HEY! Think about this: There's a lot of talk about "gun control". One of the "laundry list" items the other side wants is "Universal Background Checks." In North Carolina, if you have a concealed handgun permit, you already have your background check in your pocket!
I see those ads on Facebook, and I get the emails, declaring that you can "get started on the process" to obtain your CC permit good in 2/3rds of the country! That's not totally true! It is true that you can start the process. You will be taking a 20 minute, online "class" for "free". You will pay a fee to get the certificate. That certificate will not get you a CC permit in North Carolina. It can be used to obtain a non-resident permit from other states, like Virginia, but it will not allow you to carry in states that don't recognize that permit. You will not be able to purchase in any state, either.
The "training" will not prepare you to carry, or use force legally. The class I teach is a professional presentation of all aspects of firearms ownership, safety, marksmanship and law of self defense. You will be certified to apply for the NC Concealed Carry Handgun Permit which will allow you to carry in 38 states, and allow you to purchase in North Carolina!
You get what you pay for!
I am teaching 3 classes per week with alternating days week to week. Class sizes are limited to 4 people for social distancing. I am booked full through June and July. There are seats available on weekdays, and Saturdays in September. All of that means that there are plenty of opportunities to obtain your training certificate to apply for the NC Concealed Carry Handgun Permit through Hitting the Mark Firearms Training!
People are waiting to get into a class that has 20, 30 and more students! I teach more classes, on more people's schedules. Therefore, my classes are smaller - 1 to 6 people, typically.
And, people are waiting to take a class and pay $100, $150 and more for the same class! Amazing!!! My classes are $80. I provide the gun and ammunition so you don't need to even have a gun!
I know: It sounds to good to be true. But, it is true! I've been teaching these classes since June of 2009. Over 950 classes, more than 2700 students have passed through this classroom. They were beginners and pros, men and women, doctors, nurses, airline pilots, hairdressers, food service workers, police officers, military officers, pastors, liberals, conservatives, people from all walks of life, all races.
And, they refer their friends, family and co-workers to me! Now, there's a source of amazement to me! What does that tell you?
Some of those classes were even scheduled for odd times. There have been classes which were 2 sessions, 3 session, on different days, even spread across 3 weeks! That one was 3 hours on 3 Tuesdays. I am flexible and able to work within YOUR schedule.
I can't make it any easier for you! Isn't it time to giterdone!
North Carolina Concealed Carry - Handgun (NC CCH)
This course is the North Carolina Justice Academy Model Course which has been approved by the North Carolina Criminal Justice Education & Training Standards Commission. Completion of this course earns the participant the certificate required by NC General Statutes to obtain a Concealed Carry - Handgun Permit. This course covers:
Legal Issues Governing Concealed Handgun Carry and The Use of Deadly Force updated to reflect the changes in the law since December 1, 2011, including the recent changes with House Bills 650 (12/1/2011), 843 (10/1/2012) and 937 (10/1/2013).
Safe Gun Handling, Concealed Carry Safety, Safe Storage, Cleaning and Maintenance, Marksmanship Fundamentals, Presentation Techniques, In-Depth Basic Firearms Function, How Ammunition Works, and Range Safety.
Carrying a concealed handgun is an awesome responsibility. The consequences of improperly wielding such dangerous power demands participants be highly responsible, deeply considerate of others and genuinely honest in their commitments. Participants must be prepared mentally, morally and spiritually for the careful consideration of the lifestyle of carrying a concealed firearm.
