I now have my permit and I am looking for something to continue what my 8 hour CCW course started. Specifically the responsibility and tactics of conceal carry and home defense. I have found a couple books in the library but aside from one additional course offered for another $150 at the range I took the CCW course, I have'nt found squat. In this age of everything available on the internet from apple pie recipes to Elvis’s shoe size, I would think a free course on handgun responsibility and the legal ramifications of self defense via pistol ought to be available somewhere if one knows where to look. Hickock45 is a great show-n-tell resource on handguns but I haven’t found any courses per se. The MSTT article by Massad Ayoob is an example of what I am looking for. Maybe I just haven’t gone deep enough following that thread. I did find a few non-free CCW classes online, one takes 45 minutes, starting @ $25. I’m sure that one is very thorough.
Can anyone point me in the right direction here? IMHO there is more to carrying a concealed handgun than just the permission of the local Sherriff. I went through more than 8 hours of drivers ed in high school before I got behind the wheel of my dad's 62 Pontiac.
