Re: Effective Range of a .54 Cal Muzzleloader with Round Balls?

I have a Lyman GPR .50 with round ball twist, and I added the adjustable peep sight. I get decent groups (pie plate size and less) at 100 yds.

Re: Why not a card/tie-in to buy gun in Texas?

A couple of Decembers ago Cabelas had a sale on a Kimber I wanted. To get the sale price, I had to order online for store pickup. When I went in to pick it up, the system was down--I am not sure if their system or NCIS but they were telling customers that it would be a couple of hours to run backgr...

Re: Public hearings on more Texas gun control laws

I know concealed carry was not restricted at the Capitol, can I assume open carry is not restricted either?

Ignorance by non-gun people is always our biggest enemy. Congrats for helping, one guy at a time.

Re: Why you should always carry.

"wearing a surgical face mask"

A lot of people are doing this now with the virus scares. Probably wouldn't have been on guard seeing someone enter wearing one. Now, we should be.

Re: TX: No place but Austin

:iagree: I work with a charity that provides help and support for those that are marginalized, but want to change and seek help getting out of a bad spot. And that's the key - the individual has to want to change. Like ELB described, I've seen too many who cannot or will not change and you can't do ...

Re: Carry pistol failure

I feel your pain. I was showing a friend my EDC at the range after I had fired some rounds. I handed him the pistol and on his first shot, the round failed to eject. Turned out the extractor tang picked that exact time to break off, rendering the pistol single shot. Just glad it didn't happen when I...

Re: Kobe Bryant and Daughter Killed in Helicopter Crash

Helicopter was granted an exception to fly that day. Was the risk really worth it? Technically not true. The helo asked for Special VFR. This is not an exception to flight rules, it is an established procedure. Helos are granted a lot of latitude for flying in marginal conditions because they are h...

Re: When America understood warship building

You can add Halsey to the list. He foresaw the power of the aircraft carrier and promoted them over BBs. He even went so far as to get himself sent to flight training as a Navy Captain to learn about aircraft and their operations.

Re: Weird electrical issues at my home!

Check all breakers? Outlets are sometimes on different breakers than lights. Also, I've lost TVs and other electronics to lightning - now there's weird electricity.

Re: Looking for a financial planner

Check out Scott Burns, financial columnist for the Dallas Morning News, and his Couch Potato Portfolio. Makes a lot of sense and you don't have to pay an agent who only works for commissions. If you do decide to go to a financial adviser, make sure it someone you pay to look after your interest (the...
