Trump blew that before Sessions was confirmed...as Acting-AG he could have sacked Rosenstein before Sessions came...

Not saying whoever is #3 would have had different results...but it may have...anyway one asshat would be gone.

Also, kinda goes to the vetting of Sessions...Trump should have gotten firm answers about such an eventuality...the D-MC was pressing hard toward that direction since Clinton flubbed the election, Operation Coup commenced before the ink was dry on the election results...if he failed to get a satisfactory answer from Sessions before naming him, he could have gone to somebody else.

It is Trump's mistake any way you cut it...now he has to unscrew a light-bulb that is hot and cannot be turned off until it is unscrewed.

Ah!  He did sack the Acting AIG, whats her name.

If I were to recommend anything for a 1st timer female gun owner it would be a revolver. Why? Because they remain the best "point & click" interface.

Think of the series of decisions involved in a firefight

Recognizing the need and making the decision to pull your weapon
The mechanics of drawing your weapon
The mechanics of aiming and sighting your weapon
One in the pipe? Safety off?
And that last second decision to fire - did you remember to check your field of fire for collateral damage?

There are a ton of factors and decisions to make. Until you've had sufficient training to form subconscious habits and until those habits become ingrained there are a bunch of opportunities to either freeze up or become indecisive.

Revolvers, especially hammer-less revolvers eliminate a couple of decisions that otherwise may chew up the seconds you have to effectively respond. "1 in the pipe" is the default, no slide or hammer to cock, and no safety to remember the correct position.

Their failure to feed and failure to fire rate is substantially lower.

Their shortcoming is the limitation of 5 or 6 bullets compared to magazines of up to 14 rounds in a semi-auto - but then we are not talking about advanced fighters in advanced firefights.

Sig P320 for both- 40 S&W for him, 9MM for her. Add the new Crimson Trace now available for each. ::thumbsup:: Forgot to add, his in a carry, hers in a compact. The carry has a longer grip.

The only thing worse than not having a firearm with you need it is not knowing how to use it.

So I checked out NRA Women and they have a series of videos for women.  I started to watch one when the narrator posited what the most important thing women should know before going to a range.  I was expecting something like "NEVER POINT THE GUN ANYWHERE BUT DOWNRANGE!"

Nope.  It's "What do I wear?"   ::gaah::

My son is getting married in a couple of weeks.

Novel gift?  His and hers firearms.

And then there's all the other stuff:
1. cleaning
2. ammo
3. instruction
4. holster(?)
5. gun safe

I obviously can't buy them for them, but I can pay for them.

He's 6'2".  She's about 5'4".  I'm thinking a 9 for him and a .380 for her.

Thoughts?

  I refuse to let that little sh*t upset me. He's just not worth the emotion.

You sure you're Sicilian?   ::exitstageleft::

He is what he is...and while annoying, he is a puppet...his masters are higher on The List...and that publisher...I hope backing this dreck backfires spectacularly!

 I got the paperwork to prove it. And as a Sicilian He's as Important as a fly to me. We don't talk about him and he becomes nothing he's only important if we talk about this turd.

This is interesting, never considered that kind of pairing,...

http://www.armoryblog.com/blades/knives/sog-bladelight-led-flashlight-knife/

...but I can see how it could come in handy.

Kinda reminds me of this...



...I can see a use for both.   :D

And I am not sure if this "deal" from 15 months ago is still valid...

http://www.armoryblog.com/firearms/rifles/deal-alert-yugo-n-pap-ak-47-and-battle-pack-for-599/

...but if it can be found around those prices might not be a bad investment.  I just don't know that much about AK's to know if these Serbian variants are solid.

I reckon their recent experiences taught them a few things, maybe they are OK and still available.

Do we still have a ban on imports?  Did we get rid of all Obamian edicts?

I know I am still waiting on those Korean War M-1's to be repatriated.   >:(
