Re: Carry Always and Everywhere It's Legal

A determined guy with a pipe can do a lot of damage and, while no pistol round is a sure thing for an instant stop, the .380 relies more on a psychological stop (the bad guy freaks out that he's been shot) rather than a disabling physical stop than do more powerful rounds. Food for thought: when yo...

Re: Carry Always and Everywhere It's Legal

I have only had my permit a a little over a month now and while at first I only carried coming and going to my office and when I had deposits to make. Since then I have seen and heard of enough going wrong in seemingly unlikely places that I carry all the time now. You just never know when some nut...

Re: Scare last night

Glad to hear everything is ok. With my wife and 2 yr old at home when I work late this is a concern for me as well. We have resorted to setting the alarm to instantly alert authorities when I am running late and she watches TV either upstairs with our son where there is a gun safe or downstairs in o...

Re: Left gun in bathroom

Some time ago I was having a little work done on my car, and while waiting I used the restroom. Right next to the toilet was a little recessed shelf, and it seemed easiest to just remove my IWB holster (with the gun in it as usual) and set it there on the shelf. Well, from my subject line you know ...

Re: 17y/o Killed By Neighborhood Watch/CHL

Big difference between a hero complex and a hero. Zimmerman was playing cop without the training an LEO has and made poor choices with a tragic outcome. I am no law enforcement office but what kind of cop training would have prevented this tragedy? My point is an LEO would not be alone, would have ...

Re: 17y/o Killed By Neighborhood Watch/CHL

I've been biting my tongue here for months on this thing. I can't stand it any longer. I'll try to summarize my thoguhts, put them out there, and see what everyone thinks. 1) Zimmerman made tactical errors, and judgement errors. He's not "perfect" as some say, but I don't think he was specifically ...

Re: Had to(?) show my G19 ... I think ...

Scott, This sounds eerily similar to an incident that happened to me about a little while ago. I was cut off a couple of times in a bad section of Houston by a guy that appeared to try to force me to rear end him so he could sue me for insurance. And I didn't make any gestures or say anything so as...

Re: Had to(?) show my G19 ... I think ...

Not too long ago, (3 weeks?) I was very close to my home. I haven't posted about this because I was waiting to see if anything came of it and I didn't want anything online. I think I'm ok to share now. Curious of your thoughts. On the way to my house, the main road merges from 3 into 2 lanes. The l...

Re: 17y/o Killed By Neighborhood Watch/CHL

... My point is an LEO would not be alone, would have at least been readily identifiable as an LEO and most likely would have his/her lights flashing on their cruiser. Provided Martin was not breaking the law, he would have had nothing to fear from a police officer questioning him. As I have said i...

Re: 17y/o Killed By Neighborhood Watch/CHL

I think the "hero complex" explains a lot of this. Totally agree on the hero complex. Of course, it's not against the law to have a hero complex. Whether or not his actions were legally justified still needs to be adjudicated. Seems like its been made illegal to have a "hero complex" in some people...

Re: 17y/o Killed By Neighborhood Watch/CHL

Latest news has it that the results of an FBI Investigation into the shooting concluded Zimmerman did not racially profile Trayvon Martin. I for one am glad to hear that. I think people throw the race card a little too quickly in a lot of cases like these. i would like to see your source on this. I...
