    Fluff and buff? Can you elaborate for this chucklehead?
  2. I liked Gowdy wiping that smirk of his face during that, though

    Carry Belt

    Well, I decided to try one of 5.11's Operator belts. Feels good; doesn't flex much, if at all. I'll give it a go for a while and see where it takes me.

    Carry Belt

    I did on occasion. I want to be able to when the opportunity arises.

    Carry Belt

    Let's say I did, Jugs. Which would you recommend? I want to be able to carry my Judge comfortably and without any sag or play in the material of the Belt, as a benchmark. Which would you go for?

    Carry Belt

    Mullet- I love leather, but enjoy the relative comfort of the nylon. Edit: I definitely will check out the Riggers. Anyone have thoughts on the 5.11 or whatever-it-is brand?

    Carry Belt

    I had thought of that, CJ. And the more I do, the more fun it sounds like.
  8. I don't have a belt to use as a support for a carry-specific purpose, but am looking around for one in the next ten days. What do you fellas that do use for their needs?
  9. Oh, now that's a sexy beast.

    BOOM! Gun felt good; had some misfeeds, but I chalk that up to inappropriate loading of the magazines for the first time. They're picky.
  11. What was your answer? Has she been shooting? My answer was to ask her who she would blame if I theoretically drove our minivan into a group of people, resulting in multiple fatalities, the van or me?She said she would blame me. Why? Because I was the one driving the car. And then she got an enlightened look on her face, said "Oh" and has not participated in any anti-gun rallying of any sort since. And she has even taken my G17 for a round. She said it was interesting, but she's not sure if she wants to do it again. She shot 147 grain 9mm rounds, so I offered her to do some .22s next time.
  12. I have already had to counter the "But, Dad! Guns kill!" argument from my teenage daughter.
  13. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/03/22/marjory-stoneman-douglas-high-school-requiring-clear-backpacks-prevent-further-gun-violence/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+breitbart+%28Breitbart+News%29 The Florida high school where 17 people died after being shot in February is requiring its students to wear clear backpacks in hopes that the move will prevent further gun violence. Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert W. Runcie announced Wednesday in a letter to parents of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students that all pupils will only be allowed to wear clear backpacks to school after next week’s spring break. Runcie added that the district would provide those backpacks at no cost to students who cannot afford them once the rule goes into effect. The move by the district comes as the school attempts to introduce other security measures—including possible airport-style metal detectors at the entrance and identification badges for students, faculty, and staff members—to prevent another shooting such as what took place on February 14. The school already implemented heightened security measures Thursday ahead of the rules taking effect. Florida Gov. Rick Scott ordered eight highway patrol officers to provide security for the school after authorities arrested Nikolas Cruz’s brother, Zachary, Monday for allegedly trespassing on school grounds after he was told to stay away from the campus. The Broward County Sheriff’s Office also announced it arrested three high school students Tuesday—one for allegedly making threats via Snapchat and two for allegedly carrying knives—prompting Scott to offer assistance to Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel and Runcie in the form of state patrol officers. “Parents, students, and teachers have recently endured one of the worst tragedies in Florida history,” Gov. Scott said. “They must be assured that every necessary step is being taken to increase safety and ensure no unauthorized people are allowed on campus.” The patrol officers, along with Broward County deputies, will be on guard at every campus entry point and will remain there indefinitely. The school had been patrolled by one armed deputy and several unarmed guards before the massacre. Some students decried the “clear backpack” rule and other security measures as inefficient, saying the proposed measures will not stop gun violence. One student tweeted that the backpack rule would only make the school environment more like a prison. “s/o to America for making my school seem like jail now because legislators don’t have common sense gun reform on their agendas,” the student, a senior, tweeted. Other students expressed concerns about the school district invading students’ privacy and spending money to give students the backpacks. “I know having clear backpacks will help with security, but now all my privacy will be gone. I wish it didn’t come to this,” another Marjory Stoneman Douglas student tweeted. “Spending money on giving us clear backpacks is a joke,” another student wrote on Twitter.
  14. I enjoy the feel of the 147gr. Remington loads I tried; lots of punch.
