I have been a CCDW Instructor in KY for 16 yrs. , I don't know it all and I don't argue ( too old and hopefully too wise ). Just had a person tell me since he had pistol training in the military he was exempt from the CCDW class in Kentucky. If that is true ( I read the CCDW regs. on the KSP website), how will he know the KRS's for Kentucky, the rules and regulations? Seems that if this lack of training is true, the liability would be great for both the Commonwealth and the military person with a CCDW and no classroom training. Let me hear from those of you that are instructors with knowledge of this.

Couldn't he just read the KRSs regarding CCDW?
They're all online now.

Makes you wonder why we have a CCDW course. Just let them read it on line and then we watch them shoot, or better yet they video themselves shooting on an I-phone and send it in. Just thinking out loud, sorry couldn't resist. I have had high ranking law enforcement folks sit in on my classes and then tell me they learned a ton of information they previously thought they knew.

I suspect these new forms that documents military handgun training will cause confusion to CCDW folks in richmond.

Heck, I can't even verify if they're real or not.

What I tell military members is you could risk a longer wait time due to confusion of these new documents being submitted.

20 rounds takes much less time...plus, who doesn't want to shoot??

It's also worth knowing what the use of force laws are so if, god forbid, you get into a self defense situation you at least have some idea of what your legal obligations are.

So, if I understand this right, they don't have to take the CCDW course period? They just submit their papers to DOCJT, get there confirmation and then apply to their local sheriffs office.I emailed DOCJT, but have not received an answer.

Here is what the state police site says about it.  http://www.kentuckystatepolice.org/conceal.htm















Active and discharged service members that meet either of the following criteria are entitled to a training waiver:

    Applicants claiming a training waiver should submit with their application a Certificate of Military Police Training or a DD214 that shows military police training.


  2. Active or discharged service members in the United States Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, or Coast Guard, or a reserve component thereof, or of the Army National Guard or Air National Guard shall be deemed to have met the training requirement if these persons:

Just got this from DOCJT. Again, if all it takes is reading the frequently asked questions, then why even have a class. Sorry again, just had to say it.

"There is a new military exemption for the CCDW permit, you should have received a legal update in the mail a month or so ago that outlined the basics of the changes that were made in the most recent legislative session.  KSP will be handling all aspects of getting permits for the military folks.  The KSP website will have more detail and it is my understanding that there is a frequently asked question area that deals with this topic."

If I can be of any further assistance please let me know.
Thanks,
Brandi
