Okay that is what i figured. On the website it does not say to bring mags, and X number of rounds like the other classes.

I have a freind that got her CCW several years ago and decided to finally start carring because they fired a guy at her work and he thinks she got him fired.  I have taken her to the range a few times. So she has shot some but no holster work that i know of.  She has a 357 revolver she wants to carry. I recommended she take a class to get familar with holster work, reloading etc. Is that course an apropriate course for her level of skill?
