  1. Fair enough, but having seen enough people do it...

    Fair enough, but having seen enough people do it at matches, what's difficult about flag it, muzzle up, walk that way to the safety table and bag it there? Edit: Or do you mean she somehow swept you...

    How did she have the opportunity to DQ for something else *after* sweeping you? She should have been DQed right then.

    Nor should you. That was absurdly offensive, and I can only imagine that it made every LEO's job harder.

    Admittedly this is a simplistic and absolutist argument, but the 2nd amendment is federal law, and it explicitly states that bearing arms is lawful.
  5. "Other lawful purposes" seems like it would be...

    "Other lawful purposes" seems like it would be broad enough to cover pretty much any non-criminal conduct. I am not a lawyer, but given that language, I have a hard time understanding how civilian...

    I will be interested to know what circumstances the security guard thought justified his actions. The deputy would seem to have shown a LOT of restraint; at least, I would assume that having a gun...

    I absolutely get that it's technically challenging and skill building, but I feel like it would become a mental slog very quickly for me, given that a significant part of what I enjoy about USPSA is...

    On the outside looking in, I'm confused that it doesn't operate that way. Wouldn't people get extremely bored extremely quickly otherwise?

    That's a spicy meatball! Hotter loads = better for taking pins off the table?

    Set it up as multiples of his current annual salary. ;)

    That's at least a semi-familiar concept. I wasn't clear on the guns in question having already been machine guns at one point - I thought we were talking about purely semi-auto MP5s somehow being...

    That's also true of pretty much any AR-15, and they're not considered to be machine guns unless the full-auto parts are actually present - why is/was the MP5 any different?

    No disagreement there. There are several guns I'd like to own but do not. If it becomes politically likely to be problematic to purchase one or more of them (several of my wants use mags > 10 rounds...

    2nd coming of Diane Feinstein, and the first one hasn't even expired yet... :p

    Admittedly kind of off topic for this thread, but how much experimenting has been done with slower powders in 16" PCCs? I imagine that N320 or Titegroup is completely done burning in the first few...

    Fair enough; I was thinking in terms of clearing it so that if some less reputable individual shows up and overpowers the well-meaning finder of the gun, it at least doesn't start out loaded, but...

    Supposing a person found such a rifle, would calling 911 be appropriate? I mean, it's not *exactly* an emergency if a responsible, non-criminal person familiar with guns who could handle it safely...

    I'm well aware of that - I shoot my own reloads nearly exclusively in USPSA, but if I lived in NV and wanted to go to a few matches/year in CA, it would be a solution for that scenario. That said,...
  19. Can out of state competitors be *given* ammo...

    Can out of state competitors be *given* ammo while in CA? Like, suppose a match in CA had an alternate entry fee that came with enough ammo to shoot the match - would that get around the problem?

    I'm not really a little dog fan either, though I draw the smallness line more at corgis than Sheba Inus. Probably the funniest dog experience I've ever had involved a little dog. I forget the...

    No disagreement there. Making mods to a gun willy-nilly is bad ju-ju, as is reloading without understanding deeply what you're doing and having careful attention to detail and/or skimping on QA/QC...

    A friend of mine's USPSA Limited gun is a .40 XD of some sort. He has literally worn out a few magazine tubes over time due to dropping them on concrete, etc., but to my knowledge it hasn't given him...

    I'm torn. On the one hand, it's pretty creative, it looks cool, and the companion cube with it just takes me straight back to "the cake is a lie." On the other, guns probably shouldn't look like...

    Ok, that ad is actually pretty hilarious. Definitely put a smile on my face. Probably my favorite Porsche ad is one I saw in Car and Driver sometime in the late '90s. It had a motion blurred 993TT...

    Given the price of a new 911, Porsche should be ashamed if they ever *don't* top JD Power IQS. I mean, don't get me wrong, a 911 has been my [probably unachievable] dream car for a long time, but...
