The only question I have is concerning the quote on education about ammunition. Never heard of that here before, otherwise it is a good article.
There is a section in the CFP class on ammuntion. From http://publicsafety.utah.gov/bci/docs/T ... ELINES.pdf:

III. AMMUNITION
A. Types of ammunition:
1. Center-fire and rim-fire
2. Ammunition most commonly used for personal protection
3. Proper ammunition for the applicant’s firearm, i.e. the difference between 9mm parabellum and 9mm Kurtz (.380 cal)
B. Components of ammunition:
1. Case
2. Primer
3. Propellant
4. Bullet
5. Wad (shotgun only)
C. Physics of handgun fire:
1. Firing pin strikes primer
2. Primer ignites propellant
3. Gasses expand and force bullet from case
4. Gasses force bullet down the barrel
5. Bullet exits barrel
D. Discuss how to inspect ammunition for imperfections
E. Discuss the potential problems that can occur with the use of reloaded ammunition
F. Dangerous range of ammunition:
1. Discuss the dangerous capabilities of handgun ammunition
2. Review safety rule # 4, be sure

I love how the reporter references the "Shell" Issue Law...

Hunter said the Shell Issue Law in Utah requires the state to issue a concealed weapons permit to everyone, but before they do that, they must go through a class that covers gun safety, education on ammunition, carrying guns and actual Utah laws regarding guns.
Nice.

Other than that, interesting read.

Thanks Utahcfp,

It's been over ten years since I took my ccw class so I may have forgotten about those items. It's just been a while. Most of the rest I readily remember. I just thought it interesting that it was mentioned at all in the article. In fact, the overall content of the article was good.

Not a bad article at all. At lest one newspaper gets it.
