which ever county you live in, give the school/range offering the course a call
the course that I took 12 years ago (in Shelby Co.) consisted of 50 rds. from distances beginning at 1 yd., to 25+ yds.
Just took the TN course two weeks ago.
The distances were 3, 7, and 15 yards. 16 rounds at each but it was split up a bit so that the 3 yard was 50% slow fire, and then you finished the 7 and 15 again at the end it was 3 yards rapid fire. All had to be in the X, 10, 9, 8 rings on a B-27 target.
Although I don't necessarily agree, you can qualify with a .22.
The final two rounds from a box of 50 were allowed as head shots at 3 yards and did not count for the pass/fail.
If I recall you had to keep 80% in those rings as aforementioned. All 27 persons in our class passed.
In general they are pretty minimal ...which is fine actually as most SD shootings take place a "bad breath range" where tack-driving accuracy doesn't really enter into the equation.
It's actually more of a "can they handle the gun without shooting themselves or anyone else by accident" test as anything else. If you can do that, don't sweat it.
