Thanks Stephen

Thanks for the report Stephen. Many folks probably recognize Stephen from 1911forum.com and perhaps other boards as well. Stephen is widly known as "Mr. HiPower," a title that is richly deserved. I have his book on HiPowers, as well as his assembly/disassembly charts, and have found both to be an ex...

UPDATE: HB185 RE: HUNTING BLINDS & FEEDERS

Here's one we don't have to worry about. Scott Campbell (R) filed HB185, a bill that would, with limited exceptions, prohibit the use of hunting blinds and/or feeders within 150 yds. of a fence line dividing property owned by different owners. In response to a request from TSRA, Rep. Campbell will w...

We can't afford to get complacent, but I think we'll be able to defeat this bill. As with any anti-gun bill, we need to be ready to contact our legislators, if the need arises. I'll post a notice in the Legislative Section when the bill is filed and will update its status, as the session progresses....

PSC has two center fire rifle ranges and one .22 rimfire only range. You can stand to shoot on one of the center fire rifle ranges (Range 1), but not on the bench rest range. The bench rest range (Range 4) is 200 yds. and Range 1 has berms at 50, 100, 150, 200 & 300 yds.

Have ya given anymore thought or looked into adding avatars? Honest answer is no. I'm getting ready for a trial starting on Monday, Jan. 10th, another one on Jan. 31st and that's eating up almost all of my time. I'll try to look into it later this month, or the first of February. Sorry for the dela...

Didn't see that the first time. Looks like you have thought of everything, Charles. Mike: I can't take the credit for any of the features, it's all in the software.

Blooper reel?

BTW, if you video your matches? I'm sure some would pay to see that. :lol: I wish we had videotaped our matches. You could make a training film from my bloopers alone! And the cell phone reload had to be one of my best. I went around for a month with a floppy antenna, just as a reminder that people...

Ed's Red Experiment - Long

Let me see, how can I make this remotely CHL-related? Oh yeah, this board is about carrying a gun. If you carry a gun you need to practice. If you practice, the gun’s going to get dirty and a dirty gun needs to be cleaned. There you go; now it’s “on topic.� Like many of you, I love to shoot ...

I carry 1911's, either my Thunder Ranch Special, or a SS Colt Commander. I use a Sparks NP-1 holster during the week when I'm in a suit and either a Sparks VM-II or Sparks #1 Heritage (both IWB's) when not in a suit or wearing a jacket. Usually one extra mag in a Galco QMC (clip-on) when in a suit; ...

You are correct, you can have a loaded long gun in your car. Beware, there will be a bill filed in the 2005 session that would make carrying a long gun in your car illegal, without a CHL. I'll post a notice in the 2005 Texas Legislative Session when it's filed.

the unilateral agreement is no bad thing. Several states recognize texas and other state licenses although texas is not reciprocal with them. I agree! We had too many years with little or no action. In fact, Texas' delay in negotiating an agreement with Oklahoma prompted that State to change its CH...
