A multi-day instructional program, sounds exactly like a carbine class. Now there are 1 day, 2 day and 3 day carbine classes. This is the first time I have ever heard them called schools. Maybe "course" is a better word. I tend to think of school as a multi month sort of thing.

Do you see how comparing the 2 firearms performance during a carbine course doesn't make sense?

Well on the classroom material they were named School, but your right, course would be more appropriate.

I wonder if it's a funding thing? I imagine most tax payers would feel more comfortable paying for a "school" than a "course" lol.

Are you still in corrections?

More than likely it is.. I started at the sheriff office as a part time deputy in 2004 and left corrections in 2005 to be a deputy full time. I left the sheriff office in 2009 to work in the oilfield. I will be returning to corrections within the next few months, less BS and health and retirement are alot better

Good deal man. I sit in a class w/ a couple of guys in juvenile corrections. It does not sounds fun.
