Re: Lubbock CHL Instructors

Do y'all have any recommendations for an instructor for a new chl? I have noticed a couple sources who have advertised their price for the chl around here and I'm not willing to spend 150+ on a chl class. I don't care if they feed me lunch or take me on a horse ride. I just want to take the class a...

IIRC, they started as an instructors association. Don't think so. Even now, with the exception of the URL address, the only place Instructor appears in their name is in the bylaws. Everywhere else, their name is given as Texas Concealed Handgun Association. About a year ago, this group had merger d...

This subject comes up here every once in awhile but I don't recall anyone on this forum who ever had the occasion to refuse consent during a traffic stop. If there is someone who refused I am interested how the LEO reacted. I refused after a Highway Patrol officer out of Lubbock wanted to search my...

Other options would be a Taurus lightweight .38 with shotshells, or a similar S&W. I carry an old .38 loaded with CCI rat shot whenever I have a group on one of my canoeing or kayaking trips. Otherwise, during snake season I keep it in the door pocket of my pick-up. The .38 rat shot works great, as...

Pretty strange. Will await more on "totality of the circumstances". Being marginally acquainted with the people involved, I can tell you there is a lot more than is being reported currently. In addition to the lack of info regarding the circumstances of the event, there is a lot of personal and fam...

We (CHL forum members) could create the Texas Professional Concealed Handgun Association. We would elect a board of directors and create professional levels of training, both practical and classroom. We could have members apply for levels of different levels of status that show progressive amounts ...

If the facts are anything at all like what's presented in the story, it's a good shoot, IMHO. Of course, the Lubbock paper is already mixing up the terms "victim" and "offender" while they sing praises to someone who broke into another's home at 3 AM. Friends mourn death of shooting victim BY robin...

I have in my files a form to be signed by a physician who gives out such advice. The general idea is that if the physician is going to give out such advice, they need to sign that they are trained and knowledgeable in the area of "expertise." When I get back to my office, in a day or two, I'll see i...

There's the "majority party" among the elected, the "minority party" among the same, the electors of the "majority party," AND the electors of the "minority party." Our constitution does not spell out a two party system. That is an assumption that we make based on the last hundred + years of histor...

Uh...Texas law as to what constitutes effective notice does not make any distinction between private residence or public business.
