CAN I SIGN MY FRIENDS/FAMILY UP?
Absolutely! On the form below, there is an option to purchase multiple reservations.
WHAT TO BRING:
All you need to bring with you for the CCW class is a photo ID and something to write with.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO HAVING A CCW IN A “CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY” STATE?
1) Reciprocity: several states recognize out CCW and will allow you to carry concealed in their states with our permit. Nevada is one of these states. I have spoken with DPS and they will not update their website until they get a written letter from Nevada, If you need to confirm, you can call 702-828-3271.
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) Be able to carry into alcohol serving establishments concealed
6) Serves as a way of informing a police officer you have a firearm without having to say the word “gun” when interacting with them.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER FEES ASSOCIATED WITH GETTING MY CCW?
You will need to have your fingerprints done before submitting your packet to the state of Arizona. We do not require you to do them through us, but we will have someone offering fingerprinting services for $20 on site. It is important to know this is not included in the cost of the class.
As with all other Arizona CCW classes, you will need to submit a $60 money order or cashiers check to AZ DPS within 90 days of the class along with your packet.
I HAVE A DPS/FEDERAL CLEARANCE CARD, DO I STILL NEED TO HAVE MY FINGERPRINTS DONE?
Yes. The CCW department of Arizona DPS does not recognize any clearance cards, even if they are federal.
WHAT NOT TO BRING:
All live fire exercises are done on a range. no live ammunition or firearms should ever be brought into the facility.
If you need to cancel, you may do so by calling our office at 480-244-6315 up to 48 hours before the course so we can provide a seat to the next person. If done before the cutoff date, you can credit the paid funds toward another class for a $10 administrative fee.
All no call/no shows or cancellations within 48 hours of the class may result in all paid funds being forfeited.
No Refunds will be provided. You will have the option to apply the amount you paid towards another course in the form of a credit if your cancelation or reschedule is arranged before 48 hours of the class for an administrative fee of 50% off a standard ticket price.
