Apparently I've offended a few of you. I didn't intend to open such a can of worms. And again, I'VE GOT NOTHING AGAINST CLASSES. I just don't feel they are a requirement for a shooter that already knows how to safely handle a firearm.

How is it any more lethal than any other firearm you've handled in your 50 years experience?
Would you treat it any differently than a .22lr?
I hope you enjoy your class and get a lot out of it.
