Maybe I'm missing something here and I read it all. There is nothing saying you cannot get more training even now. But ya aint getting it for free.
Go get as much as you can handle. There is plenty out there to be had.
I think this bill is just worded wrong and could care less about it. I've been carrying for decades before I moved to TN. I carry now 99.25% of the time. I haven't really had any desire to go somewhere where I am not allowed to carry and could care less. In fact, haven't even ran across any.
It's pretty much a known fact that gun folks that are deep into this hobby could outshoot most leos.... But difference is they have to shoot under stress while we play with just targets.
LEO's jobs are just that. Most I know do not carry off duty because to them a gun is just a tool like a hammer is to a carpenter. They wear it all day and when they get home, everything gets dumped in their edc tray or wherever. And yea, quite a few suck at shooting.
We don't need this dumb bill., We need the proper wording of the recent constitutional carry just passed. That would probably resolve the bulk of the problem. If there was anything to worry about, that should be something to be concerned. At least we are getting trained or practicing in one way or another. The new no permit needed carry bs should concern everyone. I am not against it. But I know people will just go buy a gun, tote it and know jack about it.
A year or so, a kid I know just bout his first gun when he turned of age with the enhanced permit. Good on him. He couldn't hit the broad side of a barn at 20ft. (It was a Performance Shop S&W). I told him I'd take it and see if it needed to be adjusted. The gun was spot on. I broke it down and it was filthy. I told him take a course and learn to clean his weapons. He couldn't take it apart or figure out how. He had this tall guy there that kinda looked like Trace Adkins. He couldn't figure it out either and was looking to add to his collection. I don't own any S&W at that time and they freaked when I broke it down in seconds. Big guy said, 'you see that? he just did it with one hand'....
Point I'm trying to make here is it seems we are clamoring about it - (the proposed law), giving us some sort of leo advantage. It's bs, we don't need it. Someone is looking for votes. Lets get what needs fixing on the current laws and start voting out these rinos that do nothing but try make names for themselves.
