Re: Checked baggage containing a firearm.

I just retired from AA and I fly with a checked firearm every couple of weeks. Yes there are rules but nobody seems to know them. Tsa has agreed that "tsa locks" are ok for firearms and you are not " giving them the key or combo for it." That's what I use and it's best. They rarely need to open a ba...

Re: Why do you choose OWB or IWB or Shoulder?

After 20 years of IWB, I find that retirement has shifted me to OWB 95% of the time, with pocket carry making up the rest. Wearing untucked shirts and cargo shorts has a lot to do with it.

Re: Every day hearing protection

I wear "behind the ear" hearing aids with hard acrylic ear molds. The ear molds do not pass through outside sound. In fact, at the range I just turn off the aids and presto! Top-quality hearing protection. I have hearing loss but I still "feel" every noise. Loud noises are just as painful as they we...

Re: Tell us your opinions and experiences

I'm sure I'll have more to add to this soon since I am currently helping a girlfriend to find an EDC. My trouble is I'm a bit lumpy and my idea of concealable is different than what is concealable on her very thin frame with close-fitting attire. I've stressed the #1 thing is to get a gun that she w...

Re: Discharging firearm in a residential area

Over the Years I've relied on one question to determine IF I should/could/would do something that is borderline illegal or just in a gray area, and It is a question I think any texas court must take into account. "Is it reasonable and prudent" that I choose that course of action, or inaction as the ...

Re: Lost my pistol - should I report it?

Yes, definitely report it as lost. He may get some runaround as a LEO may be hesitant to take a report on something that occurred out of his jurisdiction. But it'll usually go down as an incident report and entered into NCIC so being persistent with his local PD or SO may work out. Thats what I did....

Re: Eye Surgery

Since you initially mentioned concern with your eye affecting your shooting, I'll add my 2 cents about that. After being t-boned at 75mph I had many broken bones, and my left eye was dangling outside of my face by the nerves. I have a rebuilt eye socket and I see fine. First thing I did was go to th...

Re: Revolver help

I've carried a Taurus 85CH (5 shot .38 with concealed hammer, 1990's era) since early '90's. +P silver tips were a breeze to shoot. It was lost in a horrible motor vehicle accident and I have searched for a new one but am just about decided on a Taurus 85 and having a shop just remove the hammer spu...

Re: Realization comes home - always carry. Even at home.

Many years ago I used to razz a fellow Jailer for carrying his 1911 on his hip while mowing his yard. He wasn't from here. Chicago, if I remember correctly. He was just early to the party because a few years later,hearing of a robbery in a person's own front yard is now common here. I carry a .380 i...

Re: Posted but manager says ignore it?

I had this issue come up with a place I like to eat at. It's usually because that's where "the gang" is meeting at. They recently posted both 06 and 07. I didn't know the manager but a friend did so I got her information and made a pre-printed "permission slip" (feel like I'm in Jr. Hgh again) with ...

Re: Lubbock PD Range Closed - ND Related

Wow! Not a great month for Lubbock. Here in Corpus Christi I know of 3 ND's in fairly recent years. Sheriff Deputies were at the range WITHOUT a range master and some rounds went over the berm. This was apparently a common occurrence as a Rancher had complained several times of rounds hitting his ro...

Re: Motorcycle accident interactions

Glad you are going to be OK. I recently had the same thing happen to me, although I was driving the minivan at the time and hit by an uninsured driver. I still am unable to ride my Honda due to injuries and that part stinks. However, I also had great interaction with DPS with my firearms. Trooper to...

Re: How many times should you shoot someone in your home?

Yes, fire 'til the threat is eliminated. Maybe that one round knocks him down or scares him so bad he runs away, but don't count on it. My 2 cents worth? In one shooting I was involved in, one deputy emptied his magazine, but it was the one, well-placed shot from a reserve deputy's revolver that ult...

Re: Other states CHL

Washington arrived in the mail today. I applied for it while in port on a riverboat cruise. Very simply done in person at a Sheriff's office and no training is required. The only deal is you must apply in person in Washington. License and fingerprint fees came for $50.75 total. Now I can carry in Wa...

Re: Favorite Pocket Carry Pistol

My all-time favorite was my Taurus 85CH loaded with winchester silvertip +p .38 spcl. No snags, always functioned and surprisingly as accurate as my 4" revolver at 25 yards. A great sentimental loss as it had been in two shootings with me. Sadly, I lost it in the wreck that put me in a coma. Pretty ...
