Re: Shirt Front Buttoned or Unbuttoned when Carrying at 3:30 - 4:00?

IMHO, you have to decide what's important to you. Leaving the shirt unbuttoned leaves a draw that is SLIGHTLY faster than lifting the shirt. It does take less practice to get comfortable with just sweeping your shirt with your strong hand and you have to practice the two handed technique with the bu...

Re: Speaker Bonnen's betrayal of Texas gun-owners

If support can be found, I'd be happy to present Mr. Bonnen with a primary challenge. He lives in the wrong district to turn his back on gun owners!

Re: SB 403 - Exemptions for Certain Government Officials

I am opposed to this on the basis of special privilege. How about exemptions for law abiding citizens? :iagree: Government officials are the employees of the average citizen. If there is a difference in rights, then they should have fewer rights than their employers, never more. :iagree: x2 Special...

Not getting excited

I'm trying to be involved, but I'm having trouble getting any energy up for this year's session. I just don't see any major advancements happening this year. I don't see libs having enough of a foothold to significantly reduce gun rights either. Stickland's unlicensed carry bill is DOA (as it probab...

Re: Supreme Court to take up NY gun rights case

Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm interpreting this to have little to no effect on the rest of the country, this will be a narrow decision that only impacts New York! Right? While the decision could be narrow, it could have a greater reach. Currently the NY/NJ port authority is interpreting federal l...

Re: HB 357 - Unlicensed Carry (Stickland)

So, if Constitutional Carry is approved, then what would be the advantage to having an LTC? No NICS check for buying guns, reciprocity with other states, Federal GFSZA exemption. Possibly exclusion from 30.06 and 30.07, depending on how its written. Not with Stickland's bill. But I have heard that ...

Re: Dennis Bonnen Elected Speaker of the Texas House

This is my personal opinion and is worth exactly what you paid for it. Bonnen is from the 25th district in Brazoria county. This district is very much a libertarian leaning conservative district. Becoming Strauss 2.0 would quickly lead to legitimate primary challenges. I'll be watching as closely as...

Re: Mercy Killing of Animals

Upon dispatching, one should also process and eat said animal. Not Legal. Supposed to let the game warden or sheriff deputy pick it up and take to a processor. The meat goes to various government run schools for orphans, deaf and blind, etc. I was kidding. But the warden can give you permission to ...

Re: QuikTrip hiring 'hybrid employees' who can work while armed to deter crime, keep customers safe

ELB, I'm resistant to new/old corporate speak. I recall when 'interpersonal relationship' came out and it made me gag. Changing the word 'Personnel' to 'human resources' also made me gag. Or now rather a dated term -'win-win' gag... And my list goes on, but I'm sure you get my curmudgeonly point. W...

Re: California bar shooting leaves 12 dead

Very tragic on many levels. My condolences to the friends and family of these victims. More gun laws are needed in California as concealed carry laws do not prohibit the licensed carrying of a gun in a bar as long as the customer does not drink alcohol. Obviously that law needs to change. Can't bel...

Exit polling is not looking good for Cruz

Robert Frances is carrying 98% of the deceased vote.
The dead always vote Democrat.
I may have held my nose when I voted for Trump, but Dad turned over in his grave when he voted for Beto
