First Responders/ Teachers/ Groups: E-mail instructor for Discount Code 15% OFF
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, 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 spaghetti or a sandwich platter from Subway), or you may choose to bring your own or pick up something locally. Before leaving the classroom, we will inspect student firearms to ensure they are safe for use and function correctly. Please leave firearms in your vehicles until instructed otherwise.
In the afternoon we will take a short drive to the range, review Safety Rules, and then shoot a Qualification Course with live ammunition. At the Range, you may share your handgun with another student provided each has enough ammunition for qualification with that handgun. In the event you cannot bring a handgun to the class, please contact the instructor before the class date for availability and cost of a loaner weapon.
The instructor requires a copy of your driver's license once you register.
Required Training Equipment for Concealed Carry Handgun Class

Hi-Point, Bersa, Davis Industries, Jimenez, Bryco, Jennings, Raven, Phoenix Arms, Kel-tec
- A belt or paddle-style holster for your handgun with a sturdy belt
- A minimum of fifty (50) rounds of ammunition per person for your firearm. Those with limited shooting experience should bring at least one hundred (100) rounds to ensure you have enough for qualification.
If you have eye/ ear protection, please bring that as well; however, we have plenty if you can’t.
Also, you should bring the following:
*Baseball hat/ cap with a brim
*Appropriate clothing for the weather (we shoot rain or shine unless it is lightning!)

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 issued by Archangel Protection will be provided as well for the student.
There are no upcoming classes scheduled for this course.
