Real quick, who actually uses the file on their multi tool, and what do you typically use it for? It's probably the only tool I never use, so I'd like to know if there's some usefulness to it that I never considered.

I've decided to be done with folding knives for my edc. And I'm never going back. Quicker access, less maintenance, more ergonomic, and it frees up pocket space.

Buck 102, because I'm a bit old fashioned, with some pictures next to a 2 cell AA mini mag, and a buck 119 for size reference

disclaimer: nothing in this post, nor the comments on it, are legal advice

I wanna get in to some nitty gritty here about informing an officer of your weapon during a traffic stop. Particularly your opinions on a few matters:

1) assuming you are NOT In a duty to inform state, do you inform? In some circumstances, informing can lead to unintended consequences, such as "Terry searches" or having a rookie police officer over react to the knowledge that you are armed. But if the officer somehow Discovers the weapon those consequences could become ten times worse.

2) If you are in a DTI state, don't you think your constitutional rights are being violated? Simply by exercising your 2A right, you are surrendering your 4A rights, according to Terry v. Ohio

3) pretend for a moment that you keep your firearm in the glove compartment. (Please don't respond with "I would never Keep it there" it's a thought experiment, so just go with it) and the officer asks for a document required, which also happens to be in the glove compartment. (Again, just pretend you aren't Smart enough to have pulled it out before the officer got to your window) What do you do there? Even if you are not required to inform, that seems like a quick way to either get a bunch of new holes in your body, or at the very least to end up face down on the asphalt.

Ready... Go

What's everyone's opinion on carrying a fixed blade knife. All my folders seem to always get lost out of my pocket, and tend to get dirt down in the handle and blade. I'm thinking of carrying a buck 102 on a belt sheath.

Get a fixed blade
It's not worth it, get a folding knife.

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. 

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?

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 ;)

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?
