Re: Reported: Active shooter in Odessa, TX

Odessa PD is not publicly releasing the shooters name to avoid giving him any noteriety. This might actually help stop future shooters.

Re: Reported: Active shooter in Odessa, TX

One of the local Midland/Odessa TV stations, News West 9, is a repeat offender when it comes to showing an anti-gun bias. I am banned from posting to their facebook page after pointing out that one of their "news stories" on 'gun safety' had been printed over three years earlier by and that the orig...

Re: Reported: Active shooter in Odessa, TX

Just heard over the scanner in Seminole at 5:08PM that all DPS troopers in the area are en route to Odessa and that the SO has been tasked to handle their duties (like auto crashes) in the county.

Re: TSRA’s Alice Tripp announces retirement

I have had the pleasure of talking with Alice Tripp twice on the phone, once was with Charles Cotton and another party. I will miss knowing that Alice Tripp is fighting for us, but at the same time I hope Mike Cox lives up to the very high standard she set. For the record I suspect that Alice is the...

Re: Anyone here use SIG's Pro Shop?

Many years ago I purchased a police trade in P226, when the sig service plan was offered to me at 1/2 price and free shipping as part of a custom shop promotion I couldn't refuse. Been real happy with the gun. They did do a bit more work than the plan advertised but it didn't affect the cost. I have...

Re: Anti drone equipment

I'm wondering how the FAA would handle one drone accidentally crashing into another....call out the NTSB? For commercial operations it depends on a two factors (Per § 107.9): 1. Did anyone lose consciousness or receive any serious Injuries? 2. Was there damage to property other than the sUAS that w...

Re: NRA and Red Flag Laws

Re: Mass.: Magnet fishing. UZI, .40 Glock, Colt Cobra, 2 more HG's.

This sounds odd to me. Why in the world would someone go magnet fishing? To have a cover story. Commit the crime and toss the gun(s) in the pond, then go back years later and claim to have found them and call the police to notify them of what you found. They would never suspect the person that foun...

Deputy followed protocol, glad he did the right thing. Wonder how bad the stab wound was, hope he recovers and doesn't worry/feel bad about doing the right thing.
He is recovering just fine last I heard, he might even be back at work by now.

Re: Can I find out if an individual has a LTC

Is there somewhere I can check to see if a neighbor is licensed? I spoke to someone about this, the person stated it would be no problem to get the entire state of Tx Ltc holder's list. I'm guessing money would be needed for this information but the person did not say that?. I have no idea or clue ...

Re: How to Carry Cell Phone

I tend to carry my primary handgun on my right side (strong side) and everything else on my left (weak side). My cell is a Galaxy S8 in an otterbox w/ belt clip. I absolutely hate how big it makes the phone among other things but due to my work environment and other factors it protects the phone bet...

Another question? Is the 10mm and the 45 ACP same size as in using same holster, mag holders etc...?
Yes, you can even use .45 magazines in a pinch if you are careful, just be sure the cartridge doesn't jump ahead of the extractor.
