Re: Texas-made trauma clamp being discussed at CoTCCC

Given depth of arteries and potential convoluted surfaces, I'll stick with CAT or Izzy - field proven around the world.
Now just to decide between the king lt and i-gel.... too many new toys to play with.

Re: Strange No Handguns Sign

They swapped a few last year. They're speshul. Their security will also get bent out of shape over automatic knives - although they can't do anything about it besides sulk petulantly when yoy make then look up the actual law. I would hate to see their reaction/ realization that there are a number of...

Re: Sweetwater Rattlesnake Roundup: March 7-10, 2019.

Big flea market, lots of vendors, small carnival rides, typical state fair food booths, gun show where everything is priced to move (move back to the truck that brought it) and then theres the snakes. The snake exhibits are pretty neat. There will be several demo areas set up where they milk the ven...

Re: Proposed: Texas require all motorists to carry yellow safety vests in their vehicles

The bad thing is, I do keep a pair in my truck - as well as a hi-vis niosh rain jacket. Spending quite a bit of time on the side of the road has taught me their value. Idiot drivers, like rodents and toddlers, are attracted to shiny things - when I eventually get smashed I want it full on right prop...

Re: Just Correlation or Also Causation

To slightly expand on that - even in the most liberal enclaves of America, self defense is viable if not civiliy protected.
In the UK, self defense is just another charge - there is no incentive for the subjects to assume personal responsibility, instead it is actively discouraged.

Re: Mercy Killing of Animals

Not sure where the rest of my post went, but - yes it would be very wise to contact a game warden, animal control or law enforcement dependent on the location. While Texas animal cruelty laws specifically exempt killing an animal you own, provided it does not rise ti the level of cruelty, they do ad...

Look at the Springfield XDS for thin, 9mm width is .9 inches. If you want double stack mags, the xd mod 2 is only 1.19 wide.
