    Need a recommendation for a carry class in Claremore

    My father-in-law now wants to take the carry class and get his license. I have talked to him many times about why I carry and he seems to be ready for the class. I doubt he will carry, except in his car, but still, another gun in the right hands is a good thing. He won't leave the Claremore area, so I need to get recommendations for a class in or very near Claremore. He is 86, so anyone good with older folks would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Is a class really required? While not a "carry" case, I think it cracks open the door for argument -- and this is a DC case

    “..Attend a firearms training or safety course providing "a total of at least one hour of firing training at a firing range and a total of at least 4 hours of classroom instruction." § 7-2502.03(a)(13)(A)… All of these requirements, such as the mandatory five hours of firearm training and instruction, § 7-2502.03(a)(13)(A), make it considerably more difficult for a person lawfully to acquire and keep a firearm, including a handgun, for the purpose of self-defense in the home — the "core lawful purpose" protected by the Second Amendment, Heller, 554 U.S. at 630…. With respect to ..7-2502.03(a)(13)(A)…the judgment is vacated and this matter is remanded to the district court for further proceedings consistent with this opinion…” Dick Anthony Heller, ET AL., Appeallants v. District of Columibia, ET AL., Appellees. No 10-7036, United States Court of Appeals, District of Columbia Circuit. Argued November 15, 2010, Decided October 4, 2011.

    Required by the Oklahoma Self Defense Act, so YES.

    That case is about a license being required to own and keep a firearm in your home. No such requirement exists in Oklahoma. A license is required to carry a concealed or unconcealed handgun in public in Oklahoma. In order to get said license, one must submit a certification that this course was successfully completed.

    If a trainer has to be approved by the state, then the place to go is the agency that makes such approval..
