Re: Report expired paper tags

I love the vehicles where you can see the months, or years, worth of tape residue from every time they secure a new version of their homemade tag. I make every effort to avoid those vehicles in traffic. Paper plates and crime go hand in hand. Supposedly the state was going to overhaul the paper plat...

Re: So you want to buy a firearm during a pandemic

From ground level, can confirm the crazy has not abated. Actually busier now than during peak covid because I started teaching classes again which I'm doing on my one day off (brilliant!). Inventory at distributors right now is slim to none. Things started to recover from quarantine and then wham - ...

Re: Interested in an AR-10 style rifle in .308. Help me decide?

Thanks for the feedback! So, I settled on the thought of getting DPMS given the feedback here and what I have heard from others, but was surprised that there were only a few stores I could find that were selling exactly what I wanted. Then, I found this: https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/is-remingt...

Re: Instructor range fee for Online students

I charge $65 for the online student quals and $80 for my regular students. I cover the range fee. I run them with my regular students. I don't mind doing the online folks, but they always have so many questions. Kind of feel bad for them.

Re: Opinion on gunsmith situation

If the optic is moving, that is not acceptable. Hopefully you can come to an accommodation.

My advice to customers, when seeking slide work, is to ask if the shop has ever done their model of firearm before. You don't want to be somebody's test run.

Re: Texas: Man pulls gun on another apparently on his property and is arrested.

Pulling the gun when there's no justification for force, and throwing that shot at the departing vehicle? No immediate threat, no imminent harm, wildly unreasonable, idiot w/ a gun = good arrest.

And it can be problematic with the jury if you bag and tag the bad guy, but don't call for a pickup.

Re: Sig Sauer Germany - bankrupt

Sig Germany has also been in hot water with the German government in recent years over arms sales to Columbia and (supposedly) Iran. Sadly the Sig Germany Master Shop will go by the wayside with this. Some excellent P210 and other finely tuned pistols will no longer be available. That said the Swis...

Re: Sig Sauer Germany - bankrupt

US Sig can't hire enough people and needs more factory space. If you know anybody who wants to move to NH for work, they're hiring. Demand for everything they make is staggering, guns, optics, ammo. Number thrown my way this week by somebody who would know, they sold 2 million rounds of ammo in Marc...

Re: Replacing Lost Certificates

I text students PDFs of their LTC-100. Use Office Lens (free) to grab a photo and convert to PDF. If your cell phone camera takes good quality shots it works just fine.

No charge. It happens very infrequently.

Re: RDS v. Iron Sights: Not just for old blind guys

Thanks for the feed back ScottB. I've had the Sig p320 compact basic model for about a year and its been a great pistol. More accurate than i can be. So far no malfunctions after 500 rounds. Its been my EDC ever since. Do you have any info on the beretta 92xcompact? Been looking into that to purcha...

Re: RDS v. Iron Sights: Not just for old blind guys

Have you gotten any feed back on how the LEO'S like the P320's? Very popular. It's basically a binary choice these days, either Glock or Sig P320 and I see a lot of Glock to Sig converts. Both are great platforms so the officers are well served by whichever route they choose. In this part of Texas,...
