Anyone take the gun safety class required for regulated firearm purchases? Is there much difference between the classes offered by police/sheriff departments and private organizations?

I took it at a gunshow I went to with eshell, was like $7 and basically just watching a video, and you get a little card you put in your wallet. Not much to it, basically a video on weapons safety.

I don't consider the video to be a 'real' gun safety class - but it for those w/o DD214s it fufils the law's requirement.

If you just want to fufil the requirement take it wherever it really doesn't matter.

If you really want to lean about firearms safety - seek out the NRA sponsored courses, they have ove 130 years of experience in the field.

The video is stupid, I saw the guy cross himself with the gun at least twice, and the legal part is basically ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZz.

10 minutes at a gun show or 8 hours(I have heard) at the sheriff's office.

A lot of the dealers show it in their stores.
I know Barts Sports World, Valley Guns, Scott's Gunsmithing and Ottos Police Supply have it.
The 15 minute version that allows you to purchse.


Like Forrest stated, it is good for someone new to take the NRA course.
