This dynamic and fast paced class builds on the pistol skills learned when you completed your Ohio Concealed Handgun License (CHL) Course.  Almost everyone would say that they are not confident or comfortable carrying a concealed pistol for self-defense after their initial training and receiving their license.  That is why FPS Firearms Training and Security Consulting LLC created the Advanced Concealed Carry Skill Builder Class.  And, as a responsible concealed carry licensee, you should not wait one-more-minute to get this very important and quite possibly life-saving training.

Take a look at the details:

The Advanced Concealed Carry Skill Builder Class teaches you to understand safe gun handling safety rules as they apply to concealed carry, the basic principals of concealment, presenting a pistol from a strong side hip holster and holstering it safely, metal awareness, the mental preparation to develop a defensive mindset, and engaging a threat with combat accuracy.

You will shoot a lot and have an enjoyable time at the range learning these critical skills.
