Ouch! Some people on the forum didn't pay that much for their first car.
$100. Do I win for the lowest?

Honestly, If I received a $500 ticket, my wife would kick me out of the car and make me thumb my way home.
You got me beat. I paid $125 for my '49 Plymouth in 1959.

Re: Carrying at the Post Office

Well I'm a bit different here. I go to the post office at least once or twice a week mailing paperwork packets to clients and to the FAA.

Re: HPD Citizen Patrol program

I guess I don't see the problem. What would prevent you from patrolling your neighborhood without being on a "Citizen Patrol"? Does it give you any authority that you don't already have?

Don't sign anything an patrol as an independent.

I took a "razor" knife (Exacto with new blade) and cut a small chamfer all around the back edge of my "Super-Tuck".
Made a world of difference.

Re: Glass doors and home security

Be careful using security film on thermal pane glass doors. Check with the door manufacturer. They usually recommend against it and will not honor any warranty.

Re: Suggestions for a portly man

The guys at the gun shop and additional research have made me reconsider. I'm now leaning towards a Kahr P haven't settled on the 9 or the 40 yet. It is pretty thin but I really like the way it feels in my hand. It really seemed to fit. I'll keep everyone posted. I carry a Kahr P9 and am very happy...

Re: Need help with Holster(s)

I wear a Galco USA (horse hide, around $60). It allows the shirt tail to be tucked in and it conceals beautifully.
I have a Kahr P9.
The only thing that shows is a 1/4" square clip at the bottom of the belt. With a black belt even that disappears.

Re: Utah or Texas ? Or.....Both ?

$215.25 for a Utah CWP only class? Jeez. Let's see. If the instructor collects the license fee Utah ($65?) and bundles range fees with a rental gun and ammo, eye protection and hearing protection ($40), then he's charging $110.25 for his training. Actually it sounds to my like he's getting it all. ...

A little background. Live in Farmersville, TX, about 40 miles northeast of Dallas. Been pilot and aircraft builder since 1967. Wife & I have our own little private airport as retirement home. I figured I needed a protection plan for our place. I have a Kahr P9.
