Re: Attorney Adrew Branca Discusses Judicial Ruling Involving the Tueller Drill

It's a shame that the so-called "21 Foot Rule" is so widely accepted. I used that term and distance for many years until I saw the video below. Dennis Tueller states that there's nothing hard and fast about 21 feet. In fact, he never referred to it as the 21 foot rule. It's more than a little scary ...

Re: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick attacks NRA and Supports expanded background checks

Patrick must be feeling some heat. I received an email he sent to his email list trying to justify his position. He still contends he's right and the NRA is wrong. Like Bonnen, he touts his NRA rating (A+) that was based upon his track record, but apparently thinks that can't change.

Re: Dillon drops the XL650 in favor of XL750

Here is a video of the Dillon XL750 primer system. It isn't "like" the 550, it's identical to the problematic 550.

Re: Speaker Bonnen Appoints 13 Members to House Select Committee

Bonnen screws Texas gun-owners again. The Bonnen Committee consists of: A-Rated Republicans = 7 D-Rated Democrats = 4 (Two should be rated F; i.e. Nevarez and Moody.) F-Rated Democrats = 2 Be sure to let your Representatives know how you feel about Bonnen. BTW Dennis, the NRA is not a fringe organi...

Re: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick attacks NRA and Supports expanded background checks

When will people learn that if someone is in a position of power or wealth they can't be trusted. Think about all the people you know who are wealthy. They will never sacrifice wealth for freedom. They have to much to lose. Do you think someone with money is gonna stand shoulder to shoulder with yo...

Re: Gov. Abbott Issues Executive Orders

I will withhold comment on the specific Exec. Orders, but I will say this much. The iWatch Suspicious Activities Reporting Network needs to be revamped to require that the reporting person to provide their name and contact information. This information should be immediately verified and if this is n...

Re: Carry inside the gallery or in a hearing at the Texas Capitol

So I was having a conversation with one of my new city council members about prohibited places. He mentioned he was trying to see what he could do to remove those ugly 30.06/30.07 signs at city hall when he's there for council meetings. I told him I agreed and that the signs should ONLY be posted d...

Is anyone aware of changes to the LTC curriculum due to recent legislation?
Instructors will probably know in a few days. Our renewal materials and exam will be available soon. I expect there to be some changes.
