Re: Know Your Target and What’s In-Between

I don't think he actually hit the hood, but the blast burned the paint off. I was out with someone several years ago, and somebody started to brace their rifle on the car roof to shoot over it, and he stopped them and advised what would happen. He know from personal experience, it seems. Real: http...

You're not alone. This forum seems to enjoy intentionally misleading and/or deliberately vague thread titles.
Also called clickbait.

Re: TX: Houston criminals get their guns from cars not gun stores

Perhaps Chief Acevedo would advocate the repeal of TPC 46.035 so that LTC holders would have fewer occasions where they would need to leave their EDC in their car/truck. :iagree: But we're too late. Now that TX has been a purple (half red/half blue) state for a while, most handgun laws are Californ...

Re: LTC License Validation Website

I'm not entering my number into that thing since I know it's valid. However, for those that have, after you enter it what happens? Does it only indicate validity or does it also give any other personal information? If it does I don't like that AT ALL. It won't take long for someone to set something...

Re: DPS Affidavit: Poncho Nevarez Dropped his Cocaine

I was excited about his departure, but looking up his voting record - the man is an anomaly. I don't get why he votes yes on some bills for our side, and no on others. What's his angle? Could also be to game the NRA rating system. Give just enough votes for pro-gun legislation when it is obvious th...

Re: Special Election Today

Put me down with the same tally as the OP. AND, a big fat no on a $10million (10,000,000) bond to give to the high school. I'm afraid I will be in the minority on that one and my property taxes will go up some more. :banghead: $10m? That is small potatoes! On my ballot were nearly half a billion in...

Re: Austin City Limits Festival

I too would love to know what charge they would arrest you for. This is taking place in Zilker park, which last time I checked was owned by the taxpayers. It is not a prohibited location by statute so 30.06/7 should not apply.

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

The sound bite I'm hearing has the jury foreman saying "No outbursts" after the verdict was read. Since when does the jury foreman control the courtroom? This is outrageous. I read that it was a bailiff who made that statement. That makes a heck of alot more sense. https://www.cnn.com/us/live-news/...
