I just got home from my concealed carry class and I am very excited to say I passed! I got 100% on the written part (thanks in great part to the info on this site), and I am happy with my range portion considering I have only fired a gun three times counting today. At 40 years old, I had never fired a gun until about a month ago, at which point I discovered I LOVE to shoot.
The class was great, held here in Raleigh at Eagle1 range. The instructor was Keith King and the class was lively, with good humor and some class participation to keep it interesting. It was a long day, as we had more students then he was expecting due to some registration mix ups, but he was thorough and still got us done with the range portion quickly.
I am hot on the trail of finding my first gun to buy, but I have a lot more shooting to do before I figure out what fits me best. I just had to share with my buds at DC!
Exactly! I am merely the grasshopper! But I am a happy grasshopper.
Congrats!! Shooting is such fun and a great hobby, still pretty new to it myself, never a bad time to get into it. Like stated above, lots to learn, but its a fun process as well.
Stay safe and practice often.
The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

Congrats on the 100%. It's nice to see people that are new to shooting enjoy it. Good luck on the hunt for your new purchase and stay safe! Also welcome to the forum from Northern California.

Congrats! And if you think picking out a handgun is a hot trail to follow, wait till you go down the holster trail!
Never challenge an old man, because if you lose, you’ve lost to an old man, and if you win, so what?
The market for CC pistols is booming right now. Take your time and find the one thats right for you.
congrats and have fun with your new addiction.

Congrats Mojo. I received my CCW permit in 38 days this summer from Wake County from the day I went down and filed. Hopefully it's as quick for you.
By the way, new range planning to be built at Brier Creek in Raleigh... will be 1,000,000 times better than Eagle1.

Here at the rock, we have two basic rules...
Glock 27 for every day carry (LCP for deep conceal when necessary)... Glock 23 for the home.

congratulations mojo.... shoot a lot stay safe. The only advice i will offer is when between a rock and a hard place look to the front sight for a way out.
