Re: Question Re: Windows 10 System Image Backup

I agree with rotor about Acronis. I used it for a while with a Windows 10 Home system and the automatic reboot after a forced Win 10 update not only corrupted that day's backup, but the subsequent incremental backup data became corrupted by the incorrect header data or table data from that first fai...

Re: DFW Veterans Cemetery Legal for CC Carry?

Yep. I go to the Houston National Cemetery regularly, so already had a bookmark to its " Weapons Policy ": VA regulations 38 CFR 1.218 prohibit the carrying of firearms (either openly or concealed), explosives or other dangerous or deadly weapons while on VA property, except for official purposes, s...

Re: Question: Damp FMJ Ammo

Thanks folks. I decided not to run the ammo through the washing machine or the dryer as an experiment, though. :mrgreen: I wonder what the odds are of at least one discharge if you put 1,000 loose center fire rounds in a dryer. I haven't shot .40 much in a while, that's why I had an unopened case in...

Question: Damp FMJ Ammo

I think it'll be okay, but want to ask those more knowledgeable. Discovered a toilet leak in the master bath last Sunday morning. Turned off the water supply, mopped up the floor, and plumber out the next day to fix er up. It didn't look like the slow drip had done any damage beyond getting the mold...

Re: Property taxes

Just a recent cautionary tale. I worked overseas for a while last year and thought I had all my home mail forwarding to a rental UPS PO box. My neighborhood has those community standalone boxes shared by a couple of dozen houses. USPS does not/will not deliver directly to the home, only to those sma...

Re: Brownells CCI Mini-Mag .22 LR

Thanks, guys. Email from Brownells says that the code today 2/14 is HUB for 10% off + free shipping on orders over $99. BTW, my order shipped yesterday at 16:30, so less than 24 hours after the order was placed. Might even get here in time for weekend plinking.

Re: Democrats propose high-capacity gun magazine ban

The Democratic legislation, cosponsored by Rep. Ted Deutch of Florida and Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, would ban any magazine that exceeds 10 rounds of ammunition. The legislation, which has been dubbed the "Keep Americans Safe Act," currently has no Republican cosponsors, one of many obstacles...

Brownells CCI Mini-Mag .22 LR

This is probably a short-term offer, but I didn't see an expiration. CCI Mini-Mags have always been my fave in .22 semi-autos, but it's been a while since I've seen them for a decent price. This is a combo offer and to get full value you'll need to buy at least 2,000 rounds. Here's the breakdown of ...

Re: Dennis Bonnen Elected Speaker of the Texas House

Didn't the legislature stream its goings on over the interwebs one or two sessions ago? Does anybody know if they'll do that again? Well, duh. Took all of two minutes to find it.
