Re: "Answer, but don’t open your door" - Hsoi

We are in rural ranch country and our gate is over 600 feet from our front door. We had one unexpected knock on the door in the 12 years we've been here from a neighbor who jumped our fence to chat early one morning (he shared a fence line with us.) That was a really stupid stunt on his part, after ...

Re: CHL holder attempts to stop fatal hit & run.

It turns out this crazy old coot is 89 years old, even if he gets a death sentence he will expire from natural causes before the appeals run out. I pray I'm never in a situation where it's a shoot or no shoot decision.

Re: University Installs ‘Cry Closet’

That also made news in one of my favorite political satire websites - The People's Cube. The head Cube said:

"We have those in the real world too.

It's called your local bar."

Re: TX: Houston construction superintendent robbed murdered at construction site by 2 men

Very sad, probably drug related yet again. Glad I'm in a rural area but I still carry all the time.

Re: RVing

Since we've been carrying for about seven years, we don't take the 40 foot motorhome in gun unfriendly states. We've put 120k miles on the coach in 13 years. We have had the coach on Kirkland AFB visiting a Major (now LTC) friend and we separated the guns from their magazines and placed them in oppo...

Re: My recent situation

Yikes! I have a 2000 model year F-250 diesel but it usually doesn't leave the Kerrville/Fredericksburg area. We've heard about lots of car thefts at La Canterra - isn't that the shopping area west of 1604 on I-10?

Re: .45ACP is still my choice for handgun caliber

Our 1911 is a very favorite gun to shoot, love .45 caliber however my EDC is a Sig P239 in .357 Sig. Lots of energy.

Re: Predator Control. Repel or Kill?

Trap them. If it's hogs or coyotes you can set up snares but they are very, very, very smart - you have to be super stealthy when setting it up.

Re: Fed up with Austin

We're getting some some escapees from the Left Coast in the Hill Country, unfortunately many of them bring their Left Coast values here. It's like a foreign disease.

Re: As Suspected - Marchers are Clueless Sheep

Those high school kids are being used and they are too naive to understand. There's a puppet master orchestrating these demonstrations.

Re: Throwing rocks is more effective than just crawling under desks and waiting

Okay, multilayer defense, I get that but rocks as the last layer? How do you distribute a pail of rocks in a crisis? I appreciate their thinking outside of the box but they need a better last layer.
