Re: Buying used via FFL transfer

I can understand that some people might worry that they would sell a gun to a Bad Person who misused it, and they would have legal liability, or at least guilt, about selling the gun to that person. Sort of like selling your car on Craigslist, and then the buyer uses that car to run over a bunch of ...

Re: Church shooting in Alabama

Oh great, just what we need: Smith lives near Cahaba Heights and police blocked off his roadway for much of Friday afternoon while they carried out a search warrant at his Sicard Hollow home. Public records show Smith is an ATF licensed firearms dealer , with a business called Original Magazines 2 o...

I found this:

Looks like .308 AP went all the way through an AR500 plate.

Re: Useful knowledge

I swear when I clicked on the link the first time I got a Gabe Suarez article about shooting for the head when the BG was wearing body armor. Maybe it was something Ellifritz linked to, or maybe I got my links confused. Anyway, Ellifritz is prolific, has interesting guest columns, and appears to do ...

Re: Alaskan cruise

Just looked at the list of verboten items. - Guns - Pepper spray - Stun guns - Knives with blade longer than four inches Well OK then. The blade on my Spyderco EDC knife measures 3.75 inches. We'll see how that goes. One friend recommended taking a knife from the restaurant before getting off the bo...

But on gun rights, we can't count on Manchin and Sinema to save the day, and there are some Republicans who will gladly betray us.

Re: Changing AR15 Purchase Age to 21

I am opposed to background checks. They have only been around since -what? 1985? How did the Republic manage to survive for over 200 years without background checks? The purpose of the "Brady Law" was to reduce crime. As Dr. Phil says, "How's that working for you?" I am opposed t...

Re: Changing AR15 Purchase Age to 21

Would it reduce or mitigate school shootings or mass shootings in any way? Reduce the number of occurrences? Reduce the body count/morbidity count? No. Would it infringe on people's rights? Yes. It might only be a "little" infringement, but the word "fringe" means "around th...

Re: Alaskan cruise

We went in 2007 on Norwegian and there were metal detectors at the security check points prior to boarding. They were also used when we came back from day excursions when re-boarding. All Alaskan Cruise lines have to dock in Canada at least once because no cruise ships except those that service the...

Alaskan cruise

Very specific question:
IF you, personally, have been on an Alaskan cruise recently, were there metal detectors or wands or patdowns to prevent carrying weapons aboard?
Thank you.
