Movie - Ford vs Ferrari

Short version. - :thumbs2: If you want to see a very good movie for adults -- and by this I mean not about cartoon characters -- you should seek out Ford versus Ferrari. It's an entertaining and surprisingly well made movie. I have enjoyed a superhero movie or three, but this is the best film I've s...

Re: LTC License Validation Website

It's working as advertised. A go/no-go check.

However, I don't see it being used much if at all by FFLs. Particularly when they read the line, 'not legally required.' At least not until ATF decides to draft a new administrative rule.

Re: Citizenship interrogation...

Apparently I'll hear within 2 weeks where/when the swearing-in ceremony will be :patriot: :txflag: Just FYI, if you get the invitation to the ceremony, the time on the invitation is NOT the time of the ceremony. Since they usually invite thousands and thousands of people, they send out invitations ...

Re: Pictures Of Your Daily Carry

My current EDC setup. Switched from my beloved M&P9 Pro over to this hybrid Sig 320 Carry/Compact setup. Really digging the X Compact grip module.

Re: Class lll manufacturers

Look at it from the manufacturing side, not the purchase side. It's a closed loop though. They're not registrable and the potential customer pool is tiny to non-existent. Rentals can work if you have a good range setup. T&E is fun for a little bit, but your ammo budget suffers. :mrgreen: Well techn...

Re: Class lll manufacturers

You don't need a law letter if you're manufacturing the item, that's for acquiring a post-sample (unless it's a no-letter item). You are responsible for every bullet in your gun. Could you? Sure. Would anybody you care about what to be near you when you used it? No. Who wants to spend all that time ...

Swift recovery for the deputy. Ears and tail to the TDCJ officers.

Re: Road rage

Many years ago I was driving into the outskirts of Kansas City on I-70 from the Missouri side. Somewhere along there I-70 opens from 2-lane to 3 or 4 lanes. Some jackwagon merged onto the freeway and proceeded to cross two-and-a-half lanes in one move without ever seeing me. I honked and maneuvered ...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Could be random, could be bad luck, could be the people he procured his herb from were less than stellar citizens . And the early verdict, "Killed in a drug deal." In this exchange, looks like he was the seller and not the buyer. https://www.wfaa.com/article/news/special-reports/botham-jean/joshua-...

Re: Instructor Renewal

Third time was the charm. Called Tuesday, Oct 1, had correct SSC certificate in hand here in Houston on Oct 3. So, hats off to RSD for what ultimately was a speed resolution. Sort of. ;-)

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Few female officers are going to win a stand-up fight with a male 'suspect'. That may lead to a shoot first situations. Sentencing should be interesting. Generally NO officer wants a 'stand up fight'' with a suspect....but in my opinion Her biggest mistake (there were several) was entering the apar...
