Successful students, upon completion, will receive the certificate required to apply for the NC CCH permit.

Students will need a pistol and approximately 50 rounds of ammunition. A defensive caliber handgun is advised. Rimfire pistols are NOT recommended. Students who do not own a gun may rent a firearm from the range (selection may be limited).
