Re: How long have you been carrying?

October 2008 - Took my CHL class after being made aware of the deal from a Hawaiian transplant to Texas. 12/2/08 - Plastic was received, but I didn't have a gun yet! 1/23/09 - First carried into a junkyard while I was looking for parts.

It will only say "CHP" if you are a member of the California Highway Patrol. :-)

Re: Dilemma - Car breaks down on way to work

Take an Uber home, store the firearm. Take the Uber to work.

Then buy a new Mazda.

See....there's an easy solution for both problems (gun at work & troubled ride). :-)

Re: WTS/WTT RIA 1911 3.5" DFW

Can we assume this is a .45 ACP?

Caliber has not been stated.

Thank you.

Re: Girl Shoots Boyfriend To Death In YouTube Stunt

IIRC, the woman shooter has been charged with 2nd degree manslaughter under Minnesota law.

The book, by the way, was a hardcover encyclopedia.

YMMV, depending upon news source.

Maybe if she used a .380, death would not have been assured, but a .50!!!!!!

Re: House Majority Whip Shot

According to early reports the gunman has been arrested on the scene.
Senator Flake believes the shooter started his attack with a long gun, then switched to a handgun.
YMMV.

Re: Amarillo road trip - Everyone should visit!

No, we stayed busy with the sites I mentioned above.

We wanted to see the Plains Museum, but ran out of time.

Amarillo road trip - Everyone should visit!

Last Tuesday through Friday, we took a road trip up to Amarillo. I had never been there before. From Lake Dallas to central Amarillo it was 329 miles and we made it in about 5 hours. Our 2 main stops were seen, plus we saw a bunch more. I'll summarize the places we visited. It was kind of funny beca...

Re: Best Carry Position While Driving

The rule of thumb for leaving escape room for you to escape around the vehicle in front of you is to stop far enough back so that you can see the entire rear bumper and 100% of their rear tires. FYI.

Re: Taurus pistols - $39 Million settlement

The entity which is handling the claims is Heffler, whose phone number is 1-844-528-0180. I called them today and the recording states that 3 parties have disputed the settlement, so it is not yet finished. I was considering turning in my PT-111 for the $50 gift card at the Fort Worth PD gun buyback...

Re: Best Carry Position While Driving

I have a "Kingston" holster which fastens around the driver's seat and positions my car gun on the front face of said seat.

My onbody pistol(s) stay where they are
and the seatbelt holster draw is easy and snag free.

Re: Kansas City: Comic book store robbed

It's incidents like this that point out the stupidity of the anti's standard answer to "call 911" if something is happening. This poor victim couldn't even get the ambulance rolling, let alone armed LEO's. Everyone must carry their handguns on body every day. You have to be your own first ...

Re: UK: Gun free England is acid attack capital of the world

The immigrants have brought their curry, but they brought their acid habits too. Some Brits may be proud of their "no guns" situation, but acid attacks and blade attacks are not much of an improvement. Some British homeowners and shopkeepers who fight off their robbers have then been charg...
