -- I don't want my hand or fingers over the...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Bought a Shield 9mm today(update pg3) - dawg23 on 7/15/14 at 9:22 am|
I can see where the "out of battery" might be disconcerting for those used to revolvers.
All semi-autos will have this attribute. It's a safety feature. It means you can't shove the muzzle into a guy's rib cage before you pull the trigger, but that's about the only "downside" that I can see.

| Outdoor Board|| re: when am I allowed to use/brandish a gun? - dawg23 on 7/13/14 at 6:01 pm|
1. Brandishing (called "illegal carry" in Louisiana statutes) is illegal. Drawing a handgun in self defense isn't brandishing.
2. As was said, driving to your home after a confrontation isn't wise. Drive to a police station.
3. ALWAYS phone in a threat to the cops -- unless you're the one who ...

Yes you can attach it to the bottom of the boat [u]if[/u] the boat has fiberglas hull. I'd use fiberglas resin instead of silicone -- for sure don't have the silicone too thick if you do that roue (and as was said, make sure there are no air bubbles trapped under the transducer).

| Outdoor Board|| re: Is a 9mm a must for your arsenal? (and a brief thank you to the OB) - dawg23 on 7/13/14 at 2:38 am|
The data you listed is largely immaterial.
Since virtually all SD ammo in 9, 40 and 45 will penetrate to the FBI minimum of 12"' in ballistic gelatin, EXPANSION (after it penetrates the BG) becomes the more important attribute.
The good 9mm bullets will expand to .83 - .85 caliber.

Never -- we freeze filets (double bag with water in each bag, squeeze out all the water) in QUART bags. We label the bags with date, and eat oldest fish first. When frying fish it's pretty easy to figure out how many bags to thaw - rerely if ever have any go to waste.
