Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

If I purchase a course for two, do we have to be married? I have a friend and we would both be interested in signing up. Does this particular Groupon deal cover target practice and if so, do we need to bring our own guns for this course or are some supplied? What kind of guns are covered by having a concealed carry permit? What additional fees are required to get the Iowa and Arizona permits after taking this course? Thanks Paul

A:

Purchasing for Two means ANY two people...related or otherwise as we know most people enjoy making a family event of it (13yrs+ with parent allowed) or with a friend even if its just for the education and not to apply for a permit after.**** We have separate Learn Load and Shoot basic and ADAT Defensive Handgun Courses that our students can purchase at HUGE discounted rates...but it is NOT included with this deal.**** We supply all supplies needed and again this is an instructional class with NO live fire as it is not a requirement given the type of permit that Iowa offers.*** Coverage on revolver and semi-auto as those are the only two types that the majority will attempt to conceal and as for costs etc. we go over that in class!!!

Q:

I am looking for this training in Lincoln NE. Do you know of anything in Lincoln?

Kyla G.  asked on  Oct 15, 2012

A:

Very sorry, but this specific deal is only available in Des Moines and Elkhart.

You can view all of today's deals by going to Groupon.com and clicking "All Deals" at the top of your city's page. Unfortunately, if a deal is not currently listed, then it is not available for purchase.

Brette V.  from  Groupon  replied on  Oct 15, 2012

A:

Hi Kyla, Our course if purchased WILL help you to qualify for the ARIZONA permit only...its a permit that with OUR course either online or in class can qualify ANYONE that is a United States Citizen 21+ and who also passes the background checks.**** NE requires additional live fire training which we do offer but unfortunately some states set up "added barriers" that require already National and Internationally Certified Instructors to do a "state run" process of certifying...its really just a money maker and is actually very sad to see. Why would Nationally/Internationally Certified Instructors want to spend more money/time on just one State???**** Again, the course will qualify you whether you take ONLINE or in person for the Arizona Permit which will then allow you to carry in ALL the states it covers except your home state of NE because every home state wants you to get "their" permit as well.**** We do not have any affiliates in the NE area at this time

Q:

Does taking this course get you the certification and permit to carry a weapon?

Scott H.  asked on  Oct 15, 2012

A:

This course qualifies students to apply for Iowa and Arizona concealed-carry permit, however it does not include the actual certification.

Brette V.  from  Groupon  replied on  Oct 15, 2012

A:

Hi Scott *Same question same answer as another students!* No one but the STATE approves your application by way of the Sheriff's Office who conducts the background search on Criminal History and Mental Health History...in our SHALL ISSUE state if your clear on those parts, have proof of taking a course like the one mentioned in this deal and you meet the age requirement then you should have no issue obtaining the permit.**** They have 30 DAYS in which to process you but many counties do it faster but you do need to apply to the county that you reside. *** Our courses far EXCEED the requirements set by the state and far EXCEED what 99% of Instructors across the Country can offer in way of education outside of the usual "basics on firearm safety" that all of us teach.

Q:

Will I be able to apply and receive my Concealed carry permit after successful completion of this course? (passing the background checks etc.)

Ken L.  asked on  Oct 15, 2012

This course will prepare you to apply for Iowa and Arizona concealed-carry permits.

Q:

I already have a concealed carry permit for Iowa. Can you tell me how much it will cost to apply for one in AZ? I believe there is an extra cost besides the course cost for appling for AZ carry permit. Is that correct? Thank you

Odus  asked on  Oct 15, 2012

A:

Hello Odus, Technically if you already have the certification you can apply directly for the Arizona Permit without any further certification however...our conceal carry course is unlike any other as I teach very specific Conceal Carry and Self Defense Knowledge that NO ONE else is able to share! I'm one of just 20 active and Certified Center Axis Relock Instructors across the Country and my courses show case by student/teacher demonstration why traditional shooting techniques FAIL for self defense...read more on our about page at adatccw.com. The course is very much worth while to take as you also get DISCOUNTS as an ADAT Student Family member for our other courses which will have you save about DOUBLE what your paying just to get this deal!!! Otherwise, feel free to just go to my site adatccw.com and hit the ONLINE COURSE PAGE where you will get all the info on how to apply for the Arizona Permit as you will need to actually call them to get the package sent to you.
