Only once, hopefully I never have to again. It's a miracle I didn't have to more with as much time as I spent on the road as a younger man. Let's just say nasty hotels and my nice stuff don't go together... That truck was brand new, I wasn't letting it go that easy.

Another question. Would you kill a man over a truck when your life was not in danger?

I have never had to pull out a gun, and hope I never do. I have heard way too many people talk like they cannot wait for the day that they do, crazy.
Truck question- They can have the truck if it means taking a life, it is a simple possession and replaceable. And insurance will cover it.

Thousands of time in the military..maybe 8 times a civilian. A trespasser will get a gun pulled on him at my place in Southlake. Since I locked the back gate it doesn't happen often now.

In answer to your second question...... Yes and be within my lawful rights. I don't share the liberal concerns of taking a criminals life.

I recently had another CPI presented to the grand jury and I can't begin to tell you the stress is causes. 9 of 12 have to true bill to indict, but in todays world, anything is possible. Using deadly force to protect property is just asking to lose your life as you know it.

My lawyer would be able to pick those nine...If it is a written law...which it is is....there's 95% of your defense.

I've never had a bad car crash, but I wear my seat belt.
Never had my truck catch on fire, but I have a fire extinguisher.

Nope, never had to defend myself using my gun.

It is clearly written in Texas law that a person has the right to do so. It is not even a grey area, I've recently read it.

1: Yes.

2: I believe the act described would be classified as Theft and therefore you do not have the legal right to use Deadly Force during the day. At night if there is no other means of recovery of the truck and an the act of recovery would place you at risk of death or harm then you can employ Deadly Force.

I am not an attorney nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn last night but that is my understanding of the Code.

IMHO it would not be worth the risk and cost, call agent and wait for the check.

Rarely would a would be car thief not use some sort of weapon in a daytime robbery. I'm not going thru deductibles and coming up with the money to get a new one. If I have a safe shot he's going down.
