There are plenty of Texas cannons, crewed by Texas gunners, on the web.


So feel free to put one up.

Re: Peruta En Banc Opinion - Concealed Carry Lost

There's no possibility this could get in front of the court while still tied 4-4? I haven't been paying close attention long enough to really know how long it takes to go from this point, to accepted by the SCOTUS, to argued, to ruled... The SCOTUS is not noted for speed on most issues, and to my k...

Re: Guns + Roommates using Marijuana

If this is the kind of apartment complex I think it is, he may not have had any say in the room mates. You lease the room from the complex; each apartment has multiple bedrooms in an apartment and a shared common space; the complex just puts people in the rooms randomly uless you ask for your room ...

Re: Guns + Roommates using Marijuana

I already said that leaving my apartment is not an option at this time. What is everyone's thoughts on locking my gun in my car when I am not carrying? Not having a gun with you if you get busted will be better than having it with you if you are busted, but if you are busted you are still in seriou...

Re: Guns + Roommates using Marijuana

LTC/Gun or not, you are living in a high-risk situation. I understand the intensity of maintaining focus on school and the disruption moving would cause, but it is the only safe option. I'm not a cop, but I doubt the Austin police go out of their way to ferret out people smoking pot in their apartme...

Re: Where do you wear your IWB and why?

Appendix carry. Very comfortable with the right holster. Also I have more control and it's the most concealed position. With my job I do a lot of bending over and reaching and my shirt never exposes my Glock 19. May I ask if you have a beer gut? I dont think I could carry a Glock 19 there. I don't ...

Re: Where do you wear your IWB and why?

Appendix carry (so I guess 1:00?). Most concealable, least dramatic draw, accessible to both hands from pretty much any position or situation.

Re: Courthouse carry legal?

I'm guessing this was not in Waller County... More to the point: The law on where one can and can't carry with respect to government buildings has not changed in a long time - 10 years maybe? But there was no penalty if a state or local government ignored the law and forbade licensed carry on its pr...
