Re: CC/OC in city park at ticketed event

I dare you to open carry... :biggrinjester: No thanks. There's a non-trivial contingent of APD officers that are just aching to "make and example" of an open carrier (I would not doubt that the mayor would give them a bonus in their paycheck, regardless of the legality of their actions, a...

Or just ignore it and carry anyway since it is legal. Or open carry. :evil2:

Re: CC/OC in city park at ticketed event

Resurrecting this thread. Just left the Austin Trail of Lights. Now they have an (illegal) 30.06 sign posted at the entrance. Who wants to (pointlessly) tell the city they’re not permitted?

Re: Crypto-currencies

On the other hand, the basis of BTC is pretty strong, not so much on what it's backed by, but the fact that it's getting harder and harder to make more of it. Isn't that true of every crypto currency based on block chain? Even if the concept has a long term future, maybe BTC is the next Betamax or ...

Re: Crypto-currencies

Yeah, no way - I've only put in an amount I already had (not borrowing) that I'm willing to lose. I did the same. I have investments in BTC and ETH, both of which are nearing 2x my initial investment (I will politely decline to discuss the bitcoinS I sold a few years ago when I thought it was reall...

Re: Fed to seize guns from people who failed background checks

I do not see this as a gun grab but normal business as usual. I agree. Most of you know I ran an FFL biz for many years (and I'm grateful for mrvmax for his sage advice when I first started it!). In those seven or so years, I had two firearms that were in delay mode, then went "Denied" AF...

Re: Glock 41 (45ACP), 4 extra mags $660

It's a sweet pistol. I bought it thinking I would use it for the "Heavy" class in 3 Gun. Put a couple mags through it at Red's and then it went into the safe. Really like it, but the reality is that I have almost zero time anymore to even go to the range, much less 3-Gun matches. Since the...

Re: Bottom Handguns!

I do not understand why Hi-Point makes these lists. Some you list will blow up in your hand, the Hi-Point is just ugly as sin. In my experience I would much rather have a Hi-Point than any semi auto Taurus makes. Ugly pistols are better than single shot pistols. A lot of people wave off these kind ...

Re: D.C.: Al Franken resigns - he made me laugh for the first time.

I don't think that plays well for the dems. My guess, he stays either way. If a Dem wins, there's no election focus and he can simply decide he's not running for reelection, if GOP wins, they claim moral high ground. Gambit here is Moore wins and then resigns to a GOP appointee. In the end, politici...

Re: In Houston: can someone convert a portion of their garage as a PRIVATE indoor shooting lane?

There was an old story I saw some time back about a big warehouse near Downtown Houston. The owner was into bench rest shooting and he had several hundred yards of indoor space to shoot with no wind. I think even at night, they had to be careful as cops might come by about the noise. I think it was...
