FTX ECHO WILL BE HELD AT OUR NEW LOCATION THIS MONTH
THE NEXT BIG THING
Great things are on the horizon in Texas if the support holds. We support Texas becoming a Constitutional Carry State as well as a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary. I think it's a great step forward towards preserving our constitutional rights.
However we have seen backlash from some regarding citizens being able to freely carry handguns without training or a license. This is where we as Texas citizens & gun rights advocates want to do our part to ensure interested members of our local communities have the proper training and education to handle, carry, and use their firearms.
That is why I want to announce that the WTX Desert Unit, if the new legislation passes & is signed into law, will fully commit to holding multiple training classes for anyone close enough to attend. And we want to offer these classes completely FREE OF CHARGE. We have equipped training facilities & shooting ranges and we invite anyone who wishes to gain a better understanding & proficiency with their handguns to come on out.
Consider this an LTC class but without any out-of-pocket cost at all. We will provide essential education on firearm safety standards, proper gun handling techniques, live fire instruction, as well as a basic overview of situations, scenarios, and Texas gun laws. We have several certified firearm instructors, ex-military, and law enforcement members and have vast experience teaching firearm principles and techniques. Whether you are a beginner or more advanced, young or old, male or female, and even if you have never fired a gun before, we invite you to come out and participate.
We are doing this in an effort to increase firearm safety awareness and quell the notion that Constitutional Carry is a mistake. It is most definitely NOT, and we want to do our part to support it and this is how we feel we can do exactly that.
We will post the dates and locations for these training classes as soon as the legislation passes and we establish the volume of participation we can expect. All of this information will be able to be found here on our website in the near future.
These classes will be held in the Odessa Midland area & all literature, training equipment, & refreshments will be provided on-site, you will only need to bring your own handgun, spare magazine, ear & eye protection, and sufficient ammunition for the instruction.
It should be noted that if you are not legally able to possess or own a firearm such as having been convicted of a felony, domestic or family violence, mental defect, class A misdemeanor conviction within last 5 years, or citizenship renouncement, you are not invited to attend.
If any of these situations apply to you, while we do support your right to pursue eventually gaining your firearm rights back, we also unquestionably follow current Texas law, and will not deviate from that with no exceptions.
We hope to have a large attendance and look forward to meeting everyone that attends!
