For ages 21 and older covering:
- Handgun Nomenclature and Safe Handling Procedures
- Ammunition Knowledge and the Fundamentals of Pistol Shooting
- Child Access Prevention and Home Storage
- Firearm Cleaning and Maintenance
- Use of Deadly Force and Conflict Resolution
- Actual Live Fire Qualification at the Range
Details: This is a LA State Police MANDATED 9-hour course that includes classroom training and live-fire qualification at the range. A professional power-point presentation and training videos are utilized during the classroom segment.
The class is from 9:00 A.M. until 6:00 P.M. but I ask students to arrive no later than 8:45 A.M. to ensure we start on time.
NOTE: THIS CLASS IS NOT JUST FOR THOSE WHO WISH TO GET A CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT. IT IS ALSO A GREAT CLASS FOR ANYONE WHO OWNS A HANDGUN; FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO ENSURE THAT THEY ARE KNOWLEDGEABLE ON GUN SAFETY AS WELL AS THE APPLICABLE LOUISIANA LAWS AND STATUTES. It is also an excellent class for new shooters as much of the NRA Basic Pistol course is included in the beginning. The bulk of the presentation includes Power Point slides from the U.S.C.C.A. (United States Concealed Carry Association). The goal is to leave as safe, responsible, law-abiding and confident gun owners whether you choose to carry or not. Students will receive the required Certificate (NEEDED TO APPLY FOR THE PERMIT) for satisfactorily completing the course.
RENEWALS: Same material is covered per the State Police but in a slightly shorter, half day class (from 12:45 P.M. until 6:00 P.M.)
The USCCA’s book “Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals” (considered by many as the Concealed Carry ‘Bible’ is also available for purchase at the class for $30. Note: This book is sold at a retail price of $35.00* each if ordered on-line. (*does NOT include taxes, postage & handling) so you save $8 or $9.
So, don’t delay! Try to reserve your spot within 10 to 14 days prior to the date of the class you would like to attend. Please note if you have a preferred date in the instructions area of your online payment. Classes can actually be held on any day except Monday once we have 6 or more persons registered for a specific date.
