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

After the School Marshal fiasco, they probably want LTC Instructors extolling the virtues of frangible ammo above and beyond any other types.

But really, telling people to carry hollow points over FMJ for self defense would be a good thing.

Re: New Instructor Training Questions

Completed the class yesterday, some after-action thoughts: The DPS Trainers are some great guys, and one gal. The facility is top notch, and I would love some time on the driving track... but that is a different animal. The PowerPoint from the RSD is ATTROCIOUS! Covering 46.035(b) including (b)(4)(5...

Re: Star Telegram poll on Constitutional Carry - go vote

I swear that last time there was a bill that created 30.08 and 30.09 for Unlicensed carry... so that some store owners who are nutjobs would have to take up all of their storefront space with ugly signs. I really liked that. Whatever we do, we need to change the wording of 30.06 and .07 again to mak...

Re: New Instructor Training Questions

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?

Re: A test for Anti-concealed carry

Psychological Projection is the most common psychological phenomenon in humans. Nearly every anti-gunner that I have ever know and had some sort of relationship with who says something about non-LEO carrying and either "snapping" or just shooting someone for no reason, that individual has had a temp...

Re: HB 357 - Unlicensed Carry (Stickland)

That is quite the bill.... Sheesh there is a lot of distributed code. Looks like it makes constitutional carry apply to all, and makes 30.06 and 30.07 only apply to 'unlicensed persons'. It would likely only make it through with additional provisions for what a license holder can and cannot do- but...

Re: Well... there goes Constitutional Carry

Blew a potential 21-10 margin in the Texas Senate for 2019 with at least Burton and Huffines losing to democrats. So that is 19-12 - exactly enough for the 3/5 required to pass a bill... but wait, Sen. Huffman is extremely weak on the 2A. Don't think so? Question: Why can't you open carry on a coll...

I’m already a part owner of a Security Company and am always on duty, so only subject to 46.03 myself.

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

For those of you in upcoming School Safety Instructor classes, when did you apply? I saw somewhere that 12-18 months was not unheard of... yikes!

Re: LTC Instructor Timeline 2018

Applied June 27
Instructor LTC-90 form confirmed received on July 9
Received class invitation email on October 30th for a class the first week of December.

I am aware of a class in mid-November, and I am in Early December, so they certainly do them more often that a few times per year.

I have a 5 year old daughter and two sons. Daughters are a pain in the rear end. Sounds like this guy learned this lesson too late.

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: New Instructor Training Questions

Agree... bring snacks and drinks, especially on range day; take notes; ask questions. On the shooting qualification, it seemed several guys were only familiar with semi-autos and struggled with the revolver. We had more fail round 1 than I would've guessed. If you're in that camp you might want to ...
