A parent should never have to outlive their children. I’m so sorry for their loss.

Re: Sketch borders for Dremel with pencil?

Dremel has a really cool little tool that you could use to do etching and such....I've looked at it a couple of times, it's not a lot, but I just haven't been able to splurge for it quite yet. I have a dremel 200 with a flex shaft, and I got the etching bit set which has multiple sizes of engraving...

Re: Sketch borders for Dremel with pencil?

I’ve used a pencil many times tracing boarders for stippling polymer “tools”. Works well. I also advise that you get some painters tape and tape the boarders if you can. The straight edges of the tape will help you make sure that you stay in the area your trying to work. It can also save you from m...

Ordinary pencil "lead" is graphite. It should be fine to use. Not sure about that Dremel though ;)
That all depends on the hands of the user -- I hope mine can be trained to be steady enough! Lots of practice is due.

Sketch borders for Dremel with pencil?

If one were to want to customize their polymer handgun, is it safe to use a standard #2 pencil to draw out borders to be etched with a dremel? I didn't think that pencil could cause problems with the frame or internals, especially when cleaning before reassembly, but I thought I should ask around be...

Re: HB 38 - end of 80% builds in TX

Those of us with 80% builds can always engrave them with the required information. Nobody would have any knowledge of the firearm and we would then be able to sell them if we decide we no longer have a need for that firearm. I still hav 5 that are not built out. I only have 1 that is not 80%. I can...

Re: HB 38 - end of 80% builds in TX

Not only no carve out for pre existing, this creates a defacto registry in TX: Sec. 411.225. MARKING REQUIREMENTS FOR MANUFACTURING OR ASSEMBLING FIREARMS.

Voted for SB11 and HB910 in 2015. I’ve seen him in the chamber performing as speaker if I recall correctly, so he’s not new to the rodeo.

Re: Interesting bill regarding guns made in Texas

I'm not quite sure how I feel about this. What if someone in Texas uses the new plastic printers to make their own unregistered gun? People are making “unregistered” guns in Texas every single day in the form of 80% lowers/frames. On top of that, there is no registry in Texas anyway. The only use f...
