Re: The tolerant Left at it again

The Netherlands passed a law against covering your face in public. Do we not have any similar laws, at least w. respect to political rallies and demonstrations?

Re: Former anti-gun writer flips sides, joins pro-gun groups

Beautiful.

I've also found a number of columns & articles by former liberals/progressives/whatchamacallits who've woken up to what the left has become, and walked away. Not specifically gun related, but heartening.

Re: M&P 380 Shield EZ

Although friends don't let friends carry .380 (kidding!), I'm glad to know there's a potentially viable option now for those who really need the lighter slide action.

Re: Curious as to what the instructors/“experts” carry?

I like to tell people that choosing a pistol is like choosing a pair of shoes. I wear a size 12 wide; that just wouldn't work for 80-90+ percent of the population. Or a lady might prefer a low heel (or high heel!) that I'll never wear a day in my life. Ditto for clothing size/style/budget. That tend...

Re: What Grinds My Gears

What model bike do you have? When I got back into riding (in 2007), I bought a 2007 Suzuki Bandit. Needed it to be a 'practical' bike for more than just joyriding, so I swallowed hard and installed an aftermarket mount & a 46L Givi topbox. Not a sexy look, but hugely useful.

Re: Estimated gun sales eclipsed historic highs in March

Okay, this was interesting. I saved the image locally as c:\temp\gunsales.jpg, so I could share it on my FB page. When I tried to upload the photo to a new post, the upload didn't happen. I had an empty post. Went back, renames the JPG file to 'bunnies.jpg' and it uploaded successfully. Big Brother ...

Re: Am I overreacting?

First, welcome to the forum! One thing you might consider doing is a) getting recommendations here for a *good* LTC instructor in the DFW area, and b) asking that instructor if you could audit their class to get a *good* class on the Texas laws on use of force, deescalation, etc. I'm be awfully surp...

The basic tactical rifle class taught at College of the Mainland (com.edu) in Texas City. It's offered a few times/year, runs M/Tu/Wed 6-10pm, costs all of $207, and includes all ammunition! First evening is classroom coverage of the AR platform, differences in the trigger group & bolt between semi-...
