  1. Any collectors interested in Stoeger .22 CB Caps or 6mm Blanks?

    My friend found these cleaning out his uncle's place. They look older, not sure if they have any value. Figured I'd post here and see if there was any interest.
  2. DCF protects children from guns and.....nothing else

    Last week I was unfortunate enough to have the pleasure of witnessing a DCF home safety inspection. An employee of mine was trying to get last minute custody of his grandson. He asked me to be there because they wanted character witnesses for him and his wife and he had misinformation that he...
  3. Is it common practice to tip instructors?

  4. Quick question, what would you officers like to eat?

    Some friends of mine want to do something special for the officers in our town. They want to bring in a meal/snack for each shift. Most likely pizzas for the day and evening shifts and coffee, donuts and bagels for the over night shift since there aren't any all night pizza shops around. So...
  5. Bad box of Federal 9mm Aluminum Case?

    I bought some of this the other day and figured I'd give it a try. After finishing up with my 10/22 yesterday I was too lazy to walk the 100 yards and move my target so I loaded a few mags for my P226 with this federal ammo. When I finished my second magazine a guy that was watching me came...
  6. Town police log, daily ltc info?

    I was going through my town police log looking for info about an incident on my street and noticed that every day around the same time there is the following entry: 1007 ISSUE FIREARMS LICENSE INFORMATION RECORDED Anyone know what that means? I assume that its just a daily procedure to record...

    Searched but couldn't find anything about this. I just received this email from my daughters school: Public Service Information on Asking Saves Kids Day - June 21st In America, one out of three homes with children has a gun, many kept unlocked or loaded. Every year thousands of kids are...
  8. Nephew tried to grab my gun!

    I was at a family get together today and when I was hugging my nephew goodbye he tried to grab my gun! I could feel his arm keep bumping it but all of a sudden I could feel him trying to lift it out. I immediately put my strong hand over his hand on the gun and grabbed his arm with my left...

  11. Anyone have a P226 for their EDC?

    I have been wanting to upgrade my EDC for a while now for something with more capacity. Currently I carry a Ruger SR9c. I thought I had made up my mind on a Glock 19, pref. 3rd gen. That was until I shot a Sig P226 and fell in love. Since it will be my EDC it has to be brand new so I figure...
  12. My wife made me finally go Green!

    Earlier tonight I'm online here reading a few threads and my wife comes over to see what I'm doing. She asks why it doesn't say that I'm a member. I tell her I just haven't gotten around to it. She rolls her eyes, grabs the mouse and a couple minutes later I'm finally green! This past Tuesday...
  13. How long are Ltc's issued for?

    I have been searching and can't find what I'm looking for. The Massachusetts state website says Ltc's are good for 6 years. I got mine last year and it is good for 5 years. Now my town website says they issue them for 4 years. I thought it was a standard time period for the whole state, can...
  14. Zenk's going out of business

    Stopped by Zenk's yesterday for my weekly ammo check and he told me he was going out of business. Personally I think most of his stuff is over priced but maybe you'll be able to get a good deal on something. He said so far he can't find anyone to take the business over and he had someone coming...
  15. Even ZENKS has no ammo!!! WTH!!!

    Just stopped by ZENKS in Northbridge thinking I'd be able to find some 9mm ammo. I figured since it a small not well known store he must have at least a little, nope all he had was maybe 8 boxes of 380 and that was it! He said his supplier is out and can't even give him an idea of when he'll...
  16. Adjusting Old Faithful Holster

    I just bought my first Old Faithful Holster, stage 3 so I'm going to assemble it tonight. To put it together you hammer threaded clips into the leather through the backside and screw the kydex and belt lips on from the front. There are 3 postitions for ride height. My question is how hard is...
  17. My first "gun fight"

    So I bought my first gun about a month ago and yesterday I brought home my second. I l knew my wife would probably disapprove so I brought her something too. I collect a lot of scrap steel, copper and wire at work and I've been saving it for a while. I cashed it in yesterday, bought myself a...
  18. Obama ammo tax

    Sorry if this is a dupe did a quick search and googled with no definite answer. Just leaving Walmart after getting some ammo. While I'm waiting for some one to open the cabinet another guy starts talking to me telling me to stock up now because Obama is putting a 400% tax on all ammo and...
  19. When is someone ready to carry?

    I did a quick search and couldn't find this topic discussed so here it goes. Let's say a person who had little to zero experience with guns takes the basic firearms safety course and gets issued an unrestricted ltc-a. This person buys a pistol an wants to carry. I'd like to see what...
  20. Where to go.......?

    Alright, after the most recent episode of family drama bs my wife agrees with me that it's time to move! The only problem is we can't agree where. I say north, she says south like Tenn. she's country at heart. Anyone from around there, how is it? It has to be better than Mass. right? Or should...
