    There's an outfit in Austin (link below) that will come to San Antonio if we can get a minimum of 10 people ($100/person) for the course. I *believe* we could do the course on a Saturday (I will verify this with them).

    So, is anyone interested in doing this? I am since I am new to the state (moved here last month) and a Texas permit takes a six-month residency before one can apply. Both of the FL and AZ permits are also recognized in many more states the the TX permit.

    Let me know if you're interested and I will get the ball rolling.

    Heck no, the price of $100 is outrageous.

    They, the website you link to, offer their courses for half that online, and you don't have to go to a class. You can get the Texas CHL class (which is also good for those states education requirements) for less if you just want to sit in a class!! Plus since the hurdles are so low, most already qualify and don't need any supplemental classes. A hunter safety course even applies as good enough. DD214 with an honorable discharge, etc.

    Have you looked into what those two licenses require on the states official websites, you know the ones not one trying to sell you something???

    I think that when they say "attend" class, that they mean you actually need to be there in person. I know people who have these permits and there was a requirement for "in person" attendance, not just via the Internet.

    What he's saying is that any NRA safety course, the Texas Hunter Safety Course, etc all meet the Arizona requirement for training.

    Did you visit the AZ DPS website to see the requirements for yourself?

    From the website Arizona Revised Statutes - Arizona Department of Public Safety

    1. Completion of any firearms safety or training course or class that is available to the general public, that is offered by a law enforcement agency, a junior college, a college or a private or public institution, academy, organization or firearms training school and that is approved by the department of public safety or that uses instructors who are certified by the national rifle association.
    2. Completion of any hunter education or hunter safety course approved by the Arizona game and fish department or a similar agency of another state.
    3. Completion of any national rifle association firearms safety or training course.
    4. Completion of any law enforcement firearms safety or training course or class that is offered for security guards, investigators, special deputies or other divisions or subdivisions of law enforcement or security enforcement and that is approved by the department of public safety.
