    They're usually overpriced on most things. They do have some great sales every now and then though.

    I've heard of the Utah class being offered for $150 many times. I guess I was lucky enough to get a deal from a member...

    FREE TRAINING - FREE TRAINING - FREE TRAINING - FREE TRAINING -

    THIS QUALIFIES AS OF RIGHT NOW. TAKES A HALF HOUR ON LINE. PRINT OUT THE CERTIFICATE. YOUR DONE.

    CLICK HERE... http://www.mdgunsafety.com/


    Here is a free online course.

    http://www.mdgunsafety.com/

    This is all you'd need to get a WI permit assuming you have nothing else. According to the requirements at the top of pg 6 of the amendment (below), this class qualifies: "available to the public & is offered by a law enforcement agency"
    Free, online, takes maybe 30min, save & print a certificate to your computer.

    http://legis.wisconsin.gov/lfb/2011-...09_SB93_LC.pdf

    If this bill passes as-is, let's do our best to publicize this link.
    Take some revenue from the instructors who pushed so hard for required training, just to line their pockets.
    (It's not for safety, since there aren't problems in the 4CC states & the 12 states that license w/o training.)

    Training is good, more training is better.
    Gov't mandated training is bad.

    Do You Have Authoritative Confirmation

    that this course qualifies? Or are you making your best guess? It appears that instructors must be certified by DOJ. This also implies that there is an instructor. Doesn't hurt to take the course but I wouldn't rely on it being accepted and suggest that another means be utilized (instead of or in addition to the MD course).

    Exclamation Went To Gander...Saw Extremely High Prices And Left....

    Gander is so overpriced that their sale prices are higher than everyone else's non sale prices.

    Since I'm the one who originally found & posted this little gem, YES, I'm sure it meets the letter of the law as currently written. Go read the PDF for yourself.
    Very first line, top of pg. 6. This class is definitely:
    1) "a firearms safety or training course"
    2) "available to the public" and
    3) "offered by a law enforcement agency"

    This is offered by the MD State Police (meets #3),
    obviously freely available to the public on the web (#2),
    & is the safety training they require of their citizens to get a permit (#1).

    Even with the assortment of other documentation I have that I could use, I'm going to use the MD course.
    In part to show the stupidity of their requirement.
    In part because if they deny me a permit then they're breaking the law.

    Why not get it from the guy who priced it right the first time?

    Well, I used to buy all of my ammo from farm and fleet, then I was informed of the anti gun policy that they have, the gander is about a mile closer to me. And of course they price match, so that's why I won't go where they "priced it right the first time". So unless somewhere else prices lower, ill stick to f&f prices at gander. Who sells ammo cheaper?

    Lightbulb There are many places better than local stores to purchase ammo....

    I buy almost all of my shooting supplies online. I won't post where I buy on the site but if anyone is interested send me a PM and I will send you a list of places where I buy.

    Their selection is less than stellar. Their reloading section is a joke. They were at their best back when they were mostly a catalog operation with the store in Wilmont. Been downhill ever since they decided to go national. At least Cabela's has what I need 9 out of 10 times. How sad that I have to drive for over an hour when I have a Gander 10 minutes from home.

    It's good basic info. No harm in using it to start someone off right.
    It's nowhere near what someone really needs to know to safely carry, & it doesn't deal with the legal or emotional issues surrounding a SD situation.
