Re: Anyone carry pepper spray in their cars? Just 'cause

I just tested mine and it works just like the day I bought it. I noticed that the expiration date is 1/21. I thought I read on Amazon that expiration was 4 years and I know I've had it in the truck for at least three. I saw a small drop below the nozzle and gave it a sniff. I could feel my lungs tr...

Re: Anyone carry pepper spray in their cars? Just 'cause

Having a non-lethal option is a good option. Just be careful leaving a can of OC spray in the vehicle during the summer. I had a can burst an O-ring once. It was contained in the center console but still made a mess. Damn, I hope that won't happen. Fortunately, at work I park in the shade, but not ...

Re: Anyone carry pepper spray in their cars? Just 'cause

Mines been banging around in my truck for 4 years without exploding. Maybe I need to test it again. It might not even work. I'd definitely test it. The contents don't go bad but the O-ring will give out eventually and leak out the propellant. Their inexpensive enough to replace annually. Sabre is a...

Re: FL Carry suing Miami Beach

The issue I see with L.E. is that most understand their authority but not their responsibilities. For example, Sheriff's Offices are the only L.E. agencies set up by Constitutional authority. All other entities are set up my Federal, State or local statute to include FBI, Police departments, etc. Wh...

Re: FL Carry suing Miami Beach

It's amazing what the proper show of force can accomplish. Glad that situation worked out favorably for you both. I was in uniform but driving my POV a few years ago. A guy went road rage on me and actually stopped his truck in the middle of the road to block me. He didn't know beforehand but quickl...

Re: Florida #1

I cannot speak to the absolute accuracy, however;

W - is for a non law enforcement
WX or WY - When they run out of W numbers, they use WX or WY
WJ - Is for a Judge
WC - would be for a consulate or diplomatic type license

Florida #1

Just heard on the news tonight that Florida is nearing it's 2 millionth CCW permit which accounts for 12% of the adult population. That puts Florida at #1 for most permits issued. While I'm against having to pay for a right, I'm glad the number is growing. I teach CCW classes on the side so I feel g...

Re: Fishing Carry.

So I'm still somewhat new to some of the laws in Florida. I've read you can open carry while fishing. I'm not too crazy about that, for a few reasons but understand why one would do it. I think I've read of people being.....pestered.....by people who don't know that acceptable to do. Which means mo...
