Re: PA: Philly wants "Freedom to rob". Bill to ban bulletproof glass passes committee

I worked on a government facility (not saying who or where) it had shooting ports through the bullet resistive wall. In another one the solid walls below the plexiglass had what was called ballistic fibreglass panels behind the Sheetrock. It was a really cool material, had never seen it before. I h...

Re: Ever Shoot with No Ear Protection for Training?

:iagree:

Re: AZ: Police release graphic video of officer involved shooting of Texas man

I would encourage everyone who has commented to re-visit the link provided by the OP. The original video on the (activist) reporter's Twitter feed that was embedded into the Newsweek article is now showing almost 6 minutes of body cam footage. The original video (at least when I watched it on my pho...

Re: Chronic Problems

I'm thinking FTF/FTE's are an unfortunate side effect of a sub-cal device. Looking at some of the 5-star reviews online, even those who were thrilled with the same conversion kit you have reported a few FTF or FTE when using the recommended ammo (however, it wasn't every magazine like you are experi...

7 Dec private lesson available (Wimberly/Dripping Springs area)

Ladies & Gents, I had a client cancel their private Couples class due to a last minute work conflict. I already have the classroom and private range set for tomorrow (7 Dec 2017), so if anyone has been looking for a one-on-one or Couples session to work on fundamentals, drawing from the holster,...

Re: Tool box for an 11 year old.

I'd suggest a small level, so he can help with hanging picture frames & such. If you have plans to build any structures or a fence in the near future a line level would be good as well. Maybe even a small combo square.

Re: Taking CHL class in Michigan

:iagree: Both of the above comments are spot on. To more clearly answer your question, there is no such thing as 'transfering' an out of state License to Carry (LTC/CHL/CCP/or whatever name the issuing state calls it). If Texas accepts the issuing state's LTC under reciprocity, then you can legally ...

For the LTC Proficiency: "All courses of fire will be scored on a standard B-27 target. The B-27 target must be 24 inches by 45 inches and may be one of four colors; black, blue, red, or green." This is from the Admin Code, here: http://texreg.sos.state.tx.us/public/readtac$ext.TacPage?sl=...
