    I don't know. Why are you here? Do you OC? Are you an advocate of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms? Do you just like to talk guns? Are you an anti?

    Welcome.
    Of course anti's should expect to get flamed and wear asbestos/nomex for protection.
    I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

    Welcome to the club in not knowing much about advocating. Very few of us did, I imagine. One thing you could do, if you have a mind to, is connect with other groups in Texas and see if they need help come the next state legislature's session. If there is Texas open carry group, they might be glad for the extra hands.

    An "anti" is an "anti-gunner". A gun-control supporter. Also known as a gun-grabber, gun-controller, hoplophobe (fear of guns), or dimwit.

    My second gun was a Ruger Old Army in stainless steel. Had tons of fun with it. Probably shoulda bought stock in Speer for all the .451 lead balls I sent down range.

    did you know that it is unlawful to open carry in texas?"

    So THAT'S what all the strange looks are about at the Sizzler.

    Yea, I know. that's why I live up in CO now, Open Carry in Texas = I see dead people. Perry thinks he can start Texamerica down there without water. Irresponsible. Yeah, I now a lot about Texas Law, it's why I moved. So is "location" where you are right now, and not where you're from?

    Been open carrying since I got out of the Academy, including a SAW and a TOW gun back when, but nowadays it's just the Redhawk. Boot size 13, and I dress left.

    @Citizen: Been thinking about picking up a Blackhawk in a little bit. Damn fine weapon. lotsa folks always talk about them being too clunky, but I meself like them better then them plastic autos they got now. Rugers feel real natural. People don't mess.

    I know my Uncle Bill, who's about 87, and Jerry and Mike. Sorry to be a wiseass, but I'm a Gemini. I suppose by LEO, you mean a cop or a ranger or something? Do you guys interrogate every new poster like this, and roundabout imply calling the cops on them, or am I not getting you right? Who do you know? America's only got 300 million people in it...

    Nope not really, but the town rang a familiar bell being a major college area - football is a big thing there - and knowing a couple of people from earlier years that live in the area. Most people from out of state probably wouldn't recognize the town name.

    One of my friends was All State Texas HS quarterback who in his 2nd or 3rd year in college had his leg broken ending a promising future in the game.

    You jump to conclusion about reporting - what's that about?

    Here are a few of the OCers in your area. Maybe you all can stir up a meet 'n greet. A lot more info can be shared over a meal the can be done in a month of postings.

    I think I get it. I said "Academy", and should have said "Citadel" Don't reckon I know your friend with the leg. I didn't go to normal school school, or college. Went to Grade school, then went to Academy, then to Grenada, for starters.

    I had a buddy whose Blackhawk we used to shoot. Forty-four, I vaguely recall, but can't be sure. Lotsa a fun, though.

    I've been thinking of maybe getting a GP100. I like the idea of double-action if I might carry it for self-defense.

    I agree about tupperware. Plastic is for storing food. Gimme something solid for a gun.


    (full disclosure: I'm not really all that opposed to plastic-framed guns. I understand Glocks are great. They just don't fit my hand, so I passed them over. And, I don't care much for the triggers on other plastic guns.)

    Smith's M&P isn't a bad plastic gun either. I would rather have that over a glock and a glock over a ruger any day.... But thats just my opinion.

    lots to wonder and question about your posts and responses...
    its always reasonable to measure and gauge your tales based on your claimed Location...
    full disclosure would have cleared up any confusion about your situation.
    glad to hear you dress left, but , does that mean youre a liberal?
    and you have big feet, Wow,,, always try to keep that foot out of your mouth!

    i was honestly concerned that you may ignorantly have been breaking the carry law
    of texas, and i wanted to warn you before it could bite you in the ass.

    i am an old man, sitting in my easy chair. i really cant compete in a ******* contest,
    so i will defer to the younger and stronger, but i will try to give good counsel and advice.

    Keep on wonderin then.

    tales? claimed location? full disclosure? liberal? foot in my mouth? ignorantly?

    Right neighborly of you. And here I haven't even looked at where you live or anything yet*. I'm getting old myself, but somewhere along the way, (Think it was push-up #258) I learned about being polite, and minding my own business. That's some solid counsel and advice. Why, what's your "situation"? Mine's being too old to drive tanks and go fight in wars anymore, so now I'm here talking to you on the internet.

    by the way, open carry may be illegal in Texas, but it never was on my part of it. "LEOs" never had trouble with that, and it never came up. Lest there was a break in or something, and even then it was no trouble to handle that, cept for the druggie breaking in.

    * Don't plan to. Gotta go to the range.
