Re: BREAKING: P320 Recall Issued By Dallas Police | Prohibited From Duty Till Repaired

Around 4-5 years ago Springfield had the recall on their XDS 45 ACP. They were initially inundated with returns so I waited about a year or so and mailed it in. Got it back about a week later fixed with a free mag.

State Rep Carrying?

I was pleasantly surprised this morning when I opened the Austin American Statesman and right there on the front page was a photo of a Texas State Rep who appeared to be carrying at about the 9 o'clock position. Good for him if that in fact was a pistola.

Re: Beiruty is back from Beirut, Lebanon

Welcome back Beiruty. I was just reading in a USMC publication last week about a ceremony at the American Embassy, Beirut in 2014 where the Marine Security Guard (MSG) detachment was re-established after nearly 30 year absence of MSG's at the embassy. I have more then a passing interest in this as I...

FBI Switch

I read this morning (not really new news) that the FBI is going to the 9mm from the .40. The new firearm will be the Glock Gen5 G-17M and G-19M. And as usually happens numerous federal agencies will follow along as well as some locals. The thing that caught my interest a little bit is that there is ...

Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

Mr. Cotton - That is the best idea I have heard this year regarding 560/CC. I will support you and your bill to the full extent I can. It makes perfect sense.

Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

Received an email this morning (like probably a lot you all did) from Alice Tripp/TSRA why constitutional carry (CC) did not make it this past session and what they (TSRA) are going to do to get it done in the next session. Sure sounded to me that CC was going to be the priority next session. The di...

Re: Knife Law

I am just trying to get this straight in my mind. Am I correct in thinking I can carry a knife over 5.5 in. long in a church or hospital as long there is no 06/07 sign posted (after 9/1/17) or am I misreading something. I don't carry a knife short or long but I'm just trying to get this straight.

Re: Online Veteran Exchange looking for beta testers

Thanks Dale and others. Dale I will give DEERS a shot.

I also had trouble for the discount at Lowe's and had to take my DD-214 to gt hooked up with them

Maybe my problem is the fire inasmuch as I was discharged prior 1970.

Re: Stabbing at The University of Texas

I lived in Haiti in the early sixties for a little over 2 years but don't recall ever hearing anything about a 1804 Haitian massacre. There did appear to be a lot of machetes around during my time there an was a weapon of choice for some.

Re: Stabbing at The University of Texas

Prayers for all involved and their families. A lot of lives have been shaken by this. Even if an LTC holder did step in to stop it, it would never be reported as such from Austin. The Chief of police wold indeed give his department the credit as would all of MOM's and the rest of the leftist's. Tha...
