  • 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 .

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
