texasmwade I was really stoked that Drew invited me to participate in this project with him a few weeks back! Unfortunately I got broke off pretty much first thing and was peeing blood... So I wasn't able to play the way I wanted to out there... But I can tell you this, @drewbezanson is a nut case and I love it! People are going to flip out when they see this edit the morning!!! #uncontainable @redbull @redbullcanada 5d

texasmwade Just want to give a shout out to @cityoftylertexas Parking Meter Officer "RNEWMAN" for jerk move of the day... I was having a serious lunch date with a close friend at El Lugar on the square downtown today and came out to find this. I parked at 12:06pm (I know because I looked at the clock). I put two hours on the meter. Notice what time the ticket was written... I walked out at 2:20pm. I get it, I came out after my time was up. I was 14 minutes late, I'll pay the ticket, but did you have to sit there and wait for my time to run out then write me a ticket one minute after it was up?! #jerkmove #getalife 6d
  •   matkatmusic yes 1 minute after expiration, i saw that when i read your caption the first time 5d
  •   little_erock DICK MOVE 5d
  •   kaosbmx6 Haha just mad cause it isn't his truck! 5d
  •   lifemcguire Lol sorry man, that's crazy! 5d
  •   jesperbernhardsson Hahaha, "just" 14 min?? That's quite a lot. You must have had a watch somewhere so you could get out in time? And, it's just $8?? Thats nothing! 5d
  •   archaius Is that a real ticket? $8?! That's hardly worth the paper it's printed on! The last parking fine I got was over $100. 2:07 is a dick move, though. 5d
  •   atxjoshl Wow major jerk move! 1 MINUTE?!! 5d
  •   coryfuckingd That's brutal, I parked to get a BCI check before.. Sprinted there & back. Got a ticket within my 4 minutes. $35 3d

texasmwade Four of the people in this photo are badasses, two of them are cute babes, and one of them is a dork in a @noveske_llc shirt. I'll let you figure out who is who here! Haha We had an awesome weekend of training at the Dynamis - "Combative Pistol 1" course that @dynamis_alliance offers! The class was instructed by @domraso, @goodidea_d, and Eli "The Good Bad Guy"! Haha All of these guys are awesome instructors, extremely well qualified, and on point! If you're a CHL (Concealed Handgun License) holder, no matter your level of training, I strongly urge you to take one of these classes! You will come out the other side a more effective Sheepdog! Thanks again guys! You #crushed it last weekend! #willtofight #crusheverything 2w

texasmwade So I got this text from @domraso today, and at first glance it may look like Dom is wearing one of my @empirebmx "Stitched Up" T-shirts, but he actually just flexed and this Shmedium T just couldn't handle it! Haha You're the man Dom! Thanks for the support! If any of you don't know who @domraso is, just take my word for it, he's a badass! #willtoflex #willtofight #crusheverything 2w

texasmwade @nataliebwade and I were driving through Arkansas today and decided to take a little detour to pay our respects to a true American Hero, Adam Brown. The word hero gets tossed around a lot these days, but if you know anything about this man you will know that he was the real deal! I highly encourage everyone to read his story the way he wanted it told, and that is exactly how it was in the book "Fearless" by @ericblehm. I consider it a true honor to be able to visit this memorial and show my gratitude for the ultimate sacrifice that this man made on March 17, 2010 for his friends and for his country. Never again will I think of St. Patty's Day the same! #fearless #AdamBrown God can take tragedy and make it so powerful! #AllPraiseToHim #superman 2w
  •   justin_butler1987 @texasmwade I can truly say that you are like on of 3 famous people I see that go out of there way to let U.S. troops know that what we do is not in vain. Just want to say thanks for all the support you show for us and stuff like this that you post lets me know that I joined the military for the right reasons also like to thank @wesselbuilt @bkachinsky for all the support they push for veterans and military in general. Just like BMX is on big family so is the military and its supporters. 2w
  •   wesselbuilt @justin_butler1987 thanks for the good words. Love you @texasmwade 2w
  •   adamjohnpage Greatest story I've ever read! 2w
  •   drabfour Great read about a true Hero. Rest easy Adam Brown. 2w
  •   tonyg729 Very good story of what one can do and overcome if you dedicate yourself 100%. 2w
  •   derekbernal3 @texasmwade my favorite book. I actually made my way to Hot Springs a couple of months back. 2w

texasmwade At the #RossPerotMuseum with @nataliebwade for our 8th anniversary and we feel soooooo safe knowing that there are NO GUNS in this building! If that sign weren't there a psycho with a gun could come in here and shoot the place up! It's just so comforting knowing that if someone were to break the law and bring a gun in here to commit a mass shooting, no law abiding citizens will be able to stop them with equal force to protect themselves and other innocent people. The "30.06" sign should be renamed the "Don't worry the cops will be here in minutes when your life could end in seconds!" Sign... Let's snap back to reality here folks, almost all mass shootings happen in "gun free zones"! Ask yourself if that's a coincidence or not... Or just leave the blindfold on, keep drinking the #KoolAid, and #sheep on! 1mon
  •   texasmwade @charly_zzz ha! It actually is about size/population... That's how you get these things called percentages. But there are these other things call statistics, and there's a saying about statistics. "There's lies, damn lies, and then there are statistics". 90% of gun crime in America is gang on gang violence. Why don't you try removing gang on gang crime from your numbers there chief, because the majority of law abiding citizens in America aren't in gangs so they are not involved in this gun crime (which is illegal by the way). Now let's do some math... You say ten times, and we just removed 90% of my personal risk of being killed because I'm not in a gang, where are we now? There's ignorance and there's uninformed. Which one are you? 4w
  •   texasmwade @charly_zzz according to www.FBI.gov there are about 1.4 million gang members in America and 90% of gun crime is between those gang members, meaning basically that they shoot each other. There are roughly 90 million law abiding gun owners in America that don't shoot other people with their guns. By the way, if you take the 10% that is left of people (that are non-gang members) that are involved in gun crime and you remove suicide and justified self defense, the number is closer to 1.4%. Run those numbers through your calculator and see where we come in with your "10 times more likely to get shot" claims. By the way I don't plan on committing suicide or provoking someone into shooting me out of self defense! Ignorant or uninformed? 4w
  •   charly_zzz @texasmwade I agree with your opinion about the gangs crimes. In France it's the same thing most of the murders are made by "gang" members, their guns are illegals too (there's a big traffic of thousands AK47 coming from Eastern Europe after the fall of communism). So if you remove 90% of my personal risk (I'm not in a gang too) we're back at the beginning. I really understand your opinion, and what you consider a freedom, and I know it's a part of your culture. I try to explain my opinion. I mean I don't have a gun and I'm not scared of going outside because I know that nobody else in my neighborhood have a gun. 4w
  •   charly_zzz @texasmwade I don't think I'm uninformed or ignorant, I don't have the same way of thinking than yours. I heard about murders in a theater last week in USA, and I think the same thing already happened two years ago. The fact is for now that kind of sad killings never happened in my country. I respect your opinion and I think you're not going to agree with me but I try to show you that some people like me feel safe without a gun while it's look like you feel uncomfortable without one 4w
  •   rckennerson @texasmwade I like your swagger! 4w
  •   texasmwade @charly_zzz you are 100% correct that we will not agree on this because our cultures are completely different. You also just validated that your claim of not having guns in you country is false by stating that "thousands of AK-47's" are being illegally smuggled in. Nothing will change the number of guns we have in our country so the idea of getting rid of them all to end gun crime is beyond a pipe dream. And by the way, I feel quite safe without a gun here in America, but that doesn't change the fact that there are nut cases that will go ballistic on innocent people, and there are ass holes that mug, rob, attack, and rape, you name it... I carry a gun for the most extreme of instances that could possibly happen and do happen on a daily basis no matter what country you live in! The bottom line is that the problem is not the guns, it's the people that use them. And for someone from a different country to just pop in and make comments such as yours it does show that you are one of the two either uninformed or ignorant because of the simple fact that it is impossible to do what you are saying and not to mention, hundreds of thousands of crimes are stopped every year in America by just the presence of a firearm by law abiding citizens. And gun control (or taking the guns away) doesn't take them away from the criminals who most likely already have them illegally to begin with! All it does is make it so we (non-criminals) can't defend ourselves in a "worst case scenario", which as you have pointed out do happen. Ben Franklin put it this way, ”He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security.” If you were to actually try to do what you are proposing, in reality, the gun crime rate would skyrocket! That is a fact and is easily proven by looking at different cities in America that have high gun control. Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles... The lest goes on. The places with the strictest gun control laws have the highest gun crime rates in the country. Plain and simple it doesn't work. If you chose not to believe that you are ignorant, if you didn't know that then you are uninformed. Which is it? 4w

texasmwade Holy crap! It's finally over! 7 hours and 45 minutes later we were able to turn that dang song off after a grand total of 218 plays because @hopkinsb23 and I made it to San Antonio! #SandstormChallenge complete!!! 1mon

texasmwade Well... Leaving El Paso headed to San Antonio with @hopkinsb23 We've decided to do the #SandstormChallenge! Meaning we are going to attempt to listen the the popular 1996 song "Sandstorm" by Darude for 10 hours strait. Also, in order for the Challenge to count it must be started from a Chic-Fil-A, and when stopping for gas or food the phone must leave the car with you and continue to play the song! Here we go... 1mon
