Re: Illinois Car Carry

My info is 2 yrs old. I was not pulled over.

If you have a Texas LTC, you may have a gun in the car.

HOWEVER,

It is legal to possess the firearm in your car as long as it is unloaded and enclosed in a container. You can have a loaded magazine “WITH” the gun, but it must not be “IN” the gun.

Re: Clear backpacks

If they are not going thru metal detectors then this is not going to do anything. Instead of AR's next, it will be pocket pistols or something else. This is really a stupid idea. Metal detectors are just as big a charade. 7 years ago I worked at a school that had metal detectors and a clear back pa...

Failing a breathalyzer is not proof you haven't been drinking. It's proof you aren't legally drunk.

Re: School teacher quiz

I would agree that the majority of teachers oppose armed teachers. It's not as wide a gap as we are led to believe but carrying is a minority opinion in ed world.

I sat on a committee for 8 colleges to help form the rules last year and I've worked for two major school districts.

Re: Gov. Greg Abbott announced a new school safety plan and proposed changes to gun laws

I'm failing to see the harm in requiring people to report a stolen firearm.

We were robbed several years ago. Within hours we had a preliminary list of missing things. Within 3 days we had the entire list. We submitted it to the insurance company within a week.

Re: Carry at gun show

This thread brings back great memories of the last time I went to the mesquite gun show. He was only 7 at the time, but my son was giving the ticket seller a run for his money about the sign that said I couldn't carry. He asked me why and I said I don't know ask him. He did and then he debated the a...

Re: Does Having An LTC Make You An Implied LEO?

No. Never.

One of the first things we did in my chl class was raise our right hand and say, "I am not a law enforcement officer."

Well, all of us but the three that actually were.

Re: The "I am a marine not a soldier"

I've got about 6 Marine buddies/acquaintances.

I used the term "former Marine" one time.

Just once.

Re: Compact 45 for concealment

I carry the xds45. Light weight. Bullet goes where I aim. 6 in the gun, 7 in the backup mag and I don't feel outgunned. Cons 1. The grip is very aggressive. Not for sensitive hands. 2. My, and a lot of other owners on their forum, 7 round mags took awhile to break in. It would basically misfeed a ro...

Re: NRA National Meeting May 3-6 -- Anybody Worried?

For all you out of towners, the DART line is nowhere near as complicated as it looks. The orange, red and blue lines all run directly through downtown and all 3 stop at the Convention Center. Then you walk a little over 150 yards (under a cover) and boom you are right there. The green line is a lit...

Re: Palo Duro Canyon State Park / Texas Outdoor Musical?

I saw the show 25 years ago. I still remember parts of it. Bbq dinner was good.

I was in the canyon last year with my kids. Stage looked the same but musical wasn't in season.

I didn't see any 30.06 signs up. It was off season for musical though. We were there to hike the canyon.

Re: NRA National Meeting May 3-6 -- Anybody Worried?

For those worried about parking, I have 2 solutions. (I've lived in Dallas almost all my life.) 1. Use DART Rail. Most train locations have parking lots and they are scattered all over Dallas. There are 3 within 5 miles of my house. The train stops at the Convention Center. You walk about 100 yards ...
