Default CCW class

I am new so if this post is in the wrong spot please point me in the right direction. I am about to take the ccp class on the third (Ed's gun shop on US 1). I am wondering a few things about preparation. What should I wear? Do I need to bring a range bag? Do bring my firearm into the building when I get there? Anyone with ANY information on the class would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

Don't about your specific class but the one I have in three weeks wants you to bring the following:

Firearm
50 rounds of ammo
Ear and eye protection
Clothing appropriate for the day's weather

My friend who took the same class told me you need to be experienced with the weapon you take. How to cock, decock, load, unload, and fire. Also where all of the safety devices are.

I would assume most of the CCW classes are the same or similar.

Go armed to the teeth, dressed for battle, and have all magazines loaded.

All kidding aside: Go to the CCW class with your gun and shooting gear, but go with humbleness.

I agree, I would go prepared as if I were spending a day at the range.

I wouldn't load the mags. Some instructors like to load 3-5 and do reload drills. Just bring the ammo and let your instructor tell you what to do. As for your weapon, bring it in its case unloaded of course.
