If you saw my reply to the DFW guy, before I sent off the certificate of proficiency/affidavit, I made a copy of it and folded it up and put it in my wallet. I figure it could be kosher??? It does say CERTIFICATE OF FIREARMS PROFICIENCY at the top of the sheet. I figure it would only matter if I am in a location that is prohibited for LTC people and other citizens and I get into a situation where I had to fire my weapon. I figured the chances of that happening was very slim.Poorly phrased by me so allow me to explain what I meant more clearly: Texas makes it so there usually are two fees - one for the LTC (if they charge one and traveling to you to be qualified for free would cost more than the fee for many) and one for the qualification card which for some reason is issued by the state of Texas (which technically you do not need if you have other proof you qualified, such as the sheet signed by the instructor).. To the best of my knowledge, after speaking to someone at TCOLE and to a few LTC instructors, Texas does not allow an LTC Instructor to issue qualification cards and thus TX in essence is making most folks (who can not glet qualified for free) pay two fees. As for me, I have not been able to find an LTC who does it for free in the Texarkana area.
Very nice of you to offer free quals.
