Texas works to liberate New York City

From the AG: Attorney General Ken Paxton today joined a 17-state friend-of-the-court brief to defend the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. The case challenges New York City’s unconstitutional gun law, which denies millions of Americans their constitutionally-protected right to own a firearm. ...

Re: Sign on NASA property

The parking lot is still federal property, however I believe they turn a blind eye to parking lot storage, at least that was what I was told by a security person there a few years ago. 18 U.S. Code § 930 does not apply to parking lots. It uses "Federal facility" like Texas law uses "premises". At t...

Re: More Winning? Trump signs HR 5895...

How exactly would we investigate how this was changed? I plan on making some phone calls about this but the fact that it 'mysteriously' disappeared is troubling. Been trying to figure this out but no luck. Have read very many of the amendments but found nothing. It seems as if it went into committe...

I see it in the summary but looking at the text I can’t find it. Too good to be true? Or am I just not looking in the right spot?
Same here. What the summary states for section 109 is not what's shown in the enrolled bill.

Re: The importance of off hand shooting

Twice in the last three years I've had that lesson driven home. Shoulder injury once and then broken wrist and arm. I'd always practiced offhand shooting but it also pointed out the necessity of having a left handed or ambidextrous holster for my carry pistol.

Re: Postal Service is a joke...

Try living in a subdivision where all the street names start the same. Our subdivision is Landmark Point and every street starts with Landmark. Landmark Gate, Landmark Run, etc. Twelve streets, many common numbers. Yesterday on our Facebook page there were three different postings for misdelivered p...

Re: Words to engrave

Sapper...There is even a Tab for this special skill identifier. Look real good on a set of grips. The Sapper tab is not just for engineers though. It's worn by anyone who graduated the Sapper Leader Course operated by the U.S. Army Engineer School at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. If you want to hono...

Re: Discount codes from NRA AM 2018

I just tried the Bench Made code without success. I have an LE account. Perhaps it doesn't work with an LE account. May only have been good during or within a certain period after the annual meeting. Especially since there's been an increase. Quite a few people on here with a recruiter link in thei...

Re: TX: Trooper vs BG shootout

Moving on the car when the bad guy was barricaded was an interesting choice. Nice to see DPS with some good tech for their aviation unit. Sweet how the camera locked on to the target and stayed slaved to it for the flight to the hospital. All they need is a guided 'less lethal' air launched missile...

Re: Three professors sue UT to keep guns out of their classrooms

...... It's notable how widespread the perception is that the "campus carry" concept refers to carrying in institutional buildings , not "on campus." Of course, it's difficult to imagine why somebody would go on a campus without entering any of the buildings, but still, the misunderstanding is ever...

Re: Pictures of your "Brown Guns"

Thank you for the reply and information. I doubt I would run hunting ammo through it. I have some old 30-06 brass around and Starline tells me that they will start making 30-06 brass soon. 308 ammo is less expensive and more common. Where did you get the information about boring out the gas block? ...
