    Jim, good to know. Thanks for the update.
  5. Obtaining TN HCP w/ TX LTC

    So Jim what was the answer? I would highly suggest that anyone new to the state either spend some time reading the laws of the state or take the HCP course. Especially true because of some of the differences in TN vs. TX law.

  9. Depression/Mental Illness

    I have been of the opinion that technology / society has evolved much faster and more complex than the human capacity to adapt to those changes for a lot of people. Most of the problems are self inflicted by social pressures by media. The portrayal of lifestyle by the rich and famous as normal may invoke the mental stresses of those not well grounded. Feelings of failure, insufficieny, etc exceed coping skills as we now feel our wants become sometimes unreachable needs. It is an increasingly complex world that has no easy answer for the masses.
  10. School Shootings

    I am in agreement with Hozzie on this. First military operations/training is different than goals. Also I don't get this idea that suddenly military personel are experts in small arms. Limited exposure for most. Some may have extensive exposure, but even out of those you are going to have limited availabilty. The occurrance of a shooter is rare...equivilant to a possible lightening strike. Volunteer teacher/employee carry is the answer IMO. Also it is akin to routine personnel carry in public; for emergency use only and rare that it is needed. Proper firearm usage and training would be required. However the teachers are not a response force, they are simply a reactionary self-defense purpose when one exhausts the Run.....Hide.....and then to the last resort FIGHT that is being taught.
  11. AND why not all public schools

    I would never recommend a HCP only qualification....but it has to be a start. The SRO firearms training would be the minimal requirement. Re-test every year. Let's keep in mind a) most shootings are over in 5 minutes b)average response time is 14 minutes c) national on target hit % by police hovers around 20%.
  12. Fishing line?

    No spyder wire is more akin to braid. Lasts much longer. Mono deteriorates much quicker, with spyder lasting much longer without losing strength. Also doesn’t twist as badly, less memory. Therefore no need to buy in bulk.
  13. Minimum Age to purchase a handgun in TN

    And then let's not forget the stipulation that 18 yo military personnel qualify to obtain a HCP in TN. 922g simply prohibits minors from possessing a handgun. You can't tell me that an 18 yo cannot possess a handgun legally in their own home, and by extension their auto.
  14. AND why not all public schools

    GO.. the option for teacher carry is not in the vein of SWAT tactics. It is simply the last resort. Training is simply safe handling and competence in shooting. I have to believe many involved in the FL shooting, especially the coach who lost his life would have liked that option.
  15. AND why not all public schools

    No ONe....you make a good point that not all schools may have a RSO for various reasons, cost being one of them. That cost is one reason teacher/employee carry could be acceptable....no additional manpower costs. Also, imagine 20 armed guards per school which could be had with employees vs. 3 or so for paid security. In general, I would prefer the teachers if properly trained.
