I see the miscommunication. I stated the FFL dealer would be required to make the class available as part of the cost of the weapon... not that it would be a requirement of purchase.
The cost of the class, to the FFL, would likely be offset by the purchases of peripherals like safes, holsters, snap caps, defensive ammunition and the such.
