That's not really correct unless I'm reading your post wrong. Concealed carry in Texas means you must have a CHL. You can carry your gun in your car as your carry is considered part of your "castle", or an extension of your house. You can carry your gun concealed only to and from an accredited gun range.....Other than that you need a CHL.

a lot of people did not like it because it was basically making it so you can carry your gun anywhere you want .all you would have to do is say you were headed home or headed to your car

So here are a couple of pictures from my weekend at the range. I'm still getting used to the scope. I've had to reposition it to get the correct eye relief. I'm also going to have to have my eyes checked. From a crappy rest I was able to get this grouping at 100yds. Mostly using the Winchester white box stuff. Wind cooperated on Sunday. The two hits in the center diamond and the one at 9 o'clock off the main group were called flyers.

On Tuesday all of my stuff arrived back from Ruger, including the original box. I'm a happy person now.

Hipower - Good eye. Yep that's Deals Gap Tail of the Dragon. Picture by Killboy. I don't know if that's Mud Turn or not, but it probably is. From '03 to '09 I did my annual week-long vacation to the Gap with the two-stroke riders. Oldag - Yep, Good Times. I'll have to go back again soon.

"Damn dirty gas piston"

OK, good to find you guys again. I agree with Harrya about gas piston cleaning, takes a lot more effort than most. The chrome is more matte than shiny. A sks I previously owned was shiny chrome and would clean with a toothbrush, aggressive bronze brush scrubbing is required with the SR. As a side note, this being my first AR type, after cleaning I did not notice any ramp polishing or anything that looked hand-worked in the chamber area like some of you have reported. Thanks again for the thread, and welcome back to NH, MOD!

I disagree my SR is very easy to clean usually just wipe it off with a rag.. I think it's 10 times easier to clean then a gas impingement.. really the only thing you need to clean on it is the piston anyways (most of the time)

No were the state with no sales or income tax not a bunch of liberal spendthrifts.

I will say one thing about Texas the people are among the most friendly people that we have meant in our travels along with the good people of Alaska.

Texans are great....very friendly and more than willing to go out of their way to help you out.

But.....I also think the people of New Hampshire are great....Its just too damn cold up there!

Piston is certainly the hardest to clean as it gets the most "crap" on it but I also will say it also can get carbon-like build up that does not wipe off easily with a cloth. I have used a Dremel with a bronze wire brush attachment that takes it all off and polishes to a nice shine but certainly not a bright chrome shine like the website picture shows.....In fact the BCG's on my 762's and SR556FB are what I would call a "matt" chrome finish....not shiny or even very smooth.....Although nothing compares to a quality NiB BCG finish....simply the best.

What are you defining as your destination? You can't take your gun without a CHL into WalMart if that's your destination....You can take it to and from your car, watercraft, houseboat, trailer or any other vehicle or building that is under your control or is considered your domain or "castle"....and of course a gun range/club. In addition you can bring to and from your place of work if its allowed. Other than than you can not conceal carry your weapon. You can not walk out of your house and down the street to your neighbors house 5 doors down, carrying concealed....will you get caught....no....but...it is illegal.

Maybe we will have to agree to disagree....

.... the BCG may not be a shiny chrome like a mirror but it is still smooth and slippery .. I prefer this Chrome to the shiny mirror like Chrome myself..I also would not want to be using a dremel with a bronze brush seems like it would cut down On the life of the BCG and piston (I'm probably just being a wimp about it though) .. you made me go take a second look at my BCG it is very smooth and slippery in my opinion... I like it.. I also have a NP3 BCG which after all the research I have done I prefer over the NIB BCG the Nib feels smoother but technically it is not as slippery as the NP3 but not by a very big margin...... so anyways I think a direct impingement is much more time consuming then a piston gun .. if I use any kind of brush on it I try to stick to one with the synthetic plastic bristles.. I exaggerated about being able to wipe it off with a rag only but sometimes I can no problem ...so I guess by now you could tell that I definitely like my SR a lot Lol and she can do no wrong lol ...I will say that she has gained some weight since we first met and I don't like that Lol and she cost a lot to take out to dinner lol
