" I think I found the definition of national emergency as per the 1976 National Emergency Act: "the words “any national emergency in effect” means a general declaration of emergency made by the President."

In other words anything the President wants it to mean. Why would I expect anything better to come out of Congress? "

when I visit my local pawn shops and out of town ones while on the road working I always ask if they have a box full of used holsters and if so I dig through them.
I bought these 2 for $25 the single clip is a Blackhawk made for a XD the Dual clip is a Winthrop actually made for the P07/P09 new the Blackhawk is around $45 the Winthrop is somewhere in the $60 neighborhood

Thanks for your source. I didn't read much as I really do have other things to do today, tomorrow and the rest of the weekend. But, based on past usage and acceptance of that usage by Congress and the courts (has anything ever come to the courts on this yet? And no, I don't plan on checking that out either,) an "emergency" seems to cover a multitude of conditions, often having little to do with the standard dictionary understanding of emergency. "

" there is no such thing as a perfect EDC set up (sorry to you G19 guys), there is no 1 pistol 1 holster option that is going to let you carry everywhere every day so give yourself as many options as you canand always keep an open mind to trying something new.

this is how I achieve a near EDC solution.

micro pistol; 32 tomcat
This little guy in an Uncle Mikes #3 fits even in my Wrangler Gold Buckle jeans that fit the way jeans are supposed to fit, plus it easily slips into any of my short's pockets. its mostly a backup pistol but if all I'm wearing is shorts and sandals I can still be armed

https://i.imgur.com/bcNUW47.jpg

small deep concealment with power; Shield 9mm
This is my smallest do it all pistol and is many peoples only pistol , like I said no single pistol can do it all
but the Shield gets close as does the G43 and P938, but even at this size it takes multiple holsters to make them all around players.
The way I do it.

A simplification perhaps but generally true. Of course I think the Trump haters should quit worrying about it because Trump will probably be a victim of Robert's skullduggery eventually. Here is the law that I believe Trump will eventually rely on to invoke the national emergency.

"The second would apply if a president were to declare a national emergency “that requires or may require the use of the armed forces.” If that were to happen, the defense secretary would be empowered to “(1) terminate or defer the construction, operation, maintenance, or repair of any Department of the Army civil works project that he deems not essential to the national defense, and (2) apply the resources of the Department of the Army’s civil works program, including funds, personnel, and equipment, to construct or assist in the construction, operation, maintenance, and repair of authorized civil works, military construction, and civil defense projects that are essential to the national defense.”
You do realize Trump and friends have passed more gun regulation in 2 yrs than O and cronies did in 8? And Trump still openly calling for more.

I voted for the guy. And hes done some good stuff. He's also done some bad stuff especially to the RTKABA. Please stop holding him up as defender of the RTKABA. He's demonstrably not.



Like I said I voted for him. But illegal immigration isn't anymore a national emergency than most of the other "national emergencies " still in force.

I don't care if he does declare a national emergency and it sticks.

And I know the dems and most Republicans in office want to obstruct every thing he does


My opinion is that Congress should not have passed a law in 06 that gave ANY President that ability. "

Of course it'a a straw man. Although I hope that she encourages a new Democratic president to try that, because I think it would signal the beginning of the end for the Democratic party. All I'm saying is that this will probably be tied up in court for a long time. Kind of sucks, but if a Democratic President tries a national emergency with the 2A, or climate change, I would expect Republican higher ups to take it to court, and the republican base questioning the legality of such a move, just like Dem's are now.

I'm sure they are a hoot! It is unfortunate that we do not have either the grass, the distance or the rifle shooters in our women's group.

Our ladies (middle age and older) are new enough to shooting that most of them can only handle shooting a .22 pistol from about 5 to 7 yards maximum SO FAR. They are making progress, though, and that's why we have this group. A couple have "graduated" to .380's. "P" (the head of the group) and I are proud of them. "

This would be clear to you if you would just admit that there is nothing Trump could have done that would have appeased any of the above. It is not about the border, it is about un-electing Trump , one way or another.

I don't know what you and the Democrats are so worried about, Trump will be stopped by the sleeper Roberts and the open border dreams of the Democrats will become a reality. Do you think the SCOTUS, at the beginning of Trump's term would have upheld his national emergency? Which of those multiverses in the video I posted that you didn't watch are you living in?

Yep. There are a lot of foods that fall into the category of "have to be done right", and Collards might top the list. It amazes me how different they can taste based on who is cooking them.

When I lived In Florida, there was a black man that sold Collards on the side of the road, like many sell boiled peanuts. The best ever!! I've never tasted anything close since, which sucks for me!! "

Blaming the targets is inappropriate, IMO.

The only time targets come into play is when you shoot them with airguns which they were not designed for.
I perfectly understand and acknowledge your statement and it is clear to me.

At no time or point did I blame the targets for anything. They are what they are.

MY PROBLEM with the targets is that nowhere on any on line page where they are for sale does it say that they must be used on a grassy surface, from 50 yards distance minimum. I checked 4 different on line vendors before actually ordering them and there was not one word about how and where they should be used.

If that information had been on even one of the web sites, I would not have ordered them because we do not have a grassy surface and the longest distance on our pistol ranges is 25 yards. The rifle range - that's another story, but our women's group is for pistols only at this point in time.

AND BTW: That information NOW actually is on the Amazon sales page for the one target - in my customer review of that item. "

Go through all the seasoning steps and add the seafood at the end....seafood cooks MUCH faster. Shrimp, crab, and oysters are my base-line minimum for a seafood gumbo. Scallops are good too! "

There's SO MANY ways to cook this, but I'm gonna give y'all the 'quick pot'
version.....couple of shortcuts to speed it along when you don't have half
a day to babysit the stove.

Now, here's what you gonna done need:
1 rotisserie chicken from your local grocery store, deboned
1 or 2 quarts of chicken stock
1 to 1 n'a half lbs. of sausage (smoked pork sausage is best, but
. it's your gumbo, use what you like)
Italian seasoning (likes McCormicks)
bay leaves
cayenne pepper
salt n' peppa (OR a good, quality cajun seasoning like Tony Chachere's)
1 large yellow onion, 1 green bell pepper, and two stalks of celery...chopped
. (sometimes I buy 'em already chopped in the produce section of the grocery store)
4 to 6 cloves of garlic...(I like the chopped garlic in a jar myself)
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup of cooking oil.....Olive oil is best, but corn or veggie oil will work
. just fine.
rice


In a good 3 to 4 qt pot, heat it over medium heat. add the oil and flour
and S T I R it good. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART....stirring the oil and
flour. This is your roux and it takes time and constant attention. This is one
reason us cajuns LOVE our gumbos, we KNOW the love it takes to start it.
When your roux is the color of a brown paper bag, add the onion, bell pepper,
and celery....KEEP STIRRING. When them veggies start getting clear, add the
sausage and slowly add your stock (if using just 1 quart of stock, also add
1 quart of water), stirring the whole time. Add the garlic, a tea spoon of
salt n' peppa (OR a table spoon of the cajun seasoning), and 2 table spoons
of the Italian seasonings...bring this to a boil for a few minuets, then to
a simmering, low heat. Now add a half tea spoon of cayenne pepper (if you want)
and the bay leaves. Now, cover and let this simmer for 15 minuets or so, then
taste it.... Here's where your gonna add any more seasonings to your taste.
Remember, as you add seasonings, let it simmer at least 10 minuets or so before
tasting again. When you gets it how you likes it, let it simmer some more,
maybe adding a little water as it cooks down. in 10 minuets or so, bring to a
boil add your chicken. Simmer it back down and start your rice in another pot.
When the rice is done, so is your gumbo! Serve it over that rice with some
french bread. That there is some good eatn' lemme done told YOU, I Gar-On-TEE !!!

Now, for anyone making a true, honest gumbo for the first time, watch this short video. Dis couyon makes it a 'little' different than mine, but you get the idea, you. "

Nortorious SG.......I didn't make myself completely clear.....it has NOTHING to do with the targets and everything to do with the surface, the angle of the shot and the distance. You shoot a gravely surface up close with a high velocity rifle, you will get splash-back, target or no target.

Blaming the targets is inappropriate, IMO.

The only time targets come into play is when you shoot them with airguns which they were not designed for. "

I will just say that if Trump had went the national emergency route to begin with he would have been trashed by the MSM, the never Trumpers, the Rinos, the Democrats and you, for not giving the legislative process the chance to work to fix the problem. This would be clear to you if you would just admit that there is nothing Trump could have done that would have appeased any of the above. It is not about the border, it is about un-electing Trump , one way or another.

I don't know what you and the Democrats are so worried about, Trump will be stopped by the sleeper Roberts and the open border dreams of the Democrats will become a reality. Do you think the SCOTUS, at the beginning of Trump's term would have upheld his national emergency? Which of those multiverses in the video I posted that you didn't watch are you living in?
I disagree with Trump on a few issues. I voted for him for most of the promises he was going to do. And I am pleased with his handling of most immigration issues and how he has handled the economy. Please stop misrpresenting me about Trump. It gets, old But then again, you will persist LOL. So just do what your instincts has you do if it pleases you

I am unhappy with Trump because for me, the 2A is way more important than a peeing contest over a wall.

And when people say "open borders". That has different meanings to different people. I think a wall is unnecessary and there are other things we should do (which I will not bother reposting for the umpteethh time). For some an open border is one with minimal or no checks to cross. That I am opposed to. We need point of entry and we need to beef those up since that is where the majority of drugs come through.

For some like Beto and Ocasio, open borders means to let people freely cross, which I am opposed to. "

ScottyNC replied to the thread Trump to go National Emergency. Pelosi eyes shining with happiness..
" The question is will the decision stand legally regardless of what he said on the White house lawn or what he has or hasn't done about calling an emergency until now.

"I could do the wall over a longer period of time. I didn't need to do this," Trump told reporters gathered in the White House Rose Garden on Friday, shortly before he signed a proclamation declaring the emergency. "But I'd rather do it much faster."
A bevy of groups lining up to challenge Trump's national emergency are likely to rely on the quote to suggest the "emergency" is a fiction. Federal courts closely studied Trump's own words and tweets to pick apart the administration's argument that the travel ban the president signed in early 2017 wasn't targeted at mostly Muslim countries.But in a decision upholding the ban, the Supreme Court said it had to consider not only Trump's statements but also "the authority of the presidency itself" in reviewing his actions.


But experts said the president's words, which were emblazoned on cable network chyrons most of Friday, are unlikely to bring down Trump's emergency declaration. The National Emergencies Act gives a president wide authority to define what an emergency is setting no hard rules over how urgent a problem must be or how potentially damaging.

And I will pre-emptive here: He did not expect Congress to go along with a bill financing a wall. So, he is playing politics like every other POTUS.

Also failed the US and not just me and you. But he has done more good for us then the last fool. But one thing for sure, our President has not only had to fight the left but his own party. Illegals cost us money big time and then we have the drugs. That also cost us money and much more. It seems that United States has lost the will to fight. "

Hold on a Second? SatCong has his own President? Is his President not my President? How has his President failed him when My President is doing his best to look out for my best interest?
SatCong better get with the program and use My President because apparently My President is doing a better Job than His President,,, Shame on SatCong for having a different Presidennt than the rest of us have! "

You get her gassed up, similar to what you do to yourself, you may need a buffer and spring as the 5.56 stuff may not be ideal. But then if the port is just right, it may be fine.
The caliber is a 6mm wildcat, adapted from the .223 case. Its powder capacity is about a grain more than a .223 case. I don't think there's an issue with the buffer. It's worked well with either .223 or 5.56 loads. Unfortunately, as a wildcat, there is no "published" load data. It's a lot of going with what others have used and "working up. "

" It may not even be about the wall in DT's eyes,,,, here's how I see it,,, DT has already done well at showing and proving that he can bring jobs, negotiate trade,, Bring Rocket Man to the table,, Bring Christmas and God back into not being a bad thing,,, and look out for the best interest of America and its Citizens,,, Now,,, We already know that through fear,, The Left/Dems bring the sheep of our Country to their knees,,, Create Fear and the weak cower down and give up their/our rights,,, No bump stock for you and we will keep you safe,,, no large soda for you and we will keep you healthy...

What DT is doing now is what I like to call,,, Pushing buttons,,, Dems are viscous and ugly in their ways but they are as dumb as it gets when it comes to DT's playing field,,, We will get the wall no matter what,,, he knows that and he keeps it in the spotlight because the longer he keeps it in the spotlight,,, the more the Dems expose themselves for the Tyrannous Abominations that they are,,, every day,,, more and more are questioning,, Why? Why are Crack Face Nancy and Scumer so hell bent on keeping me and my family unsafe? Why don't they care about my fear? Why do the dems want me and my family to lose their jobs? Why do the dems push so hard for me and my family to support the illegal alien as I break my back every day to only give my money in taxes to support some Monkey that is here just to rape and pillage Our Country?

Pushing buttons that make the swamp expose itself in such a clear way that even Stevie Wonder can see it,,, Therefore,, The Swamp will drain itself by default...

The one huge factor that I see that is the biggest hurdle,, is that MSM is not reporting the good and supporting the Tyrants,,, DT is also doing his best to expose them but it is an up hill battle that will take much more time,,, DT is playing the dems into a corner,,, like the rats that they are,, they will show their teeth....

" I do not like the idea of using the power of the President to declare a National Emergency in order to fix the problem of unfettered access to this country via the southern border.

I also do not like that lying politicians have promised to fix this issue for many years but instead have done everything they can to hamstring the Border Patrol and some even go so far as to promote abolishing ICE.

This should not be a political issue.

But whether you agree or disagree with a wall, it is hard to deny that there is a huge problem with allowing this unfettered access to continue.

I do not know if a wall is needed everywhere, and the President has said that himself. But, a combination of measures including walls, fences, and electronic measures as well as increased Border Patrol presence would seem to be in order. "

Still none of the fire-forming loads cycled--either not ejecting the empty case or not picking up the next round when it did eject. To make matter worse, none of the working loads cycled either. Halfway through the session, I gave up in frustration. All this happened with three different magazines. It is, IMO, short-stroking.

Chambering was fine when it fed by hand. I'm using my 5.56 Armalite lower and BCG that work 100% with the .5.56 upper. Shouldn't be an issue there.

I emailed the fellow who made produced the barrel, told him what it was doing, and asked for suggestion. He said my fireforming loads are still too light, but the working loads should have cycled. He asked a few questions and made a few suggestion. Everything checked out. He then asked me to measure the gas port size.

I dug through drill bits and whatnot, looking for something to measure the hole. I informed him a pin punch measuring .089 wanted to enter the port but would not. He said it seemed undersized slightly (He doesn't make the gas ports, only reams the chamber and cuts/threads the blanks), and for a 22" rifle-length barrel, it need to be .091-.093. He said to try a 3/16 (.093) drill bit to enlarge the hole. My research into AR gas port sizes seemed to agree.

He also said if that didn't resolve the issue to ship the upper to him and he'd get it working at no charge. He also emailed some loads for my bullets his ballistics program spit out, which are close to what I have loaded.

I'm hoping to get back to the range either Monday or Thursday to see if this resolves the issue. Fingers crossed.
Good luck. "

Gatopardo created the thread Glow In The Dark Gun Sights, "Glow-On" 8 Different Colors!.
" Just recently some gun manufacturers began to roll out handguns with gun sights in different colors, yellow, orange, green, red.
That is one step in the right direction.

Here are a few ways of color make life more efficient:

Color serves a purpose, without it we can't know if the fruit is ready to eat.
We know what snakes are poisonous and which ones fake it.
Butterflies wings can look like the eyes of an ow or a cat to deter bird's attacks.
Dawn colors are cold and brighten your spirit, dusk is warm and it invites you to rest.



We have 8 different colors for your gun sights, fishing lures, and other small projects, with the added benefit that they glow in the dark.
