Re: 1-Day Ham Radio Class - Alvin Texas

Charles, I have decided that I would like to get started with Ham radio. Do you know if your friend will be offering this class again? I would like to start with a hand held and work with that for a while to see if I want to go further. If he is not offering the class again, do you have any recomme...

I wonder if it was so rapid this time due to the pressing and time sensitive nature of the issue or because of how easy it was to interpret and explain the law? :rules: :mrgreen:
Yes it was time-critical.

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

It's not possible to estimate the total number of deaths because it's impossible to get an accurate mortality rate. The current mortality rates published are grossly inaccurate because the ratio is being calculated by dividing the number of deaths by the number of confirmed cases. There are multiple...

Did the AG render an opinion on this? I just received an email from The Range at Austin that they are resuming operations for their retail shop starting tomorrow. They had been shut down for the shelter in place order here in Travis county.
No, it was just requested yesterday.

Dustin Burrows is an A-rated Republican and he's on our side. He's wants to get an AG opinion to head off any attempts by Democrats.

Re: Need help with “Essential Businesses”

I find it strange that Houston Galveston and New York refuse to shut down public transit systems. People crammed into tin cans coughing and sneezing all the while moving them across town. How is this safer than eating at your favorite restaurant? Leftist hate automobiles but love taxpayer funded tr...

Re: Practicing an old CQB point-shooting drill again

Chas, Is this the position you are referring to? https://blog.krtraining.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Fairbairn-half-hip-211x300.jpg or this? https://americanshootingjournal.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/close-hip-shooting.jpg Much closer to the 2nd photo, but squared-off to the target. Chas.

How big a cut will LaPierre take?
The 20% pay-cut is required, but some people are voluntarily taking an even larger cut. This includes Wayne LaPierre.

Re: Practicing an old CQB point-shooting drill again

Charles, You’ve been watching Correa's videos, I take it? Seems like he’s recently talked about not drawing on a drawn gun, and creating distractions. Not really. I've watched only 2 or 3 none of which dealt with drawing on a drawn gun or creating distractions. Not drawing on a drawn gun has been t...

Re: Practicing an old CQB point-shooting drill again

I decided to practice this drill yesterday because of recent security videos of CQB gunfights that I have watched. A key factor in surviving a surprise attack is having the self-control not to " draw on a drawn gun " but wait for an opportunity to draw when your attacker isn't looking. Things such a...

Practicing an old CQB point-shooting drill again

I used to teach and practice a very simple but critically important CQB drill that I have ignored for a number of years. It is shot at 3 and 5 yards. As I said, it's very simple but mastering this skill can be a live-saver in a deadly close-quarters encounter. At three yards using a timer, draw and ...

Why a new forum?

We have a lot of very good information dealing with training and practice drills that don't really have a home in any of the previously existing sub-forums. So, I started this one. The goal is to have a sub-forum that makes it easier for us to find suggested drills and practice routines. I don't hav...

Re: Need help opening ports

Well, the problem is solved, but this is interesting. If I run a port check from one of the many websites, the ports I opened in the Tenda router show to be blocked. However, when I run a "port check" in the software I need to use, the check shows all five ports to be "ok" meaning they are open. :h...
