Here in WV the training requirement is not all that demanding. Those of us who try to offer better training than some others by teaching the NRA Basic Pistol Course have been completely screwed by the NRA. For over a month the NRA has been out of stock for packets. The new blended training has sort of launched but I'm not certain how a student can find an instructor for phase II since you cannot post a phase II class on the web site. I'm not certain why anyone would do that to begin with since they will have to pay the NRA $60 for the on-line portion and then the instructor for the live portion. A little tidbit that the website does not disclose to the student. Currently the going rate for classes here is $75 give or take. So if the instructor is not stupid enough to do his part for $15 most people will go to one of the 3 or 4 hour classes and save time and money. However, they will not learn much of anything. As far as I'm concerned this is just a ploy by the NRA to bring in more money at our expense. It has certainly made a mess of things here.
