Re: Attempted robbery at Dixie Gun and Pawn: 1911 saves the day!

This is really going to get good when it is determined that he was shooting a Kimber Solo, or an STI 2011 in 9mm.

Re: HB375 constitutional carry getting media attention.

in many of the states you can chose to get a permit. I honestly don't have an opinion on Constitution carry. What I sort of have a problem with is Texas being the last state to pass it. lol Dont worry...Texas won't be last. We will at least be ahead of California, New York, and DC! From what I can ...

Re: HB375 constitutional carry getting media attention.

One concern I would have about constitutional carry would be some people carrying that do not have any training and have no idea what they are doing. I understand it is our constitutional right as it is. Just not necessarily lawful to do so without an LTC. I see the value in the classroom and quali...

Re: I have to vent a little

Sorry about that. In my defense, I thought you gave up and were leaving when you got on the phone... The price I heard was better than I had negotiated 20 minutes earlier and I was in a hurry so offered the same. just kidding! But it doesn't sound like the seller knew you had accepted the deal. OK,...

Re: HB375 constitutional carry getting media attention.

I'm not sure what the problem is with it when several more states just implemented it...what's up Texas? are we going to be last? I am being brutally honest here, I acknowledge that I am somewhat selfish in my thinking. With a permitted system, I still have the ability to protect myself. I don't li...

Re: HB375 constitutional carry getting media attention.

While this bill is DOA, it's good that it's getting media attention. Let the Anti's spend political capital on defeating this one. A tactic that the other side has employed over and over (successfully) is to introduce things that go way further than you actually want to get at this time, then the &q...

Re: Legislation Scheduling?

While it's frustrating to watch good bills languish in committee and often have the clock run out on them, I'll take our part time legislature over a legislature that strips freedom full time. Even in Texas, take a look at all bills passed this session and lump them into one of three bins: Bin 1, al...

Re: RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SMALL COMPACT SEMI FOR PETITE LADY

As has been stated already, the P938/238s are expensive, but you will not find a better small pistol out there. Buying a cheaper pistol and then doing a trigger job to make it somewhat close to the Sig trigger will make up most of the difference in price. For the record, I'm not a Sig fan, the P938 ...

Chase,
If you go with shirts, I'm certain that several dozen would be sold at the monthly USPSA/IDPA matches are PSC.

Re: Electoral college 2016 status Trump 268 v Clinton 160

I also just now heard that Suprun resigned from the Texas GOP after casting his vote. Democratic operative Suprin resigned from the GOP? Guess he's moving on to his next dishonest endeavor. He's teaming up with Brian Williams and Hillary Clinton to do a speaking tour so they can address all of the ...

Re: Gun Control Supporters Are Just This Nasty And Threatening

Again, how is this harassment or intimidation? In this instance alone (do not look at anything else because we have 0 facts about any other letters) how is it harassment? How is this any different than a LDS or Jehovah's Witness coming to your door to tell you that you are living in sin? Is it poor...

Re: Workplace Violence Policy

Run, Hide, Fight is actually the standard for active shooter training here in the US. Even if you are armed, run/hide/fight is a very reasonable approach.

In Europe, they are teaching Run/hide/report. :banghead:
