Re: Short trip ideas

Two day trips from Houston would be the "Hemi Hideout" in Brookshire :https://www.hemihideout.com/. It is not open all the time and you need to make a reservation to go there. Also there is the Bryan museum in Galveston: https://thebryanmuseum.org/. It is an amazing place and I am 99% sure it is whe...

Re: So can you carry at the DMV?

I have heard the lines are long, and you should make a reservation on line. https://www.kansascity.com/news/local/crime/article232449527.html This lady got frustrated at the wait in Kansas City and shot her gun several times. Where do you live. If in Houston you can go to Columbus (maybe 40 minute ...

Re: LAw regarding armed robbery - what does "imminent" mean?

This is why I enjoy this forum. There is not a single "hot head" reply to this situation. All replies are well thought out and not full of testosterone. The vast majority of us realize the gravity of shooting another person, whether justified or not. One of the 4 gun rules is knowing your target and...

My printed email said I would get an email from the fingerprint company. I did not get this. Did anyone else get a fingerprint email?

Re: Houston area shops

All the suggestions are good. I too live in Katy. I will buy just about anywhere EXCEPT Dick's. They severed their ties with the gun community after the Florida school shooting and I haven't been back in their store since. (Please correct me if things have changed)

Re: Denied CHL

I went through the Federal Flight Deck Officer Program back in 2003. (This is the Airline pilots who carry handguns) We had to jump through many hoops and satisfy many politicians. I think at that time (the program was just starting) the state of Texas had 2 Psychiatrists that were certified by the ...

Re: Ban carry at a parade or street festival on public streets

I am confused. Will there be a defined area where they are having the parade and is that defined area blocked off some way. Will you have to go through gates to get to an area to observe the parade? What if you own a business on one of those streets....can they not allow the business owner to carry ...

Lowes and Veteran Discounts

I have read many different versions of the Veteran discount at Loews. I bought a new washing machine yesterday and mentioned that I was a Veteran and the guy took 10% off the already sale price. Very simple and done at the register.

Re: New Jersey governor wants to increase gun-related fees

Hey, I have a thought. Maybe when the fees get so high it will be advantageous for New Jersey to ease up on getting a permit/Concealed License. They would take in lots of new revenue and everyone would be happy. They could balance their budget, give big raises to all state employees, clean up their ...

Re: Kamala Harris would proclaim new gun-control measures through executive orders (presidential decrees?)

This is why I’ve been so frustrated with Trump’s use of executive power. I know that he hasn’t used it as much as other presidents, but he has used them in more controversial decisions. Thus setting precedent for the next liberal president to order away the 2nd amendment. In the end it doesn’t matt...
