Re: TxCHLForum Express???

As I posted in another posting on this forum a few minutes ago ( viewtopic.php?f=83&t=89631&p=1168495#p1168495 ), I have to get six small boxes from the west end of Houston to the Frisco area. These are CoolCop units donated by my daughter (via a gift from RoyGBiv on this forum) for six of ...

Re: Mrs. VolTexan...Part 1

The sad fact is that certain professions make you a more likely target, and life's randomness makes EVERYONE a potential target of crime. Mrs. VolTexan, by operating in yellow and having a plan(s) has proved once again the adage about "you don't have to be faster than the bear you just have to...

Re: Mrs. VolTexan...Part 1

Thanks to everyone for their responses, and yes, I'm glad everything turned out alright as well. Actually, I'm quite proud of her for her situational awareness, but I think she got stuck balancing tactical positioning vs. 'covering the most expensive stuff in the rear of the store'. There were bette...

Re: It's 9mm day..

Then today is my day! I carry a SigSauer SP2022. It has a standard 15 round magazine, but I have a Mec-gar +2 mag extender on it making mine a 9-19-17!

Mrs. VolTexan...Part 2

My wife had two stories involving her EDC this week - so that's why I named these Part 1 and Part 2. Part 1 is found here . About a week ago, my wife got pulled over in Spring Valley Village - which is one of the 6 or so micro-cities along 1-10 between 610 and Beltway 8 in Harris County. She was ret...

Mrs. VolTexan...Part 1

My wife had two stories involving her EDC this week - so that's why I named these Part 1 and Part 2. Part 2 is found here . Last Thursday, my wife was in her jewelry store, and a pair of yoots walked in. They were in their late teens, dressed like a couple of hood rats, and she didn't get a good vib...

Re: .44 AutoMag being reborn - JD Jones

How does the ammo compare to 44 mag revolver ammo? It's not the same stuff? Revolver ammo (in general) has a rim that is wider than the casing to hold the cartridge in place within the rotating cylinder (prevents it from falling through the hole). Semi-auto ammo (in general) is not rimmed wider tha...

Re: Houston West Quadrant Breakfast

This week, on Thursday night, there were two break-ins on the block where my wife's store is located. A handful of utes were spotted casing the stores this week during the day, and actually got caught on film casing the ladies' clothing store next to my wife's place. The films of the break-ins indic...

Re: Houston south quadrant breakfast

Well, we didn't have what I'd call a full turnout yesterday, but my breakfast conversation with puma guy was quite enjoyable! Hope more folks can make it next month!
