The United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) offers proven techniques and strategies for the American concealed carrier. This class is aimed at those who are new to handguns and wish to begin carrying concealed, or those who already carry concealed but are uncertain about the legal, physical, financial, and moral ramifications and responsibilities that concealed carriers face in the real world.


You will learn the handgun basics, including nomenclature and anatomy, pistol and ammunition selection, holster types and best practices, home security, legal responsibilities in a defensive shooting, the possible consequences you might face in the aftermath of a defensive shooting, and much more. This is an intensive shooting class that includes classroom and live fire training.


If you're ready to start carrying concealed but aren't sure how to begin, this is the gold standard of concealed carry training for the novice.
