Trying to find some sort of cross-reference index between the GE/MRAS/ST Aerospace Thrust Reverser part numbers.

Sporting guns are completely different than WMDs that NRA and other gun "fanatics" support. I have never owned a gun but I am all for personal protection. If you need 50 rounds a minute to feel secure, maybe you should see a therapist. One is all it takes. If you need to pop off 50 rounds...Jump to post
Volatile situations, like being robbed, assaulted, raped and your gun is at home? Thanks, No. I'll keep carrying.

"An armed society is a polite society." I've walked into restaurants (in other states) were I could identify a dozen armed people and I never felt safer. More guns de-escalate as the individual is no longer in control. Lightsaber It depends on whether you are abusing them or they are abus...Jump to post

I'll have to disagree with you JJJ, carrying a firearm makes me more aware of issues regarding laws and liability. Carrying a firearm isn't a shield, it is a tool. I do not believe in advertising that a person is armed, but to each there own. If a person chooses to carry, it is their right, and thei...Jump to post

Funny how TX is perceived as being gun crazy but they’re only now getting around to unlicensed carry. Here in AZ we haven’t needed a license for a handgun and years ago did away with the need for a CCW permit. Anyone can legally carry a firearm openly or concealed. It is that desire to say somethin...Jump to post

A whole lot of nothing, but spin. Not a single fact. So you don't think mental illness has anything at all to do with mass shootings? Columbine, Sandy Hook, Aurora, Virginia Tech all can be traced to mental illness. Then, at the same time, we have "I'll teach them a lesson" types like Cha...Jump to post

And police officers have to pass a psychological panel to be able to do their duties. And there are some out there that I wouldn't trust with a straw and spitballs.

There is no gun show loophole. But carry on with the talking points. Bring up San Jose, where "according to his wife, he had mental health issues." California has some doozies of red flag laws or GVRO's, yet she doesn't bother to speak up? She had an opportunity to put a stop to the proces...Jump to post

Not a fan of open carry, but it is better than no carry. As johns624 pointed out, its been allowed in Vermont, so unwind the knickers.Jump to post
I imagine that there are moderation logs. You can tell when a moderator edits or deletes comments or an entire thread. For a site like this, there will several entries per day, but some transparency would be nice. If a thread is started without any issues, and it ruffles feathers, you should at leas...Jump to post

What justifies shooting people running away? There are protocols for using deadly force. You can see in plenty of videos the foot chases. They don't just start blasting.

We're all just fortunate you have no actual role in the justice system. Crimony sakes. No activist of any kind can be a juror? Gimme a break.

I have no dog in this hunt. You can look back and I stated that certainly, manslaughter. For those of you thinking the color of Chauvin or Floyd's skin has anything to do with it, it doesn't.

Whether or not Chauvin has a reasonable shot at getting an appeal, it isn't going to happen. He has become a sacrificial lamb so that the city doesn't burn.

Poor reference; NRA and the GOP. Funny how when posted, the facts evaporate into thin air. The GOP wasn't the party that had black people restrained.

Is Center mass = upper body? And when you say "Law enforcement, and defensive training" is that in the US or all over the world?
Best regards and stay safe,
Plenty of videos out there of femoral bleed outs. If you don't wrap a tourniquet immediately, they have a few minutes. Law enforcement, and defensive training is made to hit center mass. No way of knowing if the shot placement will be lethal or non-lethal.Jump to post
