This morning I took the LEOSA qualification course- Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act which is geared for law enforcement retirees. I procrastinated so long and I finally got it done. Now I can carry throughout the 50 states. I recommend all retired LEOs to take the LEOSA Qualification Course. It was not difficult at all but some states may differ. I shot a 20 round course, 5 supported, 5 unsupported, 5 weak hand unsupported and 5 at 20 yards supported. There were about 20 LEO retirees and a good time was had and they allowed 3 firearms to be listed on the LEOSA card.
Congrats sir. It sounds like you had a good time. Well done!
Congrats but once we get state reciprocity you won’t need it. I wish.
Thanks fellas I really appreciate that.
Now there is no place in USA you cannot enter
Now you can “escort” us through areas:wink:
I will escort you any time brother.
Nice! You Rock!
Is California one of the 50?
(it’s not a civics question)
Yessir even California
As long as you have all of these three
- Your retired LEO ID card
- Your LEOSA card verification of class
- Your CCW from the state you reside
I have all three. I took pics of them on my cell phone just in case.
The only thing that was mentioned and reiterated was that in NJ you could not have hollow points in your firearm which is absurd. But I will definitely look into it because I believe it has changed.
I have seen these rounds or something similar on some gun store shelves but never tried or looked into them. But I have heard of them.
Keep in mind the bullet weights sound light because they are lead free. An equal “size” copper bullet weighs less than a copper jacketed lead bullet.
I might be wrong but I think @BRUCE26 has spent some time evaluating them.
Congrats Johnny, I maintain my LEOSA (HR218 certification) and before I retired, instructed and administered the course to retirees from both state and local jurisdictions. I suggest all LEO retirees in good standing utilize the privilege that HR218 affords. It was earned and deserved. Some liberal areas will try to give us a hard time, I have heard stories from the CT and NY area where retirees have been given a hard time. So do your homework before traveling.
Thanks for the advice
