SPECIAL SECTION - ACTIVE SHOOTER INFORMATION

Question?
If there is an active shooter at my (work or school) what should I do?
Answer:
There are three basic rules that apply:

  1. Avoid the attacker (flee or hide)  Be aware of your surroundings.  Leave the area. (Run)
  2. Deny the attacker access to your area.  Lock doors.  Lights off. (Hide)
  3. Defend yourself (last option) use whatever is available (Fight)

Some people refer to this approach as RUN, HIDE, FIGHT as the three steps to take in the event of an active shooter situation.

Question?
I have never shot a shotgun (or handgun) and want to learn.  What should I do?
Answer:
Our Shotgun 101 or Pistol 101 classes are made for you.  Visit the CLASSES page to register at a date and time that works for you.  Pistol 101 is also a great class to take before going for your Texas License to Carry class.  In one and a half hours you will have gained a new skill.

Question?
What should I wear when I go to the gun range?

Answer:
Proper and safe dress is important on the range.  Basic rules are: a) no open toe shoes (hot brass flies around)  b) Avoid tank tops and low cut blouses (hot brass flies around)  c) a baseball cap is useful (hot brass flies around) d) Eye and ear protection is always required.  If you wear prescription eye glasses they are usually OK as long as they are not tiny and wouldnt allow hot brass to enter. (there is a pattern here)

Question?
I want to take a Texas CHL (Concealed Handgun License - Now called License to Carry or LTC) class to learn to shoot better. Will that teach me to shoot?

Answer:
The Texas LTC class is a very good class but it does not teach shooting.  It teaches Texas law as relates to concealed and now open carry.

You need a basic knowledge of your handgun to qualify on the range, shooting center of mass a total of 50 rounds at a B27 target from 9 feet, 21 feet, and 45 feet.

If you want to learn to shoot, we recommend "Pistol 101" as a great way to prepare for your LTC.

You wouldn't go for your drivers license without first learning how to drive.  Don't go for your LTC without first learning how to shoot safely.

Question?
I have small children at home and I am concerned about home safety.  What should I do?
Answer:
The NRA Home Firearm Safety Class will teach you how to safely store your firearms and ammunition and it will teach you what to tell your children should they ever see a gun at your house or a friends house.   The main things to tell your children if they see a firearm are:

  1. STOP
  2. Dont touch
  3. Leave the area
  4. Tell an adult

We distribute refrigerator magnets to help reinforce this for homes with young children

Question?
I would like my children learn how to shoot and be safe around guns.  How old do they have to be to take a class?
