FRANKLIN BBQ EVENT FOR THE CENTRAL TEXAS FOOD BANK – SKIP THE LINE AND CONSUME ALL THE BBQ AND BEER YOU WANT
Once again, Kendel and I will be hosting a fundraiser for the Central Texas Food Bank at Franklin BBQ on February 20. Seating is very limited – ticket sales are capped at 60 people. That means there’s no line outside for you to stand in. Come eat dinner, drink some beer, and bid on some great live auction items (where I will be serving as the auctioneer once again.)
Karl Rehn at KR Training has graciously donated training certificates you can bid on, and I’ll be offering an all inclusive LTC class for you and your friends to be scheduled at a mutually convenient time.
Again – seating is limited – at least half of the tickets were sold in the first week they went on sale – get yours today.
DO NOT FIRE WARNING SHOTS
We cover this in my LTC class. Do not fire warning shots. This LTC holder here is facing a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in Travis County, which is a second-degree felony.
LISTEN TO THIS COP’S 911 CALL AFTER HE USED DEADLY FORCE.
This officer did it well. He is not facing charges. Listen to how he handles the situation with 911.
Note how he:
WORLD STAR HIP HOP: BAD TACTICS AND YET STILL GETS THE WIN
A security guard happens upon a robbery in progress. There’s a lot the security officer did wrong here, and yet he shuts down the robbery in progress. The lesson here is to get training so that you’ll be better able to handle yourself in this situation – and realize that sometimes the win comes with little to no resistance.
AS SPRING RAINS AND FLOODING APPROACHES, NEW FEMA MAPS SHOW GROWING RISK IN CENTRAL TEXAS
I just attended the annual Skywarn training for storm spotters on Saturday, and they were conveying that we still lose a lot of lives due to flooding.
The new FEMA flood maps show a significant increase in flood risk. Talk to your insurance agent to ensure that you have the right coverages.
WHEN’S THE NEXT LTC CLASS?
I’d like to do one in March. Message me if you’re interested.
AND WHAT SORT OF PREPAREDNESS TRAINING/MEETINGS ARE HAPPENING?
We had a good meeting at Inks Lake State Park last weekend – tested some get home bags, tried out various fire starting techniques, and talked about how we could be better prepared.
I’m hoping to schedule another weeknight meeting sometime in March and another campout sometime in April. Message me if you are interested.
THE SITUATION: DOW DOWN 666 ON FRIDAY – WHAT’S YOUR PLAN IN THE EVENT OF ANOTHER FINANCIAL CRISIS?
I posted this Friday – last week the markets were somewhat unsettled. Here’s my take on what’s happening and what we need to be doing.
Meanwhile, Chris Martenson sounds the financial alarm. This reading isn’t for those looking for a rosy economic outlook.
That’s it for now. Stay safe out there.
Here's where I tell you what I think about things I think about.
