I belive that whatever training you are trying to use for the exemption it has to have been within the last 2 years or they won't accept it.

Yep, I saw the 2 year limitation. Just wondering if something like NRA RSO course would suffice or if there needed to be a live-fire component.

Iíve also never heard of them taking anything aside from the MD W&C training. Tough to find 16+ hours of training, and it is still at their discretion. I threw a lot at them initially which was refused, but in the end it was easier to just spend some time with Moe at MSAR and enjoy some extra range time.

Even then you still need the DC Law specific class.

My timeline for success:

I took the classroom portion of a course over a weekend in mid July and did the range training portion in mid August. I could have started the application before the range training portion but just wanted to keep things simple. My appointment when I called in August was scheduled on September 15th to start the process. I called to check on the status December 15th and it was "in the final approval phases." I received my CCW in the mail on 1/2 and it's dated 12/31.

CCW in DC was EZ

1. Went online, found an instructor
2. Took two-day class and two-hour range ($225 total)
3. Obtained my CCW at end of range session

It couldn't have been easier.

Bull. I monitor the prices on all of them. No one in that price range provides range fees. Who was your instructor?

Btw when you include average lost earnings for those three days in getting a ccw, costs are more like $500.

I know. we are getting flooded with these troll accounts, probably the same one guy. clearly does NOT know the process and is implying it is cheap and easy and absurdly fast. My guess is they don.t have an CCW.

I picked premium instructor for my wife and kid. But i have been shooting a very long time and also know DC laws very very well so I have shopped by price for myself for courses and renewals.

You are also going to spend $75 on ammo. And $25 range fee. Unless you are slingingf ries at McDonalds, your mandated time is massively costly: if you make $75k a yearr you are also going to spend, at a minimum $870 of your own time for the three days (two days of course, 0.4 day of range 0.6 day of paperwork. Then there is the $75.

For the first two years of your CCW the MINIUM mandated license cost for a middle income person is $1,300. That is $850 per year. That is not gun or holsters etc, just license costs. My Virginial license cost me $38 a year including time spent doing paperwork.

And was given his ccw card at end of range session? What a LIAR.

I'm wondering if he's confusing the certificate of completion with a CCW. That's not a mistake I'd want to make!
