Re: Off The Beaten Path - Calvert, TX

Calvert is also a notorious speed trap for folks traveling SH6 between Waco and College Station, not exactly off the beaten path. The city limits signs are way out of town and set the 55MPH limit signs coming from 75MPH. Many folks get nailed speeding up too early, or not slowing down quickly enoug...

Re: Happy Birthday n5wmk!!

Thanks, Jusme! Wife and I took a short vacation trip to Maine. Stayed in a tiny place outside of Poland, ME as our base. Sunday drove into Canada - Lac Megantic, Quebec for lunch. Rest of the time toured around the Maine coast, ate lots of seafood. Morning temps were low 60's, never saw a high temp ...

M16/AR-15 Animation Video

Apologies if this is already here somewhere - I looked but didn't find it already posted. Youtube video - some of the best and most amazing 3D animation and rendering that I've seen. Clear explanation of the operation in full auto and differences between M16 and AR-15 style rifles. The channel also ...

Re: AZ: Kidnapping foiled

I think (right now), that if I had pulled my handgun on the guy who grabbed the girl, that I would have demanded he lay down on the ground, and I would have called (or had someone call) 911. If he chose to get up and run away before LEO arrived, so be it. But actually being part of the event, my act...

Re: For Kavanaugh Fans Only

Yes, I saw this on an email from them yesterday, ordered one this morning. Probably not a lot of people who would realize the logo meaning.

Re: Memorial Day 2019

Today is not about those of us who are veterans. It’s about remembering and thanking these men and women: You are correct, sir! Lots of people know that I am a veteran, and when they thank me for my service during Memorial Day Weekend, I will gently say "You're welcome, but let's remember that Memo...

They should leave the statue in City Park until somebody buys it.
Already gone - they removed it back in 2017. It's in a warehouse somewhere.

Re: Weapon storage near Glacier national park

If I were in the same situation, I think I would call a local Sheriff's Office and ask to speak with the Sheriff himself/herself. I would explain the situation, emphasizing that I am LTC in Texas, and ask if I could store my weapon in the SO armory for however long I would be in Canada. I would offe...

Re: Would you fire this?

I watched that video a couple of days ago - interesting, but he took off more metal that necessary in my opinion, using that angle grinder/sanding disc. Not fond of the more rounded contours on it - or of the highly polished almost chrome look. I doubt that lasted very long - I think it would rust r...

Re: Lowes and Veteran Discounts

With me it's been hit or miss with Home Depot (in Galveston) Last time I was there they told me only on certain holidays. I show my Drivers license that has VETERAN marked on it. Lowes always lets me have a discount. Agree - same way here in North Dallas area. If you're a 20+ years active duty vete...

Re: Frisco PD working "active situation" involving DPS Trooper

Would love to hear the police radio audio while watching that video above.

Happy to hear that the officer's surgery was successful. And glad the suspect was captured alive. Hope he serves a very long prison term.
