    ^ yea ok....

    you need to take a class, fill out paper work with fingerprints and 2 passport photos, and prove you know how to use a gun. Takes about a month to get after paperwork is in.

    That could be a good reason not to give PA advice in a thread about FL CCW.

    I was just pointing out that my state feels that its ok to just do a quick background check and hand you a licence. not jump through hoops to use my right.

    The application can all be done by mail. Your class can be local as long as it meets FL's requirements.

    Take training beyond the minimum required. A hunter's safety course does not prepare you to use a pistol for defense.

    Of course. Considering the FL permit takes 90 days, I have plenty time.

    For that matter neither does the NRA Pistol Class.

    I recommend to everybody I teach that 6 months after they buy their first pistol they should go take a GOOD training course.

    I have no clue for other areas. I direct people to American Small Arms Acadamy (Chuck Taylor\Masood Ayoob). That's some of the best training money can buy.

    It's a FL based company but they have an instructor (Paul Gomez) who lives in Baton Rouge, LA.

    If you can find a local host range, those Tactical Response guys are pretty good.
