    Yesterday, I took my CHL course. I went to the range for my handgun proficiency test and there was a reporter from AP doing a story on the new castle doctrine passed recently in Texas.

    After I finished my proficiency test, he got a few shots of me shooting and then interviewed me.

    The video is on AP.org right now if you guys want to see it... I sound kinda like a moron cuz I couldn't think of something profound to say off the top of my head, but oh well..:rofl:

    www.ap.org
    Click on videos near the bottom right
    A video will pop up and search for "guns" and it should be the first video called "Texas Signs New Self-defense by Gun Law"
    Play that video...


    He mispelled my name... :mad: It's Jon, not John....

    Edit: Here's a direct link to the video:

    He told me what he was reporting on and then he turned the camera on, so I didn't have much time to prepare. I really didn't want to sound like an... uneducated gun freak or something. :-/

    Purely coincidental, too. My instructor and I showed up at the range and the range guys told us there was a reporter here doing a story. When he found out I was doing my CHL test, he asked if I minded answering some questions.

    Na, you did good, I probably would have stared at the camera while it was on trying to think of something to say.

    Good job man. At least they didn't interview some jackass that makes us all look bad. You did a great job!

    You should have acted really anxious and asked them to use a fake name, black out your face, and add in the really deep voice so no one is aware you're packing heat.

    Nice job... You sounded pretty put together considering they didn't give you any time to prepare.

    On a side note, if anyone in the DFW (or Texas) area is looking to get a Texas CHL, I highly recommend David Gilreath.
