LTC-9

Hmmm. I an doing a Proficiency for an online student tomorrow, and just discovered that I cannot download the LTC-9 reporting form, presumably because I am not an online provider.

Can someone send me one?

Re: Calling any local CHL insructors

FYI --

Assistants can't score targets, per DPS. Also, the person who teaches the class should be able to run the Proficiency. I assume he/she is licensed.

Sorry I can't help; other commitments.

Re: On line classes have started

I doubt I will be asked to do any of these. I have been approached by several online providers already, and they seem to think I can do a private lesson and Proficiency for $30-40 and make more per hour than teaching a class of 16. You do the math. In addition, they want me to send them students. So...

Re: Firefox did not like this site

The problem is that the security certificate has expired. Change the address from https://..... to http://.... and it will work. Admin needs to renew the cert and reinstall. FYI -- websites having that cert are less likely to have passwords discovered by a packet sniffer, and will also place higher ...

Re: 9.22 Necessity

These situations have actually happened. Regardless of the law, if someone stops an active shooter and saves lives, and is not reckless, experience shows that public pressure makes it impossible to prosecute those people. This is not a guarantee, but the public appreciates someone who steps up for p...

Re: Oliver North to speak at 30.06ed Church

When I was a kid, stores routinely posted a sign that said, "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone." In the early 60s, for civil rights reasons, those signs came down, and the understanding was that, if you were open to the public, you had to serve everyone, or go out of business. I feel ...

Re: AT&T Stadium for Non-Scholastic/Non-Professional Event

It has been my understanding that if a govt entity leased property to a third party, like a concert promoter, that third party could post the property.

Maybe that is just the excuse they want to give us.

Re: M&P 380 Shield EZ

I have one that I use with students. Surprisingly, it is sligbtly bigger than the Shield 9mm. It is, probably, the easiest-to-rack semi-auto on the planet, at least as easy as the PK-380 or the P-238. Recoil is mild, the sights are good, accuracy is very acceptable, the trigger is decent. Not like a...

Re: Which organization do you think is best.

Yes on NRA and TSRA. They are very effective, but secondarily, I recommend SAF. They sue city and county entities over Constitutional restrictions, and make a lot of local politicians toe the line.

Re: On line classes have started

I saw a Facebook ad for one of these online providers. They claim that, after taking their $49 course, you just have to go to a local range for the Proficiency, and you will end up paying about the same as for a live course. I think that is a lie. The average cost of a class seems to be about $80. I...

No, I am not using the DW Valor for EDC. It is just for fun. I carry a Shield .45.

Re: Civilian Markmanship Program

I don't know why people are surprised at the pricing for the 1911s. I expected them to be north of 2K. $1050 is a deal. I've seen pristine ones at auction for 5K. If all you want is a cheap 1911, get one of those made in the third world. While some of these might be unissued, they MIGHT have been ca...
