Re: Dallas Deputy Sheriff

Re: CHLer shootout with burger king robber

Update: For those of us carrying .380's --- yikes! CHL took 3 hits of .380 from robber, robber took unknown shots from glock 19 9mm. CHL lives, robber dies. You guys are right, tactically a disaster. I wouldn't speak to or otherwise engage the bad guy until I had him in my sights and could act befor...

Re: November '08 Applications

Broncrider, Its not just you, only I can't figure out why its always the end of the week. Sure feels like we should be up this week, looks like we are some of the last from Nov of those here on the forum.

Re: November '08 Applications

fisher of man - I totally check the DPS website so much that I think it will ever only say one thing. In fact, I have this habit of closing the web page so fast out of frustration that I bet the day it changes, I will just zip through my routine so fast that I wont even notice the change! Probably h...
