    I understand the classroom time, but

    do you know the course of fire...at what range you must qualify

    ...passing score to get the permit ?

    well i talked to my dad and he said that
    you will start off in a class room for 2 hours or so
    then he will take you out and explan the rules of the range
    then he showes you what to do
    you shoot at a target from 5 yard then 10 then 15 and maybe 20 and hes looking for a good group
    then he showes you how to shoot at point plank range

    Sounds like a good start...alot of states require no type of training whatsoever...

    i just dont see how thats safe at all !!!!!!!!!!
    training should be required in all states in my opinion
     
  16. Indiana has no training either! Just pay, fingerprint, wait for background check, and then permit comes in the mail!!!
     
  17. The Second Amendment would seem to state otherwise.

    When I took my class I had to do a shooting course with 100 rounds at 7 yards, then about 8 hours in class learning all the laws & test afterwards. My wife took a class no test, no shooting, and was done in 3 hours. This is in Maine. Many different classes with the same outcome.

    I also only pay $45 for a PA 5 year permit...laminated with a pic that they take for you.

    If I brought two passport photos myself, it would have been cheaper...
