  • Congratulations! I got my certification card back in middle school and have it in my wallet to this day!

    I would rather go out hunting with you (if I were a hunter) than with some of the "good-old boys" that I have encountered.

    Happy plinking!

  • Congratulations!

    I wish more people would take such courses.

    (I think,in the Nordic countries,they're mandatory for everyone.

    Can you imagine a child being sent home because he *didn't* bring his gun to school-or a Number 2 pencil?)

    Gun classes can take the fear and mystique out of these tools and add healthy respect for the weaponry.

    Like martial arts classes,they'd remove a lot of the Hollywood glamor but they'd replace that with competence and responsibility.

    I commend you for adding more skills to your repetoire.

    Adding new interests and skills may be what adds maturity to our youth but it's what keeps adults young and vital.

  • Can you take the course online at any time, because my wife needs to get hers. Because of time restraints she cant commit to the week long classes.

  • Are these classes sort of like the Online Preacher courses where you become ordained from someone thousands of miles away? Lol..

    On a serious note: Congrats!

  • Greasemonkey:

    Contact the TWRA about the classes. Once you take it on-line, you still have to go to a class once & a live shoot. Those have to be scheduled. I believe the instructor told me they try to schedule classes about 4 times a year. As I said, the course taught in a classroom is better. It also takes up 5 nights.
