If I had one of these my wife would let me go to Falcon.
Are these Rick Perry's personal water craft?"There is only one thing wrong with a fishing day--its staggering brevity. If a man spent all his days fishing, life would seem to be a swift dream." Zane Grey

My wife was hesitant for my son to join us at Falcon in Nov. She had no problem with me going.

First off, they don't have 50's. Gun mounts are a twin M240 (7.62) in the front, single mounts on the sides. Secondly, these things were built expressly for Lake Falcon and the border down by Brownsville.
They will train a bit on Lake Austin and Decker, but they will not be used to patrol the lakes here. That's APD and TCSO's job.
The state bought these mainly because the feds won't do a damn thing about armed incursions on Falcon. Really not intended for drug interdiction. Wasn't even part of the written proposal. This is a gunboat, pure and simple. (sorry to break the news to all you "drug war" guys)
Sad fact is, the use of them will be so hemmed in by ridiculous rules of engagement that they'll never fire a shot.

I guess TPWD doesn't have to play by the same rules of engagement on Falcon.

M240's are the shit and I guarantee those dudes aren't gonna just drive around looking pretty in a half a million dollar boat with that kinda firpower on it and never fire a shot. Big kids with bad toys will play..
