Gun Shows – Florida

 

Gun Show 12_NO

Official NRA firearm training classes are NEVER conducted at gun shows.
All official NRA firearm training classes exceed the State of Florida’s
training requirement of concealed carry license application.

Those who conduct gun show concealed carry classes do not like us telling you this, but they cannot dispute it.   They want you to believe that just because they are a NRA certified instructor they are conducting an official NRA firearm training class.  Nothing could be further from the truth!

Gun_Show_special 02B

After taking a gun show concealed carry weapons class and you are left asking yourself:  “Is this all there is?”bring a copy of your training certificate to us for OFFICIAL NRA firearms training for only $30.   (Regular class cost:  $65)

Certificates must be dated between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017.

You can save money by just taking our OFFICIAL NRA firearms training and not wasting your valuable time in a minimum required training, “git-r-done-quick” gun show class.
In our concealed carry class, you will fire a minimum of 50 rounds of defensive caliber ammunition on a live-fire range.
