    SDA License Instructors/Classes Norman area?

    My niece is buying her husband a handgun for Father's Day (his first handgun and first Father's Day). They went looking, and he liked the Ruger SR-40c. Now, they're going to need Handgun License training so he can carry. They asked me for a recommendation for "someone who is good." My problem is I don't know any instructors in that area of the state. So, any recommendations, contact information, and prices of the training, and is there a discount if both of them take the class? (Doesn't hurt to ask.) My niece has a .357 Magnum S&W Model 640 that she currently doesn't carry. I don't want to just send them off to H&H Gun Range in OKC because I know where it is, but if they are good to go I'd like to know that as well.

    Thanks, folks!

    H&H is where I took my class. I thought it was a good one. Also, they invite you to come back at any time for a no-cost refresher, asking that you only give them a call to let them know. (space is the reason I think, but they did say that they PREFER you do, but you don't gotta).

    My cousin got his at a place in Yukon, I think, and he enjoyed it there. I'd have to find a time to get him on the phone to find out the details, though.

    Wish I could be of more help, but those are the only ones I have ANY knowledge of.

    Thanks, Mixael. Just trying to help them out. If you can talk to your cousin before I end this thread, I'd appreciate hearing where he took his class.

    The amount of information gained in a CCW class is minimal - reading the manual to the firearm gives better information.

    I would go for cheap cheap cheap to just get the permit; want detailed training? Seek after permit is obtained.

    The requirement for a class is just BS , a hurdle one must pass to carry per their rules.

    It depends on the instructor and the student. I teach some minimal information classes that meet the requirements simply because the student is very knowledgeable. For example a former police officer or former military service member. I also tailor classes to add more for students who want more information.

    I do agree though that for the most part 8 hours of class with the requirements that the SDA has simply is not enough time to do much more then get your feet wet.
