What those who conduct ‘concealed carry’ classes do not want you to know:
In Florida . . .
- NO license is required to purchase or own a firearm.
- NO license is required to transport a loaded firearm in your vehicle. (However, one must know how to do so legally.)
- NO license is required to use a firearm to defend your life and home.
- NO license is required to take a firearms training course to learn how to use a firearm.
Why do we inform you of this?
We are not in the ‘concealed carry class’ business. Rather, we are a non-profit organization that conducts self-defense, firearms training. We want you to be trained in the safe handling, use and storage of your firearm.
Unless specifically stated that firearm/handgun training is included, NO firearm/handgun training is conducted in a ‘concealed carry‘ class. Basically, NO ‘concealed carry‘ class includes any significant handgun training.
Possessing a concealed carry license does not mean you are trained to carry a deadly weapon in public. Rather, it only demonstrates that you paid the State of Florida $97 and passed a background check.
We want you to be trained in the handling, use and firing of a firearm for the defense of your life and the lives of your loved ones.
All our firearms training classes exceed the training requirements for applying for a Florida concealed carry license. Upon successful completion of any of our firearms training classes, an official certificate of training is issued good for applying for a Florida concealed carry weapons license. No other class or training is required for applying for a Florida license recognized in 37 states.
Even if you do not possess a concealed carry license or you never intend to apply for one, allow us to train you in the purchasing, handling, use, firing and storage of your firearm.
