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.

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

I recently purchased an M&P 15 Sport II and really like it, but want to add some additional padding to the stock. I've found several pads from Magpul, Limbsaver and others. However, they always state compatibility as "will fit CTS mil-spec" or "ACS-L", etc. I have no idea wha...

Re: Cannot Be Recovered By Any Other Means

Personally, I would definitely use deadly force, if needed, to save the life of me and my family. Probably also to protect someone else's life, depending on the situation. Protecting my stuff, maybe, but probably not in most cases. Protecting someone else's stuff, definite no. I heard someone put i...

Re: Alien Gear Shape Shift Holster System

I have thought about this, but haven't purchased one, so I'll be interested in your experience. I currently carry a Ruger SR9c in a Fobus paddle holster. While I like the flexibility of the Shape Shift, the paddle configuration appears to stick out from the body much further than the Fobus. I like t...

Re: Instructor proficiency - LTC-8?

In the instructor renewal class I attended, we were told that an LTC-8 was required. That does answer the question, what they do with it is not under my direct supervision. Someone else made the same comment - about being told this during the renewal class. However, when I called RDS, I was told it...

Plastic clips for cardboard targets

I'm looking for some plastic clips to attach a cardboard target to 1"x2" uprights. I think I saw these in use at the DPS range in Florence. Does anyone know what these are called and where I could find them? An internet search on "plastic clips for cardboard targets" didn't come ...

Re: Instructor proficiency - LTC-8?

Final update - we both received our renewed certificates yesterday - right at a week after we submitted the LTC-100s. Unfortunately this doesn't answer the question about whether the LTC-8 was required or not. The other guy submitted one for me; I submitted one for him as well, but I used his LTC nu...

Hypothetical situation - your workplace has a "no guns" policy in their handbook, and 30.06/30.07 signs posted at each door. However, they decide to let LTC holders carry at work if they meet certain requirements. What would you be willing to accept in order to carry while at work, if you ...

Re: Instructor proficiency - LTC-8?

I'll give it a week and if my online status hasn't changed (i.e. still says waiting for proficiency), I'll call them again.

Related - I was pleasantly surprised that when I called the first time - around noon - the wait time was only four minutes.
