8 Tips for Carrying Concealed–Part 1

 

Women-Only: Introduction to Firearms

 

This course is designed for women to familiarize themselves with common firearms used for home defense. Topics include Maryland and Federal firearms laws, home safety, firearms operation, ammunition selection, fundamentals of shooting and firearms maintenance.

This course satisfies Maryland’s Handgun Qualification License–HQL–requirements. The HQL is required to purchase a handgun in Maryland.

Other Courses

Private Training

 

Individual professional training tailored to fit your personal needs. We complete a pre-training interview with you about your firearms experience and skills and then arrange for an hour of training on a live-fire range. On the range, we do a real-time assessment of your current level of skill. Then we tailor our instruction to build on your current skills and to manage or eliminate any issues that we see. We will demonstrate proper grip, breath control, sight alignment, sight picture, stance, and trigger manipulation. You will then have the opportunity to practice what you learned under our careful supervision. Your physical and emotional safety during training are our top priority.

Utah Wear and Carry Permit

 

Satisfies the non-resident training requirement to apply for the Utah CCW permit. This permit is considered one of the best CCW permits due to reciprocity with 31 States. This course is bundled with our Maryland Concealed Carry Course and then we add-on instruction on Utah firearms law.
