Glock 23 or 22?
When I ride I use a 33 bc of my experience with windshields. I like the size for cross draw but Ido carry standard 22mags. I do drop a 27 barrel in it sometimes but if Im not switching stuff I use a 22C.

But Ohh you see.... Snakes ok alligators ok but I like my tags Kosher (no offense to any of the Jewish faith for using this as a crutch).
Hogs? No can do...

@Depth

Out of all the guys here I thought you would get what I was talking about.
HOG= Hunter of Gunmen USMC

I though it was a sniper deal you know, given your "hobby". Took it as a warning.

PIG (Professionally Instructed Gunmen) to HOG. You may be interested.

Maybe I just too out there

Really though it was a watch out fun I'll surprise the heck out of whomever shows. Kind alike theZombie tag.

No, yes, I meant the 4 legged kind with tusks

There is a range across the street though. Think I'll lease a key for next year if I can since it is a pretty cool place.

And here I was thinking you were skeered of bacon.

After much detective work I know where this is... to ride in the rain or not to ride? What are we playing for again? A trip to Hawai'i? $5,000USD? If so, I may ride in the rain.

Crayon answer leads me to believe that I was wrong about the location on this one. Clearly Depth wouldn't choose one tht close to Crockett TX

Good time to test the rain gear anyways. Frogg Toggs, First Gear Kili and Alpinestars S-MX5. I sip my tea with my finger sticking out as well, since I appear to be so dainty in the face of a little mist. Alas, I was dry the whole time.

This is the best picture I could get:



As you can see, there's 0 shoulder on the bridge... when I tried to go to the other side I had a nice talk with a member of the Wilmer Police Department, who kindly asked me to move along or be shot (I assumed that second part).

This is Lock and Dam 2 coming out of Dallas on the Trinity River, if I understood correctly they were trying to make the trickle that is the Trinity River navigable to Galveston, so they tried to build a bunch of dams. Somehow, this didn't work (who would've thought) and because of the expense and difficulty they gave up after 9. Being new to Dallas, it was a neat piece of history to learn.

Using the original picture, I used the blue hue of the sky to approximate the position of the sun over the picture taker, and assuming that picture was taken within +/-15 minutes of when it was posted it allowed me to approximate a latitude, the longitude was a bit easier... just kidding! I hope I had some of you going. The black and white picture was named "lockanddam2," so then all I had to do was google that name and found the history and location and whatnot.

I didn't go off-road as 1. I don't carry a gun. 2. I didn't feel like it.

Biggest danger here might be a stray dog... and the humans. Don't feed the humans.

What are you smoking? (GSA) Tag was located at http://goo.gl/maps/0P562

I've got a pretty fair idea of where this new one is.

Edit to add: Congrats and good work Crayon! Looks as though we've got another player in the game.

Probably thinks if it is farther West than the Texas Louisiana border that it is too close to Fort Worth

I knew where it was ...off the Beltline Bridge. I said it was risky bc we know Simmons modus opreandi! He likes rides like that one! I do too btw, I may go check it out just to show that I not only love bacon in the pan but in the flesh too!
Yeah, it's a Fair chance you know where the new tag is
