Howdy All,


I'm Joe a.k.a. "Slow Motion". I will keep it short and sweet.. I'm not law enforcement nor attending or prospecting the academy. Just a plain jane truck driver with a couple of questions that can wait til I get settled in. Born and raised out of Houston, TX. 30 as of the date I joined. Clean record clean csa and about as brutally honest as they come . Was once in the USMC, got into basic, quized by medical, find out MEPS slipped up, and sent back home. Atleast I put forth the effort. Came away with a better perspective of myself and life so wasn't a waste. So where it asked occupation and status thats the back story behind it. Closest assessment I guess. Either way UHC.


Anyways, on to the gnitty gritty, I'm a truck driver so I get to interact with fine LEOs such as yourselves on a fairly regular basis. I just happened to stumble across this when searching for the age old myth of FMCSA Fire Arms regulations and figure I would pop my head in and say hello. I'll tell ya up front I've met the good the bad and the ugly when it comes to officers so it gives a bit of perspective. I know ya'll are just doing the job to the best of your abilities. Some days are better than others and a few bad eggs can just slip through the cracks. So if I get a bit too opinionated just bag and tag meh lol.


We do share a couple of common things with our proffessions atleast, mountains of regulations with no tolerance for error, ire from public opinion, constantly working a high risk occupation, and the safety of those that don't like us or appreciate the work we do.


Just wanted to introduce myself. Just perusing the forums to get a better understanding to the flip side of the coin.


Funny how the only enumerated right that contains the phrase "shall not be infringed" suffers the heaviest regulation. I'm still trying to find where it says anything about hunting and targets.

Welcome to PL hope you enjoy your stay :o)


Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today’s world do not have.

Shoot maybe I'm just a troll in disguise.


Nah I just wanted to poke my nose into the truck driver topic in the HP forum and got hooked on word association. The rest is just fun reading. I might stick my nose in if I have an opinion but otherwise I try to stay out of the way.


As for lunch... eh I stay moving pretty often and its an internet forum. Nothing personal but safety first . Not LE so can't be verified therefore can't be trusted. But I like the idea.
