Re: HB 1927 on the Senate floor now

"I think it will be a little easier when the LTC-16 2021/22 comes out (assuming they still keep printing it)."

I'll be surprised if they get it done and available by January 2022.

Re: HB 1927 on the Senate floor now

Yep, the last instructor "in person" re-ups were in Georgetown. The facility was nice but the presenters were pitiful. There had not been very many significant changes (other than approving online courses) and the presenters were not really up to speed. While I have been to many DPS school...

.357Sig brass for sale

If anyone in the DFW Metromess wants to come pick it up at the range at a time of mutual convenience, I have somewhere around 600 cases of 357Sig brass that I suspect should be worth around 50 bucks to the right person. If anyone further away wants it bad enough to pay another 40 bucks for me to mak...

Re: Buds Guns

I dropped in Academy in Flower Mound around 10:30 this morning, remembering that Thursday was a "truck day". Gobs of people milling around in the isles when I asked for a number at gun counter. Got #71. Clerk said ammo was "still on the truck" so I asked if he had any clue what w...

Re: WTB: Glock 19 MOS Gen 4 or 5

I did not check details, but last time in my local Academy (Flower Mound), they had some Glocks for "reasonable" (in this market) prices.

Re: Am I A Nerd?

What has been working pretty well for me lately is Duluth Tradeing's Firehose pants. The right top pocket is appropriately sized to carry P365 with 12-round mag in a pocket holster. The material felt somewhat thin in cold winds, so maybe that will be a benefit when we get to July. Coincidently, I j...

Re: Portable Generators

Quote: "$1,700.00 seems a bit much to run just one item." I am far from an electrical guru, but think that $1700 setup would let a homeowner just flip on as many breakers as a generator could handle. Based upon the rolling blackouts that we experienced in our part of Flower Mound, I believ...

Re: Ammo trade (Want .22LR) have .223, 9mm, .45, and .308

If any plans to be in the North Dallas or Denton area, I know a guy ;-) who has an unopened bucket of 1400 Remington Golden boolits. And likes 9mm fmj by major manufacturers. And has been known to do a little horse tradin'. :mrgreen:

Re: Five Rounds, Five Seconds, Five Yards, Five Inches

Quote: "Some ranges in my area require 2 seconds in between each shot."

Our range preference is "2 shots on target inside of 2 seconds" - preferably from the holster.

Re: Who didn’t lose power?

We are on CoServ in our part of Flower Mound. Power was off more than on, but at least on for long enough at times for gas furnace to take chill off - and for us to cook a few quick meals. Had brought Mr. Heater Buddy home from hunting lease and went thru 2 little propane bottles for it. Fireplace, ...
