    Getting ready to take the plunge.

    Well folks wish me luck. I will be taking a class for my ccw in Kentucky on May 14th. I am just trying to decide what to use: my CZ P -01 or my Glock 19. what should I expect? To my fellow Kentuckians, how long does it take to get the permit? Any input will be welcome.

    I vote for G-19. Simple statement no frills. Shows you mean business without being pretentious. I'm a former Kentuckian, but I am now a Coloradian and can not get a KY CCW. However, my CO CCW is good in KY.

    As I recall once you take your CCW course completion certificate to the Sheriff's office it takes 4 weeks for your letter to arrive stating your permit is ready to be picked up.

    Either one will serve you sufficiently well. You should choose the one which points most naturally for you. At seven (7) yards, however, you shouldn't be able to miss even with your eyes shut!

    I would go with the firearm you feel most comfortable with...it that was me it would probably be the Glock...simple is better in a class.
    sorry but don't know about Kentucky law...
    Have FUN in your class, it should not be a stressful situation at all.

    Funny story....I just took my class last Saturday and submitted paperwork yesterday. Yippee! But anyway when all 25 of us were instructed to get our guns and report to the range I witnessed the funniest damn thing. This guy went to his brand new Mercedes, got his gun which was in a really nice Aluminum case. He had the tactical belt, 3 mags, holster, S&W sunglasses, S&W Hat, the shirt telling us that he was a real fan of S&W, tactical shorts, North face boots. We were laughing the entire time. Most of us normal people just had a simple range bag and took our 30 shots and were done with it. Oh and my wife shot better than he did and it was her 4th time shooting a pistol. hehe

    Don't get me started on the guy that turned his fully loaded revolver 180 degrees towards about 15 of us.

    wow...that sounds scary...25 people in a class...how many range safety officers were there? When I teach, we have one safety officer for each firearm on the line, and that RSO is responsible for that firearm.
    I am scared to ask what part of michigan....

    These classes should be FUN, and educational...but most importantly...the instructor should make sure it is SAFE
