Well the last couple of months have been busy and full of ups and downs, the reason why I havenít been on the forum much lately. Got a new job, well same job just different school and district, and that the baby will be a GIRL! Oh Lord, I have a teenage daughter and I now know whatís coming again... but Iím happy, but still shocked that my, once thought ďfinishedĒ family of 2 children will soon be a family of 3 children.

In other news, I canít wait for this summer, need to hit the range again.

I laugh at the fact that there isnít any brand name calling for the shotgun and the assault rifle, but instead of saying two handguns, wait those are Glocks! And 4 guns....My children by age 9 have shot more guns than this guy owned, but thatís the difference between Hawaii and Texas.

I would like to go. Still trying to convince my now pregnant wife that a day away would be good for her.

Love the paint job, what type/kind of paint did you use?

My grandson is a HUGE Bernie supporter/fan.

He told me he does not like to work.
He prefers to eat cereal and watch cartoons.

He is 6.
I suggest he move to Austin or San Francisco in 12 years. They understand that attitude.

He is smarter than a millennial, I heard last week millennials donít like cereal, itís too much work

Handguns and Revolvers / Re: Best concealed carry position?

New meaning to pocket carry

Never owned a yeti. If I was out camping or something, would just buy whiskey and not beer. Whiskey is just fine at room temperature, most American beer not so much. Just eliminate the need for ice. 

The last time a cell phone of mine had a song ringtone was 2005. It was a flip phone, LG I think, I also thought I was cool to have a camera on a phone back then. That phone could get the internet but I never used it, at that time I never thought I would use a little stupid phone to search the internet. Now I only use the phone for internet and donít own a computer. With all of these new advancements in our society, I still wish for the 1980s.

I now want to go and shop there and fill a cart full of crap then at the register be like ďoh thatís right this company is full of political BS, never mind Iíll go to academy sports and outdoors!Ē

Not worth your effort. 
A similar tactic in the 60's and 70's by protester at Safeway when they wouldn't play ball with the unions.
Union supporters would go fill a cart with frozen foods, park it in an obscure part of the store, then walk out. The amount of spoilage was negligible to Safeway's bottom line, and the tactic made the unions and sympathizers look pretty sleazy.

And if they identify you, they very well may put a restraining order on you preventing you from getting within X00 feet of any Dicks.

Trust me a restraining order would be a blessing! As that Iím never within a mile or more near a Dickís. I donít like people and companies that are dicks.

Get well soon Alte Schule, no good to have a fine looking weapon and canít hit the range! Wishing you a fast recovery!

Off Topic Discussion (NON FIREARM RELATED) / R. Lee Ermey died.

Just read the news tonight, the marine turned actor R. Lee Ermey passed way Sunday. Damn shame, good guy, and he was only 74 years old. RIP and remember, ďYou little scumbag! I've got your name! I've got your ass! You will not laugh! You will not cry! You will learn by the numbers and I will teach you!Ē Boy have I always wanted to tell my students that line!

General Gun Discussion / Tomball gun show this weekend
« on: April 12, 2018, 10:18:16 PM »
Just FYI, for you north Houston, Tomball, cypress, woodlands people; there is a gun show this weekend April 14-15. Itís at the VFW on Alice Rd just a mile west of HWY249. Itís small, but good deals can be made. I traded a $350 gun for a $500 gun at the last show. Last time they had a nice selection of knives too! I might just get me one of those knives the nice lady was selling, if sheís there again.

At least enough to completely fill a large room, so about 4,000.

Thanks guys! Iíll start taking bets soon on which sex the kiddo will be.

(Btw, there are only two genders in my world aka the real world.)
Might be twins. ;)

Donít say it! It runs in the family.... If itís twins I get boomer! Haha

Well I guess I fired my ďgunĒ off a little too much. My wife and I are expecting our third child sometime this fall! We thought we were done, my youngest will be 10 and my oldest will be 14 when the baby is born. Iíve been in a state of shock for the entire week.

Well guys as a teacher if I was reading the 2nd page here for a grade, I would give all a big F, for off topic... lol. Seriously if you would like to help a teacher and donít want to give money or raise taxes, Iíll give you my address and you can mail me any spare ammo that you might have (if itís a common caliber I have a gun to shoot it)! I would gratefully accept it and then hit the range. 

Do they consider revolvers as semi-auto handguns?

JD let's ask ArmedTexan, "do you work more than 37 hours per week?" and  "Do you get paid overtime for hours over 37/40?

I've yet to meet a teacher that doesn't spend serious unpaid hours after class grading and planning.
I've yet to meet a (non-volunteer /  reserve) officer that doesn't get paid overtime.


I wish I worked just 40 hours a week. Most of yíall donít know that teachers are now under a new evaluation system, itís called T-TESS. We are evaluated on many in school/classroom things as it should be, but one section is now based on how many school related activities that we participate in. This counts prom, graduation, Saturday tutoring, homecoming, basketball/football/baseball/soccer/etc games. While sometimes a game gets interesting and might be fun...but itís still a few hours after school letís out and then a few hours of the game before I know Iím home at 8:00 at night. I know some of yíall also get home at 8:00pm but are you also at work by 6:00? And are you off the contracted hours for 5 hours? This is a big reason why Iím in search for a closer school from home next year. I like teaching history, I like educating the few kids that want to learn, but in all seriousness my own children are the ones I rather be with watching play in their games.
