Re: You missed one of the great Super Bowl games!

Spent some time at the plate rack. Range was really empty. So, yes, I did enjoy the game.

Re: Essential long gun collection

Best way to build a good long gun collection 1. Get a random customer to go grab a random box of ammo off the shelf for you. 2. Take said box of ammo home 3. Convince the wife that you need to get a gun to go with new ammo (don't mention anything to her if random ammo winds up being a caliber you al...

Drones can be used for bad things. Drones can be used for good things.

Re: Mother of dead Popeyes robber: ‘Why did he shoot him five times'

Now it makes me wonder. If I were in that situation, how many shots would I pull off before I stop? I know it'll be at least two, possibly 3 depending on how likely the perp is to be incapacitated at that point. That is all assuming I'm in control of my faculties as adrenaline is pumping through my...

Re: KS:Witchta man dies after fake "Swatting" call

Plus, if they don't prosecute the officer for the death, can you really punish the SWAT'er as an accessory to murder? :iagree: if the shooter is not guilty then the caller is not guilty. From Wikipedia: Constructive manslaughter is also referred to as "unlawful act" manslaughter. It is ba...

Re: KS:Witchta man dies after fake "Swatting" call

Do not go outside. If you do go out side put your hands in the air and do not do anything else even if they tell you to. No matter what. I find it hard to believe that if you just not answer the door, LE will go away. In fact now it totally justifies a crack team of commandos with APC's, tear gas, ...

Re: Houston Folks: PSC Range Day after Christmas?

We don't have a set date right now, we are just trying to figure things out. After the new year may be best. Since I don't hunt, when is deer season over? Regular season is over Jan 7. We do a hunt for wounded veterans during doe and spike mid January. Since we are MLD, our season doesn't end until...

There should be an amendment to this proposal removing all security measures (security guards, LEO presence, metal detectors, ect) from the council meetings.

Re: Adios Academy

I buy a lot of my ammo at Academy. They aren't the cheapest but prices are usually reasonable and they're convenient. That's about to change. I ordered three range buckets from Academy on Black Friday. They sent a confirmation email. They charged my credit card. Then last week I got an email saying...
