CCW Class Frequently Asked Questions

Need some more information before signing up for your CCW class? Already enrolled but not sure what to expect? Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get from our students.
Yes. Our CCW classes meet Colorado’s requirement for firearms training to apply for your permit.
You do not need to bring your firearm to class. We recommend a notebook, a pen, water, and a snack. This is a classroom-type environment, and there will not be live fire.

No. You will not have any range time for your class. We recommend training with your firearm at Cheyenne Mountain Shooting Complex.

Our classes cost only $79! For more information on what you’ll learn, visit our CCW classes to read more.

CCW classes at Colorado Handgun Safety are four hours long. You’ll learn a ton of fantastic information from an engaging instructor who will make your class fun and fast.

Your CCW training is good for 10 years. That means if you’re not ready to get your permit now, you have quite a bit of time to decide when it’s a good time.

After you pass your CCW class, you’ll receive a certificate of completion. This certificate will show as proof that you attended a firearms safety class when you go to apply for your permit.

You’ll apply with your county’s sheriff’s office by submitting an application either online or in person. 

The cost of your CCW application depends on your county and whether you’re renewing. On average, it’s about $100-150 to apply for the first time.

For example, if you’re applying for your CCW in Denver County, you’ll pay a $152.50 fee that covers your background check and processing. There may be some other costs for things like a temporary permit and fingerprints, too.

If you’re renewing, it’s a lot cheaper. In Denver County, you’ll pay a $63.00 renewal fee.

The state of Colorado says they will let you know within 90 days of submitting your application.

No. You will not need to complete a written or live-fire test for your CCW permit.

Your CCW is good for five years. If you decide to renew, you must do so within 120 days of the expiration date.

Anyone can take a CCW class! Whether you’re a total beginner or have been in the military for decades, our classes are inviting, and our instructors can’t wait to meet you! 

Keep in mind that Colorado requires you to be at least 21 years old to apply for your permit. If you’re a minor interested in taking a class, you can absolutely do so as long as you’re accompanied by a guardian.

While we encourage everyone to take a class to stay up to date on their skills and state laws, you do not need to take a CCW class to apply for your permit if you’re military or recently out of the military.

If you are active duty military or have proof of honorable discharge within three years of submitting an application, you do not have to take a firearms safety training class to obtain your permit.

No — your CCW permit is not public information.

Concealed carry reciprocity means that other states will respect your Colorado CCW permit, giving you the legal right to conceal carry in that state. This is especially helpful when traveling.

Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming
