  • Firearms Qualification for concealed carry natiionwide.

    The WV Natural Resources Police Lt. came to the range today to conduct my firearms qualification. President HW Bush signed a bill that allows active duty or retired police officers to carry a concealed weapon nationwide. I have to qualify twice a year to meet the requirements of the bill. Even after being retired 13 years and 72 years old the Lt. was amazed how I shot. He used to see me shoot when I was the Dept's Firearms Officer. His comment was ": You haven't lost a thing over the last 13 years. I was shooting my S&W 4566TSW .45 that the Dept gave me when I retired. It is a little more trying now with tri-focals than it used to be however 60 out of 60 isn't to bad on a timed combat course.

    Congratulations Sarge !! I could be 60 out of 60 also, but then I presume you were talking about 60 hits, not what I would do. Good shooting !!

      It seems like I can't win. About a year ago I fell with all my weight on my left artificial knee on my asphault driveway. Trying to step across my 4-wheeler trailer tongue and everything came across except my toe. It has been giving me fits ever since then. Today I was on my cane and for no apparent reason I went to the ground. My Son got my crutches out of my truck and I couldn't even walk with crutches for the intense pain like no other I have ever had. He along with my daughter-in-law and my wife got me into my pickup and my wife took me to the emergency room. Xrays showed my knee looked normal. The Dr.seems to think it is ligament damage. He put a shot of Lydicane into my knee and after about 5 hours he sent me home. My wife had to get the neighbor and my Son-in Law to get me into the house. I am in a wheelchair to move around but the pain has subsided quite a bit. I have an appointment with the bone Surgeon at West Virginia University Hospital in a day or two. The Dr. seems to think that my knee is going to have to be opened up to see what the problem is.

        Sarge, that certainly is not good news ! I wish there was more that I could do other than to wish you the best and a full recovery.

          I got my carry renewal the other day and the woman said they are thinking of doing away with the permits. I almost fell off the chair. How can they even consider that ? I am greatly opposed.

            West Virginia gives a person the option of no permit as long as they stay in state. If you are going out of state you still have to get a concealed permit.

              I think everyone should go through a background check, unless you want convicted felons carrying.

                Sarge - I thought the days of exploratory surgery were over.
                CT Scan or MRI should give an excellent picture of everything inside.

                  They can't do MRI because of my metal artificial knee. After bone scan and xrays the Dr.s are pretty sure my artificial knee is not loose . Pictures show it perfectly aligned. I haven't been to the bone Dr. yet in University Hospital but after spending about 6 hours in the ER last Sat in intense pain The Dr. seems to think that I have ligament damage. I hope to find out on June 3rd.

                    Sarge - Well, here's wishing you the best of luck with that.
                    I feel your pain.

                      Jimbo, I agree fully ! I am very pro 2A, but I am not pro stupid. There has to be some way of determining who is not qualified to be carrying and that has to be done. Now, that is not saying that I agree with gun registration by any means, but not just anyone should be allowed to carry ! In Michigan we can open cary without permit and I am not too comfortable with this, there being no way of knowing who should be and should not be doing so ! Yes, it is convenient in one way, but also a little scary too !

                        Newsflash.............the bad guys don't like attention and overwhelmingly carry concealed.

                        Open carry does scare old women. And they make up stuff and call the cops or manager of wherever you are, so you get to play "answer stupid questions". Not worth it. Carry concealed.

                        Of course it's racist to wonder about the kid in a hoodie with his pants around his ankles.
                        Just arrested a couple of them recently in my town. Felons w handguns.

                        There ought to be a law.

                        Yeah, they weren't open carrying either.

                          I do see open carry off and on. Usually some redneck with a Taurus.
                          Proud as punch. Bad ink. Usually a smoker too.

                          Don't get the fashion statement of folks carrying into gun shops. Our LGS has a range, so some of that is related. But much of it not.

                          It's as if a polymer framed rig in a cheap Nylon holster is a fashion trend. Friggin gun cases are full of them for sale.........but that one on the hip is special.

                          LMFAO

                            They do anyway. Cops catch em all the time.

                              My idea is to check for people who have mental illness. The national pharmacy data base could meld with background data base and flag any applicant who is prescribed a psychotropic pill. A quick call to the prescribing M.D. could get a yea or nay on the approval of the purchase.

                                Iran has 3 oil tankers (not ours) should we do anything ? What ? Be realistic, attacking the tankers would probably result in them being burned.

                                It's simply tit for tat. Brits took one of their tankers, they take two of the brits. More important is why is there even an embargo. We broke the deal,...

                                If international law recognizes 50 miles off shore as a country border and the strait is 22 miles wide does that mean the strait is entirely in iran territory....
