Carrying a concealed handgun is a huge responsibility. Pay attention to the legal side of the class, the shooting side is just to show you can handle a firearm safely, not to prove you're an expert marksman. Good luck, you'll be fine!

Enjoy the class, the classroom is to inform you of the laws and such, and any range time is always fun. Relax and enjoy the day.

Look into my virtual eyes. You'll relax,rrrrrreeeeellllaaaaaax! It's exciting!! At the same time listening closely and taking notes is a good idea. Our instructor shook things up a bit.

First we had to all act like farm animals and sound like them. Then we had to find the other "animal" like each other. It was two by two. Then came the introductions with the paired off group of one another.

After that things settled down and the ice was broken. Our instructor did say there was a test later and THAT perked some sleepy people up immediately! Turns out there was no test except range time. :)

Yours might be a bit entertaining as well.

The classes I have taken were all "open book" tests where people could help one another or even get the instructor to help them. The only shooting test we ever took that was pretty rigid was in Marshall county IA. many years ago. Needless to say the sheriff was like the South end of a horse headed North. He and I really never seen things the same way!!!!

My instructor was a ex-police chief and it was a very entertaining un-PC class, to say the least. The range time was in his garage with a homemade bullet trap. Fun

I'm not nervous at all. I'm looking forward a little quality time with my PT111. :) Going to a new (to me) outdoor range for the class. With this class I will meet requirement for SC and Fla, NRA basic pistol certification, and NRA firearm safety certification.

My instructor was amusing , informative and helpful. I blew it by being way too tense.

No caffeine for you on Saturday.

I took mine at the Sheriffs Range just behind the Jail. It was put on by the main instructor of the Sheriff Plus some retired and active guys one was a SWAT member.
It started out real informal kind of getting to know you kind of thing and them accessing your gun knowledge. Once they went over the basics of the guns we had. They took half the class out to shoot and the other stayed to watch a video.

Shooting was 3,5,7,10 and 20 yards for a total of 48 rounds You were allowed 3 misses. Then we all came in and they lectured us on gun laws and other things we needed to know and we ended up taking a 50 question test, you were allowed 5 wrong. It took all of eight hours and was vary well done. There were about 1/3 women and the rest people of all ages. With a few around 21 and one guy that was in his 60's The one good thing is they would help testify for you in case of a shooting which is why I took the course there. Its nice to have the backing of the guys that are out there everyday and are in charge of the courts to help you in a jam.
