Re: Ever looked down a gun barrel held in an angry hand?

Ever looked down a gun barrel held in the hand of someone so angry they were shaking? Back in ‘79 I needed a second job and responded to a help wanted ad for sales. Turns out it was a door to door sales job that was kinda slimy. Anyway the script was to leave a sales presentation in the form of a c...

Re: Anti drone equipment

Further update... well our talking to them may have not been the magic bullet... my wife reports she saw HPD at that house a few weeks ago and that HPD was also talking to another neighbor explaining “if a drone lands in your yard you have every right to keep it”... sounds like creeper-peeper should...

Anti drone equipment

Texas has a statute which prohibits capturing images from drones except under very limited circumstances “Texas Use of Unmanned Aircraft statute (Texas Government Code 423)”.

Re: Auto theft discourager

I’d be worried about the residual irritants left in my vehicle afterwards. Invest in a solid car alarm not one of those cheap ones…. I would rather deal with cleaning up the car I still have than going through all the time and thousands of dollars in expense in replacing one that was stolen. The ca...

Auto theft discourager

Long, long ago (1990s) there were ads in shotgun news for tear gas dispensers that could be electrically activated to encourage anyone breaking into your car and tripping your car alarm or breaking into your house and tripping your house alarm to vacate the car or house. I such a thing still possibl...

Re: Government shutdown

FWIW, this president will not be closing the Smithsonian, or blocking off national monuments during the shutdown. So there's that. What a farce that was... grandstanding to make it as inconvenient as possible on the public.... Can we please send all th3 non essential federal employees home, and let...

Re: HB 497 - Add Types and Uses of Ammunition to Required LTC Course Curriculum

It is the lack of specificity that bothers me... is this an education requirement and if so what is the text of said education or is it a limitation of what can be used to qualify? Thank you

Why a handgun is your last line of defense

See this video https://www.facebook.com/WSYXABC6/videos/10160093961445215/ Note that the perp absorbs 5 or 6 rounds from a 38 or 357 and a 380 or 9 mm and doesn’t even slow down... What is that quote? The only reason you should be in a gun fight with a handgun is to fight your way back to the rifle ...
