I find it just a little insulting that proof of military training is not accepted by civilian authorities as demonstrating competence. I was trained to maintain and repair everything from a 1911 to a 5" cannon, and to train the crews that manned them. When I took the class for my Oregon CHL I took a individual class and the guy looked at my DD214 and asked a few questions and laughed. He said we had to watch the required videos and then admitted I was more than qualified. He went through the required material,,but agreed it was kinda dumb. I understand and agree that proof of competency is vital.....but if the military says you are qualified..shouldn't that be good enough???
