    Fastbruce, welcome from Goldsboro. The course is rather short - 8 hours and the shooting requirements are easy. Just pay attention in the class and you will do just fine.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    Welcome.
    The shooting test at the range for permit is easy.
    Dont think you even have to qualify
    with the handgun you are going to be carrying.
    I qualified with a Kel tec .32 at 10 yards and
    didnt know it was even going to be for my CHP
    because I asked the instructor about the class after
    I was done shooting and he looked at my target and said
    he would verify it ahead of time. The class will discuss gun laws
    and basic safety then a small test with some questions.

    Thats about what I figured, I have had handguns and rifles for most of my life Im 51 and figured its time to get a CCW so I can carry, I moved to NC from MI 5 years ago to work in Nascar
