*** If you are a veteran, the second class is all that is required by law, as you have an exemption for the first class, which covers basic firearms safety, gun handling and marksmanship.  However, it is recommended that all take the first class as a refresher.

You do NOT need a gun or a FOID card to take this class.  You can use one of our guns and the FOID card can be applied for along with your Concealed Carry License! (If you need to use a gun, there is a $5 fee for the ammunition)

There is a $10 RANGE FEE the SECOND CLASS, to be paid the day of that class, along with the balance of $50 (after paying the $25 Deposit).

8 and 16 hour Classes for Initial Licensing: 

If you have no prior training credits, you will need the full 16 hours – two eight-hour classes – which may be taken out of sequence.  

 If you have some credits, you will need at least the “second 8 hours” of training, and perhaps 4 hours in addition.  Not sure?  Click here: Training Credit and watch the video.

The first 8 hour course will also qualify you for non-resident permits from Florida and Arizona, if you choose to apply for them!
