Re: Oscars

Haven't watched any of those self-serving award shows in years. Every year we have the People's Choice Awards, the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, the Teen Choice Awards, the Golden Globes, the Critics' Choice Movie Awards, the Tony Awards, the Emmy Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Acade...

Re: One Day Only! 10 Pk Magpul PMAG 30-Rnd Mags $77.99

I visited the MidwayUSA site from their email describing this deal. I decided not to buy the PMAGs, but did decide to order 250 rounds of 150-grain IMI 7.62x51 range ammo packed in an ammo can for $149.99. I placed the order at exactly 17:53. At 17:56 I got the email confirmation with the "we're get...

Re: Actor Bill Paxton dies at age 61

A Fort Worth native, he had a new TV series that just started (I believe just this month) based on the movie Training Day, and played Sam Houston in Texas Rising. His family owned Paxton Lumber Company in Fort Worth and he grew up in a house by the golf course at Shady Oaks Country Club.

I'll be calling my rep again today to ask that he sign on as a sponsor or co-author. He seems more interested in policing emoji's though, so we'll see how it goes. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-39039170 An emoji of the Chilean flag is widely available while one of the Texas flag is no...

Re: Houston West Quadrant Breakfast

I just saw this post and I am disappointed. I live at Mason and I-10 so I would have been there. I will be there next time. Jeepers. You could have walked! :mrgreen: But I couldn't make it, either. Tough timing for me. If I had to pick a Saturday morning, it would be the third Saturday of every mon...

Re: Active shooter drill to test Horseshoe Bay city employees

I've stayed at the Horseshoe Bay Resort many times.

Considering the resort's hundreds of weekly visitors and its huge economic impact on the community, did the drill extend to the resort?

If not, was the drill worth anything at all?

Re: Does anyone has the new bravo DOS Torsion Holster?

i did find what i was looking for ^ please tell what you think on that? Well, first, I'll need to ask--on behalf of all the Forum members--if you have any association with Bravo Concealment. Second, I don't want to dive off into a handgun carry lesson. But what I will say is that, in addition to su...

Re: What type of Ammo do you load in your Home Defense AR

I've recently switched from a carbine to a pistol for HD; put a Streamlight TLR-4 on it. For the gun's dedicated use, I like the option of light, laser, or both with a momentary-on switch activated by my left index finger. I don't expect to ever have need of it outside of 20 yards. Decided on Hornad...

Re: Houston West Quadrant Breakfast

Yep. We got the word around 8 o clock last night. Last week the ICE director came from D.C. to meet with the sheriff and it sounded like we were going to stay. Strangely, he leaves and the sheriff pulls this. Found the first media notification. From ten o'clock last night: http://www.houstonchronic...

Re: Houston West Quadrant Breakfast

I don't know if I'll be able to make it. The sheriff just canned the 287(g) program today and I don't know when we're going to be transferred out. The transfer will be on a Saturday, I just don't know which Saturday and I'll be going to first shift. So Sheriff Gonzalez has made it official? Complet...
