    and I just realized I don't have ear protection. I'm not gonna have time to stop and get anything after work either. Do you think they'll have extras to borrow there?

    I'm kinda nervous - this is my first gun class. I wish I had gotten some more range time in. I hope I don't do anything stupid :noes:

    Rite-Aid carries Leight ear-plugs and there is a Rite-Aid on every corner, stop and hook it up.

    Shooters world. $79 for the class (10% off if you're a member). $65 for the State Application fee.

    The do all the fingerprinting and send in the paperwork at the actual class.

    Any local supermarket or drug store sells ear plugs.

    Is the class indoors or outdoors?

    those foam earplugs work better than anything else. and they're like $1 anywhere for 20. i'll never use anything else.

    It's indoors.
    I've only put about 150 rounds through this particular gun (New USP.45).

    I've never needed to bring ear protection. They're free for members at the range I go to. I've been meaning to get some, but I keep forgetting.

    those silencio $1.50 baffled plugs are awesome. i have a couple pairs lying around here somewhere. but for DB reduction, nothing beats the foam.

    on break in class. holy crap I do not want to have to shoot someone. they sure make it sound bad even if you are totally justified.

    I'm always on the look out for someone to shoot, I can't wait til I can kill someone. People are worthless.
