Are You Serious About Concealed Carry Training?

Or do you just want a ‘git r done’ quick class in order apply for a license that allow you to legally carry a deadly weapon in public?

When you are serious about defending your life and the lives of your loved ones, In-Gauge of Polk County should be your only consideration for training.
If you think all there is to carrying a deadly weapon in public is knowing how to pull a trigger, take any gun show or class conducted in a rented hotel room.
In-Gauge of Polk County teaches you how to use your firearm to defend your life and the lives of your loved ones. There is no substitute for NRA firearms training.
Thinking about taking a concealed carry weapons class in a rented hotel room?

Let the buyer 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 providers that 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

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 handgun, you risk losing your license processing and application fee and having your licensed revoked, if it is discovered after issuance.

Polk County on road to becoming 2nd Amendment sanctuary

Polk County Commission will consider becoming a sanctuary county for gun rights under the Second Amendment

Polk County, Florida – 2nd Amendment Sanctuary County

https://www.theledger.com/news/20191217/make-polk-gun-sanctuary-commission-will-look-into-it

Polk County Commissioner John Hall wants to make the county a Second Amendment sanctuary, part of a nationwide movement against proposed restrictive gun laws.

BARTOW – The Polk County Commission will consider becoming a sanctuary county for gun rights under the Second Amendment.

The commission on Tuesday instructed County Attorney Michael Craig to research the relevant law and to present his findings at a future meeting. Craig told The Ledger after the meeting he expects to complete his research and present his findings to the commission at its Jan. 3 or Jan. 17 agenda review meeting.

Commissioner John Hall requested Craig look into a sanctuary measure because he feels Second Amendment rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution are threatened by recent efforts for tighter restrictions on gun possession and ownership. Those efforts appear to be gaining momentum recently after well publicized mass shootings in recent years.

“Every time a deranged person picks up a gun and kills people, those of us who are legal gun owners come under attack,” Hall told The Ledger after the meeting. “We should defend the rights of our citizens on all constitutional rights.”

Other commissioners agreed to have Craig research this issue with varying degrees of enthusiasm.

Chairman Bill Braswell said he didn’t know whether such a sanctuary measure is necessary but agreed to have the commission look at Craig’s findings. Commissioners Martha Santiago and Rick Wilson agreed.

“I think of this as political theater,” Commissioner George Lindsey said. “This seems to be a solution looking for a problem.”

The Second Amendment sanctuary movement appears to have gained momentum as a backlash against the movement for more restrictive gun laws.

In Virginia, for example, more than 40 local governments passed such measures after control of its legislature passed from Republicans to Democrats last month, according to a Dec. 11 story in USA Today. Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam has said he would support measures such as universal background checks for gun purchases, limits on the sale of certain types of firearms and a so-called “red flag” law allowing authorities to take guns from persons posing a danger to themselves or others, as determined by a court.

The various sanctuary measures adopted so far vary widely in scope and impact, according to internet research by The Ledger.

Some measures, such as a resolution passed by the Lake County Commission on Nov. 5, go no further than declaring the county a Second Amendment sanctuary and its support for those rights. The Ledger obtained a copy of that resolution.

Other measures go a step further and declare county officials will not cooperate with federal or state law enforcement authorities carrying out gun restrictions they consider unconstitutional.

That’s similar to the stance taken by some local governments over cooperating with federal officials enforcing immigration laws considered too harsh or illegal. That gave rise to the term “sanctuary city” or county.

Most Second Amendment sanctuary measures fall along these lines.

But a few, including some Virginia localities, declare their right to nullify any state or federal gun laws they consider unconstitutional, according to a Dec. 11 article on the news site Slate.com.

Hall told The Ledger he favored a nullification measure if the Legislature or Congress passed a gun law he considered unconstitutional.

He would not advocate nullifying a law found constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court, Hall said.

“The Supreme Court will be the ultimate decider of the Constitution,” he said.

Polk Sheriff Grady Judd said he was a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and advocates that citizens carry concealed weapons through the state’s licensing process.”

But he said he could not support a local law that instructed him to ignore state and federal gun laws.

“State and federal laws always supersede a county ordinance,” Judd told The Ledger. “What I would do as a law enforcement officer is enforce the laws of the state of Florida and the United States of America.”

Judd said he has reviewed dozens of Second Amendment sanctuary laws across the country and agreed they fall along the three categories outlined above.

Hall distinguished between Second Amendment and immigration sanctuary measures because the latter involved people breaking the law to enter and reside in the U.S., he said.

Gift Certificates – Time is running out

Time is running out to purchase the perfect stocking stuffer for the new shooter in your life.

Gift certificates are the perfect stocking stuffer for the new firearm owner or for the someone who needs a little formal training.

In-Gauge of Polk County currently has gift certificates available for all firearms and self-defense training classes.

Only days remain to order the perfect stocking stuffer for the person in your life who may be receiving a new firearm for Christmas or may have owned one for some time, but never received formal firearms training.

Sales end December 22nd

Gift certificates are available for a little as $35, for our 2 1/2 hour, minimum standards concealed carry class.

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, 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 or gun show concealed carry class provider if they train you in the proper technique of 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 shotgun for home defense.
