Re: Emigrating to USA with personal firearms

LTCs are fairly common in Texas, most of our friends have them but I have only ever seen open carry by LE or at the range. I must admit I don't look for it though. A problem with open carry is that...

Re: Emigrating to USA with personal firearms

Ohhh, I only scrubbed through the video, I missed that bit. Ha, rookie. A few years on the job and he would have unloaded one clip reaching for another. That's what I would expect from Texas LE,...

Re: Emigrating to USA with personal firearms

If that was LE instead of an Uber driver, that dude would have been taken down in a volley. LE are trained to not stop shooting until the threat is neutralized. But putting aside LE, that is the...

Re: Emigrating to USA with personal firearms

Re: Emigrating to USA with personal firearms

Thanks, we have our name down for a Glock 43x which can take up to 15 rounds. We looked at a Glock 43 but its lower capacity is a negative, especially if it was ever needed. The 43 is in short...

Re: Emigrating to USA with personal firearms

We both passed! Very useful course, especially when it came to the law. The range test was fun, and not too hard. I am just waiting on my Texas Hunting License and then I can legally purchase a...

Re: E2 Visa, Company being sold. How will this affect me?

Prima facile that would be the effect. Just be aware that you may have reporting obligations to USCIS if there is a change of ownership in your sponsoring company. I can’t recall if this is the...

Re: Building Credit For A New Arrival
