I got my CFP application shipped off today. The course I took on Saturday was pretty much worthless to me–I didn’t learn anything because I’ve been pretty involved with CCW since I bought my handgun. It was probably a good class for beginners, but I knew more about state law than the instructor did, and I already knew how to handle and shoot my handgun safely (I’ve shot 850 rounds through it so far). But the only way to get a permit is to take a course from a state-certified instructor, so I had to do it. The only thing I got out of it was a sunburn, which will unfortunately show up on the photo on my CFP.
