Re: police/deputies/sherrifs and private communities

We live in a gated community of 23 homes on a private road. We have no HOA and our gate currently remains open but when it did close between 10p-6a our Sheriff Dept did patrol our area as they had a code for the gate. Now we get patrols by the SO and our Constable. Now to be honest, my wife is a ret...

Re: Southwest pilot arrested after gun found in carry-on luggage

Thanks for the quick response, guys. That's comforting. It looks to me like it includes carrying on your person as well as in a carry-on though. I believe it does. Although honestly I think it would be very unlikely for someone to forget they had a gun on their person. Maybe if they were wearing a ...

Re: What would you reach for, handgun or shotgun?

JMO and .02, We have a designated plan for such an event. The wife has the shotgun on her side of the bed which is farthest from the door. She also has her revolver in her nightstand. I have at least 2 handguns in my nightstand, 1 being my carry weapon of the day and the other my normal BUG. We bot...

Re: New Glock convert? We will see.

Until 2 years ago I had very little time with Glocks. I had shot several but did not own one. My wife has a lot more time on a Glock as they have been her department issued sidearm for several years. She owns two G22, one a Gen 3 and the other a Gen 4. Both were her issued sidearms. The Gen 3 she pu...

Re: New TX Resident with other state RESIDENT license

The problem with getting a verbal answer from DPS is the same as a verbal answer from any government entity about any question.... you can talk to 3 different people, ask the same question and get three different answers.

Re: TSA Contact

Yes, you have to have a "real ID" to fly but not to exercise arguably the most important duty we as Americans have and that is to vote. Yes sir, typical Federal bureaucrat logic.

Re: John Cornyn of Texas is focused on bump-stocks

Anybody else baffled by the NRA's call for additional regulations on bump fire stocks? :headscratch Not baffled at all. It is a smart move from the NRA to reduce the liberals momentum. :tiphat: P.S.: Why would a normal person want a device to increase firing rate anyway? Using a loopholes is what O...

Re: Problems wth a Ruger LCP II

Nary a problem with my LCP Coyote Special! As for Glocks, excellent guns but they just don't fit my hands. Too fat and wrong angle in the grip unless it's the single stack models and even those are the wrong angle
