Hubby and I took the CHL class today. We spent 9 hours in the classroom learning the applicable laws and rules that go with having a CHL. Then there was the hour on the range doing the shooting qualification. I was really nervous about the range portion, but I scored really well (242 out of a possible 250). Hubby did better, he scored 243 and probably would have scored 248, but he didn't get a chance to fire one round.
We both aced the written exam, so now we just have to complete the second portion which is the state application, fingerprinting and background portion.
If you are looking for a good CHL instructor, Calvin from Red's is great. He is a tough SOB on the range (all for everyones safety), but he makes the classroom portion easy to learn.
