    I'm taking mine next month. I know a few people have taken it and its hard to get a general consensus. A few of them really absorbed as much information as possible and appreciated the whole process. A few we're the "above it all" type and just saw as one giant waste of a Saturday. I think having a good instructor can have an effect as well. The people I know who really took a lot away from the class also mentioned how much they liked the instructor.

    Congrats on making the move toward legal, responsible carry. If your instructor doesn't seem to be getting into much of the legal aspects, then you would do well to ask questions, specifically about the use of deadly force. The laws are different for every state, so it's good to know. Make sure you take lots of notes. Good luck!

    Welcome, and what MrBuckwheat said.... There are no 'dumb questions' here, though you might get an occasional 'dumb answer'. Probably from me.

    I porport to be an expert at nothing, and i'm doing a really expert job at it, I might add.

    Here in WV the class consisted of mostly federal/state/local gun laws, when to shoot and when to swallow your pride. Our instructor also covered a variety of weapons and ammo and also concealed carry belts, holsters. Then we moved on range safety and all the basics.

    Idk if you guys have to have a live fire qualification but we had to hit center mass 15 times at 21 yards, all in all it was actually pretty fun, you can always learn something new, no matter how 'basic' the course may be


    Good luck!

    Definitely come to the course having already run through the basic firearms and use-of-force statutes for your state.

    Ask lots of questions about use-of-force, the minimum standards to which you're going to be held. Ensure you know the difference, legally speaking, between deliberately and visibly placing a hand on the grip, drawing and firing. Ensure you know the difference, legally speaking, between defending yourself, others, property, whether inside your home, in your car, on your property, elsewhere (anyplace you have every right to be). Understand your state's "Castle" type protections, if any. Understand all the places you are not lawfully allowed to carry. If your instructor's got the chops, inquire about the various issues in federal law that matter (ie, transportation, cross-state issues, and so on).

    Enjoy the training! Hopefully it'll be a good one.

    Thanks guys for all the comments. Yes I am hoping he focuses on the legal standpoint, the when and when not to shoot and the carry dont carry places. That seems to be what I am most interested in. From asking enough questions already we will shoot. Both a revolver and a semi (I think 50 rounds of each) then you chose one of them to qualify with (although you can carry what ever you want) I think that is another 40 rounds. Dont quote me on the rounds numbers they could be off. The instructor is supplying the guns and ammo both .22s. I planned on taking notes. Oh and Mother Nature is right on que we will shoot outside and we have the coldest day of the year so far suppose to struggle to get out of the 30s today :)

    All finished it was a good day. The first half of the course was pretty boring for me. Part way through I realized I knew about guns then I thought I did He focused alot on types of guns, ammo some scenerios alot of what I thought was general stuff. My brother told me he didnt know alot about all the stuff he addressed. Then we went and shot. He has a 7 yard range on his property. We shot 36 rounds of revolvers and 36 rounds of semis. Then 20 rounds of each to qualify. No problems there. The second half was the laws he covered parts of it in pretty much depth some of it he kind of skimmed over. He spent a fair amount of time on how to deal with a LEO in case of a traffic stop. Other then the addtional cost I would be interested in seeing what other instructors teach. He finished up with our next steps. His cost was a $100.00 which included guns ammo and eyes and ears. Next is a $100.00 for the local sheriff then around $10.00 for a state ID. The permit is good for 3 years then there is a $50.00 renewal for every 3 years. He said they are running about a 12-15 day turnaround. So hopefully by the middle of December I will be legal. I should have my Kahr CM9 all broke in by then.
