QUOTE Instructor proceeds to go through several scenarios for us to determine whether or not deadly force would be acceptable.. QUOTE
I have been an instructor in Connecticut for over 30 years and this type of instructing is a huge NO NO. This is (in my opinion) legal advise. If you were to get in a scenario and told the police "My instructor told me I could shoot him" you just opened a very large can of worms. We are not allowed to interpret the law, we teach gun safety, marksmanship, types of guns, use of different guns etc. but never whether to shoot or not shoot someone. I would check you state regulations and go from there.
Best of Luck and congrats on your permit and I also hold a out of state Florida permit as I am a snowbird.
