Camp Mabry

Taking boy child to a 4-H BB gun competition at Camp Mabry in Austin in a couple of weeks. I've seen other discussions about firearms on post but haven't been able to find a clear answer so I stopped by the guard house last weekend and asked a guard. His response was no firearms, no exceptions, leav...

Visitor?

Every school I know of currently requires all visitors to check in and wear some sort of visitor badge. My thought is that if you must sign it to visit the school but not sign it to enter the library you are OK to carry. Is there a door, sign, turnstile, person at a desk, or anything to notify you o...

Nice Work

Making your own stuff isn't the only way to get exactly what you want but it tends to be faster, less expensive, and a lot more satisfying.
I've always figured the educational value of it as a bonus.

Enjoy!

eezox

My SS Commander is willing to rust on the frame under the grips. No problems since I started using eezox. Every couple of weeks I'll take the grips off and rub the frame as part of it's preventative maint.

Enjoy!

cant

I'm skinny, 5'9" with long arms & carry an all steel Commander. I started with a VM2. It was pretty comfortable but printed badly when I sat or bent and I had to lift my arm an awkwardly long ways to draw. Since I have tweaked pretty much everything I've owned to suit me I went to work on t...

Thanks

It was longer than that, but very well may have included that wording. We don't have to go this weekend but will likely be back some time in the future so I'll copy it down and verify that it matches or not. She purse carries (which I'm not a fan of BTW) so all it would really take is for me to carr...

Hospital carry again

Went with DSW to the Fredericksburg hospital last weekend. Sign on the entrance states no firearms allowed under state law. 44.18 I think? No longer true, right? So in we go without disarming. She has to go through the admission process every time we do this even though all they're doing is drawing ...

signage

Went with DSW to the hospital in Fredericksburg for some bloodwork Saturday. They have the old state law sign, no 30.06. We never broke stride.

Take care of yourself Pax, those kiddos are missing you!

I didn't compete but was a club member. Fairly close to home and I could take the kids during the week when nobody else was there.

Nimitz

Nimitz museum in Fredericksburg is a should do. I don't know if it's 30.06, I haven't been there in a few years and was with a school group at the time. Doubt that it is, very few places around there are.

WTB Crescent SXS

Father-in-Law has a Crescent New Empire in .410 that's missing a forend.
Looking to buy either the complete forend or a whole gun if the price is easy enough. Wood condition not important.
Any ideas/suggestions most welcome and appreciated.

Thanks!

sturdy?

I've got one of the COM boxes and they are tough enough to defeat curious children and typical smash & grabbers, but I would imagine that a determined individual with a large screwdriver would be able to get in it. I've also taken a cheap cashbox and drilled two holes through the side to run a c...

<80

Sent 5/16/06, PINs sent 6/12/06, web confirmation 8/02/06, licenses in on 8/04/06. Exact same dates for both me & DSW.
I haven't counted exact days, but it's roughly 80 from mailbox to mailbox.
Paid with USPS money order, no problems with paperwork or background checks.

Enjoy!
