Students will receive a completion certificate suitable for framing and a complimentary copy of the USCCA textbook by Michael Martin, Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals.
Students will be required to sign a waiver at the range.
Wear a hat with a brim or bill and closed-toed shoes. A sling is optional and not necessary. Bring water or a beverage and a pen and notebook for taking notes.
