It can be a one day here. Take a pen and paper. You will know what you need to make a note of.

10-4... Wasn't sure. SC was 8 hours class room and like 4-8 range time. Some instructors were doing it in 6-8 hours total. S.L.E.D. Was not happy with them.

Friend of mine helps his brother teach a class every Saturday.
He said they have dropped to 25 shots instead of 50 because nobody can get ammo.

He said he has seen some EXPENSIVE ammo shot in the last month or so.
They can't get anything else but the high end shells.

Took the course last year at Frontier Firearms in Kingsport.
Great people.
Take handgun you are comfortable shooting and 1 box ammo.
Take it in with you , unloaded of course. They will probably have a lock up for your guns.
Very important to transport the gun unloaded, no rounds in the magazine or anywhere within reach. Best to have ammo in trunk if possible.

Its wise to take the gun you plan to carry. At least thats what I was told when I took the class. And was told you dont want to shoot a perfect score. Im sure your instructor will explain.

no need in that. we rented a 22 that neither of us had shot and bought a box of 100 22lr shells. we both shot for less than the cost of 1 box of 40 cal. and we would've had to use 2 boxes of 40s for the class.

Why not want to post a perfect score?

And I don't meen this negative and I am no crack shot or sharp shooter, but if someone has to have two boxes of shells to qualify, they need not have a permit. jmo
