Ten X to Host CCW Instructor’s Course

Ten X will host an NRA FFL Instructor’s training course on August 23, 24, and 25, 2019. The class runs from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm on all three days. On Friday, August 23, and for the classroom portion of the course on Saturday August 24, the course will be held at the indoor range at 853 Ransom Road, while the firing instruction on Saturday and Sunday will be at the outdoor range on Greenbush Road.

The NRA CCW Instructor Certification Course equips firearms trainers with the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to teach others how to safely and responsibly carry a concealed handgun for personal protection. NRA CCW Course builds on the fundamentals taught in the NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting Course and puts those skills into a defensive context. There are two prerequisites for the CCW instructor class: (1) you must be an NRA-certified pistol instructor, and (2) you must complete the NRA CCW Basic Course. The CCW Basic Course is being held this same weekend […]

What’s On the Horizon for 2019

Albany Legislation: This is a general overview of what we expect in terms of gun legislation coming out of Albany when the legislature convenes in January. Of course, the legislative season is fluid and this list isn’t necessarily complete and can change as circumstances evolve. Given the 2 to 1 majority Democrats have in both houses, turning back anti-gun legislation this year will be formidable, if not impossible to say the least.

THE RIGHT SIDE BY BUDD SCHROEDER JANUARY 24, 2018

 

IF YOU HAVE A PISTOL PERMIT, YOU MUST RE-CERTIFY NOW

 

 

You must obey the laws. This is a simple statement and it is true even when the law is flawed or unjust. People had to obey the law regarding Prohibition and many did not do that. However, it was the law during the Roaring Twenties and it caused great confusion, corruption and destruction.

If you made alcohol, transported, sold or possessed it, you committed a federal crime. It was a constitutional amendment and a serious crime. The big problem is that a high portion of our population didn’t like the law, didn’t obey it and it made organized crime more profitable. It was an abject failure and was finally repealed.

It made criminals out of “formerly” honest citizens. It also provided the funding for corrupting politicians and law enforcement as well as making the bootleggers and criminals rich. One would think that politicians would have learned […]
