    Just say that GZ was pulled over in Texas over the weekend, he was packing heat and told the cop that he had a gun in the glove box. But, I can't see the video clearly enough. Is that a Chevy Avalanche that he's driving or a Honda Ridgeline? Any of you Avalanche owners confirm or deny this? It looks very dark, hard to read.

    Ahh, I came across some other websites where people say that it's a 2008 Honda Ridgeline.

    I'd be packing heat thru Texas also.

    That is a Honda Ridgeline - the supreme wanna-be of trucks.


    Also, WTF is the cop doing at the very beginning? Can he not get radio reception?? LOL

    There's a heat advisory in Texas today ... and it's got nothing to do with the weather. lol.

    Actually, high today of 103F but it feels like 113F due to the humidity.

    Humidity??? From what? This ain't Houston! :glasses:

    Weather.gov shows DFW to be around 45% humidity today - that's half of what is normal in H-town!

    But other parts of the country that get over 100F on a regular basis are about 10-15% humidity, that's why they have the extra heat advisory.

    That is definitely a Ridgeline.

    Since I imagine the Black Panthers want GZ dead, I would be packing heat as well.

    I wasn't too far away from him I guess on Sunday. I drove in around 3 PM on I-20 through Forney, and he was just a couple of miles north of me on Hwy 80.

    I have half a mind to drive up there and post a sign declaring Hwy 80 the Firearms Freedom Mile and put a sign up welcoming Mr. Zimmerman to Texas.

    I feel bad for him. No matter what we all thought of the trial, Zimmerman will be watched until the day he dies. Days after the trial he pulled an injured couple from a wrecked truck but that was not headline news, but his speeding came across my CNN news app?

    What gets me is that he's not a traditional "Texas Conservative" type of guy. He's not. In fact, one bio that I read shows that he registered to vote Democrat, so I find it to be so ironic that he's been painted to be something that's he's not. Namely, me or 50% of the guys on this site at least>

    Just had to say that, you know I love my fellow truck driving brothers regardless of what politics you hold ... just as long as you don't take away my God given rights to tell people what I think, arm myself to protect myself and my family, drive the vehicle of my choice ... and maybe drink it all down with a cold one every now and again.

    You may have just missed the headline when it happened. I saw the article about him "rescuing" that couple on MSN.com. I am guessing it was staged so as to sway public opinion of Zimmerman toward a more positive stance.

    Blue Ford "Exploder" rolled over on the freeway.

    I'm surprised the media reported it at all.

    Wow, turns out the cop may have either snapped a photo of zimmerman, or snapped a photo of his driver's license. ?? I guess that's ok to do if there is a reason to do it, like if you're going to send a photo to a supervisor to get some guidance in what to do. Otherwise, it's not something you're supposed to do, I guess. ??

    Cop Catches Heat After Zimmerman Texas Stop

    Some officers don't call out their stops or license plates until they're out of the car. Stupid in my opinion. We call ours out before we light up the car and update the location when we stop. That way our back up is already enroute.

    I also feel bad for him. I know up here if that young kid started a fight with a 28 year old Hispanic like ZIM the kid would be still alive today . but he would have had his AZZ kicked real bad.

    when your packing heat you have to be able to put up a good defense . If not then your weapon could be used against YOU !

    I hope he stays out of the spot light if possible.

    You've obviously never been to St. Louis. When we get 100F, it is ~75% humidity and it is horribly unbearable.

    I can vouch for this. I visited St. Louis 2 years ago (July 2011) and spent a week there. It was very humid. Very much like Houston (where I grew up) or anywhere along the Gulf coast.
