Re: Finally

Congrats. Ridiculous wait time though. I'm going on just over 3 months waiting. Ironically my friend did all his stuff two weeks after I did and he got his today; mine still has yet to begin being processed according to the website. The CHL division of Texas DPS is a pretty shoddy operation if you ...

Re: TX courts stymied re: Disarming domestic violence BG's.

According to the article, both of these federal and state laws need to be null and void. Laws stripping Americans of Natural Rights should apply to all citizens regardless of their status in society. Looks to me like a tyrannical jack booted Law was put in place... "Under federal and state law, it ...

Or a commissioned security guard, or a non commissioned security guard who meets specific requirments, or are a person in his own vehicle or one under his control, or are traveling, or meet other exceptions. :cheers2:

Re: Is it legal to carry a collapsible baton in texas?

It is NOT illegal to carry a club, which is what an ASP or collapsable baton is, everywhere off of your property. Penal code 46.02 prohibits the carry of a club unless you are own your own premises or premises under your control, OR inside of of en route to a motor vehicle you own or is under your c...

Re: Advice for ladies

I've never bought or sold a used gun, but I think I'd probably ask my local range about meeting in their lobby. I suspect they'd be accommodating, no one would be alarmed at the sight of the gun, and the nature of the employees and patrons there would seem likely to discourage criminal behavior. Mo...

Re: Real Common Sense Response to Gun on Campus

It's a private University, the student did not have a CHL and when seconds count the police are minutes away. The point of the post was to show there was no lock down mode or over reaction. That the University did not take disciplinary action against the student. They had him take the guns home at ...

Re: Driving While Carrying

I can't imagine trying to twist my arm around to that position in a car if it were needed... I imagine he is left handed I understand that, but unless you're driving in the UK, you have a door right there, and 8 o'clock is behind you, if you're seated in your car and you need your gun for...say a r...

Re: Real Common Sense Response to Gun on Campus

Now that school is out I thought I would tell about an incident that occurred on the University Campus where I work. This happened back in January. One of the University custodians was cleaning and found a DPMS box in the trash in front of one of our residence halls. It was on my day off so the Saf...

Re: 1 less BG - Marine CHL holder stops NE Houston Robbers

Great on his part. He likely has more extensive training than most. I've wondered what I would do. I have to say my first thought is get home...if I was inside I am certain I would engage. I don't want to say he was acting like a LEO, but is he justified to use force in this incident. If that is a ...

Re: Sonic & Chili's: Leave your guns at home

I will really be disappointed if Chili's throws up a 30.06 sign. I frequent their establishment at least once every couple of weeks. I spend a lot of dollars there but will no longer if they decide to refuse me the right to protect myself and my family members. A 30.06 sign, in fact not being able ...

Re: I accidentally made my company re-write their weapons po

I had a similar situation with a previous employer. I basicly told them "Your rules apply to me only when I'm on your clock. You control how I do my job, you do not control how I live my life." I guess I'm missing something here. It was understanding that the company rules prohibited him from carry...
