Re: Church shooting in Tarrant County - White Settlement

I know from Jacks classes that that the first guy shot must have gotten complacent since their security team had been in place for about 10 years. I normally try to not have to go through multiple layers of cloth to reach my carry weapon. He had to go under a sport coat and a shirt tail both drawing...

Glad the church had a active security team on hand. The WSCC is just north of an area of Fort Wirth that has been allowed to become a very rough area. In the late 60’s early 70’s there were a number of large apartment complexes and townhouses built with high-end rent rates. All those apartments are ...

Re: MO: Woman killed by stray bullet, area bans artists and food trucks
