Pretty much all the shows affiliated with Jack Webb (Adam-12, Emergency!, Dragnet).

I drive 59 and West Belt every weekday to work. I'm a helluva lot more worried about getting hit by some idiot texting/talking on their mobile phone than I am of catching an over-hyped flu bug!

I keep an AK with 80 rounds and a Mexican blanket in my truck. I figure I can sort out most anything else that arises........

I just picked up a Samsung laptop at MicroCenter up in Houston a couple of months ago. I've been very pleased with it. It's a Windows machine, but I may add Linux later. I also carry 2 laptops for work, a Dell 7400 and an HP. Both are okay for what I use them for, but I prefer a 17" screen over 15" for personal use.

Been watching "Dublin Murders" on Starz lately. Decided to pick up the audiobooks from Audible  as well.

Never pay attention to gas prices. Both my Ford F350 & VW Passat are diesels. The wife drives a gasser (Ford Expedition), but she buys her own fuel.

Diesel around Richmond/Rosenberg can be had for $2.49

Handguns and Revolvers / Re: Poll - Favorite Gun Manufacturer?!?!

I confess. I'm an FN guy, though I do like S&W revolvers & Beretta shotguns.

Too bad I can't vote "Glock" twice.

It's not the pistols I loathe (they're actually not bad) as much as the incessant BS that comes out of Glock fanboys.

What did you think about the non-meat Impossible Whopper?

Isn't that like going to a whorehouse and ordering an inflatable doll?

General Gun Discussion / Re: Poll: "*Arsenal*" or pathetic?

Arsenal?!?! I'll bet you'd find more firepower in a UT sorority house!

(Mind you....those Tri-Delts can be pretty vicious if you try to take away the keys to their BMWs!) 

Handguns and Revolvers / Re: Debunking 1911 Myths.
« on: November 19, 2019, 09:31:00 PM »
I own two Kimber 1911s, an Ultra (3") & a Custom (5"). The only reason I don't EDC them is because in a quick draw situation, I find that my large hands will sometimes not disengage the grip safety. Yes, I know I can train for that, but I generally carry an FNX-45 or an FN 509. If I had to turn one in due to a shooting, they're much cheaper than the 1911s and just as reliable with higher capacity. Don't get me wrong. I love 1911s, but if I can carry 15+1 of 45 ACP in lieu of 7+1 or 8+1, why not?

Paul Harrell is the best IMHO.
Also enjoy Hickok45, Lucky Gunner, Demolition Ranch & Big Johnson.

TFB TV is okay.

If anyone here says "Yankee Marshall", I may have to hunt you down and shoot you myself!!! He makes my skin crawl!

" Victim uses battle ax to fend off home invader"

Personally, I think it was very decent of his mother-in-law to defend him!

Rumor has it that Travis, Bexar, Harris & Dallas counties are considering passing laws declaring themselves "Moron Sanctuary Counties".

Too bad he wasn't appendix carrying. He could have made himself Jewish!!!  :th_KO:

I was at the range at 7:30 this morning to RSO. Only a couple of LTC/Basic handgun classes going on. One or two other groups throughout the day. Finally bailed out around 2:30. Most of the ranges, especially 3 gun were too muddy to use. Did run a few rounds myself with the AR, FN SLP, 509 & FNX-45

Hope it dries up. We are hosting a pumpkin shoot tomorrow with the guys from Payne Bros


I was 14 years old. Too bad many of the autographs are faded.

I do support the Astros, but for me, something was lost when they switched leagues. I still support them, but it's just not quite the same. As a kid, my friends and I would hang out by the players' exit at the Dome and get guys like Joe Sambito, Joe Niekro, Bob Watson & my idol, J.R. Richard to sign our programs and then head over to the other exit and see if any of the Reds or Cubs or Cardinals would sign as well. Hating the Dodgers was as much a rite of childhood as my first bb gun. Somehow, I just can't get as worked up about playing teams like the Rays, A's or Orioles. Many a summer night was spent listening to Gene Elston on the radio. 

That said, I'll still be pulling for our guys with all my heart!

Long live Chester Charge!!

Go 'Stros!!
