Re: Joe Biden

How in the heck is the demand for AR's not spiking? Surely people must realize there is a realistic chance that Biden or one of the even crazier Dems might get elected, and yet you can still buy a brand new Ruger AR 556 for $479 on Buds. This is nuts. Heck, even my wife, who is a Dem, asked me why I...

Re: Any bank recommendations?

I have accounts at Bank of Texas, Wells Fargo, and Chase, and I've open carried in all of them without issue. I prefer local banks, but it is good to have an account with a national bank just in case you run into issues while travelling.

Re: This is How Custer Must Have Felt

Have you tried artillery? T.O.T? Time On Target. My favorite mission, both from the Forward Observer's point of view and from the Fire Direction Center's. Most fun you can have with your boots on. This reminds me of a funny story from my FDC days. We were all sitting in the track waiting, and bored...

Re: Why Can't We Return To How Peaceful The World Was Before Guns?

Eliminating the tools with which people hurt each other is not going to solve the problem. You need to eliminate hate to do that. And good luck with that. Humans are intelligent creatures. We can find / make tools to do whatever we want to do. I always laugh when I see signs that say "no weapons all...

Re: Traveling to AR, TN and KY

In addition to the relevant laws, you might also want to spend some time on the respective states CCW forums, especially if you are in the "don't want to take a ride" camp. That's how I found out that Mississippi's AG has stated an intent to enforce all signs, no matter how they are written, despite...

Re: Oklahoma Constitutional Carry

On the other hand, a Texan who is carrying under vehicle carry and drives into OK may not know that they can put the gun in a holster and carry it on their person. But then again, if they don't know that OK has CC and they don't have an LTC, they might not own a holster in the first place. Worst ca...

I have not camped on the beach since then, but I have wondered how to keep sand out of a pistol while keeping it fully functional.
Hmmm, I'd say the answer is "buy a Glock". Was this a trick question?

Re: 1911 Bug bites again. Which one?

I voted for the CCU but would also recommend looking at Dan Wesson's. There are a few in the same price range as the CCU. I'd second this. To be fair I have limited experience with Colts having owned only a Colt Defender that was perfectly adequate, and a WW1 era gun that I've never actually shot. ...

Re: Special Election Today

My biggest issue is not with people who decide not to vote, but rather with those folks who feel the need to vote for every race and every measure whether they know anything about it or not. For example, if you don't even know the basic responsibilities of a position, or anything about the people ru...

Re: Oklahoma Constitutional Carry

I don't forsee any problems. Oklahoma residents could always carry in their vehicles while in Texas (assuming they aren't felons, etc). So an Oklahoman who drives across the border won't have an issue unless he / she steps out of their vehicle with a gun. The odds of someone from Oklahoma doing that...

Re: Morman Bloodbath in Mexico

it occurs to me that they were possibly living in Mexico because 1. it's cheaper and 2. poligamy is illegal here, don't know about there, but if it is, it probably isn't enforced. What I do know is what happened was horrid and the people who did it deserve a paricularly hot spot further south Unles...

Re: It's Halloween - How many will be armed

I'll untuck my shirt to cover my OWB holster and gun. And the dog will be closed up in the bedroom. Other than that, it will be like every other night of the year.
