This is our St. Patty's Day gift to the ladies. This is our Concealed Carry Class but with a twist. At the end of the class, we will be giving away a brand new still-in-the-box pistol to one lucky attendee (minimum 20 attendees).  Winner must be a PA resident and be able to pass a background check.

This class is a follow up to the requisite Basic Pistol class where students learn if concealed carry is for them. Our Basic Pistol class is a prerequisite to this course. Student must have previously taken our Basic Pistol class to be approved for this class.

Welcome to our comprehensive Concealed Carry Class, where empowerment meets responsibility. This course is meticulously designed to equip participants with the knowledge, skills, and mindset necessary for safe and effective concealed carry. Our seasoned instructors guide you through a well-rounded curriculum covering firearm safety, marksmanship, legal considerations, and situational awareness. With hands-on drawing from your holster / purse, you'll develop the confidence to handle various self-defense situations responsibly. Join us on this journey towards personal protection and responsible gun ownership – because being prepared is not just about carrying, but carrying responsibly.

Expectations and Outcomes

At the conclusion of the class, gun owners who decide they want to conceal carry will have all the necessary information how to go about doing so safely, responsibly AND legally.

Additionally, at the conclusion of the class, a handgun will be given away to one lucky attendee, a $500 value.

Pennsylvania does not require completion of a safety class prior to obtaining a concealed carry permit. However, at the conclusion of this class, students will receive a "Certificate of Completion". This CoC can be used as proof that students registering for more advanced classes with Dakota Firearms Training Academy have taken this intermediate class. Please double check your registered name, as it will be that name which will be printed on your certificate.
