I could have taken the eight hour version, but wanted to learn all I could. The first day was gun safety, how to handle, etc. We did touch on some laws, but the law stuff came down heavy on Sunday and I am glad I had the instructor at Maxons I did have.
Those that skirt the rules knowingly deserve to have their CCL revoked until they can prove they have taken the course by a certified CCL instructor
More time spent on the law, particularly the "when & when NOT" aspects would be preferable to me. Basic gun handling should be limited to novice gun owners and those who actually want a "refresher course". If an instructor spends 2-3 minutes with each person, then another 10-15 with the group, he should have a good idea of who needs the additional training. Have a subordinate take those aside for retraining, let the proficient and safety-concious students to move ahead for a more detailed grounding in the law.
If I could find somebody that does a 12 hour class, I would probably take it. My hunter safety cert lets me bypass 4 hours but nobody is doing 12 hours in this area.
It gives you 4hrs credit. NRA Basic Pistol gives you 8hrs credit.
I'm guessing no one offers a discount for 12 because you're still gonna be there for two days of class. If only you had 8hrs credit...Go to the full post
