COLORADO CONCEALED CARRY TRAINING
This non-NRA course is designed for people already proficient with their handgun, and competent in basic firearms safety who wish to acquire a Colorado Concealed Weapons Permit. The course is split between class and range time almost equally. Topics covered include Mindset, Tactics, Use of cover and concealment, Movement, Emergency and tactical reloading, and clearing malfunctions. Emphasis is placed on presentation from concealment (primarily the holster and/or purse/fanny pack). The student is expected to be able to properly manipulate their pistol, and demonstrate safe firearms handling practices at all times. This is NOT a rubber stamp course where you buy a certificate and head off to the sheriff, there are plenty of those being offered elsewhere for less cost. Please don't waste our time or yours if that's all you're looking for. This course will provide you actual relevant training should you ever need to utilize your concealed carry permit in self defense.
Length: 8 hours. Cost: $150.00 per student (includes range use fees)
