Re: Campus Carry -- Where Are We Now?

I'm just an uneducated (regarding the Texas Legislative process) observer, but to me things are looking hopeful. The worry about the house having to vote again on HB910 and the concern about Straus' commitment to bring up Campus Carry in the House are real concerns, but not big ones to me so far. He...

Re: Need a new Bank..

I second the Credit Union idea. We needed to open a couple of accounts for business purposes (basically to handle rental property and expenses) but the local bank had huge (by my standards) fees associated with each separate account. Checked out Randolph-Brooks CU and found they do everything the ba...

Re: What should I do in a situation

The bottom line is, nobody knows for sure what they would do until faced with the actual situation. I'm not too ashamed to admit I literally wet my pants the first time I was shot at while in the military. I understand this completely. I didn't wet my pants the first time I got shot at, but once th...

Re: Can a cop ask you if you're CCW?

It seems to me that the OP's original posting mentioned the penalties for carrying past a valid 30.06 sign. If that's the case, why all the discussion? If it was accidental, get out. If it was intentional, why did you do that? Am I missing something? It wouldn't be the first time, I'm not the most p...

Re: SCR 1

That's a wild assertion you make, my friend . . . . Yes, I am anxious to see what happens when "the Feds threaten to put the squeeze on the redistributions" as you put it. God Bless Texas! :txflag: Those are not such wild assertions. The Feds take a lot of money out of Texas and (currently) send a ...

Re: HB308

Well, I went ahead a few days ago and sent an email to Rep. Larry Phillips, chairman of the Homeland Security & Public Safety Committee which (I believe) is currently holding HB308. I figure it may not do any good, but I reckoned that a polite note would do no harm, either. I thanked him for his aut...

Re: Call-To-Action: HB2405 Gutting TPC §30.06

I emailed Rep. Nevárez also. I don't figure he'll change his mind, but I feel that he should have more exposure to pro-2A folks who aren't threatening him.

Re: Costco Gun Policy

Firearms are controversial. Costco is a public company. By coming out pro-firearm or anti-firearm you're effectively alienating part of your customer base. Costco - at least in the stores near me, doesn't post 30.06. And in terms of membership, my wife got us membership. I believe I eventually show...

Re: Hog hunting questions

Is the .223 too light to shoot the hogs with? Would I be better served using my SKS? I have an opportunity to go on a friends land, and wondering what to bring... .223 is perfect. Hit em behind the ear. They will drop right where they're at. Yep, if you can make the shot, a .223 is quite adequate. ...

Re: CBS 11 just announced

It's all opinion, but it seems that if a sign maker can get the text correct in both English and Spanish, it means that someone read the statute, and if they read the statute it means that they know the letters are to be an inch high. Text of a smaller size hints that perhaps the folks who ordered ...

Re: CBS 11 just announced

While it is true that neither MDA nor any other anti-gun organization has expressly stated that the campaign to repeal or gut TPC §30.06 is the result of OCT's irresponsible tactics, those are the facts. TPC §30.06 was not even on the anti-gun radar until OCT started carrying long guns into stores ...

Re: CBS 11 just announced

There was an article in the Austin paper just after Christmas about this, which specifically named MDA as the complaining party.

Re: Mall security and right to physically detain you

Well part of the issue here is that I'm talking about a CHLer here. Not that we're better but that there is the additional issue of a firearm involved. Unless you pull your gun I don't see the big deal I can if they try a physical search. Thats going to get very bad very fast. I think you're correc...
