ive been looking at calguns for a long time and see all the bad posts about some guys doing ccw classes. i went to john taylors class in lincoln and thats the best thing i could have done. i was very surprised of everything that i learned and his knowledge. although i will continue to shoot and train as john suggested, he prepared me in many ways to ccw. id refer him to anybody. and by the way, i finally got my permit last week!
