because of my outstanding levels of relevant experience and my amazing record of high achievement I have been selected to report for Jury duty tomorrow in Houston. Having never been summonsed for Jury duty before I don't know what to expect. Based on my limited knowledge I plan to do the following:...

Can an off-duty LEO legally carry a handgun into a courtroom as a juror?

Re: Renewal frustration...

Why does the renewal process get 60 days? They shouldn't have to do a full background check, and they already have the fingerprints. In the year 2018 this process should be easily automated. Electronic application is received. Electronic background check commences (only needs to include the period ...

Re: Jury duty in Houston tomorrow

So I arrived early and parked, and made my way to the jury assembly room well before the 8:00 start time. At about 8:30 they took the first juror pool to the civil court, I was not in the pool. After that we waited... at 9:30 the bailiff arrived from the criminal court. They took 65 of us... I was n...

Re: Jury duty in Houston tomorrow

I have done jury duty quite few times, I think because I show up. There are three court systems that use juries: Federal Court, County District Court, Municipal Court (City of Houston). Check your summons. Know where are you to report. If you are in County District Court (Harris), there is a webpag...

Re: Jury duty in Houston tomorrow

I hadn't thought about the risk of boredom as I always imagine that they immediately usher the prospective jurors into a room with cubicles where they start pulling people aside one by one and asking them all sorts of questions. Then I always imagined that you are either selected for a jury or sent ...

Re: What are your 2018 shooting goals?

If I can make it to the range about once per month that would be doing really well for me. Other than that I would really like to take a pistol class. I could probably count on one hand the number of times I visited the range in 2017. I did burn through about 350 rounds on Saturday though. It was a ...

Re: "Gun-Buster" Sign Legal?

My favorite gunbuster sign is in the Freddy's burger joint in Waco. It says something like, "For the comfort of all our customers, we respectfully ask that you not openly carry firearms in Freddy's." I saw a similar sign outside of a Taco Cabana recently. I see them a lot at the local fas...

Re: .300 BLK pistol

Very nice, similar to a build I just finished, except mine is chambered in 5.56. Still need an optic and flashlight, but this will be mostly used as a home defense weapon, and for some plinking. I’m pretty sure if your oal is >26inches you can have a vertical grip, can anyone verify? If you mean a ...
