The first CHL class I taught was in Midland, Texas. I remember
struggling through the hour+ that I had to spend teaching
Non-Violent Dispute Resolution; what a waste of time.
I felt like I was wasting time that could be better spent teaching my
students how to hit the bad guy they were shooting at.
reluctantly admit that the revelation came slowly), I realized what most
of my students probably already knew, "Whether you are carrying a gun or
not, the best way to win a fight is to avoid a fight."
But, I still thought the Non-Violent Dispute Resolution section of the
course was a waste of time. So, I decided to re-write it. This
month, the Texas DPS saw fit to approve my new NVDR version for inclusion
in my classes.
If you would be interested, my new version can be found at:
