Re: Signs for the CHLer

Thank you for your replies that cleared up quite a bit of questions I had. However, it also spurred more. Can you clarify “gunbuster”? Also, can any business print out a copy of a 30.06 or 30.07 and post it in their window in the proper formatting, or does it have to come from the state? I’d rather...

lildave40 - sounds like you were thinking on your feet and handled the situation beautifully. I would like to point out something, not as an attack on what you did, but more as food for thought.

Re: Lonestar Armory Run and Gun (Biathlon)

You can use a backpack, I use a camelbak to carry spare ammo to refill mags, but it makes it tough to get a new mag to finish a stage. The Waco event were 180 sec max so time digging in a backpack makes it difficult to complete the stage. Check out the photos from the 1st Waco event or the other ph...

Re: Poll - How many rounds?

My wife has replaced her Ruger LCR .38 (5 and 5 round speed loader) with her new Walther PPS M2 LE as her every day carry. She carries 6+1 OWB strong side, concealed, with an 8 round mag on her support side.

Re: In your home with workmen present

The only time I don't carry my sidearm is when sleeping, or in the shower. I always wear jeans so I don't have the problem of where to put a holster. If there are workers on my property, I always OC. I want them to see that I am armed. My house sits back in the woods and you cannot see it from the ...

I've never been duck hunting. I thought you weren't supposed to shoot the wooden decoy ducks.

Re: In your home with workmen present

I don't carry 24/7 at home, as my attire, or lack thereof, will not always support the weight of my S&W M&P Mod 2.0, 9mm 5inch and 2 spare mags. Or SWMBO says not to. When I don't, my holstered pistol is within easy reach. When we have visitors of any kind, or we visit others, my pistol is v...

I carry openly in the Wells Fargo branches I use. I don't go into banks that post 30.06 or 30.07. Too easy to find a bank I like better.
