Re: OAL with folding stock -folded or unfolded in TX?

Also remember that the law going into effect September 1st that any firearm or silencer the atf says doesn't need a stamp will be legal.

Re: Bill: HB 2009. No more Hunter ed for vets

Lol, you old Coors.
I'm waiting to find out how they will handle enforcement. Requiring you to carry dd214 would be a bit much.

Re: Did we get shut out this year

Knife law is signed today and in effect 9/1 Since knives are most definitely a 2 A item, getting rid of 90% of the carry restrictions on them makes this year not a shut out in my opinion. Time to upgrade my large cold steel espada to an XL in the new powder steel. :txflag: Ooh, and a REAL Bowie knif...

Re: Sign to Support Property Tax Reform - Lt. Gov. Patrick

True, I expected that, but it didn't look like the bill restricted the court to just the one fight. I just don't know if a county on one side and school district on the other would qualify for being similar enough for the above poster to have a case. Looks like those population limits they put in ar...

Re: Bushnell Trophy TRS-25 Red Dot $25 after rebate

I'm an elitist so Bushnell scopes really aren't on my list, but their red dot is just hands down the best cheap optic out there. Trs25 for the plinkers, Leupold vx 6 for the big boys, heh.

Re: Sign to Support Property Tax Reform - Lt. Gov. Patrick

Just what "property tax relief" is being proposed? Counties use property taxes like an ATM. It's nuts. I put up a little carport to park my tractor under: pow, here comes the county making me pay annual property taxes on it. We also pay "double taxes." We live in one county and pay full property ta...

Re: Bushnell Trophy TRS-25 Red Dot $25 after rebate

Still gonna email them first, before I buy lol. I'll post here when I get a response. Also, this is the model without a riser, so make sure it's what you need. With the riser adds $30. Gave this to my dad to put on his AR and last week we used it to make the easiest damn hits on a steel plate at 300...

Re: Bushnell Trophy TRS-25 Red Dot $25 after rebate

Probably Wrong. Rebate only applies to scopes and other high dollar trophy line, not red dots.
I would seriously contact them and ask first.

Re: HB 1819 makes shockwave legal

But the shockwave isn't just a short stock, it also brings the barrel down to 14 inches while even a folder shotgun must still have a 18+. Effectively it's the same loophole as a pistol AR using a "arm brace" stock. If we can get rid of NFA and GCA of course everything would change, hehe. Guess my l...

Re: HB 1819 makes shockwave legal

I agree it has many practical downsides, but I can also easily see where such a compact package could fill some important niches. If things ever go completely to hell nobody will care about NFA, but until then a legal SBS has its place. It isn't going deer hunting with me but might get a concealed p...
