Re: Garland Public Shooting Range Flooded

Wow... just watched that video on FB... the fence is gone, looks like the structure for the rifle range is gone. I hope they can rebuild.

Re: 16 year old daughter pocket knife/ pepper spray

There are no guarantees in life, but self-defense is absolutely not limited to being a strictly mechanical process. It's not about the mechanics of "can she use a knife successfully in a fight". It's about the whole package of the woman and how she presents, and the signals she gives off to the res...

Re: 16 year old daughter pocket knife/ pepper spray

Is your daughter a ninja or trained knife fighter? If not, the chances of it getting taken away from her and used against her are higher... They say the same things about handguns...so why bother carry anything? :roll: Well, with a handgun, a little distance is your friend. A knife is much more up ...

Re: I Want to Build A Rifle.

I’ve built ARs out of both forged and billet receivers. The billet receivers were very nice in appearance - and in one case, had additional features not found on most other receivers - but I can’t truthfully say that the billet receiver rifles were any more accurate than the forged receiver rifles....

Re: Opening day is tomorrow!

Opening day was slower for us in years past, but if I would have hit every bird I shot at, I would have had a limit. It would have taken a morning and evening hunt to get there though, where in previous years we could limit in the morning alone. I had 8 on the first day, and only 2 after the morning...

Re: Clear backpacks

I could see how a knife inside a pen could make to your classroom. All that has to happen is for someone not opening that pen and checking it. If metal detectors are a charade, why are they still being used at every courthouse and airport in America? What school with metal detectors have had a scho...

Re: Gov. Greg Abbott announced a new school safety plan and proposed changes to gun laws

How in the world can your son have the time and privacy to build a pipe bomb while living with you? Seriously? Where your parents with you 24x7 when you were a teen? A couple of hours on the internet one day, a trip to home depot on another, then a couple of hours putting them together! How do teen...

Re: Do Own A Sig 365?

And every gun you buy needs to be evaluated to make sure it performs for your intended task no matter what reputation it has. I agree, except that it is easier to feel comfortable with a proven gun than it is one that does not have a good reputation. For example, my son just bought a Glock 19 and a...
