A ballistics expert would be nice.

Just a thought.

Just found this, Eric. Excellent idea, and a fantastic contribution to the site.

Both, for different reasons.

lol.

How 10mm might end the world
The kool-aid is spiked.

Glock versus 1911
Both, for different reasons.

Shotgun, Rifle, or Pistol for home defense
All three, don't be a moron.

Isosceles versus Weaver
Whatever works for whoever.

Clips and Magazines
Whatever works for you.

Why expensive guns come in cheap boxes
The world may never know.

Concealing/carrying in restricted areas without being caught
Do not pass go, do not collect 200$

Whether or not a "no weapons" sign was properly displayed
For legal purposes they are always properly displayed.
But not when I don't see em.
Getting out of speeding tickets
HA, don't speed?
How to get a restraining order and/or stalking charges dropped
Go get laid.
How to make my Glock fully automatic
1. Go to your Glock armorer. 2. Tell him you're an idiot.
3. Realize that you're never going to accomplish anything in life.
When it is acceptable to brandish or threaten with a firearm
Only when your willing to use it and accept the consequences that you will be spending the rest of your life and possibly many other lives stuck in a very small padded or concrete room.
Personally, I like the padded room. Good luck.
Don't worry I am an expert in DA. I've got these questions covered.

I submitted a thread and it has not been posted or answered yet. That was about 2-3 weeks ago.

Any reasons why it hasn't been addressed?

Is this the right place to make suggestions for new GATE forums?

If so...

I'd like to suggest a GATE Forum on practical semi-armed/ disarmed/unarmed self-defense (just one forum).

OK, these are my categories I just created.

Semi-armed: Includes anything you could take into a generic 'gun-free zone' - kubotans, OC spray, etc... excluding knives (or only peripherally including them), as we have a great forum for that already.

Disarmed: Includes anything you could carry past the security checkpoint of a typical courthouse or airport - standard canes, walking sticks, spontaneous weapons of opportunity (chairs, Starbucks coffee mugs, sporks, whatever).

Unarmed: Hands and feet.


We have a great forum on Knife-fighting, and one for self-defense with firearms. Both of those are run by excellent leaders of their respective specialties, and I don't want to take anything away from them. I'd just like some expert advice on how to best prepare myself for when I can't have a knife or gun with me.

...now that I have found this - I know the system better and wouldn't have bothered you via PM. Thanks.

Is only the originator of a thread allowed to post in that thread after it is answered by the Expert de jure?

I have nothing to gain from this type of forum, please delete my account. An expert is not always correct, because a team of experts knows more than one individual.

That is a great idea. The reason for my question here is after posting my question on GATE I received no conformation or acknowledgment that my post was received. That was several weeks ago no answer, no hey we got your question nothing. I was starting to think I had done something wrong and had been banished from the forum.

Like Aquagear, I attempted to ask a question (regarding lefthand-friendly Glocks) and never saw it posted nor did I receive any message as to why it was not cleared by a moderator.

All Glocks are left hand friendly right out of the box.

How so? None of the ones I have seen (17, 19, 22, 23, 26, 27, 30, 34, 36) have any controls on the right side of the frame (mag release, slide release).

The mag release is far easier to use for lefty's than it is for righty's by using your trigger or social finger.

None of my glocks am I able to drop the mag right handed without changing my grip..

Same for the slide STOP using your trigger finger if you choose to drop the slide that way.. I always use the over hand method because its the same technique on every semi-auto handgun.

Oh crap. Mas is going to be pissed with me. I didn't realize that GATE posts weren't visible until the expert answers, so I "tried" to post my question 3 or 4 times today thinking that it wasn't showing up b/c of a problem with Tapatalk (mobile forum app). I wish I had read this thread first. Newb mistake!

Well, I bought a Gen 4 Model 23; I'll swap the mag release to the correct side for me and see how it goes.

Eric, GATE is a great source of information.

Speaking for myself and (I'm sure) a lot of other GT members we don't expect the experts to have all the answers to every question. We value their experience and wisdom and appreciate the fine work they do on our behalf.

Good show, mate!
