    Ours is an 8 hour class with a little range time. Hardest part was sitting there for that length of time.

    They say 60-90 days here but I had mine in about ~45
    ends up costing about 110.00 total for the class and app fees if I recall - worth it by all means though :)

    You're lucky. Charlotte nc takes up to 120 days. I'm on day 44. It feels like an eternity.

    Hardest part for me was also sitting for so long, my butt was sore for the next few days. Shooting was the easiest and funniest. I had the smallest groups out of the class.

    Part of the class they brought out a ton of different pistols. It was cool to see and handle them, but it would have been way cooler to shoot them.

    Ours is pretty easy here. Constitutional carry, basically Don’t be on probation. There is a CCL available though if you want it to be honored with other states, think that one might be a class though.

    Gonna be building a 300 BLK "pistol" as my next AR, my optimus should be approved in december and i can run it on a 8" barrel with a 3 lug mount, the length would be shorter than a 16" barrel by a decent amount, 8" barrel + 6.6" suppressor= just under 15".

    Are there barrels at 7-7.5" for 300 BLK? I kind of want an even more compact length.

    I can't say for sure on uppers as I generally buy them as a complete - but I've had pretty good results with the parts I've gotten from PSA
    Naturally - you can go somewhere else and get better quality and spend a whole lot more - the skies the limit
