I do not have a hard answer for you (sorry) but the event is held at a house of worship. Unless posted, you can carry.
Frankly, I would find it VERY ironic (and hypocritical) if they put up silly 06 or 07 signs at such seminar.
But double-check for sure. Hope you can get a straight answer here.

I will be attending the 2/8/20 event in Hockley.

I would like to meet and greet any forum members who are going to that one.

I'm here and they do not allow open carry !!! They said they prefer that no one carries. Wow. Hypocrites I think. Unorganized program so far. No one knows where to go or where in this place it's going to start. Lot's of cop's and security and so far the ones I interacted with were rude. They were all talking about how they handled a bad guy. Totally unfriendly. I'll see how the rest of this seminar goes and will tell about it after It's over. :rules: :nono:

This seminar was worth attending just to hear Jack Wilson talk. But after he finished, it was 50% sales pitches and commercials, 25% church service, and 25% info for someone brand new to being a sheepdog or starting a ministry. I doubt that there were 2 people in the room who didn’t already know “when seconds count, the police are just minutes away”.

My wife and I are planning attending one of these. We will be driving a little bit, but I am not going to hear an infomercial. I hope others will post their opinion before my class comes up.

I was blessed with the opportunity to shake Jack Wilson's hand before he entered the sanctuary to speak. He is a humble man.
Didn't care much for the sales pitches either, but Meeks did a nice job. I've been to a few of these, but the group I was with had never been to one, I believe some of it was eye opening for them.
Oh yeah, didn't see any signs so I didn't ask before I entered.
What would y'all guess, 60% 70% or 80% were carrying? Lol

Listening to Jack Wilson made the trip for me. The folks from "[Pre-paid legal service]" were professional and courteous. The rest of the program was too dramatic. Carrying is a serious responsibility and I feel uncertain about folks that glorify shooting "bad" guys. My two cents.

I attended a very similar as this sometime back and honestly all in our group thought we had been to a sales event, for the total cost we all had we said pass on another like this but would I have gone probably so.

Met Jack Wilson also. Very humble indeed. Had a job to do, did it, it's over. Too much trying to push products they sell. Some good info after you filter out all their drama. I've heard comedians before. Glad I didn't have to pay for it. They never asked to see my entrance numbered ticket. They told me they wished no one carried, but they wouldn't know. I myself didn't due to they're were enough there with law enforcement that I didn't feel like I needed to be involved in a crossfire situation if something did go wrong. All in all, my opinion is my own feelings, but felt like I wasted the better part of my day. Don't get me wrong that what was not good for me could be of benefit to others. :tiphat:

I arrived at the church about 240pm. Saw no 30.06 signs. I did like the fact they had security in the parking lot, but I don't know if they stayed out there the entire time. I got into the auditorium about 245pm. If I knew Jack Wilson was speaking I would have made sure I was there earlier. Fortunately, I got to hear some of his talk.

Didn't care for the sales pitch but I understand it. I just wish they would have kept it to the "10 minutes" they promised and not the hour they actually talked.

I didn't really learn a whole lot, but I have been a lurker on this board for the past 5 years, so most of what was said, I've heard here before. If you're new to church security or carrying in general, it might have been a decent seminar. I'm just glad it was free.

The main speaker introduced the Garland policeman who took out the 2 terrorists a couple of years ago. Thought he was going to talk, but unfortunately, he never got a chance. I would have liked him to at least say a little about that incident.

I attended the Hurst session. Carried concealed, no problems.
Did hear Jack Wilson speak, that was good. Very good! Jack was a surprise speaker, trip was worth that.
The young lady lawyer from US/TX Shield spoke for some time, she was good.
I just wanted a refresher on use of force. Kinda got it.
Then we left, did not stay for the entire event.
I have been to several of these, all pretty much the same.
Lots of sales pitches, but I knew that going in.
If you have never been, then go.
If you have been previously, then maybe not.
I would not drive too far to attend, but it was close, so I attended.
Just my 2 cents.
