Re: Are our glory days behind us? Yes, I think they are.

I'm not going to throw in the towel. Is communism and it's variants going to do us in? Not on my watch. You want what? Get a job, earn it. Rather bemoan your fate and wallow in wanting what you've not earned? Want to fight me about it? I'm ready. Are you? Thank you, Abraham. Because a lot of these ...

Re: concealed definition

You know what I find amusing? Being on topic and getting jumped on about it by folks discussing taping a flip-flop to a belt and using it for a holster. That's really rich. If I actually see someone do that, I'll be sure to let y'all know right away.

Re: concealed definition

Well, I'm glad I stumbled across this post. It somehow escaped me that the official definition of concealed had been removed from the Penal Code. However, 30.06 applies to concealed carry. So, without an official definition of concealed, what is the criteria for arrest if one carries past the sign?...

Re: 2nd Amendment Question

The OP mentioned 2A-rights organizations, but seemed to dismiss them to some degree. The old adage is that there is "strength in numbers", and that is the whole point of joining organizations such as the NRA, SAF, GOA, etc. Together, our voices are much louder than any of us standing alone (certain ...

Re: Yikes Another Disease-Carrying Bug!

Assassin bugs...yep, spent my teen years in the South Texas Brush Country, they were a serious nuisance. Their bite leaves a large welt that itches like crazy. And, despite their size, they can walk on you while you sleep and you'll never feel them. In addition, their shape allows them to fit throug...

Re: 10 facts abut guns

Barely into the thing when I come across this: And like other mass produced commodities, the guns had to be sold to the public; where markets for them did not already exist, they had to be created (Haag, 2016) Sorry, but supply doesn't create demand; demand creates a need for supply. Simply economic...

Re: Oregon Initiative to Ban Assault Weapons

IF it were to pass, the Oregon Sheriff's Association (or whatever it is called) needs to come together and issue a statement saying they will not waste any resources enforcing it. Colorado passed their "hi-cap" magazine ban, and most of the Colorado sheriffs said they wouldn't enforce it. NY State p...

Re: Ruger SR22

I am not real familiar with the SR22, but am familiar with other 22s and some of Rivers other products. RI get coats their internals with a heavy dose of clear protective goop. If you don't clean it out thoroughly it will cause symptoms such as you've described clean out the extracted ejected and e...

Ruger SR22

I recently purchased a Ruger SR22 pistol. I did some research, reading reviews and watching videos by several internet gun personalities before settling on that particular firearm. I'm glad I went with it. First outing with it, I put about 330 rounds through it, across 6 different brands of ammuniti...

Re: Former chief of the Texas Rangers thinks 2A is about hunting

Fudd - I don't care who he used to be. The worst kind, too. "None for thee, all for me." Yes, indeed, those types of folks are elitists...in their minds, they deserve nicer things and better lives, than the general "peasant" rabble. Odd how it's always those types pushing socialistic solutions on t...

Re: Former chief of the Texas Rangers thinks 2A is about hunting

I have nothing but respect for the Texas Rangers. Since I was a kid, I always considered them to be the closest thing to "uncorruptables" in our state. But, that man's rant really sticks in my craw. Pointing out a few extreme events to paint millions of owners of semi-automatic rifle owners as someh...

Re: Texas Carry Executive Director sued for filing signage complaint against Waller County

So, I really don't understand why Waller County (or any other that posts similar stuff) wants to keep out LTCers. Do they really think that LTCers, who we all know have the lowest criminal incidence rate of any group in this state, are going to go to a courthouse armed with the sole intent of foul p...

Re: 10 Round Mag States

Be aware that some of the 10 round States also have other onerous restrictions. NJ, for example, will arrest you for having hollow point ammo. No non-law enforcement people are allowed to possess hollow points in that State So even if you were following the FOPA rules, you could still be arrested. ...

Re: Just received a polling phone call

IMHO, a lot of (most?) polling is rather useless for several reasons. Some percentage of it is DESIGNED to get a particular group of responses via calling in areas heavily favored by one party or the other (but mostly one in particular), or by wording the questions in such a manner as to elicit cert...
