Re: I won a contest!

Looks cool. I’m kind of a lame builder of AR-15s...this appears chrome plated which indicates quality in my understanding. I understand the BCG, barrel and upper overall are the key components. So are you going to make this one a SBR? I know it’s outrageously expensive, but maybe get a registered lo...

He was using Tor which is more powerful (and way slower) than most commercial VPNs, but still if you want to maintain a pretty robust level of pri...

Re: LTC License Validation Website

I am pro 2nd amendment. Any laws or regulations added to such is anti 2nd amendment. If it is voluntary, fine. The minute they modify and make it compulsory, it is one more step in taking away our rights. One inch at a time folks, one inch at a time. I read your post and thought yep, I agree but th...

Re: Any bank recommendations?

I bank at Chase Bank. Jamie Dimon,the CEO is pro Trump. Never had one problem in many years of banking there. No posted signs. Dimon is a big Democrat. Did he really come out as supporting Trump? On what issues or is he supporting him for re-election? The Chase that closes accounts of conservatives...

Re: LTC License Validation Website

I am alright with it... after all, we are allowing someone to bypass a NICS check with this card. If you are an FFL, the very least that you should do is train your employees on the security features of a Texas ID and LTC card, and then use this website to verify that an LTC is valid.

Re: Effective Range of a .54 Cal Muzzleloader with Round Balls?

Round balls? Why not just use Minié balls? Civil War confederate guerrilla sniper Jack Hinson made hits on union soldiers up to 1000 yards out, using a muzzle loading rifle custom built for that kind of shooting, loaded with Minié balls. Admittedly, he typically fired down onto troop transports fro...

Re: No star in upper right corner of your DL? Problems after 10/1/2020.

You can request a new copy of your current license, so long as you’re more than 2 years from renewal. Maybe the new one will have the star. R To get my new DL, I had to go through a bunch of rigmarole. You need a birth certificate, and not just a photocopy. I got that letter too. You are correct th...

Re: SCOTUS Allows Sandy Hook Lawsuit to Proceed

taken to a logical conclusion, can car makers be sued when a car is stolen and wrecked, with injuries? Theoretically yes. But Plaintiffs would be unlikely to prevail. There are a few products that have partial Federal statutory exemptions from State lawsuits. Firearms and FDA regulated drugs come t...

Re: GUN SAFETY COURSE FOR ILLEGAL CONCEALED CARRY?

PC 46.02 makes it a Class A Misdemeanor. I don't think you can take a class and make that go away. Exactly. I do not believe there is a "defensive driving school" to beat a firearms charge. It would seem to depend on the prosecutor and/or the judge. If they want to waive or defer prosecution based ...

Re: No star in upper right corner of your DL? Problems after 10/1/2020.

My TX DL was issued in May, 2016 before DPS started issuing REALID compliant licenses. It doesn’t expire until 2023, so according to DPS website the October 2020 deadline will be more than 2 years before my expiration, leaving me unable to have a federally approved form of ID for boarding aircraft....

Re: Bloomberg running for POTUS?

So he blows a couple more million on ads once he officially runs. Has his “residency” changed to Alabama to run for WH. And then poof, he escaped NY and the taxes without a single complaint or them being any wiser. Seems like an expensive way to get out of NY, but with his money I’m sure the taxes ...
