Re: Insurance companies

I have, and recommend getting, glass coverage. My deductable on a new windshield or repair is practically $0. In 5 years of owning a Jeep I have had more rock chips repaired on it than everything else over the rest of my life.

Re: NY: 20 die in horrific limo involved car accident at rural country store

We need a law to ban these high capacity assault auto(matic)-mobiles. No one needs a car capable of killing 20 people at a time.

Re: Cody Wilson charged in sexual assault of minor

Solicitation of a prostitute is a crime just as sex with a minor(16) is a crime for an adult(30?). If this guy is guilty of one or both of these crimes then he needs to be punished. With that out of the way this story just isn't passing the sniff test. Consider that at this point it is a very conven...

Re: Words to engrave

When I had a rifle engraved, all I could find was laser engraving. I hear that, finding a good engraver is hard, fortunately I have a friend. Bobby Tyler of Tyler Gun works (on the cover of the current Brownells catalog) has access to multiple engravers and he can refinish the part(s) afterwards. O...

Re: Words to engrave

I know you mentioned laser engraving, however have you considered having it actually engraved into the metal using more traditional methods? I know of at least one shop here in Texas that uses several very skilled engravers and can refinish the slide afterwards.

Re: Do not shoot truck rustlers

Based on the story, the 'victims' previous charges, and such I wonder if a claim of self defense or defense of property can be made as it looks like he may have been committing a criminal act himself (solicitation of a prostitute).

Re: Thoughts on open carry

Are there documented incidents in Houston where open carrying citizens have been targeted by bad guys during robbery? Or is multiple bad guys robbing a business the new M.O. there? Everyone's situation is different. If its the criminals in Houston have gotten better at recognizing that citizens may...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

I think a lot of people are afraid to show support, or even state their position when asked by pollsters, due to fear of ANTIFA and their like. I know three people who say they are supporting Beto to people they do not know but are very open of their support for Cruz when in private and they will te...

I was thinking about something Charles said in my 'Someone push me' thread and each day it just seems like a better and better idea. How about we try to plan/schedule a net for Forum members?

Re: Device Lets Smartphone Users Scan For Concealed Firearms

If you could lead people to believe that with a small tweak this could detect illegal immigrants it would be banned in gun-phobic states in a heartbeat. New market niche: jammers. Considering the fact that it has facial recognition software you could tie it into the federal 'Real ID' database and i...

Re: Growing Demand for CHL On The Rise

I suspect the main factor in the statistics for police committing more crimes than license holders is due to a number of factors. First is the fact that there are far fewer officers, so each time an officer is convicted of a crime it has far more weight from a statistical point of view. All other f...

Re: Growing Demand for CHL On The Rise

permit holders are convicted of misdemeanor and felonies at one-sixth the rate at which police officers are convicted." You hear a statistic like this pretty often, and I don't doubt that it's true. But today, it occurred to me to wonder, why it is the case? It's easy to understand that permit hold...
