4. Sounds very reasonable.................
I just don't think that most concealed carry permits are applied for by people who take these 10 items that seriously. I'm a Grandmaster in a style of Wing Chun Kung Fu and as such I know MANY ways to do serious to deadly damage to the human body. I've also been training for 30 years and EVERY week for those 30 years I've been talked to or thought about the APPROPRIATENESS of using deadly force. It's ingrained after all that time. I don't think a four hour gun course, 3 of which is taken up by actually USING the gun for target shooting is enough for most people.

Even after all of my training in the appropriateness of deadly force, I would still feel uncomfortable IF I had to make that decision. I just don't think a brief course is enough.
