Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

Sweet. I'll see everyone tomorrow. I may or may not be on time, depending on how early I can get up.

Do we have some range time planned for tomorrow after breakfast? If so, how's the range? I'm trying to determine if I should bring a long gun or two with me.

Re: Aguila Minishells in Shockwave?

I use it exclusively in the Shockwave. Full 12 gauges are a bit tough to handle with the Shockwave. With the mini shells, you're basically getting 20 gauge performance and power, but with far more rounds. It's an excellent compromise. If you are worried bout the lack of performance in a minishell be...

Re: I am not going to buy a gun today!

Update to the story, Was handed 460 cash, turned around and ordered a M&P 2.0 Compact. I really wanted to keep the 92FS. At least its still in the family if I ever wanted to borrow it. BTW Gun.Deals.com has a compare model button that lets you see most of the online prices. Ordered it through a sto...

Re: Just got my CHL and went out for the first time!

Congratulations! :thewave

You'll be surprised how little people notice others carrying. For me personally, far more people have pointed out my flashlight mistaking it for a firearm than people have actually pointed out my firearm.

Re: I am not going to buy a gun today!

The Beretta 92 series is an amazing gun. Some people think of them as unreliable hunks of metal, but they are actually very well made guns with a very sleek, Italian design. I remember seeing a used M9 at a local pawn shop for $400 as well. It didn't look like it had any more than 1000 rounds throug...

Re: SB 741 - HOA Regulation of Firearms and Ammunition

I don't think people shooting on property is really going too big of an issue. I unfortunately live in a subdivision too on a sub-acre lot as many of y'all do. I'm sure there's a provision in there that disallows firing of weapons, but that's irrelevant. City code here disallows the discharge of fir...

Re: SB 741 - HOA Regulation of Firearms and Ammunition

This bill is very good news. I can't stand HOAs. I propose we introduce a new bill that eliminates HOAs and leave blight enforcement to the city. But that's just me.

Dang it. You beat me to it. I guess there's no more monorail for California. That's actually good news.

southernscope, I'm looking forward to seeing you next go round. If you for whatever reason can't spot us, just head toward the ice machine. Don't worry, the machine is only loud when SIA is talking.

California... No wait. They'll charge 10,000 kinds of taxes to make it unaffordable. Never mind.

Re: Relocating From CA--->Texas Soon

Thanks all for your prompt and clear responses. I’ll probably just use my Utah and AZ CCW until I get my Texas LTC. I can’t wait to get there. Coming from the East Bay Area in Northern California Um... Berkeley??? I'm not sure you'd survive 6 months if you live there. I was imprisoned in the South ...

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

SIA, you may start here: http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?ctid=2583. What kind of radio is it?

Note that some local stations are starting to upgrade their radio equipment with AES encryption using rotating keys. This is essentially going to kill off civilian access to their radio chatter.
