Concealed Carry Classes conducted at local hotels

Beware!

Thinking about taking a concealed carry weapons class conducted at a local hotel?

Beware!

Recently we have been receiving a number of inquiries regarding concealed carry weapon classes being conducted in rented hotel rooms. Most of which are being conducted by out-of-town vagabonds who travel the state conducting weekend classes. The classes range from 1 1/2 – 3 hours and claim to provide all the training necessary to meet the State of Florida’s minimum training requirements for applying for a Florida concealed carry weapons license. In most instances that claim is an absolute falsehood.

Florida law requires that anyone conducting an approved or recognized concealed carry weapons training class must witness the student “. . . . discharge of the firearm included live fire using a firearm and ammunition as defined in s. 790.001; . . . .” Florida Statute 790.06.(2)(h)7

Take your concealed carry and firearms training only from an established, local training organization. Not from a group of vagabonds, who travel the state, conducting weekend classes in rented hotel rooms.

In-Gauge of Polk County will honor a paid receipt or issued training certificate from anyone who registered for or attended a concealed carry class conducted at a hotel for a FREE In-Gauge of Polk County basic, minimum standards concealed carry class (CCW 100). Provide documentation at the time of registration for FREE class participation.
In-Gauge of Polk County’s concealed carry training is guaranteed to meet the State of Florida’s training requirement for applying for a Florida concealed carry weapons license.

Beware!

By virtue of the fact they are using a rented hotel room should be a BIG red flag. Before you register for one of their classes, call them, if they provide a phone number to call. Search their physical business address, if they have one. Or, are they operating out of a P.O. box?

Those conducting hotel concealed carry weapons classes may claim to be certified NRA instructors. Do not be misled! Official NRA firearms and concealed carry classes are never taught in rented hotel rooms or at gun shows.

Those conducting hotel concealed carry weapons classes may even claim to provide fingerprinting services that will be recognized by the Florida Department of Agriculture when applying for you license. Another falsehood.

Recognized and accepted fingerprinting must be digitally performed by either a law enforcement agency, an approved county tax collector’s office or a Florida Dept. of Agriculture concealed carry weapons processing center . . . Florida Statute 790.06.(5)(c).

If the concealed carry weapons license class conducted in a rented hotel room does not include a trip the the range and involve the firing of a firearm using live ammunition, the training is not valid for applying for a State of Florida concealed carry weapons license.

Laser guns, airsoft guns or simulated firing does not qualify as “live-fire” and is not recognized by the State of Florida.

If you take a concealed carry weapons license class that does not include firing live ammunition from a real firearm, you risk losing your license processing and application fee and having your licensed revoked, if it is discovered after issuance.

Was something special found under the Christmas tree?

Did someone in your life get something special for Christmas?

Now get them the training they need to carry and use it safely.

Yes, we do conduct concealed carry classes. We also conduct official NRA firearms training that teaches how to defend your life and the lives of your loved ones.

In-Gauge of Polk County has been conducting incomparable concealed carry classes, in Polk County, for over 6 years. During such time, we have trained over 5,000 law abiding citizens how to defend their lives and the lives of their loved ones. We receive numerous word-of-mouth referrals, with students traveling from as far north as Atlanta, Georgia and as far south as Fort Lauderdale and Naples to attend our classes.

However, we have not done a good job in getting the word out that we conduct more than basic ‘concealed carry’ classes.

Although our basic, 5-hour concealed carry training class (CCW 101), is head and shoulders above and beyond any other ‘concealed carry’ class conducted locally and far exceeds the minimum standard for applying for a Florida concealed carry license, by NRA standards, it is considered a basic, orientation, firearms training class.

For your convenience and to make our other self-defense, firearms training classes more understandable, we have packaged several of our classes and displayed them below. Our most basic concealed carry class is only $35 and provides the necessary training for applying for a Florida concealed carry weapons license.

We don’t mind if our competition takes notice and attempts to imitate our training programs, because we know our training cannot be duplicated. We are just that good. It has been said, “It aint brag’n if it’s true.

Recently we have been receiving a number of inquiries regarding concealed carry weapon classes being conducted in rented hotel rooms.

Considering A Concealed Carry Class?

What do you want from your class?
  • Instruction on state laws pertaining to the ownership, purchase and use of firearms
  • Instruction on how to apply for a Florida concealed carry license
  • Instruction on the various types of firearms used for concealed carry purposes and self-defense
  • Instruction on the handling and shooting of a firearm
  • Hands-on handgun training and live-fire range range training
  • Handgun proficiency training for the defense of your life and the lives of your loved ones
  • Just getting a piece of paper that allows you to apply for a Florida concealed carry weapons license
Not all concealed carry classes are the same.
  • Concealed carry classes taught at hotels, gun shows and gun shops:
    • Will provide you with that piece of paper that allows you to apply for a Florida concealed carry license (CCWP/CWP)
    • Will provide you with instruction on state laws pertaining to the ownership, purchase and use of firearms
    • Will provide you with instruction on how to apply for a Florida concealed carry license
    • May provide you with instruction on the various types of firearms used for concealed carry purposes.
    • Will provide you with little to no instruction on the purchase of the appropriate firearm for the defense of your life and the lives of your loved ones
    • Will not provide any hands-on firearms training
    • Will not provide any live-fire range firearms training
    • Will not provide any training for the defense of your life or the lives of your loved ones

For a firearms training that fulfills and exceeds the training requirements for applying for a State of Florida concealed carry weapons license (CCWP/CCP/CCP) take only a firearms training class conducted by an official NRA firearms training organization. NRA firearms training is never taught in rented hotel rooms, at gun shows and rarely at gun shops, even those that have their own indoor range.

Classes conducted in a rented hotel room or at a gun show

Such classes are conducted by out-of-town vendors, that in most instances, do not have a local address, do not have a local license, do not have a local reputation, carry little to no insurance and have no way of getting in contact with them if there is a problem with your paperwork.

Question: Would buy a used car from a traveling auto dealer who sets up a weekend sale in a local department store parking lot?

Just because someone claims to be an NRA instructor does not mean he or she is conducting an NRA training class.

NRA firearms training

NRA instructors, who conduct NRA training classes are proud to wear official NRA clothing, displaying the NRA instructor logo.

If the instructor teaching your class is not wearing or displaying the official NRA instructor logo, not promoting NRA firearms training classes and NRA memberships, and

he or she is more interested in selling you T-shirts, mugs and bumper stickers, you are NOT attending official NRA training.

Official NRA firearms training classes are never taught in rented hotel rooms, at gun shows and rarely in gun shops.
