Re: 2nd Amendment Question

I too have had these same thoughts as I imagine have others on this forum. Unfortunately "We the People" have allowed and continue to allow the erosion of the 2A by our legislators and courts. I fear we are past the point of no return. On that note, I am as guilty as the next guy. I have no desire t...

Re: Manager at Texas Whataburger denies service to detective because of his gun

The cop didn't have to disarm all he had to do was cover it up. Just like us of the lower classes are required to do. What bothers me is that people for some reason this guy is entitled more than the rest of us. Not entitled, simply covered by Texas laws. I frequently wear a polo shirt and slacks o...

Re: Ruger lcp

There are times when my LCP are required due to venue and clothing. I can hide it and a spare mag very easily even with dress pants and shirt but without a coat.

Re: Any Recourse Against Sneaky Tax Raise?

Aren't your taxes still frozen at the level they were when you turned age 65? Better be, that's all those free loadin' scalawags are gonna' get. You need to check your local taxing entities. Where I live, only the County property taxes are frozen at 65 if requested. The school districts, community ...

Re: Do Own A Sig 365?

I purchased two P365 a couple of weeks ago. Sold one to a friend and kept the other one. So far after 500rds it is flawless and is now my new off duty carry choice. I am very happy with it.

Re: Need advice on a IWB for a Glock

I just got a Vedder Light Tuck IWB for my P365. It is the first IWB that I have liked. I highly recommend it.

Re: Carrying on reservations

There is one place north east of Houston - the Alabama-Coushatta Indian Reservation. I don't know any of the history or how it came about or anything like that. Interestingly, though, they did have a casino there for a while. I know because my wife and I were there visiting at the time. This was lo...

Re: Why and When? When did American Society become stupid and why did our society embrace so much hate?

It's all part of the plan that's been in place for over a 100 years. The big difference is technology has allowed it to kick into high gear and the planners are not wasting time.

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

I carried a Colt 1911 in one variant or another for almost 20 of my 31+ years as a LEO. When I retired in 2005 it was my SS Colt DE I got as a BD gift in 1987. Glocks had been around a few years at that time and I along with a lot of other LEOs snickered at using a plastic gun with no safety. By the...

He's so wealthy, he doesn't feel he has to give a darn.
