Re: Massacre, hostage-taking in New York

The Saturday, 4/4/09 edition of the Dallas Morning News stated that the shooter had a "New York pistol license" and that the police verified that the 2 pistols used, a 9mm Beretta and a .45 Beretta, were linked with that license. What was unclear from this description was whether this "license" was ...

Denton Pizza Man robbed at gunpoint

On or about Thursday night, 4/2/09, a driver from the Pizza Hut store on University Avenue (US 380) was dispatched to a delivery. Upon arriving, a lone gunman ran up behind him and put a handgun directly to his head. Give me all your money. When the driver handed over the princely sum of $40 the rob...

Re: Attempted robbery proves fatal for one in Poteet

Criminals like to rob other criminals since they feel the victims might not report the crime. Even though the business of running the gambling machines was illegal the owner still had the right to have a handgun on his premises <unless he was a convicted felon?>. It would seem that although the owne...

Re: Would it be legal to shoot this guy in the back?

After perusing the law quoted in a post above it seems that a CHL customer of the bank would not be justified in shooting this perp since: 1. The robbery happened in the daytime, not the nighttime. We have more leeway if it's night. 2. Although we might be justified in shooting him to stop his escap...

Re: Church Carry - Reciprocity Question

Here's a cool little piece of trivia that y'all may or may not know. In "King of the Hill" the town they live in is Arlen, a city/suburban area of Texas, not a West Texas kind of town. Mike Judge, the creator of the show, lived in both Garland and Richardson, Texas. Arlen is his joking way of refere...

Re: Safety tips for women's defense (work for guys too)

During a kidnapping incident, the time when things are most "up for grabs" is at the beginning of the incident. Resist the bad guy's attempt to tighten his control over you. The bad guy is trying to get you under his control. Fight, fight, fight from the beginning. Do the most un-ladylike things you...

Re: 7 sheep(ets) waking

To TxDrifter, Hey, stay on your woman to follow through and get her CHL. She has the tool to protect herself (her .380) and she's gaining the skills to use it, so the next logical step is to have her get the CHL. You won't always be there with her with your gun when a 'situation' occurs. "Don't mess...

To Tallinthesaddle: I believe your geography would not work for this sale but Bass Pro Shops, until April 5, 2009, has brand new Taurus 1911B's on sale for $629.99. This one has Heinie "Straight Eight" sights and some other identification number in the ad is "1194354". I don't know if this is a Taur...

Re: Academy ammo sales

Maybe it's just the luck of the draw, but each time I go to the
Academy in Lewisville they seem to have plenty of ammo.
Last time I needed some 9MM I had the pick of many styles.

Re: looking for first 1911

To Liberty: Thanks for your response. To clarify my original post, there is no way that I was saying that a Ruger P89 is a 1911 type. I was just trying to say that the slim grip of a P89 seems similar to what I perceive is the slim appealing grip of a 1911. Somewhere on the forum here, I believe I r...
