Another month has gone screaming past and the state of the Network and our Affiliates is as strong as ever!

Rick Cross of Be Safe Firearms Instruction in Las Vegas, NV wrote and told me he had another CCW class this past month with four people in it and along with handouts from Taser International, the booklet and pamphlet together from the Armed Citizens' Legal Defense Network goes right on top and is mentioned in the intro portion of the class. Thank you, Rick, we’re glad to hear it. Then Rick had more news, writing, “I have attached a few pictures of my 1999 Ford F-150 and you can see my advertising is large and in charge. The last photo is my new custom license do you like it?”photo 1 (2)

Rick, we think it’s super and since your contact info is front and center on your truck, folks will know where to find you for training!Ricks Plate

Every once in a while, I get an e-mail or call from a member who asks for some booklets or brochures in a small quantity, just for friends or to share as the opportunity arises.

I got one of those requests from Bruce in Washington a few days ago and even though he initially just wanted ten, we stocked him up with a box of 50. There is no amount too small, if you need these materials, I’ll make sure you end up with plenty. Call or e-mail any time!

Just about as often, I get article or video links passed from folks like Gale Burton and Kevin Faherty. They are all great stories and much of the information is also posted to our Facebook page (, which I think is a better venue. Since this column only runs once a month, Facebook can share your legal defense topics while they’re current.

Alecs Dean sent in his schedule for National Rifle Association Instructor Courses (including muzzle loading for students and instructors, reloading for students and instructors, all Instructor ratings, RSO and CRSO instruction, and much more). If you are in the Orlando, Tampa or Atlanta area, heads up. Alecs’ contact info is International Firearm Safety, Inc., 3835 Arlington Street, Fort Myers, Florida 33901-8413 or call him at 239-357-3437.

Finally a brief apology to anyone who has sent me an e-mail this past week and not gotten a fast reply. I am a pretty tech-savvy sort of guy. I mean, I know the difference between HTML and OMG. You know, a genius. Anyway, at some point the e-mail server for the Network and the hamsters that run my personal office system got into a shoving match and some e-mails got lost or re-routed or burnt in offering to the gods of the Internet. Anyway, I burned some hours of my own talking to our nice tech guru John, and between us (and a very big mallet) I think we have it all straightened out. In any case, we both learned a bunch of new Anglo-Saxon adjectives! On the serious side, we are back on track and life is good.

As always, if you have news to share, just call or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. If I receive your information, celebration or brag by the 20th of the month, you have a great chance of getting in the upcoming column.

Stay safe out there!
