  1. 1911 Carry
    Hey all! I'm hoping to get some experience here, and hopefully put to bed an argument I've been having with myself for several years now. Over the years, regardless of what 1911's I've owned and carried, I've always had some sort of "nightstand" pistol wearing both a pistol light and a MRDS...

    Here is the infamous photo of the Dallas shooter: If this was what you saw, where would you shoot? Would you attempt the head, or try to shoot through the arm into the chest cavity? The shooter appears to be wearing (soft) body armor, and he's hunched forward and bladed toward you. So...

    I have yet to shoot it but I got a pretty good deal on some Hornady Critical Defense 185 gr FTX. Is this considered adequate for home defense (or self defense)? And if so, would it be in my best interest to make my range ammo for practice 185 gr as well so I would get similar recoil?

    I have been carrying for three years since I got my permit. Low crime rate where I live but high where I work. I have never come close to drawing my gun. How close or have any of you had to draw your gun in a self-defense situation? Civilian, not military or law enforcement.

    Wondering if that last shot was justified. Looks like he fired 4 shots, but with no audio, hard to tell.

    While none of us may agree with everything put forth in this, it seems well done and very informative! So sad this has to be important to us. But it IS! http://activeshooter.lasd.org/
