I think they're making the right decision. I decided to forego the NRA's blended training course and go with the concealed carry course taught by my state's Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks. I didn't like the idea of doing one part of the course online, then having to track down someone to do the shooting qualification with, when I could do both at the same time. Best decision I ever made, because the man that taught me was ex military, a former member of the Navy Pistol Shooting Team, and a former instructor at Gunsight Academy. I had confidence that when I passed the qualification with him, I was competent enough to carry in public.
