Re: What Point of Sale system do you use?

Square is one of the options I was looking at. Didn't know about their firearm prohibition. And yes, we are low volume, low inventory operation do no need to get technical. We just need a way to process debit/cc.
Thank you all for advice.
Peace

What Point of Sale system do you use?

My wife and I have been approached about selling some items we make that would require us to have a POS system that would operate with IOS based mobile phones whether it is connected via WiFi or a mobile network. Thought I would get some suggestions from the community on what you may use, pitfalls, ...

Re: Wear seat belts - even in the back seat!

Yet when I question folks about not wearing their seatbelts I still get stories along this line: "Well, I was in a wreck once and if I was wearing a seatbelt I would be dead." What a bunch if horse hockey. I can post pictures of my wreck and show that if the driver of the other vehicle would of had...

Re: Wear seat belts - even in the back seat!

Having worked several hundred motor vehicle accidents, I've come to the conclusion that it is actually very hard to die in a modern vehicle PROVIDED you follow the instructions- use the seat belt. Just that. Not rocket science. Not hopes and prayers. Not magic chakra rocks. Just buckle up and buckl...

Re: Bonnie and Clyde walk into a BAR...*

My mother-in-laws Mom was a cousin of Bonnie. MIL grew up in Smithfield which is now part of North Richland Hills. I obtained an original, uncirculated, wanted poster of Bonnie and Clyde. An alias for Clyde listed on the back was Roy Bailey. Asked my MIL who Roy was without mentioning the poster. Sh...

Re: Texas-made trauma clamp being discussed at CoTCCC

Sorry for the thread drift... To get back on topic, I'm wondering if the IT Clamp would also be effective in lieu of a chest seal, especially if there's only an entrance wound?? I would say no, without direct evidence or experience. Chest seals allow for one way release of air pressure. IT Clamp ap...

Re: Texas-made trauma clamp being discussed at CoTCCC

Compartment Syndrome is nothing to fool around with. I know two people it happened to, and both ended up losing significant amounts of tissue from their affected leg. One was a friend of mine who had been in a terrible on-track motorcycle accident at Willow Springs Raceway, and her lower leg had be...

Re: Texas-made trauma clamp being discussed at CoTCCC

The EMS agency I work for have been using the IT Clamp for almost 3 years now. They work well for scalp lacerations that are difficult to dress with bandaging and for avulsions. The patients have tolerated them well. The idea is not to clamp and artery or vein. It holds he skin in place allowing a ...

Cancer=Rat Bastard.

I've read along a bit. Many of us have had to suffer through the Devils attack whether personally, family or friend.
God's blessings upon you all.

Re: HB 1123 - First Responder Deisgnation on LTC

Thank you for your family's service. No offense at all given a scenario instead of an arrogant opinion. My, very brief, response would be that the medics in battle are already surrounded by good guys with guns...tanks, artillery, etc. Many many times in EMS we are entering situations that are unpre...

Re: HB 1123 - First Responder Deisgnation on LTC

More "special" classes of citizens. And, as a first responder, I disagree with this. Come ride out with me and see if you don't feel that you are in a potentially dangerous situation at any given time. Just going to play devil’s advocate for a moment here, so please don’t take offense.... [devil’s ...

I'd support this if anyone who completes the stated training is eligible. There is no reason to limit this just to those employed as first responders. Their employers should also get the same rights.
I agree with this.
