Friend had me take a photo of his Mossberg 590A1 Retrograde with social distancing gauge. IMHO, this may be one of the best looking shotties on the market today.
Wow! Very cool! Does it also come with the bayonet?

Re: Supremes Say NYC Gun Law is Moot

They know at some point they will have to clarify Heller (rational basis, intermediate scrutiny, or strict scrutiny?) We will never be privy to the discussions among the justices and that is a good thing, but I would almost be willing to bet that this was why they ruled the case moot. There were en...

Re: EDC knife

Great thread! I sometimes carry a small, old Case pocket knife like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Case-Sodbuster-Jr-Yellow/dp/B00AQ6748O I sometimes carry a small Cobratec OTF like this one that comes with an emergency car window punch at the end of the handle: https://cobratecknives.com/collecti...

You might want to check out the "ticket" risk. Some penalties I have seen mentioned could cost folks their LTC for 7 years ......
Wow, well that’s even worse. Thanks for sharing that.

Re: Closed gun ranges

The Terrell Rifle and Pistol Club is still open. However, when I called the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Department to clarify whether the excepted “outdoor activities” includes target shooting at a private, outdoor range, they emphatically said it did not. So although it’s open, I may run the risk of g...

Re: Need help with “Essential Businesses”

On a positive note Denton County included gun and ammunition retailers as essential in their order which went into effect last night. Sadly, Ellis County, which once issued a declaration as one of a number of 2nd Amendment supporting Texas counties, did not include gun and ammo sales on its essenti...

Re: El Paso to Alpine: 2020 Lonestar Cowboy Poetry Gathering.

The annual poetry even sounds cool. I visited Alpine and BBNP for the first time a few years ago. I never saw any javelina, but I did see some exotic-looking range animals with tall straight horns. I'm guessing they belonged to someone who offers exotic hunts on their ranch. I fell in love with that...

Re: Outdoor private ranges like Mission 160

The North TX/DFW area is a geographically large area. I’ve never heard of Mission 161 and have no idea where it is. So my guess is that it’s far from the southern part of DFW where I’m more familiar. That said, TDSA in Ferris and ETTS in Waxahachie are private membership ranges that allow you to do ...

Re: WACO TACTICAL FITNESS BIATHLON OCT 12

If I remember correctly, I think their longest distance target was 600 yards at their 2018 10K event. So if you can find a range that offers that kind of distance, that would help. FWIW, my range only goes out to 200 yards. I was still able to make their 600 yard shot, even though I had never shot t...

As one of Puerto Rican descent who once lived in Puerto Rico, this is good news for our fellow Americans living in that US Territory.

Re: FL: 3 dead 3 wounded at NAS Pensacola.

What a shame. I used to live in Pensacola and enjoyed visiting the naval air museum on base. My daughter still lives there. Beautiful area. My condolences to the victims’ families.
