    Hey guys, I'm working on getting my paperwork in to the state of Kansas to teach our state CCH course. Since I live on the state line, I'd like to be able to teach Oklahoma courses, as well, but I cannot find anywhere that it states whether I am required to be an Oklahoma resident or not. Kansas does not have the residency requirement, can anyone tell me if I am/would be able to get certified to teach Oklahoma's course or not?

    Thanks in advance.

    Okay, I did not read ALL of this, but it says at the end of paragraph B that you must meet the qualifications to be issued a handgun license...
    https://www.oscn.net/applications/oscn/DeliverDocument.asp?citeid=440213

    This one says you must be a resident to qualify for a handgun license...
    https://www.oscn.net/applications/oscn/DeliverDocument.asp?CiteID=69792

    This page describing the application process says you need a state issued ID...
    https://osbi.ok.gov/handgun-licensing/application-instructions/initial-applicants

    So I'm going to say you probably have to be a resident of Oklahoma... but I've been wrong before.

    I'd probably call OSBI and ask.

    I would say it isn't worth getting now. We haven't done a class in about two years. I know 4 other instructors that agreed there isn't a demand for the class anymore.

    Since I am not an instructor I don't have first hand experience but one of our local instructors has continued to book classes. There seem to be people still seeking training.

    Your location most likely makes a difference on the demand for the class.

    I'm still getting demand for classes but I live 4 miles from the OK/TX border.
