(Testimony of Floyd Guy Davis)

Mr. Liebeler.
Do you think it would be possible to practice with a high-powered rifle around Love Field?
Mr. Davis.
It would be right about Bachman Lake, around the lake itself, as long as the police didn't catch you. There is the river bottom right in there.
Mr. Liebeler.
Do you think it would be possible to fire out there, to sight a rifle in without having a police notice it or someone in the neighborhood notice it and calling it to the police?
Mr. Davis.
As long as you stayed 400 yards off the highway, there is places down there you could get that it would be possible.
Mr. Liebeler.
There are areas surrounding the field that are not built up to such an extent so that you could actually practice with a rifle in that area, is that correct?
Mr. Davis.
Yes.
Mr. Liebeler.
Have you ever heard of anybody firing a rifle in that vicinity?
Mr. Davis.
I have people all the time that have been practicing in the Trinity River bottoms around Dallas come out to the range and have been glad we opened that range so they could quit it because it is not a safe practice.
Mr. Liebeler.
Is that near Love Field?
Mr. Davis.
Yes. The Trinity River bottom is not far from there. It is actually between Irving and Love Field.
Mr. Liebeler.
How far is it from Love Field itself if you wanted to go to the Trinity River bottom and didn't have an automobile? Could you take a bus to Love Field or near Love Field and then walk that readily to the Trinity River bottom?
Mr. Davis.
Yes.
Mr. Liebeler.
One could do that very easily?
Mr. Davis.
It is a mile and a half.
Mr. Liebeler.
I don't have any other questions at this point. I do want to ask you if you can give me, Mr. Davis, Mr. Slack's address?
Mr. Davis.
I don't have it here, but I have some clippings at home out of a newspaper that has it there. He lives on Urbandale. If you have a Dallas phone book, I can probably get it out of the phone book.
Mr. Liebeler.
What about Price?
Mr. Davis.
Mr. Price lives on Rice Street in Grand Prairie.
Mr. Liebeler.
If you can think of anything that you would like to add to the record, I would appreciate it if you would indicate that.
Mr. Davis.
The only thing that I would like to say is that there were several other people mentioned that they saw Oswald on the 17th, but they said they didn't want to get involved in it. I don't know whether they were just talking or what it was.
Mr. Liebeler.
Do you know their names?
Mr. Davis.
Not no particular persons. My wife, I'm sure, can tell you' some. of them. She more or less runs the gun range through the week, and I am only there through the weekend.
Mr. Liebeler.
Thank you very much for coming in, Mr. Davis. I appreciate your cooperation. The Commission wants you to know that it appreciates the fact that you have cooperated with us in the way you have. Thank you very much.
