  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Mesquite Texas Gun Show

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I went to Mesquite Gun Show and saved 8 dollar admission using my Grey Card for 100%. Mrs Pete and I are concerned about home invasions and have decided besides dogs we want something to chase them off.

Can't decide between a revolver and a Glock 9.

Pete, I had the same scenario. I have a S and W 9mm 16 shot pistol as well as a Glock 40 cal.

Both are nice but I prefer the S and W for the massive quantity of rounds it holds.

I think either a revolver or a shotgun are best. With the revolver all you have to do is grab it and pull the trigger if it is loaded. With the shotgun even with shaky and scared hands if you point in the general direction of the bad guy you are probably going to ruin his day. There are many good and different opinions on this subject. I think the dog idea is best. People don't shoot their wives or husbands by mistake with a dog. The thing is if you are in a gunfight with a home invader it will probably be over in about 10 seconds. This is an interesting and important topic. Do you have an alarm system besides the dogs? If you have a big dog a person really has to be a homicidal maniac to do a home invasion.

Pete , compensated .40 with red laser sight makes a fine home defense weapon for those late nite guest ! Ha Ha !!!!!!!!!!!

In a home invasion you will be lucky to get off a few shots , you just have to make them count . The 40 has the stopping power !!

Pete , go to an indoor range and shoot a couple of rentals and see what you and the wife prefer , nothing like buying a new gun and not liking the way it handles .

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
