Re: Joe Straus Reelected Speaker

He was unopposed. What else would could be expected? :headscratch To be opposed. I'm not a big Joe Straus fan but open carry did pass last session under his watch and I believe he had a hand in it. If he can help HB560 along to the floor for a vote, I'll give him a few points. :smash: <----- Joe St...

Re: Don't let a crisis go to waste: Florida Airport Shooting

The snowflakes ought to be glad it's only a random shooter here and there every so often instead of the suicide bombers. Far more death and destruction in those incidents. That would really hurt their "feewings"! :banghead:

Texas Rep. Armando Martinez shot in head, in stable condition

This will get the Democrats stirred up in Austin with some new anti-gun bills.

Re: Reloading: theory v. reality

On my AP with both Case feed and bullet feed, max cranking rate is 1,200 rds per min (I can do it). However, I would be happy maintaining 400 rds to 600rds per hr effective rate. Also, time to clean and preparing the cases is not included. Not to pick nits but I would like to watch you reload 1200 ...

Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

I was going to make HB560 the sole subject in a Tex. Leg. Report, but I may make it a TFC Short-Shot. I publish the transcript of Short-Shots (not Tex. Leg. Rpts.) and I'll include talking points, although they won't be titled as such. Chas. Charles, Did you get a chance to produce the TFC Short-Sh...

Renewal online 10-23-16 Received in mail 11-21-16 :tiphat: I noticed they changed from my original CHL photo to my drivers license photo. Guess they wanted a more recent picture of my mug. :lol: Sure glad they did that instead of asking for a new one which would have certainly delayed the process. ...

I want to think (hope) now that Trump is going to be the President and the threat of Obummer is about to go away that maybe the prices will drift downward in the future.

Ammo prices going down?

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed ammo prices going down a tad bit? I mainly focus on .223 and or 5.56 ammo and I have noticed a decrease roughly around 10¢ per round.

Anyone else seeing this or have I just not been paying attention lately :?:
