Concealed Carry 1 (CCW-1)

Course Price: $159.00
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 12 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.

      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'm happy to have repeated CCW1 yesterday. As always your instructors are professional & knowledgeable. I find it so helpful to get someone else's eyes on & evaluation of my shooting. Would strongly encourage others to take these classes. Regardless of your own evaluation of your skill level there is always something to be learned. Your classes not just offer shooting skills but offer skills for the defensive mindset, which I see as "protective" mindset. You & your instructors never teach an "offensive" mindset but one that is to protect yourself & loved ones. They teach you to think & react for your safety. I look forward to participating in more training.My Thanks to you & RPD instructors!! (Matt, please teach St.Patty's Day next yr!!!)

      I think the class was great. Everything we did dealt with real life situations out there in the world. Now that you are giving me the knowledge and the skills that I just might need one day, I will do my part to perfect them the best way that I can. To keep it short, just keep doing what you are doing and I am looking forward to the many classes that I will be attending.
