Learning to properly handle a firearm is a prerequisite for a career as a police officer or dastardly hot-air-balloon racer. Get a head start with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $29 for a two-hour concealed-weapon-license class, application completion, and notary service for one (a $64 value)
- $55 for the above class and package for two (a $128 value)
During each class, instructors lead hands-on training at an air-conditioned facility. Tuition includes a gun to use during the course, the application, forms with notary service, and a certificate of completion within two hours to apply for a Florida concealed-weapon license; it does not include government fees associated with the submission and processing of the permit. A passport photo and fingerprinting are both required and are not included with this Groupon; fingerprinting can be done at a local law-enforcement agency after completing the class. Class sizes are limited and are typically scheduled Mondays, Saturdays, and Sundays, with women's-only classes on select dates.
At each Gun School franchise, instructors with backgrounds in law enforcement, the military, and professional security teach CCW-qualifying courses and NRA firearm classes, such as the Basic Pistol Shooting course and the Eddie Eagle GunSafe program for kids. They also lead tactical training with resources such as the Canadian Academy of Practical Shooting DVD system, which presents dramatized scenarios to help students improve their reaction time and practice drawing from their holster. In addition to training, Gun School's team organizes the Shooters' Club, which grants members privileges such as discounts on ammo, range admissions, and massages for tired trigger fingers.
