    My class was a "blast"

    I took my CCW/CPL class last Saturday. That was the most fun outside of my.....Never mind.....That was the most fun I have had without my wife in 15-20 years....It was very informative and entertaining. I took the class from Ultimate Protection Academy out of Allen Park/Novi area. What a great class....
    I even shoot well...Well for me anyway...

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    The distance was only 21 feet,But I still think it was good shooting. I was very surprised. I don't have a whole lot of experience using my XD .40. The gun only has 100 rounds through it.

    The class I took was pretty informative, I would have liked to see some films or something, but it sounds pretty dull over all compared to your fun class. Glad you enjoyed it.

    I was the youngest one in my class by 20 years and I had the tightest groups and quite possibly the most knowledge of CCW. I was modest too. :) I had a good time in my class.

    Glad you had a good time, my instructor only told us one thing wrong that I know of, he said to always use hardball ammo, 'cause hollow points were hard to defend if you have to shoot someone...he's an old Marine and should know better, but even I'm wrong sometimes...

    Since you took the class in Novi (so assuming you are live in Oakland County), just wanted to share that I know several people from Oakland County who received their CCW in 4 weeks.

    PS - Nice shooting.

    I took my class with Ultimate Protection at the Gander Mountain store in Port Huron with the range time at Bluewater Sportsman's Club. It was indeed a blast. Mike and His wife are both pro's, aren't they? I took the class on May 31 and after hearing that Macomb County was taking up to 7 weeks to process apps, I waited until I moved up to Montmorency County to apply. It still took 52 days (yes, I counted ) but it would have only been 17 days if my prints had been process speedily at MSP. Actually had to be re-printed. The Gun Board met and the clerk called and said "come and pick it up." No interview.
