Re: Well I did it,,,I have converted to Glock

I Don't want anyone to think I have sworn off 1911's I will continue to have them in my gun safe, but let me just say that in my holster on my hip sits a G-17. I am glad that you are happy with that pistol and putting it to good use. i was the same way about Glocks until I got that 17 and then had ...

Re: New CHL holder

I think the stiffener makes a difference in places where you have to drop your pants (like the bathroom). :shock: :shock: That raises a question I have never even considered... what do you do with your pistol when you do drop trouw and it's in a public restroom stall where the divider walls don't g...

inertia = mass * velocity... I am guessing you were speaking practicly.

Re: Off to see the wizard!

I faxed them the additional papers the day after I received their letter (44 days later) and was told that NO...

Re: DPS Carry?

Ok. Now I'm confused. :headscratch We're going to the DPS office in Hurst (thats around Fortworth) off of I-820. It's where you go to get renewals and new licenses. So...? I was just in that office a couple of weeks ago. I don't recall seeing any signs posted about firearms, although I do remember ...

Re: Need help. Can't do IWB for a while

Is this going to be a more or less permanent condition? I ask because I have back issues myself (which is why I know how to spell "sciatic" :mrgreen: ), including having had extensive surgery to fuse vertebrae, etc. Your orginal post made me go put on my Fobus OWB just a minute ago and start carryin...

Re: DPS Carry?

If it's not posted.......you can carry...... :roll: It does look like a LE Station and you can carry in ANY LE Station in the State of Texas as long as you remain in the public area. You have to disarm if you go inside past the normal public area of any LE Agency. So how do you do that without brea...

nitrogen , I think you did the right thing by skedaddling like you did, but I would offer a couple of comments on your own situation... 1) Unless you are in a job in which the risk of exposure to aggressive jerks is higher than normal, say LEO or Paramedic, or something like that, it is NOT normal ...

Re: Why do people like to try and mess with me? Happened AGAIN!

I'm not a guy that people normally try to mess with. I don't know why that is, except that maybe its perhaps I usually fly low and avoid the radar, and when I do interact with others, it's usually with a smile and a friendly disposition. But at age 55, I have run into 2 or 3 bozos over the years. It...

Re: NRA Presidential endorsement...

Huckabee hasn't quit yet! Could the NRA endorse him? :coolgleamA: They certainly could, but given that Romney is out (and he was in 2nd place behind McCain in delegates), would the NRA benefit by not building bridges with McCain now? If the NRA throws its support to Huckabee, then that is one less ...
