Re: Early Voting

When I presented my DL and voter registration card, both in good order with my current address on them, the clerk asked me to say my address. She claimed they were trained to ask that very unnecessary question. Did that happen to anyone else or is it just a Dallas County thing where you have to tel...

Re: Grapevine mills mall gun friendly 1/1/16?

Not sure if anyone has posted an update for this or if a different thread was made, but I went to Grapevine Mills mall to pick up my girlfriend from work (was sick and severely dizzy, couldn't drive herself). According to one of the private (?) Security guards here, the entire property is private a...

Re: Medical Facilities

Not all medical facilities post. We had to go to an office we'd never been to before last week for a procedure for my wife. It's on the border of Plano and Richardson. I just assumed it would be posted, so I disarmed in the car. I drove by the main entrance, but the view was some what obstructed, so...

I am confused. Isn't it illegal to have a gun at a high school event even if you have a LTC?
Not if he left it in his car, went in to the game, left the game and retrieved the weapon. That's a legal scenario for him being armed in the parking lot.

Re: Netflix- I'm about to get fed up

It's been a while since I watched that episode but remind me what was the issue? I kinda remember rolling my eyes at the time but can't recall why - did they maybe gloss over the background check? It's not illegal to sell a gun to someone with Down's Syndrome, is it? It's been awhile but if I recal...

Re: Person hit by gunshot at Red's Indoor Range in Pflugerville has died

Suicide is such a common thing at ranges that both ranges I use won't let you rent a gun unless you've shot your own gun on a prior visit.

Suicide was the one word answer when I asked about the policy.

Re: Work carry VS off work carry

I work in education. Primary job forbids carry. Part-time job allows it. At the part time job, I bring the gun that best conceals in the clothes I am wearing that day. If it is the full-size, I bring that. If it is the pocket revolver, I bring that. Train with all of them and hopefully capacity won'...

Re: Friend with Alzheimer's

Can they let him renew and it "get lost in the mail?"

If they check the mail before he does, they can hide it in a safe location.

Depending on advancement, it may never be an issue.

Re: GA: Man in angry clown mask robs Waffle House shoots customer

That may be their voiced policy, but I have never been in a Waffle House that had any kind of signage that told me I should find somewhere else to eat.

Re: Academy 7/8-17/18: 2 revolvers, 6 SA's in .22, .380, 9MM, & .40.

I've almost pulled the trigger on that 22 revolver more times than I can count.

Primary users would be my under 13 kids.

It just seems cheap. Like worth the extra 250 for sr22 et al.

What say y'all?

Re: Media called an AR-15 a semiautomatic rifle!

I read in a book that if you have to run from an alligator do it in short bursts of diagonal lines.

They accelerate quickly and can out run most humans in a straight line up to 50 yards.

However, they don't corner very well so the diagonal lines give you better odds.

Fair Park Cotton Bowl

Thinking about heading to Fair Park for the fireworks this year. Is the posting at the Cotton Bowl legit? 30.06 says a gate is posted, but it's owned by the city so wouldn't a non collegiate football game be good to go? No way I go to Fair Park after dark unarmed especially since we will probably tr...

Re: Illinois Car Carry

My info is 2 yrs old. I was not pulled over.

If you have a Texas LTC, you may have a gun in the car.

HOWEVER,

It is legal to possess the firearm in your car as long as it is unloaded and enclosed in a container. You can have a loaded magazine “WITH” the gun, but it must not be “IN” the gun.
