Re: Solar Power

For wind, expect to put up a 30ft diameter windmill on at least a 100ft tower if you want anything out of it. I doubt many jurisdictions will let you do that but I have the luxury of being in the middle of nowhere. I don’t think it needs to be 100 foot high but I guess that depends on where you are...

Re: Selling to a non LTC holder

You can sale to any person who is a Texas resident and as far as you know is not a felon. There is no law that puts you under any obligation to run a background or “check papers.” If you want to go the second mile take them to a FFL and do a transfer. Short of that anything else is useless. Agreed,...

Re: Selling to a non LTC holder

Something to think about: A friend of mine in Arkansas sold or traded a handgun to a dealer at a gun show. A few years later, the BATF rang his doorbell and asked him if he ever owned that handgun. He told them he got a receipt when he sold it. After showing them the receipt, he asked, "is there a ...

Re: Retirement grows closer

I retired at 66, but if I knew then what I knew now I would have waited until 70. Now, if monthly income from outside sources is no issue, then ignore me. But if it IS important and you rely on SS to provide a substantial portion, then waiting until 70 is almost a 33% increase in monthly benefits o...

Re: Medical Marijuana or gun-Feds say cant have both

I bet states that are thumbing their noses at federal law aren't telling marijuana "patients" the impact on their Second Amendment rights. Chas. I’m wondering how long it will be before the ATF goes after someone for this. I would assume it would only be pursued along with another crime but who kno...

Re: Talon grip tape

I was looking at my G29 and wondering why the Talon grip tape has held up on a daily carry gun yet others have had problems. If you are going to apply the Talon grip tape clean your pistol well, it takes more than the wipes they provide. I used a tooth brush and isopropyl alcohol to scrub it and all...

Re: What Would You Do To Help

This is why I avoid crowds most of the time. The older I get the more I focus on avoiding anywhere I may get into undesirable situations. I also know myself and it would be hard to stand by and do nothing or even to just walk away and I do t want to be in that position.

Re: Reporting Multiple Sales

Are FFL required to report multiple stripped receiver sales? To answer the question a bit more directly, no, FFLs do not report multiple sales of receivers. Correct, a receiver is not a firearm so it doesn’t fall under the multiple rifle sales reporting requirements. If it is not considered to be a...

Re: Jarhead Confidence

I don’t want to offend any Marines and this is a good story but I want to add a comment to consider. I understand the hand to hand combat training Marines go through and for a combat situation when someone is trying to kill you that is fine and necessary. Knife fights are not what we see on tv, some...

I have never had a problem with it. I made sure I cleaned it well and used a hot hair dryer when putting them in place and they have never given me a problem.
