Re: Texas "10 acre" rule for discharging a firearm outside of city limits?

Just in case anyone was curious, when all was said and done I ended up dispatching 4 raccoons before they seemed to have stopped coming around. Perhaps I took out the whole family? :lol:

Re: G.W. Bush Library & CHL

I always thought the libraries were private property and paid for by the outgoing president himself.

Silly me. Of course it's our tax dollars paying for it.

Re: 3006.com help - how to report removed signs

There is both a "Report this entry" button in the mobile app, and on the website. On the website it's an actual link named "Report". Just click it and fill out the info.

Re: TX: Houston Police Officer has ND shooting self at academy range

I used to carry with a Serpa until I found out in a few of the Facebook groups I am a member of how most folks think about them (dangerous), and after evaluating the explanations I found myself agreeing.

I carry with a Safariland ALS now.

Re: Texas "10 acre" rule for discharging a firearm outside of city limits?

Did ya make meatballs or slow-smoked ribs? lol! Neither. Not interested in eating a city-based fleabag. I'd want to be out further in the country before I even consider that. Did he make you jump when you went to pick up the trap? :lol: I've trapped quite a few. Yeah he was pretty unhappy. I also d...

Re: Texas "10 acre" rule for discharging a firearm outside of city limits?

So, if a county has NOT passed a more restrictive ordinance, there is no restriction on firearms discharge? Except for in the case if you are close enough to a neighbor that the DA could make a case for Deadly Conduct. The Sheriff's deputy I spoke to told me here in Harris Co. he believes they go b...

Re: Texas "10 acre" rule for discharging a firearm outside of city limits?

I've shot it in my back yard a few times now, it's not nearly as loud as the CCI Quiet's I tested (which aren't really quiet at all imo), it won't bother anyone. Raccoon came back again last night and defeated the defenses I put up to protect my outside animal feeder. Working on obtaining a trap now...

How about a “suppressed” air rifle? https://airriflehunter.com/top-5-quietest-air-rifles/ I've actually gone that route. Picked this up this evening, pretty nice little rifle: https://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/crosman-shockwave-22-caliber-pellet-air-rifle#repChildCatid=1517045&bopisStoreId=239 Also ...

Re: Texas "10 acre" rule for discharging a firearm outside of city limits?

But I did find something else you might want to invest in. Raccoons are classified as fur bearing animals, not as game or pest animals. This means you need a trappers license, not a hunting license, to take them. And it defines taking as either shooting or trapping them and includes possession of t...

Re: Texas "10 acre" rule for discharging a firearm outside of city limits?

Last time I checked with the TX Dept of Wildlife, statewide, the minimum is 5 acres with counties having the ability to raise the minimum. For instance, here in Brown Co. the requirement is 10 Acres. When in doubt, ask a Game Warden! ;-) I'm unable to find the law that says that. Are you able to so...
