Re: Serial Killers

That reminds me of a time in 1974. I worked at a large business at the time, and had a company radio installed in my car (pre cell phone). It was a typical Motorola business radio of the era. The control head looked a lot like the control head of the radios used by the Houston police back then. One ...

Re: RV, camper van, site trailer, and work truck carry considerations

I saw a great sign on the back door of a house in the Houston Museum District. It was a masterful piece of misdirection. It said words to the effect "Dr. Johnson's Biochemical Lab only takes delivery of poisonous reptiles between 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM". Not a place the average thief will want to brea...

Re: Annoying Trends.

I'm so sick of those drug commercials! They are constant on every channel. Sure I'll risk death to have clear skin. Why not? :eek6 If you're sick of them, imagine how our doctors feel about them when patients come in and demand the new drug they just saw on TV> I used to to wind up my GP by asking ...

Re: Blindsided

Frightening situations can happen most anywhere. I pulled into the local library parking lot a couple years back, in broad daylight. As I was getting out, a large muscular young man who looked like he stepped out of a thug life movie came running over to my car. There was no time to put a hand up or...

Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

My old book said part of 10 meters is ok for CW AND VOICE for Tech Plus Code if a Tech takes the 5 wpm code test along with the Tech test, but someone told me that's only for general class now ... I need a new book I just had a look and there is still space reserved on the 10 meter band for Technic...

Re: Deal alert Remington range bucket 9mm 11.4 cents a round after rebate

The Online page shows 9mm available again. I just ordered three buckets online. Free shipping beats going out into Black Friday shopping crowds.

On a side note, what does one have to do to attend the convention?
At the one in Houston a while back, I just showed up. I didn't have my NRA membership card (haven't seen it in years). They were able to look it up on a computer and let me in.

Deadpool rides the streets of downtown Houston, taking advantage of open carry and the new knife law.

Gerber Guardian I, clipped inside the boot. I bought it and a Guardian II decades ago and now I can carry it legally. I'd carry the Guardian II, but it doesn't have a boot clip sheath.

Speeding is much more dangerous. Speeding is a black and white violation of the law It might surprise you to hear that speeding in Texas is not at all a black and white violation of the law. Texas speed limits are set as what is a "reasonable and proper" speed. The posted limits are an indication o...
