Re: Firearm auction

Many, many years ago I went to a firearm auction. I think it was the city of Pasadena, TX. All police confiscated guns. Anyway I did my walk through, wrote down 5 or 6 that I had interest in and then sat down with my blue book of guns (pre internet). Auction started and these people went bonkers. P...

Re: Fort Worth's dollar store rules are Bloomberg nanny style!

"Food deserts" are a real problem. Poorer neighborhoods do not have access to HEBs, or other regular grocery stores, because they are usually miles away with no mass transit available, and many of those folks do not have their own transportation. So, they have to resort to fast food, convenience st...

Re: Church Meeting on CHL Topics

The decision on whether to join a church safety team is a lot more than just "Am I willing to take another life?" I think the biggest doubt for most toters might be of actual training. Most of us understand that we lack the skills that are necessary to work as an efficient team. Training involves n...

Re: Flying to Colorado

In my travels I've found every airport is different. In San Antonio after checking the bag you must accompany a porter to a TSA checkpoint. In Indianapolis it's sent on through to a checkpoint in the back. One, don't remember where, has a TSA checkpoint right in the lobby where you check it in. Be f...

Re: Disney Plus Mandalorian series

This is the way! I've very much enjoyed the series. And the Star Wars franchise has always turned real firearms into blasters. Han Solo's blaster is a Mauser C96, the Stormtrooper blaster rifles are Sterlings, the Rebel blasters in Empire Strikes Back are StG 44s etc etc. I think it's fun playing i...

I would have been very, very happy if it was the denial via NICS that had kicked off the investigation but I am still very, very glad to Mom took action.

Re: Texas "10 acre" rule for discharging a firearm outside of city limits?

I guess I'm still not clear. I am in an unincorporated area of Tarrant County. Our subdivision has about 95 homes on one acre or more each. It has been common knowledge here that you can shoot firearms on your property, though it rarely happens. I used to shoot targets with my .22 when I first move...

A municipality may not apply a regulation relating to the discharge of firearms or other weapons in the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the municipality or in an...
