Look soon. Your local PD may only hold one CPA a year. Here in central Texas, the CPA classes fill up months in advance.

Texas agencies cannot prohibit carrying unless there are special circumstances. Before my wife retired from the Teacher Retirement System, I carried openly whenever I visited her there.

Re: Modifications to your carry gun. Thoughts?

Personally -- and this is my personal opinion -- I don't modify my carry weapon, and I do not carry hand loads. I don't want any prosecutor or attorney having even an inkling of "He wanted to be deadlier than necessary!" I do not fault those who choose to put a lighter trigger on, however...

Re: .45ACP is still my choice for handgun caliber

I don't carry my 155mm. It carries me AND provides ballistic cover. :biggrinjester:

Re: Need A Fix For A Paddle Holster

My first pistol, which I bought from my wife's recently widowed aunt, came with a Fobus paddle holster. I really liked being able to easily remove the holstered pistol from my belt. After wearing it for a few years, and doing some research, I came to understand that the attachment point where the ri...

Re: EDC revolver?

My wife recently replaced her Ruger LCR .38 with a Walther PPS M2 LE. I'm using the Ruger to backup my S&W M&P M2.0 9mm 5inch until I can get better BUG.

Re: Parkland survivor David Hogg

My younger brother was 18 in 1971 when he left on the bus for Camp Pendleton. I was 21 in 1973 when in enlisted in the 1st Cavalry Division. We both ended up retiring from our respective services.
