Re: TN: TBI Statement: Dangelo Dorsey Case

There seems to be more and more evil coming at us. Always carry, pay attention to your surroundings and be prepared to act if necessary. I know it sounds trite and shallow, but thoughts and prayers to all the deceased and prayers for the LE who searched for this animal.

Re: Duty to Provide LTC on Voluntary Identification to LEO?

Whereas I explain to my students the exact points of the law regarding when they are REQUIRED to display, I advise them that it a good idea anytime they have interaction with a law enforcement officer and are asked for identification to display BOTH their DL and LTC and state that they are or are no...

Re: Pistol for the wife?

:iagree: That is what I recommend to a lot of my "older" female students. Either that or the .380 EZ.

My wife carries the .380EZ.

Re: US didn't need to drop the atomic bomb on Japan

[ We must judge historical acts from the historical context. Unfortunately, in today's Cancel Culture climate no one wants to understand the historical context of anything or the historical significance of anything. If certain segments are allowed to take power in the US, Philip964 may be correct in...

Re: US didn't need to drop the atomic bomb on Japan

Like many others here, my Dad was in a P-38 Fighter Group that had gone through the fighting in New Guinea, invasion of Moratai, attacks on Borneo and the invasion of the Philippines. In late July 1945 they went from Luzon south to Mindanao to re-equip with the latest model P-38 in preparation for p...

Re: TX: one dead at shooting during police protest in downtown Austin tonight

The order was due to high Covid cases and included Travis, Harris, Dallas, Bexar, and I believe Tarrant counties. There are exceptions for personnel who actually live and commute from Travis County as well as official business.

Re: TX: one dead at shooting during police protest in downtown Austin tonight

Re: Academy ammo

My local Academy seems to be getting a fairly steady stream of 9mm, .40, .223. The trick is to be there at 9AM when they open. If you wait until 10, you MAY find a box or two, but not likely.
