Taking CCW Class in Florida

Hey Guys Im taking the CCW at East Orange Shooting Sports in Orlando, Anyone have any expierence with the class there. Any pointers about what to expect. The gun store attandant said there is a qualification process which I know I will pass, but can you enlighten me on how accurate you have to be. I have read that you only have to fire one shot and not even hit the target to pass is this true? Any help would be great. Also if anyone knows what type of qualification target they use if its the standard B-27 silhouette. And from how may feet away is the qualification shots, and are there multiple distance qualification shots? Any help would be great thanks Guys.

Though I live in PA I took this course as a non resident just 3 weeks ago.
The live fire excercise is more about safety than shooting skills.

We shot at an indoor range at approxinately 15-20 feet.
Couple of shots (3-5) with instructor behind us - looking to see if we handled the weapon properly and could at least get the shots on the paper.

I brought my own weapon but they were also provided to those that didn't have their own. If you take your own, understand that no "hot" weapons are allowed in the classroom environment - it must be unloaded/cased until you are at firing position on the range.

Just sent my application in so don't know how long it will be yet.

Wow! All I fired was six rounds out of my S&W M66 I think some of the people never even hit the target. It took me about 10 weeks to get my permit just make sure you fingerprints are clear and a good picture of the correct size. I had to have my fingerprints redone the were so bad had to have them computer enhanced
