Hey guy's sorry I missed the shoot.  Had to go to the ranch in Laredo to deal with a situation.
Hope everything is ok.

Yea I'm fine.  The ranch sit's right on the Rio Grande and we have always had issue's with illegals, mostly just minor stuff.  But the past 10 years it has turned into a DMZ where you never go down there in group's of less than 4 and always be armed.  Between illegals , drug runners , and cartel gun thug's you never know who you may run up on.  So as much as I hated to do it since this property has been in the family since 1850 we sold it to a neighboring rancher who has been wanting it for a long time.

That sucks.  I have a friend who's dad has a ranch in Falcon.  He has to leave everything unlocked when he's not there, and a bunch of canned food.  One time he showed up after being away for only a day, and intercepted some illegals trying to steal his bronco.  He took their shoes and dropped them off in the desert...called la migra and went home...

Unfortunately, while Texas law allows for certain things... It seems that the Feds frown on protecting your property in that area of the country.

Just another aspect of the damn "Constitution Free Zones"! You have no right to protections against unlawful search, or to defend yourself or property.

Yea if an illegal get's hurt on your property by anything shy of getting struck by lightning the property owner can be liable.  And god help ya if you crank off a round at one defending your self or otherwise.

A friend and I are looking to shoot skeet/trap this summer at Horace, are there any teams out there looking for two more members?  Shoot me a PM if you have room.
