Course Catalog

We recommend at least an hour of basic shooting instruction before you take a Concealed Weapons Course so that you will be comfortable when you shoot 25 to 50 rounds on the range to qualify for your permit. Currently we are scheduling one CWP class per month.

Chris is also available at other times by appointment. Contact us to set an appointment or see our calendar to check for class dates. Coming to your church or facility is also an option.
