Re: Invited into a neighbor's home. Can I carry?

:iagree: Some of these replies are sounding a little arrogant. If one is going in another's home as an invited guest on a social visit, not as, say a business service call, what gives one the right to carry without the homeowner's knowledge? Does their invite give one this right? This is not a busin...

Re: I just had a reality check

This Did not happen in real life but it happened in a dream. And while it was only a dream it put everything into perspective. If I was going to be in a self defense situation of not just me but my wife with say 3 attackers my 45 shield in my opinion wouldn't have enough rounds even though I carry ...

Re: Invited into a neighbor's home. Can I carry?

They have the right to refuse to allow carry in their home. If they expressed no such prohibitions, you are free to carry. They also have the right to ask you to leave at any time for any reason ( maybe they don't like your hairstyle) It will be your decision whether to CC or OC, but I would CC unt...

Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

Y'all have fun. I live 30 miles east of Austin. Too far to join you. Instead, I will take my two youngest sons shooting this morning and to a formal class this afternoon. Happy Father's Day eve!

Please note, this effect is ONLY documented when subjects are already in a state of agitation. It has not been found to apply when just having normal conversations or when not already otherwise in an agitated/angered state. Personally the reporter's opinions and interjections are completely irrelev...

Re: Interesting Psychology: Open Carry & The Weapons Effect

I open carry, I will continue to open carry unless a .07 sign is present at which point I'll cover up until my business with that business is concluded. My personal experience I have found that few people even notice, and most don't care, I have had a couple of conversations with complete strangers...

Re: Fender bender

I had a similar interaction with a SAPD officer recently. I was in a two-car accident and called 911. I gave the officer my ID and CHL and told him I was armed. His response was a shrug and he said "As long as I don't see it (my pistol), we're good". They seem to be training them well in ...

I carried an M1911A1 (7 + 1) on active duty. Now I enjoy my M&P (17 + 1). Capacity helps me stay in the fight.

Re: TV Fact or Fiction

That is right up there with the movie "wanted" where they curve a bullet in flight, just too silly to be watchable! Didn't DARPA develop a bullet that can change direction in Flight? I thought it was called something like EXACT or EXACTO. While I do not like movie magic, I thought the DAR...
