Re: Priorities for 2019 legislative session

1. Remove all off-limits areas for LTCs; 2. Exempt volunteer security personnel protecting schools and students from the Texas Private Security Act. Chas. :iagree: While I agree with reining in how governments can hire lobbyist and how they define their off-limit areas I think that we will serve th...

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

I don’t know how to promote it any more than sending letters to every superintendent in the three service centers in my area, at not a small cost. I got four responses. Two decided to use my services. I’ve broken even, so that’s good. I was just expecting a little more interest. Maybe with time, an...

Re: Someone push me...

I am not very active anymore but still have my Yaesu HT and mobile. I used to be a storm spotter with the South Plains Storm Spotting Team out of Lubbock. I had my HT and mobile hooked up in my truck so I could monitor the net and use the HT to communicate with other spotters near me without having ...

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

I’m not sure about y’all’s area but several of us out in the Lubbock area haven’t seen a lot of clamoring for SSC classes. Because it's poorly-promoted - period. Heck, I'm a gun- and training-enthusiast who works at a school and I hadn't even HEARD of this qualification until I just *happened* to c...

Re: Light weight summer shirts for concealed-carry

I tried one of those on. Unfortunately they did not fit me right which is odd because an XL is usually no trouble. My wife ended up going to Academy and getting a bunch of the Magellan shirts. $12.74 each. They may have been on a BOGO1/2. They're not square cut. I like them because they are lightwei...

Re: Colorado Dem candidate pepper sprays himself video

Pepper spray in an enclosed area with how many kids with asthma? My DILs both have asthma. They don't carry pepper spray for fear they used it they would get a good wiff and it would shut them down. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/238262.php "In rare cases, it can cause cyanosis, a bluish ...

Re: Intuit Credit Card Processing

I have been using one for a few years now for classes. Never had a problem. I don't sell firearms, just training. I don't know how they would know what I'm selling anyway. I put in an amount, the customer signs, the transaction is accepted. No where does it ask for what was sold and I don't use the ...

Re: new idea?

Since the divide feels pretty evenly split, maybe we should try a split system. Schools with armed personnel and those with the current hide and hope mentality, within the same district. Let parents decide what they want... and in a few years (and after shootings continue at soft target schools) I ...

Re: OK: Oklahoma restaurant shooter had license as armed guard; attack stopped by 2 armed men

I wonder why both of the men who confronted the shooter did not have their weapons on them at the time? Obviously they were ready willing and able to use them. Maybe the restaurant was posted and the good guys had stored their firearms in the trunk while they were eating. TITLE 21 § 1290.22 - BUSIN...

Re: Does Having An LTC Make You An Implied LEO?

Someone else's property, and probably most of my own, not likely. Saying that, I live out in the country. If I was driving by my neighbor's house or up to my own and saw someone hauling it off I'd be inclined to call the sheriff, set up a "perimeter", and encourage the offenders not to do anything s...

Re: The "Riot Mentality" of School Shootings

I recently came across this article and it made a lot of sense. In a nutshell, school shooters seem to be following the rioter mentality.

Re: Women’s Holster Recommendations

Not a woman but my wife is and she carries everyday. In the winter she wears an Undertech hoster shirt. Now that it is warmer she wears the Undertech compression shorts. She really likes them. You do have to understand that my wife while well dressed, doesn't wear the latest trends. When she is wear...
