Re: New Instructor Training Questions

......... AJ, The DPS Instructors will go over their scoring procedure as part of the class, prior to the practical exercise. Step 1: Account for all 50 rounds. Just counting to ensure all 50 are there. (They do make allowances for what you described, where it's obvious several rounds went through ...

Re: New Instructor Training Questions

Another thing: most folks struggled with scoring. If you are not familiar with the scoring system or HOW to score 50 rounds, I recommend getting a B-27, shoot the qualification, and score using the 5-4-3-0 system on the upper left corner. Bottom line is you need to know how to score and you will be...

Re: Thief gets shot in the back

There's lots of excellent points already brought up on this thread. I'd offer the opinon that TPC 9.42 would have applied if the person robbed/stolen from (unclear from the article what actually transpired) had shot the perpetrator. Since it was another bystander who shot the perpetrator, TPC 9.43 w...

Re: Sweeney TX: 13 yo shoots 11 yo brother in head by accident

My children were taught from a very early age not to touch my guns, both were taught to shoot when they were 4yo, my daughter never had much interest, my son by the time he was 13 had his own guns and could hit an egg size target at 400yds, had a AR15 in his closet, I trusted him implicitly with a ...

Re: Class A Misdemeanor - Judgement "Set Aside"

Sorry but you can’t set aside a deferred adj., you can only set aside a straight conviction. I’m willing to bet this was Dallas Co., they are notorious for misusing “set aside” wording. Class A Misdemeanors have a 5 year ineligibility. Since his was 24 Jan 2014, would he be eligible to apply after ...

Re: Lonestar Armory Run and Gun (Biathlon)

Sounds like you had an awesome time, with lots of lessons learned. Here's an option to keep obstructions out of your muzzle ( https://www.amazon.com/Muzzle-Cover-Cap-Black-5-Pack/dp/B009PSZJ8Q ), if you have a standard size flash suppressor. They're designed to be shot off (you can safely fire the f...

Re: CONCEALED CARRY IWB HOLTERS

So since I'm so new to this, would it be better to go outside the waistband and wear larger shirts or is it better to go inside the waistband and get bigger pants? Is it really necessary to get larger pants if I carry IWB? Generally, yes you will need to go up one pant size (in the waist) to make r...

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

I can remember for sure but I think we are not allowed to carry into the classroom/building. Am I correct? Several people did when we reported to the class, but during inprocessing they asked everyone to leave them in their vehicles for the remainder, as several blocks of instruction include some s...

Re: TX: man shot during high school football game

While TPC 46.035 uses the specific language of "Premises" when prohibiting LTC carry at High School/Collegiate/Professional Sporting Events (thus a building or portion of a building), TPC 46.03 says: (a) A person commits an offense if the person intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly possesses or g...

Re: Hold over/under question

More accurately, the part about holding low 'could be' correct, depending on the distance the rifle was zeroed for. I'm thinking the author just got it backwards. It takes a pretty significant slope angle and a significant distance to really require much adjustment for slope. Uphill slopes & down hi...
