Re: Home invasion gun fight captured on dramatic surveillance video

This is a good one to rethink your nightstand gun or quick access safe set up. Would YOU have had a gun in hand that quickly after being awoken in the night? I have been a little lazy lately on keeping a nightstand gun. I have a “bump in the night” belt hanging on the corner of my headboard. Full s...

Re: Do you ever open carry?

Just did. Wife and I went for a walk at a neighborhood park and stopped at Subway on the way home. Nobody seemed to notice. I OC frequently and I’ve never had a negative comment, had a few positive comments, and have noticed the panhandlers, vagrants, and con artist find another direction to go when...

Re: Waco PD K9 attacks handler, was killed to save human LEO.

That article says the dog, Kastor, was only two years old. The officer could not have had him for a couple years. My guess would be that he only had the dog for 2-4 months at the most. This would support my initial assessment. However, maybe the dog was at least 2.5 years old and had been with his ...

Re: Waco PD K9 attacks handler, was killed to save human LEO.

Met Officer Bucher and Kastor as part of the Citizen Police Academy the day before this happened. I don’t remember the time but he mentioned having been a K-9 officer for several years and (IIRC) had Kastor for a couple of years. From the info given to us, SOP seemed to be getting dogs that were ini...

Re: Stand Alone ER's / Rip Offs or ...?

I’ve used one in Waco a few times due to cardiac problems and be pleased because:

Longest time from coming in the door in seeing a doc and getting a ecg started was 10 minutes

The doctors are all trained ER docs

The cost has been much cheaper than the local hospitals

Re: Gun shots in celebration of the coming of 2018.

From Mythbusters annotated: For the first time ever, they deemed this one busted, plausible, and confirmed. All of their tests, from the pig's head to the 9mm firing to the balloon, showed that a bullet fired perfectly straight up into the air is not lethal. However, it is also very difficult to sho...

Re: Waco food suggestions?

I like Baris but the parking is REALLY lousy. I've quit going except for take-out. 1424 Is good. Every month or two the wife & I walk over after work. (3 blocks) Bangkok Royal is good thai and downtown. Across from the Hilton at Franklin and University Park. Portofino's is good but parking downtown ...

Re: Academy 6/11-13/17: Cowboy .22, 6 pistols in .22,.380,9MM, & .40.

Since the PT-111 was on sale recently (last couple of weeks) for $199 I'd say the .22 was a $90 freebie. Since the lowest I've seen the HRR lately was about $129 the net savings would be about $30.

Re: 6 weeks Taurus... 6 weeks

I have four Taurus semi-autos that have been reliable for me: 738, 709 Slim, 638, and PT92. I prefer the PT92 over the Beretta because of the frame-mounted safety. The 638 is a nice gun for stepping folks up from a .22 since the .380 in a PT111-sized gun keeps the recoil down. I did have a lot of FT...

Re: McLennan Community College Campus Carry Policy Announced

I.e, I assume there's more in the CSC than just the health clinic and the child development center and classrooms 108 & 109. Depending on the internal building architecture, excluding the whole building may be excessive. Are the "board of regents meeting locations" excluded ALL THE TIME, or just wh...

Re: Recommendations for Campgrounds in Central Texas

Colorado Bend is a longer drive but the surrounding area is much less developed. The same would be true of Lost Maples but the spaces there are very limited. The best fishing would probably be at Inks Lake.
