Re: Recommendations for a Cock-On-Closing Bolt Action Rifle

I am a little confused and not sure I understand the issue. I believe that the precision uses the same bolt set up as my Ruger Scout. Mine started off a little stiff. but after a couple of boxes it loosened up a lot and is now slick and smooth. The Scout does have a the removable Buttpad spacers so ...

Re: TX:The mean streets of Houston

What do we think we're up to, 93? At first I thought HPD would be releasing statistics only once per quarter, but it looks like it's every month...only it takes 5 or 6 weeks to update the Excel spreadsheet. Latest version, January through April, is here: https://www.houstontx.gov/police/cs/xls/NIBR...

Re: Man who died from knee to neck was from Texas

Officer's involved need to be looked at, we know in Houston there are a few bad eggs within the police department. Does not give people the right for civil disobedience, part of the blame is this damn virus. People are cooped up, no money coming in and they need to vent. Any time people are unhappy...

Re: After Action Analysis (George Floyd): May 27, 2020

Hurling rocks at people is deadly force not a protest. Burning people’s property is not a protest. Burning the Police Precinct is not a protest. Beware when we call good evil and evil good. We have lost all civility in what is supposed to be the most civil Country in the World. I have all kinds of ...

Re: Man who died from knee to neck was from Texas

Agree about it getting bad. Protesting is one thing and completely reasonable right now. But ceding a police station is going to set the wrong precedent in my opinion. I don't wish for more confrontation but you do have to set some boundaries to civil discourse especially when the government largel...

Re: Man who died from knee to neck was from Texas

Something is wrong in Minnesota, Philando Castile, Justine Damond and Ahmaud Aubrey. I don't think it's racism, just a willingness to kill.

I understood it when they attacked the police station, but Target didn't do anything wrong.

Re: Andrew M. Cuomo

The USS Comfort treated very few, and was sent home because it wasn't used. Coumo preferred to use the nursing homes. He, like Muscillini did keep the trains running.

Re: Corona Virus Tryant Marquette Co Wisconsin

I read about this a little while back and while it seems crazy at first it may boil down to the school trying to keep the girl from causing a panic over something that isn't confirmed. Kinda like the whole "yelling fire in a crowded theater thing." Sometimes there is a legitimate reason t...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

And just so everyone is clear, the price for WTI crude is down to 10/bbl. The price for Brent crude is still in the 22/bbl range. I am not as clear on the differences between the two as I would be if I were investing in them, but I know there are chemical differences between the two. I believe that...

It was big news 15 hours ago that oil had hit $15 a barrel for the 1st time in 21 years. Now it's touched $11 a barrel. The website https://oilprice.com/ is currently timing out due to all the traffic hitting it. The price of oil and the bottom having dropped out of demand globally is the economic ...
