This course is a live-fire class held entirely at the range. It is also a great add-on to the Level 1 - Colorado Concealed Handgun Permit Class. If you want more hands-on instruction and practice with your concealed carry setup (or if you're trying to figure out what works for you), here's your chance to practice drawing from concealment and shooting in a safe, instructor-led environment - something you can't do at most shooting ranges. We review the basics of pistol shooting including our two underlying shooting fundamentals (stable shooting platform and trigger control) as well as many of the common concealed carry skills like drawing and re-holstering. We also cover something that everyone who carries a handgun should understand and be able to master - one-handed shooting.
At the end of this range sessions each student will have the opportunity to shoot our Basic Qualification Course. We can provide each student with a qualification certificate upon request.
Prerequisite: the Level 1 - Colorado Concealed Handgun Permit Class (or equivalent) or the NRA Basic Pistol Course. This course picks up where these other classes leave off and is for students who are either new to concealed carry or want a safe place to practice techniques that are forbidden at most local ranges.

Don't have your own gun yet? Consider renting one from us! Just be sure to purchase the correct number of Handgun Rentals along with your order, then contact us for the details of what you would like to rent (semi-auto pistol, revolver, 9mm Luger, etc.). Handgun rentals are $15 per gun per person.
For PRIVATE CLASSES, give us a call at 720-608-1911. We generally require 10 students for a private class, but it can be a lot of fun taking a self-defense class with people you already know well... and you'll save some money! Our pricing for private classes is actually cheaper per person than our standard classes. We can teach either at our usual location or at your facility, as long as your range is safe and legal. If you don't have 10 people for a private class, our pricing structure falls under our private instruction rates - see our Gun Lessons page for more detail.
