Re: How To Renew LTC Starting In September?

I suppose you'll upload a copy of your training certificate, just like we do supporting documents now.

Re: Transferring a Handgun to My Adult Son

.......... puma guy, I didn't know that they were using 4473s as far back as 1968. Anyway, when I bought it from a private seller at a gun show (don't remember the year, but it was nearly 10 years ago), of course I didn't fill out a 4473. He gave me the gun, I gave him the money and that was it. So...

Re: Why is our forum's URL suffix .com instead or .org?

Yeah, way back in the dark ages the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) was pretty strict about differentiating between types but now days anybody can get anything. Many organizations will buy all the suffixes they can get and just redirect all to the main URL.

NRA Life - $750

I've seen a few people mention thinking about upgrading to life membership so I wanted to insure that everyone knew that currently it's been reduced to $750 through a recruiter. Of course, I'm putting my link down here.

Re: Anti drone equipment

The FAA regulates drones as aircraft and you should know that even threatening to intentionally damage or destroy an aircraft is a federal felony. Actually doing so is also a federal felony. The feds have yet to prosecute someone for doing so yet, however there is word that the FAA is working with ...

Re: Anti drone equipment

I bet I could get it with a pellet rifle. I bet you could! FWIW, a .22 pellet from a PCP rifle has more energy than a tiny .177. As long as his camera doesn't catch the rifle and it isn't illegal in your municipality, things might work out. But I am NOT advocating you do that, mmmkay? Don't forget ...

Where in the heck did she get that 7 States ban hollowpoints? I can only find one New Jersey!
11 states. That's probably armor piercing. She (or her research team) has no clue about the difference.

Re: Difference between TABC signs?

Yes. Red =51%, blue = blue sign only. The places I've run into a blank has been at a vineyard. Assume it's because of the type of license.

Re: NRA CCW Instructor class

At Indy they talked of the course as having fourteen or more modules from which a NRA CCW instructor could pick to have a course meeting the requirements of their state, and that was true for all 50 states. I just don't see that working in Texas.

San Antonio city council wrong - as usual

For some time the SA city council has been pondering on three ordinances. (1) prohibit firearm and ammunition sales within 1,000 feet of any school or church (2) restrict the location of a business that sells guns or ammunition to the highest-density commercial areas (3) prohibit gun stores from loc...

Re: Firearm in vehicle at work

...... Unless you work at a Federal building, including a US Post Office, or at Superfund site, then you are good to go no matter what your employer says because Texas law is clear that parking lots are NOT premises AND your vehicle is an extension of your domicile. Period. If you work at a Federal...
