Sweet - I've seen much, much worse. A little TLC and you've found yourself a good, solid weapon there...

True. This gun has some life left in it. Even in it's uncleaned condition, the action is smoother than my 870 Express...

The bird of peace better watch out this fall.

On CCL. There are actually statistics that show the more guns in an area, the lower the crime rate. Why? Because the Criminals feel less safe. Because they don't know who is carrying the ability to level the field and kill them.

As for Florida, whatever idiocy was perpetrated would have been perpetrated regardless of CCL. I recall some statistics that are a bit dated now stating that in the ten or so year history of CCL in Florida, a grand total of TWO permits had been revoked, for TECHNICAL violations. One guy had his when he went to a courthouse for something and forgot he wasn't supposed to carry in. And a woman had hers taken for carrying at an airport.

It also had statistics about thieves in Florida waiting at the airport and preying on tourist because those were the only ones they could be certain weren't carrying.

Do you have any links to stats on CCL and crime rates? While I tend to agree with what you said, I was looking for some good statistics.

Funny about thieves and the airport. But, you do know, if you follow FAA regulations, you can check your gun in your luggage. Re arm in the bathroom, and off you go, as long as your CCL is reciprocated by the state you are in.

I'd like to see those statistics, too.
I'm pretty sure a crackhead or a junkie with a gun, does not consider who else may be carrying a gun.. They want only one thing, money for drugs.
Same thing with muggers and rapists. They chose their victims based on what they consider weak or helpless. A weak person or helpless person isn't thought to carry a gun.
Let's face it crime isn't going down, because there are permits to carry.
Hell, around here, homes known to have guns in them, are broken into, so the guns can be sold on the street.
The home invaders know that there are guns there and still go.
That goes for gas stations and convenience stores too.Most have a gun in the store, but they still get robbed.

Can any of you open any of the PDF's form this Texas state gubment link? http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/adminis.../convrates.htm

For some reason, Foxit will not open them. Ahh, is working now. They show the number of convictions of different crimes, and then how many people with a CCL were convicted of the crime, and the %. That was what I was looking for, but nationally.

70-685 on Friday and then the 70-680 on APril 26. After that I will be back here to regale you with awesome stories and experiences that I have had as a test pilot with the Space Corps.


Smoke me a kipper...I'll be back for breakfast!

Guess what, I failed the 70-685 by 53 points. Hardest test I've ever taken. I'm boning up for a second shot at the end of the month.

Somehow I think this has got to be Lister's fault. Better luck next time.

MS courses are really tough, you can have a "technically correct" answer & get it wrong. On the older tests, if you didn't choose "dbl click on my computer", you got it wrong.

Just what I was told.
I'd rather not find out if you catch my drift.

Could you expand on that a little bit? I'm just curious.

Hey, I notice you mentioned KelTec shortly before my post, and I hadn't seen it before.

I know someone who has a PF-9. A very nice little gun. Long take up before the actual trigger pull, and it's very jumpy. Still a nice gun for short range shooting though. I'd love to shoot some of their other guns though.
