Re: Trump: Banning Suppressors?

Bump stocks being banned is more than a 2A right. It is government confiscation without reimbursement of legally owned property. Same thing if they confiscate land that you own to build a shopping center. The issue of the government stealing your private property that previously was legal to own is...

Re: Gun Storage programs in Texas?

Just an update, while checking my email I saw Alice Tripp had sent out an email with the subject line of "Balanced and Rhetoric Free" that contained a quote from an email sent by Joe Bartozzi. He is the president of the NSSF and in his email he says: This year, we are happy to announce that we have ...

Re: An Important Message to NRA Members

So as NRA members we are supposed to just accept that our dues and contributions are being funneled to the political campaigns of those who wish to destroy not only the 2nd Amendment but the NRA itself without expressing any concerns? That members are actually supporting the agenda of those who ref...

Re: Gun Storage programs in Texas?

I tracked down what I believe is the actual legislation, this snippet is from HB1: 48.Statewide Safe Gun Storage Campaign. Included in the amounts appropriated above in Strategy G.1.1, Headquarters Administration, is $500,000 in fiscal year 2020 and $500,000 in fiscal year 2021 in General Revenue to...

Re: Gun-handling - Ken Hackathorn and Bill Wilson go off

Simple question.....If YOU think that it is a 'bad thing' to drop the slide with the supplied lever, then why is said lever shaped in such a manner to facilitate doing so? Simple solution.....Make YOUR gun without such a specifically shaped lever to do so. :roll: It's dropping slide without feeding...

Re: Gun-handling - Ken Hackathorn and Bill Wilson go off

Perfect. So please provide your risk assessment comparing the potential, as well actual, reliability failures across the two platforms based on recorded, verified lifetime field data. That would be highly instructive. And rest assured, I did not assume that your derogatory comment regarding "fanboy...

Re: Gun-handling - Ken Hackathorn and Bill Wilson go off

While the barrel lugs on a Glock don't take as much of a beating, they still get one and will show signs of damage after enough empty slide releases. The takedown lever "fix" only transfers the stress (and eventual damage) from the takedown lever to the locking block and frame. I saw a pre-gen3 Glo...

Re: An Important Message to NRA Members

Sadly Tom Gresham has jumped on the "NRA BAD!!!!" bandwagon based on his recent tweets. I even tweeted a link to a previous post from Charles and called Tom's attention to it. Got a boiler plate reply that referenced media statements made by NRA officials before Tom deleted his tweet. It's been a wh...

Re: WTB Ruger SA revolver .22 cal

Ruger has a new single action that is priced around $200 brand new. Or if you are looking for something a bit nicer call up Bobby at Tyler Gun Works in Friona.

Re: Speaker Bonnen sued in Federal Court for 1st amendment violations, blocking critics on Facebook

I see a reference to the Davison V. Randall decision which was a fourth circuit case that was never heard by the USSC IIRC, so how does that come into play as case law in the fifth circuit where a Texas citizen is suing a Texas official?

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

I’m aware of his efforts and I’m aware that I’ve personally benefited from them. Those past “rights” don’t fix this wrong. It’s a new day, with a huge mistake. He could have just said “I have no comment at this time” and been done. Now, he looks like he’s helping Wayne be a very well compensated, g...

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

All of that glosses over the meat of the subject. Wayne makes millions of dollars every year working for a “non-profit” using members dues. Then we find out he’s blowing 280 grand on clothes on rodeo drive, putting an intern up in a rented apartment and jetting all over using up even more money? If...

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

I think all executives making over $100,000.00 / year need to have term limits ( as I believe congress should have.) We need an audit by a reputable independent accounting firm and let the chips fall where they may. If anyone is opposed to such an audit then something fishy is most likely afoot. Th...
