Re: Carry pistol failure

I feel your pain. I was showing a friend my EDC at the range after I had fired some rounds. I handed him the pistol and on his first shot, the round failed to eject. Turned out the extractor tang picked that exact time to break off, rendering the pistol single shot. Just glad it didn't happen when I...

Re: Kobe Bryant and Daughter Killed in Helicopter Crash

Helicopter was granted an exception to fly that day. Was the risk really worth it? Technically not true. The helo asked for Special VFR. This is not an exception to flight rules, it is an established procedure. Helos are granted a lot of latitude for flying in marginal conditions because they are h...

Case at Texas A&M.

Words not allowed.
A&M student tests came back negative. Still waiting to hear on tests of the Baylor student.

Re: When America understood warship building

You can add Halsey to the list. He foresaw the power of the aircraft carrier and promoted them over BBs. He even went so far as to get himself sent to flight training as a Navy Captain to learn about aircraft and their operations.

Re: Weird electrical issues at my home!

Check all breakers? Outlets are sometimes on different breakers than lights. Also, I've lost TVs and other electronics to lightning - now there's weird electricity.

Re: Looking for a financial planner

Check out Scott Burns, financial columnist for the Dallas Morning News, and his Couch Potato Portfolio. Makes a lot of sense and you don't have to pay an agent who only works for commissions. If you do decide to go to a financial adviser, make sure it someone you pay to look after your interest (the...

Re: Any pilots in here?

Camp/Fort Wolters in Mineral Wells was one of the Army's largest helicopter pilot training bases. For a great read about what those guys went through, I recommend "Chickenhawk".

Re: Keep an eye on Virginia

There is a TFR posted effective 0700-1900 local (Temporary Flight Restriction). I suspect it is to keep out any drones.

Re: Fort Worth's dollar store rules are Bloomberg nanny style!

"Food deserts" are a real problem. Poorer neighborhoods do not have access to HEBs, or other regular grocery stores, because they are usually miles away with no mass transit available, and many of those folks do not have their own transportation. So, they have to resort to fast food, convenience sto...

Re: OWB Retension preference

Just my way, but I agree with some sort or retention. I OC a PX4 Storm (.45) in a Berreta paddle holster. It has a retention feature that you must twist the grip clockwise (RH carry) to unlock the retention. If you were to try and grab my pistol, you would have to twist CCW and it would remain locke...

Re: Are Ham radios becoming like guns in CA?

This sounds more like a money grab than a restriction of service. A lot of repeaters are on private property anyway, so would be unaffected by this rule (most in my area are). Some brain dead politician heard that somebody was using the roof (and probably electricity) for free and saw a way to extra...

So, what bothered me is that it was obviously put in as a statement. :roll:
Of course - but seems to me it's a quick 'n' simple way to shut the SJWs up.
Abrams confirmed this in an interview.

Mandalorian is the best thing on TV right now, but I’m a Starwars fan.
