Re: Gab.com is building an alternative to PayPal

Please keep us updated. Side note, I sell a lot of gun accessories and many customers use PayPal to buy. It tickles me every time.

Re: Time to modernize qual - allow Red Dots

Tex1961, Yep, been there and seen that. Had more than one that tried to load the rounds in the mag backwards, one that upon the command "fire" would close her eyes and turn her head sideways (she lasted two rounds before I removed her). We keep telling them that this is NOT a learn to sho...

Re: Time to modernize qual - allow Red Dots

Well, they have already reduced the caliber requirement for the LTC so why not allow any firearm that could be carried. With the ammo shortage, i am seeing more and more students shoot the "Demonstration of Proficiency" with a .22. So far, have not had a single student shooting a .22 NOT ...

Re: Time to modernize qual - allow Red Dots

My opinion is no... at least not yet. Too many students barely have enough skills as it is to pass the quals.. I think anyone who wants to handle a firearm should start out with the basic fundamentals of sight management first. But I will allow a caveat.. Allow an exception for those that are optica...

Re: Desoto Police are doing a gun buy this Saturday

To all you enterprising folks out there... I just heard on the News that Desoto Police are doing a gun buyback (I know, they never owned them). I think they are giving a $100.00 Walmart gift card.. Some of you who live in the area should go by and see if you can pick up some good deals... It's goin...

Re: Tips on carrying in a swim suit???

Both of those items you guys linked to seems to be a pretty good choice. Also the tactical fanny packs are pretty popular.

Re: TX: Humble woman charged with murder after claiming self defense after a homeless woman aggressively approached

Curious as to how many of these situations we will see after 9/1. And yeah yeah. Before anyone gets their shorts in a wad I’m very familiar with the stats and history of states that have implemented unlicensed carry. I’m fully aware it’s not going to be the wild Wild West out there. But I’m not goin...

Thanks

Re: Katy area instructor qualification

I’m confused. Is Florence this year for class and range or can you do range quals and send in the paperwork first. I don’t have to renew this year but was just curious.

Re: Any links debunking "blood in the streets" post CC??

My Dad (who is normally not one to confront anti 2A types) called today and asked for some reputable links to studies or stats that show Constitutional carry won't turn to blood in the streets. Apparently a few people at his Church were spouting off about it and he wants some factual and reputable ...
