Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
How old do I have to be?
How long is my firearm license valid?
The Florida Concealed Weapon and Firearm License is valid for 7 years. Be sure to renew your permit prior to the expiration date in order to avoid having to pay a late fee.
What do I need to bring to class?
Please be sure to bring your state-issued ID or driver’s license, wrap around eye protection (safety glasses), and hearing protection (ear muffs or ear plugs). Also bring your pistol if you have one, along with 50 rounds (1 box) of factory loaded ammunition. You may also borrow our equipment instead, for an additional $10, just select the appropriate option at the time of registration.
Please be sure to wear full coverage clothing and shoes (no low cut shirts, tank tops, flip flops or sandals will be allowed on the range). The range is located a little off the beaten path, so please bring any food (lunch and snacks) and drinks you will want. Since this is Florida, and the weather is often unpredictable, you may also want to bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and/or a raincoat.
Do you accept credit cards?
Yes, we accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover but we do charge a $3.00 convenience fee per transaction.
What is the refund policy?
Cancellations made with at least 14 days advanced notice are eligible for a full refund, or full credit towards a future class. Cancellations made with less than 14 days advanced notice are only eligible for credit towards a future class.
Failure to attend a scheduled class (without notice) will result in forfeiture of the class tuition.
Once a certificate has been issued we are unable to issue any refunds or credits.
Is there a range fee?
Yes. We do not include the range fee in our course tuition for a couple reasons. First, we don’t always use the same range and since the fees vary from range to range we don’t factor them into our fees. Another (possibly more important) reason is that some of the ranges we utilize offer prepaid memberships. If we included a range fee in our class costs, those students with a membership would essentially be paying twice: once for their membership and then a second time to shoot with us.
