North Carolina Concealed Carry Permit
Date: See Calendar
Time: 8:00am – 6:00pm
Our instructors have trained citizens from all walks of life how to safely handle, load, shoot, unload, and store firearms: teachers, housewives, registered nurses, hospitality employees, beauticians, real estate agents, lawyers, business owners, landlords, college students, social workers, and home-owners. We are confident that we can train you too!
No prior shooting or gun handling experience is needed, but we highly recommend that you have taken either the NRA FIRST Steps or NRA Basic course first. We train you from the ground up with safety being the number one concern. The Firearms Instructor is also an NRA Range Safety Officer (RSO). As such, he has the credentials to safely oversee and conduct shooting activities at a firing range.
Our class is taught by NRA and NC Justice Academy certified trainers.
