Yikes Another Disease-Carrying Bug!

My exterminator came by to spray my house today. He wanted to show me a bug he found on my back porch. Had seen these bugs around but never gave them much though---turns out they can carry a nasty disease---the Assassin or Kissing Bug: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triatominae So I can now add these...

Re: ND While Carrying Appendix

Would be good to know the real reason the gun discharged when it did. His hands were nowhere near the trigger/trigger guard when the discharge happened as far as I can see. Another reason why I "Israeli carry." I bet the poor guy thought he was handling the gun safely then BOOM!. Must have been terr...

Re: FBI Agent has ND

We do not need an FBI agent that shows this kind of poor judgment.

Fire him, or, assign him to the FBI field office in Anchorage, Alaska where he can count paperclips.

Re: AP considers 7-2 a narrow decision

I have a different spin on all of this. Sadly, the court would rather write on issues surrounding the first amendment than issues surrounding the second amendment. Recall their failure to grant cert. on several firearms cases the last couple of years. Priorities....priorities....priorities...

Re: TX: San Antonio Road Rage Incident

A few things come to mind. First, the District Attorney could submit the entire matter to the local grand jury and let them decide on the bill or no-bill of the two parties. Secondly, wonder if it is possible for the police chief to ask for an independent investigation by the the Texas Department of...

Re: Wreck kills local church goers

Wonder why the months-long delay? Did the prosecutor make a recommendation on punishment as part of the plea or was it a "no-rec" deal? Would not think it would take that long to get a pre-sentence investigation for the Judge. Is he out on bond or is he in jail? Serving sentences consecutively will ...

Re: Ruger lcp

Learned something new about my Ruger LCP handgun. When I dry-fire, hold the trigger down, and rack the slide I can hear two audible clicks when I slowly let my finger off the trigger. It will not fire on the first click--only the second click. This is unlike my Glock and Shield which fire after the ...

Re: TX: San Antonio Road Rage Incident

There is much we still do not know about this story. However, as a general rule, it is best in "road rage" situations to NOT exit your vehicle and escalate the situation. No way I would have stopped and exited my vehicle from what I know about this incident which admittedly is not much. I assume you...

Re: Gov. Greg Abbott announced a new school safety plan and proposed changes to gun laws

Governor Abbott has no control over the Federal Gun Free School Zone Act as that is federal and he is only a state governor. However, he can certainly push our state legislature to make changes in our state laws pertaining to guns in schools. The interplay between state and federal law can get very ...

Re: Ruger lcp

Check into the Ruger LCP2--it is supposed to fix some of the shortcomings of the LCP. I have an LCP--it is a light-weight and easily concealable handgun. However, mine has a "long" trigger pull which I do not like. It was my first carry-gun. I have since upgraded to a Glock 26 which I far prefer for...

Re: In n Out Burger VS Whataburger

Never had an In n Out Burger so cannot comment on that. My favorite Whataburger is the green chile double with cheese--hard to beat. Best local burger place in Austin, Texas is Dan's Burgers. When I was in high school in the stone age Burger King offered "flame-kissed" burgers---they were some of th...

New Video Game Active Shooter?

Not sure where to discuss this--off-topic...guns and politics...Books and Videos...or some other topic. Anyway, heard a company is coming out with a new video game--Active Shooter--you can play the part of the school shooter or SWAT... I think it is really sick but probably legal. What do you guys t...

Re: 30.06 Ruling Letters

Too bad non-parties cannot access and read on-line the underlying court records. If memory serves the District and County Clerks' offices opposed open access in the last legislative session because of their anticipated loss of $$$ for charging the public for hard copies of those records.
