Re: Church shooting in Tarrant County - White Settlement

If anyone wants to start a thread dealing with "best practices" for volunteer church security teams, please do so. However, if you plan to post something attacking Jack Wilson on this thread, don't waste your time. It will be deleted. Chas. Thank you for that. They/he saved countless lives... was i...

Re: suppressor

What I don't know about suppressor construction would fill volumes. What is needed in addition to the kits in your link? Chas. Apart from the Form 1 paperwork mentioned by others, a relevant muzzle-device. For example, I took the .22 suppressor (which is threaded for the .22 standard of 1/2"×28 thr...

Re: suppressor

I bought the .22 can as a kit from https://quietbore.com/product-category/solvent-traps/ The 30-cal I have, I built using parts from various suppliers (who may or may not still exist, but it should give you an idea what I used) - details in post #13 here: https://www.texaschlforum.com/viewtopic.php...

Enlightening statistics regarding U.S. murder rates

This is a very interesting list of murder rates for the top 67 cities in the U.S. Houston, soon to be the 3rd largest city in the Country, was number 47 while many northern states were much higher. Some of the highest have strict gun-control laws. Here is a sampling of the list: Beaumont was #53 wit...

Blue line said 60' 20 yds, oddly a week ago at our last match we had 2 20 yd headshots, nothing new there.
I agree that a 20 yd head shot against a stationary target in a match is no big deal. Twenty yards against a moving target under extreme stress is an entirely different matter.

Has anyone seen calculations on how far Wilson's shot was?
I read that Wilson said it was about 10 yds, but it looked more like 12 to 15 yds. The angle of the camera makes it hard to estimate.

Re: Church shooting in Tarrant County - White Settlement

. . . there WAS a new law passed in 2017 that I believe DOES deserve credit in this event. HB421 by Matt Rinaldi exempted volunteer church security personnel from Section 1702.333, Occupations Code. This allowed LTCs to carry self-defense handguns while volunteering. The heroes at this church (the ...

I'm at the airport heading back from NRA HQ. It will be over by the time I get to Hobby. This will be two in a row I missed because of the NRA. I hope to see everyone next month.
PM sent regarding January 3 breakfast.
