I took my CHL course on a college campus.

These are apparently non-credit classes, but nonetheless the classes are held/offered by a local college. Classroom instruction on the college campus; firing range is off-campus.
Very interesting it makes me want to move to Louisiana.........uh wait, wait.... I'm already in Louisiana!
Press release I saw today on the "internet news":
NSU to offer Conceal Carry class
Participants must be 21 or older
NATCHITOCHES – Northwestern State University’s Office of Electronic and Continuing Education will offer a Louisiana Concealed Carry Class on Saturday, March 15. The class is for those age 21 or older who want to obtain a Louisiana concealed handgun permit.
The course will be from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. in South Hall on the Northwestern State campus and at the Natchitoches Shooting Range. The cost is $110 plus a shooting range fee.
Montgomery Police Chief Kevin Billiot will teach the class which will cover pistol shooting fundamentals, safe handling, use of force laws and related topics.
Great news! Slowly but surely, the tide will turn.

but ... but ... what about the children?
Gun Free Zones are totally effective, and 100% safe ... (wait for it) ... (wait for it) ... until a bad guy with a gun shows up! Then suddenly, you have an uncontested Kill Zone of defensless sheep, patiently awaiting their turn for the slaughter.
Yep! There are a few community colleges in Tennessee that offer the courses. Better still......in Knox County, Tennessee the Sheriff's Office offers one to citizens and utilizes the SO's facility. That has to make a bunch of folks on the other side of this arguement a little red-faced.

The carry class has been offered here on a college campus for years now.
I wish they just get their own range now. THAT would be a step in the right direction for sure.

My alma mater has a shooting range on campus, and offers different shooting disciplines for PE credit. I was able to take rifle, pistol, and trap courses for my undergraduate PE credits.
IIRC, the pistol class met requirements for the CHL training, although I had already had my CHL by then, so I didn't really take note if it did or not.

If so, that's a good thing. Somewhat surprising, given the anti-gunner changes in the past 40yrs, but a good thing.
Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!
Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.
Anything going in the right direction is better than going in the wrong direction like we did for quite a while not so long ago. We are making headway for a change as whole in this nation on gun rights. Not fast enough for sure. And reclaiming ever so slowly rights that we should never have lost in the first place.
Ill never live to see it I dont think but I look forward to the day ALL gun regulation is seen for what it was and is. Useless infringement proven over an over to not only fail but make things worse for law abiding citizens.
Unless we get lazy, or dont use this momentum to push just as hard or harder the antis do from just as an unmovable stance as they assume, we can reach that day in one way or another.
You dont have to believe a train is coming. Itll run over you anyway.
IDK if there is much admission process, tests, or certificate. Pretty much show up, sign your name, pay a bit of money.
I'm pretty sure the classes aren't listed in "the" College Catalogue; in fact I think I've seen where Continuing Education puts out their own catalogue each year
The firearms portion of my Law Enforcement Skills class qualified as a MN CCW class, a fact which was stated by the instructors at the time we started. If you wanted to do the permit with that class, you just needed to do an online test at the end and pay $30. This was at a Minnesota state community/technical college, and the class is taught for credit.
I'm very glad to see it! When I saw "NSU" I first thought "Nichols State University" in Thibodaux. Maybe they'll be next! Either way glad we're getting CCW classes in the schools here.

Now we're talking. It's about time classes with practical application were once again offered in higher education.
