Here's a huge test to your commitment to the 2nd amendment.

The guy in Orlando was on the terror watch list, but was taken off due to a lack of connection to Isis. He was an American citizen. He was not a felon. Based on all of that, if you were in charge at NICS, and could go back in time to when he purchased his weapons, would you have allowed the transfer of the weapon?

I say yes, which leaves a bit of a pit in my stomach. Freedom is sometimes really messy.

+J.G. Hovey​ both the gun laws and the surveillance state are already more restrictive and intrusive than I am comfortable with. We're already being monitored like criminals, and the second amendment has already been neutered by the NFA.

So a question for all the armchair political strategists out there.

Which candidate, and what rhetoric would be necessary, to pull in disaffected Bernie Sanders voters?

The conservatives are a small step away from our platform, so that shouldn't be too hard. But without the Bernie voters we'll accomplish nothing more than splitting the freedom vote.

What can we do as a party to pull the Bernie voters in, and actually give us a chance of getting some big numbers this year?

From what I have seen of Bernie supporters comments on Google+ and on Reddit, Gary Johnson is already a second choice among some of them. Hence why Gary Johnson is pulling slightly more in polling from Democrats. The issues that attract them are his stances in regards to war, drug policy and a few other civil libertarian issues that they feel Johnson would better represent than Hillary.

Guns & Carry Laws  - 
 
DISCLAIMER: I am not a lawyer, and nothing I post should be used as legal advice. Do your own research. If you get your legal firearm advice from some random guy online, you're just asking for trouble


So I got to thinking about concealed carry reciprocity with my Colorado cwp, and realized that some states don't recognize my permit, but still allow open carry without a permit.

After doing a quick bit of research, I came up with this table. Green States are ones that accept the CO permit, Yellows are ones I would have to carry open to visit, and the reds are the "no go zones"

Obviously is only applicable to my state, but a person could do the same kind of thing with their own state. Neat.

This question is for anybody who owns or has shot one of those Rossi ranch hands (mares leg lever action pistol)

Given the recent ATF letter about shouldering a sig brace, this question assumes all legal paperwork, tax stamps, and licences are in place.

How easy is it to shoot a mares leg from the shoulder? Doable? Or does the short "stock" make it unusable as an sbr?

I don't think you want the receiver that close to your face.

Realistically you can't shoot it shouldered there just isn't enough length in the grip.....

I need some advice. My wife can't decide on her next gun. She's already got a walther CCP for her concealed weapon, and now she wants to get a range toy/bedside pistol. She's narrowed it down to these two, but can't decide. Let me know what influenced your choice in the comments.

Yelling fire in a theater...

I'm so sick of hearing anti gunners say "rights aren't unlimited. You have free speech but you can't yell fire in a theater." As a way to say that we shouldn't be allowed to have (insert gun or gun related item here)

Here's how the "fire in a theater" argument works. You can't yell fire in a theater, because doing so will cause a riot, and your speech will directly involved the death or injury of another human being. However, merely being in a theater, and being aware of where the fire extinguishers are will not cause that effect, and is not illegal.

Likewise, using a firearm to threaten, hurt or kill another human being is not protected, but merely owning a (insert scary sounding thing here) will not cause harm to another human being.

The "fire in a theater" argument was meant to show how our rights end where another person's begin. Not as a way to justify stripping away rights to make people feel good.

Any other illogical anti gun arguments you'd like to dismantle?

Actor kurt russel standing up for gun Rights.

It's nice to see Hollywood actors on our side for a change. Any other celebrities you can think of who actually stand up for the right to defend one's self?
During an interview with the Daily Mail, Kurt Russell affirmed the he owned guns and said that "now is not a good time to lay" them down.

Was planning on taking a trip up to Cheyenne to get some 30 round ar mags today, but the weather decided otherwise.

Any Colorado members know of any shops in northern Colorado that sell 30 round repair kits or cleaning kits?

Quick poll. Which do you prefer. Explain why in comments.

PS, I'm only talking primary fire starters, not flint strikers and rubbing sticks together ;)

Pocket Dump  - 
 
Updated pocket dump, have added and changed a few things since my last one.

New items include mini mag flashlight, Casio watch with built in compass, Kershaw folder with 1/4" bit attachments, gp100, and a sharpener.

Still need to find a convenient way to add cordage. Already have 2 things on my wrist, and my keychain is already huge

+JD McCay A Safariland type speed strip is very easy to pack. Running dry is never pleasant, even if the troubles are over... you will still feel better with your wheel gun topped off. Besides it looks so cool to see a revolver shooter parallel a auto shooter tactically. C'mon, try it you'll like it!!!

If you could only pick one item from your edc to carry from now until forever, which would it be and why?

P.S. wallets and keys don't count. I know having them is important, but that makes for a boring thread.

Just went in for the first time after their remodel. They got rid of the salad bar, which was always gross, and the place looks really nice.

Quite possibly some of the best beer I've ever had. Be prepared to pay a little more, but it's worth it.

Went there to use the car wash and vacuum out my car. When the vacuum took my quarters without turning on, I went inside to use the ATM and get some more. The lady behind the counter refunded my quarters without me even having to ask. Great gas station, and they have my business now, even if there are cheaper places around.

Got that great hometown feel you would expect from an old-style general store. Propane prices are one of the cheapest around, too.

Got my jeep washed there. Didn't have enough money to do the full detail, so I can't comment on that. But the wash was great, fast, and thorough.
