    Culver signed the bill . My renewal date is in March of 2011. As I read the bill: I'll have to renew 30 days prior to expiration; It will cost me $25; I will have to do what, for renewal Show that I'm a Honorably Discharged soldier? Take another class? Go to the range? Help me out on understanding this portion of the law. Thanks in advance.

    If I recall the legislation correctly: You will have to fulfill the training requirements within a 1 year period prior to the application for renewal. I don't have a copy of the training options handy, but it shouldn't be too hard to find. Get a document stating that you fulfilled one of the training options within a year before the renewal time, and you should be good to go.

    The Department of Public Safety should have it all clarified and explained in plain English well before the end of this year.

    So I can use the training I received for issue as my renewal training (Since I received it less than a year prior to renewal). Thanks, I'll keep an eye on documents coming out of the Dept of Public Safety.

    Not sure how the "within 12 months of renewal" works for DD-214. :?

    But you could still go to the range to requalify if you desire.
