Wanting to conceal carry?
This is a private course you will need to apply for your North Carolina Concealed Handgun Permit.
Grab a group of friends or family and take your North Carolina Concealed Carry Course together! Enjoy each others company while learning all the regulations, shooting qualifications, and lunch!
THIS IS NOT AN INTRODUCTORY COURSE OR A CLASS TO TEACH YOU HOW TO SHOOT. Please make sure that you are familiar with the fundamentals of pistol shooting (i.e. loading, unloading, grip, aim, sight alignment, sight picture, etc.). If you are a new shooter, we recommend that you first either take our Introduction to Handguns class (click here to sign up) or do a few private instruction sessions (click here to sign up).
We know the decision to conceal carry is an important one — a choice that bears incredible responsibility. That's why we provide top-quality courses from our state-of-the-art facility designed to help you understand your role in keeping yourself and those around you safe. Each class is led by experts who are thoroughly trained in the world of firearms.
We offer CCW courses for residents in North Carolina. These classes provide the experienced shooter with the state-mandated information and qualifications to legally conceal and carry their firearm where allowed.
The course is available from our Charlotte, NC, location throughout the year. Each class lasts nine hours, which is divided into:
- Eight hours of classroom instruction, which is composed of a review of self-defense laws and North Carolina concealed carry laws
- A 30-minute lunch break
- Live fire qualifications on the range, where you'll fire 50 rounds from 3, 5, 7 and 9 yards
We supply nearly all the equipment you'll need at the range, so you'll be fully prepared to take the class even if you don't yet have your own firearm or enough ammunition. Provided items include:
- A firearm, although we encourage you to bring your own handgun and ammunition if possible, to ensure you are comfortable with the firearm you plan to carry
- Eye and ear protection
- A target
- 9mm ammunition
- Lunch — please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any dietary restriction 24hrs prior to class
NOTE: It is recommended you use the firearm you will be carrying if possible. If bringing your own firearm & ammunition, please leave it in your car until you are asked to retrieve it; no live ammunition or loaded firearms are is permitted in the classroom.
