    Thanks.. I'd bet there's some On-Target customers in here in my area..

    If so I was the newbie with the Auburn sweat shirt drooling over XD's and Kimbers and holding pistols like it was a rattle-snake. hehehe

    Had my hands on a used 5" XD .45acp for $460+tax in pristine condition w/ all box, holsters, paperwork.. Gotta hole burning in my pocket but no cash in there.

    Welcome! Afraid the only places I know are in Garner and Creedmor. Good luck, it's a good permit to have!

    The guy that teaches the class for Personal Defense & Handgun over on Tryon is really good. Makes an 8 hour class go by pretty quick. I'd also check out the classes offered by the Wake County Firearm and Education Center. It's the range I use and the guys that work there seem top notch. I bet their instruction would be very good.

    I am going to stop by PDHSC tomorrow and register for the February class. I see they also have handgun rentals - might have to check that out for an hour or so too

    L8Models,
    I was there around noon-1pm - got checked out with their safety test and borrowed a Glock .45 to shoot. Am going to try to get into next weekends CCW class, but may have to wait until Feb.

    Missed one question on their safety quiz. The question was True/False: "Leave extra ammo and extra guns on the bench in the back of the room when shooting in your lane". I answered false - my Daddy always taught me not to leave ammo and guns unsecured. Their reasoning was that they dont want each lane to be cluttered so as to have a patron trip and cause injury or AD. I guess I get that, but if I leave a weapon and ammo on the back bench I am going to secure the case.

    My first time there, it was a great experience and I met a couple of real nice guys who were very helpful and answered my Newb questions without making me feel like an idiot (unlike a certain Apex store). Most definitely will patronize them again soon.

    I didn't make it out there yesterday. The weather was so bad around here I didn't want to deal with that plus the rain. Good luck with your ccw!
