Re: SCR 8: The official gun of the State of Texas will be...

If you want to post a picture of a cannon representing the "official state gun of Texas", please don't use a WWII era Soviet anti-tank gun. There are plenty of Texas cannons, crewed by Texas gunners, on the web. So feel free to put one up. See my previous post that had a link to a video s...

Re: SB 288 - Motorcycle "lane splitting" bill

I hope this bill passes. A few weeks back, I started watching every motorcycle "how to" video I could find. Lane-splitting, counter-steering and braking are popular videos. I see the advantage of lane-splitting for bikers and motorists. BTW, my quest to return to riding after decades away...

Re: Alternatives to 30.06

Hi everyone! Just passed my LTC course and submitted all the paperwork. One point the instructor made during the course is that 30.06 prohibits CC of handguns, but not of other legal defensive weapons like tasers, knives, pepper spray, etc. I have no interest in violating the law, and sometimes I w...

Re: Do you wear gloves when cleaning your guns?

I use nitrile gloves when working with epoxy for building hobby rockets. Over exposure to epoxy can cause an allergy type reaction. I use those same gloves when cleaning my pistol, primarily to make washing my hands easier. I cannot count the number of weapons I cleaned during 34 years in uniform: M...

Re: Do you refuse to do business with 30.06 & 30.07 businesses?

Do you give them your money or refuse to do any business with them? No, conditionally. With the exception of hospitals and similar venues, I have found it easy enough to avoid 30.06 and/or 30.07 posted locations. For example, since HEB has posted 30.07, I find myself choosing to shop at Walmart unl...

Re: XLN

I am new to the Tyler area and am wondering if I could carry concealed at XL'N, which is apparently a pool hall with an outdoor area as well. I tried looking them up on the TABC website, but came up empty. To see if someone has added the business to the Texas3006.com database, go to https://www.tex...

Re: Once again Yankee marshal strikes

I am a 9mm guy, I believe that platform is more important than caliber and that platform often determines caliber. We should all carry what and shoot with what we are most comfortable with and what we can shot well with. We also need to keep in mind that every gun and ammo choice is an engineering ...
