They never saw a gun because there wasn't one.

I would be in prison for that.


:iagree: I don't understand how the jury came to their conclusion.

Re: Unlicensed Carry on Private Property

I always carry a handgun when I go fishing. Even before I got my CHL. Why? Cottonmouths! I killed on just a couple of weeks ago with my old S&W Model 28 .357.

I have been to the Arizona Memorial. It's a place unlike any other place I have ever been.

Re: San Antonio: LTC shoots robber outside restaurant

If the article is accurate, the LTC held his cool pretty well. He didn't draw at first, just refused to give the BG any money. He only drew when the BG pointed a gun at his children as they were hurrying out the door. Kudo's to this man for protecting his family.

I find it interesting that 20 people crossed their party on this subject. Maybe that foretells some party line crossing in the Senate too.

Re: Concealed Carry Reciprocity is on the Move: Your Lawmakers Need to Hear from You NOW!

I've been watching the debate live on the CSPAN web site. ALL of the democrats who have spoken have repeated the same theme. This bill puts more guns into the hands of violent criminals. This bill makes your family less safe. This bill puts guns in every corner of America. This bill will result in m...

Re: Concealed Carry Reciprocity is on the Move: Your Lawmakers Need to Hear from You NOW!

I know the merged bills are making many question. No one wants the Feds involved in state gun laws/regulations/rules. Come on, New Jersey rules in Texas? Heaven help us all. But, If I can go to my son's Navy base in New England and not have to disarm on the way...., that's a huge step forward in reg...

Re: I have been to my last gun show!

I haven't been to the Dallas Gun Show in a few years. It's about a two hour drive for me. The last time I went I was looking for a particular Colt 1911 that I could not find locally. I found it there, and at a really nice price and saved the shipping and FFL fee. I'm sad to hear that the show is goi...

Re: CC in banks

I CC in my bank and my credit union. When they ask me for ID to get cash, I always show them my CHL (still haven't renewed yet since the law change). I've seen a pause or two by some tellers, but never a question or even a raised eyebrow.
