First of all thank you for your interest in our courses. More importantly, thank you for your desire to increase you knowledge and skill as a SAFE and responsible gun owner.

The class will take place on Saturday, January 30th, 2016 starting at 9:00 am – 1:00 pm.

The chief instructor is an NRA certified Training Counselor, instructor, Professional gunsmith, and journeyman firearms engraver. He has over 3 years of professional firearms training experience, and currently certifies people to become NRA Instructors.

The course will cover defensive pistol selection, ethics of use of force, legal information, basic firearms knowledge, and what to do before, during, and after a defensive shooting incident, and legal information pertaining to use, carry, purchase, and ownership of a firearm.

The following are some benefits to having a CCW:
1) Reciprocity: several states recognize out CCW and will allow you to carry concealed in their states with our permit.
2) Under federal Law (USC 922(q)(2)(A)) It is illegal to transport your firearm within 1,000 feet of school grounds, unless you have a state issued firearms permit (Arizona CCW qualifies under this)
3) Faster processing for firearms purchases
4) the more you have in your corner if you have to defend yourself in court, the better
5) Serves as a way of informing a police officer you have a firearm without having to say the word “gun” when interacting with them.

We will also be offering an Arizona CCW qualification supplement on site for an additional $15

We will have someone on site to do fingerprints for Arizona CCW permit applications for an additional $15. Colorado CCW fingerprints have to be done at the local sheriff’s department. The CCW department of AZ DPS will not accept any clearance cards, including the DPS fingerprint cards. They will require new fingerprint cards to be filled out.
