Lately I’ve been hearing from people who’ve decided against attending training courses because of the cost of ammunition. If I may, I think that this is a shortsighted attitude!
Yes, ammo prices are the highest they’ve ever been. Yes, the number of rounds necessary to complete a decent shooting class is a significantly higher expense than it used to be. It’s still worth it, and it’s a bargain that you should take advantage of.
If you plan to carry a handgun, or if you keep a shotgun for home defense, training – proper training – may make the difference between a successful outcome and a tragedy. Isn’t that worth the few extra dollars that the necessary ammunition is going to cost? I sure think it is!
By the time you add up travel, lodging, registration fees, meals, and incidentals, that little extra the ammo costs really isn’t a big deal. Spend the money – it’s important to you, and to your loved ones, that you not miss that class!
