Re: TX: 70 year old Houston man murdered in HEB parking lot

A lot here that doesn't meet the eye. "Followed him into the parking lot ...". Maybe they followed him from a previous ATM withdrawal, or perhaps he knew them and it was a deal gone bad. Lot of details still missing.

But ... situational awareness.

Re: Brass Cleaning

I use a Dillon CV-2001 with crushed walnut hulls. I typically use the cheapest car polish I can find, but I recently tried Turtle Wax Polishing Compound . I was very surprised how well it works because I had previously tried one of Mequiar's polishing compound and it didn't work at all. Over time, ...

Re: School teacher with LTC

What would the law be if you are an independent contractor working and parking on an owners right of way ( there is no parking lot) and they verbally tell you that no firearms are allowed on their property. In my IANAL opinion, the firearm is not on their property, it is in your property. No one ca...

Re: Gun Buster Signs

... Only in Texas (as far as I know) do we have such specific rules on what constitutes notice and how it must be posted with minimum size requirements and specific wording. If it is because you are carrying a gun, you do not need to worry about the vagueness of 30.05. And you do not need to worry ...

Re: School teacher with LTC

The big difference to understand is that anybody can vehicle carry under MPA and the employer parking lot law. Only LTCs can keep firearms in vehicles on school parking lots.

Re: School teacher with LTC

And to clarify, it is not MPA that allows handguns in vehicles on private employer lots. In 2011, SB 321 added Sections 52.061 through 52.064 of Subchapter G to Chapter 52 of the Texas Labor Code. This is the one did not include school parking lots.

Re: Thought to Ponder with a Few Idle Minutes

My understanding of accuracy in a gas operated semi automatic rifle is that the gas sidelined for the SA operation is taken away from the gas used to propel the bullet and that amount is not always the same/controllable. Whereas in a bolt action, all of the gas is used to propel the bullet, and the ...

Re: Pulled over for speeding - you won't believe what happened next!

I also have an LTC, was carrying, and am a vet, and yet my most recent encounter with a DPS trooper was extremely unpleasant (without going into further details to avoid violating forum decorum).

Re: MI:Former Marine charged with assault with attempt to murder after defending his family

Another report I saw on a different forum said the guy was "fleeing" when he was shot. If true, the shooter did not have justification.

Re: Target shooting on public land

Beaches in Texas are considered State owned public land. I think if you are in an unincorporated area, and are far enough away from buildings and roads, It should be legal to shoot there, I haven't worked up the courage myself to try it out though. I think this would be OK, especially along Follett...

I hope this doesn't cause HEB to change their policy, they are currently just 30.07.

Re: IL: Hoosier with LTCH kills robber in Chicago

A couple of clarifications: 1. You do not have to take the class _in_ Illinois. You just have to take the class from a licensed IL instructor. I took mine in Plano. 2. IL allows any visitor with a license to CC in their home state to conceal carry in their vehicle, and to "transport", i.e....

Re: Police Negligent Discharge Study - Results Not What You Might Think

We had an ND by a Deputy at the County Jail, becasue he had disarmed by removing his pistol from the holster (instead of removing the holstered pistol). When replacing his pistol, he had his keys in his hand, and one of them caught on the trigger. Sounds like McLennan County - there was an incident...
