Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

Reliable source informs, there will be yet another class offered in November. They're really picking up the pace. Apparently in response the Govenor's meeting on school safety.

Re: Best Carrier to ship a rifle to an FFL in FL?

If you like the rifle, don't use USPS unless you pack it very, very well. I see how they handle oversize, and long packages just about ever day and it's not pretty. They really hate them in those small postal jeeps. FedEx and UPS will usually do right. But again, it's all in the packaging. Cheap har...

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

I know one, possibly two of the Oct 29-30 attendees and they're pretty good shooters. Ya'll will have a good group.

I stayed in Round Rock last time and used up some points. Think I'll give Georgetown a try this time.

DPS just confirmed me for the October class.

If anybody else from the board is in that one, let me know.
I got confirmation for Oct. 29-30.
Glad to hear you got a class. :thumbs2:

I'm the week before you, Oct 22-23. Interesting they're running two that close together.

Re: New range coming to NW Harris County (HWY290-FM1960)

The main thing I'm curious about is if they allow/welcome outside instructors to come in and run LTC proficiency tests. And, if they'll host any interesting armorers courses.

They'd be right by my shop and handy, but I like the folks at Shiloh.

I drove by the other day. Interesting location. Least they'll have FD/EMS close by.

Re: Winchester/NRA Marksmanship - challenging you!

Decided I'm going to wait on some cooler weather before I finish the Sporting Clay sequence.

I might try bullseye after I figure which pistol I'm going to buy for it. :mrgreen:

Re: How Law Abiding are LTC Holders?

Are we still doing better than LEO’s? Yes. Was Pappas a LTC. Never saw that in any story. Me neither but he was a LEO for many years and LEOSA offers better right to bear arms than LTC. I asked about an LTC to a person who knew him back when he was competing in IDPA and they couldn't say. Can you r...

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

They run you thru the LTC test at the front of the course. This is apparently the 'weed out' which is scary to think that an LTC instructor can't shoot the LTC test clean, let alone pass w/ 90%. I was asking if we needed to do the full monty and also shoot a revolver. Asked and answered already. Tha...

Re: How Law Abiding are LTC Holders?

It's disturbing to dig into what those convictions are, but then I have to remind myself how small a fraction they are of the general populous...which in turn is disturbing all over again.

He should have done that first before getting his 'revenge'.

I'm sure they want the case closed so that justice may be served.

Believe he was a local IDPA shooter too, at least back in the day.
Can confirm the suspect was a local IDPA club shooter back in the late-90s early aughts. Hopefully, he'll be located without further loss of life.
