Some people think their way is the only way.

I have to teach people to get rid of their bad habits they learned from those types in my teaching.  Kinda like when I taught Hunter Ed and Basic Marksmanship, too many had been taught by Uncle Bubba before we got them. ::)

Or worse, thought it would be funny to give a 75 pound kid a 20 gauge over under with 3 inch magnum shells to shoot for their first time. I had to fail a kid because he was shaking so bad witrh even a .22 that he couldn't hold the gun without it pointing all over the place.

That's about how long I taught the hunter safety courses.

I have four children and better-half that need to take hunter safety. The oldest two took it when I did to get my CCW license five years ago.

Should be a couple classes going on around this time of year, we were always full right before hunting season started.

In MT, you have to show proof of hands-on firearm safety training. Hunter's Ed is the easiest way for most people here to satisfy that requirement.

I'm working tonight until 3am. So that's fun.  Beyond that, my day has been anticlimactic.

I have never taken a hunter safety course here. The CCW class in MO is 8 hours, half classroom and half range.

Drive by a police station slowly and they toss the CCW in ...here ? ;)

actually on paper much like PEs State ,  when I took it 4 hours class & range time.

 but if you have had prior Military or police service or have completed HS then it is shortened.

when planets align...do the deal !

 There is no State requirement to have any training. Some counties require some kind of firearms safety training others just suggest you get some training.prior military service is accepted as training for those counties that require it.

But changing it to Insidious People Day accomplishes the same thing.

Afternoon all.

45 and sunny in Billings today.

Worked late last night.  Near the end started feeling poorly. Woke up this morning for class with a sore throat, headache and low fever. I went back to bed.
