Re: Speeding in a School Zone

Plano PD employs an unmarked navy blue Tahoe for traffic enforcement. When he's working an area, he writes plenty of tickets. One day, during school zone hours, I was driving behind him, we were both doing the required 20 MPH. Who zooms up on us, passing on the right, was a man in a suit, driving a ...

Re: Fort Fisher

Thumbs up on the Texas Ranger Museum! I have been there and there's plenty to see. It displays many vintage firearms (lots of Ranger 1911's). It even has a 1911 that was found in Clyde Barrow's car at the time he was dispatched to meet his Maker. I'm not sure if I saw this in the Ranger Museum, or s...

Re: DFW Way Out West Breakfast

Today at Hudson Oaks' Manny's Cafe, there were 5 of us in attendance: Excaliber, C-dub, hackjob, strogg, and myself. Anyone need to build their own suppressor? hackjob schooled us on the details. See some or all of you next month, either 3rd Saturday at Rudy's BBQ/Arlington, or 4th Saturday at Manny...

Also, in case of an active shooter, does the child have the foresight to put it on quickly? Should he/she shield their head, or COM?

Re: Nobody but the squad

Recently I saw a news piece that cheered me up. AOC's fundraising results to date indicate that she has about zero support in her OWN district. Only 10 people from her own district have contributed a paltry total of cash to her. Hopefully this is a positive sign that her constituents are aware of he...

Re: Video: Inside WV's federal firearm tracing center.

I knew from the moment I filled out a 4473 for the first time, that it could later be easily used as a registration tool, or a means of tracking me. I mean come on, you’re filling out federal documents with all of your information, a serial number and description of the firearm. It's possible, yes....

Re: Big Thanks to Joe817!!

Kudos from me to you joe817. Think of the differences between small Texas towns from the 1800's and today's heavily urban Texas. So many of those towns that had small populations of only 200 or 500 or 1,000 had a large number of businesses and schools. Those pioneers were go-getters who started stor...
