Thread: After over a year since joining...

  1. After over a year since joining...

    I finally became a firearm owner so this is no longer an academic exercise for me. I am now the proud owner of a Glock 19 gen 4 and take the SC CWP class next week.

    Congrats on the Glock. Be sure to stock up on ammo too. Good luck next week.

    My congrats as well. As far as good luck goes, if you need "good luck" to pass the SC course, you probably are not or have not been taught properly. Hopefully your CCWP instructor was a competent and responsible instructor and not a "diploma mill" type, who are out there in SC. My course was with BELT Training in the Charleston/Dorchester County area and James Judy was as good as it can get. Be safe and hopefully, you will only spend time at a range and never have to use your new Glock for anything else, and remember situational awareness--it is, IMO, the be all and end all as a precursor to any need for a firearm; I am 72 and have never ever had a need to even think firearm other than at the range.

    Congrats on the new firearm. Also, I hope all goes well with getting your "permission slip" from the government.

    In addition, hopefully you won't be lurking in the shadows anymore and will contribute and ask questions.

    I would like to offer my congratulations on passing the test. I think that you'll find a lot of useful information, some good people, and strongly held political opinions on this forum. Most are conservative (with a few exceptions) and dedicated constitutionalists. As with every forum, we have a few trolls who like to make controversial statements just to stir up controversy. I think you'll find some thoughtful and intelligent posts from "gun loving rednecks".

    I went unknowingly to a "diploma mill" for my cwp class. The certificates were all signed before the class even started. The way it seemed was as if you didn't shoot the instructor or shoot yourself in the foot you passed. I took basic and advanced gun classes before and after this,but I'm wondering about the other 23 people in this class.
