    Took the SC course today.

    Scored a 100% on my qualify.

    Was an interesting qualify. It was all "point and shoot". No aiming (although Some did I noticed but were well behind in finishing when they did).

    Which I have done some of... but never practiced it much. So it was fun to get out of the normal target stuff and practice more "self defense" tactics.

    But even so most did well at it. There were mostly scores in the 90's.

    10 shots each from 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 yards.

    Single shot from ready position, then back to ready, then double shot, ready, then double shot. Reload and Repeat.

    Until you worked out to the 20 yard then you went five straight shots. Down to ready and reload, then five more like that. Fast and smooth as you could. Attempting to get them off fast as you could but still hit the target square without aiming. Just point and shoot technique. Then again at 25 yards, 10 more shots like that and your done.

    I cannot say that ALL classes are like this. But this one was. Which I thought appropriate for the purpose.

    Sounds useful and appropriate.

    They do seem to vary a lot, both in type of shooting, amount of written, and of course cost and time.

    Has to be reasonable if you felt it was relevant. Now I take it - get that permit on the way!

    Well I had never thought about it being more applicable to do point and shoot for self defense classes. But I should have.

    Now... some there just did not seem to grasp the relivance and were indeed taking time and aiming. But I concentrated on speed and point with no aim. I was consistently through with my shot sequence a good couple three shots ahead of these "aimers".

    And I can tell ya my 100% was not a pretty 100%. It looked like I was shooting buck shot. But they all got there in the torso cept for one flyer to the jaw.

    I know I would rather be able to plant three in the bad guy somewhere.... before he gets off one shot. So it's all appropriate.

    This one was a full 8 hours. At least. We ate pizza while we listened. 50 questions test. In fact by the time we got our signed applications it was 8 and a half hours. Cost was $75 and if you chose to you could use his Revolvers and his ammo for that same cost! I thought it was a dam good deal.

    Congrats!!!!

    Ours was 8 hours of class, then shooting range, so we spent about 11 hours total.

    50 questions is standard for SC. $50.00 fee for the application through SLED.

    Cost for your class was great! Locally they get $125.00.

    Yes... I still have to pay the fee and send in my app.

    And this guy includes ammo and a gun so there is no excuse not to go out and take it. You really do not need anything on your own if your just starting out and want to get the experience first before you buy a firearm.

    Well the right to carry is accompanied by the right not to carry. It's a right. Not a requirement.

    And I will carry when I feel the need. Which may be always or seldom.

    And of course whether I am or not carrying should not be detectable nor will I tell you if I am or not ... ;)

    Congratulations,
    It sounds like a much better deal all-around then the Kansas set up. You are fortunate.
