Re: Mechanical trustworthiness

Many many years ago my father told me, never trust the mechanical safety on a firearm. They can break, they can jam, just like the bolt can become jammed. You can be ready to take a shot at an animal, be all sighted in and ready to flip the safety off and it's jammed for some reason. By the time you...

Re: Ft Worth Enforcing Ammo Ban at Will Rodgers

What exactly did the sign say. Here is the central part of the state the show sponsor exhibits a sign that is close to 30.06 and there is usually a police officer sitting at a desk by the entrance. I ignore it and walk in as it is unenforceable and I consider the sign and check is for firearms being...

Re: Texans can now get Illinois Non-resident CCL.

It would be much better if they recognized Texas. This makes them something like D.C. In that they recognize there own but everybody else has to get there non-resident carry permit.

Re: Bad News Folks

It is possible the Trump administration may try to out maneuver the Fouth Circuit ruling with an executive order designating AR-15-like weapons of American manufacture as "authorized and appropriate for individual citizens to keep and bear for Militia purposes under the Constitution and the la...

Re: Concealed Carry In Your Vehicle

If you travel in other than Texas you may want to be careful of the built in hidden compartment. In some states it's against the law.

Re: Interpreting TWU Campus Carry

I attended the Skywarn training today. It was held in the TWU MCL building auditorium. Immediately across from auditorium doors was one of the rooms that was apparently determined by the TWU policy to be off limits and there was a very large scale 3006 sign on the door to that room. Because of its ...

Re: Smoking at the Pump

Took a college course once where a professor extinguished a lit cigarette in cup full of gas. A cigarette burning by itself (not inhaling) does not burn hot enough to ignite gasoline. Just useless knowledge. :iagree: but it's the fumes that can ignite easily. I have observed a shop teacher quenchin...

Re: Interesting events at Boerne Walmart

The person most likely wanted the phones without activation. Those prepaid phones aren't typically activated at the time of purchase. It's done later online. When the phone is scanned for sale the register requests that the serial number also be scanned. Usually people buying in quantity don't want...

Re: Interesting Legal Issue

Generally, in order to claim self defense, one must be in a place where he has a legal right to be. For example, the bad guy who broke into your house can't shoot back when you shoot at him and claim self defense. He is a trespasser, so he loses that defense. Obviously, if you illegally carry past ...

Re: GSD or Belgian Malinois Breeders?

You can cut down the shedding tremendously if you use one of these on your dog a couple times a week. I can't get the picture to appear so I will describe it. It's called a Furminator. The steel comb is horizontal while the handle is vertical. It has close teeth like a lice comb and a button to push...
