Re: Bonnie and Clyde walk into a BAR...*

Back in the 90's I worked at a company (New Micros) headquartered in the old Eagle Ford schoolhouse, where Bonnie Parker went to school. There had been several suicides in the building, and locals often shot at the structure. I worked into the wee hours many nights. Visibility out the front door was...

Re: DPS Body Cam Footage Confirms Dennis Bonnen Lies

Let me be perfectly clear. Anyone behaving that way in my neighborhood- and I mean anyone peacefully and politely advocating the second amendment - will be immediately approached. We know how to deal with his kind. Not five miles from here, a little Bar-B-Que restaurant serves what every single citi...

What is this NFL and Supper Bowl of which you speak?
Good one! Truthfully, the game means so little to me, i’m not sure when it is. If I had to guess, i’d say it was this weekend. But Saturday or Sunday?

Not sure. I don’t watch TV. Got more interesting things to do. I don’t have time for it.

Re: Interesting question involving both 1st & 2nd Amendment

I know several Cossacks, but I didn’t know they were members until after that horrid shootout.

My knee jerk is to despise gangs. On the other hand, the only Cossacks I know wouldn’t trigger the slightest concern in a dark alley. Maybe the local Cossacks “gang” didn’t fit the mold.

Re: CA: Rep suggests forceful confiscation with nukes

Been a while since I've posted, and here I show up like a bad penny and find something I've been pondering lately. Back in the good old days, when every cowpoke on TV packed a Colt and the term "drive-by shooting" had never been heard, philosophies like socialism weren't held in much higher regard t...

Since the House has the power of the purse (and taxation), I guess Pelosi made him do it. :evil2:

Re: FBI Agent has ND

All of my short pull trigger/no safety ideas remain in place. I'm also the type to worry about slide-to-frame fit when the sear is in the frame, and the thing it's supposed to keep a grip on is in the slide. Polymer frames flex. Watch a slow motion video of a Glock discharging. Along with all my oth...

Re: Yelp* reviews for businesses that post 30.06 and/or 30.07

Yelp has a small business we own at the wrong address, and there is no correcting it. I even tried to locate their registered agent, which should be easy for any corporation, but I couldn't. Or I could, but they wouldn't admit I'd knocked on the right door. Yelp, Inc. was there in the California bus...

Re: Manager at Texas Whataburger denies service to detective because of his gun

I still like The Freddie’s notice. A little sign by the door saying for the comfort of all their customers, they respectfully request their patrons refrain from open carry. Or something like that.

Re: Carry at gun show

Good question, but a gun show is like any other place in the world. Property owners have their rights, and we must respect them. There is the complication that many gun shows take place on public property, where lawful carry should not be discouraged, but in general the rules for carry at a gun show...

Re: Can We All Have Differences of Opinion?

Voltaire’s ideal of defending contrary opinion to the death is canon, but I believe we all agree he never shot a Glock.

Re: Thrall, Texas, Police Chief Responds to Art Acevedo

Using the “color of office” to intimidate is the crime of official oppression. This is really incredible.
