Priorities for 2019 legislative session

My thoughts for those things that would have the most significant impact on my day-to-day carry, in priority order: 1.Expand the protection that prohibits a person from being fired just for having a gun in their locked car to also cover licensed carry on the premises, even while at work. In other wo...

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

How did you find out what number you are on the list? I called them. There was a problem with documents from several of my past classes not uploading correctly, so they didn't have an official record that I met the four-class requirement. I called them to get that straightened out and they told me ...

How many acres needed for shooting?

My wife are getting to the age that we're starting to talk about what's "next" in our lives. One thing we've been talking about is buying some acreage that would allow me to setup a small range for my personal use and an occasional shooting and/or LTC class. Someone once told me - and I don't know w...

Re: On line classes have started

The form seems to imply that the proficiency is separate from the instruction - two different signatures to indicate you spent 1-2 hours in instruction, then did the proficiency. I could be wrong, of course, but that's the way the form comes across to me. Also, I would hardly consider just shooting ...

Re: On line classes have started

The form states 1 - 2 hours. I was interested mainly in requirements as to content. I can't open the Online Course Provider Course Outline (PDF) - the password must be different vs. the "normal" course outline. I'll check my notes when I get home, but I don't remember any specifics being discussed.

Re: On line classes have started

It's been a long time since the renewal class in August, but I don't remember there being any specific requirements for the range instruction portion. Are there?

Re: 147th Annual NRA Meeting in Dallas

I got to go Friday all day. This is when POTUS and VP were there (though I was in the exhibit halls only). Do you know what I noticed? * Tens of millions of dollars worth of merchandise * Thousands if not tens of thousands of armed NRA members in the exhibit halls * Yet a very small police presence...

Re: Company Truck Carry

Here's my thought on why it may be against the law, and I'm no lawyer either. The truck is their property. I feel like a company policy against carrying in the truck might be similar to a business owner verbally telling me I can't carry in their store. Once a business owner tells me that, I can no ...

Re: 147th Annual NRA Meeting in Dallas

Hello, I am a producer for German TV in the U.S., and given the topic of this discussion, I thought I'd share a story we are working on. Given the wall-to-wall coverage of student gun reform protests recently, we are working on a story about high school students/teenagres who are arguing to defend ...

Re: 147th Annual NRA Meeting in Dallas

Several people have mentioned taking the DART light rail to the convention. If you do, read below; in short, stay concealed. https://www.dart.org/riding/opencarry.asp CARRYING ON A DART VEHICLE Customers can still carry a handgun when riding DART. However, if someone is carrying openly, bus or rail ...

Re: Mike Pence @ NRA Annual Meeting

If the arena is part of the convention center, which is owned by the city of Dallas, state law indicates that lawful, licensed carry cannot be prohibited by posting 30.06 or 30.07 signs. Under what law do they decide to ignore that? I'm pretty sure state law doesn't add "unless the VP or Pres is th...

Re: Denial

Just like any business, I would think instructors have the right to deny service for any reason, as long as it isn't one of the "protected classes" - race, religion, etc.

Re: Good afternoon, Teaching first class

Make sure you have the correct "long" B27 targets, not the "short" or "econ" versions that some places sell (and don't always clearly identify). I created a couple of checklists for my own use: 1. A checklist of all the materials I need for a class (all the things you mentioned, and anything else yo...

Re: Magnetic Vehicle Mount

I would guess your instructor was thinking about the holster requirement for open carry, even in your car. Using something like this would raise the question "how concealed is concealed?" If it's tucked way up under dash, is that concealed? I don't think that would meet the criteria, but that's just...
