Re: Signed Up For Renewal. Questions

How long ago did you hear that. I'm going to guess it was an idea that got floated and then quickly killed when budget numbers were mentioned.

I tell my students it's fairly painless. Schedule your appointment. You're in and out in 10 mins. If only govt ran as efficiently as FAST does. :txflag:

Re: 1911's and revolver now permitted in NRA Carry Guard Classes

Agree completely. The number of students for a dedicated 3 day training course will be small. Three successive weekends and you might have something. Don't forget the 1,200 rounds students have to buy as well. That's a high round count for such a short course. I'm signed up for the instructor's cour...

Re: 1911's and revolver now permitted in NRA Carry Guard Classes

Another gun blog which is sometimes right, is pointing the finger at the NRA's PR firm for the 1911/Revolver decision. Certainly, the program's roll out is highly polished as most things from NRA are, but Carry Guard is a bit odd. NRA has (had?) a core of instructors and NRA Counselors to teach the ...

Re: Sig P320 as an EDC option

Picked up an Infidel Ultra Max holster from Comp-Tac for my P320 Carry. Very comfortable IWB holster. Personally, I'm hoping they'll make the X5 Carry grip modules available for order, as I like the feel of the X5 Full grip. I think it's the extra beaver tail length that I like most.

Re: NRA Doesn't Allow 1911's at New Classes

I'll give him a pass for shooting with a rebuilt hand. But, NRA should have selected another picture to illustrate the draw for PR purposes.

I'm trying to withold judgement until I actually take the instructor's course for this program. It's proving to be difficult.

Re: FN SLP (shotgun) - mini review

I was shooting Federal #8 that my dad had and some cheap Estate #6 (didn't like these at all) that need to be burnt thru. I ran about 100 rounds (40 of which were buckshot) all with the light piston. It was Monarch, but I imagine any similar brand equivalent will work. High Velocity Lead Shot, Long...

Re: Seven missing after USS Fitzgerald collides with merchant ship off Japan

A tragic loss of life that should not have happened. Keep those families and their shipmates in your prayers. Hate to think about the bottom line, but several careers are toast and the impact to the Navy mission is significant. She was a forward deployed asset. The Navy is short of ships as it is an...

Re: FN SLP (shotgun) - mini review

I picked up some higher speed 7.5 and it ate it all day long. I've got what's left sitting at my shop and will check what brand it was. I want to say it was Monarch, 'high brass', 1350 FPS, 7.5. Shot a little trap this afternoon, but conditions were miserable. Should have taken the SLP, might have d...

Re: DPS Update for Instructors

That seems reasonable, but I would expect DPS to still require proof of certification as a pistol instructor, since that is a requirement. If you don't send in such proof, and they then request it, that will slow down your renewal for probably a month. I checked both boxes, but still sent my certif...

Re: Seven missing after USS Fitzgerald collides with merchant ship off Japan

The two berthing compartments are the biggest worry. They'll probably find them there. Not the first or last collision in those waters south of major port facilities of Tokyo, Yokosuka, Yokohama.

Re: DPS Update for Instructors

You must attend a 1 day renewal class in Florence, TX. (half day classes.). Also you will need to send a CHL-100 for the proficiency portion only, you'll need to get another LTC instructor to sign off on it for you. DPS Range/training Center 820 County Road 240 Florence, TX 76527 Actually, I'm wond...

Re: DPS Update for Instructors

Can you clarify when we should submit our CHL-100s?

It's not mentioned until the last bullet of the PDF. Not part of supporting documents in the CHL-90 packet? Sent my packet in this afternoon sans CHL-100 just to get the ball rolling.
