Re: OK GOP. You win

Worked fine for me. The article in the link says, "Rep. Mo Brooks files bill to repeal Obamacare"

Here's a link directly to the bill text: https://www.scribd.com/document/3432088 ... Repeal-Act

Re: HB1911: Rep. White's Press Release

My interpretation is that 30.08 signs will be added to restrict unlicensed carry. You are correct if what I was sent is accurate, which seems to be supported by the Press Release. The language used in what I was sent is "Pursuant to Section 30.08, Penal Code (trespass by person not licensed to...

Re: HB1911: Rep. White's Press Release

http://www.texas3008.com We're getting ready for the inevitable flood of new signage if this bill passes when the news organizations report impending blood in the streets. :) I was going to do this in a PM, but no way to attach I'm getting a Comodo warning at 3008 I don't get at 3006 (Using their D...

Re: Husqvarna 450 Chainsaw 18" - Got One?

Does anyone know if non-CARB compliant is better than CARB-compliant in a chain saw? (or anything else for that matter...?) I have a sneaking suspicion that CARB-compliant may possibly mean that either a machine is so overly loaded with gadgets in order to be "eco-friendly" such gadgets d...

Re: HB 560 - Holy Grail?

I'm disappointed about HB 560, but to be honest I wanted it for selfish reasons. I believe the same can be said for all of us. In truth, HB 1911 has the potential of helping many more Texans than 560 ever would. It could particularly help lower income folks who have no choice but to live in some of ...

Re: Slow Connection Speed on Remote Computer

I use an app called speedtest to see how fast our wireless does at different locations. The best (most reliable) speed test today does not need an app. Just open your browser and go to http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest It works with pc's, smartphones, and nearly anything else as long as it has a ...

Strange since he was such a 1911 fanatic. Sort of blows holes in some people's arguments that 1911s are inherently unreliable, doesn't it? :lol:

Re: Trijicon RMR Red or Green

I have amber (RM04), but they offer green too: https://www.trijicon.com/na_en/products/product2.php?mid=Dual-Illuminated The best part about these is there are no batteries. In daylight, they use fiber optics so they just naturally adjust to ambient light conditions. When it gets too dark, tritium t...

Re: Temple LEO Decides He Doesn't Want to be a Cowboy

I've been in similar situations many times. If you spend much time at all working with cattle, you learn that the only predictable part of their behavior is their unpredictability.
