Who's Next?

A year or two ago we had all the discussion regarding why the IRS, the Social Security Administration, HUD, and many other Federal agencies needed to have their own internal police agencies, complete with tactical equipment, various rifles and other weapons and literally millions of rounds of ammuni...

Re: M&P shield carriers...

So how does either the Apex or the S&W P/C trigger compare to a stock 1911 trigger? I've been EDC'ing an officer's size 1911 for a number of years. I like it, but I'm considering adding a striker-fired platform to the mix "just because." I'm considering a S&W M&P 2.0 shield (or maybe compact) becaus...

Re: HB 2949 - Expedited Special License for Certain At-Risk Persons

I just skimmed the bill, but I didn't see where the person would be exempt from any of the required steps. It looks to me like they just get put at the front of the line. It also pretty much spells out what it takes to get designated at risk. So it makes me wonder, who else actually read the bill b...

Re: Letters From The Past- Col. Fannin to Gov. J.W. Robinson

Thanks for the feedback, Joe. Tam, we stayed in Victoria. Plenty of chain and local lodging there. Victoria is about a 1/2 hour drive to Goliad. The Fannin battle ground is about half way between the two. I also recall seeing one or two motels in both Gonzales and Goliad, but Victoria worked well fo...

Re: Letters From The Past- Col. Fannin to Gov. J.W. Robinson

Thanks for that, Joe. I have a particular interest in Texas history from that period, and your post brought back some good memories. Although unfortunately, my little pea brain doesn't seem to be able to hold on to much of that history at any given time. :lol: I suppose part of my interest in that p...

Don't Be Stupid

... it can upset people and could get somebody hurt. Here' an example. On a road trip across several states to see family over Christmas, we stopped at a small convenience store for gas and snacks. My wife and I both went into the store after I pumped the gas. Just as we were placing our goodies on ...

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

It just occurred to me...

Will "Beto" even be on the ballot? I mean, that's just a nickname, right? Won't a ballot be required to have his legal name on it?

How many people who intend to vote for "Beto" will go into the voting booth and say: "Who's this O'Rourke guy? And where's Beto?!"

:lol:

Re: Carry in Texas polling place? it depends

I'll admit, I'm conflicted about this. Living in a rural area, with little or no or delayed police response, I understand the situation that brought about this action. So I'm glad that SOMEone MAY be able to carry a firearm in a polling place in case the need ever arises. That's the good news. On th...
