Recently I talked about the 13 Skills challenge set out by Jack Spirko on The Survival Podcast. One of the Skills I set for myself was to learn about firearms. Well today I took a step toward completing that goal by taking a gun class with my husband.

He is more familiar with guns than I am but his dad never taught him how to clean a gun. He also just wanted to increase his basic knowledge. I came across a guy through our local survivalist store that teaches conceal carry classes, private instruction etc. He was kind enough to do a class with just me and my husband for about 2 1/2 hours. Overall I have to say it was really helpful. We went over gun safety and how to clean the guns as well as some other tidbits of information. Our next goal is to get our gun permits so that we can carry handguns. Oklahoma is now an open carry state so it's no longer called a conceal carry permit.

Now I just need to get to work on all of the other skills I've set for myself!
