    Not as good as yours!

    Why did you delete the pic of your new gun?

    Re: Everything Guns (Part 2)

    Filed the BATFE paperwork yesterday to own this gem of a suppressor.

    I recently took a low light home defense class and the instructor sold me me on the notion that if you're going to use a handgun for home defense, you should also use a suppressor.

    Having fired a gun indoors without hearing protection, it's the one thing that's always concerned me if I ever needed to defend the house. It's LOUD. Distracting loud.

    I prefer the combination over the biometric.

    I've always thought about that as well. My hearing would be the least of my worries int that situation, but if I could prevent before hand. I'm going to look into this.

    It's a worry in the sense it may prevent you from pulling the trigger a second time.

    Smart. Shooting at a range is fine, but classes like this really do a better job at a real world level.

    We are about to get open carry in TX so I've been looking into classes for gun retention and drawing from a retention holster.

    Everything Guns (Part 2)

    Check out this video of a self defense shooting in Brazil ....

    If you have a garage as I do, this is a very vulnerable area of personal protection. Keep your head on a swivel when you're getting home.

    I think every gun owner should have that for home defense. Quick easy access and you can keep it loaded. really good idea.

    wrong hombre.

    not only was he clearly expecting some sort of attack to react so quickly... he had video surveillance set up on top of it. my spanish is rusty, anybody know the gist of the article? id like to know if he had issues prior.

    your point about garages is a good one. most people are busy getting their shit or thinking about something else to even bother watching the door close. Which is why im curious how this guy was so on point.

    Re: Everything Guns (Part 2)

    Why is it clear he was expecting an attack? If you ever take a close quarters combat class, defensive pistol class, etc, this is exactly what they train you on -- situational awareness, quick draw, point shooting, securing the scene, etc.

    This was an off duty Brazilian police officer who was being car jacked while his wife was in the car. If you'll notice, the passenger door opens first. I'd bet once he noticed his garage door was opening back up, he saw the intruder and pulled his weapon.
