Re: Good article and then entertaining comments

Read the letter and comments. All I can say is WOW. One of the responders certainly seems to have a serious case of Trump derangement syndrome and refuses to discuss in a polite manner differences of opinion.

Re: Student Visa?

IIRC, he can purchase a "deferral of Hunter Safety which is good for 1-year. After that must do Hunter safety to get a Hunting License. had to do that with my son when he came back from Iraq. Think the deferral is $10 or $15. Just easier to find a hunter safety instructor and get it done. many Instr...

Yep, would have believed about $800ish for service grade and $400-$500 for the rack

Re: Civilian Markmanship Program

Sorry, but over $1,000 for a service grade 1911 and over $800 for one that is listed as pitted and will require work to be serviceable.... Glad I have a 5 digit 1911 I bought in 1973. Understand that these are "actual military 1911," but in the condition I saw them in on active duty as well as the c...

Re: 147th Annual NRA Meeting in Dallas

OK, now I am getting really confused. I am coming up from Fort Hood on 4 May, but am NOT going to the Leadership Forum . I am only going to the exhibits at KBH Convention Center. I don't want to drive from Fort Hood ~3 hours to downtown Dallas, spend the evening after the exhibits close in downtown ...

Re: AMENDMENT TWO: A LEGAL IMMIGRANT’S CAUTIONARY TALE

I had a professor in graduate school who became a naturalized citizen while I was taking his class and he invited me to the Naturalization Ceremony. He had a BA with Honors from the University of New Delhi, an MA from Cambridge, and a PhD in Political Science from the University of Illinois. HE was ...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

While I firmly believe that Cruz will beat Beto, my neighborhood already has 3 or 4 Beto signs (the usual suspects). The campaign has already started. We need to have a massive conservative turn-out to totally bury this guy. Remember, we may not fully agree with a particular candidate, but we KNOW w...

Re: NRA National Meeting May 3-6 -- Anybody Worried?

WHOOOHOOOOO, got mine today also. Since I am a "Country Mouse" from down near Fort Hood and have not spent much time in Dallas since 1973 (yes that is correct), about how far is the downtown DART station on the Green Line away from the KBH Convention Center? Think it is the West End Station or the o...

Re: Dick's Sporting Goods to destroy all unsold firearms after Parkland shooting

Have had a Dick's in the Fort Hood area for several years. NEVER saw an AR of any kind on the rack. Used to buy ammo from them when it was on sale, but they haven't had a decent sale in years. Haven't wasted my time or money in there in forever, now, never will. Did they find a couple in a warehouse...

Re: Instructors that wear Body Armour

Depends on if I know the students (I usually only teach 1 or 2 at a time). If strangers and I am not sure of their skills I wear an old Level II concealable. Seriously thinking about an upgrade to a IIIA,

Re: ‘Good luck with THAT’! Texas Dem Beto O’Rourke just handed Ted Cruz a LANDSLIDE election win

Hopefully his words will come back to haunt him in the general election. This needs to be saved for a Cruz press release long about October. Beto was playing up to HIS base at SXSW, not necessarily the TEXAS base.
