Re: Texas "10 acre" rule for discharging a firearm outside of city limits?

My house is on an acre, with the house behind me at around 200 ft. Most yards are unfenced, and there are coyotes around at night. My wife took the dog downstairs to do his business at 5:00 yesterday morning and heard panting in the darkened wooded area behind the house. I told her not to go out aga...

Re: Texas "10 acre" rule for discharging a firearm outside of city limits?

I guess I'm still not clear. I am in an unincorporated area of Tarrant County. Our subdivision has about 95 homes on one acre or more each. It has been common knowledge here that you can shoot firearms on your property, though it rarely happens. I used to shoot targets with my .22 when I first moved...

Re: A little more of the NRA is being told

I'm with Flintnapper. I'm a solid NRA member and that will not change. All the negatives seem to point back to LaPierre, and I have not seen a solid defense of the excesses that he has been accused of. I don't have an opinion one way or the other. Like most of us, I don't have enough reliable inform...

Re: House select committee Meeting at Brook Haven college in Farmers Branch

I wish I could answer. I listened while 7 experts from colleges, Facebook, DPD, DPS etc read a speech. There was no mention of gun laws except "This isn't about guns.." The entire meeting was about social media, primarily Facebook who had sent a representative. DPS sent an Asst Chief who didn't real...

Re: House select committee Meeting at Brook Haven college in Farmers Branch

I’m here now. No 30.06 signs
They are just talking about social media today
Lots of Moms Demand Action red shirts
Quite a few pro-2A people also
But overall This small auditorium is not half full

Wisdom from Robert Heinlein

As a teenager I read every book from Sci-Fi author Robert Heinlein I could find in the local and school libraries. Only later in life did I come to know Heinlein as a pro-2a guy. Herewith some of his best quotes: There are no dangerous weapons; there are only dangerous men. Robert A. Heinlein An arm...

Re: Savage Model 64F Takedown.22 rifle

That’s a dead ringer for a Papoose, including the bag.
They should throw in a Piccatinny rail to fit those tapped holes.

Re: E-bikes: anybody have one?

TAM, it's been almost 2 years since you got those e-bikes. Still happy with them? Any issues?
I'm back to "Real interested" and would like an update before I pull the trigger.

Re: Why Is Passenger Asked For I.D.?

Rule #1 is Never consent to a warrantless search. Never. There is no chance it can be a positive experience, but a non-zero probability it could be very negative. If it looks like they are going to do it anyway, state loudly and clearly “I do NOT consent to this search”. Rule #2 is never give a LEO ...

Re: TN: Waffle House shooting leaves 4 dead, several injured

No mention of Shaw getting shot, but he did burn his hand on the barrel. I'm not sure that the dad broke any federal laws, but probably broke an Illinois law or two. https://www.thedailybeast.com/waffle-house-shooter-travis-reinking-got-ar-15-back-from-his-dad-james-shaw-took-it-away-and-stopped-a-m...
