Gun show and hotel conducted concealed carry weapons classes provide absolutely NO gun handling training.
It should to be understood, not all concealed carry classes are alike.
Most are ‘certificate mills’.
Few provide any handgun training.
Those classes conducted in rented hotel rooms and at gun shows are the greatest examples.
Educate yourself, ask questions, know what you are spending your money and time on before you commit to a class.
Are you aware that in a hotel conducted concealed carry class:
There is no firearm training conducted
There is no trip to a range to fire a real handgun
The firearm proficiency evaluation involves the firing of ONE paint cartridge at a paper target taped to the hotel room wall
A great portion of the class involves the selling of insurance
You receive a black and white photocopy of a certificate on which you have to hand print your own name
