Picture for scale.

I've carried a Kel-Tec on-and-off for about a decade. I added the side-clip and carry the weapon naked against my flesh. This mean I have rust stains on me and it has rust stains on it. Right after I purchased the side-arm, I upgraded to the .357 Sig kit, which is just a 40 S&W slide & mag with a .357 Sig barrel. It is that mouse what roars.

But, I need to refinish it. The bluing is getting rusty, and the barrel is oxidizing black. Also, I dress better, now, and having rust stains on $40 dress shirts is laaaaaaaaaaaame.

Should I tumble or sandblast it myself and do my own rebluing? Pay for nitride? Chrome?

Frankly, if I can't find a good solution from you boys, I'm slipping it to a cop buddy of mine and buying a Para-Ord NightHawg. Thanks,

Dragon

Based on my limited experience with the Para Warthog, I wouldn't. Multiple stoppages in 2 mags trying out federal hydrashoks.

Production of the .40 and .357s ended several years ago, before the turn of the decade. They've been out of production since at least 2009, probably 2008 or 2007.

Apparently limp wristing and various operating issues due to the low weight of the pistols caused them to be discontinued.

Walther PPS? S&W Shield? Not quite as small, but probably what I'd personally think about.

How does a Beretta Nano do? You don't hear much about them nowadays.

The stock trigger on the Shield and PPS are both better than the Nano's DAO trigger.

Otherwise, the Nano isn't bad, but a tiny bit snappy.

Maybe this is a waste of a thread, but you guys helped me get into the Army and gave me advice on basic. Now I'm at Ft. Lee for AIT, just got here 2 days ago and had a pass for the weekend because my family followed the bus here. This is pretty much for advice, opinions, and anyone else who browses this site and is at Ft. Lee. I'm in the 16th Ordnance BN.
It's very chill so far, my PSG is cool but doesn't take any shit obviously. Tobacco is allowed though I don't use any, just thought it was neat. There's a gym and a PX 50ft from my barracks. Phones allowed after the duty day. I'm a 91c by the way.

Thank you for your decision, committing to it, and updating us on your progress thus far. It might be peacetime and a budget crunch, but I've never met any decent individual who didn't believe that joining the military didn't do them some form of good in their lives, so keep that as a feather in your pocket.

I know AIT is a bit more relaxed for MOSes with longer cycles, so I don't know what to say other than save your money (don't blow your cash on a laptop, DVD player, and brand-new cell phone or any other stuff the kiosks sell), and do some extra PT on your own time on Saturdays if you can. You'll feel the difference a bit of light jogging and sprints can make come Monday.

15 sec sprint @ 80% of what your all out feels like
15 sec jog
30 sec sprint
30 sec jog
45 sec sprint
45 jog

continue bumping up in 15 sec increments to 2 minutes.
When you do your 2 minute sprint you get 1:45 rest
1:45 pushing it sprinting
1:30 rest
continue with 15 sec decreased rest periods, once you hit 1 minute you should be sprinting all out on each sprint down to 15 sec, at which point you're done

Do it 3 times a week once released from the duty day. Your run time will improve.

>This is YOUR opportunity to list the major planks and policy maxims of the Libertarian Party platform and people can debate on what is good and what is dodgy.

I'm not really a Ron Paul Libertarian but-

It's pretty much just what I've been saying above. Check out the "Non-Agression Principle." The concept is essentially just that the initiation of force is always immoral.

That someone has fallen on hard times does not justify theft and coercion in order to assist them.

That doesn't mean that there wont or shouldn't be vehicles to assist those in need. People WANT to help! That's WHY they vote for foreign aid and disaster assistance and the welfare state, because they care about such things, and as far as they know that's the only way to git 'er done.

They're not going to stop caring or stop looking for ways to help just because they can no longer seize their funding at gunpoint.

  I don't hate Ayn Rand's writing or her philosophy, but she's not exactly balanced in her works. Ayn Rand should be understood as the fully-opposed end of the spectrum from Marxist-Leninism as instituted in the Soviet Union, where she spent her early years.

I've read and own four of her books, it seems to me that it's less that she hates personal acts of charity as that she hates legally- or socially-enforced charity. To her, there's nothing worse than saying "You're a bad person for not giving away your stuff/time/effort".

Let me put it this way: I spent two months in Africa, volunteering my time, money, and effort to help folks get medical care. That's me, acting out my own rational belief system, on behalf of others. That was a year ago (actually, I was in Haiti a year ago, but w/e), and I really hope I can get back overseas again. It was a very rewarding, if very difficult, lifestyle.

It would be the most heinous of crimes if I guilt-tripped/threatened/coerced anyone into doing anything similar with their lives. *I* think humanitarian work like I did in Haiti and Lesotho is a fantastic way to spend one's life, but if you don't want to, it would be utterly immoral for me to force you to do so. What Ayn Rand seems to have hated most was the people who told people to sacrifice themselves and live in servitude solely for the "greater good".

It's in my rational self-interest to pursue a meaningful and rewarding existence (as I define such a thing), and if that means helping people, so be it. It would be foolish, however, to pursue a lifestyle that was neither rewarding nor meaningful because some guy told me to.

He's been to prison a couple times. Wasn't really around. He told me when I was in my preteens that the reason he ended up in jail (the second time) was because he helped some cartel guys kidnap someone who owed them a lot of money. He wouldn't tell me what happened to the guy afterwards.

Our relationship was...a bit strained, after that.

In my adult years, he drove up from California to help me bug out of a place I was living in, after the living situation went sideways. He was remarkably unphased when we came home to the door being wide open (we'd closed and locked it before we left), and I had to run into my own god damned house to clear it room by room. He did seem a bit uncomfortable that I was carrying a gun, but just because it was a felony for him to be around me with one whether I was licensed to carry or not.

He's kind of a weird guy. He's smart, but he's not all there anymore. He has some weird ideas about Jews and gays, and uncomfortably refers to any girlfriends I have as my "friends". He seems to resent me for not dropping everything and moving out to live with him after he got out of jail, but considering I was barely in my double digits and could nary distinguish him from any of my mom's other "boyfriends", it wasn't much of a decision at the time.

Spent most of my childhood watching TV. Never really taught me much except how to shoot and drive. Gave me a somewhat decent moral compass though, I guess. Never spent that much time as a kid when my folks split cause I decided to be the only one in my family to go with my mom. He's a good man, I love him a lot, but he does some really asinine shit some times. I fear I'm going to regret not spending enough time with him. Hopefully shit will change in the future.

He's a lawyer, has been for about fifteen years. Divorced my mom when my sister and I were little and took custody of us. We still saw our mom because my dad wanted us to see her positively. They're still friends to this day but my mom just wasn't fit to be a parent. Nice lady, though, albeit a nut job.

We lived with his parents for a while and then a small apartment when he was in law school. He got a job and put my sister and I through private schools. Es the most patient, gentle, caring person I know. He worked, went through law school, and still made it a point to read to my sister and I every single night when we were little kids.

Very liberal, has lots of tattoos, lifts lots of weights, and is awesome at woodworking and has a full wood shop in his basement. Has made some seriously beautiful stuff. Makes lots and lots of dad jokes.

He was born in a shit town in south Georgia. Got his water from an open well and had one light bulb in a house that the wind blew through. His parents were God awful to the point of almost tossing him and his sister in a river during the winter and collect the insurance money. He said fuck school and had his 18th birthday in Vietnam. Killed a bunch of the fuckers, got showered in agent orange and came back with a limp. Got into many bar fights and motorcycle accidents. Worked many shit jobs in factories for a little folding money. Said screw that and became a Mormon and became a missionary for the church for 2 years. Later met my mom, got married and went to school to become a machinist and a welder. Worked his ass off in a chalk mine to feed me and my mom. I remember him being a very abrasive and angry man when I was a kid. He would stare off into space for long periods of time without speaking. He had no fucking mercy on nothing and none. Beat my ass with regularity( I often had it coming). He later got a better job at an Airforce base and knocked my mom up with my sister. That subsequently led to him dumping me off on my uncle pooch and grandmother during the summers.
He got hurt on the job and had a knee replacement with several complications. The agent orange has been coming back with a vengeance on his aging body. All that took the fight out of him and left him as the weak and lonely man he is today. My sister and mother think he's an asshole and dont ever want to be around him and he talks my(and my friends)fucking head off whenever I happen to stop by.
I feel sorry for him these days. He has no close friends and his extended family are all pretty much dead. I knew he had gone soft when I cussed him out to the point of locking himself in his shop to cry in the dark, right before leaving for Afghanistan. I didn't call home or attempt any communication the whole time I was gone. That broke him down quite a bit.
My great granddaddy was right. That fucker had gone soft.

I cut a bit more slack these days.... For now.

2. Collect gifts and donations for new life
3. LEAVE
4. Sign the prenups and the papers, just the two of you
5. If you believe in it, get married in a church, tie the knot, walk around the altar etc etc.... the only guests present here are parents
6. Rejoin party which continued without you in #3, everyone wishes you good will

So my squadron has gone around 6 months without any kind of major liberty incident. Friday night some new PFC in ordnance decided that this was un-sat and took it upon himself to get drunk underage, drive without a license, hit and total someone's car (no one was actually hurt), drive away, and then try to drive back on base wasted with a fucked up truck (no idea who it belonged to).
I just can't wrap my head around it. I've done a lot of dumb shit while I drunk but still what the fuck was he thinking?
Especially towards the end...I could be black out wasted and not have the balls to think I could drive through the front gate without getting caught.
Hopefully I can live through the impending death by power point.

I think his point is that people on drugs are not the sort to think about if-then equations, especially whilst intoxicated.

I'm always reminded that Al Capone went down for tax evasion because his books were found and the G-men proved he was making money.

If I ever decide to stop following laws, I'm going to do everything I can to make sure my car is licensed, properly registered, and I'll make sure to pay taxes. That way I don't get pulled over for a broken tail light or something similarly minor and end up with multiple life sentences because I had a crate of NFA weapons in the trunk.

Essentially, this.

If you're gonna be ridin' dirty, for fuck's sake, try to drive like a goddamn normal person.

That's like people who're speeding, see a cop, and stomp on their brakes so the front of their car dips.

You done fucked up now, not only are you guilty, but you tried to cover it up, and managed to call attention to the fact that you're fucking up.

Instead of just trucking right along, maybe letting their foot off the accelerator so they coast down a bit, and the vast majority of the time (Unless they're doing 45 in a 20), the 5-0 doesn't give a fuck about it.

When the San Antonio Police Department’s Tactical Response Unit busted through his front door, 52-year-old Adrian Perryman says he opened fire because he believed a home invasion was underway. He wounded a police officer, but claims he tossed his firearm once he saw they were cops and not criminals.
KSAT-TV

KSAT-TV

It took a jury in San Antonio, Texas, nine hours of deliberation to find Perryman not guilty on four counts of aggravated assault on a peace officer earlier this week. The raid occurred at Perryman’s home back in October 26, 2010.

Police officers testified that they shouted, “Police! Police!” as they broke down the door and then again when they were inside the home, KSAT-TV reports.

Criminals have been impersonating police doing warrant/drug raids for at least 15 years. One of the popular things was ripping off drug dealers, pocket the cash and resale the drugs, who are the dealers going to complain to? Home invasions using the technique as well. Funny thing is I don't remember any fake cops getting shot on bogus raids, they made so much noise everyone knew they were "suppose" to be the police no one thought to point a gun at them. Criminals scream "police" and walk away, cops act like criminals and get shot, go figure.
