Re: Is Zuckerberg Being Truthful - Your Review!

He seems very well coached in avoiding pointed questions. Of the many concerns the public wants answers to is FB listening in on conversations - in other word 'stealth audio' of sorts...then bingo an ad on your pc regarding your previous conversation pops up. Could be about any subject. Or, not acc...

Re: Secession?

Texas would be allowed to secede per the treaty that was signed. Whatever the treaty might or might not have said, the point is moot... Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia stated much more succinctly than I ever could: "If there was any constitutional issue resolved by the Civil War, it is th...

Re: Can it be?: We may lose more gun rights under Trump than Obama?

There is a larger "war", there is an upcoming election where we could lose seats. Bump stocks are like a fighter jet dumping chafe to divert a missile and buy time.

Re: Self driving vehicles creep me out. How will feds mandate purchases?

I think about it from two angles. one, I like driving, motorsports of all kinds. It’s sad to me to see driving as a skill become obsolete. Two l, I think about it from a computer programming approach. most accident with an autonomous vehicle are caused by a human error in another car. So assuming th...

Re: Armed citizens patrol SA neighborhoods

When I was growing up (pre-internet, pre-pc, etc) I was taught that the word "COP" was an acronym for the phrase " Citizen on Patrol". I see now that wiki says it came from "Constable on Patrol". But anyway it's not a new concept. I was told when I was in high school t...

Re: Texas to Florida in June

I did this drive several years ago and made myself a little chart to have in my car to show me which states I needed obey signs but the main thing I wanted to be sure of that I have not already seen posted here is which states I needed to notify LEO in case I got stopped.

Re: WA man arrested after killing intruder in shower

Did he go home to get a gun? That article didn't say where he went unless I missed something. Firing through the shower curtain seems to indicate the threat might be questionable. Call the police would probably have been a better response even if it was perfectly legal. I thought in Texas there doe...

WA man arrested after killing intruder in shower

I wasn't sure if I should stick this in the Crime Blotter section or Self Defense section. I put it here because he's charged. Leaving the scene to get a gun and coming back instead of calling the police doesn't sound like a good idea. I don't know if there is more to the story but it didn't sound l...

Re: Every day hearing protection

Check out Surefire. I'd give you a link but I'm using my phone. They have several models with slightly different features. What I use has a little cap you can leave open to allow more sound but suppress louder sounds or close it for max suppression. I use these for riding my motorcycle and wanted so...

In Texas there is also a "Use" tax. Anyone who buys taxable goods and services that are stored, used or consumed in Texas from a seller who does not charge Texas sales tax owes Texas use tax. https://www.comptroller.texas.gov/taxes/sales/use-tax.php So all you tax evaders must start filli...

Re: Gunsmith in DFW area?

I am seeking a qualified gunsmith to work on Browning HP P-35 (1951). I shot it for the first time and I am getting a consistent FTE with Reloads Ammo as well as Facotry Ammo. My best guess the extractor is sliding off the casse rim and the case is half way in the chamber. The Slide goes back forwa...
