Re: SB 288 - Motorcycle "lane splitting" bill

I hope this bill passes. A few weeks back, I started watching every motorcycle "how to" video I could find. Lane-splitting, counter-steering and braking are popular videos. I see the advantage of lane-splitting for bikers and motorists. BTW, my quest to return to riding after decades away ...

Re: Do you wear gloves when cleaning your guns?

What non-toxic solvents are you guys using I've used Ed's Red for years. If there's a non-toxic solvent that doesn't stink up the house, I can clean guns in my reloading room instead of the garage. :thumbs2:

Charlton Heston's "A Torch With No Flame"

I've posted this before, but it is as timely now as when Charlton Heston first uttered these words. Unfortunately, while support for gun rights is increasing, the battle will never end. I also found it most unsettling that the moral foundation he discusses is rapidly fading in many areas of the coun...

Re: Attempted robbery at Dixie Gun and Pawn: 1911 saves the day!

Man, are there going to be a lot of sad puppies when it turns out the shop owner was running a .38 Super from his shooting match days.... :mrgreen: And especially if he was shooting a 130 grain bullet with a charge that just barely made a 125 power factor. :shock: I'm going to pray that God will fo...

Re: Do you wear gloves when cleaning your guns?

I use blue medical gloves that I was given and when they run out I'll use some cheap replacements. Plenty of lead and other toxins in our guns to be careful of especially with kids in the house etc. This sounds like blue Nitrile gloves. If so, stick with the Nitrile. I used the regular gloves, but ...

Attempted robbery at Dixie Gun and Pawn: 1911 saves the day!

I thought this robbery/video had been posted on the Forum, but I can't find it. Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you conclusive proof that the 1911 in .45ACP is still king of the battlefield. Note that, unlike girly rounds like the 9mm, the .45ACP put the bad guy down forthwith and no innocent blood wa...

Re: Houston West Quadrant Breakfast

In keeping with a theme there is a Kellys in Stafford. Highway 59 just outside of beltway 8 between wilcrest and kirkwood... Folks who haven't eaten at Kelly's are going to be happy if you folks make that your meeting place. You won't leave hungry! Be sure to order a biscuit (a/k/a breakfast cake) ...

Re: IDPA 2017 rulebook adds Pistol Caliber Carbine Division (PCC) (i.e. rifles)

IDPA appears to be trying to self-destruct. I personally know four people who bought 9mm ARs to shoot PCC and I was shopping parts to build one. Then, the rule book changes yet again and PCC has been demoted to a "specialty division" that the MD may or may not choose to include in a match....

Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

Honest question - how can a Senator provide support for a house bill? I am going to call my senator today and want to know what it is I can actually ask her to do to provide support. There are two ways. If a Senate companion bill is filed, they can sign onto it and/or support it. If no companion is...
