Re: TX: Houston rooftop sniper shoots 4 kills 2

I posted not too long ago: “ Houston doesn’t have a gang problem. We only have 21,000 registered gang members and they only affect each other” Acevedo Where is this registry and is it public so we can all see? I would imagine registering gang membership is about as effective as registering felons w...

Re: Wash DC: MAGA hat wearing teens get ugly with drum beating indigenous people

I think its a ridiculous amount. Considering he is going to be the "Covington Kid" in every job interview for the rest of his life, I think it might not be enough... I don't know how true this is. The public has a very short memory, and I believe that he has pretty much been cleared in the public e...

Re: Dog attack in St. Petersburg - OK to Shoot Attacking Dog ?

The quote above of Serious Bodily Injury is a definition from Penal Code Chapter 1. But the laws sometime refer to an "actor" (causing serious bodily injury) which by definition is a person, not a dog. And, a "person" can be an individual, corporation, or association. I'm curious to see where you g...

Re: I am not going to buy a gun today!

I bought my 92FS several years ago. The Beretta finish has held up without any special care even though it lives in a kydex holster. Very accurate handgun but most of all it's a fun shooter. I don't know about any reputation of unreliability, mine has been flawless and consistent. Thousands of round...

Re: Why Talk Of ‘Shot Placement’ Can Be Pretty Stupid

Internet discussions that turn into arguments tend to be pointless. Most gun platforms and ammo choices are an engineering trade-off. The issues of what factors are more important depend on factors that can only be decided by the end user. Discussions that dispassionately discuss benefits and acknow...

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

ABC 13 reported: “According to the court documents, police recovered four guns, about 18 grams of marijuana and about 1.5 grams of an unknown white powder.” Is 1 gram very much? Attorney familiar with drug operations said he would have expected to find scales and unused baggies if it was a drug ope...

Sounds like the plaintiff's attorney knows as much about gun laws as the vast majority of the general public does. Nada.
He knows how to invoice and collect fees.

We as a group have many faults, but we almost all grow up loving our home teams. I watched them Last week fi...
