'Twas Nice Knowing You All

So I was tinkering around on the Internet during a recent business trip, and next thing I know I had purchased five firearms from Bud's Gun Shop: Marlin 1895 sbl .45-70 http://www.marlinfirearms.com/images/bigbore/zoom_1895sbl.jpg CMM MK4 T 5.56mm https://www.cmmginc.com/wp-content/uploads/pics/newp...

Checking a Firearm at a California Airport

I am going to be working in California quite a bit over the next few years. I have figured out the law about taking a firearm there and the ample restrictions. I'm just curious if anyone here has had any experience with declaring a firearm at a California airport. I will be using primarily San Franc...

Can you carry a firearm on a bus service?

So I am taking a new fancy-pants bus service between Houston and Dallas soon for work. I am not aware of any reason why I couldn't carry on the bus. I suppose it could be posted, but I doubt that it is (and I'm not even sure you can post an automobile). I'm most concerned that there is some obscure ...

Best Truck?

So I am thinking of selling my car and getting a full-size truck. I won't have much occasion, if any, to give it heavy duty action; it will be mostly a daily driver, while hauling the occasion large object. It has to seat five. What are your thoughts about the major makes?

Citizen Police Academy - Worth the Time?

I have been thinking of signing up for my police department's 12-week citizen police academy. I have always been interested in the police department (from afar) and would like to see how they operate and learn more about policy and procedure. It is basically 12 weeks, with a three-hour class held on...

Welcome aboard! I think I was more excited to get my paper from the FCC than my plastic from DPS.

Re: Loaning $

When I was in high school, I had a bundle of money from working. I lent my sister many thousand dollars because she was having trouble paying her student loans (her husband was in med school at the time). We did up a promissory note, complete with interest payment. It worked out just fine, though th...
