SPC to offer License to Carry class on Nov. 4
LEVELLAND – South Plains College will offer the Texas License to Carry a Handgun class on Saturday (Nov. 4) in the Law Enforcement Technology building on the Levelland campus. The class will begin at 8 a.m. with breaks every hour as well as a one-hour lunch break.
The classroom portion covers firearm safety, the use of force, non-violent conflict resolution, lawful concealed or open carry, storage with children in the home, and contacts with law enforcement personnel. It also covers holsters for concealed and open carry, and runs about six hours.
The range portion covers range safety rules and commands, and the shooting portion of the class at distances ranging from three to 15 yards, using the indoor pistol range in the Law Enforcement building. The number of students will determine how long the range portion requires. Inexperienced shooters might want to take a NRA Basic Pistol course before taking the LTC course.
Students will need to bring either a revolver or semiautomatic pistol, any caliber, and 50 rounds of ammunition to match. Eye and hearing protection are provided for students who do not have their own.
The instructor is Dr. Mike Felker, a retired SPC professor, NRA Advanced Pistol Instructor, D.P.S. certified LTC Instructor, and U.S. Concealed Carry Association Affiliate Instructor.
The cost of the course is $75 for students getting their first license, and $25 for students wanting a refresher course before renewing their license. This does not include the fee for the DPS and FBI fingerprint and background checks (reduced from $140 to $40 on Sept. 1). Renewals now are handled strictly online, the changes in Texas firearms law since 2013 make a refresher course a good investment.

South Plains College will host Arrive Alive Tour on Nov. 6
LEVELLAND – South Plains College will host the Arrive Alive Tour from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday (Nov. 6) in front of the Student Services Building.
Sponsored by UNITE, the Arrive Alive Tour program uses a high-tech simulator, impact video and a number of other resources to educate the public about the dangers of intoxicated driving. The simulator allows participants to experience the potential consequences of impaired driving in a controlled environment.
Nearly one-third of all traffic deaths involve alcohol-impaired drivers. Every two minutes, a person is injured in a drunk driving crash. On average, two in three people will be involved in a drunk driving crash in their lifetime. In 2014, the highest percentage of drunk drivers involved in fatal crashes were between the ages of 21 to 24. Every day, people drive drunk more than 300,000 times. However, only about 3,200 of those people are arrested.
UNITE brings health and wellness programs to high schools, colleges and communities across the nation. Its programs are designed to heighten awareness to the dangers and consequences of impaired driving. These events have a powerful impact on students to reinforce the subjects that schools and parents teach them daily.

LEVELLAND – South Plains College will offer the new NRA Defensive Pistol course Nov. 11 (Saturday) in the Law Enforcement Technology building on the Levelland campus. The class begins at 9 a.m. and includes breaks every hour as well as a one-hour break for lunch.
Space is limited, and students should pay in advance. The course runs eight to 10 hours, depending on the number and skill level of the students, and costs $90. Students will need a pistol, strong-side holster, two extra magazines or speed loaders, and 150 rounds of ammunition.
Participants will need a cover garment because all shots are fired after drawing the pistol from a concealed holster. Ear and eye protection is provided for students who do not have their own.
The goal of the course is to prepare students to carry and use a concealed pistol ethically, responsibly and with confidence. The course assumes that students have or plan to get a Concealed Handgun License. Students should have completed an NRA Basic Pistol Shooting, Basic Personal Protection in the Home or License To Carry course to be eligible. This is not a course to teach beginners how to shoot a pistol.
Lesson modules include firearm safety and responsible, ethical use of the firearm; basic principles of concealment; presenting the pistol and re-holstering; mental awareness; techniques for avoiding life-threatening confrontations; the psychological and physiological changes that may occur during an attack; flash sight picture; the use of cover and concealment; reloading under stress; immediate action drills; moving off the line of attack; as well as the pros and cons of pocket pistols for concealed carry.
The range portion will include at least 70 shots on targets at varying distances, and students must pass a final qualification course which includes reloads and immediate action drills. The course is completely objective based; students will pass or fail depending on how well they have learned what is being taught, not on the basis of a written test.
To register for the class, call Kasey Reyes at 806.716.2341 or email her at email@example.com.
