NC Conceal Carry Handgun
NC Justice Academy approved class covering firearm basics, the Laws Governing Concealed Handgun and the Use of Deadly Force.
Duration: 8 hours (minimum)
North Carolina has allowed law-abiding citizens to obtain a permit to carry a handgun concealed anywhere within the state (with exceptions) starting in 1995. As of 2017, NC ranks 10th in number of permits with over 600,000 permits issued.
Our NC Conceal Carry Class (mandated by 12 NC Administrative Code 09F and approved by the NC Justice Academy) is an information packed, hands-on, interactive class. We teach you firearm safety habits and show you the purpose of the major components of a handgun. You will learn where you can/cannot carry, how to carry, how to present (draw), and when you are legally allowed to do so. At the end of each section, you will handle all equipment for practice, memory retention and demonstrate understanding.
If you want to do more than sit and stare at a PowerPoint for 8-hours, you have found the right spot. Sign-up today and join the other North Carolinian’s who have decided to take personal responsibility for safety of family and friends.

*** PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE SECTION CAREFULLY ***
Students are not allowed to have/handle live ammunition in the classroom - there are no exceptions. It doesn't matter if it's in a locked box, a magazine or your pocket.
If you have a handgun you plan to shoot during range qualification, please bring it into the classroom. One of the instructors will clear it and stage it with the other handguns we'll have on display - the more variety the better the learning experience.
Pack your lunch, but drinks & snacks will be made available. You're welcomed to bring your own if you prefer.
