Re: Hunting Vehicles Targeted by Thieves

These stories are always out there. Seriously though people just aren't vigilant enough. My truck is setup for hunting, and fishing. I have tons of gear inside, but none of it is visible. Everything is inside the truck cap and all the windows to the cap are covered with blackout fabric and secured w...

Re: I have an LTC but was Denied Purchase by FBI

I thought it was up to the FFL if they wanted to do run a NICS check on an LTC holder?

Re: Red Dot VS. Scope - choice for AR-15

I've never been a fan of scopes on ARs unless of course it is a DMR/Long range setup. Of course in that I'd be on an AR10 platform, not AR15. I have a Vortex Spitfire 3x on one, used to have an EOtech on one, and an ACOG with an RMR on top. For the money I'm very pleased with the Spitfire. Good for ...

Re: Trump Rally in Austin - 8/23/16

My family & I had the pleasure of attending the rally for Donald Trump in Austin on 8/23, and it was a great experience. The energy was strong - people were out in droves and nearly filled the entire arena, except for some of the floor space, which I believe was reserved to allow security perso...

Re: If a pro gun candidate makes office....

I say Trump regardless. Maybe he is not the most pro gun guy but he isn't Hillary so that's enough for me. This. I don't care how bad you hate trump, Hillary is straight un-american. Nothing about her is anything I would want representing my voice, much less potus. How can you honestly be a hillary...

Re: Nevada FINALLY recognizing Texas LTC

Usually Vegas is not reciprocal. Nevada itself is but out of state is not honored in Vegas metro. At least Utah wasn't years back Vegas has recently received a "DiNozzo Slap" to the back of their "Head" and been informed by the state that they can't "create any laws about f...

Re: Texas Capitol - State Trooper Contact

Checkpoints were pretty common 30-40 years ago when I was growing up in Odessa. They loved to set them up near the high schools on school days and weekends nights around town. I got to the point I would make a turn or head the other way when I saw them and the line of cars waiting to get through. O...

Re: Carrying on Campus

If you feel your blood boiling towards a tipping point, politely raise your hand and ask about the nearest "safe area." You can go there to recover. That's amusing to contemplate. Maybe if conservatives started asking for safe places, this particular silliness would diminish. No then they...

Re: I love a happy ending!

"Guster, a legal concealed carry permit holder, took cover behind his SUV, loaded his gun and returned fire on the two" He was carrying his gun unloaded? Is this a law in WI? Remember you're reading what a "journalist" thinks happened, not what may have *actually* happened. Many...

Re: Base Exchange to be Opened to Vets

It will never beat Amazon. However, AAFES will price match with anybody, which often times lets you take advantage of the no tax, cheap shipping (for large items) and cheap service plans that work really well. I bought our fridge through them. AAFES listed it at $1900. Price matched it down to $130...

But then the DA can't save you money by accepting a plea. Makes their job substantially easier. All they have e to do is shuffle some paper then.

All states should have mandatory minimum sentences.

Re: Three professors sue UT to keep guns out of their classrooms

Federal judges quickly toss frivolous cases these days. I expect that will happen in this case. A good judge will dismiss it and impose sanctions on the attorney and the clients. Chas. Do you have any sense from this as to why there wasn't an outright dismissal? It seemed to me as a non-lawyer that...
