Re: Houston Skeetogether

7.5 has more travel. Civilization has been encroaching and they want to avoid issues.

Re: Houston Skeetogether

I can do Sundays.

#8 and #9 shot, or in between, but no 7.5 and they do want to check as you're paying.

Re: Sig P226

I will be listing a number of guns that I don't use often to fund some upgrades to my firearm collection. Up for sale is a Sig Sauer P226. Standard model with the rail. I bought this gun used and have installed Sig's Short Reset Trigger, which is a must do upgrade, IMHO. Approximately 450 rounds fi...

Re: Houston Skeetogether

They do have lights on the fields. If an evening time would work that might open up some days of the week for folks other than a weekend. The lights might be blacked out by the swarms of mosquitoes. Just sayin.... Flame thrower or DDT fogger should do the trick. Shot week before last in Conroe and ...

Re: SIG rifle recall

It's how a company deals with it that makes or breaks them.

Acknowledge it. Fix it. Learn from it.

Re: Memorial Shooting Range Closes

No kidding? That location has been, what, three different ranges that I can think of? This latest iteration seemed to have it figured out.

Granted, it was in a location where you were thankful to have a firearm.

If you can't work something else out, let me know. I'm flexible on availability.

That's the spirit. It'll come back quick.

Maybe a few more shooters will pop up once they get dried out.

Re: Instructor proficiency in Houston

I'm running a single student thru the shoot test on Thursday 9/14 at Shiloh Shooting Range at 1:15 PM. If you can be up there then I'll run through it.

Houston Skeetogether

Okay, I'm jealous of the Dallas folks. We need to get the Houston contingent together for some skeet (or trap). Preferably not on a Saturday morning when I'm teaching an LTC or handgun class, but I'd be willing to skip one to shoot. On the NW side, Hotwells actually has some nice skeet fields, but n...

Re: Shipping a firearm door to door in TX

The restrictions on shipping apply to out of state (thus the federal involvement). Within the state, intrastate, you're good. Provided that you know that they are not prohibited by law from owning a firearm. Generally, it's cost prohibitive, see below. Note that you cannot use USPS to ship a handgun...

Re: Do NOT play in the flood waters - Harvey

We need the national command authority to approve a tactical nuke strike on that location. I believe it is justified.

I'll give credit to the Rasberry 'Crazy Ants'. They chased all the fire ants off of my place. Course they present their own problems, but they're not fire ants.
