CONCEAL CARRY CLASS : End of Winter Special – $25

The material presented in this class is unmatched anywhere locally. Guaranteed.

Concealed Carry Class- Minimum Standards Sunday, February 28, 2021

Cost $25 per person – This class only

We have received calls from people wanting to know what makes this class a “minimum standards” class and how does it differ from a class conducted at a gun show, gun shop or a rented hotel room.

The answer is:

  • Our 3 hour ‘minimum standards‘ class is more comprehensive, covering more relevant material and up-to-date current events.
  • Our classes are both informative and entertaining
  • Our are classes are small and interactive
  • You will neither be bored or fall asleep in one of our classes.
  • We use modern, up-to-date audio-visual equipment
  • This class fulfills the training requirement for applying for a Sate of Florida concealed carry license.
  • Although this class includes the firing of a real, defensive caliber handgun, it does not include handgun training. That is what makes it minimum standards‘.

Online registration and prepayment is required.

You will leave this class with an awareness of the use of a firearm for self-defense and the defense of the lives of your loved ones that you never had.  You will be presented with material you never knew existed.  The material presented in this class is unmatched anywhere locallyGuaranteed.

Do not settle for a ‘concealed carry class’ taught in a rented hotel room, where you fire one shot from a mocked-up handgun, using a paint cartridge into a paper target taped to a wall.

Topics covered:
• Florida law pertaining to carrying a concealed carry weapon
• Gun safety and the fundamentals of handgun handling
• Self-Defense strategies
• What guns to purchase for concealed carry and self-defense
• Applying for and maintaining your Florida concealed carry license
• Live-fire proficiency demonstration and evaluation

Following the classroom session, the student will live-fire a handgun for safety and proficiency evaluation, as required by State law, for certification.

This is our most basic concealed carry class. The class includes all the subject material and training required for applying for a State of Florida concealed carry license and includes live-fire, firearm proficiency evaluation.  This is not a firearms training class.

All equipment and materials provided

  • Firearm
  • Ammunition
  • Hearing protection
  • Eye protection
  • Printed course materials

Class Time

All class participation information will be provided at the time of paid registration.

Handgun/Concealed Carry License Qualification Training (CCW 101) classes are conducted every Saturday through December 19th.

In-Gauge of Polk County – Holiday gift certificates

Gift certificates are available for as little as $35, for our 3 hour, minimum standards concealed carry class.

In-Gauge of Polk County 2020 gift certificates available.

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.

In-Gauge of Polk County is represented at more retail sporting goods stores than any other forearms training group in central Florida.

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, we consider it a basic, orientation, self-defense, training class.

We encourage you to contact your local law enforcement agency and ask if they provided firearm training beyond a basic State qualification concealed carry class.

Ask that same agency or any gun shop concealed carry class provider if they train you in:

  • drawing from a holster or a pocketbook,
  • the various methods of carrying a concealed firearm,
  • the clearing of firearm malfunctions and jams,
  • the utilization of cover and concealment or
  • the tactical use of a shotgun for home defense.

In-Gauge of Polk County, an official NRA firearms training provider does.
