  1. The Pinkertons or the Pinkerton Detective Agency. Interesting Fact, The Pinkerton were banned in Ohio because they had gotten bigger than the US Army and people became fearful that they could be hired as a private mercenary army.
  2. The only way to get away from the "posse of Postal Inspectors" Butch Cassidy: Then you jump first. Sundance Kid: No, I said. Butch Cassidy: What's the matter with you? Sundance Kid: I can't swim. Butch Cassidy: Why you crazy, the fall will probably kill you.

  4. This week, the Texas House Committee on Community Safety held its first public hearing on a number of firearm-related measures, so please contact committee members and urge them to SUPPORT or to OPPOSE these bills as indicated below: Support House Bill 175 (Rep. Matt Schaefer-R) Expands expungement provisions from last session’s constitutional carry law to include persons who were placed on deferred adjudication community supervision for an offense of unlawful carry of a handgun committed prior to the effective date of the 2021 law. House Bill 636 (Rep. Jared Patterson-R) Codifies a 2018 Attorney General opinion to allow election judges who are issued an LTC, to carry handguns in a polling place during early voting and on Election Day. This is a reasonable change to the Texas Penal Code, although NRA-ILA would also support legislation eliminating this unnecessary “gun-free zone” in its entirety. House Bill 1229 (Rep. Cody Harris-R) Prohibits state and child placement agencies from requiring foster parents to disclose specific types of firearms and to report any newly-acquired or relinquished guns in the household. NRA-ILA does not oppose foster parents being asked to disclose whether they own firearms or other weapons, but we do object to them being required to provide specific descriptions or a registry of lawfully-owned guns to a state or child placement agency. House Bill 1760 (Rep. Cole Hefner-R) Addresses roving “gun-free” zones created when school activities take place off-campus in public buildings or venues such as the Capitol, zoos and libraries, by limiting restrictions on firearms possession to actual premises owned by and under control of a school, or locations where high school, collegiate, and UIL activities as described in 46.03(a-1)(2) are taking place. Without this important clarification, the “school activities” provision in 46.03(a)(1) can be misapplied to include anyplace students are ever present or anywhere "educational activities" are taking place off-campus. House Bill 2454 (Rep. Ryan Guillen-R) Creates the offense of knowingly acquiring a firearm for a person that is prohibited from possessing a firearm under state or federal law. “Straw purchases” are already illegal under federal law, and this bill allows state and local law enforcement to charge and prosecute for similar offenses. Oppose House Bill 902 (Rep. Joe Moody-D) Creates the offense of knowingly purchasing a magazine or knowingly receiving a magazine as a loan or gift from another while the actor is prohibited from possessing under state or federal law the type of firearm for which the magazine is designed or made. Extending firearm possession prohibitions to firearm magazines invites the type of private transfer restriction or so-called “universal background check” schemes that gun control advocates seek to impose on firearms and ammunition, which are unenforceable without gun registration. Such plans are even more ineffectual for magazines, as they are not typically serialized or otherwise marked to facilitate a regulatory scheme of this type. House Bill 2076 (Rep. Vikki Goodwin-D) Expands the current state domestic violence firearms prohibition to include "dating relationships:" relying on definitions in the Texas Family Code that exceed the scope of relationships contemplated in federal law to include anyone with whom you've ever had a romantic relationship. Under the current state prohibitions, “boyfriends” and other intimates are already covered if the relationship has an actual “family” or "household" component (children in common, cohabitation, etc.).
  5. Three: Texas, Oklahoma, and Arizonia. But thinking about Wyoming and possibly an international shoot. Only 5 clubs in Texas for me.
  6. That is very close to the shooters perspective. If monthly request a reshoot because obviously needs more practice on that specific stage, but since an annual to just let the time stand and prevent potential conflict . Shooter was still able to win category, but did not know it at the time.
  7. True, but I doubt if those that are "protesting" even know that it is a constitutional right. Our kids are being educated by Tik-Tok, and virtually none have a clue where to find a true news source anymore.
  8. it was a three day annual event and the scores are never world ending, even at EOT.
  9. When I was a student I would have been happy to protest most things if a cute girl asked me or if it involved skipping class.
  10. The only time I have seen that there was a very minor imperfection on the inside end of the barrel.

    Order: Rifle (10) / Pistol (10) / Shotgun (6+) Scenario -) Position 02 (Doorway): Shoot Rifle out of Doorway -) Position 03 (Window): Shoot Pistol -) Position 03 (Window): Shoot Shotgun Targets - 2 -) Position 01 (Window): Shoot Shotgun Targets - 4 Action -) Shooter Shoots Rifle at Position 02, -) Shooter runs to Position 03 and Shoots Shotgun at both Targets, EARNING A PENALTY, -) Shooter runs to Position 01 and Shoots 2 Shotgun Targets, -) While shooter is shucking and reloading the TO realizes he hasn't fired his pistols and tells the shooter to put down shotgun and go back to Position 03 and shoot the pistols. Shooter follows TO instructions even though he believed he should have been allowed to finish shooting the last two shotgun targets and then return to Position 03 to shoot his pistols. It is better to follow the TO instructions when at the firing line when it would not a dangerous action and discuss the specifics later away from the firing line. -) Shooter places shotgun on table and runs to Position 03 and shoot pistols. -) Shooter runs back to Position 01 and shoots last two shotgun targets. Discussion -) Shooter immediately discusses with an RO2 instructor (BIPN) at unloading table who believe that if shooter had not gone back to Position 03 when TO told him, he would have also earned a spirit of the game penalty. -) Shooter believe that he is "entitled" to a reshoot ONLY because the TO increased his overall time by 10+ seconds. It is not the TO's responsibility to stop him from firing in the incorrect order and earning a P, but he should have been allowed to continue shooting in the incorrect order once he started. Shooter decided NOT TO request a reshoot because he didn't feel he should be "rewarded" with a lower time when he was the one that made the first mistake and the TO was making an "honest" attempt to assist the shooter. IMHO -) This is not close to a "Spirit of the Game" issue, he should have been allowed to finish his current action and then rectify the situation. He was not dumping on a target or doing anything other than the stage directions, he was just doing it in a time inefficient manner and earning a P in the process. -) TO could have corrected shooter before shooting at the shotgun targets (great TO), inform the shooter before leaving Position 03 to shoot pistols (Good TO and Shooter has earned P), inform the shooter after shooting shotgun at Position 01 that he hadn't fired his Pistols (Good TO and Shooter earned P and extra exercise), or said nothing since it is the shooter's responsibility (Shooter earned a P and 10 misses). -) But, by changing the shooters actions and increasing his time, the shooter should have been allowed a reshoot if they desired. -) Surprisingly, there were several shooters that almost made the same mistake and picked up their shotgun before firing pistols, but TO's were then prepared and able to rectify. Thoughts?
  12. Anyone have pictures of the targets and stage descriptions?
  13. As hard as Totes is on his gun, he should get a full backup rifle for either him and GV. Of course, it isn't my money.
  14. I remember that formula from Physics, but I also remember the well-known "Taylor Knock Out Index" which was developed by John Taylor, an extremely experienced African hunter. His formula was based on killing thousands of large game animals with nearly any caliber you can imagine. His formula also adjusted for the bullet diameter and referred to it as the "power yardstick" for African rifles. The Taylor KO factor multiplies bullet weight (grains) by muzzle velocity (feet per second) by bullet diameter (inches) and then divides the product by 7,000, converting the value from grains to pounds and giving a numerical value from 0 to ~150 for normal hunting cartridges. Basically, it says that everything else being equal, a bigger impact circle equals a better knockdown capability! I agree with that, but I have never understood why he didn't take into account the exponentiality of the velocity!
  15. A standing static target was left to aim out, but they shots did not have to actually "hit" it, just be fired at it. It is the yellow MU (Make Up) target on the stage 9 schematic.
  16. Sheesh Abilene, what did you do, remove every third frame to decrease the viewing time like they do on TV.
  17. Buy a piece of crap (non-CAS) Miroku '73 and steal the sear from it! Still a bit to replace a small part but might be cheaper than having a custom piece machined.
  18. Interesting, the MAX JAIL TIME is only 18 months IF someone deviates "from known standards, practice and protocol directly caused the fatal death of Hutchins," ... and "By not receiving the required training on firearms, not checking the firearm with the armorer, letting the armorer leave the firearms in the church without being present, deviating from the practice of only accepting the firearm from the armorer, not dealing with the safety complaints on set and/or making sure safety meetings were held, putting his finger on the trigger of a real firearm when a replica or rubber gun should have been used, pointing the firearms at Hutchins and Souza, and the overall handling of the firearms in a negligent manner, Baldwin acted with willful disregard for the safety of others and in a manner which endangered other people, specifically Hutchins and Souza."

  20. Wow, several liberal groups have filed briefs (agreeing with 2nd Amendment advocates) that the latest New York gun control law requiring concealed carry permit applicants to register their social media accounts is unconstitutional (even if they claim the 1st instead of the 2nd). Kathy Hochul's 'overbroad' New York gun law panned by liberals opposing social media registration (msn.com)
  21. I'll take Blue striped Hamilton Dry Goods Pants (NEW- worn once)-38x32- $30.00 shipped.. Scully Shirt- L- $25.00
  22. Deaf people in the next county can hear El Catorce's Gritos!
  23. There is no problem with an FFL (on a National level) accepting a gun from an individual (either in state or not) BUT ........ there are several additional rules and legal hurdles that they have to make sure that they jump through. With today's ATF (one strike you and you are out) looking for ways to remove FFL's from the food chain to "protect Americans" most FFL's do not want to accept the risks. I ask at every LGS that I go to and basically the bigger they are they less likely that they will be willing to do it. I have found a couple and I try to move as much of my business as I can to them.
