    Default Training Courses in NEPA

    I need to find one. I'm planning on applying for out of state permits for FL, and AZ, both of which require a training course. Does anyone know what classes I could take, and are in NEPA? I'd prefer something in my county, but I'm willing to drive a bit if I have to, to Luzerne, Wayne, Pike, or Monroe county.

    I don't have anything planned up that way, unfortunately. I would like to get back up to Pa soon though. I taught in Pittsburgh in April and had a blast.

    Just make sure that if you find a course for the Florida permit, that it includes live fire as is their requirement. There's a number of folks running around offering training for Florida and the course does not have live fire.

    Also, have you considered getting a Utah permit instead of, or in addition to Fl and Az?

    That's on the list as well. I'm going to try to get as many as possible.

    Good to hear.

    We're always scouting locations for classes so if you'd like a Utah class in your area and perhaps know a few folks who'd be interested, let me know.

    If you want to take a weekend trip, I have a Utah class scheduled in Northern Va. in June.

    i'd like to get a few my self but what about the reciprocity agreements?

    What's it cost for these courses because depending on how long they are i'd be willing to do a few in one day.

    IIRC Florida accepts any training course, unlike the boring as shit Utah course which has to be there material.

    My suggestion, FWIW, is take a QUALITY training course from a reputable instructor and get some good training in, and as a side bonus apply for that FL permit. Im not sure about out East, but here in Pittsburgh we have a TigerSwan 2-day pistol in August, Randy Cain in September as well as a Jason Falla pistol/carbine . All GREAT choices, and if someone takes my advice, youd be glad you did.

    Looks like somewhere out east though you have a VSM.

    I dont know that guy specifiacally, but I think that hits your FL requirement. We have Stony Smith here at PMSC this weekend for a VSM pistol, but thats been all sold out.

    Our Utah course is 6 hours and the cost is $85.
