Concealed Carry 1 (CCW-1)

Course Price: $149.00
Course Times: 9 hours
Course Designer: Dave Jenkins


Dave Jenkins and the instructors of Rochester Personal Defense, LLC have developed the Concealed Carry 1 course to introduce you to the idea of carrying your handgun for self defense and want to start you with the skills necessary.



You will get to practice all of the skills with an unloaded handgun until you are comfortable, then you will get to go live on the range.


 

Even if you have done other training or shoot a lot, you may want to consider this class to shake the rust off or refine your skills more. You can never practice or train enough.


NOTE: Please review the Required Equipment list below. If you do not have something on the list, contact us before the class. Arriving without the complete list of specified gear will mean that you will not be able to fully participate in the training.

More importantly, this is NOT a basic level course. You MUST have completed
an NRA Basic Pistol class, our Concealed Carry Basics, or the Concealed Carry Basics Refresher within the past 6 months,  or the equivalent training or shooting experience prior to attending this course.

WHY do you require a prerequisite course for this one? Mainly for safety and secondly for the continuity of the skill training and self defense concepts we teach. Safety is highly stressed throughout this course and if your skills are not up to par, you may be a safety risk. This is a 'Level 2' type course. Skipping the important required prerequisite course will mean that you'll either be a bit behind and it will take a bit of work to catch up, you'll always have a missing gap in your training, or the class will have to lag until our instructors can catch you on on the skills that are required to participate in this course.

THIS COURSE CAN BE USED TO APPLY FOR A FLORIDA NON RESIDENT PERMIT


Note: As of 4/4/2012, ANY holster that utilizes the index or trigger finger of the shooting hand to disengage a locking device to release the handgun is now disallowed from ANY Rochester Personal Defense, LLC class, training, event, or any function that we host or have involvement with. I am also implementing the same on Tuesday Night’s CCW Shoot. For more information, please visit the following page: http://www.safeinrochester.com/serpa.php or email us.

      Frequently Asked Questions

       



      Defensive Pistol Skills 101 (DPS101)


      Q. Do I have to complete the NRA Basic Pistol before attending the DPS 101 class?
      A. Although the NRA Basic Pistol is our preferred prerequisite, any other similar training and education would work. What we are looking for is that you can operate your handgun competently, are familiar and can demonstrate the Fundamental Firearm Safety Rules. (Treat all firearms as if they are loaded. Never point your firearm at anything you are not willing to shoot. Keep your finger off the trigger until you have decided to fire.)

      Q. Do I need to have my own handgun to attend?
      A. Yes. We advocate training on the equipment that you would eventually carry and use, so it is a good idea to have the proper gear, such as a well made handgun, a quality holster, at least 1 spare magazine, and a good belt to support your carry gear.


      Testimonials:

      I recently completed DPS 201/301 at RPD. Like all of the courses Ive attended, Dave and his team provided quality education and individualized attention that improved my skills and pushed me to think outside the box and respond instinctively. The basic skills that had been learned in previous classes were honed and tuned as bad habits were broken and new skills were added. I know that I am smoother and more reflexive than I was before the class and the new skills Ive learned are being integrated into my practice drills. So far I have taken RPDs Utah/Florida permit class, NRA Basic Pistol, Defensive Pistol 101, Defensive Pistol 201 and Defensive Pistol 301. Chris, Ray, Frank, Tink, Matt, Wendy and Dave have all provided outstanding and clear instruction in the safe and effective use of firearms coupled with plenty of range time. Mary has been most helpful when Ive called with a scheduling problem or billing question. I highly recommend RPDs courses to individuals of all skill levels who are looking for professional instruction and have a desire to improve how they safely and effectively handle themselves and their firearms in a variety of situations. I am looking forward to additional classes such as Low Light Handgun, Personal Protection Inside the home, Vehicle Defense Tactics and as my skills improve the NRA Pistol Instructor, NRA Range Safety Officer and of course Secret Squirrel Training.

      Dave, On behalf of myself, Anthony Pata and Matt Moore, I'd like to take a minute to commend your program and especially your staff! We took the CCW1 (2/20/16) with Butch McDonald, Bob Rathke and Chris Schlierf; in Canadaigua. I can't thank you enough for your guys. On a personal note, I'm extremely new to handguns. I have no family members that have ever hunted or been into pistols so I was very self-conscious and nervous about the classes. Every one of these guys have the skills to not only take the topic very serious but do so in a way that brings humor and kindness as well. They took the time to get to know each of us in the class by name, learn our personalities, and gave quiet corrections. The instructors have a fantastic relationship with each other too which creates an amazing environment. Their professionalism, camaraderie and respect are contagious and because of that the atmosphere of the class is one of encouragement, safety and enjoyment. Your curriculum is well thought out too. It is clear that a lot of time and effort has gone into developing a progression of skills with real life scenarios mixed in. Not only are we getting better at the basics of shooting a pistol, we are being introduced to the overwhelming emotions that we could face in the real world. We are pushed to think about "our plans" and asked to get out of our comfort zones a little and begin to prepare for a real life encounter to protect our families, God forbid. Carrying a handgun is a huge responsibility and unfortunately, a growing necessity. I wish more of the "good guys" would take these classes! The three of us have had such a great time, can feel our confidence growing, are developing a deeper respect for the decision to carry, and are starting to crave more training and time with your instructors that we will be signing up for the CCW2 and CCW3 weekend combo. Again, I can't thank you enough for the HIGH quality training you are providing for the average person. It is truly appreciated!
