  1. But it does eliminate a lot of places. Might consider the Sportsman Warehouses in Las Cruces and the Cabelas (one of the better ones the only time I stopped there) in El Paso. Might stop at some Pawn shops in small towns, every once in a while I find a gem, but mostly overpriced junk.
  2. Where in Texas? The Width of Texas is greater than the distance from El Paso to the Pacific Ocean.
  3. So 400 yards for the 1911? I hope it is the size of a barn door!
  4. Yes, but it is like being hit by a skunk, it takes a long time after you escape to get the stink out.
  5. I saw the phone number, but for some reason they didn't answer at 10:00 on a Saturday! The college in Oklahoma charges $300 for a 1-week class. Pretty reasonable, the cost of travel/lodging/food would be far more. Doubt if I do it, but an interesting idea.
  6. Living in Hawaii, it was called "Maui Wowi" or "Kona Gold" depending on which island it was grown on. I think the only person that tried to sell me some, said "Hey you want something good?"
  7. The Texas Department of Public Safety will now issue License To Carry for 18 to 20 year-old adults. The Department of Public Safety announced that they will be issuing LTCs to all qualifying adults ages 18 and up. This became possible when Judge Mark Pittman ruled in the North Texas Court of Appeals that it was a violation of the 2nd Amendment to restrict 18 to 20 year-old adults from participating in the same rights as other adults. Multiple lawsuits have been filed against the ATF recently. With Michael Cargill’s win in the Federal Fifth Circuit against the bumpstock bans, more Texans are stepping up to the plate. At least three cases have been filed to challenge the unconstitutional actions by the ATF banning pistol braces on AR15 pistols. A fourth one is soon to be filed by Gun Owners of America. As is normally the case, Texas leads the way for the rest of the nation. In the Texas Legislature, more gun bills have been filed than ever before. As of today, over 100 gun bills have been filed in the Texas House and Senate. GOA Texas is tracking these bills closely. Currently, 84 anti-gun bills have been filed. While they are unlikely to pass, we will keep you updated if they are progressing through the legislative process. Several legislators, including Senator Bob Hall and Representatives Matt Schaefer, Briscoe Cain, Cody Harris, and Jared Patterson are leading the charge on pro-gun bills filed. Please thank these legislators for their 2A support. Last session, the Suppressor Freedom bill was signed into law. We have a bill to include Short Barreled Rifles and Short Barreled Shotguns into that same language. It will give us the legal ability to challenge the ATFs unconstitutional laws that were created in the National Firearms Act of 1934. GOA Texas is asking all citizens to rebuke Senator John Cornyn for breaking his oath to the Constitution multiple times. John Cornyn over the last few years has advocated for anti-gun policies such as red flag laws and more restrictions on firearm purchases. His latest vote for the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act is a slap in the face to Americans. The Act was signed into law by President Joe Biden and forces a delay in rifle and shotgun purchases for 18 to 20 year-old adults.
  8. I used to only use CC for the convenience and the ability to put off paying for 45 days (when interest actually paid something). Now I use almost exclusively cash because I am tired of ALL of my data being sold!
  9. I thought the SliXsok Pistol Case was a little expensive, but I use and like it. SliXsok Pistol Case designed to protect your pistols while traveling (slixprings.com)
  10. This has already created a bit of a controversy at major Matches.
  11. I finished 1st in WRANGLER (out of two) at an annual competition and it didn't meet the "minimums" because the majority of the people there were competing in "Senior" categories. Don't really care, but out of principle there should always be awards for the BASE categories. Not so sure about the Lady award for ages 120-124 that shoots Frontier cartridges in a double duelist fashion with an outlaw shooting stance, but she probably should to just for showing up.
  12. Shoot whatever you want! This sport is one of few that I feel is more for the enjoyment of the sport than the competition (and I am very very competitive at other things).
  13. That was quick, I guess I am dead.
  14. Something that hasn't been mentioned much, was that the AD Dave Halls who pled guilty and is getting no jail time, was already fired from another film set (Freedom’s Path) for a NEGLIGENT discharge which injured a crew member. Once is bad, but twice???? 'Rust' assistant director Dave Halls fired from past gig over another 'unexpected' gun discharge (nypost.com)
  15. Baldwin is double screwed. As the Producer he changed the standard definition of the Armorer job to include handling many props that were not firearms as well. This is extremely unusual, and most armorers would have (and I believe that at least one did) refused the job. She took the job because she was young, naive, and wanted to get some credentials for future jobs. Many of the crew had already walked off the job due to "unsafe working conditions," and that was because of decisions made by the producers. She was busy handling other props instead of the firearm at the time of the discharge. I don't know if she even knew that the gun would be used for rehearsal at that time, however nobody else should have had access to the gun if she wasn't there to unsecure it and then observe the handling of the firearm until it was safely secured again.
  16. Not some type, almost for sure "ANTI-GUN" related community service. I can see the TV promos now, "Woe is me, see how evil guns can hurt law-abiding gentlemen like me." The only reason this has not already been decided (even if not announced) is because it was in New Mexico and not California!
  17. Interesting, David Halls ("cold gun") who is almost as guilty as Baldwin, will only serve six months of probation and the armorer who wasn't present may have a mandatory minimum of five years in jail. I agree with the Special Prosecutor who said that if any of the three "had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.”
  18. My understanding is that unless they reformulate the powder it is (and will be) illegal for "Australian Munitions" to make it in Australia. It isn't just Trail Boss, but several Australian made powders. There was a strong rumor that they were going to license the formula out to another company to make it in the United States in late 2023/24 timeframe. Don't know if this is still progressing.
  19. But I do, send the funds to me and whatever you want I will send to you posthaste.
  20. Comes from factory with a short-throw kit!
  21. And this is after they DIGITIZED the process so that it could be approved much faster than the previous paper edition which was much harder for the government to sort and accidentally release to the media.
  22. Is there now a CAS group on Oahu? I thought the only one was on Maui.
  23. I sign up for all the free stuff that I can get physically mailed to me by the opposition. I feel that everything that costs them a buck, means they have one less buck to spend on something that I detest more!
