Re: TX: An unloaded gun went off and killed a Houston 15 year old.

As a young child I was taught gun safety. In the house I grew up in all of the guns and ammo were mine and stayed in my closet (.22,9mm, .357, 30-30) from the age of about 8. OK, .22 at 8, .357 at 11, 9MM and 30-30 in my teens. But I learned early and quickly that they are not toys! They do not get ...

Re: FL: Homeowner with AR15 kills 2, in armed home invasion.

https://www.gainesville.com/news/20190711/summerfield-homeowner-injured-kills-2-intruders-with-ar-15 He was wounded in the gun fight. 4 attackers. Nobody needs an AR15 until you need one. I'm in a very populated area so I prefer a pistol or shotgun. The chance that a 5.56 round can go through and o...

Yep, that's the reason I'm getting one. Never know when anarchy is going to break out.
They will be handy to have if all that is around us goes to heII, but I still believe the best reason to own an AR is that they are just plain fun to shoot.

Re: Houston area shops

Check out Shoot Point Blank in Cypress. 10310 Wortham Center, Houston 77065, Great indoor range and great staff. Prices are pretty close to street pricing, so very good.

Re: If You Carry a Gun, You Need an Outfit to Match

This is Texas. I have Cowboy boots! However I usually wear sandals in my off hours. At this age, running is not in the cards.

Re: Watch Where You Walk

We have no venomous snakes at my place, just Bull snakes. I just pick them up and relocate them so they don’t startle my wife. Are you IN Texas?

Re: Watch Where You Walk

A couple weeks ago my buddy was pulling some wood out of his wood pile and was greeted by a Coral snake. He killed it with a 4' long shovel. There is no way I'd have gotten that close! Someone needs to educate themselves about snakes. Unless you let that poor Coral snake chew on you your friend kil...

Re: Watch Where You Walk

Black widow spiders, brown recluse spiders, scorpions, rattle snakes, copper heads, cotton mouths, dive bombing blue jays, kleptomaniac racoons, an elusive mountain lion and attack squirrels can all found between me and my mail box, but there is no way I would return to living in the Metroplex. :no...

Re: Kay Jewelers store manager no longer employed after keeping on-duty deputy from picking up ring

I don't know all the details from the article but it sounds like the manager may have been following Kay policy. It was an easy scapegoat to fire the manager after a social media notation. So Kay Jewelers has an anti-gun policy, the manager follows orders and gets fired. Kay Jewelers then looks goo...

Re: Stag Arms announces decision to relocate

Texas makes sense. Plenty of land, no State income tax, most cities offer tax breaks for bringing in jobs, good highways for shipping, Right to Work laws, plus a built in customer base. I wish more would move here, S&W, Henry, Colt, Kimber, etc.. I hate that buying guns, helps fund States, that wan...
