    IMO, the problem is they don't pay enough for ANYONE to live along the Southwest border. It's a pretty desolate place.

    Must have lived there a LONG time ago since you can't even spell it.:rofl:

    Yes, it has its perks, but not enough to move to Laredo, or anywhere on the southern Texas border for that matter. IMO, anyway.

    If I had to live in Laredo, or even El Paso, I don't think they would want me to be armed.....

    During a short lived career as an OTR trucker, our yard was in Laredo. Was always glad to leave.
