Re: Houston West Quadrant Breakfast

I'm going to do my best guys. My daughter has a swim meet in the afternoon on Saturday and Sunday, so I might not be able to break free in the morning.

Re: Advice from seasoned travelers

Oh yeah, and you can't use your LTC for ID here in Texas...but the folks in California usually accept it. It's quite the conversation starter.

Re: Self driving vehicles creep me out. How will feds mandate purchases?

I don't currently embrace this technology, but I could see a situation where it could be (slowly) implemented safely. Here in Houston, I live out on the west side of town. Right down the middle of I-10, we have the four managed lanes of traffic. If you enter those, you'll either be paying a toll or ...

Re: Pennsylvania Dutch food

Birch Beer... is the A-Treat brand?

If so, I’m coming to Kemp for a visit.

You are a indeed a good man, and a great guy do do business with. I've never met a gun store owner as committed to his customers' happiness as you were. Sorry to hear that you're closing, but I wish you the best in your future endeavors - and little Miss Bella sends her best (she always liked coming...

Question about Carrying into a Correctional Facility

I'm a new instructor, and I'm putting together my training materials. To be honest, I've had a good grip on the 'where can I carry / where can I not carry' for some time, but since I'm going to teach this stuff, I'm really doing my best to understand it more fully. In doing so, I've run into somethi...

Re: Jury duty in Houston tomorrow

I hope I get picked one day. The government doesn't trust me to carry as a juror, so I don't trust the testimony of anybody who carries as a witness. ... The sides in a civil trial can become quite heated, and in a criminal trial you have, quite possibly, a very violent person on trial for (fill in...

Re: H.R.38: National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

It's most definitely an uphill battle, but it's a battle we must wage. It's time for everyone to call and write their Senators, including Cornyn, and emphatically but politely demand that the Senate not merely vote on H.R.38 as it stands now, but that it pass H.R.38. Chas. Sent to his website just ...

Re: H.R.38: National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

As always, Charles, thanks for keeping us up to date on the important legislation, and for helping clear the air when questions arise.

I hope the Senate acts on this quickly - it would be a MAJOR win for the 2A.

Re: Thumb break or not on OWB leather holster?

Vol Texan, Just wondering if you made a decision on a holster? If so...which one did you order? :txflag: Yes, I have decided on Randy Warren. I knew I didn't want to buy one off the shelf, because my handgun is a bit unique. I have a Colt 1991 model which had a SafetyFast shooting system installed ...
