EMT: 12/06/14 - Heading to the Gun Show Edition. [krakatoa]

Happy Saturday, early risers.

Dallas wasn't horrible. The weather sucked. The job took longer than it should have. I ended up staying an extra day I didn't need to playing email tag with people who apparently don't know the rules of the game.

But the hotel was nice. (Platinum Premiere for Marriott does have its perks.) And the Tom Ka Gai and Phở I enjoyed at the Indian & Vietnamese restaurants right next to the work site really hit the spot. And I got to catch the final episode of Foo Fighters's HBO series "Sonic Highways" -- if you love geeking out on local music scenes, I definitely recommend watching it.

Today is the big day for moving on from the Taurus TCP as a CCW. I've given it a lot of thought, read lots of reviews, and double checked the cash supply.

Depending on the prices today, I'm getting one of 2 pistols.

I'll fill you guys in on the final selection next week, after I've had a chance to either affirm or regret my choice at the range.

Good morning pixel people, raining but warm, 64, this AM. I'm heading out back to my bike barn to do some connector reconditioning on one of my XS1100's that 'suddenly' developed issues shortly after it arrived. Its all good though because I love to tinker with them.

33 .40 doesn't have .357 Sig's flat trajectory, so a 100 yard stop is extra incredible.

I've been carrying a P229 for a while, but Santa's convinced me to switch to a P224. Sig's DA/SA with a decocker isn't for everyone, but the Sig short reset triggers are pretty incredible.

37 From ABC

But soon intelligence reports came in that Somers and the other hostage had died of gunshot wounds from their captors, who shot them as operators from the U.S. Navy's SEAL Team Six bore down on the hostage site and killed AQAP fighters holding the freelance photojournalist, the counter-terrorism official told ABC News.

A defense official said that initial reports indicated Somers had been shot by his captors, but was still taken to the American amphibious ship USS Makin Island just offshore. It's unclear when exactly Somers died.

U.S. and Yemeni counter-terrorism forces had been inserted into the country by rotary aircraft and no American special operations forces were injured in the raid, the official said. Six AQAP fighters were killed.

My Remington R1 is solid and awesome. Function has been excellent so far (500 rnds). I love it. Of course it's a 1911, a proven design. They seem to have made a real effort at QC in the production of this line.


My 750 was returned when the gas block FELL OFF the thing at the range. Two spot welds, and they failed. Remington returned my purchase price.


I won't be looking at Remington for new purchases, but I can't deny the R1 is an awesome gun. I love it.

"The scientists say that nothing, not even light, can escape a black hole. Black holes, you have competition."

"I think CERN might be interested. Also the CDC, the EPA, and FEMA."

"I'm a cooper, Jim, not a miracle worker."

"This thing has more stretch marks than Octomom."

They start talking about Baylor and don't even consider that they have a game today.
I don't know if Britz will be able to play. If not, that will hurt against a team like Baylor.
Still, it's not like it's Iowa St @ TCU.
Baylor is playing a team who, if they win, will share the Big 12 title. And have a legitimate case to be in the playoff,,, given a few key losses today of course.

Indeed, like I said the 750 I had was terrible.


The R51 looked great on paper and I was hoping to look at that as my next purchase but they really screwed that one up also.


Sorry, as much as I love the R1, Remington is off my list period.

I can leave SJWs in the dust....assuming that their lazy goblin butts are even out in this weather. More to the point, I will be in Warren County, Butler County, and (northern) Hamilton County today along the Great Miami, where the citizens mostly vote GOP and the police know the proper way to administer a chokehold, but choose not to because a SW .357 or 9mm para slug results in less paperwork.

The main trouble as of this past week are the trailer park hobos. Not at all far from CPT Charles me a single-wide hobo Awalked into the domicile of another single-wide hobo B and set B's pants on fire while B was wearing them.

When I sighted it in I was putting all of the shots in the 9 ring at 100 yards so I was happy with it. Of course then Range Partner, who regularly shoots at 300 yards, put a full mag (5 rds) in the 10 and pronounced it "not bad" so like I said, it might just be me. I'm thinking about putting a Boyds wooden stock on it just because I love the looks of walnut and blue steel, but the synthetic stock definitely is lighter.

112 The policeman story reminds me of something. Decades ago, I was at the range with a friend who was a policeman, rest his soul, and at one point he pulled his backup gun, a .38 detective snubby, and took one shot at a milk jug at 100 yards. Boom! The thing just jumps up to the amazement of all. He just put the gun back in his pocket and didn't say a word.

Later I was talking to him and he laughed and said he had no idea where the bullet was going to go but didn't want everyone else to know that.

Far as I'm concerned the best carry gun is the one that fits your hand.

Never mind who makes it, how it feels to shoot is the prime criteria.

Unless that is right you are looking at a lot of disappointment.

As mentioned several times here, my carry piece is the 1911A1--it fits my hand like no other pistol or revolver ever has. Even to the milspec grips.

126 Krak, if the budget is substantial, I fully recommend any of the commander size 1911 Kimbers. The wife carries a raptor and I carry an ultra carry II.

Had to change out the grips for the hogue grip that has rubber going around the back of the grip. It's a lot more comfortable to shoot that way, and easier to hold.

Wife also sometimes carries a 9mm XD with 3" barrel and likes it a lot also.

Had bad luck and really don't recommend james bond's gun. actually walther ppk-s ... nothing but trouble as it won't feed more than two or three bullets in a row. Great size and light, but a little light in stopping power as 380.

I don't carry out in the country, but feel naked without it in the city (Houston).

134 Good luck on your new pistol purchase.

Re: the Remington 700 has so many of the things made since the 1960's that it is entirely possible to get a lemon. Even worse, many have been amateur gunsmithed, not cleaned regularly, or otherwise buggered up. As the partnership (used to be called Cerebus) that owns the Freedom Group including Remington is desperate to sell it off--they made the recall.

The past controversy is over the Walker trigger with a good description of the issues in http://tinyurl.com/phwsq5y
Remington went its own way and departed from the old Mauser type triggers that were common for bolt actions.

Read the story about the new Pro Mark triggers being recalled--it had a NC lawsuit where "Thar was walking by the home of the rifle's owner when he was cleaning it, and the gun went off. " THAT IS NOT THE WAY TO CLEAN A GUN WITH A ROUND IN THE CHAMBER. Saw this claim by the individual who shot it repeatedly--he essentially and the family of the deceased is blaming Remington for the individual's idiocy.

I have spent time rebuilding old military bolt actions for a hobby for a while--I have seen attempts on these old triggers to alter the trigger and/or sear surfaces can result in accidental discharge. Even Mauser type triggers can fire unexpectedly if the trigger and sear surfaces are improperly stoned (so called hair trigger) from any sort of impact. Even safeties that cam the firing pin back can fail if one of the cocking piece lugs snap (this is hardened steel which can make it brittle over time).

Floating firing pin designs such as the AR 15 and most shotguns can discharge from momentum such as a fall or a car crash even. Thus, every gun is to be considered loaded, when carrying out administrative purposes such as cleaning, ensure that the gun is pointed at a backstop sufficient to stop a bullet, ALWAYS open the chamber and check for a round--I insert a pinkie to feel and make it a habit to even check revolver cylinders when opened by touch as well as sight.

Never mechanically monkey with a trigger system unless you are damn sure of what you are doing and that you test your work afterwards trying to make the system fail. A two stage military trigger is there for a purpose--trying to make it a one stage is not a good idea. If you must, buy an aftermarket one-stage trigger which are generally available from the likes of Jewell, Timney, etc. Generally, leave them alone too.

Your trigger should not push off, go off when you let it drop on its butt, hit it with an open palm on the side, etc. Lever guns should not have the hammer push off in full or half cock. Know your rifles and even "gasp" take it apart for cleaning from time to time. Gunk and other stuff can make a safe gun unsafe.

No rant at all - this is exactly the trigger I was asking about above. Thus my 308 sporting rifle has a trigger that breaks much like the 1911 sa trigger, and I just feel this is a better trigger for accuracy, obviously just my opinion of course.
And this isn't a battle rifle, or any sort of assault rifle; I don't plan on assaulting anything with it, of course. Nor would I want to, the thing weighs a ton!
But I would love to see others opinions on this choice...

The first manned Orion flight is currently scheduled for 2022, assuming that the SLS rocket gets built. That's eight years from the first test flight to the first manned flight. In the 1960s we went from a suborbital Mercury flight to a moon landing in eight years.

Posted by: Ian S. at December 06, 2014 08:40 AM (OMULS)

And of course, as of this morning, he hasn't been identified. 44 years old from Saginaw. Passengers reported he had been acting "strangely", so they reported it to the conductor. The train employees radioed Chicago(where they had originated from) and Chicago recommended they stop at the next crossing and police were alerted. So when they pulled into Niles, MI, Mr. Passenger argued with the conductor, pulled out a knife, stabbed him , then randomly began stabbing passengers. I"ve read two different reports, one was the passengers subdued him and one was the police put him on the floor.

By the way, Amtrak has been granted permission to increase train speed on this route to max.100mph. Of course, they need to do some upgrades first, but apparently the train hits those speeds periodically now.

Joy.

I first linked the Guardian article there yesterday, and Rand later updated his post with a quote from it.

My favorite comment was from wodun, who I have seen commenting here occasionally:

The disconnect is that while you were unexcited for this launch due to your knowledge of what is really going on, the average uninformed person was really excited by it because of their ignorance of what is really going on. NASA is grubering people on this and it may pay off in the short term but if/when the program fails, there will be some people who remember NASA's claims and it will damage support for the agency.

"NASA is grubering people on this". That was brilliant.
