Re: Instructor Renewal Shoot Fort Worth Area

My renewal did not say anything about shooting this time. Still wondering. Sandy, The RSD isn't the best at communicating... All instructors who are due for renewal this year will have to shoot this time. Click on the "Renewal for LTC Instructor", then scroll down to the "Required Documents" portio...

Re: LAw regarding armed robbery - what does "imminent" mean?

The element of imminence requires that a use of force against another can only be lawful if the attack being defended against is an imminent attack—one either actually taking place or about to take place right now. Once the attacker turns and runs, the attack is over. If you, the victim of the orig...

Re: LAw regarding armed robbery - what does "imminent" mean?

I was reading a news article about a recent armed robbery in Houston, and it made me wonder about a point in the law. A guy was loading groceries into his hatchback when he noticed an armed man was standing next to him. The robber pointed the gun at him and demanded his wallet, which he handed over...

Re: Instructor Renewal

Nope, same here. No email for prints. Are we not shooting this go-round? :confused5 Looks like we are. I received this email today: Our records show that your Instructor Certification expires on 12-31-2019. We are still missing your Proficiency Demonstration (LTC-100). The requirement is that you s...

Re: What gun is this in this bank robbery?

The Hays County Sheriff's Dept posted the first bank robbery on the Nextdoor app several days ago, asking the community for leads.

When/where was the second robbery, & was it the same description of the perp & gun?

Re: Hypothetical - asked not to carry in public venue

If I'm understanding this scenario correctly, it is a city owned facility, but has been rented out for a private event such as a birthday party/conference/etc. As such, the city is prohibited from posting 30.06/.30.07 or otherwise prohibiting carry by a LTC (unless its already prohibited location). ...

Re: Can I find out if an individual has a LTC

Don't want to ask him, he threatened to shoot me. I saw he was arrested for having a handgun while being arrested for DWI. Was the threat witnessed or recorded? If not, its your word against his and that carries some risk as well. No evidence that's why I didn't push the issue. I told a deputy on s...

Re: Can I find out if an individual has a LTC

Don't want to ask him, he threatened to shoot me. I saw he was arrested for having a handgun while being arrested for DWI. I hope you filed a police report that he threatened you with deadly force. You could also file for a protective order so if he comes onto your property you can call police. :ia...

Re: CC question towards mall policy?

If they choose not to post signs that comply with the requirements of 30.06 and / or 30.07, then any other signage is meaningless to an LTC holder. They could also choose to notify folks orally, or to hand out cards to everyone with the required verbiage. There is also a slight difference between 3...

Re: Nervous LTC test

Definitely take your time during the test (...but don't go over time for each engagement..). I'd suggest having someone set a 2 second timer, & practice getting off your first shot (dry firing) within that 2 seconds, & practice until you can get it under 2 seconds without moving the sights off your ...

There will be difficult days brother. Few of us can even fathom what you are experiencing. Please try to remember the years you had each other as best friends, confidants, and the love you shared. The past three years do not define your time together here on earth; God blessed her with a husband who...
