Re: Compact 45 for concealment

I carry the xds45. Light weight. Bullet goes where I aim. 6 in the gun, 7 in the backup mag and I don't feel outgunned. Cons 1. The grip is very aggressive. Not for sensitive hands. 2. My, and a lot of other owners on their forum, 7 round mags took awhile to break in. It would basically misfeed a ro...

Re: NRA National Meeting May 3-6 -- Anybody Worried?

For all you out of towners, the DART line is nowhere near as complicated as it looks. The orange, red and blue lines all run directly through downtown and all 3 stop at the Convention Center. Then you walk a little over 150 yards (under a cover) and boom you are right there. The green line is a lit...

Re: Palo Duro Canyon State Park / Texas Outdoor Musical?

I saw the show 25 years ago. I still remember parts of it. Bbq dinner was good.

I was in the canyon last year with my kids. Stage looked the same but musical wasn't in season.

I didn't see any 30.06 signs up. It was off season for musical though. We were there to hike the canyon.

Re: NRA National Meeting May 3-6 -- Anybody Worried?

For those worried about parking, I have 2 solutions. (I've lived in Dallas almost all my life.) 1. Use DART Rail. Most train locations have parking lots and they are scattered all over Dallas. There are 3 within 5 miles of my house. The train stops at the Convention Center. You walk about 100 yards ...

I wouldn't have known either if I wasn't with an AZ resident.

Re: Revolvers

I carry one for sd when I find myself wearing athletic pants that have elastic waist bands.

Every once and a while it doubles as a bug.

Re: Road trip report

The bar should have provided you a locker to lock your gun in--at least the one I visited in Phoenix did. I kept the key while we were there and turned it back in when I retrieved my weapon.

Re: UT Austin - Question About Prospective Freshman Visit

I have not done the tour, but I was on campus last Saturday for Explore UT. I did not carry because it was a school field trip. That said, I didn't see many signs on campus. Gate 16 of DKRoyal stadium is not posted. We entered through that gate and walked directly onto the field. I never saw a sign.

Re: FL: Active shooter at high school in South Florida

somewhat related question.....a friend is posting memes that this is the "29th" school shooting of the year? Where can I find the truth? Earlier this year the New York Daily News reported KY as the 11th school shooting of the year. However, they only listed 5 in that article. A few days later NPR l...

Re: IL: Hoosier with LTCH kills robber in Chicago

It will be interesting to see if the IL resident is charged with UCW. Chas. He's dead. It would be interesting to see if the IN resident is charged for carrying and if he has to pay the fine and/or go to jail. Violators of the current law would be subject to a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up t...
