This course is specifically geared toward students over age 50. It discusses and addresses some of the challenges we face as we age, in terms of self-defense.  

The class will still cover the mechanics of a firearm and how managing a firearm changes with age, but it is not designed for those who have never held a gun before. We recommend you start with First Time Holding A Gun if you have NEVER shot a gun before. This class is for seniors who are ready to get their concealed carry license and understand the necessity of safe gun handling. 

The class will cover senior-centric firearms topics as well as general topics such as Florida concealed carry law, ammunition, and personal defense tactics and concerns. Bring your gun and 25 rounds of ammo, as well as eye and ear protection (which can be rented for a couple dollars at the range if you do not have such protection.) While we prefer that you qualify with the gun you plan to carry, you can rent a gun at the range if desired. The cost of the class does not cover gun rental or ammo.
