taking my ccdw class this saturday 28
I cant wait until saturday am going to take my concealed carry class.
i have been signed up for this class since the beginning of september and it seems that since then time has been dragging !
i have been shooting my snubbie as much as i can, last week i put about 250 rounds through it, thursday i hope to get to put some more range time in . i have been practicing at seven yards since that is the distance that you qualify at in kentucky.
i have been practicing mostly da with my revolver does anybody know if you can shoot sa during qualification?
I will post saturday night if i get time and let you all know how it goes.

If nothing is said just shoot Sa, I used a ruger single six

I guess SA could work but - if you have practiced DA I would not change as in reality it will be all you'd ever (should) use in a situation.
I reckon you'll breeze it and it'll be good to get it done and dusted. Good luck

I took my course with a 38 Special snubby six shooter. Borrowed a 45 Auto on the range and Qualified with that as well. In NM you have to Qualifiy with the gun you are going to carry, be it revolver or auto...........But you can qualify with both, no extra cost.
The Guy I borrowed the .45 from used my snubby to qualify revolver. He did fine and to be honest that gun was junk.......I think is was called and Armscor or something like that......cheap, and shot like it. You can't miss at 7 yards, you'll do great.

In Missouri you need to qualify with auto and rev. I do not know about others class, but mine you did not even had to be a good shot, just be able to hit the target.

Here in Oklahoma if you qualify with a revolver you can only use a revolver as your CCW. If you qualify with a semi automatic you can carry any hand gun. Might want to check your state on that.

In my Colorado class, the instructor had a practical section on the range. I'd wanted to get out to practice, but due to torrential rain turning the range into a swamp, I didn't get to practice, and the first dry day was used for the range time for the class.
I didn't need to worry about practice. The requirements to pass weren't difficult at all. What surprised me was the number of people who obviously had new weapons that they were fairly unfamiliar with.
I'd bet that with the practice you've got in already, you'd do just fine...but don't let that stop you from getting more range time! As far as I'm concerned, any reason is good enough to get out shooting!

Me and my brother went to bowling green today and i stopped in at the gunshop were im going to take my class.
It was the first time i had been in there[a friend reccomended them to me] they had a nice selection of handguns and the staff was real friendly.
I looked at a springfield mil spec that was priced at 499.00 and a couple other 1911s they had, but i didnt buy anything yet
i think my next purchase will be some sorta 1911 probably a springfield.maybe santa claus will come early
here is a link to the gunshop if anybody wants to have a look.you can sign up for your ccdw class online at this link if you live in kentucky

Is It Required...
that you just complete this class or do you have to somehow qualify with your weapon?
Either way...good luck, and enjoy!

i have to pass the class and then place 11 out of 20 shots into a
b-21 target at seven yards.

congrats. it is a great class, but just the start of the training...warning, those classes and training become addicting.
have fun, and shoot safe.
