Re: Fayette County Clerk Office`

Government entities cannot post the signs unless the place is an off-limits place such as courthouses or schools. However, Federal property is always off-limits per Federal law and as such do not need those signs. Not to a nit-picker, but some do anyway. Unfortunately, it's still up to the courts t...

Re: "Gun-Buster" Sign Legal?

I would assume (I know, I know) that the LEO is pro LTC or he wouldn't be teaching the course. Having said that, I thought it odd that he would be so outside on this particular matter. Even in a structured course such as the LTC, I can always tell which parts the instructor has a passion about. In t...

"Gun-Buster" Sign Legal?

Disclaimer: I have read just about every post on this topic and I am aware that it has been discussed to death, so I am sorry to bring it up again. I am a very recent LTC Texan and the topic of prohibited locations was brought up in the class. According to my instructor (an active & senior local...

Re: It Begins (Updated 12/15/17)

Plastic in hand. Unfortunately for me, there just aren’t enough arms in the great state of Texas to force me anywhere near an area where shoppers congregate this time of year. I’ll just have to wait on the walk and satisfy myself with fueling my truck and knowing that my Amazon password is a little ...

Re: Purse Carry

As hinted at above, I have been married long enough to know which battles I can win (the ones she allows). I believe that I can get her to sit down with me and read through the forums (especially the Ladies Forum). I have found that, like my kids, since it comes from me it is suspect; get someone el...

Purse Carry

My wife is going to carry in her purse. We are done discussing it. When she leaves the (mall, store, hairdresser) she will put her hand in the purse and grip her XDs. Yes, even when pushing a shopping cart! Stop asking questions!! :roll: Sooooo - I have convinced her that it is dangerous to place a ...

Re: NRA Carry Guard - Level 1 Training

What would you suggest (if any) as a prerequisite for this course? It doesn’t sound quite like it is designed for someone who isn’t already fairly proficient with a handgun.

Re: Pre-CHL Stop

You seem like an intelligent sort...do you mean that you mean that you unload to clean just because the range rules say to?... :lol: . Actually, I have nowhere to keep a gun when I am vacuuming because - well, let me read forum rules again before I finish that sentence. Thanks for the kind welcome.

Pre-CHL Stop

As someone who is brand new to CC (my LTC is "print pending") I have thoroughly enjoyed the many topics here. Quite a few stir up memories and this is the only LEO encounter I have had that is gun related: About 7-8 years ago I was pulled over for speeding. It's the first time since the 80...

Re: Unlicensed Carry on Private Property

First of all, thanks for the thoughtful responses. Most of the answers are intuitive, but you know - lawmakers. I own an industrial service company. 95% of my customers have no idea where we are physically located but we do have the occasional walk-in. Because of the location I have always armed mys...

Re: Unlicensed Carry on Private Property

As an addendum, it amazes me how the responsibility I have undertaken brings questions to mind that I never contemplated before. After reading this forum for a while, two things strike me: 1. (unsurprisingly) The vast majority of gun owners take their responsibility very serious 2. The adage of you ...

Unlicensed Carry on Private Property

I couldn't think of a short way to ask the exact question in the title so here it is: Is it legal to carry a concealed weapon in my place of business? While it is open to the public I own the property. Also, can I allow others to carry while on my property? Both questions assume non-LTC holders but ...

It Begins (Updated 12/19/17)
