AT 6-FOOT-2, 140 POUNDS, I MAY BE TOO SCRAWNY TO BE A POLICE OFFICER. IT IS A GOOD THING, TOO, BECAUSE I MADE A MESS OF THE HARFORD COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE’S VIRTUAL TRAINING LAST MONTH AND — IF I DID NOT ALREADY — SERIOUSLY DOUBT MY QUALIFICATION TO ENFORCE LAWS, DIGITAL OR REAL. THIS IS AN ACCOUNT OF THE EXPERIENCE, IN WHICH I WAS LIKELY KILLED MORE THAN ONCE.

CO – TRAINING – Colorado Aims to Improve Public Access to Shooting Ranges

Like gun stores, shooting ranges in Colorado have seen an uptick in interest during the pandemic. And grants from Colorado Parks and Wildlife are helping some of these private facilities reload. Every year, the state allocates between $400,000 and $750,000 to shooting ranges across Colorado through the Shooting Range Development grant program.

NAT’L – TRAINING – Is Your Security Guard Good Enough? Why Many Protection Agents Need More Training

WHAT MAKES A QUALITY SECURITY GUARD? WHAT SKILLS AND TRAITS EMBODY SOMEONE THAT YOU WOULD WANT TO ENTRUST WITH YOUR LIFE OR THE LIVES OF YOUR FAMILY? MOST FAIL TO REALIZE THAT SO MUCH MORE GOES INTO THE MAKING OF A TRUE PROFESSIONAL PROTECTION AGENT THAN JUST AN INTIMIDATING LOOK AND A GUN. THERE IS CERTAINLY MORE TO IT THAN THE MINIMUM STANDARDS REQUIRED FOR LICENSURE. IN EVERY STATE, THE REQUIREMENTS TO BE LICENSED AS A BODYGUARD FALL SHORT. IN TEXAS, FOR EXAMPLE, YOU ONLY NEED TO COMPLETE A 48-HOUR CLASS TO BE AN ARMED SECURITY GUARD. TO BECOME A LICENSED PERSONAL PROTECTION OFFICER (BODYGUARD) ONLY REQUIRES AN ADDITIONAL 16 HOURS OF TRAINING, ALL OF WHICH IS CONDUCTED IN A CLASSROOM.

AR – TRAINING – Mastering the Arkansas Enhanced CHCL Qualification

THERE ARE TWO LEVELS OF ARKANSAS CONCEALED HANDGUN CARRY LICENSES, AS THEY ARE CALLED IN ARKANSAS. THE BASIC LICENSE DOESN’T HAVE MUCH OF A PROFICIENCY REQUIREMENT. THE STUDENT JUST HAS TO SHOW THAT THEY ARE SAFE WITH A FIREARM, NOT REALLY ANY ACTUAL PROFICIENCY. FOR THE ENHANCED LICENSE, THERE IS AN ACTUAL QUALIFICATION STANDARD. IT IS STILL FAIRLY BASIC, AND GIVEN ANY DECENT SKILL LEVEL, IT SHOULD BE AN EASY STANDARD TO MEET. THIS HAPPENS TO BE EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE TEXAS LICENSE TO CARRY QUALIFICATION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE SCORING.

BRIAN GUERRA, OWNER OF LONE STAR GUN IN HARLINGEN SAID THE SHORTAGE LEFT THOSE GOING OUT TO SHOOT, TO RELY ON WHAT THEY HAVE.
