Re: TSA Contact

Well guess what! I found out where the people who fail the TSA test go. They become "Customs" Agents. We were returning from a cruise on Tuesday. My Wife had made a significant Jewelry purchase in Grand Cayman. While clearing customs, the agent told us to "Go into the little room and...

Re: First Time to Travel with a Checked Handgun

I would file a complaint with TSA if I was ever treated like that.

Re: Buh-Bye Optics Planet

Many times companies move with the 'proviso' they'll pay to help employees move with them. They too could do this rather than stating words that add up to: "Hey, it's not our fault we operate in a socialist type (read corrupt) state." They've chosen to stay. Staying in a state of politica...

Re: Buh-Bye Optics Planet

Roy, Magpul did it. ;-) Sure. And Bravo for them. I packed up and left New England in 1986. Left all my friends and family and made a life for myself in Free America. If Texas were to turn blue, how many would choose to stay because they have deep roots here? Why would anyone criticize a company th...

Re: Buh-Bye Optics Planet

A better response is to not do business with any company based in Illinois. It's good to support compatriots caught behind enemy lines.... No? No, not for me. Optics Planet chose and continues to choose operating in an unfriendly county in an unfriendly state dominated by the corruption of Chicago ...

Re: Buh-Bye Optics Planet

if you dig a bit deeper you'll find that they are located in Cook County where the selling of magazines over 10 rounds is prohibited.. It's not as bad as it sounds.. Possible they were recently reminded they were in violation or possible they have not sold 10+ rounders for some time... I don't know ...

Re: Let's Really Protect Our Schools

That will be addressed in the bill. As I said earlier, politics and personal opinions will not be elevated above protecting schools/kids. Someone is finally going to beat Strauss in an election? :thewave Sounds like you missed this.... Texas House Speaker Joe Straus says he will not seek re-election
