Re: Opinions/comments on parking lot guy approching me?

A good exercise for you to do now would be to stand in front of a mirror and explain to that reasonable person in the mirror why you felt threatened in specific terms. This will help you out a lot if you are ever faced with a similar situation.

Re: North Texas motorists stoped by Feds to take DNA and blo

Maybe the problem is the LEO's serving in an unoffical/offical capicity. If they want to work off shift lose the uniform an car those are offical symbols of power and should only be used for offical business. This will never happen, it's de facto personnel funding for most departments. Allows them ...

Re: Tom Sotis AMOK! Edged Weapon Combat & Breaking Structure

We have one attendee that won't be able to attend at the last minute and he has graciously offered to pay his seat forward to any active duty military or full time LEO who wants to attend both days. First email to steve@combativestraininggroup.com gets it.

Re: MISTRIAL in Ft. Hood soldier's case for carrying AR15

After watching the video I'm a little confused as what he "interfered" with. The officer just walked up and snatched at his rifle without any sort of statement of intention. Isn't that basic definition assault by offensive contact? Granted the officer had the affirmative defense of presumably intend...

And if your friend can't conceal at all maybe he should consider open carry. :mrgreen:

Re: CC in a wheelchair

I had a double amputee vet in one of our classes last month and he did just fine with a standard inside-the-waistband strong side holster. I understand that might not be an option for your friend. Consider that within the context of being assaulted in a wheel chair it's very likely one is going to g...

Yes, but you can bet it will cost you at least a ride downtown to prove it.

Re: "Texas Gun Owners Divided on Best Aaproach to Legalizing

Chas, the "battle" is fairly plain to see, witness the "fifth column" accusation and unanswered "Mall Ninja" post above in this thread. There is definitely "friendly fire" being directed from 2A supporters towards OC supporters with the intent of marginalizing them. I personally haven't seen the OC ...

Re: "Texas Gun Owners Divided on Best Aaproach to Legalizing

So what we need to do is get control of things and start to generate good publicity. I think the "get control of things" part of that objective is not achievable if you mean to stop all OC demonstration. The cultural pressure is too strong, too many feel the need to "do something" at this point. Ho...

Re: "Texas Gun Owners Divided on Best Aaproach to Legalizing

Great discussion. I hate to get into a point-by-point quotathon on my first day here, but you bring up a lot. Here's my take on the situation. The concept that we will win because the law and the constitution are on our side will lead to our defeat. It is the overconfidence that statement leads to t...

Re: "Texas Gun Owners Divided on Best Aaproach to Legalizing

I'm outraged anytime someone brings a bucket of gas to a fire instead of a bucket of water. The radical OC idiots are not part of the solution, they are part of the problem. I can understand why you feel this way, certainly some OC activists are over the top. However, the question is how radical is...

Re: "Texas Gun Owners Divided on Best Aaproach to Legalizing

Thanks for the welcome Chas. I'm really not inferring anything. Organizing at the local level is the cure, period. My further suggestion is that instead of displaying "outrage" at OC activists, people concerned about 2A rights should recognize these events as justified blowback from unjust laws and ...

Re: "Texas Gun Owners Divided on Best Aaproach to Legalizing

But doing the right thing requires Legislative action. That action today is thwarted by a minority of the Legislature who is granted extraordinary power by the politically powerful in order to maintain their power. It will take some exception event to break the cycle. Texas is headed the same direc...

Re: "Texas Gun Owners Divided on Best Aaproach to Legalizing

I understand all the tactical and cultural sensitivity issues involved, but the bottom line is bearing arms is a constitutional right that shall not be infringed. IMHO it's only an issue here in Texas because we have made it illegal. I grew up in a state where OC was legal and I almost never saw any...

Re: 30.06 Map Mobile App?

Even better, have the app sound an alert and popup window when you approach an anti-gun establishment so you know to take your business elsewhere.
