Re: Legit or gimmick?

This is interesting. Looks like you can lighten your recoil spring considerably without slapping the youknowwhat out of the frame. In theory, this should lighten felt recoil considerably. It would at least spread out the felt recoil and convert the "snappyness" of a 9mm or .40 into more of a push. T...

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

My reasoning is pretty simple; I find the other choice dishonest, untrustworthy, unconnected to reality. I find it fascinating that when I disliked Obama's POLICIES, I was a considered a racist by people on the left. All of the complaints I hear from the left concerning the current POTUS (and in th...

Re: EDC Gun Maintenance

I used to be a "clean it after every range session" person before I got into competitive shooting. My competition gun will routinely go 3k-6k rounds without so much as a field strip. I have even pushed that out to 10k without issues. A full disassemble and cleaning only happens once a year and I han...

Re: Thoughts on open carry

I don't open-carry for two primary, but not exclusive, reasons. I don't want to draw attention to the fact that I'm armed; and 2) I don't want to get shot by a BG if I'm sufficiently unlucky to be at a location where an armed robbery goes down. Yeah, I'm saying I don't want to be a target and it's ...

Re: Thoughts on open carry

I used to OC quite a bit, but since I got a car with really nice Nappa leather seats, I mostly CC now. I'll still occasionally OC if I'm going to be out and about in my truck.

Re: Should you draw your weapon to help a LEO?

Assisting a LEO who is losing a physical altercation is the one scenario where I would be most likely to deploy deadly force in the defense of a third party. It would be reasonable to believe that the assailant will use deadly force against the LEO (his own weapon). It's also the only scenario where...

Re: Oh the Irony

Yeah, but where the hack is Ted? Not very visible as far as I can tell. That metro-sexual Beto character is everywhere. SIgns all over, robocalls, text messages, and still no Ted. I question his desire for another term and wonder if he is about to throw Texas under the scooby van? Have you donated ...

Meanwhile, Stormy Daniels was given a Key to the City by the mayor. Sigh. The president's star was removed, and a porn actress gets a key to the city. America, how you've fallen.
Yet Bill Cosby and OJ Simpson still have stars on the WOF.

Re: Slow Trump news day

To be honest, I could care less what Duane Johnson did yesterday, today, or tomorrow. But I now have the urge to send him a gift card for one of Landry's seafood restaurants as a thank you for distracting lefties from Trump for 5 minutes.

Re: Parkland survivor David Hogg

Isn't it interesting. David Hogg has a book deal, has a nationwide book tour with entourage and armed security being financed (most likely) by a former NYC mayor. Who outside of SE Texas can name even one of the survivors from Santa Fe? https://www.dailysignal.com/2018/08/05/underreported-the-santa-...

Dog Show = Sporting Event?????

My wife and I started showing our dogs this year and I've been carrying under the assumption that it is NOT a sporting event. Many dogs are handled by professional handlers, so if it is a sporting event, then adding the word professional isn't a stretch. Since we will be in Art Acevedo's playground ...

Charles’ bill needs a catchy name, and we need to come up with it before the anti-gun press does.

I propose

“Common Sense Gun Law”

Or

“Common Sense Carry”.

Branding is important.
If you want it to pass, call it the Texas Safe Schools Bill
