State Jail convictions

I tried to search the forum for this, but a search for "State Jail" drops the word state and only searches for jail. I have a co-worker who served time in a Texas State Jail facility. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't state Jail convictions still felonies, even though the sentence is for less than...

Re: 80% Glock - deep concealment

This kind of logic will NOT be tolerated around here! :-) Although I will admit a wish to take this the other direction. I'd like a 17 slide on my 26 lower. Nice sight radius, small handle above my belt. The product shown kind of does this but with the added bonus of a really compromised grip and a...

Re: WTS: Ruger GP100 4in barrel

Is the GP100 still available? If so, would you now consider trade offers?

Thanks,

Re: 2 for sale Glock and Taurus....

Re: your Glock 34

Any interest in a Sig P320 full-size in .45ACP?

80 rounds down the pipe.
3 extra mags for a total of 5.
Alien Gear IWB holster.
SigLite night sights.

I live a ways north of Houston, but can meet if a deal is made.

Re: New IPhone APP maps concealed handgun permit holders.

But it's a perfect compliment to your CHL Badge!

Re: Campus Carry Question

Boxerrider, True that. Lots of room for cleanup. A thought crossed my mind on this: With it delayed implementation on junior colleges till 2017, it may get cleaned up before it even takes effect...well almost anyway. A lot of the legislative output takes effect on 9/1. Most semesters start a week o...

Re: Campus Carry Question

Great! Another year before I can carry at work! All because I work for a Junior/Community College. I completely missed that when I was reading the bill/law. :mad5

Re: My First IDPA match with my Shield 9

I love my Shield 9! There are no local IDPA matches for me to put her through of which I am aware, but in static target practice, she shoots like a much larger pistol. IMHO, you have excellent taste in carry pistols, my friend!

School premises don't cease to be school premises when they are used for other purposes, unfortunately.

What do I need to know about Tennessee

I may be travelling to Tennessee with my family this summer, and I have my Texas CHL. Just curious from those who have been there recently what I need to know about TN's carry laws. Particularly where they differ from Texas's. Thanks for your help.

We don't have a gas chamber. I have been in the death chamber, and, as I'm sure we all know, we use lethal injection. ;-)

Re: Beretta 96 Trigger Pull

Have you replaced the hammer spring with the "D" spring? It is the DAO weight hammer spring and makes that first, DA trigger pull much nicer.

Re: What age to transition to a pistol?

Both of my boys have been shooting .22 pistols since they were 6. Colt .22 pistol and Beretta U22 Neos. My older son has graduated to 9mm, .45ACP, .38Spcl., .410, and 12 guage. Maybe others I have forgotten. He's a teenager, now. The younger boy has shot .38Spcl., 9mm, and .410. He's still in the th...
