Re: Any Drop in the Polls for Hillary?

It won't affect her 'base', they lack the same scruples she does.

Be interesting to see if any of the 'Bernie' fans will come over to Trump.

Re: Why no Thumb Safety on a Carry Gun

Tuesday it finally happened. My dad told me it would and he was right. I found a snake in a nesting box stuffed with half a dozen eggs. Now I DO NOT like snakes especially if it is in a spot where I normally place my hands. So I go into the house and get the .22 pistol, a pair of gloves (I DO NOT l...

Re: LA: Alton Shering Shot by LEO

My objective every time I leave my house is to return safely. Same objective is held by LTC's. But I won't put YOUR life in danger to insure that mine is not. I want both of us to 'go home' at the end of the day and no ones rights to be abused in the process. I am sure we agree on that. It doesn't ...

Re: Hillary found to be extrememly careless, but not criminal

While it is good to know all the intricacies of the foul play that has transpired, in the end...the answer is much simpler: Moral Decay! Most 'politicians' will bend to corruption, dishonesty or deceit to achieve personal gain. Few would relinquish or put at risk their 'Job' in order to do the right...

Re: LA: Alton Shering Shot by LEO

flintknapper - I completely understand your perspective on this but those "creeds" are intended for two different audiences. The first is obviously intended for the "bad guys". The second is intended for everyone. Peace Officers are duty bound to protect all persons, including those that break the ...

Re: LA: Alton Shering Shot by LEO

Concealed carry/open carry has created a new dynamic for peace officers to deal with. Training has to be adjusted in some way to allow for this change without jeopardizing officer safety. I was trained to immediately yell "gun" to other officers present if a gun was spotted in a vehicle or on a per...

Re: Hillary found to be extrememly careless, but not criminal

Still think the AG meeting with Slick Willy was just talking about grandkids? :banghead: Even if this were true...no other 'conversation' was needed. A/G got her 'start' because of the Clinton's. Nothing had to be 'said'. The message was 'delivered' the moment Bill entered her private plane. I coul...

Re: Hillary found to be extrememly careless, but not criminal

The fix is in. The 'fix' was in months ago folks. The A/G was just 'priming' us recently when she said "she would accept the recommendation of the FBI". POTUS, A/G and the Clinton's all knew....there would be nothing to worry about. In the end...have the head of the FBI make a somewhat scathing spe...

Re: The years is half over and I haven't seen an open carrier yet

OC'd this weekend on a trip to Austin to visit my Brother. Several stops at gas stations, convenience stores, couple of car lots, car wash. Trip to San Antonio, Car dealership. Walked through his neighborhood (with our Dachshund) at Point Venture. Lots of folks out doing the same. A few looks...but ...

Re: TX: Fushear mom shoots/kills her two daughters, gun supporter.

Horrible. Hard to imagine that some degree of mental illness or lack of medication was not at play. I can't fathom a 'family argument' turning into a double murder and one attempted murder. Crimes of 'passion' certainly happen, but this just doesn't add up. Mental illness on the other hand: http://w...

Re: FS: Winchester Model 12

No I also think it well worth the asking price, but SWMBO has put me on a gun buying hiatus for a while, (I messed up and told her that with my son's new rifle I will have to get a bigger safe if I buy anothe...

Re: new to Texas! got some questions...

The OP didn't ask, but He/She should become familiar with our Motorist Protection Act....as it relates to vehicle carry for those who qualify. No license required, but has certain restrictions.

Re: Down with the quickness

How much longer can the media take such hysteria seriously when it is so at odds with the facts? Forever! Liberals (of which the media is mostly comprised) do not care about 'facts'. Liberals move on EMOTION, not facts, not logic, not reason, not honesty. We should not give an inch, NO MORE concess...
