Re: Some days, things just seem to go well

It's heartening to see that once in a while a good deed does go unpunished! :lol:

Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

It was just crazy2medic and myself in Weatherford today. So many folks said they wouldn't be able to make the meet in Arlington that what looked like it was going to be a very small gathering didn't justify an hour drive each way for me. C2M lives close to Weatherford too, and we had a very enjoyabl...

Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

Might better ask who is going to be there? I can make it but i don't want to be there by myself! I can make it too, but don't want to drive an hour to Arlington for only one or two folks, one of whom has to come from Mineral Wells. I suggest moving this month's meeting location to Weatherford. R&am...

Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

Update: The R&K Cafe has closed.

I propose meeting at the Sunny Street Cafe at 1314 S. Main Street (in the strip mall across from Walgreen's) in Weatherford.

Any takers?

.45 Auto Failure to Stop with Head Shot

A man in Brazil appeared relatively unfazed after he sustained a .45 auto shot to his forehead during a robbery.

A photo taken shortly afterwards suggests that he may be a bit more hard headed than most.

Details and the referenced photo can be viewed here.

Re: LEOSA and TCOLE

I can see that, Excalibur. I was thinking of people using the TCOLE card as their ID, not as their proof of qualification. TCOLE does call it an ID card and I was just pointing out that it is not sufficient for an ID card and that you needed the agency ID card. Bryanmc, I was not saying TCOLE instr...

Re: Snatch and Grab at Church Tonight

You and your team did fabulously well! You did everything you reasonably could to prevent the theft and recover the property. Things would very likely have gotten a lot messier if someone had blocked in or directly confronted a determined pair of thieves, and there might well have been negative cons...

Re: LEOSA and TCOLE

Interesting that this has been revived. I found it in a search with keywords LEOSA and TCOLE. I had a firearms instructor (state le and chl) tell me that the only valid leosa qualification card in Texas was the one issued by TCOLE. LEOSA says that you have to qualify to state standards by someone q...

Re: LEOSA and TCOLE

Texas Govt. Code refers to “License to Carry a Handgun”. You do not need a TX CHL to carry under LEOSA. Therefore, if I don’t have a TX CHL I am not carrying a handgun under authority of Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Govt Code. As I understand it, even if you have an LTC and also qualify annually unde...

Re: My Water Line Burst

In the FAQ's from the website you provided, it states that PEX is not approved for outdoor applications. I've read from other places that underground usage is fine. The reasoning is that UV exposure causes rapid deterioration, but if it's underground that's not an issue. That makes sense!
