If you haven't already...

Now's the time to get a good holster/belt, spend time at the range, and start carryin' around the house to get used to it.

It'll help pass the time, and you'll be more prepared once the plastic arrives.

:cool:

I wish my boss would tell me that I could carry but not draw my weapon. I would always have it with me if I needed it. And if I needed it, I wouldn't care one bit about the fact that he had told me not to use it. I don't want to risk my job just to have it with me for the extremely small chance that...

Lets say a student is carrying on campus. He is sitting under a tree studying. He hears that there is a shooter in a building he is close to. He goes in, finds the BG and engages and neutralizes the threat before the campus police get there. Is he in violation of the law on this? Or should he just ...

The decision to carry a weapon and the responsibility that comes with it are major life decisions. I can't imagine making a decision like that without involving my wife.

Status flipped to..... Application Completed - license issued or certificate active today!!!

41 days from when I mailed it. Not too shabby. Now I just have to wait for it to arrive. Why do I think the next few days are going to be longer than the last 41? ;-)

Pardon me for my stupidity, what's the harm do this cause if I do carry the CHL badge concealed? Only to reveal it in situation that is to identify I am not a bad guy. The problem is that revealing the badge does not "identify that you are not a bad guy." The crooks can buy them too. You can show y...

He's a German Shepherd. Aside from that, he's the kind that likes to eat the carpet... but we're workin' on that ;-)

If you are happy with the breeder, would you share with me where your pup came from?

That's kind of like asking, "What's the best flavor ice cream?" :razz: Plenty of good advice so far in the thread. I highly recommend testing several different guns via rentals if at all possible in your area. I'll throw in a personal plug for the gun that will be my carry weapon when the plastic ar...

New home security system!

I would like to introduce Winchester Magnum vom Anlaufstelle. On occasions that don't require such formality, he'll simply be Magnum. 7 1/2 weeks old... just came home from the breeder's with us today. He came from the "W" litter... so the W_____ vom Anlaufstelle part was pretty much set. We had dec...

DFWShooters.org forum?

Hello, I was looking at the cross timbers website trying to get as much info as I can about possibly starting to shoot IDPA and thought I would scope out their forums. So I followed the link on their page and it took me to the dfwshooters.org forums. I signed up and got an email saying that an admin...
