Re: Failing a student?

Good job Vol Texan. My range safety briefing includes a warning that sweeping anyone with the muzzle will result in your being off the relay. They are also told that, if I have to warn them more than twice that they are getting too close to sweeping someone, they'll be off the relay. I do tell them...

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

I have been on the waiting list for the class since March 2017. I just called DPS and they said there is no update on my class. isn't one year wait excessive? I signed up this January and was told I'm 140 on the list with 5 more classes "tentatively" scheduled for 2018, max of 12 per clas...

Re: RSD lost my LTC-8

At the retraining class the admin person acknowledged there was a problem with uploads on the system. I seem to recall that she said it seemed to happen more often with non-IE browsers. Even though the system said they were uploaded and you got the mail it never made it. I always use Chrome, so tha...

Re: RSD lost my LTC-8

If I do not receive the LTC 8 email confirmation within 48 hours then I just resend it. It has been several months since I have had to do this. Until my class two weeks ago. I resent it 3 times 2 and 3 days apart. I did get a confirmation yesterday, Monday. In fact, I received 3 of them! That tells...

Correction. It seems that it does not accept a copy and paste, but it worked when I typed it in.

Which one worked - the original or the corrected?

I only received one email.

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

Same process. Be prepared to wait. From what I was told, a large number of LEOs signed up for the course. I'm at 10 months, if my memory is correct, and waiting. Just finished signing up and was told I'm 140 on the list with 5 more classes "tentatively" scheduled for 2018, max of 12 per c...

Re: RSD lost my LTC-8

I have not experienced a problem uploading LTC-8s, but others on Forum reported that DPS acknowledged a bug in the program. This was quite sometime back. Chas. Unfortunately, the issue wasn't with the upload. In each case, the document appeared to upload successfully, I received the on-screen messa...

RSD lost my LTC-8

Not sure if there is anything to do about this, but I wanted to pass it along. I was following up with RSD about my School Safety Instructor application, which requires you to have taught at least four LTC classes within the past year. They responded that they didn't have any record of two of my cla...

School teacher with LTC

As I understand it, the Motorist Protection Act prevents employers from prohibiting employees from keeping a gun in their locked car in a company parking lot. There are some exemptions from this protection, one being a school. Therefore, the MPA does not cover a teacher keeping their gun in their ca...

Re: Blind student

As an instructor, we have the right to refuse to teach someone, correct? Are there limitations on the "why" for that refusal? Personally, I would not feel safe trying to administer the shooting proficiency to a blind person I did not know unless they were the only student, we were the only...

Re: Winchester/NRA Marksmanship - challenging you!

My wife and I completed the DE level for three Pistol CoFs - Pistol, Defensive Pistol 1 and Defensive Pistol 2 (which doesn't appear to be available any longer). We both gained several benefits from it: Gave us a reason and purpose for going to the range. Required doing more at the range than just s...

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

Is signing up for this class handled the same as the LTC Instructor class - submit your application with fee, wait for an email with a class date, then take it or wait for the next available date? Does anyone have any recent experience with how long of a wait this could be? I believe the LTC Instruc...

Re: M&P 15 Sport II - what type of stock?

I think I've determined that the original stock on my M&P 15 is an AR-Stoner M4 stock (specifically an AR-Stoner M4 6-Position Mil-Spec Diameter Collapsible AR-15 Carbine Synthetic Black). At least that's the only one I've found that matches it visually.
