Re: Letter received from Cornyn

I recognize we have differing opinions on this important matter…. What did you say to him? Asked him to not legislate any new, additional laws related to firearms and I specifically objected to "red flag" laws.. About the only thing he’s mentioned lately that I could get behind is opening...

Re: NRA Lawsuit

Apparently a ransomware group is claiming to have hacked the NRA.

That might make it difficult for them to provide any documents under subpoena.

Re: Deliberately uncover a firearm if being harassed?

Now, I have asked myself since getting my LTC what would I have done I that she exact situation if I would have had my gun on me. I don't think I would have ever exposed it at all and think most definitely I would not have taken it out of the holster. Reason being that while he verbally threatened ...

Re: Constitutional Hearings

After Abbott signed the bill, I tried to do a deep dive on the bill itself. I gave up 21 pages in. Texas has been so restrictive on carry for so many decades, across so many chapters of law, that it's a huge mess. I predict that even after September 1, 2021, people will continue being arrested when...

Re: BLM Disruption in Plano

My CHL instructor said something that stuck with me. “If you point a gun at me, I will consider it a threat, and will respond appropriately.”

Re: ATF powerpoint parody on firearms (funny but true)

Hehe... I think they got something wrong, though. That 14.5" barrel AR pistol with a front vertical grip should be a "firearm," no? I thought it was supposed to be an AOW only if the OAL is < 26 inches. An AR with a barrel that long would be well over 26 inches. It's so simple🤪 You’r...

A tale my brother told me some years ago: When he was stationed at Key West, he oversaw the base shooting range. They had some arrangement with local law enforcement to do qualifications on the Navy range. One officer came in for his annual qualification with his 9mm and a .380 BUG, just as he had d...
