That was the biggest waste of time I’ve ever experienced on campus. We had four hours to get people fingerprinted and by the time we were supposed to leave, maybe 10% of the people in the class had gotten fingerprinted. This didn’t seem like an event interested in getting students concealed carry permits, but rather a four hour rambling session where the organizers get to promote their company and talk about different scenarios over and over again while awkwardly trying to be funny. I don’t have time to wait for the world’s slowest moving person to fingerprint 40 people. At… Read more »

A few comments and observations on your comments. 1. You said there were four hours to get everyone fingerprinted. Where did you come up with that timeframe? The length of the class has nothing to do with fingerprinting, that is entirely separate. Utah BCI states that the class syllabus should take the average instructor four hours to teach. 2. You stated that it appeared to be “…….a four hour rambling session where the organizers got to promote their company….”. So your saying they did not teach you the required course which consisted, in part; firearms safety, the makeup of BCI,… Read more »

1. I did the math: 9:30 to 1:30 is four hours. If there were any competence in the organizers there they would have known that it would take a long time to fingerprint so many people, and maybe they would have brought more people to fingerprint or they would have started fingerprinting people from the very beginning of the event. 2. Define “teach.” I was eager to learn early on in the event, but it wasn’t just me who believed that the event was poorly organized. The people who sat next to me had similar complaints, but obviously weren’t on… Read more »

As a further to your comment, this is the defining yes or no question; did they teach the required curriculum specified by BCI? Very simple question. Since you tossed your packet of information, which included a copy of the course, here’s the link to it.

If they taught what’s in here you may have a gripe with their style but that’s about it, nothing more that I can see. I’m anxious to see your reply.

If you want a simple answer, no. They did not teach everything in that packet. If you would like I can go point by point over what they didn’t cover in that packet. In fact, the PDF file you provided me wasn’t part of any material that was given to us at all. What was presented to can be summarized by: “We’re going to teach you about safe concealed carry, we’re going to show you some guns and their safe use, we’re going to promote Utah Gun Exchange, and we’re going to take your picture and get fingerprints.” If taking… Read more »

If they did not provide you with a copy of the course or teach you what was in it then I suggest you contact BCI and voice your concern. They take these issues very seriously.

I get emails that you responded, but when I come to the website I can’t see them here to directly reply, so I’m going to respond to this one. First off, THERE WAS NO CD. The info I threw away was a contract, a fingerprint card and an application. I also got a water bottle and a sticker and some ear plugs. I DIDN’T GET A CD. The assertion that the instructor has been audited and found to be in 100% compliance means nothing to me, especially coming from you. I don’t care how “in compliance” the instructor was, myself… Read more »

Okay Jason, I checked and you DID receive a copy of the class curriculum, the link to it was on the cd you threw away along with all the other info. I spoke with the Instructor and he’s very curious to know why you didn’t voice any concerns to him and he’d very much like to speak with you. I also discovered that over the decades that he’s been teaching this course he has been anonymously audited by BCI several times and found to be in 100% compliance EVERY SINGLE time! In short after speaking with the instructor I find… Read more »

@Vanns, The Utah Shooting Sports Council sure is putting in a lot of time and effort to scrutinize itself just to please one person. The sure went to a lot of work to help the Univ of Utah students, but they can’t please everybody all the time. I don’t believe that if it were I, that I would do all that soul searching. They must be a great group of people.

@Jason, based upon what you write, it seems like a lot of people were working hard so that the students at the Univ of Utah could have something for free. That is pretty rare, nowadays. If you had something else scheduled that day that made you impatient, then that is not their fault. As a full time engineering student with lots of homework, whose time is valuable, maybe you had too much on your plate. Maybe the time that you spend here complaining would be better spent on homework, if what all that you wrote is true.

Well, JB, you could not possibly be the problem, so these people that got together to serve their community must be incompetent.

What I tried to explain to you the first time, in part, was that fingerprinting is completely separate from the syllabus 4 hour part of the class. However long the fingerprinting takes it is NOT part of the class.

1. If the young lady wishes to Caryn then that weapon is to large for her corps frame, But is she still wishes this weapon, then I would suggest a But up rear holste! Twice as quick to draw,and if you have an SF BG open carry, holster, it would be a great deal more comfortable even when sitting for long period#. Take care young lady, and you should not carry a 17 weight up, you move up and down to quickly, you will loose it. Take care young ladies! WDW

First and foremost, It’s a STAGED photo pic. Geez, I’ve never seen so many people pick so many things apart for no reason at all. Next, it appears to be a passive resistance, trigger guard lock-in holster which is designed to not shake loose while running and be very difficult for someone to snatch. Finally, the holster position is exactly where it should be for the fastest draw, right about at the seam line of her pants. Good grief, find something important to find fault with.

Utah has never had a mass shooting at a school and allowing students and teachers to carry is one of the main reasons.
