Re: Convince me that constitutional carry is a good thing

Protecting oneself is a God given right, the 2A just guarantees that right. I don't live in Texas any longer since the oilfield bust so I turned my love for firearms into a nice hobby. I teach basic firearms safety and NRA Basic firearms courses, Concealed Carry and volunteer with kids in 4H shootin...

Re: Ban Cops from Glocks

And friend of mine used to work for Dallas PD and he said when he was there 1911's were banned because two officers he knew at Dallas were in a gun fight and both got killed because their 1911's jammed. I' don't remember if it was two separate gun fights or the same one but nevertheless ,That's why...

Re: Ban Cops from Glocks

Hate articles like this that mix issues. My thought are training/practice. I practice about 3 times a month and try to do some type of training once per month. Wonder how many LEOs have that opportunity. As far as the article personally I think trigger pull weight and break weight have a greater imp...

Re: When Bad Holsters Turn Worse

I'm going to play the devil's advocate. Looking at the holster I feel like there are some parts of the puzzle are missing. I appears to be a left handed IWB, he was wearing it at approx. 6 o'clock so he's either a contortionist or he's right handed. I'm trying to figure out the wadded up t-shirt par...

Re: 2 Navy Boats in Iranian Custody

Just my personal observation. This stinks to high heaven. As much as I hate to be a conspiracy theorist something is not right about this whole story. It hurt my heart and made me angry at the same time to see our sailors on their knees being submissive to these .... When I was in the Navy we had st...

Re: Obama on CNN tonight

Unfortunately I have have gotten to the point that he absolutely disgust me. His picture just shows up on my TV I change the channel. Every word that comes out of his mouth is a lie and self serving. Thanks goodness I have the internet so I can apply my bull filter to the news.

Seems to me you could ask for it at the check out just like they card to see if you of age. No LTC no beer simple as that.

Re: I now regret that OC passed

Let me start by saying I believe protecting myself is a God given right, the founders of our country created a document to protect that right. I do not regret that OC passed, however (my opinion) OCT created an atmosphere that made the people of Texas look like a bunch of lunatics running around wit...

Re: walmart asking for chl

Swoops1, By all means, act belligerent if an LTC is 'requested' at a business that has every right as it their business. When you're shown the door, you'll have shown em how the cow ate the cabbage by gosh, ah, unless you went in there to buy cabbage, that is... Telling them it's none of their busi...

Re: walmart asking for chl

Swoops1 Walmart is one of the friendliest 2A stores. I don't get it. They allow you to come in there armed, OC or CC. You have the right to not go in, but if you do, please do us all a favor and be polite when or if you're asked for CHL/LTC. Treat others as you'd like to be treated. Wouldn't like i...

Re: walmart asking for chl

Another reason not to shop at Wal-Mart. If I did shop there, which I haven't done in about 3 years and they ask I would tell them non of their business. They could always ask me to leave which I would. On the other hand if I decided to purchase said beverage they can always ask for ID to confirm my...

Signs, signs everywhere signs

Just unfollowed a certain OC Advocacy group on FB.I think had I seen one more post about signs I was going to loose my mind. They talk about the size the color, to letter size, contrasting backgrounds, it was in english not in Spanish. I realize the sign is important but, evidently you saw it, which...

Re: Just an observation here

To me it's really simple, you don't like the rules don't go there. There are plenty of other places to shop. If it's a place I really like they post an .07 sign, I'll cover up, if for some reason they decide to do a .06 sign and I really like the establishment I'll talk to the management say look he...
