Re: Looking for a new holster and belt for G19 EDC

I have carried a Glock 19 AIWB for years now with the Raven Vanguard 2. It is the most comfortable, concealable, accessible IWB holster I've ever had, and it's not very expensive. Get one with a wing (or as Raven calls it, a "claw"). I see they now offer the "claw" as part of the...

TX: Lt Gov Patrick says not enough Senate votes to pass Con Carry

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick says Senate currently lacks the votes to pass permitless carry of handguns It takes 18 votes in the Senate to pass a bill. There are 18 Republican senators. This should be a no-brainer. The way the article quotes Patrick it appears the "law enforcement community"...

Re: If Const. Carry passes, a signage question

The solution of saying everyone is licenses may end reciprocity for the TX license. I recall part of the reciprocity concept in several states is that the licensing requirements of a reciprocal state is similar to their own. I'm not familiar what's been done with other states that have constitution...

Re: If Const. Carry passes, a signage question

The gun free school zone act contains an exception for law-enforcement official Acting in his official capacity. I would be willing to bet my pocket change there has never ever been an arrest, never mind trial and conviction, of a law enforcement officer current through a school zone While off duty....

Re: Any updates?

Texas Senate should be a slam dunk but of course you can’t count on anything. “Permit less” Carry was not in lieutenant governor Patrick’s five priority bills. I hope that’s because he knows it will pass the Senate and he doesn’t have to throw his shoulder behind it, but my pessimistic/realistic sid...

Re: Any updates?

If I were a Rep on the floor, I would probably put in an amendment to make members of the Nation of Islam prohibited persons. But I would guess certain parties would not get the point.

Re: LTC Instructors standing with Bloomberg

I saw a copy of the letter over at Texas Gun Talk. Looked like there were 56 names on it. The Texas DPS website lists 1848 LTC instructors who have opted to have DPS publish their names on the website. So...lots of other choices of LTC instructors, and the letter signers getting attention far out of...

Re: Electricity Providers

My billing periods run from middle of month to middle of month. So the Snovid period was split between bill ending in Feb and bill ending in Mar. My Jan bill was $113, Feb $115, and Mar $117. Each of those is about $10 more than same periods in 2020, but about the same as 2019 and much less than 201...
