Re: Rescued a forlorn old girl today

Some people have all the luck. :grumble Congratulations on a good find! :thumbs2: He's had it since the early 00s I believe, this and a 9x18 Makarov that I had a choice of. While both rounds are somewhat odd, the 7.62 appealed to me more. It's a hot little round, makes a brilliant flash of light an...

Re: Suspect accused of Deep Ellum assault could face more serious charges

DALLAS - A woman assaulted in Deep Ellum this week retained an attorney who says the suspect should be facing more serious charges. Video from a bystander caught part of what happened, including what appeared to be a gun in the suspect's right hand. http://www.fox4news.com/news/suspect-accused-of-d...

Re: Rescued a forlorn old girl today

7.62 x 25? Is this ammo available, or is it like finding Sasquatch? :-) SIA This ammo is commonly known as 7.62 tokarev and like much of the former Soviet Block ammo, is pretty widely available and cheap from the bulk importers. Maybe you wouldn’t find it at Academy, but ammoman has it. I have a CZ...

Re: HB 2046

I’ll probably be crusified on here, but I very much support this Bill! I oppose HB 1149! I’m glad that a person with a DWI or Assault conviction has to wait 5 years! I also think dead beat parents that don’t pay child support should be denied. I’m happy with the current Eligibility requirements in ...

Re: Report: More Than 1,700 Red Flag Orders in 2018

We all have to be realistic that there are people that should not have firearms. No doubt those people also shouldn't have sharp objects, motor vehicles, et cetera. If somebody is truly a danger to themselves and others, the tool isn't the real problem. I agree but how, if we know someone is a risk...

Re: A somewhat unique situation.

You do not say where you are located. Public transportation that is not owned privately, is not allowed to deny Licensed carry. Your place of work can, they do not even have to have signage if they have notified you. This could be done as simply as notification in your employee handbook. A notifica...

Re: HR 1263 Adds semiauto rifles and shotguns to NFA 1986

Small point of order...it’s the NFA of 1934, as amended by the GCA of 1968, and the Inartfully named FOPA of 1986. :rules:

Re: Rep. Michael Burgess may be dangerous

All rights should be applied equally. If you want to lower the voting age, fine, lower the drinking age, the age at which one can sign legal contracts, the age at which one can purchase firearms, the age at which one can be conscripted for military service, the age at which one can marry, ad nauseu...

Re: TABC sting goes bad for them

Long term solution. Lower the drinking age to 18 to reduce the amount of TABC agents required to enforce this particular violation. If it worked until 1984 it ought to be ok in 2019. :smash:

Re: What do you use to monitor safe humidity?

Just curious what everyone uses to monitor the conditions inside their safes.

Re: National Conceal-Carry. No Hope

Well at least we got a bump stock ban even without Congress. My hope is for absolutely NO legislation at the Federal level. It's not an enumerated power of the central government to govern possession, wearing, and carry of arms in the States. We have a long history of (arguably) unconstitutional leg...
