While the same course material
is taught consistently from course to course, each classroom lecture
session is unique to the particular group of students being taught
at that time because of the varying depths of conversation with
questions and answer. The classroom lecture generally runs 4-5
hours, but we DO NOT rush the lecture and we finish when all
information has been provided and questions have been answered!

Again, as with each classroom
lecture session, our range sessions are unique to the particular
group of students being taught. Generally, range sessions runs

training portion of the range session:

- Carrying Concealed (Placement,
clothing, drawing, etc...)
- Combat Marksmanship
(Time and Resources Permitting)
I do or do not have a lot of experience
with firearms. What should I expect during the range session?
Students who have a lot of
experience with firearms will most likely advance more quickly than
their peers, who may have little to no experience with firearms.
This is normal, and expected, however, we have unique way of
challenging our experienced shooters so they don't get bored, and at
the same time, we have unique ways of teaming up our instructors to
provide additional support for those shooters who may need the extra
help. Regardless of your skill level, we guarantee you receive
the highest quality of training and attention from our instructors
to meet your needs. Our goal is to make your firearms training
experience a positive one, in a safe and relaxed environment, so
that you will learn quickly and develop good habits that create
efficient muscle memory.
How much will we
actually shoot while on the range?
It varies from course to
course, but we guarantee you will complete the minimum for Missouri
state requirements! All students will complete our live-fire
practice session which is 50 rounds total, and then complete our
qualification course of fire which is 20
rounds of ammunition. If time and resources permit, we will
use your remaining ammunition to complete some practical combat
marksmanship exercise. Generally, we spend 6 hours on the

What happens if I fail the course?
is a rare occasion that someone fails our Concealed Carry Course.
you fail the course due to skill level (live-fire qualification or
written exam) we will review with you the outcome and give you an
opportunity to retake the tests if time permits. If time does not
