The device in question may be a tear gas launcher or something. That muzzle sure looks like it's 37-40mm in diameter.
My first thought was a bean bag gun. Given they were apparently there for crowd control I would like to thing it was a "less than deadly" tool.

Re: Especially Texan: George Barnard

My wife was a Barnard. Related to George's brother and business partner Charles. The story of Juanita Barnard, captured by Indians and ransomed by the Barnard's for cash and horses, is also very interesting. After Texas independence the Republic of Texas requested a military liaison from th US due t...

Re: 20 ga slugs

I bought a Mossberg 20g rifled slug gun for my son, when he was a boy, over 10 years ago. Fixed powered scope, Hornady sabots, 4" groups at 100 yards with light wind (I'm no dead ringer). Kicked like a mule till I bolted on a Limb Saver recoil pad. Bought a smooth bore from a local parts guru for bi...

Re: Another Meme Thread

I guess I made the mods work since I don't see my last posting in this thread. I hope this is more in line with the intended content.

Re: MO: Armed man arrested at Walmart.

People never cease to amaze me...

Some fire departments in Texas do have armed members. Cross trained as commissioned law enforcement providing Fire Marshal service.

Re: Unintended Consequences

Certainly As a society we desperately need to strengthen the traditional family, faith in God, and sense of community. I can say with certainty that there is life after death and that all misdeeds will be accounted for. Unfortunately too many of our schools are miseducating children into believing ...

Re: No place but Dallas.

At the Tarrant County courthouse is a Civil War era 4" cannon. It was found in 2013 (or there about) buried under the west lawn. After being restored it has been displayed on the east lawn, aimed east, which anyone from Fort Worth sees as appropriate. :thewave

Re: New to Concealed Carry, have a few questions

Welcome aboard. One thing that I do to get comfortable with new equipment is to load snap caps. Then I practiced securing and removing my holster in different positions. While doing so I would also practice drawing from the holster in the various positions. As always I treated the firearm as if it w...

Re: Overdose Suspect Is Revived By Narcan and Fatally Shoots Firefighter

I wonder if the police would have been within their legal rights to search him before the paramedics revived him. As a first responder the number 1 rule, heck 1 thru 10, is crew safety. An incapacitated person that you respond to falls under implied consent. You need no other justification for trea...

Re: This Day In Texas History - May20

There should be a documentary on Van Cliburn. He was the only American allowed to travel, with the blessings of JFK, to the USSR during the Cuban missile crisis. Many credit his close relationship with Kruschev as being vital to the Soviet stand down. I had the opportunity to meet him at his residen...
