Re: Someone push me...

No reason not to... I used the ARRL study guide, and also almost passed the General exam on the first try, but was just a couple questions short of passing. I got my license and haven't done a ton with it just because of time, but if I need to I can get on the airwaves and be completely legal. https...

Re: New LTC time

Dang, when I got mine it was a solid 50-60 days before my plastic showed up. Glad it's quicker now! Welcome to the club!

Re: ND While Carrying Appendix

I winced in pain when I watched that video just now. I've toyed with appendix carry in the past, and that solidifies my feeling of never really being comfortable with it. And I'm glad that my EDC has a manual safety, even if it is a striker fired gun. That was another gut feeling that I went with a ...

Re: Decibullz custom molded earplugs

Not to offend anyone, but I had a pair of these and they were absolute junk. I got better ear pro out of cheap orange foam in my opinion. Now I use active ear muffs + cheap orange foam plugs. I tried reforming them and decided it wasn't worth my time. Of course, if you're having better luck, rock on.

Re: Any Recourse Against Sneaky Tax Raise?

<SNIP> I wish the property tax was replaced with a consumption tax. You mean, like a sales tax? Yes. If I have to pay a tax it shouldn’t be because I own something, or because I make so much money, but because of how frivolous I get. Buy a Lamborghini, pay tax on that. Personally, I’ll drive my Che...

Re: Wow! Incredible---Ruger's Shareholder Proposal Passes

One of the organizations that backed the effort to block her, Amalgamated Bank, an institutional investor and retail bank that promotes social justice issues, had said Ms. Froman’s close ties to the N.R.A. “may inhibit objective assessment and management of the risks” that Ruger faced. This was the...

Re: How's this idea for improving Texas firearms laws?

This is important... ... if the law enforcement agency provides a gun locker where the peace officer can secure the license holder's handgun. I sincerely doubt many police stations have this lock box. And what if the entire station is posted 30.06 (for example College/Community College police statio...

Re: Campus carry and effective concealment methods for an ltc college student

I carry a shield 9 every day in an AlienGear Cloak Tuck 3.0. I just ordered a Black Arch Protos-M, so I'll see how that works out. With the AG 3.0 if I bend over, I print some, but by and large people don't notice. There is a bulge at 4:00 where I wear it, but that's unavoidable. I've personally tri...

Re: Are there plans for Forum members to meet up at the NRA meeting Friday?

Completely overwhelming experience, I wish that was here every year. Unfortunately I’m not sure I’ll be there tomorrow.

Sorry I missed y’all at noon, time got away from me in the exhibit hall!
