Re: Fed to seize guns from people who failed background checks

Gee, this seems so simple and so common. If you posses stolen property, whether you know it or not, you don't have rights of ownership. You might have a great case in civil court against whoever sold you the stolen property, but think government "confiscation" through just a little farther...

Re: Ever Shoot with No Ear Protection for Training?

I think it’s a bad idea to injure yourself in training. In a real fight I don’t think the noise of your gun will be a concern, and there is zero reason to experience the sound of a muzzle facing you.

Re: Another Meme Thread

I am undone. I searched online for Ru Paul. There's pictures.

Does anyone know how to apologize to Google?

Re: Bottom Handguns!

The forum topic reminds me of an ER photo I saw back in about 1980. S&W Model 39 and 59 crunchentickers were all the rage on the Austin PD. The photo was of a distinguished detective with a groove in his sit-down from what came before Glock perfection. At least he didn't appendix carry. Quoth ET...

Re: Unlicensed Carry on Private Property

Seems like two conclusions come from this.

We should not infringe the right to keep and bear without due process.

In the present flawed climate, an LTC is a handy thing.

And speaking of the present flawed and un-thawed climate, OWB under a coat, nice! :mrgreen:

Re: Another Meme Thread

https://i.imgur.com/brHGSMg.jpg I consider myself pretty adept at maintaining privacy even when hugged. The secret is keep your strong-side arm low (unless you cross draw, of course). Your amorous friend won't have an arm near your armament. Twice, though, over Thanksgiving I got surprised by hugge...

Re: Honolulu PD begins confiscation of registered guns...

It's interesting the political incorrectness of smoking tobacco and the permissive hipness of smoking weed. I lost my Dad to tobacco. He was addicted before WW2. After the war, it helped hold him together. I don't believe taking up tobacco once he sustained combat wear and tear would have helped. Th...

Re: Top handguns in your opinion?

Many Colt/Kimber fans consider the other to be a waste of money. I'm more in the camp that likes either, when they are well build and run. (which isn't always the case, with either) And I'm not a fan of the series 80 or the Schwartz safeties. I'm curious. I prefer drop safe guns. For that reason I ...

Re: Honolulu PD begins confiscation of registered guns...

Hawaii's gun confiscation is a trick question set in an artificial environment. There's no way to answer it without someone calling you a nazi. You either want to rob a poor doper of his weed, or you want to end a critically important Constitutional right. It's particularly hard for me. I clearly re...

If it's going to be like driver's licenses and automobile registration, it should be none of a snowflake state's business how many rounds I load in a magazine.

Re: State Trooper Killed Freestone County

It was my turn to cook tonight, so I hied me to The Farm House Restaurant ("one bite and you're hooked"), past Tractor Supply and Rusty's Boots, almost to the Wal Mart in Mexia. There were five DPS patrol vehicles in the parking lot. I went to the cashier to collect our tilapia and chicken...

Re: Concealed Carry Reciprocity is on the Move: Your Lawmakers Need to Hear from You NOW!

Bill Flores' office had no information on where he stands, other than he supports the 2nd Amendment.

Lovely.
