Re: 1911 with a 10 rd magazine?

Another way to look at it is that if they don't allow stock tools for competition, you might want to find different matches with less restrictive rules. But if your heart is set on this one, I agree that a 10-rd magazine is not a problem to buy. (if you are willing to spend the money to support tha...

Re: Gun Registration is Gun Confiscation: 2019

Re: 1911 with a 10 rd magazine?

You didn't say exactly what kind of a pistol match this is, but if it is IDPA, then a 10 round magazine in a 1911 would not be allowed because the gun would exceed the maximum dimensions. But then again, if it is IDPA, you can use an 8 round mag in a 1911, just in a different division. At any rate, ...

Re: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick attacks NRA and Supports expanded background checks

I saw a recent survey where 38% of voters (across all parties) said they would not believe that the next election was conducted fairly if their preferred candidate lost. So assuming they are evenly split, roughly 1/5th of the U.S. population will believe that the next President is illegitimate. Thes...

Re: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick attacks NRA and Supports expanded background checks

Obvious there are more people killed my drunk drivers. So the analogy would be then that every car sold should have an ignition interlock device (IID) installed even thou there are people like me that do not even drink. More intrusion from the government on law abiding citizens. Or to make it a bit...

Re: Walmart has fallen!

:iagree: I think retail in general is a dying business. As people get more and more comfortable with online purchases, the main thing that retailers have going for them is timing of purchases. And with overnight shipping that means something you can't wait at least 24 hours to get. The other advant...

Re: TX: Seguin man holsters gun discharging into his testicle

From the article “He was trying to place it back in the holster and somehow hit the slide release or the safety and it actually went off,” Guadalupe County Sgt. Donny White said. The gun was a 9 mm Smith & Wesson, White said. Unless this was an EXTREMELY defective S&W, then it didn't "go off" becaus...

Re: Albertsons goes the way of Walmart

Personally, I think the laws are backwards when it comes to OC and CC in general (not specific to Texas at the moment). Logically, we should be more comfortable with folks carrying openly, since they are willing to openly display the fact that they are armed. If we are going to restrict one or the o...

Re: Albertsons goes the way of Walmart

OC serves what purpose? It's a deterrent, plus it gives me the ability to carry a larger weapon when my clothing choices are limited. The last one is a big one for me since I need to wear a button down shirt to work most days and IWB carry with anything bigger than my P938 is not feasible given med...

Re: Walmart has fallen!

Does the public announcement by WalMart to not open carry in their stores serve as notice or does that only apply when they are speaking to you directly? Otherwise, they will need to post the appropriate signage under Texas law. I am not saying I think folks should open carry if no signage. That is...

Re: Man Reels in Semi-Automatic Rfile

Classic thread! CBS is enhancing on their Anti-gun yellow journalism creds by titling their article "Man Reels in Automatic Rifle While Fishing..." I’d say they’re half right...it’s a semi automatic. Well it would also be partially correct to say that a pebble is a weapon of mass destruction ;-) It...

Re: Man Reels in Semi-Automatic Rfile

Nice catch, think I would of kept that keeper. :woohoo Probably not worth keeping and since it was at the bottom of a lake it was probably used in a crime and or stolen. I wouldn't want anything to do with that and would've also called the police. Guess depends on the damage done, think there alumi...

Re: Would you support this gun private purchase restriction

I haven't read the entire thread, so my apologies if someone has already expressed this obvious thought. If there is a problem, one, of many, things we should do is to consider implementing new laws to alleviate that problem. Any proposed new law needs to pass two simple tests. 1. Will the new law a...
