In my opinion I did not get the support from the one instructor. Why I don't know but the info that was received as school books helped me gain more than I already knew so beyond the help it was ok for me. The cost could have been cheaper for the material a few quick videos along with that you viewed online. No real talk with other students either. But that could have been me. Lucy enough for me that I've been in contact with firearms for some time via hunting and rec shooting and a archer so I could follow their info. Hope any and all of that jibber jab helped

Thanks for your info. I did receive one shipment of materials before I cancelled and I have to admit that Penn's course material was way better in the way it was presented and printed versus what I am getting with Modern Gun School. Theirs is a bunch of copied pages sent two, three or four chapters, the other thing I hate about the way they are sending the material is they will cover a typic a little say in chapters 3 & 6, then resume more of the typic in chapters 12 & 13. Just cover the course material in one long chapter and move on.
If I have not had any experience before this I would not recommend them period.
Hope this helps.

Once you branch out on your own and before you can charge for services preformed on customer firearms will be required to have your class 7 FFL. This is what I have per our ATF interview before we received ours, I also got a class 6 so we can manufacture and sell ammo.
Hope this helps

Just wanted to pass on I just talked to one of the student advisors at Penn Foster and she told me they have updated a few things in the last few months. One being they started a community forum for the students, and there are videos available for nonline viewing. There are few more questions I need answered before I decide if I will switch to them over Mondern Gun School, but as screwed up as they are I am really starting to like Penn more and more.
