Re: Testing improper signage...

I have no problems walking while concealed in an improper 30.06/07 sign. The odds of being spotted, and charged are very remote. The penalties as a class C are minor. Even if I were to be charged its hardly worth fighting. While the fight might be a matter of principle it's just not a big deal. All...

Re: Carrying on someones private property

Although I will not carry if I know there are very young kids present. Why the disconnect? It seems unreasonable that any risk brought to the table is any more or less justifiable based on age alone. Unless you're often tagged into hide-and-go-seek or pull off some crazy dance moves. But one could ...

Re: Are Pepper Guns Legal in TX?

Don't confuse him with the facts. ;-) Most people have a hard time admitting when they are wrong. It is human nature to defend your position regardless of the evidence presented against it. That's why I have great respect for people who have risen to a point where they are able to simply say "oh, I...

Heck of a deal, and heck of a good guy to deal with.

Unfortunately, I'm not planning to get up that way anytime soon.

Re: ATF says bump-stocks have never been used in a crime...

If this is real, then it is extremely significant, IMHO. In the ATF's ruling that redefined bump stocks as machine guns, they cited the use of bump stocks by the Vegas shooter as one of the reasons for the rule. If they are now saying that they have no evidence that bump stocks were actually used in...

Re: When does a school zone end?

I knew I had read the code somewhere on this and I found it. Can you tell me what code section you found it at? When I saw the post, I went looking through the Transportation Code and could not find the section on school zones. I did not do an extensive search though and I thought the answer might ...

Re: Female gun ownership and the rise of fashionable "carrywear"

I think one key is that everyone needs to understand that there is a trade-off that will need to be made between comfort, appearance, and functionality. True, but it is a trade off many choose not to accept- a huge percentage of licensees don't carry, for those exact reasons. Closing that trade off...

Re: Metal Detectors are Wal-Mart???

They're bound to be RFID scanners. Metal detectors would be useless... they would go off every time a shopping cart went through the doors. Yeah, not to mention car keys, pocket knives, metal frame eyeglasses, my artificial knee, the plate in my head, and of course my firearm. :iagree: My wife cann...

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

I wouldn’t mind seeing the NRA fallout and members of NRA join up with Firearms Policy Coalition or Gun Owners of America. Heck I think the reason most of us still support the NRA is because it is the biggest and most powerful. I don’t think that their views actually align with most gun owners toda...

Re: Metal Detectors are Wal-Mart???

Were Wal-Mart employees standing next to the machines? If they are metal detectors, they would be pretty useless unless an employee was there to stop folks when they went off. It might be easier just to ask your co-worker if they went off when she walked through. Since she had her phone, that should...
