The Concealed Carry Permit Class is an intense four-hour comprehensive review of handgun safety and concealed carry law. This class is designed for all levels of shooters (Beginners or individuals who have never shot before should talk with us about supplemental live fire training, after the class.) We teach this class because we recognize that many of our students come into class with a great deal of previous firearms experience. Some class providers will lump everyone together and ignore the previous experience of their students. This is not our approach. Our class includes a discussion on the laws for concealed carry and the use of deadly force. This class stresses the responsibilities of the concealed carry permit holder, pistol technique, and different methods of carrying. Completion of this class will give the student a completion certificate necessary when applying for a concealed carry permit. New shooters are welcome to attend but are encouraged to seek live-fire training and/or practice with an instructor or experienced family member. View Class Schedule and Reserve your class now. Our concealed carry permit class meets all Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Arizona, and Florida concealed handgun permit training requirements.
The NRA Basic Pistol course is a ten-hour class. This is a class for people who want or need live-fire training.

Private range instruction is a good supplement to the Basic Concealed Handgun Class. Private instruction means one-on-one instruction focusing on firearm safety and shooting training. There is no waiting in line for your turn to shoot. Private range instruction is done in a fun, comfortable, and supportive environment. Instruction is encouraging and designed to diagnose and correct shooting errors while emphasizing safety. We will not yell at you. WE ARE NOT DRILL INSTRUCTORS. Instruction will vary on the shooter’s experience level. We teach basic, intermediate, and advanced techniques. Tactical pistol training is available when requested. Our students have included military, police and civilians, and first-time shooters. Our personalized shooting instructors in Colorado Springs are dedicated to helping students develop both good firearm safety knowledge as well as assisting with shooting technique and accuracy.
Private Instruction is conducted at the Cheyenne Mountain Shooting Complex in Colorado Springs, by appointment only. Please call us for rates and to schedule your time.
We offer firearms safety training for students who have been court-ordered to attend a Firearms Safety Training class. This may include persons who have to plead or have been found guilty of minor firearms-related offenses.
We have worked with several Courts/Probation Departments to provide this service, it gives them an alternative to just penalties for low-level firearms accidents or the mishandling of firearms. We feel that it educates the firearms owner instead.
When you register for our course you will be treated just like any other customer that is wanting to take a handgun safety class. At the end of the class, you will be given a Certificate of Completion that you can take back to the court to prove attendance in the class.
