Re: Off The Beaten Path - Belton, TX

I grew up in Belton (8th grade thru high school) and traveled back regularly until my parents left in 2016. There is a great Corp of Engineers lake there that I spent a lot of time on while in high school. They have a historic July 4th parade that has taken place since the 1850s. They've also got so...

Re: Ruger lcp

I own a LCP and carry it regularly in a Recluse pocket holster. One thing I encourage you to do is clean it frequently. I have found that it requires cleaning much more often than my Glocks or Springfields. I have had one experience when the slide wouldn't fully return to the ready position, renderi...

Re: Two Way Radios For Our Church

I haven’t responded earlier since I didn’t have a recommendation to meet your requirements but if you’re looking to step up then I have a suggestion. We use Motorola CP200 radios. They require an FCC license and have four channels if you need alternate channels (each channel requires a license). Th...

Re: Two Way Radios For Our Church

Two Way Radios For Our Church

I would appreciate some recommendations on two way radios for use by our church. Currently we have units from Connect Systems (model CS100), but these were $150 each and I need to purchase several more. Our church doesn't have our own building so we setup & tear down each Sunday. We meet on a school...

Re: Blindsided

One thing I'll add to the OP's list is to use the vehicle to put space between you and someone who approaches. Normally I try to stand in front of the hood or at the rear by the trunk. If someone approaches I can quickly move to put some space and a barrier between us.

glad to hear it; I wonder what action has been taken against the officer back at HQ who told him to arrest the nurse?
I recall the article stating that he had been demoted.

Re: Do you carry at home?

Not as often as I should. :oops:

When I leave the house I normally carry from the time I leave until bedtime. I need to get into the habit of arming first thing in the morning.
