Re: New reseach shows good guy with a gun wrong

"A new study found that states with looser concealed-carry gun laws have higher rates of gun homicide. The results also showed that higher levels of gun ownership are associated with more mass shootings. The study suggests the US could reduce gun violence by lowering levels of gun ownership and pas...

Re: Nazi’s removing statues in America after winning WW2

Will all the valid, non-slavery reasons behind the south's secession be erased... My reading of history suggests the Deep South cotton states seceded mainly over slavery... they pretty much said so in their convention debate records. Border states like Tennessee and Virginia seceded later, and prob...

Re: If you could only carry a revolver

The one I carry most often is the Ruger SP101 DAO .357 snub.

Re: Kent State 50 Years Ago - Four Dead in Ohio

W/o 2nd 1st goes away I think was the jest. Agreed. But Kent State is a bad example to discuss First Amendment issues, too. The assemblies were not peaceful. There had been arson, looting, and violence. It was a disaster waiting to happen. That's why it's a better example for private citizens on ho...

Re: Kent State 50 Years Ago - Four Dead in Ohio

If anyone ever tells you "Only the government should have guns", ask them to describe what the government did with guns at Kent State University on May 4, 1970. Ask them if they'd be okay with history repeating itself. Ask them if they want to rewrite the Second Amendment would they also rewrite th...

Re: Coronapocalypse Projects & Pastimes

Having acquired whiskers, beeswax, and almond oil, I am fixing to manufacture and try out some homemade moustache wax.

I hope I still have a need for it when things return to normal. Right now I am unshaven at home under a special pandemic dispensation.

Re: Corona Virus (2019-nCoV) from China: Its going to be bad.

I'm not concerned about the virus; I'm more concerned about shortages caused by panic, so I laid in another 5-gal pail of dried goods. On that subject, my neighborhood HEB grocery store in Cypress was cleaned out of drinking water as of last night. I don't know if it's from folks stocking up or the...

My Lucky Day

So, for the last two weeks I have flown without a firearm because of anticipated rushes to the airports, an unfamiliar airline, and out of state travel. Last week I flew American from IAH to Amarillo, and then from IAH to Atlanta. No issues taking my carryon bag through security. This week I flew to...

Fescue is green, but that aside, it is thin bladed compared to San Augustine. It also does well the n wi...

Re: Lawn care suggestions...

St. Augustine isn't my favorite turf. It requires relatively more water and more risk of disease. But it endures shade better than the thinner bladed grasses. How much shade do you have? I once replaced a backyard of San Augustine with bermuda because there was no shade, and I couldn't put enough wa...

Re: .357 Magnum Revolver recommendations

Interested in pairing up a lever action rifle and revolver in same caliber. Have the lever rifle selected, need recommendations on good .357 Magnum revolvers, barrel length 3.5 to 5 inches. If I wasn't going to conceal the revolver, and if I wanted it to digest the very same .357 magnum rounds as t...

Re: This is How Custer Must Have Felt

That's very close to the scenario that made me invest in a 6.8spc AR... Went out to the farm with my .45-70 to help my dad out and shoot a pig or two... Seeing several dozen come across the fence line when you've only 4+1 in the rifle and 6 .44 Mag in a revolver isn't a great feeling. It's much bet...
