As I am sure you are aware due to recent tragic events the 2nd Amendment is under attack again by the government. I offer these training classes in order to offer qualified US citizens an opportunity to obtain the state mandated training required to obtain a concealed carry permit in this state. I do not know what new law or group of laws are going to be considered or passed but I would like to tell you that if you ever desired getting your concealed carry permit now just may be the time.
If you own a firearm and are not a member of the NRA you need to seriously consider joining today. Our 2nd amendment rights are under severe attack from those seeking to ban certain firearms and impose massive restriction on all US gun owners.
Currently the NRA is offering a one year membership special at the low cost of $25 this is a $10 savings off the normal rate. There are many benefits to membership and they are detailed on the website when you click the special membership link above. I encourage you to stand up for your right to own firearms and join the NRA today.
There will be an opportunity to join the NRA at the class.
(*Must be a NC resident for 30 days and 21 yrs old to qualify for North Carolina Concealed Carry permit in NC.)
After receiving your certificate you can apply to the sheriff’s office in the county you reside. Be sure to take your original training certificate with you when you go to apply. The Sheriff’s office charges $90 for a criminal background check and mental health check. Most Sheriff’s offices require you to pay in cash and EXACT change so make sure you find out ahead of time. Fees can vary somewhat so be sure to check with the Sheriff’s office in your county. If you are approved, your permit will be issued in less than 90 days. It is valid for 5 years. As of January 1,2010, the Sheriff's office is required to send you a renewal notice. The notice will be mailed to the address listed on your permit, so if you move contact the Sheriff's Office with your new address. You must appear at the county sheriff's office and pay the renewal fee.
******* NO MORE PISTOL PERMITS ********
Under North Carolina Law, the holder of a valid North Carolina Concealed Carry permit can use this permit to purchase handguns in the state of North Carolina. Obtaining a purchase permit is no longer required.
Range Safety: One of the most important parts of the training is range safety. You will be firing live ammo during qualification and it is of the utmost importance that you follow all instructions and safety procedures as explained to you prior to going to the range and at all times you are on the range. ANY violation of the range policy and safety procedures or a failure to follow instructions given to you on the range will result in an immediate suspension of your firearms qualification and you will be asked to leave the range immediately with No refund of tuition paid for the class. Range safety is a very serious matter and horseplay of any kind will not be tolerated.
Class time from 8:00 am until 5:00 or until range qualification is completed.
.22 caliber handguns and ammo are available for rental with the payment of an additional $15 for those who do not have their own handgun.
Hearing protection is provided and I also have some extra pairs of shooting glasses for you to use for no additional charge for those who do not have their own.
All classes are held at:
