Besides the HGCA show, there is a High Caliber show the weekend after Christmas


The Houston Gun Collectors Association has a show this weekend.
If I lived closer to the SPJST Lodge I would probably go. The NRG show next month will get a hard pass from me. With $15 parking and $10 entrance fee your out $25 before you go through the door and don't forget $5 for bottled water and $6 for a hotdog.

Have fun.

I was going to go to that show today, but it is not in the larger building it usually is. And, the last HGCA show I went to about 3 years ago was a let down compared to their normal shows. Most of the larger vendors were not there that particular weekend....

I looked at the size of the building on google street view. Not very many vendors will be there. The usually hold the HGCA at the Reliant Center....

There is a show the weekend after Christmas - I think it is at the Bush Convention Center, I may go to that one

I used to go to gun shows all the time - but just the largest ones in Houston. There are 4 or 5 large vendors. Go for them. The small vendors usually sell things for too much, don't have any inventory, or they only carry crappy guns.

Until about 3 years ago, I went to all of the large, Houston gun shows. If I wanted to buy something, I always got there before they opened. So, I could get something before everyone paws the stuff and scratched the guns up.

One or two of the larger vendors went away, but there still should be 4 or 5. They actually have pretty damn good prices, too. I've bought a lot of stuff at gun shows over the past 20 years

SEPTA police to get new service weapons after Sig pistol accidentally fires

The Philadelphia Police Department is investigating an incident in which a SEPTA police officer’s service weapon fired without manipulation while holstered.

The incident occurred on August 26 during rush hour at Suburban Station while the officer and his partner were on patrol, according to a statement prepared by SEPTA. As the officers were exiting a SEPTA police cart they both “heard a loud bang” then smelled discharged gun powder. One of the officers found that his Sig Sauer P320, SEPTA police’s standard service weapon, discharged while secured in his thigh holster.

Bump - Lowered to $35!

Virginia sheriff vows to deputize residents in response to expected gun control legislation from state Democratic lawmakers

A Virginia sheriff has vowed to deputize residents in his county if the new Democratic-led legislature enacts gun control measures.

Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins made the vow during a Board of Supervisors meeting last week in which the panel unanimously agreed to declare the county a Second Amendment Constitutional County.

“Every Sheriff and Commonwealth Attorney in Virginia will see the consequences if our General Assembly passes further unnecessary gun restrictions,” Jenkins wrote on Facebook before the meeting.

Sad and ridiculous situation - the school put them in a no win situation

Missouri mom defends son beating up school bully in viral post: 'Problem solved'

Davis said that her son had suffered bullying from the unidentified student for years and, despite repeated attempts to get the school to do something about it, nothing happened.

“When this kid has constantly threatened to beat Drew up along with several of his friends, the school did nothing,” Davis said. “When this kid followed Drew down the hall threatening him and making fun of him AND it was all captured on video, the school did nothing.”

The mother said the student’s bullying only got worse over time, including sending her son threats on social media, voicemails and text messages. Still, she said, the school did nothing.

FIREARM ACCESSORIES / WTS in B/CS - Like New Leather holster for PPQ/P99
« on: December 08, 2019, 10:46:37 AM »
Forsale in College Station area (but, will ship if you are not local)....

One Craft leather holster. It will fit the 9mm PPQ or P99 A/S.

OWB, brown leather (see photos below). The holster is basically new - I only used it a few times. It probably still needs some break in.

I replaced it with another Craft holster that has a retention strap. So, I have not been using this one.

The holster is very well made - Craft Holsters are well known. Holster was made in Italy.

$40 + $4 shipping. The first "I'll take it" with an exchange of information gets it! No shipping charge if local pickup.

Please email me at:

You both are Texas residents? There is no registration of guns in Texas. People do background checks in Texas at gun stores for a NEW purchase (unless you have a concealed carry permit, and then they do not  need to do the check).

But for private sales of used guns and gifting - nothing at all is needed.

Some people like to do a bill of sale to protect themselves if the new owner does something crazy. Some people do not.

Whenever I have sold a gun, I insist on a bill of sale which both of us sign, or I won't sell the gun. However, that is just my preference... It is not required at all.

So no, he can just give it to you and that is it - assuming you are both Texas residents. If one of you are not a Texas resident, then there is a slight change to my advice. But, I will wait to see your answer before I get into that....

Gun News & Laws / Re: Is This Sign Sufficient To Prohibit Carrying?
« on: December 06, 2019, 10:32:01 PM »
It is true... No weapon signs can be ignored. Incorrect worded signs are supposedly not valid either. The 30.06 and 30.07 signs have to be exactly worded, be a certain size font, be readable, and be conspicuous.

If they are not, they can be ignored.

The topic of bars has come up a lot on other Texas forums. Many, many bars have the 51% sign inside instead of being visible from the outside or from the lobby.

I have seen some people on other forums claim that TABC makes them hang it near the bar (bartender area). Who knows.. .

However, if you know the place is a bar, you know you should not be carrying there. Bars are the 1 place I would not rely on a sign mistake and carry there anyway...

Yep. There should be a 51% sign (a lot of time it is actually inside), but it doesn't matter... It's a bar. You can't carry there no matter what
