Re: Stolen gun and.... wait for it...

I have a lockbox in my console also. It's not as fancy as the safes but it works for my needs.

In the first, report the bad guy was refereed to as a victim :headscratch
Well, he is a victim of his own poor judgement.

Re: New range coming to NW Harris County (HWY290-FM1960)

Interesting location to be sure. It'll be interesting to watch the "local" reactions to a shooting range at the entrance to the subdivision.

FYI If anyone local to that area wants to grab a cup of coffee let me know.

New range coming to NW Harris County (HWY290-FM1960)

Wow! This is opening less than a mile from my house!

Hi Folks,
I was just curious if this meet-up still happened occasionally.

It's disturbing to dig into what those convictions are, but then I have to remind myself how small a fraction they are of the general populous...which in turn is disturbing all over again.
Yeah, I looked at that also. It is disturbing.

Re: Bullying? Mean? Evil? What?

ThatGuy, We're about the same age and I was a true latch-key kid. I got myself ready for school since 5 grade and got myself to school, got home alone, ran around on our bicycles all hours of the evening and as a teen out until even midnight (not on a school day of course). We didn't yell or cuss at...

Re: No 51% sign in a 51% establishment...

If one 'knows' that carrying at a bar is a 'no-no', I wouldn't. Unless you like to risk your LTC and take the ride. I really don't need a sign. :iagree: Don't carry a handgun in a bar. Carry a shotgun or a rifle with a 30 round magazine. That way you can sling enough lead to counteract double visio...

Observing the rules is part of being grown-up. Sidewalk lawyering about signs and/or their absence or presence...

Re: First AR, Colt M4 Trooper vs Sig M400 Elite

I know, like the holster drawer full of "learning opportunities." They both have most of the furniture I'd be good with, and the SIG even has a decent Red Dot to start with.

Now to figure out how to pay for it!

Donations will be happily accepted. :mrgreen:

I hope so too. If he was, he won't be for long.
