Re: 357, 357 mag and 38

My understanding is that any .357 magnum revolver can also shoot .38 rounds; is that accurate? .38 Special, yes, upon which the .357 Mag was based - there are a bunch of .38 cartridges (.38 S&W, .38 Short Colt, .38 Long Colt, etc) out there, so being specific is important. Is there a difference bet...

357, 357 mag and 38

My understanding is that any .357 magnum revolver can also shoot .38 rounds; is that accurate?

Is there a difference between a .357 and .357 magnum revolver, or are those the same thing?
If there is a difference, can a .357 revolver (not a magnum) also shoot .38s?

Re: Allen Event Center posted 06 & 07

Sorry this is a few days late and couple dollars short, but a friend and I went to the gun show at the Allen Event Center two weekends ago and upon entering saw two 06 & 07 signs as we paid. The Texas3006.com web site also says the signs are invalid. Who do we need to contact to get them to obey th...

Electrician advice - power cord for table saw and vac

I have a portable table saw that I use with a small shop-vac for dust collection. Currently, I plug both the saw and the vac into the same extension cord and turn them both on/off individually. While cleaning the dust out from underneath the saw recently, I noticed that there is about a foot of powe...

I left IDPA and having much more fun shooting protection type matches, some with 2nd gun, never go back, 1 IPSC match opened my eyes to the dumb rules. To me I see more leaving than new shooters joining.
What do you mean by "protection type matches"?

Priorities for 2019 legislative session

My thoughts for those things that would have the most significant impact on my day-to-day carry, in priority order: 1.Expand the protection that prohibits a person from being fired just for having a gun in their locked car to also cover licensed carry on the premises, even while at work. In other wo...

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

How did you find out what number you are on the list? I called them. There was a problem with documents from several of my past classes not uploading correctly, so they didn't have an official record that I met the four-class requirement. I called them to get that straightened out and they told me ...

How many acres needed for shooting?

My wife are getting to the age that we're starting to talk about what's "next" in our lives. One thing we've been talking about is buying some acreage that would allow me to setup a small range for my personal use and an occasional shooting and/or LTC class. Someone once told me - and I don't know w...

Re: On line classes have started

The form seems to imply that the proficiency is separate from the instruction - two different signatures to indicate you spent 1-2 hours in instruction, then did the proficiency. I could be wrong, of course, but that's the way the form comes across to me. Also, I would hardly consider just shooting ...

Re: On line classes have started

The form states 1 - 2 hours. I was interested mainly in requirements as to content. I can't open the Online Course Provider Course Outline (PDF) - the password must be different vs. the "normal" course outline. I'll check my notes when I get home, but I don't remember any specifics being discussed.

Re: On line classes have started

It's been a long time since the renewal class in August, but I don't remember there being any specific requirements for the range instruction portion. Are there?
