The Level 2 – Beyond the CCW class is designed for students that already have, or are in the process of getting, their Colorado Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP). This class picks up where the Basic Class leaves off and is geared to “real world” concealed carry topics.
Here’s a secret about Concealed Handgun Permit classes: they don’t train you how to defend yourself. Too many CCW classes are either far too short to really be useful, they have content controlled by a guy behind a desk 9 states away, the instructors are afraid to teach you real-world skills for fear of legal retribution, or the instructors simply just do not understand fundamentals of self-defense. Using a firearm for self-defense means more than just putting nice, neat little holes in paper from 10 yards. This class is where we start taking classroom knowledge and turning it into useful information.
This Level 2 class is focused on the “gun stuff.” For a different side of the self-defense coin, check out our Self-Protection Classes.”
A prerequisite is our Level 1 – Colorado Concealed Handgun Permit Class or equivalent.
Topics in this class include:
- The Mindset – the WHY
- Holsters / Carry Positions – the WHERE
- Concealed Carry Obstacles
- Presentation – how fast can YOU draw? – the HOW
- The Tueller Principle
- Intro to Movement and Tactics
- Every Day Carry (EDC)
- Different flashlight techniques
- How long does it take YOU to draw from concealment?
- Other real-world scenarios
- Students will receive a course completion certificate.
Items to bring to class: pen/paper for taking notes, your normal concealed carry setup with your pistol (recommended; we’re actually practicing [and timing!!] your presentation), and a great attitude! (NO LIVE AMMO)
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 one of our usual locations or at your facility, as long as there is enough room for everyone to take notes comfortably, an appropriate television with audio, and room for the instructor with our visual aids. We’ve taught at churches, homes, meeting rooms, offices, hotel banquet rooms, etc. 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.
