    I'm going to be a police officer!

    Just last week I finished my application process to the Austin Police Department's 113th Academy. It starts at the end of May. So in December to January I'll be out on the streets. I can't wait to be working at my dream job, few people have that opportunity. My wife and I are glad to be finished with the 6 month application process. And we will double our income. So you know what that means, more guns (Rohrbaughs, Sigs, and ARs OH MY)
    Yeah I like Glocks, wanna fight about it!

    Major congrat's .......... I know how long you have been waiting and planning. This seems like the official start for you.

    Quite a long haul overall but the goal is more than worthy.

    I don't want to hijack your congrats thread, but I can give you lots of big brother advice to keep you motivated and just some advice so you keep your job. I'll start posting that once this thread fizzles out.

    Congrats again, I know its an exciting feeling. Start running right now if you are not already in great shape, some push ups wont hurt too.

    If that is half as good as your traffic stops 101 - I shall be an interested reader!! Assuming of course it's a thread.

    Maybe you will just PM.
