Shutdown of Laws Booklets (LTC-16) printing

In early March, I used the DPS form and ordered 40 of the new LTC-16s at $5 each. (Now almost 150 pages!) The check for $200+ cleared the bank in late March. Never receiving the shipment and figuring that "porch pirates" might have taken it, I called the number on the form to check. The gal informed...

Re: Closed gun ranges

"I may run the risk of getting a hefty ticket if a deputy is called by a neighbor."

You might want to check out the "ticket" risk. Some penalties I have seen mentioned could cost folks their LTC for 7 years ......

Re: Need help with “Essential Businesses”

"On a positive note Denton County included gun and ammunition retailers as essential in their order which went into effect last night." I just e-mailed County Judge Andy Eads. Informed him of pro bono class suspension for a small Baptist church Safety Team and record numbers of gun sales (by others)...

Re: Closed gun ranges

Denton County Sports Assn. private indoor range operating as normal: no walk-ins, but 24/7 access for members. For the foreseeable future (even after County lock down is lifted), small, private classes only.

Re: Know Your Target and What’s In-Between

I happen to know a dude ;-) who was sitting in the extreme back end of a long bow blind, shooting thru the slit of a front window with an AR with a 3-9X scope mounted about 2 1/2 inches above the bore. A big fat doe lived to see another day due to these things called "window sill" and "mechanical of...

Re: Sig P365 XL???

No personal experience with the XL, but a considerable amount with the original versions. For me anyway, the closest to "the perfect every day carry gun" that I have found. The "short grip" was easily fixed here by the use of 12-round magazines. Academy also stocks a $40 15-rounder - which I find to...

Re: Difference of opinion before the "rack"

""Tap/Rack/Bang" always carried a conditional measure of familiarity and usage that has been lost in carrying the concept forward to people whose mouths drop open at the idea of shooting 250 rounds a year." Agreed. The issue I have with eliminating the "tap" is that I'm an pretty sure that there are...

Difference of opinion before the "rack"

I noticed recently that John Correia has a record number of followers on YouTube. Good for him. He does have some good things to say. But ….. I am not in agreement with what he states in #10 in the article linked below (and in a specific video he did on the subject). The reason being, even in not ne...

Re: Questionable comment in Outdoor Life article on AR accuracy

Thanks for the prompt replies, guys. This is not the first time I have seriously questioned what one of the Outdoor Life writers had to say.

Questionable comment in Outdoor Life article on AR accuracy

Toward the end of this, the author makes a comment that the point of impact on the last shot from an AR mag can be different due to the bolt locking back. I would think that by the time that happens, any change in "harmonics" should not matter as the bullet has probably already exited the barrel. Wh...

Re: Texas "10 acre" rule for discharging a firearm outside of city limits?

Quote: "I really hate to be the one to break the news and harsh your mellow but you will never be rid of raccoons." I would modify that slightly to say never be completely rid of raccoons. They find a good thing and tell all of their friends and family. On my latest game camera, one had showed up un...

Re: Oklahoma Constitutional Carry

"Of course when Ok turns Blue, we can kiss it all goodbye anyway."

If you check the county maps of Oklahoma from the last several elections, I believe you will find that Oklahoma will be one of the last states to go blue - if ever. I WISH we could say the same for Tejas.
