TSRA Free gun law seminar

#1

Post by LDB415 » Wed Dec 26, 2018 9:18 am

I got an email from TSRA offering a free gun law seminar nearby on Jan. 10. I think it's to sell a subscription to the particular company's services. Anyone else get this? Is it worth going to? Are the offered services worthwhile? A good idea?

Nobody else got this? Nobody has an opinion on whether it's worth going to? If the offering is worthwhile?

I did not receive the TSRA notice. However, TxLS has a web page listing their seminars. There is a listing for 1/10/2019 that is very interesting.

I attended this session in Round Rock and found it to be very informative. Austin Davis is a very good presenter and his VR display is effective. Also, TxLS usually has a program attorney or two who talk about Texas self defense law and answer questions. If you are near Dickinson, this is worth your time.

That is the one. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to mention specific names or not. I presume they want to sell some sort of subscription service or something that won't be happy meal inexpensive and wasn't sure if it was advisable to get it or not.

I can't find the forum post, so I don't know if this is the same VFW post, but I seem to recall that one of the seminars was posted 30.06. and 51%.

No, this isn't the post I was referring to. I remember some people being upset that concealed carry wasn't allowed at a presentation talking about a self defense plan.
Thanks for posting It is still relevant. :tiphat:

My memory was jogged a little after reading through this thread.
I recall asking this company for a copy of their contract and was informed that they would give me a copy only after I signed up.
I didn't think that was a proper way to do business so I didn't pursue it any further.
It kind of reminded me of the companies trying to sell timeshares.

I don't think I've been in a VFW (or America legion) that wasn't posted 51%.

The sign may have been in the bar, but if you can take the drinks out of the bar area then the whole place is covered by the restriction. I have rarely seen where a building is split up unless there are separate suites and different businesses.
