Re: Off The Beaten Path - Belton, TX

In the early 1880s the first railroad, the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe, reached the town, and the Missouri, Kansas and Texas was built through in 1882.

Re: HB 302/SB 472 - Owners/Guests/Tenants of Condos cannot be barred from Carrying

The condo management or association cannot legally forbid carrying for the...

Re: The importance of Pre-existing Knowledge for SD

Had I been smarter when I started out training seriously for SD I would have started a book where I put the various SD articles I've read, training certificates, etc. for exactly this purpose.

Re: CC question towards mall policy?

As far as open air malls, such as the domain or outlets. The domain has multiple ways to enter, let alone there are 3 parts to the domain. None of which I have seen any 30.06/30.07 signs, only 51% and such for clubs and bars. So legally I can conceal carry? Or do I follow the ‘no firearms/weapon ru...

Re: Another Meme Thread

https://i.imgur.com/GXDMmeo.jpg That photo came from a pretty intense movie. If you've never seen Sicario , it's very good. (There is more than one movie by this name, the one I refer to has Benicio Del Toro in it). Excellent action movie. Make sure you have a quality sound system, or even better, ...

Not a meme per se, but interesting.

This is a billboard on I-35N just north of New Braunfels.

There's (at least) one on I-10 near Seguin too.

Re: Looking for a safe recommendation

I'm in the same boat. Unfortunately I live in an apartment so getting a massive heavy safe is probably out of the question, as is bolting one to the floor. I only need enough room for 1 rifle and a few hand guns. For now anyway, I'd like something good to deter thieves but also somewhat fire safe. ...
