Re: LTC individual has ND at Houston Galleria

This is what happens when (1) you carry with a round in the chamber, and (2) when you fail to properly secure your handgun. Bad press for all of us who safely carry. The anti-gunners of course will jump on this one. Hold on there partner. Carrying a round in the chamber is perfectly ok. There is no...

Re: LTC individual has ND at Houston Galleria

He must have a criminal charge pending to lose the license. If DA rejects charge, he's ok. Well, he may be okay with respect to his legal record and CHL/LTC. But he's still an absolute idiot, so he's far from okay in that regard. Stupidity hurts. :iagree: I would expect something like this from the...

Re: Research Help Needed!

I know it's been mentioned, but I think that it bears repeating, the cited case is not what was described in the OP (person charged and convicted for walking past a gun buster sign). This is a totally different animal. Although I disagree with the verdict, many on this forum, myself included, have s...

This case is a perfect example of why you keep your mouth shut until you have legal representation.

Re: AR10. To do or not to do

One more option to through in the mix:
300 blackout upper to replace one of my 5.56 uppers instead of the AR10.
Pros and cons...go.

Re: Battle rifle???? Really?

Most of the ARs shown here would be considered "assault" rifles if they had a bayonet attachment. Seriously? Google it..... even has a link from your post. This is the first result I got from google: "The U.S. Army defines assault rifles as "short, compact, selective-fire weapons that fire a cartri...

AR10. To do or not to do

Over the last few years I've built an AR15 for every member of the family. Having that out of the way, today while walking thru the Big Town gun show I was thinking about possibly adding an AR10 to the safe collection. Pretty amazing how much a base model AR10 has come down in price. Here is my dile...
