Re: Open Carry impact

You hit the nail on the head. It is a very fine line. I understand you don't like that it is this way (how do you think LEOs feel, who have to walk this fine line all day every day?), but the LEOs don't make the rules - most simply do their best to abide by them while pushing right up to the edge o...

Re: Here we go again

Anybody have any good ideas for Open Carry 2017 t-shirts? Yes. Don't make nor wear one at all. Open carry is ultimate red herring and wedge issue within the pro-gun crowd. No one can really articulate a reason why it is so necessary or important (other than "because: rights" or "because other state...

Re: Why one cop carries 145 rounds of ammo on the job

Why carry 10+1 in the gun with each gun rather than a full capacity magazine in the gun and the 10 round as the second backup? For that matter why not have 3 full capacity magazines when carrying? For the G27, 10 rounds is actually with a +1 mag extension. It can only hold that number in a standard...

Gun control crowd has high hopes for Hillary

Nothing most of us don't already know, but this lays out precisely why Hillary would be horrible for gun rights.

Re: Starting Police Academy

Keep checking eBay for Safariland duty holsters. Bunch of basket weave no light 6360 Sig holsters under $50 right now. But w/ light will pop up sooner or later if you keep checking.

Re: Open Carry impact

I did not "acknowledge that it would be harassment" positive contact," while possibly annoying or even borderline harassing, would look like this: And you obviously don't grasp the difference because you still call the scenario a "stop" and it is not a "stop". It's a series of questions asked which...

Re: Why one cop carries 145 rounds of ammo on the job

That article had a profound effect on my what-to-carry decisions when I first read it a couple years ago.

Re: Open Carry impact

I'm suggesting your premise is preposterous. A LEO making a voluntary/consensual contact is NEVER prohibited. The fact you can't understand the difference between consensual and detained is your problem, not the cop's. A non-LEO citizen can REQUEST your ID too. And you can tell anyone (cop or other...

Anyone who didn't see petty bickering coming from Patrick isn't paying attention. Jerry Patterson should be our Lt. Gov., but I only got to vote once :banghead:

Re: Open Carry impact

...But a voluntary/consensual contact (see the give-n-take hypothetical scenario/script I wrote a few posts back) is not a stop/detention.

Re: OCT Pro-Gun or Pro-Gun Control?

I'm sure you're pretty steamed up at my comments, but let's switch to "my Bill," HB308. In my view, HB3218 last session and HB308 this session are the two most important bills filed on behalf of Texas gun owners in 20 years. We've passed many great bills and have made great strides in expanding Sec...
