Re: Grapevine mills mall gun friendly 1/1/16?

One of the only draws for me to go to GVM was when our granddaughter was smaller and wanted to eat at the Rainforest Cafe. It was buried inside so I was controlled by the signs on the building. She is older now and the Rainforest (if it is even still there) is no longer of interest to her. She had a...

Re: Grapevine mills mall gun friendly 1/1/16?

Not sure if anyone has posted an update for this or if a different thread was made, but I went to Grapevine Mills mall to pick up my girlfriend from work (was sick and severely dizzy, couldn't drive herself). According to one of the private (?) Security guards here, the entire property is private a...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

Back before I could vote, I was a supporter of JFK. When I hear "he who shall not be named" being compared to Jack Kennedy, I cannot help but remember someone else who said he was like Kennedy. And this is he response he got. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWXRNySMW4s Yes, I know it was a Democrat ...

Re: 30.05 Law and No Sign

I was at the Arboretum a couple of months a go and carried. I saw no 06, 07 signs and I looked carefully, even inside around the main entrance. One of my friends (who happens to live in Tyler) went there a year or so ago, just after OC when into effect and there were signs then. He pursued it in man...

Re: UT: Starbucks clerk relives attack after customer shoots assailant

I'm glad this situation worked out. But from a different perspective, it could have gone a different way. The attacker was not armed except for the basket that he picked up. Would that be enough of a potentially deadly weapon in many other circumstances to justify a deadly force response? The story ...

Re: Maryland: "30 days training required to have gun at home"

So glad I left in 1988 :iagree: I never lived in MD but part of my territory when I worked out of Wilmington, DE included Salisbury. My experience is that Western MD and the Eastern Shore bear no resemblance to the rest of the State. It is a little like Cook County and Chicago defining what IL is. ...

Re: NY: 20 die in horrific limo involved car accident at rural country store

What a terrible situation. Prayers for the family. But there is a lesson from the governor. According to him. 1. The vehicle had been inspected the month before and had failed. It should not have been on the road 2. The driver did not have the proper class of license to operate the vehicle. So much ...

Re: ANTHONY KENNEDY IS RETIRING!

I didn’t listen, watch or read anything about the hearings today. However I know what both sides are saying about them. Communists/leftists/socialists/progressives/Democrats&RINOs: “Today proves Kavanaugh should not be confirmed!” Conservative Republicans and Normal people: “Today proves Kavanaugh ...

Re: SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING AWARENESS DAY

I have been the victim of neighbor bias reporting. So has my son, who lives not far away. This is the practice of a neighbor who wishes something were illegal trying to use governmental entities (code enforcement, law enforcement) to make their desires into reality. Unfortunately in this day of exce...

Re: Alarm Drop Response

This stuff isn't very popular today but I've had an X-10 system in my house for more than 25 years. Most of the outside lights are on it. Several of the interior lights are, too. I have a timer which turns them on and off at various times i the day. I picked the controlled lights carefully, so that ...

Re: State Park carry?

This thread proves we have way too much gov't, far too many laws, far too many people in power with zero respect for the original meaning and intent of the 2nd Amendment. When a man has to work this hard just to figure out how to keep from running afoul of the law something is wrong. While not ever...

Re: State Park carry?

Whoa, whoa, whooooooa. Read that federal law again. It says "the possession of loaded firearms...." So if you're on COE property, you can carry, but just keep the magazine handy. Right? No. Federal regulation 357.13 (a) Possession of loaded firearms, ammunition......is prohibited. This one sticks i...

I searched through the most recent discussions about the Kangaroo holster and didn't find what I was looking for. I decided to start a new thread My EDC is a Sig P250 Compact. My daily holster for it is an IWB Minotaur. I carry it chambered. But for the last 8 years, I've used the Kangaroo holster f...
