Choose from Three Options

  • $39 for concealed-handgun training class that fulfills state CCDW-certification requirements for one (an $85 value)

  • $75 for an advanced firearm skills class for one (a $150 value)

NRA instructors lead an eight-hour concealed-carry course that fulfills the state's requirements for classroom time, range qualification, and testing. Instructors supply all classroom materials (range fees may be extra). Three to four weeks after the course, participants receive a certificate in the mail and take it to the county sheriff's office, which may accept their application and issue a CCDW license in approximately three to four weeks.

The advanced class builds on this foundation. Instructors teach students to draw from their side holster, maintain the proper mindset, and fine-tune their targeting skills. Participants in this course must supply their own pistol, two extra magazines, a fitted holster, a brimmed hat, a gun-maintenance kit, and ear and eye protection. They must also hold a state-issued CCDW license, have completed an NRA basic pistol course, or qualify the day of the class.

For a minimum of eight students, one of Firearm Safety and Security Training LLC.'s instructors will travel to a home, business, community center, or other location and teach a class onsite. The chosen location must have electricity and a bathroom.

Thank You for coming! Also, pay attention to the current Ky legislation regarding CCDW. Lots of good things potentially coming.

The class was awesome. Joshua really knows his stuff, makes the class relative, and really emphasizes gun safety. I look forward to taking the advanced class. Well worth paying full price for.

I think this class was very beneficial and I would recommend it to anyone considering getting their CCDW license. Thank you Groupon for offering this deal! I had been wanting to get certified for a long time and having the cost be $39 instead of $85 gave me the kick I needed to go ahead and do it. Joshua McFadden definitely puts safety first and he is there to help you pass this course and feel better prepared when you actually do get your license. I would recommend that you offer this deal again in the future! Thanks!
