Need info on qual for instructors

I cant find any official info on this.

Can someone tell me and give the reference to the following please...

Do instructors renewing our certificate have to shoot both revolver and semi-auto in two separate set of 50 round quals? Or do we only shoot with one?

Thanks,

tex

Re: One in the pipe for newbies like me

The fact is that so much training is expensive, far away and time consuming that it loses priority to many folks. Many ranges discourage drawing from a holster and rapid fire. I agree with everything you said up until this sentence. Dry firing is cheap, blue guns that are exactly like your gun are ...

Re: One in the pipe for newbies like me

Oh I agree. One can overthink all of this. HOWEVER.... We seem to bounce between two extremes. Either LTCers overthink the scenario or they do little or no training. You can never over train, in my opinion but there is a minimum level of competency needed. But you can not NOT train and expect that y...

Re: One in the pipe for newbies like me

Yes, never draw the weapon unless you are prepared to used it...even as a threat against force as per 9.04. And even then the very last thing one does before firing is to put the finger on the trigger. At all other times...and I mean ALL OTHER TIMES....the finger is indexed against the side of the f...

Re: Another Use Of Force Question

I'm discussing a passive trespasser here...just to exercise our minds with the analysis...... Yes you can "hold" the trespasser at gunpoint. Yes it is a technical use of force. But what are you threatening by pointing your gun at him ( in this specific scenario)? I'll answer that.... Nothi...

Re: Another Use Of Force Question

Yeah, there must be a reasonably perceived threat of force or deadly force to justify a necessary response. If the guy just sits down on your sofa, asks you for some refreshment and smiles, you won't be able to justify anything other than calling the police. But, as was stated, I would have the too...

Re: Another Use Of Force Question

Interesting question.

Here's my question...which force could you use and what is the legal authority for using force against a peaceful trespasser who refuses to leave?

Re: Loaded chamber in posted 30.07 locations legal?

LTC courses, as you know, consists of 4 modules of training one of which is the laws of handgun carry and another is safe operation of the gun. The safety module is only cursory and doesn't thoroughly cover the subject as would a separate course. Then there are other types of courses like the NRA pi...

I just need to say this to say it: Yep, I supposed I could have read the law word for word, then consulted counsel for a legal interpretation, which could or could not have been read the same way by a deciding judge/jury if it came to that....God forbid. My post was more of the rhetorical variety. ...

Re: Can civilians carry handcuffs?

As you say, there is no issue of printing as we have stated here numerous times before. The thing that divides OCers from CCers seems to be the desire for true stealth. Wanting to be stealthy while CCing is the only possible reason for worrying about the non-issue of printing. "what's the poin...

Re: Krogers signage question

Target has the same sign. What the sign does signify is that the proprietor has so little regard for the law that they can not even take the time to find out what the proper signage is necessary to properly convey their message to the public. If one is lawfully carrying then that sign means nothing...

Re: Conceal carry at work

So if the company handbook says no firearms allowed and you are caught carrying, it is a Class C misdemeanor. If you are told to leave at that point and you refuse, it becomes a Class A misdemeanor. Is this correct? No. You are confusing two things, criminal statutes and civil statutes. If a compan...
