Regardless of your experience prior to entering this course, upon completion, your gun handling, marksmanship, and tactical skills will be better than they have ever been and you will be able to safely and easily present your weapon from a CONCEALED holster and fire two,sighted shots to the center of a target 5 yards away - all under 1.5 seconds! That`s right, from a concealed holster in 1.5 seconds!

This course more than satisfies gun handling and marksmanship criteria for a Concealed Weapons Permit in some states such as Arizona. If you are interested in applying for Nevada and Utah, more training is required. Visit the CCW FAQ page for more information.
