NRA Certified Concealed Carry Weapon (CCW) Course
This is the NRA Certified Concealed Carry Weapon (CCW) Course taught by NRA CCW Instructors and teaches the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to carry a concealed pistol for personal defense.
This instructor-led course gives you direct instruction from an NRA-certified instructor from beginning to end and will be conducted in a classroom and on a shooting range.
This course is intended for all individuals regardless of previous shooting experience or NRA-affiliation. However, If you are a beginning shooter, we highly recommend you take Fundamentals Private Lesson before you take this course.
This course costs $175 per person. The first half of the day we have classroom instruction. The second half of the day is personalized range time with our instructors.
The classroom portion will cover Firearm Safety, Ammunition Knowledge and Defensive Ammunition Selection, Drawing from Concealment, and Loading and Stoppage Remediation.
The range portion will include student drills and the NRA CCW qualification test. This shooting portion includes drawing your firearm from an outside the waistband (OTW) holster from concealment.
Our philosophy is to make safe and responsible gun owners through personalized small group firearm training in an approachable and welcoming learning environment. We are not trying to make a quick profit, we sincerely want to make competent CCW candidates.
We recommend you bring your own personal firearm that you are considering as a concealed carry firearm. Typically this means a more compact firearm in a caliber larger than .22.
If you do not know which firearm you want as your concealed carry firearm, we highly recommend scheduling a private lesson where we can bring the 5 most common concealed carry firearms for you to try personally before buying!
An outside the waste-band holster is required for this course. We recommend holsters made out of Kydex, a hard plastic material that protects well from accidentally depressing the trigger. We highly recommend the Vedder Holster Quick Draw OWB if you don’t already have a holster for your firearm.
It’s possible for each student to fire up to 300 rounds of ammunition during this course. For this reason we do ask that you bring 300 rounds for practice and qualification. We understand that ammunition is still hard to find so we do have high quality 9mm ammunition available for sale on our site that we will bring to the course. Simply add it to your cart along with this course to reserve yours.
