Here's my qualification test.

I "qualified" with a .22 revolver and automatic at my training class. In MO you shoot 20 rounds (must hit a B37 with a minimum of 15 rounds) at 7 yards with a pistol of your choice. My instructor included all ammo so I shot his auto during my qualifying shoot. You then have to demonstrate you can handle and reload and shoot another 70 rounds with both types of guns. That being done, I carry a 92FS or a Taurus 650 CIA .357 snubby. By the way, the shooting portion of the test is in Ill. and I didn't bring my weapons becuase of their laws.
That's good shooting. But I advise you delete that image from existence and burn the target.
Two are in the white.

Most people don't understand how handguns work in the real world.
You just have to pass a proficiency test. The law does not specify caliber or quantity of firearms to be tested, or even how the test is to be conducted. Most courses I have seen, including the one I teach only record your final score and do not keep track of guns used.

there was a time a few years ago in this great state of TN that you did have to have a permit for each gun you carry. but there is a formal handgun class and a passing score was recorded, at least there was in the classs i took. but betty was right in the fact that it is not listed to only the gun you have qualed with in Tn, just that you have and you should know when , where and how to carry one with some common sense. And the permits in TN no longer say concealed!Originally Posted by Betty
I sure am! I can successfully pull the trigger on every firearm that I own!! :-)
Indiana, being a pro-freedom paradise, doesn't require any "qualification" testing for a personal-protection handgun license, AKA CCW. I qualified as a 4-time Expert with the M-16A2 while in the U.S. Marines, so I figure I know pretty well which end the fast, pointy things come out of... Too bad I can't carry around my AR-15A2 HBAR on my Indiana Handgun License...

In OH, you have to have 2 hours of range time to 'qualify' for the permit - or rather an NRA Certificate of Completion to apply for a CCW. There are no hard and fast rules to 'qualifying' (ie hit COM from 25yds or any other such metrics), the instructor observes you shooting and makes the subjective call. You don't have to 'qualify' with the handgun that you are gonna carry, but the instructor insisted that the minimum caliber that he would consider for 'qualification' was 9mm and larger. Dunno if this was his opinion or state rule.
I practice with my CC weapons until I feel comfortable with my life using it, then I will carry it.
It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.

In California you have to qualify every gun you will carry and it must be on your permit. It is in noway worth losing your permit over to carry without qualifying. I recently bought a new glock 27 and couldn't carry it for two weeks until I qualified and got all the paperwork done and the Sheriff signed it. But hey it's worth it.

I have no official qualifications for any pistol I carry, the only qualification I have is for the berretta M9 (a pistol I would never own, much less carry). But as my state has no qualification requirement, I see no legal problem. As for my comfort level, I think you gain much more confidence just burning powder on the range. A qualification class is a good start for new shooters, but like a lot of things the only way to stay sharp is by practice. You can't get that from a qualification.
In Indiana you do not have to qualify with any gun you own. However since I am in law enforcement I do have to qualify every 6 months or so. Than means with everything I carry on and off duty.
My (Ohio) instructor required minimum .380, and I haven't seen any standard except that it be an actual firearm--There's an Ohio county where a bunch of CCW's were revoked when they discovered an instructor was having his students use a pellet gun.Originally Posted by Baby Hulk
My instructor will "requalify" me if I get another gun for $25. He's clear that it isn't a requirement, but claims it will help in a civil suit.
No requirement to "Qualify" with a given weapon in Arizona. That being said, I am qualified to my personal standards with everything I carry and have the targets to prove it. This is the ultimate level of personall responsibility. If you can not prove it to yourself, yall got no business packing it!!
