We also offer private courses for groups of friends, family members, and companies that want to take training together in a closed setting that is not open to the general public.

It is the responsibility of every concealed firearm permit holder to know and understand all current laws, statues and regulations regarding any use, transporting, carrying or storage of firearms -concealed or otherwise. We recommend that you contact the credentialing authorities for the permits that you've been issued AND contact the appropriate authorities within any state that you plan to visit or venture. The below links for reciprocity and recognition are NOT to be interpreted as legal advice. It is the permit holder's responsibility to verify the accuracy of any information because reciprocity and recognition agreements can and sometimes do change.
