Re: Help identifying rattler!!

What every body else said, get to the Doc NOW! Neighbor out at ranch got zapped by a rattler last spring on her foot. Snake was in their carport just outside kitchen door. Not one, but 2 trips to hospital each a couple of days long. Couple of doses of anti-venom.

Re: No star in upper right corner of your DL? Problems after 10/1/2020.

For DOD ID, I was denied in Atlanta. DOD ID had expiration date as "Indefinite" and TSA dude told me that was not allowed and must be a government issued ID with an expiration date. Things got terse for a few minutes when I pulled my Texas LTC, but that is another funny story. Finally accepted my TX...

Re: Instructor Renewal

Have not received that email yet. No big deal, just wish RSD would be a little more clear in what we have to do. Prof Demo was not on the checklist.

Re: Instructor Renewal

Me too. Letter arrived in mail at 1100 this morning and I went on line and got all done in about an hour after receipt. Biggest issue was going through old paperwork to find my original date of NRA Pistol Instructor qual for the LTC-90. Current NRA quals for all disciplines run for another year befo...

Re: Shooter at the Earle Cabell Federal Building

Only two years in the Army? Discharged as a PFC? Sounds like the Army got rid of him for something OTHER than disciplinary reasons.....maybe psychiatric problems? Definitely believe he was doing a SBC.

Re: Gun Storage programs in Texas?

Thanks G.A. If all they are doing is an awareness campaign, think that $1 million over two years needs to go to NRA and TSRA educational initiatives. :biggrinjester:

Re: Gun Storage programs in Texas?

Read the Foxnews article and could not tell exactly WHAT this law says regarding storage. Does anyone know WHAT this says? We already have laws regarding making firearms available to a child with enhanced penalties if someone is injured or killed.

Re: Post Mortem

There are many Republicans (office holders and voters) out there that could really care less about firearms related issues either pro or con. My older sister for example has been a life-long Republican (she is now 75) and is, at best, ambivalent about guns and hunting. She once owned a gun for perso...
