Re: Lead time

pre-COVID / pre-social unrest the average time from a completed application (online application/digital fingerprints/LTC-100 uploaded) to plastic in hand was about 2 weeks. I'm not sure if this has changed much with the increased demand. It would be appreciated if you could post a follow up when you...

Re: Electronic Signature

Yes, DPS will accept digital signatures on the LTC -8 & LTC-100. I'm guessing that should be covered in the Instructor Class, as it's been asked here a couple times recently.

Re: Instructor range fee for Online students

Back to the OP's question, I think you'll find a variety of opinions regarding the online courses, and a variety of methods on how instructors are handling the range training & proficiency exams, or even if they are offering that option for online students. I focus on private lessons anyway, so for ...

Re: 22 caliber qualification

You won't find a reference specifically stating that .22 is 'allowed'; the 'minimum caliber requirement' was removed for the LTC qualification. However, for the School Safety Course there's still a minimum caliber of .38 or higher (the LTC qualification is done on morning of Day 1 as a pre-shoot, wi...

I'm very sorry for what you and your family are going through, but I'm also glad that your family has faith and knows the comfort of our Heavenly Father, and that He has strengthened your mother with vision of what lies ahead for her, in comfort and freedom from her earthly suffering. I'm praying th...

Re: Man who died from knee to neck was from Texas

What's tragic is that everyone- black, white and other was outraged at Floyd's murder... we all called it murder from the start. It's being used to fuel racism where there was not racism. Now it's "us against them" and whites this and whites that. :confused5 I saw several interviews- sadly, no real...

Re: Protests - the next level?

Did he say where? There seems to be Texas Children's Hospitals in Houston, Dallas, & San Antonio. I'm not seeing any news articles other than the usual medical related ones. I'm surprised that damage to a children's hospital wouldn't have been on anyone's news cycle in the past 24 hours, given the ...

Re: Replacing Lost Certificates

I understand your frustration, but in the aspect of 'customer service' I'd kindly suggest replying to their email with a PDF copy of their certificate (with a reminder for them to sign the bottom before uploading to DPS' portal, if your copy doesn't have their signature). Other than time, this optio...

Re: Man who died from knee to neck was from Texas

To be clear, I'm not saying the officer didn't contribute to his cardiac arrest. What I am saying is there's a lot more contributing factors than just the officer holding him down, & that to me I don't see a strangulation/pressure on his neck that would cause asphyxiation. Yes, I've watched a couple...

Re: Man who died from knee to neck was from Texas

Independent/Private autopsy report says George Floyd died from asphyxiation..... interesting (even though we figured that all along). Was somebody trying to cover for the cops during that first autopsy CNN posted? Independent autopsy also says there is no evidence in the body of the neck compressio...
