Re: Timing…a Missing Component in Training

I am mindful of Mr. Wallace at the West Freeway congregation. After the assailant pulled the shotgun he didn't appear to be pointing it at anyone (but it is hard to tell from the video) until Mr. Wallace drew attention to himself, told him to put the gun down, and ineffectively tried to draw his own...

Re: Santa Fe ISD Guardian Program Approved

The article states that over 300 Texas schools have implemented the Guardian program. I suspect that number may actually include both Guardian and School Marshal programs. In any case there are 1035 Texas school districts, as near as I can tell, and this number probably includes charter schools. Wi...

Re: RDS v. Iron Sights: Not just for old blind guys

So how many of you guys carry, or plan to carry with a RDS mounted on your carry-gun? The points made about putting the time in to get acclimated certainly seem valid, as far as range use. In a defensive shooting scenario, can you get a shot on target as quickly? ;-) You need to read the Sage Dynam...

Re: Found - Low profile Kydex pancake holster - Partial review

It holds the gun very securely so I'm pretty pumped.... until I try to get a grip. The space between the holster and the grip is too tight to get my middle finger into a proper position under the trigger guard to get my full grip. I don't have large fingers. That's irritating - but Kydex is easily-...

Re: Red Dot Sights Co-Witness

I don't have a red dot on a pistol but I do on a couple of ARs. On the ARs I have flip up sights that are absolute but I don't run them at the same time. If I loose the RD then the BUIS pop up in the middle of the tube and all looks fine. On a handgun I don't want the stationary iron sights to be in...

Re: RDS v. Iron Sights: Not just for old blind guys

The simultaneously most hurtful/true thing I’ve heard about shooting red dot equipped pistols is “There are no more hard shots, just bad trigger presses”. OUCH! I'm looking at getting a XD 9 Service Model soon. Upgrading to RDS is high on the want list. Xdm 4.5 osp will get you a slightly longer ba...

Re: Found - Low profile Kydex pancake holster - Partial review

I received my holster last Tuesday. That night I tried it on and liked the way it blended in with my belt and was low profile enough that I could still get into my jean pockets. I did have to wear it at about 3:30 because the Kydex doesn't bend well so the angle where the belt attachment and the Kyd...

That’s great!

I hear the SHOT show venue is off limits to carry. You might let him know so he can verify.

Re: Church shooting in Tarrant County - White Settlement

I'm not going to jump into the deep end on this but we also have to understand that we are churches, places that welcome the hurt, the confused, the lost. It is a fine line we walk trying to be welcoming and trying to be safe. There is no doubt that things could have been done differently but that i...

Re: Church Meeting on CHL Topics

Although the Fort Worth site would have been the closest to me, I didn't make my reservation early enough. They are now sold out. So, I will be attending the Olney presentation on 2/8/20. It's 830 AM - 100 PM. Later that day, at 600 PM, they are going to be showing the movie "Faith Under Fire". I m...

I don’t get why "LDYJEDI" would be revoked.
"Jedi" is trademarked so I figure that is why.

I would emphasize penal code chapter 9 on use of force....early in the training and often.
De-escalation techniques.
Recommended book - "Verbal Judo"
There are several books with the same main title but different sub titles by the same author. Is there a specific one or are they all the same?
