There is a NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home Class

It will take place at Pearland Sportsmans Club in the Pearland/Alvin area.

Fee = $85

NRA Personal Protection in the Home is a prerequisite, unless it is waived. If you would like to discuss a waiver, please send me an email with your telephone number.

Please email me if you want to reserve a slot.

Thanks,
Chas.
This is a good start. You can possibly further your training with either John Farnam from DTI or Gabe Suarez from Suarez Internation.

http://www.defense-training.com/
http://suarezinternational.com/

And no amount of training will prepare you the after affects of a deadly encounter. They can tell you what it's like, but that's about it.

Good luck.

so a little more than 20% (5 out of 24) of CHL holders have had to draw their gun, but none of the situations are understood in which the gun was drawn.
i think if they shared their stories it would say a lot for the advantages of owning a CHL, or maybe the disadvantages.
any of the 5 care to share?

One way to think about this Alice.....

Having your CHL does not require you to carry a gun but getting one helps to maintain the rights to carry a concealed gun. Also, you do not need to have your CHL to carry in your car anymore as traveling has been defined in a new bill that was passed in 2005.

I don't have a CHL, but I sleep with a 40 Cal next to my bed and if I'm chilling in the living room for the evening it's usually on the coffe table. If mine is not there, my roommates is. Don't really have a want to carry as there is too much hassle with it. I enjoy drinking (a lot) and you can't carry into a bar, no need to carry at work (I think) and I know where I'm gonna go in the end so it don't really matter so much to me. Ever been stopped for doing 120 in a 65 and then having to tell the cop you are packin heat at the same time. It doesn't make for a "let me off occifer" attitude. I wasn't even the one carrying, but the popo and his back up surely didn't keep there eyes off of us the whole time. Luckily they let us off with warnings, but it wasn't exactly a funny situation.

That's pretty funny, because I do the exact same thing.

You probably weren't wearing rings on 7 out of 10 fingers, nor do you have piercings through you lip and multiple earrings in both ears, and tatoos all over (not that he could see 'em b/c we were all geared up). I won't give away the members name here, but he can be a little intimidating if you don't know him. He did give his chl license to the guy and it was at that point he immediately disarmed and gave him a nice pat down. we got lucky that day.

oh, and they didn't clock us at 120, but I'm sure he heard us flying through that last corner on 1488. we rolled up on him doing a good 80-85 mph before grabbing some brake.

And to add to the latter, just because they haven't yet come across a situation where they've been forced to draw their weapon does not mean that they never will. Then again, one would hope to never have to draw his weapon because where I come from, to pull it is to use it.
