Re: Pelosi teases gun control emergency declaration by future Dem President

Will he be spending unappropriated money or redirecting money appropriated for other less important or less urgent causes? Either way we are destroying the principle that Congress controls the purse strings. When presidents can spend what they want on what they want despite Congress, our system of ...

Re: Especially Texan: Emma Daugherty Banister

Like Liberty I did not grow up going to Texas schools. As my username indicates, I learned plenty of Tennessee history as a kid. Between the two "T" states, there are a great many historical linkages that formed long-lasting bonds between the two, so I'd really only learned a bit of Texas history fr...

Re: TSA Rule Change - Bush Intercontinental

This is interesting, because the TSA site says something different. https://www.tsa.gov/travel/transporting-firearms-and-ammunition Firearms must be unloaded and locked in a hard-sided container and transported as checked baggage only. As defined by 49 CFR 1540.5 a loaded firearm has a live round of...

Shooting Qualification While Pregnant

So here's an interesting question I received tonight - and I welcome opinions on this. A gentleman called me tonight inquiring about an LTC course for his wife. She is about 20 weeks pregnant, and they both want her to get her license. With their first born on the way, they want her to be able to ca...

Re: House to car to work to house

On-body carry is always better than off-body, even when in a car. Consider if a carjacker gets you away from your vehicle, you'd still rather have it ON you, then IN his possession. When I have a quick trip, I often switch to my Remora holster. I am not a fan of holsters that fit multiple guns (once...

Washington lieutenant governor skips speech over gun fears

Just another squawking moonbat: Washington state's lieutenant governor declined to preside at Gov. Jay Inslee's State of the State speech Tuesday, saying he was concerned people might bring concealed weapons to the joint session of the Legislature. Lt. Gov. Cyrus Habib, a Democrat, noted that the st...

Re: .22 cal LR not reliable for SD, is a .380?

Would I intentionally carry a .22 for self defense? Likely no, but my carry needs and abilities are not the same as ANYONE else. As I tell my LTC students: The .22 that you will carry is better than the .45 that you won't. The pistol that you will purse carry is better than the one you won't carry o...

Re: The Boy Scouts Filing Bankruptcy After A String Of “Woke” Decisions Caused It To Go Broke

This disappoints me immensely. I have many great memories in the BSA. To see this once great organization brought to its knees by progressives is a wrong I will not easily forget.

Genuine Mags or aftermarket?

I'm buying some new mags for my Ruger Mark II 22/25. To all the wise ones out there: is there REALLY a benefit to buying genuine Ruger parts vs. aftermarket mags such as MecGar ? At nearly half the price, I'm finding it hard to buy the Ruger brand parts, unless someone here has a better suggestion b...
