Re: Do you keep one in the "pipe?"

How else would you carry?

Unless your sidearm is unsafe mechanically there is no reason to carry any other way....

Re: Waxahachie,Ferris, and Garrett

Didn't the legislature pre-empt all firearms legislation? Or was it only relating to carry?

Re: J Horn is acquitted of wrongdoing.

Gents, I have read PC Chapt 9 pretty carefully... I can't find a single place it tells you WHERE you can or can not shoot someone if you are justified in using deadly force...

If I have missed this somehow, would someone be kind enough to show it to me?

Thanks

Re: Texas Self-Defense & Deadly Force Law Seminar

Just a comment here... anyone who possibly can should attend Charles' seminar... I went last year with my lawyer and we both enjoyed it a lot... and learned a great deal... this should be a must for CHL instructors. The time flew by and we could have listened for 10 hours... it was that good... FWIW...

Re: First LEO contact - disarmed and unloaded

We need to consider what the law says here... First, it does not give LEOs blanket authority to disarm CHL holders... the officer must have "reasonable" belief that it is necessary for the reasons stated in the law... and it does NOT authorize a blanked policy of disarming everyone... an officer who...

Re: J Horn is acquitted of wrongdoing.

I have to admit I'm confused here... Texas PC 9.42 and 9.43 are pretty clear... please educate me... WHY would a grand jury have indited Mr. Horn? What would be the basis? Thanks Chuck The 911 tapes are going to be the issue here. 0:20 - Do you want me to stop them? 3:09 - I'm going to shoot, I'm go...

Would anyone by chance (or design) know if there is a forum for the Florida CWL similar to this Texas forum?

Re: Houston Livestock and Rodeo Show

Is a rodeo a professional sporting event? Or is it entertainment? Like a play etc.?

How is "Professional sporting event" defined?

Can You Carry?

It seems to me it is easier to ask forgivness than permission... If you don't think you will like the answer don't ask the quetion. FWIW Chuck Make sure you ask the person in charge if you're CHL will allow you to carry while participating in their program. I would be surprised if they allow firearm...

Re: Merry Chrtmas From the DPS

The DPS manual does not spell out when a trooper can or can't give a warning... it simply says for "minor offences" which covers a lot of ground... FWIW Chuck Most Troopers I know have a 5MPH tolerance for speed limits 70 and up. There are many reasons you may have been warned at 9 over rather than ...

Re: Carry in Courthouse

If you read the law it says with permission... it does not state WHO may give that permission. Whilst I would agree a judge can, I would think the clerk of court could as well... or maybe the janitor... or the bailiff, or the secretary in the clerks office... it is vague. FWIW Chuck If you're friend...
