Re: What is a "tract" for purposes of the 10-acre rule?

I suggest you talk to a real estate attorney first and ask if (1) you can structure a land transaction such that you can combine the two tracts in the manner you desire and (2) if such a combination would allow you to discharge a firearm. The reason for my suggestion is that I have seen ordinary civ...

Re: Thunder Gun Range in Conroe - from great to terrible

My son and I shot there this past weekend and we were accompanied by his girlfriend and her sisters and her father. Everytime I leave there, I am disappointed in my experience.

Re: Possible home invasion shooting at Walden on Lake Housto

... I am confident that some plaintiffs attorney will encourage the ladies to file civil suits for millions of dollars in damages that they will never be able to spend when they are in prison. Nope.

Re: Possible home invasion shooting at Walden on Lake Housto

"I saw a girl run out of the house and a guy chasing after her walking speed," said witness Brian Valera. "He was very, very angry. He yelled very threateningly at them." Here was my concern for our shooter. Brian's not a great witness for his neighbor. My other concern for our shooter is probably ...

Good luck with it. Yes, I have his direct contact info. I don't use it often, but when I do, I do get a non-canne...

I live in the Houston area and most gun ranges and shops are pushing the CHL classes and the basic safety classes. What's next for me? What do you suggest? You may want to tak...

What's Next??

I have a question regarding training and preparedness. I took the NRA basic pistol safety class. I took the CHL class with my son and we obtained our CHL permits. I get to the range about 3x/month to practice with both of my handguns. However, I do not think that two classes and regular range time i...
