    New member from central Texas

    I am a new member here but not new to conceal carry. I obtained my CHL several years ago.

    Texas has a petition before the legislature for open carry. I signed the petition, not because I want to open carry, but because I no longer want to worry about some liberal panty waist seeing my gun handle peek from under my shirt. As the Texas law presently states, I can lose my CHL if someone sees the gun and freaks.

    I presently own 18 hand guns and 7 rifles. ... and my wife owns 5 hand guns; she does not own a rifle.

    Teach your wives to shoot. Let them purchase and register their own hand guns. Encourage them to get their CHL. That way, they can blow away the perp while he is worrying about your weapon.

    I think you'll fit right in. Welcome from Arkansas.

    I see that you own a 50505 S&W. I have purchased five of these with one going to my father and one to my brother. The other three are safely tucked away in my humidity controlled safe.

    My every day carry weapon is a 442 (not the SAF) with a set of lasermax (above the cylinder) laser grips. BTW, Lasermax has that set of grips on sale right now for $179 + $10 shipping through Jan-5. LaserMax: :

    Wow, 18 hand guns. Maybe I can can borrow one if mine needs to go into the shop. I have several rifles and shotguns and am working on an AR 15 build project.. actually I am waiting not working. Both my kids go to college in Austin and I have good friends in Round Rock.
    Yoda, I am, yes.

    Welcome to the forum.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
