We currently offer private lessons, simulation based training, and a Train Before You Aim© approach to Concealed Carry Handgun class. Our goal is to make sure you are comfortable throughout your development each and every GR8TDAY.
Not quite sure about handgun ownership and operation? This beginners course allows you the chance to learn the basics and practice the concepts, without the stress handling live fire ammunition. With the use of The Smokeless Range, you will be able to apply the basic knowledge of proper handgun operation and safety.
The North Carolina Concealed Carry Handgun (CCH) Training is the model course produced by the North Carolina Justice Academy. Upon completion of the course and live-fire exercises, successful students will receive a certificate required for the NC CCH permit.
NC Concealed Carry IS NOT a beginner or first step course!!
The NC Concealed Carry class is a law based course that provides you with the necessary information for concealed handgun ownership in the state. It covers basic knowledge of a handgun but it does not provide you with the safe and proper fundamentals of being a safe, TRAINED, and prepared handgun owner.
BEFORE taking this class, it is implied that you are ready to apply for your concealed carry handgun license. This means you are comfortable with the basic fundamental of defensive handgun operation. We cannot emphasise enough, Train Before You Aim© This means at the absolute minimum, you can load, unload, and safely fire a handgun WITHOUT aid or assistance. Participants must also shoot at a minimum B-27 targe at 3, 5, and 7 yards, scoring at least 70% accuracy.
