Re: Poor Sales People

Sorry guys, but which is it ?? Is the 40 a brutal cal. or a short, weak cal. ? For the record I like Gibbs & his 'crew' (I'm also a fan of the 40). ;-) Well it's all in what you compare it to. It is weaker than the 10mm and was developed to meet the specs of a reduced power 10mm load for the FBI an...

Re: Poor Sales People

To be honest, it is not bad advice IMO. .40 is a brutal round as for recoil compared to .45 or 9mm. Now, until that person shoots the specific gun with .40, then they will not know, but it is much harsher and normally not fun to shoot. SO, while the sales person maybe should have prefaced their com...

Re: Gun lawsuit dismissed in Temple

And one juror could vote to convict, while 11 vote to acquit. I'm not talking about the Grisham case, I'm talking about a seriously flawed jury system. Yes, jurors can and do ignore the evidence, as well as the lack of evidence. If the prosecution cannot pick a good jury, then that's their fault. T...

Re: Gun lawsuit dismissed in Temple

... I've always thought miss-trials due to not enough jurors to convict/dead-lock should be the equivalent of not guilty or at least double jeopardy should apply. I agree wholeheartedly! The state's burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. If they cannot do that, then jeopardy should attach...

When something is this absurd it seems to me it's usually pretty easy to find a valid reason for dismissal. It seems in the sons case it will just be a different court that dismisses it.

I don't believe he was. The wife and son sued for the distress, or whatever, that CJ's arrest caused them.

Re: Gun lawsuit dismissed in Temple

Not sure if this has made the rounds here or not. If so, apologies, I didn't see it. Open Carry Texas' honcho. CJ Grisham, sued the city of Temple and police. This week most of that was dismissed. Still pending is his son's lawsuit(s) which the judge declined to dismiss, saying a summary judgement ...

It's not but doing so after taking pictures thru a secured gate of police officers license plates will likely result in some charge and I'm OK with that.

Re: Police confiscated my weapon

The hells angels, Cossacks, and Bandido's all classify themselves as a MC and not a gang but we all know the truth. So what club or gang do you affiliate with? Also the Blue Knights are the only LEO club I know of. Actually the Cossacks are a MC but not a 1% club. They are not on any gang or outlaw...

Re: Police confiscated my weapon

None of which is obviously relative to the OP as he has refused to state what MC he is associated with. Without that piece of info,,, there is no way to say if he is statutorily worng, or being done an injustice. I don't want to claim that he is wrong or a 1% or anything like that personally. I'm j...

Re: Police confiscated my weapon

Stew, If you want to be believed and accepted here, you'll have to work a bit harder at convincing the members you're being mistreated by LE by being more forthcoming. If not interested in being accepted here, O.K., but the perception at this point is you are quite possibly a member of an outlaw bi...

Re: Police confiscated my weapon

Do you belong to a recognized "MC"? Did you have any patches visible that would lead the PD to believe you were? I'm interested in your case from a purely non partisan perspective. I have friends who ride in clubs and have no association with known outlaw "clubs". Thanks. He has used the "lingo" th...

Re: Collapsible Baton-Legal to Carry in Texas

It's not worthless but a pain compliance device. Batons are too light and skinny to do real damage to limbs that would make someone unable to function. For the most part this is by design as the older leaded wood batons can cause real physical damage and death at a much higher rate than modern bato...
