Re: Drones

And registration is only required if the drone is over 250 grams. The Mavic mini comes in a 249 grams. But don't you still have to comply with the airspace and altitude rules? And how do you know those if you're flying an unlicensed drone. As a pilot, I'm concerned about ignorant drone flyers causi...

Re: Drones

As a drone hobbyists and Texas LEO, no you cannot shoot down a drone. You own the property not the airspace above it. Now if someone is flying 15ft above your backyard looking around your property, call the police. If I’m flying 200ft above I assure you my camera zoom isn’t like that of a military ...

Re: Drones

They'll be useful in the coming years if you take the time to learn about them :cool: Actually... I’m very interested in learning. My next planned large purchase isn’t another gun—of which I have plenty—it’s a a drone. I’m thinking in terms of the latest Mavik Mini, which is supposed to have longer...

Re: Aggravated robbery in gun free mall

This mall is posted 06/07 at the main mall entrances only. Apparently these thugs didn’t see the sign and decided to rob this victim at gunpoint. https://www.news-journal.com/news/police/four-arrested-after-mall-patron-robbed-car-keys-taken/article_9be8b350-b26a-11ea-9ce8-b334a6db2def.html#utm_camp...

Re: AMC Theaters plans to go bankrupt

Wife and I still have free tickets to use up before the end of the year. If I have to wear a mask fine. Once then lights dim it’s coming off.

I would file suit in a heartbeat.

Kept me from bringing mine, didn’t provide me with security.
Oh there is Allied Security there armed with a cell phone and a note pad. Makes me feel safe.

Re: Atlanta: a very positive article on Rayshard Brooks

Tennessee v Garner. Terrible how the DA is grandstanding with this officer’s life. I see why he is under investigation from the state. Even worse that under Georgia law that the death penalty is a option for ALL murders. This officer did his job and his life as he knows it is over. Even if he walks ...

Re: Odessa Rifle Carry, Law Discussion

Griffis said that he, “Conferred with TABC (Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission). We discussed that and they said any part of that property that is owned or adjacent to, connected to that bar is the premises and TABC is going to be fully involved in this deal also,” he said. I’m wondering how they c...

Re: Vacationing in gun free Mexico

Been twice to Cozumel on a cruise and I felt safe. I did buy a cheap pocket knife from Walmart before we left so I would have some weapon. One I wouldn’t mind ditching if I got any attention from the local fuz.

Re: Can someone find this law?

Unfortunately the instructor that showed us the text passed away in 2014. LEOSA and PC: 46.15 allows carry but was more a blanket law covering sporting events and theme parks. After the NFL’s policy the state wrote a short text specifically mentioning theme parks and professional sporting events to ...
