    It's all about the instructor. The legislated minimums for the course can be delivered in a dry boring format or be a day of entertaining, practical education. If you're in Missouri, you can't do better than to take a class from police Sergeant Paul Bastean at http://www.mocct.com

    You can't carry in places that matter most anyway. You know those places that have signs posted "NO LOADED WEAPONS ALLOWED". Which most likely will be the place that a gunman will attack. Criminals don't care about those signs. But, since we are law abiding we go through the process. And uncle ted is right. It is our 2nd Ammendment right. I don't call that running his mouth, I call that smart. Right to bare arms...

    Sharkfin,
    Uncle Ted runs his mouth a lot. Get your CC license.

    Uncle Ted says "I don't need to take a class and get a piece of paper to carry a gun, I've got the 2nd Ammendment".

    Good instructors make all the difference. Open discussions with the lawyers seem to be the most interesting. That's when some people decide they don't want the responsibilities and potential legal issues that go with carrying a gun.

    Unfortunately, there was an accident recently in Michigan. I don't have all the details but a CCW instructor was showing various guns to the participants and pulled the trigger of a gun with a live round in the chamber. The bullet went through a man's face into the left side of his head behind his ear. Luckily, the bullet missed his artery, brain, ear, etc. and was removed. He is just left with a couple of scars. The instructor is an older gentlemen, well-respected, and quite experienced, yet he broke at least 2 or 3 rules of gun safety. Sobering.

    I let my Georgia permit expire before I decided to apply for a NC one. I didn't know that you could "transfer" a good permit. Now I have to do all the above stuff.

    It sounds like the instructors make the course pleasant or not, according to you guys. In Georgia (at the time I got my original one), the only thing you needed for a permit is a clean record and the Judge to have a good day.

    I agree Jim in MO, in the class NC has a blind door shot. This is where someone is attempting to break into your house you can shoot through the door or window. But then we were told that once they are in the house don't even think about shooting unless you are in danger of death.

    The CC course here actually made me wonder why I wanted a CC. They stated the law and what we may expect if we even pull a gun, not to mention pull the trigger.
    The repercussions is what people must know.

    I've also been through the NC courses. The instructor did share several things that were not in the reading, but other than that, i lost a hunk of money.

    I actually enjoyed the one given here in Kentucky.
    The video was rather long and repetitious, but the guys that taught the course were amusing,knowledgeable and provided nice snacks and drinks.

    Out of the 15 or so men there to take the test,I knew almost all of them. That may have been part of the reason I enjoyed it.

    I knew a lot of the items that were covered, but it didn't hurt to re-fresh my memory.

    The course in Kentucky was $75.00.

    I do remember one elderly gentleman, that was on the firing line, and kept waving his .38 revolver around.
    The instuctor talked to him privately ...

    In the 4 hours of videos we also had, there were two skits in which a drunk was the instigator and ended up pulling the gun. Come on the guy either way is in the wrong. Just horrible.

    Shotguns are pointed, rifles are aimed. I seriously doubt an AR shotgun has any wing shooting feel to it at all. Home defense and turkeys sure, but no...
