Re: $11 million 'boutique' range - Missouri City

I honestly prefer outdoor ranges most of the time. Frisco Gun Club is alright, but I'd rather shoot where there's more room, less people, and no wait. Need a good range in Grayson or Cook county. Denton county has Magnum which I liked quite a bit. NTSA is great, but private...with a multi year wait ...

Re: Anyone know where Hornady presses are made?

Thanks! I'm going to go check one out at Cabelas tomorrow (hoping they have it set up). It's currently on sale for $389. It's either that or $599 for the 650XL from Dillon. $389 for the AP? Wow. Keep me away. Last time I was at Cabela's Allen, they had the single setup but I didn't see the AP. Good...

Re: Interesting events at Boerne Walmart

Methinks it's a policy--perhaps in effect for quite a while--but not a law: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/15335329/ns/technology_and_science-wireless/t/wal-mart-limits-prepaid-cell-phones/ . But I gotta say that after having constructed a Google search string for it, before I pressed "Search"...

Re: White House NFA Petition

Just saw 234,845 signed. Thats good, but the petition for the Hughes amendment to be repealed still needs 32,000 signatures to get to 100,000.

Re: Case Gauge .223?

I have a Lyman for my .223 rounds, check every one. I need one for 9mm, but for now I check those in the chamber of a removed barrel.

****REMOVED**** the barrel from the pistol to check it....

Compromise to get moderate democrats on board and keep moderate republicans on board. That's the only reason that provision is on it, if you ask me.

Re: Hearing Protection Act of 2017

I was at SHOT Show. The consensus of suppressor manufacturers that I talked to was that the shelves would be empty the day the bill is signed and prices would skyrocket. Eventually the price would stabilize, hopefully much lower with others entering the market, as supply caught up with demand. This...

Re: HB560 and HB1911 in Same Session

I fully support HB 1911. HB Glock, not so much. Let's hope the legislature does not wander into the Glock vs 1911 debate. They will definitely get nothing done if that happens. I am hedging my bets by owning both Glocks and 1911s. I would pay to watch that debate in the Senate or House, by current,...
