Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

The article is long and detailed but it explains why a malaria drug helps and why 80% of ventilator patients die. (80% number is my math. An earlier article stated that if 20% that go on a ventilator survive.) http://web.archive.org/web/20200405061401/https://medium.com/@agaiziunas/covid-19-had-us-a...

Isn't warmer in Houston, right now, than 'yankees' will have mid-July?

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

Maybe this is a dumb question or it has already been asked and answered but... What will be different May 31st 2020? There will still be a virus there will still be infected there will not be a vaccine What about June 30th 2020? I've heard about flattening out the curve but if we go back to the way ...

Re: Newly redesigned TX DL and ID effective 2/24/20

I don't know about "MANDATORY" but:

My TDL expires in Fall of 2021. I've gotten a couple of letters from the DPS saying it will no longer be a valid id for the Airport or Federal buildings after October 2020. They suggest that I renew early. (Or, I could just use my passport.)

Re: What Did You Do In The Reloading Room This Week?

115 gr seems light for a .45

But...

I get in ruts.

I think I've only reloaded 200 gr. lead for .45. Some plain lead and some coated.

Re: What Did You Do In The Reloading Room This Week?

This week, I completed loading 2500 147 gr. Bayou coated bullets in 9MM. I've shot about 1000 without issues. The rest should carry me through the spring (assuming I continue to shoot around a USPSA match per week). If I run low, I'll switch to the Montana Gold 147 gr. and 115 gr. that I have loaded...

Re: Any bank recommendations?

Spirit of Texas Bank has offices near where I worked before retirement but not all that close to home. How do online banks handle signature cards? (On the other hand, why do I care? I've only written 3 or 4 checks this year.) I very rarely go inside a bank. I do all my business, online or at the ATM...

Re: Any bank recommendations?

I don't OC. Many places consider it a 'dress code' violation.

Wells Fargo & Chase have branches all around me.

Any bank recommendations?

It may be time for me to change banks.

I am looking for a bank that tolerates firearm owners, and has branches around Houston and the rest of Texas. :txflag: :fire

Does anyone have any thoughts they would like to share?
