    First OC experience

    imported post Yes, I do, when appropriate. Today I was hiking. That's an appropriate time for open carry in the Kalifornia of the East Coast. Anywho... I was surprised at how uneventful it was. Only one person even said anything. This middle-aged guy and his two young sons came up behind us...

    Carrying at tax day tea party, legal or no?

    imported post Like most convoluted firearms laws, I can never get this one right. I know it's illegal to carry to federals buildings, but what about outside state buildings? The protest is supposed to be on the "steps" of capitol building in Hartford. Would it be legal to carry there? Don't...

    Some SKS questions...

    imported post So I finally found an SKS that was both nice and cheap. I think it'll make a good SHTF gun. Anywho, I had a bunch of questions all of which I've forgotten, except one. Is it possible to remove the grenade launcher? It appears to be threaded on and pinned into place. Can I simply...

    Opinions on G29 or other 10mm suggetions

    imported post So I do a decent amount of hiking and a 9mm isn't going to cut it for medium-sized dangerous animals, and slinging a rifle or shotgunover my back isn't advisable around here. About the largest animal I would have to worry about would be small black bear, but those are few and far...

Wolf's is local to me, but, being the assholes that they are, they don't even allow someone to WATCH without a permit.Hoffman's new range is...

    Crime free society

    imported post I had an interesting question posed to me today so I wanted to get some opinions on it. I wasn't sure how to respond because it isn't something I had ever really though of. With that said, there's some things that need to be understood to keep this from going grossly off-track...

    Carrying on tribal lands

    imported post I'm not talking about open carrying, just carrying at all. I can't, for the life of me, find anything on the CT website about carrying on tribal lands (i.e. the casinos and surrounding areas). I know they're almost considered their own little states within a state so does the...
