    Here's me on the set of The Accountant. Jeff took this photo. There was some black tape on the lens apparently.

    @Paycheck fist off good luck with everything your doing and doing it right. second well I can’t help with the gun problems your having I can say that the most important thing in my opinion (whatever it’s worth) anyone can have is AWARENESS and COMMONSENSE. I think the majority of the world lacks these two things greatly. As much as I love my tools these two things come into play more then any tool ever will.
    I know I don’t know the environment you live in and you obviously can’t foresee the person that just randomly decided to rob you but I do believe you can do a lot to prevent those kins of thing. I’m not going to go over the many ways. Other then that you could start learning your empty handed skills doing videos online. I believe they are very important and no one can ever take that away from you.
    I figured someone had to be serious here :eek:

    Hey Paycheck, I'll add some of my experience with being a recent transplant to texas and carrying. When I first got down here and I still had an out of state DL and CCW permit I had no problem carrying, TX honored my out of state permit no problem. Now that I have gotten my Texas DL I have notified my previous state of my residency switch and they converted my CCW to a non resident and instructed my to add my TX address to it. Well here is the tricky part, I did the TX CHL course right as all of the fingerprinting locations shut down... so I am held up waiting for those to open up. So while texas honored my out of state permit when I had an out of state license I have gotten mixed answers in if they honor it now I'm officially a Texas resident.

    Much like everyone else I'm barely going out right now, so that helps with alot if this. Also Texas especially in the very rural area I am, is very lax about long guns in cars so I always have at least a basic AR15 carbine or a pump action 12 gauge and usually my .308 scout or 18inch AR15 spr style rifle with me. Enough that if it really hit the fan quickly (pretty unrealistic but fun to think about at times) my girlfriend and I would each have a long gun. For pistols, my understanding of the law is with out any permit you can have a loaded pistol concealed off your person in your vehicle with out a permit, so I keep a pistol, few mags and some basic edc stuff in a HPG kit bag in a hidden but easily accessible area of my vehicle. It is by no means ideal, and it means I'm unarmed outside of what ever knives and flashlights that I am carrying in public places, but I'm usually not far from my vehicle and a minute jog to it to be very well armed is better than a 45 minute drive back to my house...

    Don't worry, bub. If y'all's affinity for livestock did not deter me from returning to this nuthouse full of degenerates, I can't think of much that will. My only gripe with you is taking care of an egg during a field survival course....a little bird told me it was your idea.

    I stay in shape and used to train MMA and BJJ (even had an amateur fight). I'm fairly confident in my hand-to-hand skills, especially on the ground. I live around Oak Cliff in Dallas, and recently, we had a wave of armed robberies by some young punks. Either police won't do anything or people are not reporting it (Mexican neighborhood, few speak English, I'm guessing not everybody got their papers). Heard through the grapevine one of them got shot dead in a stick-up gone wrong, but apparently, that did not deter the rest. Either way, I don't come out late, and if I do, I stay alert. It's more of an "I'd rather know in advance than find out the hard way" kind of deal.

    That's a good perspective. I tend to bring along a rifle, as well as some essentials in my trunk when we go on long trips in the middle of nowhere, just in case the car stops somewhere without much traffic or a phone signal (happened to me once). I'll do more research on what I'm allowed to keep in my car and how to do it right. Like you said, better to be inconvenienced than unprepared.

    I still can't get over the fact that Oklahoma is a Constitutional Carry state and Texas isn't......must be our Canadian Senator :) (looking right at you, Ted).
    It's one of the three things that were ironic to me about Texas, the other two being that you couldn't have a Bowie knife on you (that got fixed) and you can't play Texas Hold 'Em openly (no casinos).

    I don’t have a lot of superpowers but designing ways for people to be uncomfortable is something I excel at.

    I haven't altered what I've been carrying but yesterday we had multiple people shot during an attempted B&E downtown.

    Rumor is it was a drug house. No further news yet...

    Typically, a little more creative than that. Like the time I woke up the wilderness survival class at 2 am so they could sit through a rather long and dry knife safety class in the classroom. It may be the only knife safety class in the history of the world ever taught at 2 am.

    My last words to them at midnight were, "You guys did a great job and earned a full night sleep so hit the rack."

    They learned to listen closely. "Earned" does not mean the same as "You will receive...", which had to be explained several times.

    Wow, living on an edge, are we. I wouldn't have the balls to give a knife to someone whom I woke up at 2am.
