At 8 a.m., class will begin at the VFW with a brief introduction, Safety Rules and locations of restrooms, smoking areas, etc. Following that, NC General Statutes require eight (8) hours of classroom instruction (a portion of which is done at the range before qualification), including at least two (2) hours of NC Laws Governing Concealed Carry and Use of Force. Students are given a state-issued lesson plan, supplemented with PowerPoint presentations, student exercises, class discussion, and a multiple-choice test. There are short breaks each hour as well as a working lunch break. You are welcome to bring snacks and drinks to class and lunch is provided (typically a sandwich platter from Subway or local diner options), or you may choose to bring your own. At the range, we will review Safety Rules, conduct dry-fire exercises, and then shoot a Qualification Course with live ammunition.
PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a beginner's class. Students are expected to be somewhat proficient and already know how to shoot before attending this class. Although it is not required, it is recommended that those with no or litte handgun experience take a Basic Handgun class before attending this course.
***Handgun/ Ammunition Requirement***
1. You must bring your own semiauto handgun and at least 30 rounds of ammunition OR
2. Students may elect to share a handgun, provided each student has at least 30 rounds of ammunition and no more than 2 students use the same handgun OR
3. (NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME) You must purchase the additional "Handgun Rental" for $10.00 and "CCH/ Ammo" for $25.00.
Course will cover all required content as mandated by the NC Dept of Justice and NC General Statutes.
Expectations and Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will receive a numbered certificate issued by the NC Dept of Justice. This certificate is then turned in with the student's application at the Sheriff's office in their county of residence when applying for a Concealed Carry Handgun permit.
A second certificate suitable for framing will also be issued by Archangel Protection upon successful completion of the course.
