    Probably you haven't been to the same fuel islands that I have been to people walking up to you in trench coats ...

    Just noticed you used this latest bout of lawlessness to prove your point when much of the same type weapons have been used in similar scenarios around the country in the last 18-24 months.

    I am completely against what happened in D.C. and other cities regardless of what those involved believe.
    Just couldn't help but notice it was those idiots in D.C. you mentioned and not any other display of violence we've seen across this country.

    10 years eh?
    I've been out here 46 and have experienced vast changes.
    I also carried a 25 cal Beretta back in the day.
    The past 15 I've been permitted and carry every day.
    Never had the need to protect myself or my family but if I had to I would not hesitate and monthly range time helps me to feel prepared should I need to.
    Do you not see or at least read or watch the happenings around you?
    Violent crime is all around us and increasing in frequency and voracity.
    Just because you've not been a victim doesn't mean you can't.
    It's your right not to carry a firearm, to defend yourself and family, but don't infringe upon or slander those who chose to, and not become the victim.
     
    bigguns, JoeyJunk, jason6541 and 10 others Thank this.

    I am looking at the shockwaves as well as this one by Remington....Apparently these guns don't fall into any certain category....They are not a shotgun...They are not a short barrel shotgun...It's not a pistol grip...It's actually classified by the ATF as a 13" firearm...So all the rules and regulations for those guns don't pertain to this gun..Not sure if you or anyone else knows how that affects taking it through different states ?
    .Tested: Remington V3 Tac-13

    That's a nice Ruger. Might be a little much for the truck though. My everyday carry is a little Ruger LCP .380 that fits nicely in my front pants pocket. Not going to blow any big holes in anyone and only hold 6+1. But if I need more than that I probably screwed anyway.
    Friend of mine has one of these. A Freedom Arms Model 83, Field Grade in .454 Casull.

    Again, a little much for the truck.
