Re: When America understood warship building

This reminded me of an old sci-fi novel, THE AYES OF TEXAS. Basically, an eccentric secretly updates the Battleship Texas and takes on Russia.

Re: TX: Dallas LTC holder fends off robbers at home cookout

Not that it matters, but that's just a few blocks from the Barrow family home/gas station on Singleton (then Eagle Ford Road). As in Clyde Barrow, Bonnie's boyfriend.

Re: Glock 44 - .22 LR pistol

That should sell very well.
I see it as a sub-caliber trainer more than a sport pistol.

Re: Big Shoot-Out South of Eagle Pass, Texas

I don't know. Fort Hood got shot up pretty good before they took him out. You would think a military base would have armed people everywhere. Military bases are police states, with tight weapons regulations. While most units have weapons, they are almost all tightly controlled and kept in arms room...

Re: Fort Wolters

There was a KD range there, used for National Guard training and for NRA High Power Rifle /CMP Service Rifle matches. I can't remember if it went to 1000 yards, or just 600.

Re: FL: Multiple victims at a stabbing incident...

It was one of those concealable folding knives with a large-capacity blade.

Re: Ohio Republican backs ending sale of military style weapons

It's interesting that this comes as the National Rifle and Pistol Matches - which involve large numbers of service rifles in civilian hands - are still in progress at Camp Perry, Ohio.

Re: Unbelievable In The United States

At the very least, wouldn't throwing buckets of water at a them be considered interfering with an officer, or some such charge?

I'm not familiar enough with Tasers to know if zapping a person when you're wet is a good idea.

Re: The Much-Maligned, Under-powered 30 U.S. Carbine

John George had some nice things to say about the carbine in Shots Fired in Anger . He was a pretty serious rifle shooter before the war, and became a sniper in the Pacific campaign. A veteran of Guadalcanal and of Merrill's Marauders operations in Burma, he's entitled to his opinions on combat weap...

Re: Off The Beaten Path - Greenville, TX

That sign is stored in the museum. They don't display it.

Also, Audie Murphy enlisted in the Army in Greenville.

I really need to go to the Audie Murphy / American Cotton Museum next time I'm out that way.

Re: NH: Pick up truck driver charged with negligent homicide in deaths of 7 motorcyclists

It gets complicated. Short version: Basically, a CDL is required for operating a commercial vehicle >/= 26,001 lbs (GVW, GVWR, GCWR, etc.) in interstate commerce (Federal). Most (all?) states follow that for intrastate commercial vehicles. There are exceptions, rules, interpretations, etc. Operating...

Re: Malaysia Airlines Flight Vanishes

The only mystery is that why the pilot let plane fly for hours south, instead of a steep dive and instant death. Why he had the interest of not finding the airplane in the first place. His reputation? Was he protecting someone's eligibility for life insurance? Perhaps so that we would still be talk...
