Qualification Courses


How much skill do you have, really? How do you know? Can you prove it?

There are many reasons for taking industry-standard shooting qualification tests, including:

  • Legally, proving your skill to a jury may not be possible unless you’ve passed a common test
  • There’s really no way to know you’ve improved unless you can judge yourself against an independent standard
  • You gain confidence in friends/family/security team members when everyone has qualified to a set standard

TO BE CLEAR: This “class” does not teach any of the skills necessary for passing any of these qualifications. That’s what Level 1 , Level 2 , Level 3 , and Level 4 range classes are all about. This “class” is merely to document skills you have.

This “class” is a 2-hour block in which Carry On Colorado will administer the qualification test of your choosing, safely at the range. There will be no real training involved here at all – only enough instruction so that everyone can safely complete the qualification. We can administer virtually any qualification that exists, but some of the most common are:

  • Police Pistol Qualification (PPQ), generic, widely used as industry standard for law enforcement personnel
  • LFI-1 used by Massad Ayoob and others
  • FBI Pistol Qualification
  • FBI Pistol Qualification, Instructor
  • Modified Navy Qualification (MNQ) for rifle
  • Texas CHL/LTC Qualification Course
  • Clandestine Carry Pistol (CCP) Qualification as developed by John Mosby
  • USMC Pistol Qualification Course
  • Colorado Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Handgun Qualification Course
  • Georgia Semi-Auto Pistol Qualification Course
  • FDLE (Florida Department of Law Enforcement) Law Enforcement Officer Firearms Qualification Standard
  • FAA Air Marshal Pistol Qualification
  • Any of the NRA Marksmanship Qualifications
  • Other

If you have a group that needs to qualify or if you’re interested in having court-recognizable shooting standards under your belt, let us know.

Round count and other equipment needed varies somewhat depending on which qualification or qualifications you will be shooting, but as always, the following is required range gear:

  • Your self-defense pistol
  • Your normal belt holster (not in a purse/backpack/etc.)
  • Magazine pouches capable of holding at least two magazines
  • Hearing protection
  • Eye protection
  • Hat with a brim
  • Seasonally appropriate clothing, appropriate footwear (no flip flops)
  • Cooler with water and snacks
  • Folding chair
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug repellent is recommended

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.
