Re: Buy A New Truck - The 50% Off Sale Has Arrived!

Keep in mind that Chrysler Corp. does not have one vehicle that's recommended in Consumer Reports. Mercedes Benz, the logical German company, could not make any money with the company and sold it to Cerberus Capital Management. Cerberus is one of these buy-it-and-flip-it type of companies.

Re: Garland Newbie Saying Hello !!

Welcome pepperkay. Finding your preferred gun will be relatively easy. Choosing your practice and carry ammo will be easy, but finding some to buy will be the hard part!

Although I have not taken any defensive handgun courses, I believe that at the time they moved me away from the register and they forgot about me for a few seconds I would draw and shoot. If I got shot, at least...

Let's get a discussion started on tactics to use during a particular robbery. First of all, fire up another Internet session besides the one on which you are reading TexasCHLForum.com.

Re: Well this aint going help the campus carry bill any.

There is a possibility that the killer is on his way to Texas since he has Austin relatives.

His vehicle is a red 2005 Jeep Liberty, Georgia license plate AIX-1376.
