Re: What happened in New Hampshire today?

They're pretty active on Facebook. They hold a festival every summer called Porc Fest with a porcupine as the mascot. There is even a real estate agent associated with the movement and they have a moving guide. They also have a housing and a job page on Facebook. On another note I had seen a simila...

Re: Arlington Homeowner Shoots Car Burglar

Criminal mischief after dark! Possible. They would be damaging tangible property (vehicle) at night of the homeowner. http://codes.findlaw.com/tx/penal-code/penal-sect-28-03.html Again, it's going to depend on the prosecutor. He may actually send it to a Grand Jury to let them decide. Keith, You kn...

Re: The State of Texas made a mistake? SAY IT AIN't SO!

You don't remember what a 67 Fairlane looked like. "rlol" http://carphotos.cardomain.com/ride_images/3/3540/4521/33849760001_large.jpg?v=1 I had a 67 Custom 500 with the 390 interceptor package. Couldn't keep rear tires on it until I put a set of Gates H-70/15 Custom Riverias on it. Then ...

Re: The State of Texas made a mistake? SAY IT AIN't SO!

I would have had him reschedule for another test, the day he failed the original try. In the interim, he would have mastered parallel parking and likely he would have tested again long before the plastic arrived.... Seems like there are details missing. But to answer your question straight up- I wo...

Re: Property in and out of city

A similar thread reminded me of a discussion I was having with a friend a while back. Friend has three acres that are rather long and narrow. He fronts on a road that the city has extended a tendril down but only about 100 ft either side. Obviously for tax purposes. He has been lead to believe that...

Re: Henry Rifles: New for 2017

I have been wondering what it would take to create some loading tubes like were originally made for the Spencer Carbine. It would definitely speed up reloading until you had emptied all of your loading tubes. :coolgleamA: I've been considering the same thing and thinking about PVC if I can find a s...

Re: Henry Rifles: New for 2017

Since Henry has added a magazine-fed model, I hope they consider making them available with a loading gate. The Henry actions are the smoothest I've seen on any level gun. Chas. :iagree: :thumbs2: I have a Big Boy .44 The only thing I don't like about it is what it takes to load it. I do like that ...

Re: Need help - our new employee got arrested a week ago

Texas is a right to work! But also idk what ur policy is but a lot of companies have where if they employee admits they have a problem with drugs on their own then they cant be fired and the company usually helps. But if you give her a drug test and she fails then you are good to go. Recommend a dr...

Re: Workplace Violence Policy

Why do I find the mantra of run/hide/fight questionable? To me it sounds hollow. My mantra would be: Find cover and shoot back. Corporations especially are loath to allow employees personal guns to protect themselves. They'd rather a flock of unarmed sheep if a killer of innocents shows up. Better ...

Re: Outragous - Dicks Sporting Goods

Best advice I have is stay away from the mega chains, buy from smaller companies that really need the sale. Even if its a $1 more, i'd rather avoid the corporate monsters and help small business. The same reason i've purchased my last two pistols from a local gun store and not Academy. They care mo...

Re: Thinking About Defense of Others

I've already responded to the legal issues, but I want to add this as well. I give my "mall example" in all of my LTC classes. We talk about the natural instinct of many people to help those in danger and the risk this entails when you 1) don't know the people involved; and 2) didn't see ...

Re: Almost had a ND

at nearly 64 years old I am still waiting for my first ND. Though way back in 1975 I was sitting next to a friend of mine when he had one. It was at the Royal Military Academy - we had just returned from the range with our private weapons (that was what we did on Wednesday sports afternoons instead...

Re: Tough one - loose dog - their property

Here's the situation. I live in a Texas subdivision that has community mailboxes. The mailbox for my house is down a few houses from mine. On several occasions, the resident of that house allows their large (pitbull like) dog to run freely in the front yard or from the curb to the home. On 2 occasi...
