    Yes, and if you can't meet the requirement there is no way you should be allowed to carry a gun.

    You would prohibit self-defense to the blind?

    Your phrasing grates on my sensibilities. "No way you should be ALLOWED to carry a gun?" Since when is the exercise of a fundamental right of a free man (to paraphrase the Supreme Court in US v Cruikshank) something that is dependent upon being ALLOWED? Rather, the exercise of rights are not "allowed" although they can be infringed or prohibited. I'm being picky because the very acceptance of the word "allowed" with regard to rights implies the idea that the exercise of such rights is forbidden until authority approves.

    That is the polar opposite of the concept upon which our country was founded and the Constitution written. It is, however, quite consistent with the European version of socialism and with the Divine Right of Kings which preceded that philosophy. How we define the terms of the fight predetermines the outcome and if we define our rights as something to be "allowed" we've already ceded them to the government's will and discretion.

    About the same in TN, Knox County anyways, 70% to pass, but we practiced a lot, with 22s with the same style silouetts and at the same ranges, so we both got 100s, would never carry a 22 as a primary self defence weapon, but they work great for targets,

    Oklahoma

    In Oklahoma, the requirement is using a B-27 target, Course of fire:

    3-yard line, 15 rounds, in 5 round increments, no time limit

    5-yard line, 15 rounds, in 5 round increments, no time limit

    3-yard line, 10 rounds, in 5 round increments, time limit of 10 seconds per 5 rounds

    5-yard line, 10 rounds, in 5 round increments, time limit of 15 seconds per 5 rounds.

    Total rounds 50.

    There is no pass/fail score.

    Nothing in the second amendment about training.

    Regarding the question posed in the original post, Colorado has no range requirement in its training requirement for the CCW permit. The instructor of my mandated training had his own range requirement, and I have chosen additional training of my own free will---the way it should be.

    Noisy Cricket, AKA Kimber 1911ARF .22, a is a good semi-auto to practice with. Cheap to shoot. Although it is louder than one would expect. Just don't try feeding it light loads. HV and 39 or greater grain bullets.

    True, nothing in the amendment about training so make sure you don't deny your 4 year old a gun as is his constitutional right.

    The constitution does not govern the actions of the people, rather it governs the actions of the government. It is the laws made for the republic by the government that govern the actions of the people. The second amendment simply means the laws the government puts in place must allow for citizens to be armed in some fashion. It does not mean all citizens have a right to a firearm with no regulation.

    Texas requires 20 rounds at 3 yards, 20 rounds at 7 yards and 10 rounds at 15 yards. All timed. Some, a single shot at a time, some double taps etc. Target is a green B27, possible score of 250. I forget what the minimum is to pass. Handling seems to be the focus though, but you can fail the shoot. It's really pretty easy in my opinion.

    Oh yeah, you have to use a .32 or bigger for the qualification. Use a semi-auto, you can carry anything. Use a revolver, and you're limited to carrying a revolver.

    Didn't do it eyes closed today. But put all 20 rounds in the 5 point rings. Used 2 different guns with 4 types of ammo.
