Re: What oil/lube do you use

I'll use pretty much any oil or grease. However, for corrosion, I haven't found an alternative to corrosion resistant materials apart from constant maintenance.

Re: El Paso Shooting Ranges

My uncle lived out that way and they would just put together ranges out on public land in New Mexico (foreign concept here in Texas, but El Paso is right next to Western states where that is common). Once we needed to test a Benelli out after cleaning it and we just pulled over and shot a few rounds...

Re: Beto visits gun show in Little Rock.

Sales on this website uniformly state via FFL or FTF only and require the presentation of a valid CHL at the time of the sale. Can you point me to that forum rule? I cant seem to find it. I've looked in the "Read before posting" thread in firearm sales https://texaschlforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t...

Re: Beto visits gun show in Little Rock.

I agree that an NICS database that incorporates byzantine standards and a lack of accountability invites abuse. I think that might be the chief argument for an open and searcheable database. While soccerdad brings up a great point about privacy, right now the only way to know that you're prohibited ...

Re: Wisdom from Robert Heinlein

We can easily forget that the political effect of the 2A is it's TRUE purpose. Hunting, sport and self defense are of course important, but an armed society cannot become Venezuela unless first disarmed.

Re: Beto visits gun show in Little Rock.

I'm also fairly intolerant of people who want to hide behind the (very important) private sales exception to essentially run a business because my neighbor's dad growing up was an FFL. He kept it up as a side for his regular business, but it was mostly a service for friends and family to get firear...

Re: Beto visits gun show in Little Rock.

The in the business of selling guns standard is reasonable, except that gun shows all have an ATF presence for running NICS checks. I'm not a big participant in gun shows, but my understanding is that selling off of your table with no NICS check in Texas essentially does not happen. That is not cor...

Re: Beto visits gun show in Little Rock.

I'm not arguing that private sales should undergo checks, just that we need a real and consistent definition of "in the business". The only guns that I've given away or sold were to people that I know, and this forum maintains a strong ethic of "CHL or Texas DL" for FTF sales. I dont really care abo...

Re: Beto visits gun show in Little Rock.

The gun seller said he would support a requirement that gun-show sellers like him get a federal firearms license. What does he mean "would support a requirement"? Does he mean that he would begin obeying the current laws if a new one were passed? If the ATF doesn't care now, why would they suddenly...

There is broad consensus on that opinion within the Muslim world; SA's hypocrisy, treatment of Mecca as a for pro...
