CCW is a stupid term anyway. Even if you live in a state that requires concealment.
In CT its particularly stupid because a gun is the only weapon that you can conceal legally really.
The class can be accurately characterized as 2 things.
1) NRA intro to handguns class. (I forget the exact title)
2) CT pistol permit class.
Either way, its not a CCW class.
I explicitly tell my pistol permit class students that they will NOT learn enough in that class to go out and effectively carry outside the home.
Specifically, they will not have been taught.
1)Holster selection criteria
2) the proper way to draw from a holster
3) shooting from a retention position
4) point shooting
The class does provide the skills necessary for home defense in a "defend in place" scenario, but mainly the goal is to get the shooter SAFE so that they can continue to practice and gain proficiency on their own.
