Re: This is why I love Ted Nugent.

I had a nice, long sit-down conversation with the man once, totally out of the blue. I went up to him at an airport, waiting on our plane. Totally approachable guy. I only asked to shake his hand but he grabbed mine, said “sit down, brother. Talk to me a while.” I will attest that he is one of the f...

Re: Brookline Massachusetts Wants to Register Security Camera Owners

They have the optional registration here in Corpus Christi, too. I thought, “great idea!”, and then read all the fine print saying I would then be “required” to give access when requested. Nay, I say! I’ve given video to investigating officers twice, as well as an arson investigator because it was t...

Re: Alligator defense question

I have no personal experience in this, but an old coworker used to hunt alligators, legally. He only used a crossbow since “no bullet is effective”, he’d say. His scary story was when on a Jon boat, he inadvertently came too close to a nesting mama gator. It nearly broke the boat in half. Caught off...

Re: Medical Facilities

I think I've visited an extraordinary number of medical facilities as of late, both for myself and my folks, and I made a conscious effort to observe the many differences. First off - I saw that most doctor's offices I visited inside a medical building are not posted and stand alone offices are post...

Re: Arizona Timeline

I did the Arizona cwp 3 years ago. 60 days exactly to my mailbox. I got it because it was only $60, they accepted a copy of my chl-100 for training, and it’s good to have a backup. At the time, it added a couple states for me. Real smooth process.

Re: TX: TSA misses handgun, owner turns self in

Sadly, this happens more often than any one person knows. I spent many years at the airport observing security checkpoints. Pre-TSA was a joke I frequently passed with prohibited items undetected (as a test!). TSA brought the technology and it could be 100% effective if it weren't for the human fact...

Re: OK: Woman shoots ex-boyfriend-stalker-invader

Sounds almost identical to a friend of mine’s incident. The ex boyfriend broke in via a window, girlfriend locked herself in the bathroom, my friend hit the ex 5 times with .357 magnum and the guy still crawled to the bathroom and ripped the door off the hinges before passing out from blood loss. PC...

Re: Poll: Nonresident Out of State License

I got an Arizona mainly because it was cheap and they accepted my Texas training. Washington I got because they don't recognize Texas, I have friends to visit there, and it was $45, took 15 minutes at a sheriff's office and arrived 60 days later. Texas gained more states recently so I may let the Ar...

Re: Wtb holster

I actually just found an XDM hard case with all the essentials inside when helping a friend move into a rental house. Everything inside except the gun! No one claimed it and I aquired it. Only the mag loader and mag holder fits my XD40. The rest needs a good home. PM me if you want it. Oh and there’...

Re: R. Lee Ermey has passed away.

Y’all do know this is another one of those celebrity death hoaxes, right? Just google his name and append “snopes”, “hoax” or “false” to it. Wow. Couple hours ago even snopes still said it was false - from the first time. Now I looked and it’s all over every news service AND snopes. Fooled me twice.

Re: Fat Guy Carry...

Ohh yeah owb is more comfortable to me. I use a fobus for the .380 and and .40 and also a belt slide holster for each of those too. The belt slide keeps the gun snug against the body and conceals a little better. The fobus are both paddles which allows you to navigate position regardless of belt loo...

Re: Fat Guy Carry...

I like options. I prefer owb with an untucked shirt. When I can’t do that I carry a Berretta Pico in the front pocket. I can conceal a “big” gun iwb at 4 o’clock comfortably, as well. Sure I’m gonna feel it sometimes. In all cases I carry a spare mag in a horizontal knife case owb on the weak side. ...

Re: QUALS FOR LEOSA for retired military

I just did the Firearm Proficiency with these guys last November. I had retired city and federal guys in my class with me. If you're near San Antonio this is an easy, quick qualification. http://www.tac-safe.com/chl-san-antonio-concealed-handgun-san-antonio-texas-chl/law-enforcement-security-guard-t...
