Re: What would you do?

Double tap to the head then drag him back into the house before the cops get there. Then tell the cops that you didn't mean to shoot him, but your revolver went off (twice) while cleaning it. Oh yeah and you were in fear of your life or something. :coolgleamA: We all know you believe yourself to be...

Re: What would you do?

I don't own anything that I'd be willing to take a life over. I always figured that I wasn't the one who decided his life was only worth a television, he made that decision when he decided to steal one. Seriously? And you actually possess a Texas License to Carry? Get some schoolin' my friend. Take...

Re: Bearding

Yeah; my bad. I spoke poorly when I said the stubble look wouldn't qualify as an intentional beard. Of course it does. And it has multiple advantages: you can do away with razor blades (mostly; some may still like to shave their necks or shape the line on the cheeks); you never have to worry about d...

Bearding

I know a few Forum members who have epic beards, The Annoyed Man and Wild Bill among them. This Topic is for those who currently have, are growing, or who are thinking about growing a beard. Not talkin' three-day scruff. But an intentional beard. Let's share experiences with grooming, maintenance, a...

Re: Attacker Complies But Does Not Retreat

The thing is, some of the answer depends on the age and condition of the LTC holder. I'm an old man, and I have a few orthopedic issues. I can't move like I used to be able to, and that limits my options to fewer choices. I begin with the assumption that I'm at a physical disadvantage, and go from ...

Re: Help me understand something

Another thing. I have never understood why a press check is needed. To me it isn't. If you know you left the gun loaded before you went to be and it hasn't been fired then why check in the morning and at night. If I want to know glock is loaded I can physically see the extractor poking out and if y...

Re: Help me understand something

Habitual behavior can become so automatic that the mind assumes it is done. This. Other than complete idiocy--like the story this week out of Houston where two young men were killed by the same gun supposedly because it "accidentally" went off all on its own--administrative handling of fi...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Politicial games. The Freedom Caucus, claims it wasn't good enough. The Leftist are jumpining with joy, the Establishment Republicans are claiming victory because the failure will be blamed on Democrats. We don't even know what the plan was. The only certainty is that American people continue to ge...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

I don't care about his barrage of attacks. I just care about his actions and accomplishments . 2nd amendment is the more important to me and many others. If he can't get the job done maybe we can find a real 2nd amendment President.... OMG, seriously? Let's see, Donald Trump was sworn in on January...

Re: Happy Texas Independence Day!

In light of current politics, it's ironic how many signatories were illegal aliens who came to Texas after April 1830. Hardly an apples-to-apples comparison. The Mexico Law of April 6, 1830 lasted less than three years at a time when the Mexican government was in an upheaval. And it tried to immedi...
