Re: Are Grill Covers Really Needed?

How much of your grill is stainless steel? Rust is a big thing to protect against. Also, I find that bird poop on the grill is rather unattractive and needs to be cleaned off regularly. That being said, I have never used a cover.

Re: Winning the Civil War of Two Americas

Fortunately this is a division of philosophy, not of hatred, the defense of America on this front best accomplished with illumination, not violence. Excepting those times when anarchists and criminals want to devolve your neighborhood into a Fergusonian utopia. Times like that, one has to fill one'...

Re: Palm swell grips for 1911

+1 on the Hogue wraparounds. They aren't exactly palmswell grips, but they are thicker and more cushiony than others and give great traction. Even with my small hands I like them.

Re: HB1911 Com Substitute

When is it ever wrong to fight for the Constitution? This is an elegant statement, but one does not generate change and progress with such global, lofty sloganeering, no matter how "right" it is. You have to deal with reality and the real world, and how it works, not how you think it shou...

Re: First Renewal Lessons

You got your license in 2014 and it is due to expire in 2017? In the best case, that is less than 4 years for your first license. That doesn't sound right.

Re: Change-Of-Address delays: DPS recommendation

Glad to see that they are working on things. To be fair, though, it ain't always easy to call DPS and get someone right away who can answer a question.

Re: HB1911 Com Substitute

To those who say that we should not have wasted time fighting for Constitutional carry, may I ask one simple question? When is it ever wrong to fight for the Constitution? And don't even give me your answer to that question. Go to a veteran's cemetery and tell them why it's silly to fight for the Co...

Re: Brother In Law Diagnosed With Cancer

Well, the doctors say that the cancer is the same kind he had the last time. They say that it should respond well to radiation, and they plan ten doses of radiation. Due to the size of the cancer, its location, and the fact that my BIL has a degree of COPD, they don't want him to be under general an...

I assume they got my name and email address from the DPS list of instructors. I wonder if other instructors here received the same email that I did?

Re: HB1911 Com Substitute

What seems to me to be the issue here is the philosophical view that the 2nd Amendment should not require a license. Practically speaking, the 2A says what the courts say it says, and the best we have now is the Licensing system which (again to me) seems a reasonable compromise that contributes to ...
