    Does anyone know of any cheap or free courses such as this that I can take around the metro ATL area or northwest GA area?

    The reason I want to do this is so that I can apply for a non-res permit from other states.

    I think I read on here awhile back about Bass ProShops doing this or the State of GA doing this for Hunter safety courses.

    Thanks.

    Funny this should come up today. I just taught a "State Sponsored" Hunters Education course last night. The courses are free of charge and can be located at the link Taler posted.

    Pannell's firearms in Woodstock has a hangdun safety course on Monday and Tuesday nights from 6PM to 8 PM. It's a two night course. The instructor is Leonard Vilchez. He's a certified instructor on the subject and I think he's a retired LEO. I took the course and enjoyed the instruction, the fundamentals, and improving some shooting errors I had. The cost is $80 which covers the whole thing, range time, glasses, hearing protection, targets, and all. http://www.pannellsfirearms.com

    My 10 year old son and I just took the Hunter Safety course offered at the Etowah Valley Sporting Clays Pavilion. This was a free class and taught by Joe Schuster.

    I highly recommend this class and the instructor. He was a great teacher, kept us both interested the whole time. The main reason I wanted to take this class was to get my son more involved in shooting and for general firearm safety. Joe is all about safety.


    The website for registration is www.gohuntgeorgia.com.

    Did I say that I recommend this class.

    USMC, I took a hunter safety course about 15 years ago. I have long since lost my card. Since I hear Florida will take these for proof of training for non-res I would like to get to get a replacement. Any advice?
    Thanks!

    If you took your course in Georgia it's as simple as going to thislinkand following the instructions.

    Or you could do a few years in the mlitary, send FL a copy of your discharge papers and be done with it. They meet the "gun-safety" requirements. Of course... it may take a few years to get them... :-k

    I'm sure you'll stay stateside for 4 years :^o

    :D

    Only 30 years old? You're but a spring chicken, Doc. There are some friendly guys in cool hats down in Columbus who can help you with the other concern. :D
