I'd be up for that. Though I'll be moving this weekend out to the hill country, I'll still be commuting to SA till the end of the summer for school and work.

Skiprr, after thinking about it I do think you're right about not focusing on the small negatives, but rather the big positives. That line was from my CHLs are model citizens themed slide about our safety record, far less likely to commit crime than average person, etc. After being presented in that...

Yeah, I've already warned her about the recoil. She's fired guns many times before, just doesn't want to have to deal with carrying. Such a small gun might make it easier for her to imagine. She see's all that I go through putting on and taking off holsters and just doesn't want the hassle I imagine...

I'd happily invite you guys out into the hill country if you're looking for a safer place to live. One of the big reasons I'm leaving SA for good in a few weeks.

Glad you found something you're happy with, Steyr or not. I was lucky enough to buy one from CDNN's last batch for $299 plus 4 mags. I did get to handle one at a gun show before ordering though.

Well my Steyr I started shooting immediately (FFL transfer to the shooting range). I just got a P3AT today and plan on doing some polishing and lubricating before shooting for the first time. If it weren't for me not being able to take a trip to the range in the next couple days I probably would for...

Thanks! I also forgot to mention that my wife got really excited when I showed her this gun. Whenever we pass by the gun counter at a store, and I stop for a few seconds to see what's available, I always say something like, "Hey, that's a nice gun for you... I'll get you that for your birthday," but...

Yeah, I guess for school I really didn't have copyright issues in mind (though I did site the source for the picture in another document). My only reservation about using that picture is the negative portrayal of handguns, though I also wanted to show just how twisted this guy was and the gravity of...

I am hoping that all restrictions to places will be removed next session, except 30.06 and a few others. Forget parking lots, go for the big picture!

Governor Perry agrees with this.

Well I made the purchase today. It didn't have a hard chrome slide, but when i saw it, I thought it was equally sexy, if not more so. Here's the new addition next to my other (only) carry gun. Been using the OWB holster the last couple weeks. What a relief! Smart Carry's are good and all, but I can ...

How about the windshield thing though, does that cover you? The law doesn't say much about where it has to be posted.

Excellent poster. Perhaps it can be used before the 2009 session. Lol! I would be honored. Thanks for the compliments. Even though I'm leaving school, I'm trying to get more young people interested in CHL. I'm 23 and don't want to see my rights slowly die off as I get older if my generation doesn't...

My Advocacy Ad for CHL Carry in Schools (School Project)

I'm finally getting around to graduating college. I'm a senior in Freshman Composition II. Kind of waited till the last minute to knock that one out. Anyway, for our final project we got to make an advocacy ad about a topic of our choice. Naturally I chose concealed carry in schools, as it's somethi...

I've been driving my car for over two years with no front license plate. I didn't know anyone actually got pulled over for something like this (though I do know it isn't exactly legal). To those in the know, does sticking the plate on your dash up against the windshield count?

SAXET gun show tomorrow, San Antonio *updated with pic*

Just curious if anyone will be going. SA get's a two-fer this month with the SAXET show. It'll be at Alzafar Shrine tomorrow and Sunday.

I might be tempted to pick up a P-3AT if I can find exactly what I want for a decent price (hard chrome finish, 2nd gen).
