Re: Would you shoot?

The use of deadly force would not be warranted in this situation unless there was a firearm or knife or some other blunt instrument. Pepper spray would be the best use of necessary physical force to stop the assault.

Re: HB 121 - Requires oral notice for 30.06 and 30.07

As I read it, it creates a defense to prosecution if you are personally asked to leave, you comply, but you are charged anyway. As it stands now, there is no defense to prosecution if you leave when asked; leaving only affects the level of offense. This is what Mr. Cotton put on his list of 2A bill...

Howdy Everyone. I'm considering getting into reloading and have been doing quite a bit of research on the topic. One thing I can't seem to find an answer to is substituting brass. For example if a 9mm reloading recipe calls for Winchester 9mm brass but all I have is Starline 9mm brass is it safe to ...

Re: New ATF Form 1 Help

I highly recommend you go through Silencer Shop for your Form 1. I used their Form 1 service and it was so easy. If you live in the Austin area there main store/office is here. It's a one stop shop and believe me it makes the process so much easier than doing it yourself. https://www.silencershop.co...

Academy Stores Out of Stock on PMAG's

So I've noticed something over the past few days during my travels to various Academy stores in the Austin area. Every store I went to was out of stock on PMAG's. Every store!

Beto O'Fudd

He is certainly showing his true colors. Says he is a gun owner but wants to ban "assault weapons" and "bump stocks". Such a hypocrite.

Re: British Couple (Joel & Lia) Go Shooting

I live in Austin and have been to both Red's locations. I would imagine this has not been good press for them. Hopefully a lesson learned for their staff.

Are their special storage requirements? Are their state laws regarding this? I live in Austin so their ...
