Re: Who's running a dot on their pistol?

I have a 3.5 MOA RMR on my Walther PPQ Q4 Tac, which I carry occasionally but may begin carrying regularly. There is a learning curve, but there are some definite advantages. I've managed to avoid "chasing the dot," but I think that is just a function of different people having different training ba...

Re: Everytown Files Lawsuit Over Texas 30.06/30.07 signs for being "burdensome"

"Gaming the system." If a premises owner wants to legally exclude firearms, the instructions for doing so are right in the statute and unambiguous. Compliant signs are readily available. If the premises owner posts a non-compliant sign, then I don't think it is unreasonable to assume that the owner ...

Re: Protest / Riot Intel Source?

If you don't have the time to commit to monitoring multiple groups to figure out when they might gather then you'll probably never know ahead of time. They take their own video and either live-stream or post it later. My driving is pretty rural. The advice I gave to my college-age children; plan yo...

Re: 2016: Deplorables 2020: Enemies of the state

Those of us who are not in lockstep with the Socialist Democrat Party are being called names again. In 2016 Candidate Clinton called us deplorables. In 2020 Speaker of the House Pelosi declares us enemies of the state. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/elliebufkin/2020/08/25/disgusting-lawmakers-react-...

Protest / Riot Intel Source?

There's been a lot of discussion about self-defense in a protest or riot, and that has become all the more pertinent in the last couple weeks. Of course, the best strategy is to avoid them entirely. I drive with my 1-year-old son in downtown Houston on an almost daily basis, and getting stuck with h...

Re: Getting Started Reloading with Limited Space

I reload those exact same calibers (plus 38/357). I also have limited space, but was able to build a small bench and put it in my gun closet. Before that, I rigged up a mount by bolting the press to a 2x6 that I could mount with bolts and blocks to a folding work bench, and that worked reasonably we...

Re: Deadly force against blinding lasers

I assume no one would disagree that a high power laser causes grievous bodily hard, and may be met with deadly force. Same as getting splashed with acid. So, low power lasers and harmless liquids may be met with deadly force, like pointing a toy gun? There is no way to distinguish between danger an...

Re: Gov of TX issues mask order!?!

So is this mask thing policy or law? Is if a felony or a misdemeanor? If it is just policy do I really have to id if I am doing nothing illegal? The governor is relying on chapter 418 of the Texas Government Code, which governs disasters. Under section 418.012, the governor, during a disaster, “may...

Re: Gov of TX issues mask order!?!

Where businesses require masks, I honor that requirement when I go in. But the result is that I don't go inside businesses unless I absolutely must. But wearing one outside is completely pointless and I refuse to do it. And I have no idea what "an outdoor public space, wherever it is not feasible to...

Re: Cities improperly posting 30.06 signs?

I was in Austin a few weeks ago, and noticed a number of improper 30.06/30.07 signs on government buildings. Specifically, I remember seeing them at the Travis County Mental Health Public Defender's office at 910 Lavaca, and the Travis County Ned Granger Administration Building at 314 W. 11th. I'd b...

Re: Taxes on Firearms

There is already a federal excise tax on firearm sales, not to mention the NFA tax, plus many firearm sales are subject to state sales tax. I don’t know if the more broad-based excise tax has been challenged on constitutional grounds, but the NFA was held not to violate the Second Amendment (at leas...

Re: Favorite carry method?

If I am not wearing a suit, I usually carry appendix. Usually a 1911, sometimes a Shield.

If I am wearing a suit, which is usually a couple times a week, then either OWB or IWB strong side depending on the gun:depending on the environment, I either carry a the 1911 OWB or. the Shield IWB.
