I don't think I should have to do anything to be able to conceal a weapon, so the smaller the requirements the better. That being said I didn't take the online course- I have many other certificates that VA honored..so can't speak as to the quality of instruction..Do we really think we can learn what there is to know in "just under an hour?"
Is this the type of "training" we want the anti's advertising?
I'm not knocking it, I'm just saying, It takes me a few days of classes to get a driver license, but I can pack a deadly weapon after watching a 40 minute video?
I'd like to take the "class" just to see really how great it is, but not for $39. I think gimmicks like this hurt our credibility.
P.A.: So let me get this right Mr. Doe, you watched a 40 minute video then shot my client?
I totally understand your point of view but tend to agree with ClearSight...there should be NO requirements to be allowed to carry concealed.
We have noticed some amazing numbers that may interest you...over 50% of the people taking the course are women. I believe that to be statistically significant. We think it is because of the lack of apprehension that comes with stepping into a male dominated past time.
Our class takes about 90 minutes, not forty, and was designed to be a challenge...the student must actually absorb the information in order to pass the course...
:Wonders if I'm the only person who found this post offensive:Good luck with it. I hope the broads at least learn which end the bullet comes out of. Does the training course from the Maryland State Police count also?
MD Firearms Safety Training
I thought there was a test at the end, but you just read it all then print out the training certificate.
Guess I'm just old fashioned.

Sir, just because its online doesn't mean it isn't worth anything. Most colleges offer some form of "distance learning" that are counted as credits just like in person classes. You're the perfect example of why many women would probably lean towards an online course..
Gotta go. I found me a PHd doctorate degree online for $79.99.
Based on the misogynistic nature of your post, I would guess that you must be the monkey the news paper is talking about. While I too have some concerns about the quantity of the training, that can be fixed. You can't fix stupid.:nono:Good luck with it. I hope the broads at least learn which end the bullet comes out of. SNIP...

Actually you must be a youngster. I NEVER "Sat Through" a course in my life as I prefer to learn what is offered by participating. I have been teaching firearms classes since 1969. Everything from Hunter Safety and large bore rifle to Shotgun and law enforcement handgun training. I have been shooting a lot longer than that. So I am really not impressed by your CV as neither yours nor mine are pertinent to the point of my post.Doubt it. With security, law enforcement, & military training, I've probably sat thru more hours of course time than you have even holding a gun. I've completed level IV training, and worked in the field 23 years.
