    I don't remember hearing or reading about your incident. I do vaguely remember something about someone planning to join the military but being unable to do so after an attack by bad guys. I am very glad to hear you survived!

    Bad guys do have the advantage because they know what they are planning and you don't. You must be able to react instantly, which requires you to be alert and have a gun handy.

    Texas didn't have a law in 1994 allowing concealed carry like they do now. If you don't yet have your license to carry, get it soon!

    By the way, the gang war going on in Juarez is expected to spill over into the US very soon. Don't go anywhere without your gun, day or night! Don't go over the border into Juarez at ANY time!
    Hey thank you so much, I already have my CCW and thank God I don't live in El Paso TX..

    I still have family there.

    This picture is actually after the 5 HR Surgery.. The curving part of the Scar is where the Bullet went in.. I hope you know what part of the Scar I'm speaking about.

    Btw, I don't know if you heard. Don Haskins just passed away. It is a great loss
    for El Paso.

    This is what I look like now..

    When they did the surgery they had to do plastic surgery on the right side.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    You really had a good surgeon, you can't even tell you were shot. Did your family have to pay for it?

    The state of Texas paid for it, since I was a California residents just visiting.

    TRICKORMATE You look good. Thanks for sharing. I'm surprised 60 minutes or some show like that did not call you for your story.
