Re: Convince me that constitutional carry is a good thing

...the 30.06 sign postings have continued to increase ... That's another thing that worries me. A senator's assistant told me last year that if we were so concerned about the explosion in 06 signs after the last session, we should have left well enough alone. Before the last session, 06 signs were ...

Re: Legal Requirements for Manual Safety

I always use the thumb safety on my 1911s, but there is no legal requirement to use an available safety. The only time I could see this being an issue is when one claims they didn't intend to shoot. In fact, saying "oops, I didn't mean to shoot" is a way to turn a righteous self-defense sh...

Re: Convince me that constitutional carry is a good thing

Those fretting that one bill might "win" over the other....so what? EITHER one is a good start, IMO. Not hardly! HB375 would amend TPC §30.06 such that it applies to both licensed and unlicensed concealed-carry. That would be a disaster as it would strip property owners of the ability to ...

Re: What is CSHB 1911?

CSHB refers to a Committee Substitute. It is a replacement version of the bill accepted by the committee that held hearings on the bill that changes the wording from the initially filed version to something else. Correct. Also, a committee substitute bill is tendered during a committee meeting, as ...

Another Mechanical Engineering Question re: free-stand antenna mast

Quite some time back I asked a question about a trolley system for an antenna mast. I have another question about a free-standing antenna mast, but rather than mix apples and oranges, I'm starting this thread. I'm putting up a repeater at a location other than my house and I want to use a free-stand...

Re: Year End Instructor Recertification?

If I am correct, a lot of us will see our certificates expire at the end of the year. I know that it's only March, and most people are more concerned with what's going on in the Legislature right now, but I thought I would ask anyway. Any early news of what will be required for recert at end of yea...

Re: Understanding Blunt Force Trauma Lethality

This is a very good article; thanks for posting it. I have been aware of the topic and information, but it is the forensic aspect of it that is so valuable. Prior knowledge of the danger is a critical element of one's claim of self-defense. One can only be reasonable in fear for their life if they k...
