Re: Distressed about lack of Constitutional Carry Support (Long)

It's already been done. Check out the web page of the group who shall not be named (Voldemort). The outcome is they ask you to leave, and you either leave or get arrested. The point is, permitless carry for long guns already exists in Texas. A previous post said "go all the way and let you car...

Re: Ghost Guns

Ghost guns refer to the 80% kits that are sold online. The lower receiver is only milled out to 80% completion. You have to finish the lower by drilling holes and removing material. These are available for both rifles and pistols. A lower receiver that is completely milled but you add the trigger as...

Re: It is now time to open Texas 100%

HEB for instance has taken a different stance. They are masks recommended. They are attempting to appear politically correct to the maskers, while not running off the anti-maskers. Their policy means they don't truly buy into the "mask science" Actually, their policy means that they don't...

Re: Let’s talk .22 pistols

Friends don't let friends buy Taurus... Unless it is the TX22! I have a few hundred rounds through mine. I got it earlier this year, right before Covid shut some of the ranges down. I fired many brands of .22lr through it, mostly bulk ammo that I scrounged for during the great .22lr shortage. It fed...

Re: Pasture Gun?

A 30/30 lever gun is usually what I keep handy when filling feeders and stuff out on the lease.

Re: Report expired paper tags

Remember, there is currently a temporary waiver in place for tags due to Covid-19. Your neighbor may have driven with expired tags anyway, but right now she is good. Personally, I would drop the pettiness and worry about my own business... let the history between you to be history.

Re: Gov of TX issues mask order!?!

Why are we seeing the spike now? Some say Memorial Day gatherings, some say protests, some say bars. I have a feeling that all of these may have contributed. My neighbor and his whole family was very active in local area protests, and he told me yesterday that they are having some symptoms. A guy t...

Re: Gov of TX issues mask order!?!

We were told that the purpose of the restrictions was to flatten the curve, to avoid overwhelming the hospitals. OK, we did that. Now, I'm not sure what the goal is. No new cases? I'm not sure what the goal of the restrictions could be. I'm not aware of a single place where the hospitals are close ...
