Re: I did it again, second time this week...

I did it again, second time this week...

For the second time this week, I left the house without my EDC. A couple of times a week my wife gets up early with me and we have mini "coffee date" before I leave for work. Almost every time we do this I leave something behind, rings, watch, phone, etc... I just get distracted in my morning routin...

Re: Thoughts On Our 2nd Amendment And The Original Intent

There is no need to guess what the second amendment means. Most of our founding fathers were prolific writers and they wrote a great deal about it. It doesn't take much research to learn where they were coming from and what they meant. Do yourself a favor... Get and read a copy of The Second Amendm...

Re: M&P 15/22s Banned At Appleseed Events After Out Of Battery and “Run Away” Discharges

I'm a big fan of Appleseed. In fact, I just participated in an event this past weekend. It was the second Appleseed for my oldest son and the first for my middle son. If you haven't done an Appleseed I highly recommend it. The range this past weekend was .22lr only. In other events I've seen ARs and...

Re: Conceal carry at work

This isn't necessarily a legal notice question, it's an employment question. There is no 30.06, so you can carry...but if you do you are being insubordinate in going against the verbal instructions of your supervisor. You're not trespassing, but you could be fired. If there is no signage, why did yo...

Thoughts On Our 2nd Amendment And The Original Intent

I’ve pondered the second amendment for many years. Even as a child I can remember sitting in class trying to dissect this in hopes of understanding it more completely. Something that recently caught my attention was the fact that in the original hand written document, as passed by Congress and prese...

Re: AR uppers buy or build

While I've had an AR for years I've just recently built an AR pistol and I'm in the process of doing my first 80% build. From what I can tell, if you're happy with the barrel, the other expensive item is the hand guard. When looking at pre-built vs. build your own uppers, I usually subtract the cost...

I've met and talked at length with Michele Byington, she is smart and knows her stuff. This is an interesting view on this matter.

Re: World’s Greatest Gun Salesman Sets Incredible New Record!

Something else to consider is someone buying more than one gun.

I know that I received two lowers last week through my FFL and have my LTC.

Re: Almost pulled my gun at HEB.

After a late night with not much sleep, I got up at my usual 5AM for work and stopped at my local Starbucks for a triple shot latte. I parked my silver Honda Pilot, walked inside, got my coffee, and walked back out. When I got in my car I had an instant panic attack "What is going on, I don't have l...

Re: Solution to TSA Long Lines

Personal solution- get Precheck as others have stated. Mine was granted at no charge through AA's frequent traveler program. Same here This only shows how silly the system is. No vetting, no interview, nothing. We are special snowflakes. TSA Pre has become a situation where everyone has it. I also ...

Re: Eagle Mountain Lake Park and TRWD banning carry with CHL

Something very, VERY, important that we all need to remember is proper notice. A sign stating no firearms DOES NOT mean you may not concealed carry or even open carry. If I see a sign like this, I don't even give it any thought. I go along and mind my own business. Seeing a sign like this and asking...

Re: WTB - Kel Tec Sub 2000

Just FYI, Academy off Brodie in Sunset Valley (Austin) has a Sub 2000 on the rack priced at $499. I don't want one but I almost bought it just because it's kind of like seeing a unicorn.

TSA Incident (or non-incident). What would you do?

Mods, if there is a better section for this I do apologize. A friend of mine on a recent business trip failed to properly sanitize his usual carry on (he's a frequent traveler). He made it through security and settled in for the next hour to wait for his flight. As he reached into his bag to retriev...

Re: Hit a deer

True story...there are a lot of deer in our neighborhood (South of Austin outside city limits in Travis County). Deputies normally patrol our area on a regular basis. A deer had been hit by a car and was on the side of the road, we could tell it had just been hit and was writhing in pain. Just then ...
