Re: GUN SAFETY COURSE FOR ILLEGAL CONCEALED CARRY?

I've had 4 or 5 of these, usually for unlawful carry or unlawful discharge. This happens all the time. A lawyer makes a deal with the DA to drop a Class A or B misdemeanor offense to a Class C. The offender takes a gun safety class and pays a fine. The offender ends up paying about $2G, but does not...

Re: Range Instruction Content for Online LTC Proficiency Test

That is up to you. Typically, it would be either 1. For a weak student, whatever intermediate training would bring them up to the level of the Proficiency, OR 2. For stronger students, whatever more advanced training you see fit, to use up the time. I always tell people to bring 100 rounds of ammo. ...

Re: Had a Squib

I have seen several squibs with my classes. All of them with Winchester White Box. Last year I had an issue with a brand new Ruger 9mm (not extracting at all). I called Ruger, and she asked, "were you using Winchester White Box?". They seem to have a reputation.

Re: Administrative Code

I have always understood that to mean range facilities, so that they can, if required, verify the proper distances.

Re: 2019 New LTC Processing Timeline...

So what has changed to make a process that used to be quick and easy become a slow bureaucratic nightmare again? The difference is load. Sometimes they are hit with thousands more applications than normal, and don't have the staff to handle it. Right now there is a surge going on, caused by several...

Re: .22 pistol choices

Walther makes a licensed copy of a Colt 1911 in .22 (not a conversion). It comes with a threaded barrel, and racks like a real gun. It loads and shoots everything except CCI Quiet, and is at least as accurate as a Ruger. It accepts standard grips from a 1911.

Why Red Flag laws are unconstitutional

Judge Napolitano makes a very clear case why Red Flag laws are unconstitutional. Good historical background.

Re: Residential Security Door Suggestions?

Easiest way: get brackets from Amazon to mount on both sides of the door, and drop a piece of 2x4 across the door. You'll have to relieve the moulding and paint a little. Use 3 inch screws to get deep into the studs on either side of the door. This is very strong, probably stronger than any type of ...

Re: Oberlin College Forced To Pay Local Bakery $11 Million In Racial Hoax Defamation Case

Due to punitive charges, that amount has now been raised to $44 M, although that will likely be appealed. Finally, Social Justice loses out to Justice.

Re: NRA CCW Instructor class

In any case, instructors in Texas could not certify someone for an LTC unless said instructor was certified by DPS. In many states, CCW instructors are not certified by their states, but just have to be pistol instructors, either NRA or LEO. The LTC class could not have anything removed from it, onl...

Re: Stamp honoring WW1 soldiers, doughboy has no rifle.

There are snowflakes everywhere. Another reason they should not have eliminated the draft. I admit that I might not have enlisted, were it not for the draft, as I was starting a career, but I would have missed a life-changing experience. The majority of men under 40 have probably missed that experie...
