Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Congress must approve foreign payments and gifts to federal employees per the emoluments clause. This is why Barack Obama was impeached when he accepted the Nobel peace prize along with it's accompanying cash payment from the government of Sweden. Oh wait, no that didn't happen. But didn't Obama do...

Re: Team Building Ideas

My group at work was asked what we wanted to do for a team building event, and we all said we want to go to a shooting range. Our company came back and said they won't sanction this, but we are gonna try and do it anyway, even if we have to pay out of pocket. That being said, does anyone know of a ...

TPN Austin Event 7-1.jpg To the OP, sorry for taking your post so far off topic. I thought the article I attached would be something you and your group would be interested in reading, as preserving the heritage of Texas is part of preserving the heritage of the entire country.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

The congress critters and FBI need to stop investigating the President for winning the election and start investigating the traitorous illegal leaking of classified information by members of the deep state who are attempting to force the legally elected president from office.

Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

The only way to pursue "constitutional carry" is with the bill I've already written for 2019. It 1) moves all of TPC §46.035 to §46.03 so as to apply it to unlicensed carry; 2) renders LTC exempt from not only TPC §46.02, but §46.03 as well; and 3) makes anyone who can lawfully possess fi...

Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

There are over one million LTC holders in Texas now. Is that a big enough group to pay a lobbyist? I don't know. Would a paid lobbyist even help our cause? I don't know. But I do know that even among pro 2A Texans, non LTC holders are not terribly concerned or terribly sympathetic to these issues. ...

Re: Why I like Ruger

I've owned a Ruger Mini-14 for about 25 years - it has never failed to fire when I pulled the trigger and never had any kind of feeding problem. It is also very accurate, although it is from the era when the barrels were not accurate after a bit of rapid firing. Although I decided to go the S&W ...

Re: WA: Convenience store owner gets 8 years for shooting fleeing perp

I worked at a 7-11 back in the mid-70's - part of the training drilled into us was that nothing in the store was worth loosing your life over. Give robbers whatever they wanted without any provocation.
