Something weird about a man being near a Girl Scout camp with his hands in his pants, and carrying a gun. I hope they have it sorted out by now anyway.
Anybody know if the Hi-Points have a safety? I'm pretty sure they're striker fired, but couldn't even say that for sure. I've owned a couple of Shields, (still own & carry the 45) and I would not buy one that didn't have a safety. Same reason I don't own any Glocks.
I would never shove any of them down the front of my pants, safety or no safety, holster or no holster. Never ever point a gun's muzzle at anything you don't want shot! (my version)
I have carried handguns in my pocket but some guns such as the small .38 I won't.
And I certainly won't jam one in my pants aimed at my fellows or anything else.
TV show and movie examples has probably caused a lot of man grief. How about that holing a gun sideways and with you head bent over to your shoulder: that was a great contribution to the hood and misfires in some guns.
My Brother caries concealed, with a pocket holster, on a small 9mm Colt. Maybe less chance with the holster going off but if i gotta draw the gun I don't want to fight to get the holster off and or shoot myself down there when I put my finger on the trigger.
In the heat of threat to your life you are not going to wait to draw the gun push the safety down and then put your finger on the trigger. Not sure why he was shifting his gun and put his finger on and pulled the trigger.
Just plain ole dumb ***. Learn how to safely carry, and draw and return fire without shooting your self anywhere, or anyone or anything else. Too lazy city feller, with no place to practice? maybe some alcohol?
I am wondering if I can get away with wearing my cowboy rig, socially, around here?

I recently bought a used Beretta from the local Gander. It was in generally good shape, but it has some odd markings. Figured I would ask here to see if anyone has seen something like this before.

Those are the calibers I have. When I went to the range for the first time a few years ago, I was shocked at how loud they were. Even with your ear muffs on, it can still be heard. Roy Rogers and Gene Autry would be stone deaf. What do the guys do in the military or policemen? They don't...
Recently, I was visiting a good friend in Utah - we went out to a local range, and he let me shoot his Springfield M1A Douglas Tactical Barrel (.308)
What A Machine! I've only been shooting a year; I have a 10/22, Beretta 92FS 9mm, American Predator in 6.5 Creedmoor and a Mini-14 .223/5.56; I...
Wasn't sure about where this goes, but here goes. I have purchased a few guns off Gun Broker. I must say, I have not had a problem. Sometimes I just wonder through looking at what folks have for sale. Sometimes I see a specific gun model for sale by many people, and the price usually varies...
