  1. Gun Talk

    I am indeed talking about the M&P 9 Shield
  2. F-18 Down at Key West

    I RARELY place cred on initial reports and "witness" accounts but they are saying it "burst into flames" while still airborne. Also, interesting that the hook is down? One would think the Super Hornets would be holding up better than the legacy birds but from recent reports the entire fleet is having serious issues due to overuse as noted by VMFA187. Prayers to the family.

    I did a lot of research (and shooting), and narrowed my search to the Glock 43 and M&P 9 for my concealed carry weapon. I am a fairly large dude and have big hands so grip has always been an issue for me with smaller handguns. Both are easily concealed in the sticky holster I use in my waistband. I found the Glock a bit thicker and shorter, the shortness actually impacted my grip and ultimately my accuracy. The M&P 9 being thinner and a bit longer allows me to get all of my fingers on the grip and for me personally makes it feel more stable. Both shot well but I was driving nails with the M&P 9 (so was my wife), so in the end I went with this weapon and have been very pleased carrying it for the past two years.
  4. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    I pulled out of the base gas station one day and TSgt Snuffy passes me going the opposite direction as I took a drink from the bottle I just purchased at the shopette. I immediately hear a siren and look back to see him powerslide his patrol car, fishtail his cruiser on the shoulder with dirt, rocks, and grass flying everywhere. Lights blazing he comes raging up behind me so I pull over. He nearly runs to my side of the car and starts yelling, "I got you Sirrrrrr, I got you!" Ummmm Huh? You got me doing what TSgt? "I got you drinking and driving Sirrrrrrrr, I saw you drinking that beer you have in your lap!!#%^$*" I take a deep breath and reply "Hey Sargeeeeee, do you mean this ROOT beer? He looked at the bottle three times, his head rocking sideways like a confused dog. He didn't say another work, he just walked away.

    It doesn’t matter to me, but for some religious beliefs trump profits. God Bless America.

    It's not a Constitutional right to purchase a cake from any baker either. You just destroyed the liberal argument to the Supreme Court that would force a Baker to make a cake for a homosexual couple. The ruling later this year will have huge implications.
  7. China & Chinese Shenanigans

    I believe there was also a pres release stating they planned to sail the CSG through the waters claimed by China.
  8. AFSOC Leadership Drain

    Two out of last three AFSOC Commanders were NOT pilots.
  9. AFSOC Leadership Drain

  10. AFSOC Leadership Drain

    40 out 110 AFSOC O-6's hit the eject button, including a few HPOs (at least one a multi-year BPZ sitting Wing/CC). Some might see this as a good thing, but that is still a lot of experience walking out the door all at once.
  11. AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    Not a chance in hell. I still can't believe a superpower would abdicate logistics control to another nation. If we buy A-29 I hope our politics never run afoul of Brazil.
  12. Future T-38 replacement?

    Even if they make a decision they can still cancel it...look no further than JSTARS last week.
  13. AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    Copy...the point lost on most is both the AT-6 AND the A-29 will cost $20 million. If we are going to make this big investment for 300 aircraft I just wish we would get the most for the $ and the American taxpayer.
