down Texas way. Tyler sherriffs office now sports two armored personell carriers and the Marshall dept. has two nice shiny Huey gunships, equipped with FLIR. Support your local Sheriff, or else.

Got a friend at Ft.Hood. Mortar guy. He found out the Border Patrol has need of people who can shoot mortars. Sound extreme? ...it's just for illumination rounds.
