Re: am i eligible?

A felony deferred adjudication for Aggravated Assault is a permanent disqualifier to get a Texas LTC. if you get an Order of non-disclosure it would make you eligible. (or an expungement). Thank you, all great input and suggestions. this brings up a second question. if i apply for a texas and get d...

Re: FL: Active shooter at high school in South Florida

Take a deep breath before reading this article. It'll make your blood boil that this psychopath was coddled to this extent. "Crazy Boy" was an accurate description.

Re: Philly video: GG w/good SA empties mag, kills robber DRT.

I'd say the employee needs to get him the most expensive defense attorney he can afford to hire. He kept firing after the threat had ended. Emptied his magazine on somebody down, not facing him, and was not moving. Kind of like the pharmacist in Oklahoma, who defended, but kept on shooting after th...

Can you still request from DPS and get the CHL-16 via snail mail. My computer does not handle PDF's very well. https://www.dps.texas.gov/InternetForms/Forms/GS-5A.pdf It takes a couple months before the newest version will reflect any changes in the laws that become effective on 1 September, so if ...

Re: How to Handle Student's Failed Proficient Test

As jimd1981 noted, DPS allows students three attempts to qualify. I've only had four students not pass on the first attempt. Three passed on the second and the fourth passed on the third attempt. I don't charge them for multiple attempts. The three who passed on the second attempt simply shot with ...

Re: 'You're gonna kill me!': Dallas police body cam footage reveals the final minutes of Tony Timpa's life

Obviously this incident could have been handled much better, with professionalism and adherence to protocols on the part of the first responders. However, it irks me that the article buries this nugget in the middle as an afterthought: An autopsy ruled Timpa’s cause of death was a homicide, sudden c...

Re: Topographical maps

I'm a bit rusty on this so correct me if I'm wrong the distance between contour lines is 100ft? The closer the lines are to each other the steeper the terrain? The contour interval can be different between maps. It should be listed in the marginal data (the data usually at the bottom of the map). G...

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...
