Re: First time as a civilian drawing my weapon preparing to engage

E.Marquez, From reading your post, I do not doubt that your "Spanglish" is better than mine. How did you not remember that Stop in Spanish is "ALTO"? :txflag: Personally I bellow out "Freeze Expletive Deleted "!! The "Expletive Deleted" varies and is sometimes...

Re: Not again!!!

There is the possibility that we are seeing the results of a near total reliance on technology and a SERIOUS maintenance problem. Along with not enough properly trained and motivated lookouts.

Re: Thank you tax payers

Just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all those tax payers from 1985 to 2014 Over those years I fired tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition that you paid for never once given it much of a thought until I had to buy some of my own 5.56 today IMG_8613.JPG So thank you I had a blast Wel...

Re: Why You Should Always Check The Firearm

I remember seeing this video last year after I got involved in shooting sports again. This incident set a personal policy in stone for me that I check every gun handed to me to ensure it is unloaded, even if the person handing it to me checked it. Only a couple of occasions in the last year where a...

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 Tasers also. Both offer advantages and disadvantages. Currently the tasers allowed for "Non-LEO" use are contact ...

Re: IN: LEO helping rescue trapped victims in a car accident is murdered by one of the trapped men.

There is something missing in the reports. The civilian does NOT fit the mold for someone who would be shooting at an officer coming to help.

Re: Houston Man Makes Citizens Arrest on Suspected DUI

About 17-18 years ago, I followed a drunk from 25 miles into Oklahoma to Gainesville Texas talking to the police/Highway patrol dispatcher, a total of about 45 minutes and waited about 20 minutes after he walked into a house, with ZERO Police response. NOT OHP, NOT DPS, NOT COUNTY, NOT CITY PD. Tota...

Re: Time to move

That is why you use a good Realtor. And that is an oxymoron. :mad5 In my experience, that's not true unless you just walk into a real estate office and ask for any agent. You need to qualify an agent in the same manner as you would an attorney. If you do that, you will very likely have a very satis...

Re: Cali, Oregon and Washington handgun laws?

Looking at a road trip after flying into Cali and deciding if we want to check our handguns. We would be traveling north through Oregon and Washington. Possibly Canada and Alaska. I believe Alaska has reciprocity with Texas. You can't take handguns into Canada. Period. And, as stated, I wouldn't ta...

Re: ...820 pound wild hog in his front yard

I was most impressed by the fact the hog had 6 inch tush, I wonder how big his tusks were, I'm impressed that 3 rounds of 38spl took that hog down, wonder what his shot placement was? It would have to be through the ribs on the side, between the shoulder and the neck on a downward angle or behind t...

Re: Texas Ranger pulls gun on driver who flipped him off

I personally don't blame the Ranger. If folks would keep their hands to themselves, don't cuss out others, don't be flipping them off, then probably most of all problems would be corrected. I have been in the car with my wife and grandchildren and people show off their anger. They know that I canno...

Re: Husband can't get an LTC; what about wife?

Offering the class shouldn't be an issue, anyone can take the class. She should learn in the class that a felon in possession of a firearm, even by marriage, is a crime. I have had many arguments about this, some think "shall not be infringed" means for felons too. I disagree. It did unti...

Re: Bearding

I let mine grow for a few months, and then my wife tells me she misses my face. That's her secret code for, "I hate that thing. Shave it off." I hadn't had mine for about 3 years when I met my wife. After she saw a picture of me with it, she wanted me to grow it back. That was over 20 yea...
