completed MO ccw class
I went to a local ccw certification class over the weekend. The instructors admitted it was meant for someone who had never handled a gun before and they weren't kidding. The county prosecuting attorney did spend about 1 hour reading and discussing the do and don't aspects. Most of the class was basic gun safety, handling, cleaning, and storing of firearms. I'm not saying that the info wasn't important but it wasn't what I was expecting. The other thing that was surprising was the age/gender makeup of the class. Of the 14 attending, there were 3 women (all wives of other classmates), 1 man around 25-30, 1 man 35-40, and the rest of us men over 50. I didn't get any specific reasons why everyone was planning to get their ccw permit but I didn't see anyone who looked like they were going to be starting gunfights helter skelter.
