Enhanced Concealed Carry Skills

Course Price: $150.00
Course Times: 8am to 6pm
Course Designer: David S Jenkins

If you are looking to learn true, efficient, and realistic concealed carry skills, mindset and more, this is the training you need! The Enhanced Concealed Carry Skills course is a perfect blend between our Concealed Carry Basics and our Concealed Carry 1! Taking the elements and objectives from both creates the perfect course for you!

This LIVE FIRE course is taught by highly skilled and experienced instructors who love their work. They all know the importance of starting out right; and they all want to help you build a solid foundation so that you will be able to fully enjoy the shooting sports for a long time.

After successfully completing this course, you MAY be able to apply to the county to request the removal of your restrictions. Although there is no guarantee, this course can definitely help your chances. Call for details!

This is not the course if you have never fired a handgun before, or have shot very little. You do need to know how your handgun operates and you need to know how to be safe. Otherwise, you should attend our Concealed Carry Basics course first.

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.

We'll start off by reinforcing the fundamental shooting skills, then we will start working out of your holster!

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.

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 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: or email us.
