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...

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...

Re: SBR, NFA and Trusts

Since the tax stamp can take such a long time, I’d suggest starting the build out as a pistol. That way you can actually get some use out of it while you’re waiting.

Re: Anyone else buying guns, or ammo with stimulus check?

I wanted to invest in another gun, but it would have just ended up at the bottom of some lake.
