Re: CHL Denial

People come on here to find answers not to judged or preached at. The guy didn't post anything that looked trollish or like grabber bait to me. He just stated a case and asked a question. Folks seem pretty jumpy here lately. This Group is about guns, and promoting the first amendment we should try t...

Re: How Effective are Target Wadcutters as a Self-Defense Load?

All I know is that a lot of cops for a lot of years were using .38 special wadcutters. They were a pretty popular round back then. I don't know why they weren't using hollow points back then. I was using hollowpoint .22s as a kid back in the 60s.

Re: Taking on the Cedar Park Center - Heb Center

Well, the City of Cedar Park responded (the city attorney specifically) to my inquiry within about an hour on a Sunday evening. I'll call that good service even if I didn't like the contents of the answer. He pointed to the OAG opinion here: https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/opinions/opinions/51...

Re: Why do we need 30.06/7?

What offends me about this whole 30.06 thing is that the signs attempt to restrict what I'm wearing that unexposed to anyone. I can carry a pocket knife or a can of mace or leftist propoganda in my pants it's nobodys business but my own. I don't believe that any business or private citizen should ha...

Re: Things and Sayings That Annoy!

What really annoys me is OCD people that correct people for no reason. People who believe that calling a magazine a clip, or cartridge a bullet are somehow defective. I guess I never would have thought of correcting my drill sargeants when they called them clips. They might be wrong but who was I to...

Re: Recommend an AR at $700 max

How is the Ruger in terms of accuracy and zhootability Which Ruger? The MPR or the basic AR556? The AR 556 is very shootable. The adjustable stock has an excellent range. The trigger is a milspec quality. I shoot mine with iron sites at 100 yards. I can keep my rounds in a 4 inch circle, the gun is...

Anyone who is approaching 65 or older will get a ton of these calls this time of year. I think Medicare sells our phone numbers.

Re: Recommend an AR at $700 max

I am not mechanically inept, but one reason I haven't built one I don't find the choices that easy to make. One of the reasons I suggested a Ruger is not just because the price was in range, but because of the Reputation of the gun. Making choices of stocks and bolts, rifle barrel uppers and even si...

Re: Self-driving shuttle bus in crash on first day

They claim it was the fault of the human dring the other vehicle. The Tram between terminals at Bush International is automated has no drivers. Its pretty old technology, but it doesn't engage with traffic on real streets,
