This is NOT a beginner's class. If you are a beginner, we strongly recommend that you book a private lesson before attempting to pass the shooting qualification.

If you don't the pass the qualification, you will be referred to a private lesson or a reattempt at a later date on a case-by-case basis.

CHANGES to CCW CLASS: To comply with social distancing guidelines, we allow a maximum of 10 students per class, and we use our biggest classroom on the 2nd floor. If you are unable to climb a staircase, please call us to make other arrangements.

TEACHERS: We are no longer offering free CCW classes for teachers.
