Re: First Aid Kit-Bee Sting?

TQs are for bleeding out of limb arteries ... And the only one I trust is SOFTT-W Gen 4. The others are complete garbage, including the popular CAT (unless you are willing to carry 4 because the windlasses are made of plastic and break with alarming frequency) I'll echo that the SOFFT-W is a great ...

https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/LG/htm/LG.229.htm As I understand this statute, if you're outside the city limits, the city (if you're in their Extraterritorial Jurisdiction), nor the county can prohibit you from discharging a pistol, shotgun, bow, or BB gun on at least 10 acres, or a rifle ...

Re: California Man Mysteriously Freed After Selling Illegal AR-15s

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Could be random, could be bad luck, could be the people he procured his herb from were less than stellar citizens . And the early verdict, "Killed in a drug deal."
