Maybe I'm just an odd duck.

The vest is a III-A ProMAX model (the premium model that's thinner than standard kevlar), front and back panels with velcro. I've slept in it many times because I was too lazy to take it off.

The vest spray keeps it from stinking. Trust me, you need the spray.

My wife and I moved last November from south Houston to northwest Houston for her job. Naturally, a few months after we moved up here she was hired by a company that has its headquarters in south Houston.

Okay, now I think you might be a little bit of an odd duck (your words not mine)

But south houston explains a little. Still not as bad as East Houston. Got lost over there one time and almost couldn't find my way out (I can't read spanish all that well)

I am sorry this guy died. I keep wondering about his CHP (CCW) trainer, that signed off on this guy. I do this for a living. I have at least one class every week.

You think this guys trainer, thinks he did the right thing?

Did his trainer, train him to go offensive, and try to take out shooters in Wal-Mart? Doubt it.

I teach my students, to take any means possible, to avoid a confrontation.

In 32 years of Concealed Carry, my guns have never broken out above gun leather.

Surely his trainer did not teach him to go offensive. It is probably valid to say he should have taken cover to assess before approaching the gunman. It may also be valid to say that distance is often the friend of someone with good marksmanship. But we weren't there and he was.

God rest his soul.

We also don't know what his reaction would have been if he knew the Woman was there and involved. Wilcox might have felt he was going to prevent a Massacre.
True we don't know, we were not there. I might have paused if I saw the first round was not a deliberate targeting of an innocent. These folks had an issue with LE. They were going to barricade the store and Dare the cops to rush them?

I think Mr. Wilcox did the right thing in stepping up to confront an obvious gunman in what seemed to be trending towards a mass shooting. I'm sure he was focused on the obviously armed man who had just fired a shot. It would tend to focus one's attention. He was unaware of what had happened in the restaurant next door.

I am sickened by the media-types and liberal pundits who are almost gloating that a CCH died and who are using his death as some kind of proof that an armed citizen can't win against a spree shooters.

Given the circumstance he observed, he saw a need. He choose to step up and try an do something about it. Unfortunately for him it didn't work out he got bushwhacked. Even with the most experienced gunfighters that could happen. When the reaper comes he comes..

RIP Mr. Wilcox

Most of the active shooters that I remember were solo, looking for suicide by cop or by their own hand at the end. Had the dirt bag been alone, Mr Wilcox may have lived. The dirt bag was not alone.

The liberal media will doubtless try to twist this to show that civilians carrying do not accomplish the purpose, so no one should carry. I think it shows the opposite. The dirt bag had backup SO THE CC GUYS SHOULD HAVE BACKUP TOO! More CC would have allowed the other CC guys to see that the wife was a dirt bag too.
