Re: Weapon storage near Glacier national park

Be sure to take your pass ports or passport cards if you are going to Canada. Not so much for Canada itself but for coming back into the US. It can be a big hassle with out the passport. Didn't use to be that way but it can be now depending on the ICE agents involved. Storage of the handgun is very ...

Re: Any ham trader sites...

I will second mojohn on MTC. They are good people and stand behind their stuff. The closest store would be Paris , TX HRO is another that is a good operation and they have a store in Plano, Tx. Both have an on line operation. After a 15 year absence from the operating Ham world I jumped back in a co...

Re: NL: Shooter runs into path of own bullets

Either way. If you fly underneath the bullets trajectory at high speed you can catch the rounds.

Re: NL: Shooter runs into path of own bullets

If you fire at an slight upward angle then fly under the bullet path at high speed you can catch or pass the rounds. The rounds are slowing down rapidly and starting to fall They are dangerous if you ingest one in the engine or hit a live HEI (explosive). It's been part of "don't do training" for de...

Re: What Point of Sale system do you use?

Depends on how big an inventory and if you need inventory control / reorder capability. Our hardware store uses NCR Counterpoint but I hold VERY short of recommending it. It's way too inflexible to adjust to our needs. (and it is expensive)

Re: Mass murder at a Church kills 32

This site provides an indication of just how under reported attacks on Christians are in the mainstream media. Very few of these have I seen anything about in the mainstream media. It seems it isn't politically correct to cover such vicious tragedies against Christians but it is when it is the othe...

Re: Earthquake in East Texas

Didn't notice anything, but I'm about 105 miles away though. Went through a 6.+ in Turkey once at about the same distance. That made things sway a bit and made me feel queasy. Went through several 2s - 4s in Japan and Ca. and a 3 in Me. They were just noticeable at 20-40 miles. A 3 in Japan was almo...

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

I think "Beto's" main purpose for running is to try to get the VP nomination. He got a sizable following in Texas and could help any other dem. try to carry the state. He's also got millions of campaign dollars left to contribute to the cause. The dems will go all out to flip our state.

Re: TX: The mean interstate near Waco

I have been the victim of overpass killers twice (once in Iowa and once in Tx) and saw the results of others west of Chicago and northern Maine. I now try to change lanes in underpasses if traffic permits. Also try to gauge what the potential threat is by the amount of traffic overhead. Hours of dar...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

I could see Trump declaring an emergency and rather than starting with a wall as that takes time. Jumping on diverting funds for border protection and deportation. If there were sweeping increases in raids and deportations the Dems would wake up real quick. With all the money spent on the Departmen...
