1 Good Morning Morons. Today is Saturday, October 15, 2016. On this day in 1878 the Edison Electric Light Company began operation. This company, founded by Thomas Edison, eventually became General Electric and it also spun off RCA.

2 The NYT and the MFM are pulling out all the stops bringing more women claiming Trump made inappropriate advances on them. Trump fires back calls the Times liars and is still threatening a lawsuit. I really don't think the "Bag Lady" has the respect that people gave it in earlier years. People have seen what liars they actually are.

No matter how much the MFM tries to hide the facts they do not like the truth has a way of trickling to the surface. That Boston thug who shot two cops responding to a domestic disturbance was a recent muzzie convert. Also it has been found that the original claim that he used an ugly rifle with the thingy that folds up was a lie. He used a shotgun so on that the MFM wasn't just hiding crap, they were lying.

I would get a Beretta .380 but with that and enough rounds to break her and the pistol in you are not going to have a lot left over from that $1,000. Personally for a small gun I prefer the older model 5 shot compact colt 45. But that may be a little much for her to handle. And may be tough to find. And if you do a good one would eat up all the $1,000.

25 What a scary time to be alive. Like I wondered on the ONT, it's as if the first thing students in journalism schools are taught on their first day goes as follows: "If you think your job is to report the facts objectively, you need to leave and find a new major. Your job will be to protect and serve Hillary".

Distrust of media bias has grown in recent years, but it needs to go beyond that. People need to realize how frightening this Orwellian/Pravda bullshit is.

40 Funny how the liberal mind works
Wife's friend is a libby, shillary supporter, gun hating, Trump hater, JEF lover.
She is also surviving because of government programs as after her divorce and lack of working she is about flat broke.
She needed her teeth worked on, so she was sent to a medicaid dentist that is about 25 miles away. When she pulled up, she saw a sign that they also worked on spanish speaking people. So she was scared and drove away.

Libbys are funny

Posted by: Bruce at October 15, 2016 06:39 AM (8ikIW)

41 thanks Vic ... if we could get average Americans to read through your links before voting, they'd be chanting "lock her up".

Instead they are wondering if billionaire Trump really wandered around "slumming it", going alone into places and groping women against their will. (and only this month have any come forward, except Michelle Fields and her arm rape ... thx MeAgain for trying to legitimize the liars)

So we have the MFM revealing themselves as co-conspirators in an attempted coup, pushing a known criminal into the highest office. Wikileaks has exposed criminal activity at the top ... the MSM gives it only enough time to tell listeners to ignore those revelations.

Even Bret Baier plays the moral equivalence game, saying "both candidates are going with scorched earth". But unsubstantiated attacks on Trump (DNC's standard tactic) really the same as solid evidence of corrupt Hillary? Of course not ... HRC has had her whole campaign revealed as a lie. Any one item in the Wikileaks long list would normally destroy a candidate, certainly if they were Republican.

44 >>>15. Clinton wanted to run against Donald Trump in 2016: The three Republican candidates Clinton's campaign thought they had the best chance of beating were Trump, Ben Carson, and Senator Ted Cruz.


Interesting, the three outsiders were thought the easiest to beat by team Hillary.

If and when the GOPe concern trolls bring this up here, remember, the goal isn't merely to defeat Hillary, it's to get someone in the WH who will actually make a difference, not merely elect Hillary-lite.

Avoid Taurus. QC is too spotty. I am a fan of the Kahr CW9. It's a soft shooting gun and I love mine. I say that if a woman can handle a .380, she can handle a 9mm. Maybe an Arcus in 9mm, but all I know is that it's Browning High Power like.

Meanwhile, back in Africa, there's a movement among back students to reject all science as racist and colonialism under the rubic #ScienceMustFall.

Know as "Fallists", this from a campus meeting:

The speaker gives as an example that Newton saw an apple fall, made up gravity, wrote down some equations, and now that is scientific truth imposed on the world forever.

The other pillar of her position is that in Africa there are practitioners of black magic who can summon a lightening bolt at their enemy. This is not explainable by "Western" science, and yet this is African knowledge, and therefore is an example of Western colonialism suppressing indigenous wisdom.

68 Re small carry pistols, the Beretta Pico (380 ACP) is under $300 at Cabela's. However, it looks to be designed to be so small and light that the controls are tricky to operate.

I'm not into revolvers because of they are a bit trickier to fire than semi autos, but they are definitely reliable.

There are a bunch of small 380 semi-autos from Kahr, Ruger, Sig, S&W, Bersa, Walther, etc. I think you should look at some video reviews and see what kind of action and operation they have. Some are hammer fired, some striker. Some double action on the first trigger pull, single afterwards and some are single action only.

The key thing will be which one can she operate comfortably. If you can live with single action and an external safety, the Sig P238 (not cheap) is exquisitely easy to fire and operate. Breakdown isn't too bad either (this can be an issue for some of the guns). You can also compare it to their P938 which has the same internals but is 9mm. It's just a bit harder to control than the 380 version.

But whatever you do, I'd recommend some classes and try renting some pistols at the range and see what works. You'll be surprised what issues crop up. Like the Springfield grip safety making it hard for some people to rack the slide. Or the fact that some women can't rack Glocks at all (even the baby 42 380 ACP).

With the unit cost of LRLAP ammo limiting procurement, you might think the guns could could use standard Army 155 mm shells for area bombardment and training.

82 Kudzu - get a cz52 or a makarov. Makarov is probably cheaper. It'll be well under budget, is a very good pistol, and you won't go broke learning to shoot.

Alternative is the bersa in .380. Also good and serviceable and cheap.

Even with some very optimistic assumptions about the US ship being able to defend against missiles and the effectiveness of her steath, she still can't hit the Russian as the distance closes, because of targeting limitation and time of flight for shells from the guns.

103 I like a revolver for a woman's carry for a couple of reasons. Fail to fire/eject is not something a woman, except those with strong hands and practice, can deal with easily in a crisis. With a revolver, just pull the trigger again if it doesn't fire the first time.

Also, there's no safety to remember how to operate and fumble with on a revolver. A hammerless Lady Smith is a real fine option imho. But I wouldn't reco one for a gal with small children. They love getting into mom's purse; a moment's inattention could be a disaster.

But in the camps none of this will matter. We can practice throwing rocks.

In a ship on ship surface action, the Zumwalt has no choice but to use guns.

The ship has no anti-ship missiles, and they can't be carried in the ship's VLS cells. Unless the Navy tack-welds some Harpoons to the deck, it's guns or nothing.

Avoid Taurus. QC is too spotty. I am a fan of the Kahr CW9. It's a
soft shooting gun and I love mine. I say that if a woman can handle a
.380, she can handle a 9mm. Maybe an Arcus in 9mm, but all I know is
that it's Browning High Power like.

As for sites, I use the search engines Wiki Arms, Ammo Seek, etc.

Posted by: Tilikum Killer Assault Whale at October 15, 2016 06:46 AM (hVdx9)






+1 for the CW9. It's my CCW gun, and fairly inexpensive at around $350ish street price. Despite the light weight and small size, it's surprisingly soft-shooting, and the DAO trigger is excellent.

One thing though. Kahr recommends a 200 round break-in period before depending on it. That's spot-on, in my experience. It needs to settle in to ensure proper reliability. Also, mine doesn't like Speer Gold Dots. At. All. Hangs up regularly with the GDs, which pisses me off because I've got a case of GDs that work beautifully in my CZ and High Power. But the Hornady Critical Defense or Critical Duty rounds feed in the Kahr like buttah, so that's what I'm using.

Both had hi cap and insane rates of fire, and you really had to be careful not to blow thru the mag.

143 I'm not convinced purse carry is that great an idea unless it's actually designed with a built-in holster and always worn cross-shoulder. It just seems way too likely that someone will grab or cut the purse and run off, and now have your gun. Plus fumbling in a purse for a gun seems like asking for trouble. Budget for a decent quick-draw purse or come up with a body carry option IMO.

Hog, my purse has a vertical zipper in the end of it. The gun pocket resides between two outer pockets. It's big enough to hold a SIG P226. The double strap of the purse runs through two solid brass O-rings. Strap mounts are sewn directly to the body. I carry it most times with the zipper in front (though I've been known to turn it around if it didn't want to answer questions about that zipper). Yank the zipper down, stick your hand in and either pull the gun out or fire through the other end of it.

Sixteen rounds, one in the chamber (forgot about that one earlier) and no safety. Pull the trigger and BANG!

My kinda gun.

155 teej -

get a Mitutoyo caliper.

you're righ on the no digital thing too - though I dislike them because of zero drifting, especially on repetitive measurements, your point on batteries is good too.

156 Re: gun for daughter. Follow the advice of posters who say let her try out guns at a range. Also Cabelas is having firearms weekend this weekend and the Well Armed Woman will be at every store today to talk women and give intro to pistol classes

157 Both wife and daughter had difficulty with the controls on semi auto pistols. Racking slide quickly, slide release were not functions quickly or easily performed. Both now carry Ruger LCR's. Daughters is 38 Spl and wife is 22 Mag. Simple, compact, and reliable. Shrouded hammer means you can carry all chambers full. Revolvers aren't my cup of tea (I carry a M&P Shield in 9mm) but you have to use what works for you.

Riiiiiight.

The quality of weapon is always based on it's level of mechanical complexity , the price tag and the amount of TACTICAL CRAP glued and screwed to it.


Always.

161 I just bought S&W shield in 9mm fpr my daughter. Our gun range will rent all their weapons of a single caliber all day for $10. That gives the prospective buyer a chance to really see what fits and shoots best. The $10 is applied to a purchase. I think a lot of places do that.
