We all know what happened today.
We all have felt an immense sense of sorrow for those victims in Connecticut.
And, we know what's coming.
I'm posting this thread for us to gather our resources.
Before doing so becomes illegal.
Keep your powder dry, my FRiends.
I’m partial to the RCBS press myself. But either is a good choice.
We all know it’s coming. Are we going to let them disarm us? As soon as I saw how many kids were killed and I saw the little 4th grader being interviewed I could already see the nightly news and MSNBC playing this to the hilt. It’s coming. When the time comes are we going to willingly give up our protection?
Don’t put all your eggs in one basket either. Learn to use a knife and make sure you have a nice collection of fighting blades.
Going to the Nation’s Gun Show in a week or so. I fear a MASSIVE rise in prices for 9mm and .45 rounds. I NEVER buy less than 2 thousand at a time. I like to do 100 rounds a week to keep my skills sharp. We shall see. I carry a S&W 4506 or a CZ-75. Sadly, I am for more accurate with the CZ in 9mm. I guess I will never be quite as deadly with the .45, seeing as how I am 5’ 7” and weigh 150 pounds.
I just got back from the local Army Surplus with a bunch of goodies to make a shoulder holster for when I’m sitting around the house in my PJs. My Crossbreed Supertuck would drop my drawers to my ankles if I tried using it.
Then, my Sons would point and laugh...
Let me predict that we will see some form of new gun control laws due to this incident.
Excellent holsters. I have two:
I’m a north FL freeper transplanted from Kali, CCW since I got here a few years back. Try to stay active...
My guess is that the next phase is going to come and shockingly fast. Today already we have Obama weeping and choking up, and all flags at half-mast.
Next week will be 20 tiny tot coffins with precious teddy bears on top, and photos and home videos galore. It will be the most heart-wrenching show ever produced by the White House-Hollywood-MSM alliance.
A bill will be proposed. If it’s not this one, it may be worse. But this at least. A total ban on magazines capable of holding more than ten cartridges. (Or, ten may be one over the limit, with ten-rounders banned.)
No buyback, no compensation, no grandfather, no sunset. Instant felon if you’re found with an eleven-round “massacre magazine.” This is how Hollywood/MSM will produce this episode over the next two weeks.
Christmas Eve, with all of the tiny tot funerals. The tears will pour like Niagara.
Only a few weak-kneed RINOs in the House need to roll over, and they will. This bill will pass like lightning, we may be shocked how fast.
I thought it would pass in the year after Gabby Giffords, but I was wrong. Let’s see what happens now.
I hope I’m wrong, again.
Try a 1911.
It is sad, very sad. It was a gun free zone. Imagine how many lives could have been saved if just one, just one teacher had a gun.
The local Tanner Gun Show calender for Denver and Pueblo:
If you’re not in a state that already bans hi-cap mags, like my state (CA), I suggest you stock up.
When I’m sitting around the house in my pj’s my weapon is on the table within easy reach. No concealment required.
I used a 1911 from 1981 until about 7 years ago. I LOVE the 1911, but I also “need” the double action/single action I get from the S&W 4506 and the CZ.
Sadly more effective than shots into a packed stadium of football fans.
Amazingly prescient fiction, Matt.
May God have mercy on us all, and especially those families directly affected.

Your wise words are exactly what I’ve been thinking all day, FRiend.
Honored to have you at our side.
