Cotton re-elected to NRA Board

Now I can officially announce that I was re-elected to the NRA Board of Directors. I've known for a while now, but we are asked not to publicize it until after the annual meeting of the members.

Thanks to everyone who voted for me and supported my re-election!

Re: NRA Disinvites US Concealed Carry Association

I'm going to make this general statement, then I'm not going to try to respond further. As I noted in my last post, Directors cannot make statements on behalf of the NRA. That must be done by officers. That's true of every corporation. The role of Directors is to serve in an oversight capacity and w...

Re: NRA Disinvites US Concealed Carry Association

So NRA could short circuit the misinfo by stating what the problem is. .....We don't have time to play social media games. Plus, we don't respond to every false statement made about the NRA on the Internet, whether it comes from the Bloomberg crowd, or allegedly pro-gun persons/groups each with the...

Re: NRA Disinvites US Concealed Carry Association

Two competitors to their new program have been dropped from the event. That's not false. "Optics" (and I hate that word in this use) are what they are, the airline industry has learned that hard the last month. The NRA should face it and answer to them, or deal with the fact that they loo...

Re: HB1911 Com Substitute

My (likely unpopular) opinion is I wish the emphasis on unlicensed carry would just go away. The distraction caused by 'constitutional carry' this cycle and Open Carry last cycle haven't help much with the notion of lawful carry in increasingly more places. With the reduction in LTC fees (assuming ...

Re: HB1911 Com Substitute

Committee substitute text for HB1911 released today. I notice: looks like a gunbuster bars unlicensed carry, and carry past that is a class C. Doesn't mention anything about sign requirements, hence I think this. belt or shoulder holster changed to just "holster" CSHB 1911 Final.pdf Edite...

Re: Show your DIY Ideas and Projects

UPDATE: I've been using the endoscope as a powder-checker for three months now and it is great! It's so easy to see the powder charge from any angle. No longer do I have to be in essentially the same position to be able to see into the case. As I mentioned earlier, I can sit down and reload, or simp...

Re: NRA Disinvites US Concealed Carry Association

I know nothing about this, therefore I don't know 1) if it's true; and 2) if so, what was the reasoning behind the decision. I can say that the so-called "self-defense" insurance sold through Lockton is a tiny portion of the NRA's revenue, so money is not an issue. I found the USCCA statem...

Re: Year End Instructor Recertification?

Charles, any chance of getting them to let instructors certify the range portion for each other? The DPS range is fun to shoot on, but it would be really convenient to end earlier for those (probably most) who have to travel afterwards. That is what they did four years ago when the renewal class wa...

Re: HB1911: Rep. White's Press Release

I have not seen the committee substitute that was ultimately voted out of committee. It was changed after the version I worked on was in final form. I'm not attacking anyone for that, as I'm sure there were reasons for the changes. It is my belief that there were significant amendments, so I will be...

Re: HB1911: Rep. White's Press Release

Did the bill pass committee? Will the speaker allow the House to vote in it? Is there any reason to expect problems in the Senate? Reported favorably as substituted 04/18/2017 Passed committee yesterday. Someone more on the inside will need to address the rest of your questions. I'll add that it mu...
