Re: Pictures of your "Black Guns"

How do you like the MCX, and how would you compare it to the Scorp (outside of the obvious caliber difference)? I've got the EVO 3 S1, and love it. I thought it would satiate my desire for a PCC SBR, but I still find myself eyeing the MCX / MPX. Love the MCX but there's no comparison w/ the Scorpio...

Re: Pictures of your "Black Guns"

Added a new member to my little SBR family. Pictured bottom, a Sig Sauer MCX 'Virtus' 11.5" in 5.56. Definitely a new favorite.

Re: Brandishing

Several missteps there we could argue.

Refresh yourself w/ LTC-16: https://www.dps.texas.gov/InternetForms ... LTC-16.pdf

PC §9.04. THREATS AS JUSTIFIABLE FORCE.

vs

PC §42.01. DISORDERLY CONDUCT. subsection A-8.

Re: Houston Skeetogether

I taught back to back LTC classes Friday and Saturday, I'm ready for a little R&R.

I'll see if I can get a buddy out to join us.

Re: Gun rights for a Felon?

Going back to felons and guns, there's an interesting carve out in Texas (and some other states I understand). After five years from discharge of the sentence, a felon can possess a firearm in their residence. Lot of issues, possess versus own, purchase, residence only, etc, but it's interesting.

Re: Shotgun selection

A mid-range semi-auto would fit the bill. Advantages are flexibility, recoil reduction, longer barrel, and ease of use. Downsides are more cleaning than a break open. Another thought to consider. There are sporting clay college scholarships.... if I only had I known. Might have made that G.I. Bill o...

Re: WTB Budget AR 15

If the price differential isn't huge and you don't love working on guns, I would encourage you to get one that is fully assembled. I have assembled close to 10 lowers, and I am not super handy, so it can be done. But on the first couple, there were several times that I was cursing myself for taking...

Re: Carry by Bar Employee

Giving a class the other day, and someone said they worked in a bar and asked if they could carry there once they got their license. Now in 46.15: (b) Section 46.02 (carry is prohibited in all places other than your premises, or car/boat under your control) does not apply to a person who: (7) holds...

Re: Red Dot sight question.

I like the MRO, but it's not a budget red dot.

For a budget red dot, I'll second Primary Arms and mention Holosun. That factory may or may not make red dots for other companies (under different design and QC regimes).

Re: Red Dot sight question.

The 4C is a good optic, but has been replaced by the Romeo 4S.

I put a 4S on my MCX Virtus and really like it. The solar backup is a plus.

After the cool front comes though but before Turkey day, to narrow things down, let's try to pin a Sunday that works.
