    Junglerot's wife, Amy, teaches classes. Dunno her rate.

    I'm trying to envision lanesplitting with my Vstrom and panniers and it's not computing. :lol3

    The most fun ever had on a bike was lanesplitting in Seattle on a 1150RT. No panniers but it was pretty wide compared to my leetle zx-6.

    Pretty standard charge for the class in many states and in most you either bring your own piece or get charged for renting one from the instructor. The permit charge varies more and practice is up to the student. Thinking about carrying while lane splitting?

    This is the price not including the shooting part. Just class time. I don't know, maybe not looking hard enough for the right deals plus its a sellers market out there given the hysteria around Guns right now.

    A hundred bucks is really pretty good. Mine was $150 about a year ago.

    $85 for the class and $100 to the state her in Enchantment. Seems reasonable. Ask about situational awarness.

    $34.99 online.

    I am by no means advocating that this is a good thing mind you, just showing that there are alternatives. This is where I took mine and the one I would endorse;

    I purchased a 'Sweet Jack' deal for a basic pistol and concealed carry class through Arapahoe Arms that includes range time. It's a 10 hour course that normally costs $200 and I paid $100. Turns out I can't make either of the dates (1/26 or 2/23) so if you want it, let me know. You can paypal me the $ and I'll email you the coupon with the promo code.

    My suggestion is to not cheap out on the class. Take something worth taking, not a bargain-deal, couple-of-hour gig.

    Did mine at Profire in Thornton. Two-day deal, a little over $200 ... It was a good class, covered CO/UT and did the photos/paperwork for CO/UT/FBI. Included range time on Sunday. It covered the important points and some of the goofy laws that you should probably be aware of.

    I have taken other advanced courses in other states. I just need to go over the laws here in Colorado.

    That is exactly what the online course should be used for.

    Well, that was a good football game, sorry to see such a great season end like that.

    I guess that it's better than the Pat's 18 - 1.
