$62 for a Conceal-Carry-Handgun Class ($125 Value)

In the approximately eight-hour North Carolina concealed-handgun-carry course, instructors certified by the North Carolina Department of Justice qualify students to apply for a state concealed-handgun permit that has reciprocity in more than 30 states. Classroom work focuses on topics such as legal definitions, cleaning and maintenance of a handgun, handling ammunition, and the principles of basic marksmanship. Students must then pass a written examination and a shooting-proficiency test, composed of landing at least 28 of 40 rounds on the center mass of a silhouette target from 3, 5, and 7 yards away. Each small-group class is scheduled on weekends from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Students must bring their own handguns—no .22 calibers allowed—and at least 50 rounds. They must also bring eye and ear protection, which includes a hat or cap with a brim, and lunch. The class assumes students are familiar with operating their own handgun; those with little to no experience using their own gun are encouraged to take the firearms orientation class first, which is not included with this deal.

Customer Reviews

Very informative class and necessary.

I had not heard of this class before the Groupon, and am very satisfied with my experience. It was a great class, with very competent instructors.

Good Single Day Training and they were flexible with scheduling a group. Focus was from a gun armorer rather than a law enforcement officer approach. It was refreshing.
