Re: Green/Red chamber

I carry a springfield XDS and a springfield XD MOD.2 4", I carry chambered, both have the grip safety which provided extra reassurance while carrying for the first few weeks vs say a Glock. I like the grip safety as it is not something that I have to remember to disengage under duress (as my gr...

Re: AR500 Steel versus an AR15

That's a democrat's preferred self-defense method because a 1 round magazine is too much.

Re: A True Accidental Shooting

That is very unfortunate, and this and many other reasons are why I only buy new from dealers.

Realtor/Land Agent for Williamson County?

I'm looking at a piece of land in Williamson County this week. Can anyone recommend a great agent to work with me someone who is familiar with land/minerals rights/deals? The realtor I have used in the past has never done deals involving minerals so I don't think I want him working for me on this de...

Re: Battle rifle???? Really?

When people on the Internet get bothered over terminology (clip/mag, battlerifle/ar/defense rifle) I assume them to be the grumpy old man running a gun store stereotype, and move on with my life. :cheers2:

Re: Central Texas College in Killeen has adopted two campus carry policies

Do they have the legal ability to require that? If so, that is crazy. If you're going to let someone carry a gun, let them carry it how they need/train to carry it.

Re: Do you wear gloves when cleaning your guns?

I use blue medical gloves that I was given and when they run out I'll use some cheap replacements. Plenty of lead and other toxins in our guns to be careful of especially with kids in the house etc.

Re: Gun was pointed at us. Should we feel safe ?

Here are the rules everybody is referring to; https://gunsafetyrules.nra.org/ In essence, the #1 rule is to never point a firearm at anything you're not prepared to destroy ("ALWAYS Keep The Gun Pointed In A Safe Direction"). If he's lax about the golden rule, then I wouldn't trust him to ...

Re: Austin members

IIRC Austin nabbed him from California which helps explain things IMO. Rather than shutting down unpermitted anti-trump protests after the election which blocked downtown streets for multiple days at rush hour, he walked with the crowds and had the police escort the protest etc. Him leaving isn't go...

Re: Workplace Violence Policy

We need to fix the law. Employers who make their employees sitting ducks with 30.06 should be held liable in a worst case scenario, and such employers should be required to have multiple armed security (we see in the video how 1 guard is useless).

30.06 means they don't deserve your money and you should go somewhere else anyway!
