    Well...my opinion is you were largely right.

    LEOSA offers limited immunity from some state/local laws regarding carriage of firearms. Notice that LEOSA does not provide immunity from federal law/regulation. In short, one can carry most anything he want on his creds and, most likely, avoid being charged state-wise for such carriage.

    LEOSA offers no one immunity from CBP(or any agency) policies/discipline with regards to firearms carriage. In short, the agency might gut someone like a fish for violating internal policies while carrying under LEOSA.
    The LEOSA actually mentions "meeting agency regulations" several times in regard to both active and retired LEO carry. The law was never ment to "trump" agency regulations, only restrictive state laws.
    Life is what happens while you are waiting for something better to come along.

              We'll see... I'm not too sure how MHC/TSU works, but the calls seem to go out in groups so hopefully this was the first call of many.

              • Hey fellas, i just got my T.O. April 1st. my geo is SWB El Paso. I hadn't heard much for the rest of the month of april but yesterday i got an email to start my Background investigation with e-QIP and just today i got a call to schedule my fitness test. My fitness test is friday, i tried to set it up for a couple of weeks from now because i have finals all this week and next for school but they said it HAD to be done by friday. i wish i had a couple of more weeks to work out too even though i've been hitting the gym 5 days a week since i got my NOR (94) in the middle of January. Im pretty confident i can handle the 20 push-ups and 25 sit-ups but i thought they give you a 2 week notice for all the appointments?? i feel like things are starting to move very quickly now. I spoke to MHC on thurday about my work history and the gentlemen said i had a "great attitude". could this be why everything is moving faster? i guess i just wanted to give you guys an update on my status. thanks for your time guys. Wish me luck!

                • hey all, how long does it take to get the TO? I took the test December 14th, got my results emailed to me about 2 weeks later, I got a 92%....haven't heard back since then.

                    Progress through the steps is made when your number comes up, whoever you speak to at MHC has absolutely nothing to do with it...
                    Regarding the time from contact to having something done... it will always be a "hurry up and wait" approach. When they call you for the drug test, you will have 24-48 hrs to show up and pee in the cup. This is a long drawn out process, all these initial steps will come by in a flurry, and then you'll just have to sit and wait like the rest of us.
                    Best of Luck!

                      It will depend on what GEO location you picked and how many people scored higher than you, including those with Vet Pref... Some have waited for over a year to get one!

                            thats a very good score but it varies my roommate here in the academy also took the test in december for calexico and scored in the high 80s and has not received anything when i got my TO it said be advise not everyone that passes the test receives a TO so i dont know the government doesent make sense they have an open period so people can test but yet they have a **** lot of people waiting to get hired some from 2007 2008 2009 weird.

                                Read the instructions from the email and while going through eQIP, I can't remember if I had to send those in last November, but be ready for a 2nd BI since yours is 2 years old.
