    Mine was two Saturdays... first Saturday was class room, second Saturday was field.

    The first Saturday was boring as fuck and I was really looking forward to the field portion the following weekend. Blew my knee out in a football game that week, and ended up in an immobilizer for the field day and just had to sit watch everybody do the stupid "this is how not to pull a Dick Cheney" safety walkthroughs for like 8 hours straight. I got my certificate anyway but is sucked. :rofl:

    In FL doesn't your CWP take the place of hunter safety?

    My local range is suggesting I start with private lessons before going for my CCW class. Is a hunter safety class necessary if I don't have any intention of hunting or would it be better to just take some private lessons then go for the CCW?

    Hunter's safety is pretty much the basic rules of handling a firearm and then hunting laws. If you don't intend to hunt, just find a good CCW class. There's some around here that last like 8 hours, 4 in class and 4 at the range for around $95.

    You have it backward. Your hunter's safety can count for the training required when getting your cwl.

    nope, but your hunter safety can take the place of your CWP class. The only real thing you have to tell the state is that you can safely handle a fire arm.


    I need to get my hunter safety here done, I took a CWP class for convince of times. At least here you can take the classroom part of the class online and then schedule a finishing "range day"

    where you at down there? I spent a year in Oviedo. Not a big fan of the area and apparently crime has gotten to the point in orange county where they are issuing full auto submachine guns to combat incidents with AK-47s . . .
