Re: Ammo and Flying

As a matter of fact, I'm flying to a wedding in Virginia tomorrow. My carry gun with a couple mags is already locked in a Secure-It safe, and a box of ammo (duct taped closed and in a Ziploc bag) is in my luggage. I've always just used the factory ammo box when flying with guns. It seems like the ea...

Re: glock 26 with rail?

Even though Glock 9mm models have been mostly reliable, it is known that other bigger caliber Glocks to have reliability issues with rail attachments, thus the reason for Gen 4 Glocks. Oakland PD recently recalled all their Gen 4 Glock .40's due to reliability issue with attachments. Personally, I'...

Re: Gun for left-handed wife?

Springfield EMP would fit your requirements well if she's willing to carry a single-action auto.

Re: CHL holder arrested driving drunk in Houston

I just want to slap people like this because they tarnish all of us. You never see a news story that says "Meanwhile, CHL holders committed fewer crimes today than policemen." That would be one interesting stat to see. I've looked for it, but nobody seems to collect stats on conviction rates among ...

Re: Plano School District has 30.06 posted parking lots

PISD's response, when contacted about this exact issue several years ago, was that: They are not a governmental body, they are an "Independant" school district, and that school property is private property, and the posting is valid, and they will arrest and prosecute. I'm sure they'd disagree that ...

Re: Texas Knife Laws - New Info

This was discussed around here a lot several years back. The conclusion seemed to be (per Mr. Cotton IIRC) that the intention of the legislature was to make §46.02 non-applicable to CHLs for handguns only. ...son just moved to San Antonio...believe they have an ordinance against any lockback knife c...

Re: This whole SWAT thing is getting a little out of hand

They've been 'out of hand' since their inception. They were originally concieved for hostage rescue situations (interest began after the botched rescue of the Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics), which are of course extremely rare. As originally concieved, I could see justification for at...

Re: This whole SWAT thing is getting a little out of hand

Even if it was the Dept of Ed OIG doesn't mean it wasn't a SWAT team as well; virtually all law enforcement agencies have a SWAT team (who doesn't like to get dressed up like a ninja and play soldier?). Regardless, breaking down the door to serve a warrant for a non-violent offender is overkill. Wha...

Re: Weiner admits all & MORE!

For me to be disappointed by this would mean I'd have to hold respect for politicians in the first place.

I don't see that this makes him unfit to hold office. That's for the voters in his district to decide next year. If he's reelected, they get the representation they deserve.

Re: Baltimore Police Issue 2nd Amendment Decal Warning

Sad, but about what I expect from Baltimore. The rest of the state both east and west is much more gun-friendly (western MD is more akin to West Virginia than Baltimore), but Baltimore and the DC suburbs dominate the state population-wise, and the gun laws reflect that. Maryland Shall-Issue is the m...
