Re: Appendix IWB carry--or not?

I don't have much time to elaborate now, will try to pick this up later, but in my experience with some pretty rough and tumble training, including (training) knives, guns (airsoft), in-my-face struggles standing and on the ground, sitting, belted in a car, etc etc, carrying my gun AIWB ran rings ar...

Re: HB435 Volunteer Emergency Svces Carrying

...In general, what is required to become a volunteer fire fighter? I live out in the county and before this became a thing I was playing with the idea of volunteering for the VFD closest to me. I wonder if VFD would be more rewarding/impactful than CERT? I'm sure VFDs vary, but in mine: not everyo...

Re: HB435 Volunteer Emergency Svces Carrying

Now, having said all that in the previous post, I think it's still a pretty low bar to clear the VESP hurdle. You could check with your county's Emergency Services Coordinator (or whatever the equivalent is) and see what kinds of things they need help with. I don't think you would necessarily have t...

Re: HB435 Volunteer Emergency Svces Carrying

... the State would have to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that you are NOT an emergency services volunteer. No, I don't think so, at least as I understand defenses to prosecution. I think the State only has to prove the elements of the offense, i.e. defendant was given proper notice, was in a p...

Re: another 30.06 question

Get a red cross first aid card and soon you can ignore 30.06 signs. ??? So as a Certified Texas Paramedic with a CPR, ACLS, PHTLS, PALS and other medical cards I can ignore 30.06 signs? Are you sure? Only if you use those certifications as a volunteer. If you act as a paid paramedic (or other emerg...

Re: ASP batons - legal?

What Tylerscott20 said. With Pepperspray being a legal form of intermediate use of force with a greater standoff distance than a baton, why not use that? Just my .02, LeonCarr Why not both? It is the right to bear arms, not just firearms. Patience, young Jedi!! .. Hah. I am neither young nor Jedi. ...

Re: Double Edged Knife

I think it's already legal -- to have at your house -- just illegal to carry around...until September 1st, like Jusme said. Save the wear and tear on your grinder. ;-)
