The Texas Rangers is a 144-man team that represents the pinnacle of Texas Law enforcement. “You don’t mess with a Ranger” was something I heard time and again when I was in Texas recently, researching STANDOFF (2012).

Their badge is cut from a Mexican five peso silver coin, the Cinco Peso (the one pictured is a bar coin copy). It’s a small badge by most standards, your average law enforcement badge in the U.S. being mostly and big, gold and back-the-hell-off official-like.
