[QUOTE=Flyer69;100802]Was looking through school websites to find a training opportunity to take a class while I have some downtime in March.
Found this course being offered at Maine Maritime,
Course dates are March 18-21.
Course needs a 6 student minimum to run, so far there is only one student signed up.
P.S. Mikey and John, hope it is ok to post this here? If not, delete.[/QUOTE]
Well, I’m not Mikey, I’m not John, but I am in complete favor for training on the safe use and care of guns, whether it be small arms, rifles, shotguns, you name it. Perhaps I’m a little overboard on this, I also believe when you own a gun you should know how to clean it, disassemble it, put it back together, oh, and how to shoot straight (always know WHERE you are shooting, there’s a motto “Know Your Target”). In addition, treat them like you would treat a valuable tool, keep them clean and in a safe place. If there is a safe on your gun, use it. The only time you remove the safe is when you are ready to shoot. When done shooting, put the safe back on. It’s sad but every year someone trips while walking through the woods and WHAM. You do not want THAT to happen.
Yes, I’m all for such training.
