    The proficency test was a joke. The target was the size of a 400Lb. man.

    Good informatin in the class ... now all I need is to get some fingerprints and some notary work done and wait for the license.

    you have to take a CCW test in Texas? I thought Texas was like one of the most gun friendly states?

    Take training beyond the state mandated basic class. There is a lot more to learn about fighting with firearms.

    I'm surprised you can even get a CCW in PA :o

    GA is the same way though. I went to the courthouse to pay the court clerk, went to the local PD for fingerprints/background check, and in a week I had my CCW in the mail.

    honestly I prefer a class to get your CCW. You have to take a test to get a driver's license to prove you can handle a car in public safely, so should you take a test to prove you can handle a weapon you carry in public safely. I have had people in my classes that I didn't pass because they would be more likely to shoot themselves or someone else on accident then be able to use their weapon properly in a time of need.

    I'm a huge fan of training BUT where exactly in the US Constitution is your position supported?

    Here in Maine you have to take a 12hr class and then just pass the background check and in about a month you have you ccw permit.

    They tell you it can take up to 3 months, but I got mine a week later. It was in April of 05, Gwinnett County.

    Nowhere in the constitution does it say anything about carrying concealed. So therefore having training to carry a weapon concealed in public has nothing to do with the constitution either.

    I can walk down the street with my sidearm in open view on my hip or under my shoulder and I don't need a test to do so, but when it's concealed, then it requires a test and permit.

    Ditto. The wording is, "...the right to bear arms shall not be infringed."

    There are no exceptions based on the manner in which arms are borne (meaning, concealed or otherwise). This position is supported by the US Constitution, even if scumtards and shitbag judges have fucked us all along the way.
