Choose Between Two Options
- $75 for an eight-hour North Carolina or South Carolina Concealed Carry training package for one (up to a $155 total value)

During eight hours of classroom training (a $60 value), state- and NRA-certified instructor Bob Plyler teaches either North Carolina or South Carolina’s minimum requirements that qualify students to apply for a concealed-carry-handgun permit. In addition to passing a written examination based on the class content, students must also qualify on the range, where they receive a .22 handgun rental with ammo (a $20 value; students may also bring their own gun), range fees (a $15 value), and eye and ear protection (a $10 value). Upon successful completion of both the classroom and range components, students may apply for a CCH permit—any application costs beyond the class training are not included with this deal. Students also get one hour of private follow-up training (a $50 value), scheduled after the conclusion of the CCH class. Classes are limited to 25, and may be added based on demand. Groupon buyers also qualify for 20% off a course package (usually a $250 value) at Acumen Arms Tactical Academy.
Acumen Arms trains out of several shooting ranges, servicing both North and South Carolina.
Acumen Arms' rentals include firearms such as a .22 caliber handgun.
