Great class today I learned so much! All those "grey" areas are not grey any longer. M. Baker
Hi Paul, just wanted to let you know about this. We had an application
and we sent the request to Riverview, as we always do. We hadn't heard
anything from them and ended up sending three requests. Finally, last
week we received the response. We sent the first request in December. I
think this is just not acceptable, but I don't know how to address it.
Keep up the good work! Chief Rob Federico

YOU for presenting this course. It was interesting and informative – a
good beginning for those of us starting on the path to shooting. And
thank you for inviting Lisa. Sandra S.
a very good NRA - Personal Protection in the Home course today. A lot
of eye opening stuff. To my friends who teach or train in self defense -
armed or unarmed, I highly suggest you get some instruction from a
lawyer familiar with your jurisdiction on use of force. I have
personally waded through the muck that constitutes the statutes here,
but having a lawyer who understands it give you a walk through can give
you a lot to consider.
I took this Course in December. I have to agree, well worth your time and money. I suggest that people take this training.
Took the class yesterday at
Cabelas. Great class, learned a lot from Paul. Thank you Paul for
teaching the class and all the information provided!
Hi Paul! Thanks for keeping
me updated on activity related to CWP issues. I can say that the police
can get a background response within an hour or less in most cases. The
real hold up seems to come when we have to send a request to "at least
two" mental health institutions to find out if the applicant has been
involuntarily committed to their facility. This sometimes takes up to
six weeks. Once we get a response from them, the permit is issued
immediately. Dorothea Dix seems to take the longest to get a response.
Personally, I think this requirement is ridiculous and does nothing to
ensure the applicant is mentally stable. If you think about all the ways
this doesn't work you would agree. First of all, the person could be
committed in any other institution other than the two that are contacted
and still be an "qualified" applicant. This includes a person who may
have recently moved to Maine from another state. And, I think it's
foolish that a person could "voluntarily" commit themselves an unlimited
number of times for a wide range of mental health issues and still be
considered a "qualified" applicant. If some of these issues were
resolved I think some who question the process, myself included, would
feel a lot more comfortable signing their name to the CWP. By the way,
the applicants that come here with your CWP card give me a lot more
confidence that they are qualified to carry than those that don't. Keep
up the good work!
