WTS: New Saiga 12 Gauge $550 in Houston

I need to quickly fund another project so I'm looking to sell my never fired Saiga 12 gauge with extra magazine. These go for about $850 new and I am asking $300 off of that with the extra mag. That's a pretty dang hot deal. The only reason I'm selling it for this is I need to generate funds for a p...

Good places to buy the junk silver coins?
I buy mine from a local guy in Spring, TX. His business is simply called "The Coin Shop".

I stick to pre-1964 "junk" silver US coins. I have some bullion but I try to limit it.

Re: Trying to Fine a Holster for My New Sig P226 SAO Elite

That's odd about Comp-Tac. I just ordered a holster from them for my 226 X5 which also has different dimensions than the standard 226. They make everything to order and seem to have holsters that accommodate a wide variety of guns. I was having trouble finding one that fit my X5 until I looked at C...

Trying to Find a Holster for My New Sig P226 SAO Elite

I'm having trouble finding an IWB holster that will work with my newest purchase. I just bought a Sig P226 Elite that is SAO (model number NS E26R-9-BSE-SAO). My favorite type of IWB holster is a Comp-Tac CTAC holster but they don't make one for the Sig P226 Elite pistols. When I called Comp-Tac to ...

Re: Thoughts On Foreign Trained MD's

One impact I've seen in my own family (my father is a practicing OBGYN/doctor) is that the influx of foreign doctors lowered the wages of many doctors here long before Obamacare due to insurance agencies. Basically a doctor from some foreign country would open some crappy OBGYN office in a strip cen...

Re: Littoral "Combat" Ships...Bargain, Death Trap, or Both?

You guys realize there hasn't been a surface engagement between a US Navy ship and a foreign enemy ship since WWII right? Well, actually there was one. The USS Simpson blew an Iranian gunboat out of the water in 1988. Other than that you guys want to spend a ton of extra money on a boats that can su...

Re: 2 Navy Boats in Iranian Custody

While it's a serious situation I saw this on Facebook and thought it was hilarious. Those who were in the military will get it, I'm sure.

Re: OC and CC gun grabs

I see this as a problem with many untrained/uninformed people who choose to OC. I think most will probably go about life with no issues but some will eventually have one. The ones I'm thinking of are those who use a cheap holster that has no retention with a regular every day belt. By nature of the ...

Re: Concealed carry in FRANCE?

I saw this on Drudge Report's Facebook feed a few days ago and someone on there, who claimed to speak a little french, said that the man identified himself as a police officer or possibly some kind of military police officer. The person was upfront that they were not fluent but that they were pretty...

Re: Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base and Concealed Carry

JM, the entire old Ellington AFB is now the property of the city of Houston, the us government leases the property for the Joint Reserve Base, this portion falls under the Federal Provision and you cannot carry there hence the name Joint Reserve Base same as you cannot carry a weapon on Lackland no...

Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base and Concealed Carry

Recently all Air and National Guard units were issued a memo stating that carry on guard property was authorized and were even issued guidelines on when and where they can carry, as well as the units responsibilities for dealing with concealed carry. I was in the National Guard years ago and my wife...

Re: Houston has a new liberal mayor by 4000 votes

I live just outside the Houston city limits on the Northwest side of town. I hope and pray that we never get annexed as I'm certain that the only thing that would happen is my taxes would go up drastically while my civil services went down. As it is the county doesn't do much of anything except take...
