  1. Amazon "Smile" and Comm2A

    If you go to smile.amazon.com, you can set it to donate .5% of any order to a charity of your choice (from a list). Comm2A is on there, so your gratuitous online purchases can go to a good cause.
  2. Non-Resident with guns in Ohio

    Hey everybody, My friend is starting grad school in Ohio, next week. He's a resident of Pennsylvania, and will be retaining his PA residency during the duration of the grad program. What are the odds of him getting an Ohio non-res CCW permit? What (if any) castle doctrine does Ohio have...
  3. How long after Utah CCW Class...

    can I still apply? I took it a while ago (last summer, I think), and haven't gotten around to applying. I need to get off my butt and get that in.
  4. Ticks from the range

    Hey guys, make sure you check yourselves over really good after a day out at the range (or outside). I was at WSC for about an hour today, pulled 2 ticks off myself when I got home. Speaking from experience...avoid Lyme Disease, it suuuuucks
  5. Tactical Gun Lights from the '20s

    http://www.life.com/gallery/49751/in-praise-of-clever-crazy-patents#index/4 That's an idea so crazy, it might just work!
  6. Kydex/Plastic holster for S&W 659

    Does anyone know of an IDPA legal kydex or plastic OWB holster for an S&W 659? I've been searching around, but all I can find is leather. Failing that, will any of the 5609, 59, etc holster fit it, if I can find one in kydex? Thanks!
  7. Tell me about .22 Bullseye

    So, there's a bunch of clubs in my area that do a .22 bullseye league (Littleton, Westford, etc). What sort of courses of fire do these matches do? I've looked around, most of the bullseye info I can find online is for .45/.22/othercenterfire. What sort of skill level do they expect at these...
  8. ESS ICE Rx Shooting Glasses

    Has anyone used these? I feel like I should be getting out there with something a bit more than my (polycarbonate lensed) regular glasses. I like that you can interchange the lenses for different colors, and that they have the thin, wire framed Rx inserts. Any opinions/experience?
  9. Friggen Oprah..

    Is on the TV discussing how simple it is to buy a gun in a lot of states, and how that is horrible...[puke] Probably a rerun. I hate TV.
  10. 1000th Post Karma! Go Green on my dime!

    Well, it's been a little over a year since I first went green. This'll be my 1000th, post, so it's time to give back to this great forum some! I'm gonna give away 2 Green memberships to NES. Drawing will be done on 8/9/10, with the assistance of random.org. I'd prefer the memberships go to...
  11. Teenage Sisters Who Hunt

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1299569/Pictured-The-teenage-sisters-hunt-animals-fun.html Two girls who were hunting down Dangerous Game since they were young. The article puts them in a REALLY bad light, and the comments are the usual UK drivel. Smearing the blood of...
  12. Ejector dings on brass

    While I am not yet reloading, I've started hoarding my brass for when I actually get around to starting to reload. While collecting my .45ACP brass today (first time I've gotten around to picking it up), I noticed there is a distinct mark on the case head. It appears the ejector is giving the...
  13. Lefties, Revolvers and Speedloaders

    I was wondering if there are any lefties out there who shoot revolvers, and if they had some sort of "efficient" method of getting the rounds into the gun. The only thing I can think of is to transfer the gun to my right hand, and then pop open the cylinder right handed and then eject the rounds...
  14. Sig Handgun 102 vs 103

    I'm looking to take a course at the Sig Academy. I'm trying to figure out if the 102 handgun course, or the 103 course, would be better for me. A lot of the course objectives seem to be the same. I've taken the GOAL intro handgun course, and will be taking the GOAL IDPA course come April. If...
  15. A Little "Green" For Christmas - WINNER LTCRN!

    Hi Folks! In the spirit of all the Christmas Karma winding up in the Member's Forum, I figured I'd offer one myself. Call in, and I'll pick a random person to sponsor for a 1 year Green Membership to NES. Used to be Green and miss it? Want to be Green? You're all welcome to take a crack at...
  16. Not another MkIII assembly problem...

    Okay, I was really trying to avoid this, and I did search, but it seems that every person who tries this has a different problem. Against all common wisdom, I field stripped my Ruger Mark III. I'm glad I did, since there was all sorts of gunk from manufacturing in there (I assume...doesn't...
  17. New Gun Jitters

    So, I bought my second gun last Friday (luckily the store wasn't experiencing any Black Friday insanity), a shiny new Ruger MkIII Target. I've got the gun, several hundred rounds of ammo, but tomorrow is the first day I'll have a chance to get to the range and shoot it. It's killing me! I want...
  18. How To Dry Fire

    Now, before you go and jump on me and say "make sure it ain't loaded, cock the gun and squeeze the trigger" - that's not quite what I mean. I tried a search, but "how" and "to" are too ambiguous and were removed, so it just searched for "dry fire" and got about 1345 million hits. I like...
  19. Pro-Carry Pamphlets

    http://forum.pafoa.org/concealed-open-carry-121/69282-i-saw-man-gun-handout-ready-printing.html Probably would be impossible to find a place in the lovely land of Massachusetts to put these, but a Mass version shouldn't be that hard. Just thought I'd share a find.
  20. Mass Compliant Commander-sized 1911s

    Since my LTC application is stewing at the PD, I'm looking more and more into what my first gun will be. Now, obviously, the moment I walk into the store my careful planning will go out the window, but at least I'll have an idea. High on my short-list is a commander sized 1911. Are there any...
