Re: Keep an eye on Virginia

So, to sum up what I read about today: 1. The new Democratic majority in control of the Virginia state legislature and the Governor's mansion introduced several bills that are anti-gun. 2. Many Virginians were against the proposed bills. 3. 90% of the Virginia counties passed resolutions against the...

Re: EDC knife

I am finally in the market for another EDC knife. I made the dumb mistake of leaving on the trailer hitch after trimming some wire to fix the lights. Well, to be technical, leaving on the hitch wasn't the dumb part. Driving off with it left there was. Anyway, I have generally preferred Cold Steel kn...

Re: Definition of "Premises" Regarding 51% Restaurants

There has been an on-going discussion for years over which definition of premises will apply to what is a licensed premise. There is a history of the ABC definition applying and people being arrested for unlawfully carrying in a licensed premise for having a pistol in the parking lot of a bar. But, ...

Re: TX: Insane truck crash video in Lubbock Co.

In spite of all the research into autonomous vehicles and safety systems like pre-collision braking, there is still no commodity thermal/infrared/'sonar'/radar system for 'seeing' in adverse conditions being prototyped or tested for commercial vehicles? There sure are. Here is one I found in a quic...

Re: Church shooting in Tarrant County - White Settlement

Sounds to me like the shooter picked the wrong church and this one was prepared with an armed security team. From the article: A church leader starts telling people to quiet down and be seated. "Everything is under control. Our security team did everything they needed to do," the person said. There ...

Re: G.W. Bush Library & CHL

I always thought the libraries were private property and paid for by the outgoing president himself. Silly me. Of course it's our tax dollars paying for it. My understanding is the construction is paid for by donations, but the upkeep is paid for by the fed. When I read the web page, it says the co...

Re: Ruger addressed my 10mm quip!

I think Springfield Armory just did us all a favor by having the XDm chambered in 10mm, and prices are good. But Glock is due some credit for making the G20 and proving there's a market. My quip in the second question was due to Ruger hyping the recoil reducing features of the American. The 9mm and...

Re: "Criminal Motorcycle Gang" and LTC

Above all. 46.15(b)(6) make anything that 46.02 says non applicable to an LTC holder, so it does not matter what one word of it says. I disagree. In general, this is the rule and you would be correct. But there is two narrow cases where 46.02 does apply to to an LTC. I do not know if either is appl...

Re: Jury Convicts Jefferson City Man of False Information in 2 Attempts to Purchase Guns

While I like the Project Guardian idea and I am glad to see someone followed up on the complaint and false information, there is a problem with claiming this is part of the project. The crime occurred in late 2017 and early 2018. The mother's complaint came in March 2018. For the conviction to have ...

Re: Horowitz report

I think Horowitz was more concerned about his job security than doing his job. And with his watered down report, it seems obvious that he doesn't want his lack of action brought into question. All his report amounts to is some slaps on the wrists of a few that were already implicated. Since James C...

Re: Glock 44 - .22 LR pistol

I'd like to use one of my GSSF coupons for one of these. I hope they put it into the program. GT Distributors is currently advertising them for pre-orders. They are asking $359 for both public and blue label pricing. Based on that, I doubt the GSSF would be a different price, but I admit not knowin...
