Re: Laptop display problem

Everything is working fine now. I was able to use the hard drive as an external drive to copy the pst file to the new computer. I then imported it into the active profile on the new laptop. This way I got everything back without losing the few hundred emails I received on the new laptop. I then put ...

Re: Church Security Team help!!

Security, especially in a volunteer setting, is a team effort. The guy in charge sounds more like a dictator than a team leader. A dictator whose ego won't allow himself admit to any faults is dangerous. I would quietly back away from this guy. sometimes poor misinformed security is worse than no o...

Re: Benbrook PD Called for Gun Tshirt in Park

I don't know where you live, but around here a T-shirt is far more common attire than a suit at parks. It's not a matter of T-shirt v. suit, it's the provocative nature of some shirts. I wear a lot of T-shirts that have NRA or other gun/shooting related printing and I've never had anyone say a word...

Re: Front Sight Focus---Or Not...

This is an excellent and often not fully understood subject. I teach all of my basic and intermediate students to focus on the front sight. Whether they need a flash sight alignment/sight picture or near-perfect alignment depends upon distance and aspects of the target. (Ex. dreaded hostage shot v. ...

Could someone please describe the inside of Mr. Warren's hoslters? Is it smooth like you can get on a Tucker holster or is it rough out? Also, how is the fit on a new holster as it relates to retention? Extra points for a picture looking down into the holster... : ) Thanks! The inside of all of my ...

Re: Calaveras and Braunig Lakes

If my understanding of the 30.06 signs is correct, the prohibits you from entering a build or portion of a building, so as long as you don't enter any buildings it should be legal to carry. Wrong, 30.06 and 30.07 use the term property, not premises. Also, the narrow definition of "premises&quo...

Re: FFL Transfer fees The Arms Room

Before Clinton, I ran a home based FFL. I know the cost of doing a 4473. Charging more than $20 for a transfer is unreasonable, especially for a CHL. Gulf coast arms Friendswood is very reasonable. I had an FFL that I let lapse during the Clinton fiasco. When the BATFE decided to require dealers to...

Re: Laptop display problem

It might work on Windows 7. Just boot up the laptop with the external monitor connected. Give it enough time to full boot, then hit Windows + P. There are multiple options Extend, Duplicate, External only. So hit the P, 1/2/3 times and see if anything happens. FYI, if you use Outlook for your email...
