Re: QuikTrip hiring 'hybrid employees' who can work while armed to deter crime, keep customers safe

I wonder if the armed employees OC. There would seem to be a problem with this in Texas, given the tight grip that the security industry has on any non-LEO security. I also wonder how they are handling the liability issue. Well in the article it said they were looking for people with law enforcemen...

Re: HB 131 - Here come "Extreme Risk Protection Orders"......

This is happening in Maryland, and the police shot a man when they were sent to confiscate his guns.

We do not need that here. There is no due process.

Re: HB 49 - Kill Daylight Savings Time

Filed as HB 49. Personally, if you want daylight savings time in your life, arrange with your boss to go to work earlier... That's not possible for me, and i doubt it is possible for 90+% of the workforce. And since I live on rural property, there are always jobs waiting on me when I get home that ...

But even though the provisional runs were deemed invalid, since they have now been mixed with other runs they cannot be removed and must count.

Re: Truck broken in to, pistol stolen...I’m mad at myself

I use Parking Spot as well. In the mid 90's I would park at the airport. One night I went to get my truck only to find my tailgate stolen. I went to DFW PD and they laughed and said "we got another one stolen". I did not think it was funny. Ever since I have parked offsite. :shock: A tailgate? Seri...

Re: owb holster for 1911

I'm sure there are lots of good choices out there. After trying several I found that this holster from El Paso Saddlery is extremely comfortable. When I wear my 1911, this is my go to holster.

Re: WA: Armed citizen holds bloodied knife man at Space Needle

I am amazed that the armed good guy was able to show that much restraint. And as soon as LEO showed up he put his gun down. He was cool and composed. Not sure I would be that cool after witnessing a stabbing murder. Did you see the blood all over the BG's hands and arms? that must have been a horrib...

The best thing about Texit is that we could close the borders and keep liberal idiots from coming here.

My LTC was accepted this morning, no problem. They just typed in my name in the search box and I appeared on their screen.

Re: Early Voting

The little town where our polling place is has a population of 300. There are maybe 1,000-1,500 people total that can vote at that location. Not really sure about the number, but it's a rural area. This morning I got there at 6:30 and I was number 8 in line. When the polls opened at 7:00 there were ...
