    Anyone play guitar?

    Very nice raffle prize! These should keep you busy for a while - www.justinguitar.com - never mind his politics, he's a good guy and has a great site. All free. On youtube search Justin Sandercoe Songs for specific stuff. www.markweinguitarlessons.com is another good site. Not as well laid out as Justin's but good info just the same. www.chordbook.com - more chords than you'll ever want to know. www.guitaretab.com - pretty large list of song tabs for when you get tired of scales and chords

    That's actually a cool idea. A lot of good trivia to come.

    Quality car parts?

    Asking the best brand of parts is a loaded question (pun intended). Kind of like 9mm vs. .45. From my experience only - Belts and hoses - Gates or Goodyear (goodyear is an oem supplier) Plugs - I go with oem here - Autolite for Ford, don't know about the Jeep Filters - I've used Putolator or A/C Delco on my GMs Brakes - Raybestos, Wagner, or Bendix I've found O'Reilly to be good. Sometimes Pep Boys. NAPA is good, but a lot of things are repackaged for them, so I don't always know who made it. Around here, there is a Full-Service distributor/retailer - they generally have the best factory or factory quality on hand.
  6. Uhhh, hmmm, $3000, huh? Nevermind, just looking. Now that the reality check has passed, I find my self in 100% agreement with 1911Tuner!
  7. A 300 grain .50 cal! Did the 9mm vs. .45 argument just become moot?
  8. Coonan arms used to sell a 1911 in .357 Magnum. I've never seen one in person, so I don't know how true to the original it was. The grip appeared longer to accomodate the cartridge. They haven't been produced in years and the ones out there are going up in price. Of course, there are several manufacturers making 9mm versions. I think a 9mm 1911 with a double stack mag would be cool. Nothing beats the trigger on a 1911. That .50 cal is something. First I've seen of that. How many grains is that bullet?

    I'm not military, but sounds like complete bs. As a prosecutor, can't you pull his military records?

    Daughter needs some back up.....

    Well, since none of my e-mails match my screen name, I hope it's okay to post my message here for her. Shelby: I'm sure you feel extremely weird about things right now. All of the bad things that we see on TV all seem so distant and because we see them so often they don't really affect us. While you may not realize this, you and your dad acted heroically. Yes, I said heroically. You saw a situation here that may have been extremely dangerous for you and for your classmates and you faced up to the threat. Many people would have blown things off, only to wish they hadn't if things had turned tragic. Believe me, it is better to do what you did than spend the rest of your life asking "what if I had done something different" about the loss of friends to some unbalanced killer. Be proud of your dad. He did what dads are supposed to do - protect their family. He did it legally and correctly. It may not match what you see on movies or TV, but remember this. He did it right. As far as the picture, I consider myself to be pretty funny most of the time. That picture was not a joke. At best, it shows him to be demented, at worst, it was a window to what he planned to do. I know this has been unpleasant for you and your family. Use and learn from it - that is the best advice I can give. Stay strong and God Bless you.

    Another Columbine threat RFN!

    Amazingly, I could find nothing. When Loaded first posted this and said DPD would do nothing, I started searching online for anything about terroristic threats. Oh, there were a few articles here and there, usually about some known scumbag and this was thrown in to get him, but nothing specific. So I searched through Title 18CFR whic contains federal criminal statues. Nothing. Oh, if you steal software, or transfer technology, they'll get you, but I could find nothing about threats via e-mail. I also checked the Texas Penal Code. Again, I found nothing. I was pretty surprised. Now, I'm no legal expert by any means, but I have found everything I've ever had questions about on these sites before.

    Another Columbine threat RFN!

    I'm glad this disturbed child decided to tip his hand. This is scary as hell - to think what could have occurred. As has been said, keep up the situational awareness. There may be a defective friend of his out there with the same idea - can't be too careful these days. You did a good job!

    Homeland Security Doesn't Feel Secure.

    For instance, when an envelope with suspicious powder was opened last fall at Homeland Security Department headquarters, guards said they watched in amazement as superiors carried it by the office of Secretary Michael Chertoff, took it outside and then shook it outside Chertoff's window without evacuating people nearby. Man, that's a classic! Just remember the scariest words you'll ever hear: Hi, we're from the government and we're here to help!

    Chose one rifle other than an AR that...

    FAL Para. Although the siren's song of the M1A is very strong. What a beautiful rifle!

    69 days to Texas!!!

    That sounds great. I had to look up where Merkel is, though. Rather than cut and paste a buch of stuff, here is a link to the Texas Penal Code. Chapter 46 covers everything you need to know. Texas Penal Code For the most part, there are no restrictions on long guns (shotguns or rifles), loaded or unloaded, although certain cities try to preempt state law. Shall issue concealed carry. Can carry a pistol in your personal vehicle when travelling (and travelling was finally defined in 2005) although the Houston DA has tried not to accept that definition.
