We also found a message board thread that read: "Around here; average cost is $40.00. The "shortest" class I've seen (the wife took it) was 90 minutes."
Unfortunately, we could not discern where "around here" was located. Not to fret, though. Through due diligent research, the Oracle came across another training program that appears to be cost and time effective, and run by highly respected firearms professionals.

As a final note, you don't even need one of those annoying CWP thingies if you are accompanied by a hunting dog or if you are carrying a tent or fishing pole. In Florida, land of the certifiably insane, you can open carry if you are engaged in a hunting, camping, or fishing activity, and that includes going to or from said activity.
Isn't that just peachy?
