Re: CA: Engineer tries to sink USNS Mercy with train

It seems his tin-foil hat may have been just a little bit too tight.

Re: Coronapocalypse Projects & Pastimes

That’s pretty cool. Did you do the LED install yourself on the safe, or did it come with them?

The Texas LTC already provides for this, but some retailers store policies require the NICS check in spite of not needing it. Blame the retailer
This is the reason I choose to not deal with some retailers.

Re: Coronapocalypse Projects & Pastimes

Working IT in the healthcare industry, I get to keep going to work each day. During the ongoing panic, I did find some time this weekend to clear a spot in the garage and move my freezer from the back porch into said garage. I still need to move some stuff around to make it more permanent. The good ...

I noticed on Saturday that all of the Brady dates given were April 15th. Were others getting different dates?

Re: Chelsea Manning has attempted suicide twice now.

I am ashamed of the posts that would seem to advocate in favor of Manning committing suicide. Whether you agree with someone on a political or social level, they are still a human life, and they have people that would still have to deal with the aftermath of that suicide. We should be better than t...

Re: My down the road neighbor's dilemma!

Send it back to Taurus. They should fix it for free. Yes, the turnaround may take a while to get it back from Georgia. But he will then have a working revolver. No, he won't. It's a Taurus. :???: Seriously, if you ,like him, help him get it sent in, then sell it FTF for $250-300, and buy something ...

Re: Nobody but Bernie Sanders

I am sick to death of watching this unabashed communist get interviewed by sycophantic newsfolks who tiptoe around his economic / political philosophies. I have seen more than once a newsie refer to Sanders as a socialist and he corrects them to "Democratic Socialist" and they meekly apologize. Wou...

I wouldn’t worry too much. It isn’t uncommon for people to have plastic in hand before status online changes.

Holsters for pistols with RDS

I picked up a Glock 19MOS last year, and I love it. I just haven't found many options for holsters for pistols with an RDS mounted. What are some of the better options?

Re: Another Walmart Shooting

The Hickory Creek (Denton County) WM has just installed some interesting gates inside the store. I guess they don't open OUT, so that shoplifters can't exit with carts full of stolen goods. They DO allow you to enter the store with your cart. Has anyone else seen these in their local WM's? SIA Long...

Re: Another Walmart Shooting

One of the three (3!!!) WM stores in Longview has a reserved parking spot for Longview PD right next to the door.
The third store was opened a few years ago when some of the locals complained about having to drive all the way across town to shoplift.
