Whats up group, applied for my permit in Newnan, Ga and they said 4 to 5 weeks, no training no nothing, just fingerprints. I received it in 7 days. Seemed a little easy?
I just had to say a big AMEN to that. I could not see my wife, with a concealed permit, even though no kids at home. Unless she has had the basic gun course, some range time, then the concealed carry course from KY, that takes 8 hours to complete with firing according to what I have been told.4play said:Because of the people that have no or very limited shooting experience, I prefer that everyone have to actually qualify & have some safety training. I hate to think of a frightened soccer mom blasting away that has never practiced, or really considered what's behind the BG she's trying to stop.
Same thing here is Vegas. An 8 hour course (mine was taught by an active LEO) with a test you have to score 100% on. If you shoot an auto, you need to range qualify with every auto you plan to have listed on your CCW. Revolvers are much easier -- qualify with one and you are good for all revolvers. Revolvers include darringers, too.Robby said:Unless she has had the basic gun course, some range time, then the concealed carry course from KY, that takes 8 hours to complete with firing according to what I have been told.
I just wonder, did you have a permit in AZ. I can see a state accepting proof from another state of a valid permit, and issuing with no waiting or training.hike500 said:I moved here from Arizona and they required the course before you could get your permit. I would think that at the very least a simple questionaire would be good.

Smokewagon said:I observed a class several weeks ago doing their qualification shoot. Young lady in the class stated that she had never handled a firearm in her life before that qualification. The instructor saw to that she knew what she was doing by the time she left. Now this was in the Great State of Texas. She had already completed the classroom portion on laws etc. earlier in the day. :clap:
So I say don't just hand them out. Ya gotta jump through a few hoops first. :thumb:
There are plenty of d___ fools in the general population... I can't see arguing for the clueless clowns surrounding us to be armed on a whim.Ace said:While I support responsible firearms ownership, I don't feel you need to take a class to excersize a right.
