"Be Trained - Be Confident"
INTEGRITY FTC believes that responsible firearm ownership and use means a lifetime commitment to continual education, training, and practice. Education means knowing what tools are available to you to become better at whatever discipline you pursue; whether target shooting, recreation, hunting, competition, law enforcement or military to name a few. Training includes both formal and informal. Informal training comes from media such as books and video. Formal training is conducted in a classroom and range setting. Practice means application of the education and training you receive. This includes dry fire practice, drills, technique enhancement, and actual shooting time. Practice also means abiding by the knowledge of current guns laws for your state and area, and knowing when they change.
The following references are for your benefit. We only give my recommendations to the books that we have personally read and the sources we have used. In some situations we may not agree with everything written in a book, such as disagreement with a shooting grip. We have included some descriptions which sort through some of these preferences. This list is not inclusive and will be updated periodically. Please send us an email if you have others that you recommend and we will be glad to review them.

These are the two best sources for this information in Texas. Have you just moved to a new state or planning to travel out of state? I highly recommend checking with the Department of Public Safety of each state that you will be visiting or moving to. Do not trust blogs, gun groups or 3rd parties for legal information! Also it is not a bad idea to check with local law enforcement to make sure you understand how the law will be interpreted in your area.
