FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What do I do with the certificate that I will receive once I finish the Concealed Carry Handgun Class?
Take the certificate of completion to the the Sheriff’s Office in the county that you live in and they will issue you the concealed carry permit once you’ve completed the appropiate forms.
I don’t have a handgun yet, can I still take the Concealed Carry Handgun Class?
Yes. I rent .22 semi automatics and .22 revolvers for just $20 which includes the ammunition. You will need to fire a 30 round course of fire from the 3, 5, and 7 yard line.
Do I need to bring my lunch or do we take a lunch break?
You may bring a lunch if you like. We have several picnic tables on location, however we do break for lunch around 11:45 am and return around 1:00 pm. We also take regular breaks every hour.
I heard that the Concealed Carry Permit also serves as a permit to buy a handgun, is this true?
Yes, absolutely! Once you receive your Concealed Carry Handgun Permit you can use it to purchase a handgun. You will not have to go to the Sheriff’s Office anymore to buy permits. For some people who buy a few handguns every year this savings alone will pay for the cost of the Concealed Carry Class!
Is the NC Concealed Carry Handgun Permit good in North Carolina only?
No. It’s good in 36 states! We go over this in class. It’s called the law of reciprocity.
What if it rains, will you still hold the class?
Yes. Of course during a thunderstorm we’ll let it pass. A light rain will not hold up training. Remember, the bad guys don’t always wait for good weather!
I have several handguns. Can I bring any handgun that I want to use to qualify for the Concealed Carry Handgun Class?
Yes. I recommend though that you bring one that you are comfortable with. Keep in mind that .22 caliber ammo is a lot cheaper than say some of the higher caliber handguns. Also some ammo other than .22 caliber is in short supply. I would buy my ammo at least a week before class.
I’ve never shot a handgun before? Can I still take the class?
Yes. In addition to legal issues we also go over shooting fundamentals, gun safety, and gun cleaning. Remember, the farthest that you will be shooting from is just 7 yards which works out to 21 feet. I also offer additional firearms training for the beginner as well as advanced training.
Why do we only shoot from the 3, 5, and 7 yard line?
Because that is the minimum that the North Carolina Department of Justice requires. I could have you shoot farther back but the reason that I don’t is because most deadly force encounters happen between 3 and 5 yards.
