Re: Ruger LC9S - Beware!

n5wd, You posted: "Why are you blaming Ruger for a after-market products problems? Seems unreasonable." Read my post a bit more carefully. As I previously posted, the after market magazine is a RUGER OEM product, just like the pistol. I would think me unreasonable too if the magazine was ...

Re: Ruger LC9S - Beware!

...As mentioned earlier, not only did the pistol itself present multiple failures, the after market Ruger mfg. extended magazine failed. That's too many failures for me to find acceptable. <snip> Raspberrys to Ruger... Can you tell my patience towards Ruger and it's product failures is showing? Why...

Re: Shotgun selection

So my daughter is in FFA and she comes home from school telling me about a shooting group that will be shooting sporting clays. I have no firsthand knowledge in this area. But it seems a good excuse to buy her a shotgun that she can learn with, and decide if she likes the sport.... Any help would b...

Re: Need help - our new employee got arrested a week ago

Arrested, or convicted? Are you under the federal 'drug free workplace' initiative? Do your terms of employment require the employee to reports arrests/convictions? Texas is an 'at will' employment state, so unless you have a contract with her in place, you can release her from employment for any r...

Re: Just wanted to share

I am seeing a lot of listings that do not include mineral rights. How does that typically work? If someone else owns the mineral rights, I'm assuming I would potentially need to give them access to get to those minerals (set up wells, do some digging, etc). How intrusive is this in general? I'm jus...

Re: Holiday Shopping: AmazonSmile & the NRA

And while the NRA is certainly a deserving charity, don't forget that there are others included in the program, that are also worthy. My meager .05% is directed to the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial Fund, Inc., for example.

Re: Arp adds high school clay shooting team

Competitive shotgun shooting is pretty firmly established in a lot of high schools in Texas already. The Youth Target Foundation is one such umbrella organization that's available to schools in Texas and Oklahoma. You can get a lot more information, including whether any of your local schools are al...

You might suggest she check with her school's Student Affairs office, or the Student Union to see if self-defense/martial arts are taught on-campus. Also the PhyEd/Athletics folks may have courses available, as well.

Re: Best route through Houston.

BTW - I second the suggestion to arrive in Galveston the day before. We did that over a Christmas cruise a couple of years ago. We stayed at the Inn at the Waterpark, one of the hotel/motels that offered covered parking for our vehicles behind a security fence. Turned out they had great security, co...
