Citizen Firearms/ Concealed Carry Weapons

The Citizen Firearms/ Concealed Carry Weapons (CCW) permit course is $200.00. The 20 hours of training teaches you current, safe and effective handgun skills to become proficient in home and self-defense. Learn to protect yourself and the ones you love. The need for additional training and advanced skills is increasing. Many CCW classes in the state fail to teach you the physical skills to shoot accurately. We make sure you are well prepared to handle and carry your weapon. The instructors are Utah State Certified CCW and law enforcement firearms instructors. By using law enforcement instructors we assure our tactics are current and safe.

We are offering advanced citizen firearms training to build on the basic class. As part of the class we will also complete the requirements and application for a Concealed Carry Weapons (CCW) permit for the State of Utah.

All students must pay for the class the day they register, and all registrations must be completed one week before the class begins. When registering please provide the name and caliber of gun you will be bringing to the range, you will also need to bring a holster for it, a sturdy belt, a ball cap, eye and ear protection. (Semi-automatics are recommended) (Jennings and High-Point are not allowed).
