Re: AT&T Stadium for Non-Scholastic/Non-Professional Event

The legal technicalities regarding this issue are way beyond me, but I can imagine a scenario where off-duty police or private security prevent someone from entering the facility, and the city still maintains that they are not responsible. The police might also point out that the officers involved w...

Re: Civilian Markmanship Program

Yeah, the price is too high for me but I remember one of the basic tenets of Marketing 101:
The market sets the price. The price is whatever a willing buyer and a willing seller agree upon.

Re: The Finished 300 blackout build!!

der Teufel , Ever shoot any shoats or even smaller? If so, did you cook em whole or cut em up? Whoa, just found this. It would seem I've been pretty slack about keeping up with things. Of course, knee replacement surgery last Fall definitely put me in the slow lane for a few months, but … Anyway, I...

Re: H.R.38: National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

Not really, it takes 51 Republicans with the patriotism necessary to overcome Senate rules and decorum. Unfortunately that will never happen. They like their rules because it allows them to hide instead of doing the things their constituents want done. There are a lot of things I'd like to see cong...

Re: Trail cams

Another option is a Driveway Alert. Harbor Freight sells some cheap ones that have a range of maybe 100 feet. How far away from the house is the car parked? It's a battery operated motion detector that sounds an alert on a companion device inside the house. I've used them for hog hunting sometimes w...

Re: Target Switzerland

Switzerland didn't lead to anywhere the Germans needed to go, and they didn't consider it worth the price. Also, the Swiss acted as bankers (money launderers) for the Nazi regime and the Germans didn't want to end that.

There's an interesting article on CNN that supports the idea of protecting schools with armed guards — https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/18/opinions/gun-enhance-school-security-opinion-cortes/index.html Visit a jewelry store, a casino, even regular shopping malls and you'll find armed security everywhere....

Re: Attacking pit bull shot in League City

I'm of the mindset to blame the owner, not blame the breed. I view it as a combination of ingredients. Maybe owners could/should do better at training and restraining their pit bulls. However, it seems that when there's a news account of a vicious dog attack, often a pit bull is involved. I don't r...
