Even if you missed them by this much with nerves of steel, it's going to catch up to you. If Panic or other emotion is allowed to take you over, you are lost.

I lived in Memfo in the 80's and was a Private Investigator for 5 years. I specialized in criminal investigation. No carry was allowed at the time but I always carried. I never had an officer say a word since I worked the "bad" sections of town a lot and a few were glad to have me around. I hear it's gotten worse since I moved away but even back then it was the wild west. I once watched a shoot out in a mall parking lot. I stood behind a crowd of "on lookers" down in the south area while bullets whined. I always figured I was safe until the first row dropped. None did and I was ok with that too.

Thanks for the kind words, Sir.

Hanging with Chase has really helped me get my head right after 7 years of being an "Navy IA".

My wife and his Mom are really close now, and that's awesome too because she totally needs to just go out and cut loose and tear up the town, or sit on the couch and drink red wine and cry, depending upon the day or hour...

Don't tell his mom I let him take his mask off:
That post made me well up and wipe my eyes. You are a good man.

I lost a family member to a child cancer when he was about 5 or 6. It's not fair, nor the natural order of things for a parent to bury a child. and pieces of vermin like were discussing in this thread roam the streets and reproduce like rabbits. stay safe over there and i hope your young friend grows up to be a very old man.

Im happy that worked out for you. Hopefully one or both of those young scumbags comes to terms with Jesus.
Kudos to you for the St Jude effort. Its heartbreaking what those poor kids have to go through I dont have the sand to do it and I salute and thank you Sir.

I want to second the "you are a good man" motion! Very well done in both instances and my sincere compliments to you for serving both this young man and our country.

I found out many years ago that the most important word in my vocabulary is "others". It makes life rich!

Thank the Gods you still retain your military training. I'm sure if that would have happened to a lesser trained person it might have ended a lot differently.

I've found the TWRA range on Brother Blvd. in Bartlett is less money, almost always empty, and way cleaner.
And it's always a good idea to be on friendly first name basis with your local Game Wardens...

They just don't sell ammo, but I relaod so I don't really care.

And they don't give you attitude when you pick up your own brass, in fact they require it.

I'm familiar with that range as well. I actually shoot IDPA matches there nearly every Tuesday night. Do you shoot IDPA by chance? If so, come out to the Tuesday night match if you get a chance...starts at 6pm.

SandSquid your picture and actions gave me the chills. I had a friend in college with cancer, when doctor asked him to start some exercise I was every day walking/jogging/playing soccer with him.
