Re: Hold over/under question

More accurately, the part about holding low 'could be' correct, depending on the distance the rifle was zeroed for. I'm thinking the author just got it backwards. It takes a pretty significant slope angle and a significant distance to really require much adjustment for slope. Uphill slopes & down hi...

Re: Paddle Holster: Inside the pants or just the belt?

(This is not a question about whether a paddle holster is considered a legal belt holster for open carry.) I was shooting steel with my PX4 in a Fobus paddle holster. The paddle was between my jeans and belt (so the bottom hooks would catch on the belt). The RSO was unhappy with the rearward cant a...

Re: Thoughts using laser as bedside gun

Definitely go with a weapon mounted light (WML), but I'm not sold on using a laser. I had a Crimson Trace grip laser on an Officer size 1911 that I really never used and seemed more gimmicky than useful . But I do like having the ability to use a WML one handed if I had to, like if I'm pointing my ...

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

IMHO, the victim did not attack the shooter from behind, he steps between his girlfriend and the antagonist shoving him away. Yes, he was wrong to get physical with the self appointed parking space police. When the shooter pulls his gun the victim is backing away when he is shot. The shooter was wr...

Re: First AR, Colt M4 Trooper vs Sig M400 Elite

I'm also biased towards the Colt, but comparing these two online it appears the Sig Elite comes with a nicer trigger, stock, & pistol grip (there's nothing wrong with the standard parts on the Colt, these are just nicer). The major glitch I personally would have with the Sig is the description says ...

Re: Civil Immunity in Self Defense Cases

Can you be sued in Texas after a shooting has been ruled justified? See post #2 Text is: Sec. 83.001. CIVIL IMMUNITY. A defendant who uses force or deadly force that is justified under Chapter 9, Penal Code, is immune from civil liability for personal injury or death that results from the defendant...

Re: Irving Man Charged with Murder for Self Defense

Also the fact that they were running away when shot might have something to do with it too. I'm sure illegal activity also had something to do with it like Keith B said. :iagree: Once the threat, is over, shooting fleeing criminals, takes away, your defense of, ending a threat.

Re: Moving to Texas

One possible wrinkle. I am a Texas resident and have a Texas LTC. I also have an IL non-resident CCL. Illinois requires you to have a Texas LTC already to get the non-resident CCL. I'm not sure, but you may be required to have your TX LTC first, before IL will allow you to convert. :roll: The good ...

It's key to understand the article linked is referencing a poll of what respondents "feel" are the catalyst(s) for Mass shootings.

Re: Ltc question

Dunno, but I think it was amended earlier than that. In Sept of 2017, when I took my LTC course, the expiration of the LTC-100 was one year then. That's quite possible. I was looking at the adopted & amended dates at the bottom of the rule. That subsection was adopted on March 15, 2017, then amende...

Re: TX LTC Target

I'd surmise that if rounds are hitting towards the 12 o'clock of the point of aim, it's more likely attributable to a flash sight picture (intentionally only acquiring the front sight during rapid, close-in engagements) or to an improper sight alignment if attempting deliberate, aimed fire. The poin...
