Re: TX: Pair shot while breaking into vehicles

Glad to hear of the good outcome. If you ever want to post a detailed after action report, I'm sure we would all be very attentive.

Re: HB 497 - Add Types and Uses of Ammunition to Required LTC Course Curriculum

I think it's important to note that the existing law does not require any certain type of holster, and we here on the boards have pondered ad nauseum as to whether this holster or that fits the wording of "belt or shoulder holster." Forcing LTC instructors to cover holster types when no specific de...

Re: Conceal Carry at 18 in Texas

This is like the example of Texas LTC reciprocity w/ New Mexico. They recognize our license, but not for anyone 18 - 20, regardless of military service or not.

Under Texas law, we only recognize 18 - 20 for active military, guard, texas guard service.

Re: S&W S6hield Front Sight Removal

After a few frustrating trips to the range with my S&W M&P Shield 9mm, I realized that the front sight is badly misaligned, to the point where it's grouping 6+ inches to the left at 7 yards. After Googling it, I see that others have reported exactly the same issue. The manual states that the front ...

Re: Sig 365 question

It's a good thing they make so many different guns. Everybody's tastes and/or hands are different. At least by our numbers, the PMR-30 outsells every other Kel-Tec P series (and most buy the PMR-30 as a range toy). SCCY are made in America, so they have that going for them. Not that other competitor...

One more question: do they hand you a certificate at the end of the training? Mail you a certificate or some sort of Trainer ID Card?
As stated, they'll mail the certificate to you. Should only take a couple of weeks. Make sure you copy the password on the back before you frame it :lol:

No mag safety. There are some really good holster options out now.

Anybody hear anything about what hoops we'll have to jump through for renewal in the later portion of 2019?
And the answer, I'm told, is apparently nothing. That particular topic didn't come up during my two days up there. Figured there'd be the occasional program update to review.

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

Only took 9 days from Austin to Houston and arrived a little crumpled, but all is well. Anybody hear anything about what hoops we'll have to jump through for renewal in the later portion of 2019? I hoping a separate trip to the Austin area isn't required if we also have to go up this time for LTC In...

Hybrid?

Can someone explain why this word is necessary?

Thanks!
Marketing a common sense solution to the sheep requires words that make them feel better, or obfuscate reality so as not to upset their world view.

Re: Interesting gun bills filed for 2019 session

Manufacturing Title 1 firearms is one thing. Manufacturing anything covered by the National Firearms Act is an entirely different kettle of fish - at least when it comes to entertaining the federal prosecutors.

May not be the way it should be, but is most definitely the way things are.

Re: QuikTrip hiring 'hybrid employees' who can work while armed to deter crime, keep customers safe

In Texas you could certainly run a similar program under LTC, but I imagine they would require some additional training. Having an LTC is great. Being competent enough to satisfy the company's comfort level / liability insurance may be another issue.
