Probably just not feasible, but I have many pistols and the 1911 is what I'm best at. I carry an LCP MAX and some other .380s, but I'm not so hot with those. Also have a slightly larger Ruger 9MM that works great. Just about can't miss with the Colt Government Model.

I suppose the answer is to practice, practice, practice with the smaller guns?

I’m curious if this magazine has any reaction or opinion about Trump’s photo-op/visit to Palmetto State Armory the other day. I think he is signaling to MAGA world to get strapped

Today is another indictment day. An important one relating Trumps conspiracy to attempt a violent coup. Part of it was to use the Insurrection Act to suppress the population (I hate Mike Flynn). Anyone doing anything different in advance of a trial or 2024 by way of preparation?

Anybody going shooting this weekend? Hoping to get a round of trap or skeet in.

Not a super-surprising result, but it's good to have some numbers:

Kids who saw the gun safety video (compared to the car safety video) were more likely to tell an adult (33.9% of kids vs. 10.6% of kids), less likely to touch a gun (39.3% vs. 67.3%) and held it for less time if they did touch it (42.0 seconds vs. 99.9 seconds). They were also less likely to pull the trigger (8.9% vs. 29.8%), and pulled the trigger fewer times if they did pull it (4.2 vs. 7.2).

Risk factors that raised the likelihood of engaging in unsafe behavior around the guns included being male, watching age-inappropriate PG-13 and R-rated movies, and interest in guns, as reported by parents.

We also identified several protective factors that made children less likely to engage in unsafe behavior around the guns. One was previous exposure to gun safety material in a course or video. Another was having guns in the home, which makes sense because surveys find that parents with guns are more likely to talk to their children about gun safety than parents without guns. Finally, having negative attitudes about guns, like believing they’re not cool or fun, made kids less likely to engage in unsafe behavior in our study.

Ideally we should be teaching gun safety as a standard part of the school curriculum. This study suggests that it wouldn't even take much time, just repeated, brief coverage.

I haven't watched PSR's other videos, so I don't know exactly where his politics lie. I thought this one was pretty decent though. Gives an overview of the history of the conflict in Myanmar, and talks about the FGC-9's role in that.

Let’s start with this: The citizen’s right to possess firearms is a fundamental political right. The political principle at stake is quite simple: to deny the state the monopoly of armed force. This should perhaps be stated in the obverse: to empower the citizenry, to distribute the power of armed force among the citizenry as a whole. The history of arguments and struggles over this principle, throughout the world, is long and clear. Instituted in the context of a revolutionary struggle based on the most democratic concepts of its day, the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution is perhaps the clearest legal/constitutional expression of this principle, and as such, I think, is one of the most radical statutes in the world.

Hey all (yes, all 55 of you people that are subscribed - I see you, and you're awesome people),

I've been contacted by two of the people that were mods on r/LiberalGunOwners (u/u/1-760-706-7425 and u/GiveAShot, @account and @GiveAShot, respectively) and they've convinced me as best as they could - given that I'm permanently banned from Reddit - of their identities and status as moderators on r/LGO.

I've added them as moderators here because, TBH, I'm winging it here, and am not the most tech savvy person by a long shot. They have experience as moderators, and wanted some kind of backup in case the subreddit goes completely down. I'm happy to oblige; I'd like to see some kind of continuity of community.

Ask someone who claims to be a weapons expert of any stripe whether shotguns are effective for home defense and you are going to get an EARFUL of opinions.So...

This is off topic, but still relevant.

Over writing and deleting your post and comment history can be a pain in the ass. I wasn't able to get the GreasyFork script to work correct, and manually overwriting 12 years of content I generated was too much of a pain in the ass.

This script was removed from the Chroms store just over a year ago, but seems to still work. ...Seems to. That is, while it's moving briskly, I expect that it's going to take several hours to complete the task.

If you don't want your posts and content on Reddit in general, and r/LGO in particular, to continue to be used by reddit, feel free to try this particilar extension out, and see if it works for you.

This is a magazine for people that identify as left-of-center, and either own firearms, or are in favor of gun rights (e.g., 2A rights for people that live in the US). This is a PRO-GUN magazine (ha!, see what I did there?). This magazine is explicitly pro-LGBTQ+, pro-feminism, and pro-BLM.
