As txinvestigator said: I dunno. I DO know that deciding after the fact is too late. ;) It's definitely better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. My advice is: spend the money, take the CHL class, and then make your decision. Many people have come to my class all "gung ho" a...

I think you guys are getting a little too hung up on this. The fact is, as an instructor, I don't care whether you shoot from low ready, on target, draw from concealment, or standing on your head. All I care is that you SAFELY shoot the course of fire from the required distances and in the time allo...

Any employer has the right to prevent you from carrying in a company owned vehicle, regardless of whether you have a CHL or not. I doubt you could be arrested for it, but you can certainly be fired. Some companies think they might be held liable if CHL holders carry in company cars and then go all "...

The DPS did change the target, effective Jan 1, 2006, to the one you see here. The course of fire has remained the same.

That's why I keep MY hubby around. I don't clean guns, and I don't buy factory ammo. He cleans, AND he reloads... what more could a woman ask? Yup, he's a keeper.

I think everyone here has said the same thing - obviously, she has a problem with anticipating the recoil and flinching. You didn't say what caliber or kind of firearm she is shooting, but I can offer a few suggestions from the female point of view. 1. Many women have a problem with the flying brass...

You can definitely install it yourself! And you should be able to get one from any good gun dealer. I got mine at The Shooter's Club in Fort Worth, and they installed it on the spot. It took about 5 minutes. But, if you can't find one in your area, check out this web site: http://www.ajaxgrips.com/a...

People seem to worry more about the shooting proficiency test than any other part of the class. I have never had anyone to fail the test, but then I am not as much of a hard@$$ as some others. Really, the course of fire is incredibly easy, you only have to score 70%, the new target is allowing peopl...

You might consider losing the holster and going with the pocket clip. It attaches easily to the frame, and then you can securely carry your Glock on your belt, in your pocket, or in your waistband. I love mine!

There are a couple of things you need to find out. Since you were 17, it could be that you were prosecuted as an adult. If you were, and the charge was a Class A or Class B misdemeanor, then you are ineligible for 5 years from the date of the conviction. If, however, you were prosecuted as a juvenil...

Female CHL Instructor

Just in case you are still looking, I am a CHL instructor in Fort Worth. I am also an NRA certified Basic Pistol Instructor. I am very patient with new shooters (we all had to start somewhere!) and I always enjoy having other women in my classes. I teach at The Shooter's Club on NE 28th in Fort Wort...
