    Be very careful what you post on the internet. It might not be used right away, but once it's out there, it's very difficult to completely erase.

    Glockfan, I find it most interesting that postings from this website have been used in court. I know it could happen. However I am surprized it did happen.

    Glockfan, can you provide just one example where a posting from this website has been used in a court of law, and even "read out loud". Just one example. Please.

    I didn't say that posts from this site were used in court. I testified in a case 3 weeks ago where postings from FB were used in a child custody case. About a month ago, I was called to describe my training methods. In that case the prosecution cited a post taken from website where the defendant talked about how his firearms instructor told him to do certain things after a shooting. I wasn't the instructor in question, but was familiar with the lesson plan (I wrote most of it), and produced a copy in court.

    Post whatever you want to online, it's your right. Be aware that you may end up hanging yourself in court based on your statements. LE have ways of finding out who you are even though you use a screen name. Contrary to popular belief, Big Brother IS watching.

    GF, I appreciate you keeping us on the straight & level. It would be too easy to get lured into a conversation where you might say something that could get you in trouble later. I know I have been guilty of it and I wish someone like you had stopped me before I posted. I've never spoken of breaking the law (not knowingly at least) but I did post a picture on another gun forum that I wish I hadn't.

    You might not be aware, but many people come to this site seeking advice. Some may take whatever advice posted as "valid" and go out and do things that they're not supposed to. When they get caught, tried and convicted, their actions reflect on ALL law abiding gun owners. I feel that it's my responsibility as a responsible gun owning citizen and firearms instructor, to share my knowledge and do my best to see that this doesn't happen.

    I don't know what kind of game you think you're playing here, but I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that I don't appreciate folks coming on here asking a question, then saying "ha ha I fooled you....." when given sound advice.

    Like it or not, this site is open to the public and can be readily found by various search engines using proper key words. I'm not sure if you've ever been privy to court proceedings or have any idea of how investigations are done, but I assure you that internet searches are now common practice.

    Call me paranoid or whatever you want, as that's YOUR right protected by the 1st Amendment. I offer my advice based on personal experience and from what I've encountered on the job. I have testified many times in court for both the prosecution and defense. In many cases I'm asked questions regarding stuff people posted on internet forums or on social networking sites.

    In case you're not aware, there are many people in this country who are attempting to further limit our 2A rights. We as gun owners and law abiding citizens need to do what we can to stop these people from further restricting our rights.

    Hey, GF, my initial reaction was the guy was being sarcastic, in a CYA kind of way. He can certainly speak for himself, but that's what I thought anyway.

    Although I will admit to finding myself in shaky legal situations sometimes (e.g., forgot weapon in truck console when I pulled onto campus), I sure as hell wouldn't advertise that I'm always carrying illegally, that's for sure.

    Hmmm, my immediate thought when I read this FIRST POST was that it was probably an anti gun troll hoping to get a response saying it was cool to carry illegally, and repost on some anti 2A site.

    Still working on finding facts to support that thought.

    It seemed very obvious to me that his 2nd post ws a sarcastic reponse to the warnings that preceeded it.

    Wait,,,,I thought I was the troll here. Ain't nobody gonna be a troll here without my say so.
    What an interesting message board here.
    We not only have a retired E-9 marine, and a law enforcement officer, and security expert, who are expert Christians, but now, an expert witness for both the prosecution, and the defense.

    I feel so honored to be a part of this web site.

    Jokes belong in the "Off Topic" category. Rather than speculate on what the intentions of the OP were, I'd like to see him post a response. It's clear that it wasn't so "obvious" to myself and at least 1 other member of the forum.

    Man alive, this thread is really crazy but still sorta fun to read. BTW: I ripped off the tag from my bed so I'll see if anyone reports me to the mattress police. I have to say that its hard for me to leave my gun behind when I travel into California so I do understand the paradox. Moreover, I use to be a LEO in SoCal and I know darn well how things use to be done.
