This Isn’t Your Cheapo Gun Show Class

What would you expect from a $5 haircut? Not much?

Then why would you skimp on training that could save your life, your loved ones’ lives, and your family’s future just to save a few bucks?

Our concealed weapons permit class is the most in-depth and hands-on concealed carry class taught anywhere in Florida.

Don’t settle for the quick in-and-out classes just because they’re cheap. There are some things in life we just shouldn’t cut corners on – and our safety is one of them. How much is your safety worth?

Our class greatly exceeds the State of Florida’s training requirements for your concealed weapon and firearm license.
