Re: Ellis County Court Opened To LTC

Looks like they’re talking about the old historic building:

Re: Ellis County Court Opened To LTC

Interesting. I live in Ellis County. I’m confused, though. Not sure if they’re talking about the old, historic county building, or the brand new courthouse and county government building, or both?

Re: Stray dogs in Florida maul man to death in 4th of July attack

I admit I was scared when they came at me. It was weird how they surrounded me, too. I had one in front, one on my right flank and the other on my left flank. They formed a triangle. They were just outside my kicking distance, too. I remember thinking about those predator vs prey animal shows on TV ...

Re: Stray dogs in Florida maul man to death in 4th of July attack

Forgot to add, that if there were rocks or a stick nearby, I would’ve armed myself with them. Instead, they caught up with me right in the middle of an open field with nothing around except grass.

Re: Stray dogs in Florida maul man to death in 4th of July attack

I was chased by 3 stray dogs while out jogging near my apartment complex many years ago. I stopped to face them, and they stopped as well and surrounded me. It was a classic pack hunt move on their part. I doubt I could’ve taken the 3 of them on unarmed, but I wasn’t going to go down without a fight...

Re: WACO TACTICAL FITNESS BIATHLON OCT 12

I did it last October. Much harder than I thought it would be. It was very wet, soggy and muddy, which added to the difficulty. My AR got scratched up and still has mud imbedded in the buttstock. Although I trained by routinely jogging 7 miles with a 20 lb backpack, I was exhausted by mile 3. My sho...

Re: Stag Arms announces decision to relocate

My first, and so far only, AR build is a Stag. I also hope they move to Texas!

Re: Best compact 1911? Or favorite DA/SA carry

Y’all have some nice compact 1911s. And I’ve never shot a Colt Defender but am now curious to try one. Anyway, it’s not a compact 1911, but I sometimes carry a single stack S&W 3913 (9mm) that’s a DA/SA. I got it used a few years ago for less than $400. I like it a lot, but there aren’t as many hols...

I typed out “W-T-F” but the board’s auto censor changed it to “what the heck.”

Re: Lonestar Armory Run and Gun (Biathlon)

I’ve only done the what the heck RnG in Crawford but would also like to try the Impact RnG as well. I think Impact is only a 5K, though, right?

Re: Lonestar Armory Run and Gun (Biathlon)

That’s impressive you were able to complete each stage. I read somewhere that the vast majority of competitors fail to do that. My first, and so far only, RnG had me DNF every single stage except one. Very humbling!

I forget the brand (DeSantis maybe?), but the Waxahachie Academy has 1911 holsters.

Re: Off The Beaten Path - Tennessee Colony, TX & Yard, TX

Interesting history. My Dad and I went hog hunting at Boar Creek Ranch in Tennessee Colony about 3 years ago. Quiet, rural area with some good hog hunting.
