RE: Chat hub
Johnny, I should probably clarify what I mean when I say it'll be in the car most of the time. What I mean by that is since I'm in the car most of the time, it'll be with me. I work in churches, and most churches prohibit concealed weapons (although if it's concealed, who would ever know?) so I don't want to carry it in with me on the job, but most of my time is spent driving from place to place anyway. When I get home, the gun will go inside with me. 

I was actually looking at a Springfield XD or XDM, both look and feel great, but they're a bit pricey for my current budget. It's definitely one I'll be saving up to buy in the future, but for now I want something less expensive. I looked at a Hi-Point too, but it looked and felt like a smoldering pile of shit, so that's out. I like what you said about the best gun being the one that's with you, as long as you can hit your target and neutralize the threat it doesn't matter what the caliber is. Of course, some rounds are better at neutralizing the threat, seeing as how a poorly aimed .22 could pass right through someone with minimal internal damage and only serve to enrage them. But iirc, the military used .227 for snipers up until WWII, when the .30-06 became the preferred high powered round, until finally the .50 cal that we have today. Gun history is a very cool subject, I used to watch Mail Call on the History Channel every day to soak up as much as I could Smile

Pulsar, that open carry thing sounds like a double edged sword. On the one hand, knowing that someone has a gun could serve as a good crime deterrant. On the other hand, the criminals know which person to take out first, and like you said, some people would see people with a gun on their hip as targets for theft. Here in TN, we recently passed a law allowing people to keep a loaded handgun in their car/truck/etc without having a concealed carry permit, and there's been talk of doing away with the concealed carry permit altogether. After all, the 2nd Amendment says we have the right to keep and bear arms, it doesn't say anything about having to pass a test or go through the proper red tape to limit that freedom. 

On a totally unrelated note, Hey Whiskey!!! Red Pandas are freakin' awesome!!!

Morning Rob! 4 minutes early this morning Tongue

Michael, it is an insurance issue for churches. As in banning guns reduces the insurance cost by about 90%

RE: Chat hub
Well, the gun is going to have to be put on hold for a while... I bought an engagement ring today. Still haven't figured out exactly how/when/where to pop the Q, but my girlfriend doesn't read the forum anyway so I'm safe Tongue

After previously talking and deciding there was no need to get married. My Mrs popped the question when we were out getting drunk one night.. Air_kiss She then asked if I remembered what she said the next day Huh
That was 18 years ago and we're still very much in love Yahoo
