I finished the shooting part of the CCW class this evening. We took the classroom part of the class on Saturday, but got 9 inches of snow so we couldn't go to the range that day. We went tonight and qualified with our pistols. It was a great experience and I learned a lot. The instructor was a Sheriff Lieutenant and he was very knowledgable and helpful when it came to shooting properly. He took a great deal of time to tell us the proper stances, aiming techniques, and sight alignment. Our final test was 12 shots, 6 at 3 yards and 6 at 6 yards. My group was pretty good, except 2 strays that were about 6 inches off target. The officer said I was probably pulling the trigger too fast and hard, and not squeezing it slowly. After I slowed down, I started shooting better. I did pass, as did all 20 some students. So I will hopefully have my CCW permit in a few weeks!
