  1. I always send a pdf copy of the certificate to each student. I am pretty adamant that students keep records of all training. Some may be able to print your certificate before you leave.
  2. School property is automatically illegal to carry, but MAY permit carry. If permitted, no signs have to be posted and all personnel, students and parents have to be informed of the policy.
  3. The 2.0 trigger is an improvement over the 1.0 without doubt. I promised I would shoot my 2.0 for a good while before monkeying with parts.......promise broken. I put in the flat-faced, forward set trigger kit in this past week-end. Just wow! I have had at least a half dozen 'gun guys' try this trigger out, all with the same impression. What an improvement. Pull wt can be changed by reference to the Apex flow chart that accompanies the kit. Mine by trigger gauge runs 3.3#. One can bump it up to over 6. Very sharp trigger break, no creep, no stack. Great reset. Can highly recommend it, and yes there is a difference that is worth the money.
  4. Daniel Fisher Forbes Staff I cover finance, the law, and how the two interact. A Connecticut judge has thrown out a closely watched lawsuit against Remington Outdoor over the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre, saying the plaintiffs failed to maneuver around a federal law prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers over crimes committed with their products. In a 54-page ruling, Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis ticked through the various ways plaintiff lawyers tried to make a case against Remington, which made the Bushmaster rifle Adam Lanza used to kill 26 children and teachers on Dec. 14, 2012. All failed to fit the exceptions Congress wrote into the law, including one for "negligent entrustment," or knowingly transferring a weapon to someone who will use it to commit a crime.
  5. Lots of good guns out there; Taurus just ain’t one of them.
  6. So sorry and healing/comforting prayer for all.
  7. LNL- yes, but is a change in name only. Some are being duped into thinking ‘enhanced ‘ is something better. This whole thing is a charade to pacify the constitutional carry promise move....unsuccessfully I might add.
  8. One can drive through Illinois with your handgun on a TN permit. Their law is very similar to our permitless carry. Review their laws, especially the statement from their republican caucus.
  9. Locked inside the vehicle is fine, as long as it is out of sight. The method of security is simply a personal choice. Academy has several such cases which offer very good security with thicker cables. Certainly better than a glove box. If you are concerned about crossing state lines where your gun is not welcomed, a lockable case inside the truck is a must. Furthermore, no ammo in the gun or passenger compartment.
  10. Still a teaching facility just like UT hospital. Even employees who reported to campus police cannot carry in medical facilities.
  11. That is the whole point! There is NO change with the current permit except in name only. That is being done for a new, watered down permit. IMO in the long run it will hurt all current holders .
  12. Private schools can set up their own policy, K-12, as well as higher education. There may still be posting of their choosing. In general, unless their policy permits, one cannot carry on that property. Public higher schools, UT, Pellissippi, etc., only employees that meet specific criteria my carry concealed. General public may possess in auto, out of sight. In general. Read specific law.
  13. This is a smoke and mirrors bill. Call your representatives and ask for opposition.
