I don't recognize any of those questions. Do instructors get to make up their own tests?

the shooting is so easy. i had three raggedy holes in my paper until the very end, i had a flier. so i did the little scene from super troopers with my brother where they are at the range and one of says, 'what about that little guy, oh that little guy, i wouldn't worry about that little guy.

the written part is a snap, i was getting really nervous when he was handing out the tests and being very serious. i didn't miss one and felt silly for being nervous. we graded each others test. we were supposed to switch with whoever we were sitting with but since i was with my brother i switched with another table, ethics ya know! my brother only missed one, and it was worded very funny. nobody failed. then as we were grading the tests we went over the answers to reinforce why they were correct. guy was a good instructor. and being a SWAT/FIREARMS instructor, had some GREEEAAAT stories. :thumbs2: for the instructor!!!

The written test was easy. I passed with a 98% and the question I got wrong was only because I misread it.
The range test was just as easy. Even if you havent shot before you should be in good condition. Both of the guys on the line next to me must have been friends taking the test together. Neither of then knew how to lock their slide back or decock their pistol. They both passed

I just took the course yesterday. It was a breeze. I'm actually quite surprised how easy it is. I guess they figure if you are a stand-up citizen who is willing to go through the motions and submit to a background check and send them money then that is good enough for them. Remember, thugs and criminals don't go through the course. If they are capable of carrying a weapon I figured the state is willing to make it a little easier on the good citizen to obtain the license to even the odds a little.
