Denton Precinct 3 06/07 posting moved to the courtroom entrance. No signage downstairs now.
Good. I’ve carried in there previously outside of the JP court. Nice to know they moved the signs.

Re: Keep an eye on Virginia

I moved to Texas from VA and maintained my membership in the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) and to this day still get all their emails. If you want to follow a group that will keep you on top of gun laws in the Old Dominion, follow VCDL. https://vcdl.org/ Great group, I’ve followed them si...

Re: 10:00AM Costco Parking Lot

Isn't costco posted? No they are not posted IAW 30.06/7 or any other manner as far as I know. They supposedly have made it known that they don’t allow lawful carry in their stores and it is also supposedly included this in their membership agreement. If I were a member I would have no issue ignorin...

Looks cool. I’m kind of a lame builder of AR-15s...this appears chrome plated which indicates quality in my understanding. I understand the BCG, barrel and upper overall are the key components. So are you going to make this one a SBR? I know it’s outrageously expensive, but maybe get a registered lo...

Re: Any bank recommendations?

I bank at Chase Bank. Jamie Dimon,the CEO is pro Trump. Never had one problem in many years of banking there. No posted signs. Dimon is a big Democrat. Did he really come out as supporting Trump? On what issues or is he supporting him for re-election? The Chase that closes accounts of conservatives...

I am alright with it... after all, we are allowing someone to bypass a NICS check with this card. If you are an FFL, the very least that you should do is train your employees on the security features of a Texas ID and LTC card, and then use this website to verify that an LTC is valid.

Re: Effective Range of a .54 Cal Muzzleloader with Round Balls?

Round balls? Why not just use Minié balls? Civil War confederate guerrilla sniper Jack Hinson made hits on union soldiers up to 1000 yards out, using a muzzle loading rifle custom built for that kind of shooting, loaded with Minié balls. Admittedly, he typically fired down onto troop transports fro...

Re: No star in upper right corner of your DL? Problems after 10/1/2020.

You can request a new copy of your current license, so long as you’re more than 2 years from renewal. Maybe the new one will have the star. R To get my new DL, I had to go through a bunch of rigmarole. You need a birth certificate, and not just a photocopy. I got that letter too. You are correct th...
