Kaspar Wire Works, the Spoetzel Brewery and now, Shield Tactical. Industry is what keeps the small town of Shiner, Texas alive.

A Texas Ping!
Plus good beer!
My favorite! And welcome to Texas!!!
I’m happy to see them come here!
Just another good reason to visit shiner.
Don’t forget the sausage. http://www.gvec.net/maekers/home.htm
Oooo...didn’t know about THAT! Thanks for the link! :)
This needs a road trip!
Go for it! :)
Enjoying a Shiner Bock right now.
Guv’ner Moonbeam’s gerbils are so pissed.
Love it when we get under the skin of the libtards! :)
Cool!! I am ready later this summer. Where is Shiner? LOL.
Thanks, JJ! :)
I just LOVE Texas and the people who live here!!
Texans are THE best! :)
Don’t forget Patek’s. They have great sausage too!!!!
It doesn’t get any better than this! Thanks for the post. Hubby loves Shiner Bock. Now, there’s even more to love in Shiner.
According to all the guys here, you can go there for beer, food AND firearms now. That’s something to celebrate for sure! :)
Are they being given a hard time there. I know they’d be welcomed with open arms here!

That’s good stuff.
Seems quite easy, trouble is most Conservatives are too civil to do it.
That's gonna give Cali's economy a black eye.
Road trip down 77 again!
Shiner Tx is just off Halletsville and 77.
Is that a Shiner in your holster or you just happy to see me?
God Bless Him, Rick Perry is no wordsmith, but I like that guy.
Now all they need is an ammo plant to go with it.
Yep, welcome to Texas.
I hope they are going to be giving tours of the plant.
Shiner is turning into Disney World for adults: Beer, sausage and guns, what could be better.
“Are they being given a hard time there. I know theyd be welcomed with open arms here.”
This is rural downstate. We’re just fine with them. It’s that tumor on the northeast corner of the state that will drive them out.
Now THAT sounds like a plan! LOL!
I’m ready for that road trip. It was so fun the first time! :)
Thanks for the ping. There is another gun manufacture that was going to open in Austin. They decided on Pflugerville because the permitting process is too difficult in Austin.
Seems to me that our beloved governor, who I greatly respect, needs to check things in his own back yard, huh! I’m very glad to see all these new businesses come here. We must be doing something right.
However, they can leave the liberals back in California, etc. Right? :)
I guess you haven’t been keeping up with the Rosemary Lehmberg saga. It is big news here, since it is the Travis county DA. She got 45 days in lockup, but will probably only serve 15, since she will get 3 for each day with good behavior.
She said there is no way she will step down, since Gov Perry would likely appoint a Republican. The Travis county has the power to investigate state office holders. The local dims are calling on her to resign. If she won’t Perry can assign that job to the State Atty General. Gov Perry is looking at all options.
Austin is building bike lanes and passed an ordinance that cars must stay three feet from bikes and trucks must stay six feet away. Austin PD made a video from a dashcam showing an officer crossing a double solid yellow line to give the bike room. Break a DPS law to obey a city ordinance is stupid.
Yep...put a Dem in charge of ANYthing, and you get stupidity! That bike lane law is just nutty...no other way to put it! Geez!
I haven’t heard much about that, but I hope Gov. Perry exercises his right to remove and replace this stupid cow. She is selfishly holding on to her position...she has NO love for the people she represents or she would see that she is only doing harm while she’s being so stubborn and self-serving!
I’ll try to keep with other developments here. Austin has been wondering why they are losing businesses. They are that dense.
It’s funny how Austin is completely out of touch with the rest of the state! I’m glad Perry is more accessible.
I don’t know how those “tolerant and feel-gooder” libs live with themselves. LOL! They seem so miserable all the time!...and want everyone else to be, too. Well, I got news for them! We ignore and go on being REAL Texans! :)
Pflugerville is about to get a major economic boost. The world’s first precision-guided firearm manufacturer is moving to the city.
Tracking Point Inc. manufactures a high tech firearm that allows a person with a few minutes of training to become skilled marksman.
East of San Antonio off I-10.
