Concealed Carry Class

Learn the Fundamentals of Carrying a Concealed Firearm

Now Is The Time

Our Concealed Carry Course is the most in depth and hands on concealed carry class taught anywhere in the United States.

There’s no better time to learn how to protect yourself than now. Remember, when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

This course exceeds the State of Florida’s training requirements for your concealed carry license.

How is this course different than the cheap classes offered by the shop down the road?

Glad you asked.

It’s All in the Quality

We’re not here to waste your time.

So here’s the bottom line.

If all you care about is a certificate with your name on it, go ahead and call up your local pawn shop and see when their next class is.

It’s not economically feasible to run such cheap classes without shoving as many people into the class as possible. The more students, the less time the instructor will have to spend with you.

And we’re not about that.

We are all about quality over quantity.

So if you want top notch firearms training, and if you want to learn all about how firearms work, how to safely handle firearms, and how to effectively shoot firearms, we’d love to have you on board.
