    Hunters safety courses will not only teach you to be safe, meaning how not to kill yourself and others. It will teach you how not to be killed by other hunters.

    It is not like military training or CCW training. Most of it will be boring but there will be two or three nuggets in there that will make you say "Oh, I never thought of that.".

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    In other words, it's not just about carrying the gun. Is there some problem that keeps you from taking the course?
    In the same reguards, here in NC ccw has little on gun safety as well, mostly state laws.

    In nc you have to take them both, I am a former Marine scout Sniper and had to do it, no big deal

    But IMHO they are apples and oranges. Hunter safety education, military training and CCW training are all different subjects that are not interchangeable. As examples, my wife has a little of 24 years in the military. She hasn't touched a military handgun in 23 years. I know that she wasn't prepared to CCW with her military training, now if she had spent more time as a MP, that might have changed things.


    If the hunter safety education was taught to the military, we would lose most of our soldiers in battle. The military training doesn't teach the same level of safety as a hunter education course.

    Of course, don't take this wrong. I am not dismissing the value of military training.
    Are you saying that hunter safety teaches you to be more safety concerned than the Military? if so, I disagree, ever been to a USMC firing range and dealt with the range Nazis?

    Sometimes you just have to jump through the hoops. Even if it is stupid to have to do so.
    And in a Hunter's Safety Course you'll meet a bunch of new hunting buddies. (I did.)

    Wasn't critiquing your spelling. I rely on spell check LOL. Just never heard somebody that has been to airborne school say it like that "airborned jump out of plane". What division were you with? we might have seen each other? I was with groups most of the time.That is all. BTW: what makes ya think I am in a living room

    Another reason for the seemingly incongruacne of the laws is that ccw and hunters licenses are generally handled by different agencies in the state government. Different agencies have different requirements and they don't usually work together to simplify them for citizens.

    Hunter safety in this state is just basic rifle and shot gun safety short education on hunting laws and regs where to find them. How much you can be fined if you mess up.
    CC course is about the law and safety not about shooting.
    Military training... Know a little about that. The only time I ever concealed carried anything in uniform was when I picked up or took a soldiers 45 or 9mm and stuck it in my vest to carry it for one reason or another.
    While many of the skills are the same I not sure I would say it was good train for CC in the normal world.
    So the way I see it
    Hunter safety is not a CC class, Military training is not a replacement for CC classes.
    I used my DD214 to apply for my CC in Wisconsin However I did go over all the class material .
    My wife also used her DD214 to get hers however she has chosen to take the 4 hours class anyway along with our daughter
    Sons Used their DD214's also and said they would take the class latter, want to put some money on when that will happen.
