Well he has already put in more training the the state of AZ requires, 8 hours of legal lecture and 5 at 5yds, 5 at 10 yds, 70% accuracy. Also I think he has done more than half the people I ever cert. CCW.

But don't let that go to your head, just cause you have done good, keep it up, it is a responsibilty to carry, and make sure to practice weapon retention if you can, most dangerous part of OC.

Would you have believed them? What happened to your peephole?

For some reason mine was the only apt. on my floor with no peephole. Not a great place. I moved when my lease was up.

I hate the A&P in Hampton. Every time I go in there they seem bothered to have me in there as a customer. I was there with cash in hand looking to walk out the door with a 1911 that day and one of the guys behind the counter wouldn't even be bothered to answer a few simple questions. An earlier time I was looking for some ammo and when I inquired the guy responded look for yourself, never mind that you can't read anything in there because of the dim lighting.

A lot of gun shops around Virginia are their own worst enemy

I traced mine once but it started to really scare me so I stopped just before finishing. I've never tried to draw one freehand. Sadly, I have absolutely no artistic talent.
