There is a reason armies using muzzleloaders lined up abreast of each other and fired in volley! The inherent inaccuracies of their firearm! Smooth bores were/are horribly inaccurate. Smooth bores with minnies proved even worse, though used because mass was increased by the conical. Ergo, rifled bo...

Got gas there at about 9am yesterday.
Never to need/get my gas in seedy areas has been my rule - buy local ahead of time and daylight. As you know, this ain't a seedy place and was bright daylight to boot. I'll upgrade to show open when pumping no matter where.

Stay Alert Pumping Gas

This hit our little town yesterday afternoon. It was described by witnesses as an initial grab for the victim's wallet.

Re: Lawn care suggestions...

I don't like St. Augustine because of the weaknesses to water, grubs, and fungus. I much prefer Centipede grass. When thick, it will choke out every weed, even bahia and nut grass. It requires less water and less fertilize than any other grass, and it grows into a thicker, deeper mat than any other...

Re: Lawn care suggestions...

If it's overall that it has never thrived like it should, not really responding to fertilizer like is should, it's the soil. Test it, professionally, before spending money on anything other than mole treatment. Usually, developed sites remove, replace, or lack organic matter/organic activity that na...

Though nothing can protect against a direct strike, a whole home surge protection put in you main box is good insurance on down the line strikes.

Re: Looking for a financial planner

Check out Scott Burns, financial columnist for the Dallas Morning News, and his Couch Potato Portfolio. Makes a lot of sense and you don't have to pay an agent who only works for commissions. If you do decide to go to a financial adviser, make sure it someone you pay to look after your interest (th...

Re: Anyone ever see a cat like this?

Yes, such was the Texas black panther, once. My dad was a state park volunteer in Brazos where he and a few others over the years swore they saw what looked like a black panther. Many sightings were reported across the state saying same. TPW said folks were seeing some other animal. Years later, the...

Re: How to change DL Number on CHL

This must be done by mail, you’ll need to mail in a LTC-70 form & check for $25 payable to “Texas DPS”. Include a photocopy of the new DL front & back. I don’t see any of those 7 boxes in the reason for change/ update as fitting the situation that the OP mentioned regarding DL change. I think the f...

Re: Texas "10 acre" rule for discharging a firearm outside of city limits?

I've shot it in my back yard a few times now, it's not nearly as loud as the CCI Quiet's I tested (which aren't really quiet at all imo), it won't bother anyone. Raccoon came back again last night and defeated the defenses I put up to protect my outside animal feeder. Working on obtaining a trap no...
