Agreed about the quals, important stuff is in the classroom. Relatively certain I and most instructors could qualify blindfolded. I know some excellent instructors in the D/FW area as well. PM if you need input. And no, I'm not an instructor, just know a half-dozen and help with quals on occasion.
If you'll NEVER carry a semi-auto or drive a vehicle where one may possibly reside the restricted revolver permit may work for you.
