Re: Nominate a 357 target shooter

My Smith and Wesson 686 .357 magnum on double-action is quite sweet---almost no take-up/creep when you squeeze the trigger. Honestly, however, I hate the .357 magnum round. Way too loud for my ears--even with good hearing protection on so I usually shoot .38 special wad-cutters in it when I take it ...

Re: Complaint filed against Lubbock County Courthouse

This is a huge "can of worms." Something tells me the upcoming Texas Legislature may be re-writing some definitions---stay tuned. What if the courthouse opens at 8 a.m. but court does not start until 9 a.m.? Will the folks who get in at 8 a.m. have to exit the courthouse at 9 a.m. and remove their f...

Re: TX: Home invader sentenced to life in prison

So this thug, high on 4 xanax bars and holding a loaded revolver, enters a home and murders the homeowner. Notice, although the defendant said he did not know what his state of mind was that night---nonetheless---proceeded to provide a detailed account of what happened....hmmm--yeah. He posts on soc...

Re: NY: 20 die in horrific limo involved car accident at rural country store

I hope the experts involved can determine the cause(es) of the crash. Looks to me like either driver error and or a brake failure. Since the driver died in the crash--no help there. Wonder if the country store had security video that may have recorded some or all of the crash? I expect, given the li...

Re: Texas Carry Executive Director sued for filing signage complaint against Waller County

Here is a link to the electronic docket sheet. Does not appear there is any recent action so I presume the matter is pending. Too bad we cannot obtain copies of the linked documents for free. There was a proposal to do that the last legislative session but the clerks' offices opposed it because the...

Re: 9mm just as effective as .357 Mag. -- NOT!!!!

Of course the .357 magnum round is more powerful than the 9 mm. round. However, having said that, when I go to the range I would much rather shoot my 9 mm handguns than my Smith and Wesson 686 7 shot revolver in .357 magnum. The .357 magnum round is darn loud (even with good hearing protection on) a...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

Apparently Bob O'Rourke said he did not say that the police were enforcing the new Jim Crow laws. I didn't watch the debate, so I'm not sure when this came up. But here is a youtube video where he seems to sort of point it out. He used the words "Some say". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=917nXTYHY...

Re: Shooting In Abilene

In my opinion this is a tough case. Just my opinion of course. I saw the video this morning on a website the admins do not approve of so will not describe it but you can find it if you search...The victim is a huge guy--reminds me of the guys in the WWF plus he probably has mental problems to contin...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

Beto is certainly not gun-friendly. He adopts the usual anti-gun line that the AR15 is an "assault rifle" which we know it is not. He nuances his position by saying we can keep our AR15s if we already have one BUT he does not believe we should be able to buy any FUTURE AR15s. So, if I want to buy on...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

Latest poll has Cruz leading O'Rourke 54 to 45 percent with one percent undecided. I predict come election time the Cruz margin of victory will be even higher but ya never know. I think Beto could get elected in California or New York--but he ain't gonna fly here in Texas.

Re: FL:Stand your ground law under fire for parking space dispute murder

Not familiar with Florida law. Isn't there a grand jury in any of this? And, of course, I understand a prosecutor can "indict a ham sandwich."
