  1. Reflex Sights vs. Laser Sights on Defensive Pistols

    Carry Weapons
    Folks, More and more sources are producing Reflex sight equipped pistols. Lasers are available in a myriad of options. I did a search and the newest discussion was a year old I decided to open another. Is a sighting system a good idea? One opinion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RP8Yhj12yKo...
  2. The AR as a viable HD weapon?

    Firearms Chat
    So, I'm doing some planning for my 2016 "acquisitions." First on the list is an AR, since I have several handguns and a 12G (although I would like to get a real JM-PRO at some point). I'm thinking of an LE6920 (5.56/.223). I may buy it stripped of "furniture" so I can put on my own adjustable...

    I live in Kendale Lakes, Miami in a gated community where we have a roving golfcart jockey only at night. I'm retired, so I was home and standing in the kitchen close to front door when I overheard two or more men out in the corridor. Some note of urgency in their voices made me stand still...
  6. Close call last night! Need some advice

    Defensive Scenarios
    I have moved in with my grandmother who lives by herself and has two extra bedrooms, this way I can lower my overhead while I look for a home to buy. Last Saturday we had an attempted break in. My grandmother discovered this when she went to the back porch on Sunday morning. A chair was placed...
  7. Pushing the Castle Doctrine

    In The News (Good & Bad)
    Might make it hard to prosecute the homeowner when the mayor sticks up for him. He makes a good point, though the guy may have technically broke the law; the story makes it seem as if they were leaving after all and the fight ended up out in the street. Perhaps he can testify that he feared they...

    Defensive Scenarios
    My wife would in no way open the door before I gave the go-ahead. Whether it was late or not. Just glad BG got his and not the guy's gf. Thoughts? Bradenton man shoots intruder, frees girlfriend Halle Stockton Published: Thursday, December 18, 2008 at 1:42 p.m. Last Modified: Thursday...
