In Idaho? Last night we were told it only had to be a formal class...nothing else. Our class was (on paper) a 4 hour formal class. The instructor told us that all we had to do after the class was go get finger printed...bla bla bla...to get the permit.Yeah, it's required here, too. 8 hour class and then shoot...have to get so many hits in the circle at certain range (don't remember what range, tho).

They also offer the Utah concealed permit, but you have to complete this course first.Concealed Firearms Course CTS-200
This class is a professional level course which meets the instructional requirements to obtain an Idaho concealed carry permit.
This course is developed around the State of Idaho concealed firearms carry instructional requirements with input from various law enforcement offices.
What you will learn
This course covers the Idaho Concealed Weapons Law; federal, state, and local restrictions; the Idaho law concerning the use of deadly force; firearm maintenance and safe storage, equipment and ammunition selection, proper loading, unloading and shooting techniques, and concludes with a written examination.
The fired proficiency portion of this course is a 60 round, 300 point modified PPC Course designed to give the students practice and experience in drawing and firing at stationary targets under pressure. The course is fired at distances of: 3, 7, 15, and 25 yards.
These guys are BIG on training, training, training.
Cool. Thanks for the info! Until now, I was under the impression that the course was required. I still plan on taking more training courses in the future, though.I think that is just saying for that instructor to sign his name saying that you are proficient in firearms safety he must see you shoot.
