What happened to NRA Carry Guard training?

When Carry Guard was first introduced a few years ago, they had a rather extensive 2 or 3 day training class available. They weren't frequent, and were spread out across the nation, so finding one in the DFW area, or even Texas, was a slow process. Now, I can't even find a list of classes on their w...

Re: Flying to Colorado

The annoyance of having to keep an eye on the baggage carousel and the baggage office is also problematic. Roughly half of the time the bag comes out on the carousel with the big red tag telling everyone in the know that there's a firearm inside. Maybe it varies by airport or who's unloading the pl...

Re: Flying to Colorado

Yer a lucky fella to work for a company that allows you to possess a firearm on company business. I wouldn't say they "allowed" me to. My company doesn't allow firearms in our offices (30.0x posted, employee manual) and they are prohibited at "company sponsored events." If I had asked permission, I...

Re: Flying to Colorado

Just got back from Denver yesterday. Overall, the experience traveling with a pistol was uneventful, and basically as described earlier (see below). However, there was one unusual event. I was on a business trip, traveling with a colleague. The tickets were booked by our company travel agent, and th...

Flying to Colorado

I'm flying to Colorado via American in a few weeks and was looking for tips/advice. I've read through the rules for transporting a pistol via American Airlines - must be in a locked case, separate from ammunition, etc. How cumbersome/time-consuming is this whole process? You check in your bag, decla...

Traveling to AR, TN and KY

My family is traveling to KY for Thanksgiving, driving through AR with overnight stops in TN. I did some research on the carry laws in all three states and they appear to be more or less the same as TX. All three states have reciprocity agreements with Texas, and/or allow constitutional carry. What ...

Re: Instructor Renewal

After you shoot the proficiency, does it matter who submits the LTC-100? Can I do it for myself, after the other instructor signs it, or does he have to submit it?

Hypothetical - asked not to carry in public venue

Say you're attending an event at an event center owned/operated by your local municipality - a birthday party, civic club meeting, etc. While at the meeting, one of the organizers of the event tells you that you can't carry during their event. The facility is not posted, and it would be enforceable ...

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

I'm heading to the instructor's class this week and was wondering about places to eat lunch. When I was there for my LTC instructor's course many years ago, there wasn't any place close enough to the DPS facility to go and grab lunch during the day. Is that still case?

Instructor renewal should be all online this year.
I can't find any information on the DPS/RSD site about renewals; the "Instructor Update" section still references the 2017 renewal. Do you have another source of information?
