    The VetVerify process only took me a minute. It must not be ran by the DoD.

    that's funny, yesh it must be on a sale or have them match bestbuy

    Many times you can find large ticket items that can be $100 cheaper and they often throw promotions to use the Star card for another 10% off or double points for $20 plus gift cards, those are in store promotions and of course it's tax free

    Marine Corps Rules:
    1. Have a plan.
    2. Have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won't work.
    3. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
    4. Decide to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.
    5. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
    6. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start with a '4'.
    7. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Your life is expensive.
    8. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend (lateral & diagonal preferred).
    9. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
    10. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
    11. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
    12. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
    13. If you are not shooting, you should be reloading or moving.

    US Air Force Rules
    :

    4. Ask 'What is a gunfight?'
    5. Request more funding from Congress with a 'killer' Power Point presentation.
    6. Wine & dine ''key' Congressmen, invite DOD & defense industry executives.
    7. Receive funding, set up new command and assemble assets.
    8. Declare the assets 'strategic' and never deploy them operationally.
    9. Hurry to make 13:45 tee-time.
    10. Make sure the base is as far as possible from the conflict but close enough to have a tax exemption.

    wait....you have to pay to use public land in Texas? Last state I would of thought that was needed. NJ residents going crazy right now because new to be governor wants "pay to play" to be used to visit our state parks. While I am against more taxation I do know the budget for our parks is lower than it should be to provide clean, safe, properly staffed state land.

    But you can fish for free in a state park, no license required.

    Parks do require a fee. I don' think WMA requires to pay for land use.
