Basic Firearm Courses

You will learn how to safely handle a firearm, including basic & advanced shooting techniques, and students 21 years and older will qualify for a Florida concealed carry license (Florida’s Concealed Weapons License or CWL) in one of our NRA-approved classes.

Note: For safety purposes, please wear full-length pants, crew neck shirts (no v-necks or low necklines), and closed-toe shoes to all of our firearms courses. These precautions prevent hot casings from coming into contact with bare skin.

Pistol Classes

Our courses are separated into three simple steps to help you gain a full understanding and proficiency with pistols.

Step 1 is the Basic Pistol courses. Either of these courses will qualify you for your Florida CWL.

Step 2 is the NRA Personal Protection in the Home class, in which you will learn intermediate shooting skills and home defense strategies (Prerequisite: the 5- or 8-hour NRA Step 1 classes).

Step 3 is the NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home class, in which you will learn advanced target acquisition, shooting skills, and holster draw (Prerequisite: NRA Personal Protection in the Home).

These lessons include classroom instruction and time to gain experience at one of our preferred gun ranges. Prices include all course material, handgun rental(s) and ammunition specified. Classroom instruction and range time may be split into multiple days to meet your needs.

All of our pistol classes meet the Florida State requirements to obtain a Florida concealed carry license (Florida Statute 790.06). Students must be 21 years or older to receive a license from the State of Florida.
