Firearm familiarization and how to manipulate and load/unload your firearm. The student will learn where they can conceal carry their firearm and when they can use lethal force, according to FL Statute 790. The student will also be taught malfunction drills in the event the firearm fails to perform adequately and range time to show proficiency and safety learned in the course.

Range time and additional ammunition costs are not included.

If you already own a firearm, I urge you to bring it to class so that you may train with it. Also if you may have any questions regarding concealment and holsters we may discuss at that time or when the subject matter arises in class.

The price includes instruction, firearm, and 10 rounds of ammunition. A certificate of successful completion will be awarded at the end of the course via email for more secure keeping of records.
