Re: Cracker Barrel bans guns?

I've conceal carried in Cracker Barrels on several occasions. Other than having to mind your sitting position (they have the old straight back chairs with the slats that can sometimes hook the grip of your pistol), I've never had any problems nor seen any signs. The food is ok. East and south of Hou...

Re: HB421 Reported Favorably as Substituted

So, when it says that you cannot give the appearance of a "personal protection officer", don't most body guards wear dark colored suits with ties? Because, guess what I wear to church each Sunday... I think that in this case it could be said that the PPO is trying to give the appearance o...

Re: Time for a Shield!

I don't need one but at that price I may buy one to show ladies in my classes. I'm quite fond of my Shield, but just be aware that its strong recoil spring may not be received well by inexperienced female shooters, given the common difficulty with slide racking. At first the spring is pretty stiff....

I'm thinking that the with the price drops & rebates, the Shield will be upgraded soon. Akin to the M&P 2.0.

I've used their 9mm in my M&P Shield for a while now with no problem.

Re: Houston south quadrant breakfast

South Quadrant Breakfast team... It looks like we're finally going to be able to pull off a West Quadrant version of our monthly meet-up. I know it's a bit of a haul for some of you, but it would be good if some of y'all could join us on the west side for our inaugural breakfast. We'll be at Rudy's...

Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

If unlicensed carry passes this session & HB560 languishes. Don't count on any 560-like bill passing in the near future. The whole argument for 560 is that licensed carriers have earned the reduction of off limits places.

Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

Very frustrating that no other members have the guts to stand up for something that's the right thing to do. HB 560 needs to start showing signs of life. The House needs to wake up before the bill can get moving. As best as I can tell, the House hasn't done anything except re-elect the Speaker in t...

Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

It looks like no committee assignments have been made. Specifically no one has been assigned to the public safety committee (through which all gun bills must pass). You mean the committee ITSELF doesn't have any members yet? How serious is that at this point? Who is the key backer of this bill in t...

Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

Well so far, nothing is happening with this great bill. No one has signed on as a co-author or as a sponsor and it hasn't even been assigned to committee yet. I'm guessing that the legislature is taking a break from gun bills this session. Have the committee's chairs been assigned in the house? Saw...

Re: LTC individual has ND at Houston Galleria

How many makes of modern firearms will discharge from an impact without the trigger being pulled? It's possible that the trigger may have been inadvertently pulled by something else in the backpack when it fell. From the Ch2 article: Police said the man did have a permit to carry, but his weapon wa...

Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

So that things don't get lost in the shuffle, I decided to wait until the new legislature convenes before sending out my emails requesting support for HB560. I fired off emails this morning to my legislators: Rep Mary Ann Perez (probably wishful thinking that she'll support the bill in any form) &am...
