    Why holy shit? It's a little goofy for sure but not unsafe. Tons of non-military 320s have no safety at all, and people have been carrying fully-cocked striker pistols with no manual safety for a...

    With regards to Apex, I think you are reading a little too much into marketing content intended to sell you funny-colored triggers.

    However, I think it does make a pretty reasonable point:...

    Sand the Operator 2's right panel only. Done.

    I think the Operator 2 is noticeably better than the 1. I carry the golf-ball pattern IWB and with a lightly sanded right panel. It's generally fine.

    Without saying too much, I hope, it is a fantastic line even when it's not the opening. Even if you're not a King fan, this series is special enough to excuse some odd middle segments.

    When I very very briefly worked in the energy industry, there was a widespread belief that the truck drivers that served this industry did this intentionally as some sort of.... I don't know. It may...

    Man, this resonates. I've long thought about trying to switch to something where I felt like I was doing something important. But big machine pays me a lot of money to work 40 hour weeks. That's so...

    The Vang Comp people are wonderful. If memory serves, they're within walking distance of several world-class 1911 smiths... and if they do 1911 work, that's probably who I'd prefer to touch it.

    Are there any mystery/police series that are more.... reasonable, or realistic?

    I've really enjoyed the Bosch novels, which started off not-that-convincing, but become more and more believable as...

    This is really unbelievable. Today, Trump and Pence announced a “Cease Fire” had been reached, that gave the Turks their intended goal in full.

    Which was “negotiated” on behalf of the former ally...

    The only home invasion that ever happened in my small town used headlights fully illuminated and cell-phone flashlights. There's no way to navigate a rural night otherwise.

    I believe it was originally supposed to simulate incoming fire, back before IDPA had cornered the "we're tactical, really!" ruleset.

    I think Area 7 had one a few years ago, but I only saw it in...

    It’s interesting stuff in that there is no action dishonorable enough that people won’t attempt to justify it.

    I just want it to be really clear that, as far as we know, we didn't fold when Turkey moved overwhelming force to threaten small special forces units. This wasn't Trump making a hard choice not to...

    Perhaps we should not simply move our forces to allow a dictator to kill them freely and approve of him on Twitter.

    This is a stain on our national honor and the personal honor of everyone who pretends otherwise. We were happy to call them allies when they were useful but as soon as a dictator made a phone call,...

    I can't read the WSJ article, so maybe it explains this away somehow, but the remainder of the sentence it opens with is:

    This is sad. The owner (foundation) of this plane used to be my neighbor, and I'd been meaning to take a ride sometime. I assume the occupants were historical enthusiasts and in our community.

    Some of the testimony seemed to indicate the victim was seated or cowering when shot. Then Guyger took the stand and the prosecutor tore her up on cross such that it seemed like she'd decided to...
