First Responders (and immediate family), Teachers, Medical Professionals, Churches, Business and Groups:  E-mail instructor BEFORE Registration for Discount Code or to inquire about private classes.

At 8 a.m., class will begin 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. This accomplished with a state-approved 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, or you may choose to bring your own.  On the range we will review Safety Rules and shoot a Qualification Course with live ammunition per state law requirements.  
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 40 rounds of ammunition OR
2.  Students may elect to share a handgun, provided each student has at least 40 rounds of ammunition and no more than 2 students use the same handgun.
