You took a concealed carry class. Now, are you qualified?

We train you to defend your life and the lives of your loved ones.

What qualifies you to carry a deadly weapon in public?

With having a concealed carry weapons license also comes responsibility. Being qualified to carry a deadly weapon in public involves more than just having a card in your wallet.

There is a reason we train more Florida concealed carry license holders than any other entity in Polk County and most likely more than all others combined.

Will Rogers once said: “It ain’t bragging if it’s true.”

We have students travel from, as far away as, Naples and Fort Lauderdale to the south and Pensacola and Jacksonville to the north. And, from out-of-state, Texas and Georgia. There is a reason why.

Others may conduct “concealed carry” classes, but we train you to use a firearm to defend your life and the lives of your loved ones. All our firearm training classes qualify the participant for applying for a Florida concealed carry license.

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

Americans Bought 21 Million Guns in 2020

8.4 million were first time buyers

The Daily Signal – January 05, 2021

The world has said “good riddance” to 2020 and ushered in a new year. Although 2020 was a year in which many people faced extraordinary challenges, it did come with a silver lining for advocates of a strong Second Amendment right—unprecedented growth in the number of Americans who embrace their right to keep and bear arms.

According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Americans bought an estimated 21 million firearms in 2020, with 8.4 million Americans buying a gun for the first time last year.

Additionally, the number of Americans with concealed carry permits continued to grow, albeit at a slower rate than in past years. This likely was due to record-long delays in permit processing and shutdowns because of COVID-19.

It is hardly surprising that law-abiding citizens flocked to exercise their Second Amendment rights last year. It was, after all, a year replete with widespread civil unrest and calls to strip resources from police departments already hamstrung by a global pandemic.

The left is actively working to undermine the integrity of our elections. Read the plan to stop them now. Learn more now >>

But even during “normal” years, the right to keep and bear arms plays an important role in preserving the public safety.

According to a 2013 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost every major study on the issue found that Americans use their firearms in self-defense between 500,000 and 3 million times a year. We have good reason to believe that many of these defensive gun uses aren’t reported to police, much less make the local or national news.
