Re: Hearing Protection Act of 2017

Admittedly, I surround myself with a lot of like minded individuals. I was having a hard time coming up with arguments that the left could make AGAINST this bill. Suppressors do not make firearms any more or less efficient in the context of being killing machines. As someone with firearm related hea...

Re: Compilation of disqualifications in shooting sports

I have been an SO for a little over 4 years and have had to DQ quite a few folks. Even had to DQ one at IDPA Nationals this year for a 180 violation.

I have been DQ'd for sending one over the berm during a reload at a USPSA match. :shock:

Re: 9mm ammo: anyone used these brands?

Give Orr a try. Fantastic ammo, more reliable and consistent than pretty much any factory brand and made here in Tx :txflag: https://www.orrtactical.com/ Full disclosure, I am sponsored by Orr, but it really is fantastic ammo. I became interested in being sponsored by Orr because I really do like th...

This is really going to get good when it is determined that he was shooting a Kimber Solo, or an STI 2011 in 9mm.

Re: HB375 constitutional carry getting media attention.

in many of the states you can chose to get a permit. I honestly don't have an opinion on Constitution carry. What I sort of have a problem with is Texas being the last state to pass it. lol Dont worry...Texas won't be last. We will at least be ahead of California, New York, and DC! From what I can ...

Re: HB375 constitutional carry getting media attention.

One concern I would have about constitutional carry would be some people carrying that do not have any training and have no idea what they are doing. I understand it is our constitutional right as it is. Just not necessarily lawful to do so without an LTC. I see the value in the classroom and quali...

Re: I have to vent a little

Sorry about that. In my defense, I thought you gave up and were leaving when you got on the phone... The price I heard was better than I had negotiated 20 minutes earlier and I was in a hurry so offered the same. just kidding! But it doesn't sound like the seller knew you had accepted the deal. OK,...

Re: HB375 constitutional carry getting media attention.

I'm not sure what the problem is with it when several more states just implemented it...what's up Texas? are we going to be last? I am being brutally honest here, I acknowledge that I am somewhat selfish in my thinking. With a permitted system, I still have the ability to protect myself. I don't li...

Re: HB375 constitutional carry getting media attention.

While this bill is DOA, it's good that it's getting media attention. Let the Anti's spend political capital on defeating this one. A tactic that the other side has employed over and over (successfully) is to introduce things that go way further than you actually want to get at this time, then the &q...

Re: Legislation Scheduling?

While it's frustrating to watch good bills languish in committee and often have the clock run out on them, I'll take our part time legislature over a legislature that strips freedom full time. Even in Texas, take a look at all bills passed this session and lump them into one of three bins: Bin 1, al...

Re: RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SMALL COMPACT SEMI FOR PETITE LADY

As has been stated already, the P938/238s are expensive, but you will not find a better small pistol out there. Buying a cheaper pistol and then doing a trigger job to make it somewhat close to the Sig trigger will make up most of the difference in price. For the record, I'm not a Sig fan, the P938 ...
