Re: Fort Worth Zoo vs. Texas State Fair

In regards to the title of "Amusement Park" I did a generic Google search "Amusement Parks in North Texas. As you can guess, several parks came up, but oddly enough, neither of the DFW zoos were anywhere on the search. Go figure. Could it be that NOBODY considers them amusement parks?

Re: 1911 holster. Kydex or leather?

As a few others have said, it depends on the purpose. When I OC in town I use kydex. When out in the country I have a well made leather holster with retention strap.

Re: When is a school a school?

I taught public school for 29 years but now teach at a private school. We are accredited. The building is posted 30-07 only. No, I do not carry. The school board says "no". An interesting situation is that sometimes during the school day church members meet in unused classrooms. Since they are condu...

Allen Event Center posted 06 & 07

Sorry this is a few days late and couple dollars short, but a friend and I went to the gun show at the Allen Event Center two weekends ago and upon entering saw two 06 & 07 signs as we paid. The Texas3006.com web site also says the signs are invalid. Who do we need to contact to get them to obey the...

Thanks so much for the replies. I greatly appreciate all of the wise and honest answers. It's one of those decisions we know we need her to take for his benefit as well as the safety of everyone else. All of his guns are in a safe, and he already has difficulty opening it. We just need to break it t...

Friend with Alzheimer's

I have a friend who has Alzheimer's. He's had his carry licence for over 15 years. His doctor has already recommended that he no longer drive. His wife's concern is that if he carries and uses his weapon in self defense, will there be risks of liability if he's sued? His renewal comes up this Januar...

Re: My Leftist Son....! ? !

My daughter, now a senior in college at Harding University, was teetering on the brink her senior year in high school. In conversations around the dinner table she'd quote statistics on global warming, and the like. I could almost hear her Environmental Studies teacher as she spoke. Luckily, her con...

Re: 30.06 on INSIDE doors

Locations can tend to be inconsistent, at best. At a Plano restaurant I went into the 30-06 sign was on the left after I had to go through TWO sets of doors, and on the wall about 8 feet up. I almost didn't see it - and I was intentionally looking for such signage, too. :nono:

Carter Blood Care Bus

Our church had the Carter Bus Sunday. While I was donating, I sat across an interesting sign. It was the typical Glock gun buster. But below an English and Spanish language sign was the words "Pursuant to HB 30-06 & 30-07". There is no way this can be legal, right?

Re: No longer patronizing Jason's Deli.

I agree with others 'tis better to let a sleeping dog lie. They may just be uninformed and think they have solved the problem. If you choose to OC and they serve verbal notice, then you'll know. Some businesses post those stickers because it's what businesses do. Like having no shoes. Or honoring su...

Re: Poll - How many rounds?

Normally I carry my M&P9 for CC and OC so 17+1 plus a spare mag. If I want to remain very CC (Church, social outing, etc) I carry my Taurus G2 with 12+1 and spare mag. On days when I'm feeling very 'MERICA I carry my 1911 .45 7+ 1 w/ a spare 8 rd. mag.

Is Wings posted 30-06? I searched the topic and only found info from last year's event, and their web page is no help, either.

Re: Road Trip

Oklahoma has the opposite laws Texas does regarding government buildings. You cannot carry. It has been a while since I have read their laws. But that is the most glaring I have noticed.

Re: Location of signs at movie theater

When I arrived, I looked, I mean actually looked, for a 30-06 sign. The thing is not only was the sign so far away from the ticket booth and the right hand entrance, but the building even curves, adding to the inability to see it even more. Oh well.
