Re: An interesting look at "Stopping Power"

I think you are right- it boils down to shot placement. AND.....I am not afraid to carry a 380.

Re: Donald Trump says he is poised to impose 'powerful sanctions' on Turkey

I believe he can- and will- Saw this on another forum- this does not necessarily address our relations with Turkey- but you get the picture of our relations with other countries in general. https://www.goldismoney2.com/threads/imf-international-monetary-fund-and-trump-this-is-not-only-excellent-it-i...

Re: EVERYONE PLEASE READ

Personally, I believe the donation route will work.
However, it may not work on "automatic'- you probably should announce a donation drive on occasion- like maybe twice a year, or even once per quarter.

Re: Finally happened... My first Squib

I've had one. It was many years o ago- I had forgotten about it. I knew something was wrong right away- it did not eject the casing. Don't remember which gun or what ammo now? Oh well....senility works.

Re: Range Trip with the Splatterburst Target Stand and ProMags

Looks good to me.
That's pretty darn good shooting for drawing and shooting fast. I would struggle to do that good even with slow fire.
But I do have an excuse....I'm antique.

Re: New member from North Georgia

Welcome to the club bigshoe83..... that SFX seems to be quiet popular. I don't have that one- have a few of the smaller ones- DA, Elite, and C-100.
Perhaps one of these smart guys on this forum could run us a poll to see how many SFX's and other guns are out there?
