    I think it's only a true conflict for those that want to make it a conflict. I don't like the required training and licensing but it's not unreasonable for a group that wants to educate the public to take that position. It's not a big deal to me, really.

    Problem is that no one is willing to do it for free, they all want money including the orgs
    Free? Why do so many people expect stuff for free these days? Expecting others to donate their time and money so they can freeload is pretty lame. If you can't afford the course, go get a job and make some money, because the gun stores aren't giving out guns and ammo for free either.

    Maybe because it's done in a classroom rather than someones basement? When C-68 came into law I decided to take the course even though I could have challenged it. I already owned firearms. It was $150 IIRC. That was 20 years ago. $220 doesn't seem so bad in that context. But why not charge what the market will bear or the market dictates? Silvercore charges $225. Doesn't matter if you are getting training on driving, basket weaving or firearms, people pay for courses.

    Teach it in the public schools, make it part of the mandatory curriculum. Problem solved. Except for the gangbangers who don't go to school.

    (I know, I'm dreamin' like this will ever happen)

    And now, back to the infighting!

    If it's $90 and it's full of students, it must not be too much.

    He does train the RCMP. Maybe he's better than most.

    I really don't get what the big deal is over his price.

    Don't want to pay $90, don't go.

    This has gone on longer than the original rant by Loberg.
