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

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?

+JD McCay there have been at least one charged with possession so far. And the sheriffs don't make charging decisions, DAs do.

Do you have a "truck gun" ie a gun you keep in your vehicle other than your every day carry?

If so, what is your truck gun, and why? Does where you live play in to your decision?

A truck gun can be a pistol as well. Anything above a .38 ! It needs to be enough to pierce a car door or windshield and still do damage on the other end. You dont want your carry weapon to be the only line of defense . Have you ever tried to pull your carry from a seated position ? How about from behind a seatbelt and under your long shirt ( so you can keep it concealed ) and from under your hip. All while the adrenaline is pumping and the safety on your pistol is so small ( it feels like ) that you couldnt find it with a magnifying glass.
Just food for thought , try the scenario out and get back to me . Then think of trying to reholster after the threat is eliminated ! It is a whole new task to tackle . Practice it so you can figure out what works for you . Good luck !!

Keychain & keyring  - 
 
Not sure this goes in the keychain section, but it's a tool meant to be carried on keys...

But since my keys look like a janitors, I found a clever way to carry my leatherman pocket tool.

Wanting to buy or build a scout rifle (based on Jeff Cooper's design)

Hoping to find the most cost effective, yet closest to the original concept as possible.

The features I want, in order of importance:

.30 caliber in a common round (.308, 30-06, 7.62xdamn-metric-system)

Barrel, 20" or less

Easy scope mounting

Magazine capacity: detachable box with 10+ mags available. Will settle for 5round rotary, or equivalent.

Bonus points if they make a left handed version.


So far these are the rifles I've thought of to build off of.

A build is awesome. And I know I am gonna get flack for this because it's not popular but Savage model 11 Scout is awesome and has all you are requiring for a really reasonable price. Plus I believe "not positive", that the model 11 also is available in south paw.

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.

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.

Any thoughts on M&P45? I'm just hoping all of BO's speeches don't drive up ammo costs again.

5. Please add content to your posts. When posting about a news story or gun porn please include some of your own commentary. GaG should not be a link dump but a place of discussion.

A post reshared from another location still requires original content.

So thanks for your thanks but this post still has to go.

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.
