Re: New to this forum!

Welcome to Texas. I always have a pistol in my truck. I drive an F-150 and bought a Console Vault which installs inside the console and very secure. Highly recommend this product but you have to check if they make one for your vehicle. I am in industrial sales and generally don't carry when I'm on s...

Re: Hearing Protection Act of 2017

I was at SHOT Show. The consensus of suppressor manufacturers that I talked to was that the shelves would be empty the day the bill is signed and prices would skyrocket. Eventually the price would stabilize, hopefully much lower with others entering the market, as supply caught up with demand.

Re: Need a good cowboy hat

+1 for American. Bought at the Hat Store in Houston before I moved away. Bought my latest straw (Stetson) at Paris Hatters in San Antonio. Both are good stores.

I agree with the comment that the number of X's is a better comparison within the brand rather than from one brand to another.

Haven't been to this mall but every Kay's Jewelry is posted 30.06/30.07.

Re: Shooting Situation at Rolling Oaks Mall San Antonio

Irony is that Kay's Jewelry* is posted 30.06 and 30.07. Can't believe the perps ignored the signs!

Re: Do you refuse to do business with 30.06 & 30.07 businesses?

I see 30.07 in a different light. As someone posted earlier in this thread, i don't see 30.07 by itself as anti-gun. A good example is the Gringo restaurant chain in Houston. The owner is very pro-gun and 2A but, because of the previously mentioned group, has posted his restaurants 30.07. His son e...

Re: New sights recommendation for S&W Shield

I really like the Ameriglo CAP sights. I tried them on a Glock 19 because I didn't like their stock sights. Liked them so much, I put them on my Shield. Front sight is green tritium which stands out in the daylight. The rear is plain (I don't care for three dots as want my eyes drawn to the front si...

Re: Do you refuse to do business with 30.06 & 30.07 businesses?

I will avoid anyone who posts 30.06, with the exception of medical, as they all seem to be posted. I view them as anti-gun, although may just be ignorance. Those who utilize the Texas3006.com app have seen the proliferation of 30.07 as well as 30.06 signs since the beginning of last year. I firmly b...

Re: Optics

I've used Optic Planet before. I use LaRue mounts exclusively on all my optics. I bought my last Aimpoint along with the mount from LaRue. I am sold on Aimpoint for anything I'm betting my life on. For my AR-15 22, I've bought one of Primary Arms red dots and have been happy.

Re: A heads up on Kalifornia

Hildabeast won the popular vote but just under 3 million votes. She won California by 4 million. If this election was not the Poster Child for the reason behind the Electoral College, I don't know what is.

Re: How do you like my new signature line?

I have contacted Kyle Biedermann's office as well. I had a similar response but am giving him the benefit of the doubt for now. He ran on strong 2A commitment. As newly elected, he hasn't been sworn in yet. A search for my representative still shows the RINO that he defeated.

Re: Suggest Mfg & Grain Size JHP's For S&W M&P 15-22

I've had my AR15-22 for several years. The manual at that time had a list of recommended and not recommended ammo. One not recommended was "any subsonic ammo". I bought a suppressor for the rifle and sampling of subsonic ammo to see if I would have any trouble with cycling. All have cycled flawlessl...

Re: Legal Definition of Shouldering

My understanding (FWIW) was that the ATF originally ruled an AR pistol with Sig brace was a pistol, not an SBR. Supposedly they kept getting inquiries, "are you SURE it's a pistol?" This caused them to re-evaluate their position and modify their ruling. I bought one in Nov '14. When all this dust ki...

Re: This is extra wishful...51% changes

I'd love to see this changed. I've had two instances (that I know of) where I carried inside a 51% location and didn't see the sign until I was leaving. May have had grounds for a defense but still was the in violation. One was a wine store in Gruene. Have never seen a liquor store posted so didn't ...
