Concealed Carry Corner: How Much Ammo Should You Carry Daily?

I’ve seen this debate online a few different times. People saying they either need little to no ammo or 17 back up magazines on their person at all times.

Kobo Glo Multitouch

Hi I just got a hand-me down Kobo Glo that I would like to use to read scanned pdfs. It would be sooo much better if it would pinch /zoom etc. Firmware is 4.13.12638. I found a few old pages on patching the Glo with much older firmware. So.. Is this possible with recent firmware? Can firmware be downgraded to a much older version that had patches for multitouch? Should i just forget about it. BTW I am a seasoned Linux user just not sure what my options are. TIA Glenn

Knock It Off and Protect the NRA Wall

Opinion by Carrie Lightfoot Knock It Off and Protect the NRA Wall USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- I’m surprised and disappointed at how quickly and blindly so many grab on to the misinformation about the NRA that’s put forth and paid for by Bloomberg and those foaming at the mouth to take away our Second Amendment. If you didn’t know, they are the source of all the lies that we see flooding the news. This tactic of intentionally spreading misinformation to discredit an enemy is no different from what...

Holster wars

I find this to be generally true: in this day and age, leather is a sexual preference, not a valid holster material. Look, I get it. A custom made, tooled leather holster is classic. Its pure sexiness (see? Sexual preference.). Even for CCW use, its suboptimal, for a hundred different reasons that people in the training community (you know, people that actually practice this shit) have belabored. If youre still wearing a leather holster, thats fine, just acknowledge your fetish. Not the part abo...

Home Page Load Times

I just got a Clara HD last weekend. I mainly read fan fiction in epub format and have about 3000 'books' loaded on. However, I'm finding the load times from the home page to be really slow. Over a minute slow. Whenever I click on either My Books or My Collections it takes over a minute to load these pages, long enough for me to actually wonder if I clicked it.

Lent: Jo Walton's new novel is Dante's Groundhog Day
