    I just attended this August..took my neighbor kid to HQ here in Harrisburg They ran a 2 day course..3 hrs on a Thursday night and then a 8hr on Saturday. No fee-just preregister for the course. Did a pretty good job keeping it interesting even for me (old fart).

    I've been having trouble getting to one of these, and me and father piratically gave up on it, but this sticky looks pretty helpful. After I show this to my father, maybe we can finally go to one of these safety courses.

    All H.T.E Class are free to attend. Some clubs charge for a lunch.

    Over 30 years ago, I took this class with my dad. I was 12 and dad said the only way I could get a .22 rifle was to take a safety class.

    We took the class at Plymouth Meeting Mall in a conf area in Strawbridges!!!! It was all class room work.

    Anyway, we took the test at the end. I'll never forget it. It was the first time in my LIFE I did better than dad! I got a 98% and he got 96%. I'm not sure who actually felt better, me or him.

    Thanks Dad.

    I took the course years ago but never got a license. I don't have my orange card anymore. Is there someone I can call that will have me on record, or wil I have to take it again?

    From what I heard, they never even ask.
