Hi everyone and thank you for choosing Defense360, LLC for CWP needs! My name is Trenton Hayes, and I look forward to sharing the fundamentals of possessing a CWP with you! 

For this class, we ask that you wear the appropriate attire: (ie. shirt with sleeves, comfortable pants, as well as closed-toe shoes).

As discussed a live firing range qualification portion is required. If you have a firearm that you would like to use at that time, please let me know in advance. Please provide me with the details of your firearm prior to your class, this will allow me time to review the manufactures guide. To ensure the safety of all, there will be no live ammunition or personal firearms allowed in the classroom.  During the classroom portion, we will be handling dummy firearms as well as dummy round ammunition only!   


If you decide to bring your own firearm, please also bring ammunition. A minimum of 50 rounds of ammunition will be required.  Also If you already have range ear protection and eye protection, bring that, but you can also feel free to rent eye protection and ear protection at the range. 

The instructor requires a copy of your Government Issued ID once you register.
