    Anywhere in or close to Kilkenny that I can do the training certificate course to apply for my first license?

    Closest is Harbour House in Athy

    The nargc do an online one every second Tuesday I'm nearly sure. Check the events section on their website

    I agree with Clive.

    Personally and nothing against Nargc but I would be very wary of any online training courses for most anything and especially firearms training.

    As an ex-military small arms instructor/coach and ex OSH trainer I wouldn’t dream of certifying someone online, (that’s a first class ticket to hell….), end of day nothing beats a hands on/eyes on course under supervision of competent trained personnel.

    Just my tuppence worth.

    Point taken but the reason I said the online course is that I have heard of lads going into other people for the course and leaving 5 minutes later with their cert

    Well not at Harbour House, you'll get a good introduction and shown everything you'd need for your cert and a great shakedown of all you'd want to know.

    I was in with him last weekend, sound man and get to do a bit of shooting on the virtual reality screen afterwards.

    Highly recommended.
