Re: Concealed loaded mags and 30.06 signs

I suppose as a compromise one could remove the magazine leaving only 1 round available to anyone else. Not ideal but better than furnishing 6-15 more with the magazine. And if one has a pistol with a working magazine disconnect then the chambered round is useless anyway. Another thought provoker to...

Re: Concealed loaded mags and 30.06 signs

I take all mags ( including the one from inside the pistol and the round from the chamber) with me. I don't want someone who may have broken into my truck and stolen my pistol to have a mag or any ammo to harm anyone( myself included). You've made me think about something that never occurred to me....

Concealed loaded mags and 30.06 signs

I think I'm okay and legal in this situation, but I would like to hear personal experiences, too. When I go inside a hospital or other business that's posted with 30.06 signs, I just leave my gun in the car, but don't remove my empty holster from the belt, nor do I remove my mag pouches on my belt o...

Re: Bottom Handguns!

I had a Taurus 850 CIA All Titanium .38 revolver I carried for 13 years. It had the smoothest DAO trigger, better than any S&W snub nose I've ever owned, and was very accurate. I fed it nothing but Gold Dots and when I sold it, I got as much as I paid for it. They are now impossible to find. I w...

Re: Unlicensed Carry on Private Property

I like the fact that Collin Street Bakery at Hideaway on Hwy 849 near Lindale has a sign at the front entrance encouraging licensed concealed carry on their premises.

Liability of business owners who ban licensed handguns

I live in a gated community that only closes its gates between 9:00pm-5:00am. We have a community room/leasing office that has 30.06/30.07 signage at both building entrances. The signs were installed and our leases added an addendum when the complex changed owners in January, 2016. A couple of month...

Re: TX: Sutherland Springs church 26 dead 20 injured in mass shooting

My landlady just called to tell me that the owners of our apartment complex have decided to pull down the 30.06 signs on our community room/leasing office building and issue a letter signed by one of the owners, who is a lawyer. They are doing the same thing in all their properties in about 3-4 stat...

Re: Poll - How many rounds?

My EDC is a SIG P239 9mm, which uses an 8-rd mag plus one in the chamber. I also carry two spare mags in an OWB 1791 double mag pouch (which is my favorite mag pouch of all times). I carry the P239 in an IWB Vedder Light Tuck or a High Noon Bare Asset holster. I always wear a cover shirt over a t-sh...

Re: Gun Law Question

A close friend of mine recently gave me a .22 rifle that belonged to her husband, who died in 2005. I made out a Bill of Sale, with both our names and addresses on it, and we both signed both copies, and I actually insisted on buying it for $100.00, which was on the Bill of Sale. If it's actually a ...

Re: Which press is right for me question asked for the 100th time

After trying a Lee shotshell reloader as a novice, I soon started reloading pistol cartridges with a single stage RCBS press, then several years later, set up a progressive Dillon with powder and primer feed. You do have to be careful, but I was close to having OCD back then. I loaded all the cartri...

Re: How to get rid of old ammo

An elderly friend of mine recently acquired an old S&W .38 Special Model 10-5, and had a plastic bag with some remanufactured ammo in it that looked really old (lead bullets darkened, brass not shiny). He couldn't remember where he got the cartridges, but probably bought them with the used gun a...

I have the same frustrations. I live in an apartment community that bans me from entering the community room/leasing office by posting 30.06/30.07 signs, so I quit going to the luncheons, bingo games, exercise classes, and other numerous events held there for the tenants. I've lived in this apartmen...
