Man, it is a L O N G ways from Austin to Sanderson, to Alpine Texas.
We went to the ranch first, where my good friend Jeff received some shooting lessons on a 12 gauge shotgun, .38 Super, and .45 ACP. He did very well with all of them, and was enthusiastic, and he came away with " I have to buy a .45". That's good, because he has never been exposed to guns unless he was with me, and now I think he is comfortable enough with them, that he can handle one on his own, anyway, we both had a good time at the ranch. More time and practice at the gun range is store for both of us.
The DPS seems to be very active out here.
We were stopped as we came into Alpine this evening, because I was driving in the passing lane, when I wasn't passing.
Long story short he didn't have anything to do, since there was not another car in sight, and we had seen 4 cars between Marathon and Alpine, we were chosen, who knows, they might have been too.
When he saw that I had a concealed handgun permit, he asked if I had it with me, and I answered several. He asked what do you mean by that?
I said I have a .38 Special in my boot, and .357 Mag in the console, a .44 Mag in the back seat floorboard, and a .38 Super in the side pocket of the console on the passenger side, and a .38 snub nose in my briefcase in the back seat, plus other assorted long guns in the back floor board as well.
A warning was administered, and I will return that favor to his Boss when I get home.....harassment is what I call that where I was raised.. Make a note, the side of the road is not the place to make your case.
Looking forward to more Law enforcement contact tomorrow, I will post next time I can get service, and thanks for checking in, take care of each other and pray for rain!!
