Re: HB1911 Com Substitute and HB560

Sheesh. So if a business had a 30.07 sign, but no gunbuster sign, and I wanted to go in carrying openly, I could toss my LTC into the glove box before I went into the store. Then I'd be a legal unlicensed carrier.......???? This is all going to be idiotically complicated. You won't find 1 business ...

Re: Cracker Barrel bans guns?

I have OC'd in CB, have seen one other OC in CB ( I may be the poster you are referring to). I have been to several CB locations while OCing and CCing with no issues.

I would be severely disappointed if their stance has changed because my wife loves CB.

Re: What is CSHB 1911?

The 1911 hearing just finished. 1911 was withdrawn and left pending. Is that normal? Encouraging? A bad sign? This is the regular procedure. Bills are almost always left pending after the first hearing and voted on the next week or even later, if at all. Committee substitutes are not published unit...

Tragic Loss in the shooting community

We lost a great guy and a great member of the shooting community this weekend. For anyone who has been shooting in the Houston area, you either know or have met Paul Hoffman. He was active with Team Trainwreck and shot at the PSC IDPA matches on a fairly frequent basis. Paul was killed in a freak ac...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Him getting elected did a lot for gun owners . Removing the restrictions in those locations would be great and important. However, I believe he is dealing with much more urgent and pressing issues at the moment. He has done a lot in the short time he's been in office. Added emphasis mine. I don't s...

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,...
