Re: Ham roll call?

I think I remember N5EOC in the logs from previous Field Days. We will be operating as KB5MAR in Marshall.

Re: Walked out of Academy Last Night

I don't mind having to show an ID to purchase ammunition - even though it is obvious that I am of legal age. But instead of asking for my ID, the clerk asked for my birth date to to put into her terminal before she could make the sales transaction. If they don't ask for an ID, I'd just make up a da...

Re: Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX 36) thinks he's better than you

Judging by the twitter response to his post announcing this, there are others who aren't thrilled with this proposal.

Re: Can civilians carry handcuffs?

How in the Wide World of Sports did you find this 10 year old thread and then decide to reply to it? I've noticed this phenomenon on many forums... New guy joins and posts to an old, dead thread. I've always wondered why... Keep in mind that, for the 'new guy', even the old threads are new threads....

You can always order online, and have it shipped to a local FFL. I'm tempted to do just that.

Re: Renewal

At some point around the 6 month mark before your current license expires, you should receive notice from DPS that it's time to renew.

Re: Erosion of Nevada Castle Doctrine

I just spent a good 10 minutes trying to determine if this is legitimate. Regardless, it's a very poorly written article. It would have a little more credibility if they'd mention which specific bill they are writing about.

Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

They'll get to what the leadership wants, nothing more, nothing less. Exactly right. But they put the leadership in place. Where I currently live, I do not have a choice in my vote as I am trying to get democrats out of office. But we all need to review our reps voting record and bill support when ...

Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

HB560 would have certainly been my first pick to pass. Since it won't, let's do what we can to pass HB1911. If it passes, and there is no blood in the streets over the next 2 years, surely there can't be any argument against removing some restricted places, right?

Right?

Re: Bearding

I let mine grow for a few months, and then my wife tells me she misses my face. That's her secret code for, "I hate that thing. Shave it off."
