The facts will continue to come out over the instance.

RIP Chris Kyle.
Ventura is a scumbag:

From the sounds of it, the shooter was there for PTSD therapy.

But yea, I think you summed up about 90% of the shootings in the USA - need for asshole control. People in this country need to stop solving their problems with guns - of course much of that violence is gang related.

Kyle's defense requested the lawsuit be dismissed and a judge felt there was enough to Ventura's side of the story (including witness(es)) to move the litigation forward, so it was not dismissed. I have no dog in the fight, but Kyle was being sued for slander/defamation and at least one person there that night said it never happened. Links to stories reported in the news doesn't make truth. The truth is.

In honor of Chris Kyle I will respond one more time. Did you read the comments from the people at the wake at the end of the link? If you did and can still have any doubts about Ventura's action at this event, then you need to evaluate your reasoning ability and read up on the history and previous actions and statements by the narcissist asshole Ventura.

What I read was there was one person willing to testify the event occurred, that they heard what Kyle claims Ventura said and saw Kyle hit Ventura, out of all the people there. I also read that there were SEALS/SEAL/BUD trainer and owner of the bar that was/were there willing to testify that it did not occur. I think taking in as much as I can and making an informed decision is rational. I think making a decision based on Internet comments likely is not rational decision making. BTW, I have not made a decision as to what happened because as far as I can tell there is one witness willing to testify on one side and at least one or more on the other side willing to testify. I am not defending either person, just reiterating there are witnesses on both sides, and more than one side to the story.

Good call.
I've done a bunch of stuff to mine, but to be honest, the only thing it NEEDED was the grip safety.

I hear older models had common failures - slides would crack or something. Is there a serial # cutoff, or just need to make wure warrantee work was done?

I must say, I need to look into that EAA Witness hunter. Probably a good bit cheaper than the DE.

Pretty sure that was on some 10mm with an alloy frame. I recall hearing about it when I bought my DE in '92. The issue had been sorted out for a while by that time.
