Re: Course of Fire

I can't tell you the exact course of fire, but I can give you some basic rules for it. TCOLE requirements are at https://texreg.sos.state.tx.us/public/r ... h=218&rl=9.

Re: Albertsons goes the way of Walmart

OC serves what purpose? It serves the purpose of allowing me to leave my vest off for a few minutes while making a quick trip. I always carry OWB on my right hip due to too many years of experience reaching there for my firearm. For work and school, where I am not allowed to OC, I wear a vest to co...

Re: Walmart has fallen!

Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission rules require establishments selling alcohol for "off premises" consumption display a sign stating that unlicensed carrying of a weapon is a felony. Since Texas does not license the carrying of long guns, rifles are prohibited. Obviously, the carrying of rifles i...

Re: Nobody but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

I beg to differ. I do not think she is the dumbest person to hold office. With people thinking we have been to Mars and that too many people could tip an island over, I don't think she is the stupidest. I will stipulate she is definitely in the running though. And as I typed this, I noticed that all...

Re: TX:Judge orders man to pay 96k in divorce settlement even though she was married to two other men

Here is another story. Apparently this woman has a criminal history. She probably had a better attorney than Athans. However, according to Athans, his son began to research Parchem and learned she had a criminal history. “Some things just didn’t add up,” Athans said. “He went and did a background c...

Re: Not The Whole Book-But Should Be Enough

Question though: I cannot find a Penal Code citation for "aggravated" theft. There's levels of misdemeanor and felony theft based on the value of what was stolen, but I don't find the word "aggravated' in PC Chapter 31 Theft. What was stolen was a purse containing $300.00 dollars and an ID. What ma...

I wonder what state has jurisdiction for crimes committed aboard a space station? And since it is an international station, what country does?

Re: LTC Class and Test in Spanish

I think it is an interesting marketing question. I know of no law or official policy stopping or encouraging any licensed LTC instructor from conducting the class in Spanish. I doubt that there are any statistics available on how many instructors speak any languages other than English. If any instru...

Re: Wisdom from Robert Heinlein

I have no problem with that idea in principle, so long as allowances are made for legitimate reasons. Otherwise, it’s unjust. I never served in the military, but I’m now in my late 60s. So if we converted over to a literal interpretation of this system, I’d lose my rights. I’m not down with that . ...

Re: Wisdom from Robert Heinlein

This thread certainly warms my heart. Heinlein is my favorite author and I have done my best to read everything he has ever written. I got hooked on him with his juvenile books while I was in elementary school. Starship Troopers was always one of my favorite books, along with Stranger in a Strange L...

Re: Medicare- The Health Care Standard Everyone Should Have

This is one of my biggest worries. I retire in about three years and will have to go on medicare then. I don't have a real choice in the supplemental plan because I will get it from the state as part of my retirement. I have not heard any bad stories from retired state workers yet, but it is still b...

Re: Are we de facto in more danger from Republicans than Democrats in regard to 2nd Amendment?

Then please, by all means, tell us all EXACTLY what to do. Do not speak in boilerplate phrases, or offer traditional platitudes. Tell us EXACTLY what specific items we as individuals can do to fix the problem. You can do any of several things. The two biggest steps that you, as an individual, can t...

Re: backpacks or backpack inserts

I'm also waffling on the Level IIIa rating, and wondering if it will be sufficient. I follow school shootings closely. They are going more toward rifle use. I think this may be a false image create by the media. The current bias in the media reporting is targeting AR type rifles and trying to make ...
