Re: MS: LSU player loses leg after hunting dog fires 12 gauge.

Yep, tragic. But preventable. Similar happened a few years back near Beaumont. Hunter took a goose load thru the tailgate. Hit femoral artery. He did not make it.

Re: Indoor rifle range

You might want to Google "407 Gun Club". Near 35W, south of Denton. 2 lanes at 100 yards.

Re: Deer woods in the AM

That sounds like a good time. Rut should be in high gear about now. I got to go opening weekend and have not had a break to go back. On Sunday morning I was sitting near a corner fence line watching for a buck I had seen in heavy cover about 200 yards away at dusk the prior evening, My brother took...

Re: Project Appleseed Long Range Event Review

I did my third 2-day event last weekend in Norman, Oklahoma. Helped son and 2 friends get the patch with 22s. It was another very enjoyable weekend with like-minded people. I got the patch years ago in Davilla, TX with score of 234 with a scoped 10/22. Lingering car wreck injuries kept me from being...

Re: Ted Cruz Sign

I ordered 2 of the yard signs a couple of weeks ago. Got one of them put up tonight on a mini billboard for southbound traffic at range on Copper Canyon Road. The rather small sign does "pop" on existing blue 4 X 8 background. Time will tell how long it remains as is.

Re: Need help on suggestions for elderly parents for hd

"with winchester pdx" You might want to think more about that. Unless over penetration is a big concern. After testing various "gimmick loads" over the years, the best I found in .410 is the Federal 4-pellet 00, which held good groups even out of a Judge. And .410 slugs have numbers right up there w...

Another sad local example: Towed on a tube and wearing no life jacket.

Re: Ft Worth Gun Show 6/23, 24

Premier has a smaller one in Lewisville next weekend. June is traditionally the slowest month of the year for gun shows and the gun range biz, so yep, some vendors will be glad to see y'all.

Jarhead Confidence

Had another student that I respected in LTC class yesterday. USMC for around 20 years and cop for 6. Around 6 ft. 3", 225. He had been fairly quiet though the normal coverage of situational awareness, non-violent dispute resolution, body language, etc. Then, near end of class, he briefly shared his ...

Re: Ruger lcp

I have the Little Cute Pistol with CT laser and a Desantis Nemesis pocket holster. It goes out the door rarely, generally only when wearing draw-string shorts and I don't feel like packing the weight of a real gun. Kahr PM9 is more often the go-to gun for pocket carry. Go-to handgun for longer dista...
