Re: Grandson in from Basic

There's no good time for a broken leg, but would be especially frustrating in the middle of basic training. I imagine he will have to pick it up again with a whole different group of trainees. best wishes to him.

At least you had a great time at the range. Well done.

Re: 30.06 Ruling Letters

Further summarizing, for my own benefit if no one else's: The AG complained that the 1. Gunbuster sign and the 2. oral warnings by security officers at the main entrance(s) of City Hall violated the provisions of "fines for signs" law because they prevented LTC holders from carrying in the...

Re: 30.06 Ruling Letters

I may be wrong, but... I thought I had heard from one of the Texas Firearms Coalition podcasts that the off limits for school functions only applies to grounds under the school’s control. Otherwise, if you are eating in a restaurant, and a school bus full of kids on a field trip stop in, you are in...

Re: 30.06 Ruling Letters

BTW, in the part where the judge wonders if an oral notice might require reference to 30.06 she is referencing the dissent by a Justice Gray on the 10th Court of Appeals in a case discussed in this thread (but not in the initial post, you have to scroll down): http://www.texaschlforum.com/viewtopic....

Re: 30.06 Ruling Letters

... Why can't the OAG put out the blanket policy/law/explanation that the municipalities have to follow the state capital policies? This would be similar to the gun laws that would prevent an individual city from banning a firearm that is not banned by the state. The AG is not supposed to make law,...

Re: 30.06 Ruling Letters

While not a slam dunk win for the city, it is quite obvious the judge is trying to limit when and where license holders may carry. I do not get this at all from her opinion, especially when she limits the times when LTC carry is prohibited to only when the court is in session. That's not trying to ...

Re: Interesting Non Car Buying Experience

... If you want a killer price, one thing you can do is finance it through manufacturer financing even if you have the dough to pay cash. Once the loan goes through, just pay it off, and you'll be out the first month's interest plus a hard credit check on your record. It'll be more than offset by t...

Re: Interesting Non Car Buying Experience

The only time I actually enjoyed buying a car was in Los Angeles. I needed a vehicle right now, but I needed it only for about six months since I was going overseas on a one year remote tour where I wouldn't need to take a car. I spotted a nice looking Chevy S-10 on a used car dealer lot, went to ch...
