So is that normal for gun suicide? self-inflicted gunshot to chest is not unheard of for suicide. Sadly, I know of one person connected to my life who has ...

Re: Property taxes

I honestly would be willing to consider a HUGE increase in sales tax in order to eliminate property taxes, or at least freeze property taxes based on the price of purchase. It is totally unfair the way the current property tax and appraisal system works. A family can buy a piece of property and with...

Re: Liberty County Building - Posted

I'm still waiting for an LTC'er to do something illegal in the capital... If we don't break the laws there, I doubt we will break them anywhere. If you are going to assassinate a witness for a relative or the prosecutor (or really anybody), it is just as easy to wait outside. It is simply security ...

Re: Civet Coffee

I love good coffee and would definitely give this stuff a try if it were offered to me. That said, I get my fresh roasted, single origin coffee beans from El Lago Coffee Company for $10/lb. They may not have the variety or quality control of the other roasters out there. But they have what I need an...

Re: Hold over/under question

Of course it depends on what distance your sight is zeroed at, but shooting downhill you will tend to hit high . I think your author got their words twisted a bit, but you would have to aim a bit low when shooting downhill. 9 inches sounds a bit much at 350 yds, but it depends on the round and wher...

Re: Hold over/under question

I could be wrong, but it sounds like the writer probably doesn't have much of a background in math or shooting. As far as the slope is concerned that equates to about 1 ft of elevation drop per 13 ft of horizonatal distance which is not insignificant, but is a mild sloping hillside. The bullet drop ...

Re: Thoughts on open carry

I am uncomfortable with the thought of the attention that OC might bring me. That said, I have "experimented" with OC in my car on the way home from work because it's much easier to slip an appendix holster on and off in the car and have ready and available access to my firearm than to have to don a...

I migrated from north of the border days after I finished college. I actually was born in Oklahoma but my whole life resided on the Kansas side of state line road. In November 2006 I accepted a job offer to begin my career in Texas, and upon graduating in May 2007 I found a new home in Texas about a...

Re: My first BB gun purchase

I probably will set up a hanging soda can inside a cardboard box stuffed with hay or something to catch the bbs.

I have a feeling that he won't want to shoot at the squirrels and crows on the foam block that I bought anyway.

Re: Person hit by gunshot at Red's Indoor Range in Pflugerville has died

Suicides at gun ranges are a real thing, and something that range owners must be aware of and prepared for. Reasoning (if you can call it that) ranges from easy and inexpensive access to a firearm , and it leaves the mess to strangers to clean up rather than loved ones. A few years ago there was ac...

My first BB gun purchase

My son started Kindergarten last week. He's crossing multiple milestones now. For example, On Sunday he asked me to take the training wheels off of his bicycle. So I did and he learned to ride it. I also took the child safety lock off of the door on his side of the car so that he can get him self ou...
