re: First visit to the pistol range in 2 years - dawg23
[quote] I'm not the end all be all expert on this, but the experts I have seen don't use lasers. I think that when you train with a laser, you are only focusing on where that red dot is, and that is incorrect. Practicing incorrectly is extremely detrimental[/quote] This ^^^^ I'm no expert eithe...

[quote]why in God's name would you not get a laser to get the margin of error as close to zero as possible? Think about it.[/quote] I have (thought about it). As have most of the people under whom I have trained. Lasers are a good tool for people who can no longer see their sights. A RDS would b...

[quote]After looking around, I was curious to hear if the guys at LSP had tested and Xtreme Penetrator bullets.

re: Home defense ammo - dawg23
[quote]I understand your sentiment but even if a G19 is easy to dress around, not everyone carries one. I carry an M&P9c, which is slightly smaller, but has a 3.5" barrel rather than a 4". That half inch could possibly make a difference with certain loads since pistol powders burn so quickly. [/quot...

re: biometric gun safe recommendations? - dawg23
Lots of people need them to keep them out of the hands of children (or stupid friends). This is especially a concern for those who have more than one SD handgun gun in the house -- obviously one can't keep an eye on all of them at once. ...

[quote]open quickly without fail obviously because it's for defense.[/quote] This probably won't be biometric. Assuming you mean "handgun vault" instead of "gun safe," you ought to at least look at the vaults equipped with Simplex locks. No batteries to fail, quick & easy to open in the dark. ...

[quote]Also take into account that not everyone carries a handgun with a 4" barrel[/quote]Your point is well taken, but 4" isn't a real long barrel. The [u]shortest[/u] 9mm Glock has a 3.5" barrel (well, actually 3.4"). I understand that some folks choose poodle-shooter sized handguns. But it's j...

[quote]Most people would fail anyway. [/quote] And the solution is to be alert (Condition "Yellow"), get your hand on your gun, and start creating distance before they get that close. Easier said than done, but it's what we need to do. This is some of the "awareness//avoidance" stuff we cove...

1. Military small arms training within the past 5 years will get you an exemption from taking a class. 2. I'm sure the military didn't teach you the civilian rules of engagement in Louisiana. You should take a class irrespective of any possible exemption (might save you a few decades in a Louisia...
