Re: Ikea in Houston

This is why I like reading this forum. Creative thinking, good advice, good debates and good humor. Laughing out loud while learning is just good stuff!

Re: Interresting twist ...

I considered, thought and read before taking the CHL class. I was glad I did because the instructor didn't give any further references for people to learn more. To his credit, he allowed me a bit of class time to discuss what I'd read through many magazines and quite a few books. I certainly look at...

Excellent food for thought. Great beginnings for ensuring you have a plan of action for the what ifs of the home environment.

Re: At what age did you become a CHL holder ?

About age 40 when having young children brought more responsibility, a decreased awareness and ability to evade - not going to leave 'em temporarily or permanently with anything and everything I can do about it.

Re: Taste of Texas Posted

This sounds like my 1994 decision never to buy a Ruger. Ruger was discriminating against employees who rode motorcycles, saying employees had to wear helmets or would get no insurance benefits in spite of state laws that did not require helmets. Quite positively, employees along with the American Mo...

Please sign me up too. I am in Ohio every July and have been looking for this opportunity. I'll be there again this July and hope to have the Utah permit to cover the visit.

Re: How young is too young?

I've taken my kids shooting at the in-laws "back 40" with a .22 rifle or at home in town, with airsoft / BB guns. They started at age 4-5 give or take. We have a small back yard so I made a backstop of a wooden frame and stapled a t-shirt or two to the back of it. They draw their own targets on heav...

Re: Need Self Defense Ideas for 20 yr. old Female

I second that mind-set is the first step - awareness, reality and decision making. One of the books I recommend is The Gift Of Fear and Other Survival Signals That Protect Us From Violence by Gavin de Becker. de Becker is an anit-gun guy but very good with all other things that describe responsibili...

Re: Tuckable Holsters

I have had a High Noon Holsters "Closing Argument" in horsehide and like it. It's quite tuckable, comfortable, stable while walking or running (short distances) and can shift enough while sitting to be comfortable too. I've not tried other composites but the draw from mine is nice and smooth.

I've gone over 50K miles on the road with no accidents because I never threw a leg over without thinking today could be the one fateful day if I didn't pay attention. Longest trip was ...

Re: Summer Road Trip

Be aware that OH doesn't recognize TX CHL and they have some odd laws of keeping things separated in different compartments of the vehicle as well as locked up etc. There's a thread on here somewhere, "legal carry in every state" or something like that and you'll find info on creatively covering CHL...

Re: Walking through 30.06 signs

Great discussions here. My solution is to use the power of the pen with those who create victim rich zones, letting them know I'll certainly vote with my wallet and discourage others from patronizing. I also include references to various pro self-defense texts which I recommend they read (I know, I ...
