    Should I go shoot it on my own (with husband) first or go to the class as a fresh newbie, never having shot a gun?
    nice to see a local on the forum :)

    Like I said, check out the MO Carry forum (good folks and a great way to get to know other shooters in the area). Holler at me if you have any questions.

    Congrats.

    It would probably be best to get alittle trigger time in before you go to the CCW class. Do you have to qualify on a target in MO like in KS??

    Being in a class and being watched can cause a bit of anxiety to some people, and much of that could be relieved if you already have a good understanding of your firearm and some practice shooting it. By the time you take the course, you'll be an ole pro at gun handling, loading, shooting, etc. which will likely make you more comfortable. Just make sure you are doing thngs right and don't develope bad habits. Start out on the right foot.

    Good luck.

    yes...15/20 (I think) on a B-27 at 7 yards...not difficult at all. If whoever is teaching you is even marginally competent, you'll be capable of this before you finish the first box of ammo (if not the first mag).

    Welcome to the wonderful world of gun ownership.\

    Shoot straight!

    I have taught my wife safety and basics and she is getting better but I forget that she has not shoot as much as me or handled as many weapons as often.

    A local range has a ladies only class I would like her to take.
