There is no prerequisite for this class.
This 4 hour class is for the individual who is deciding how a firearm(s) will fit into their personal or home protection plan. This first step can be overwhelming for some and easy for others. Either way the Patriot staff will guide you thru the decision making process and answer every question you have.
This is a non-live fire class and will teach you the basic methods and strategies to carry concealed and to defend yourself and your family in your home and out and about.
You do not need a firearm to take this class as we will have plenty of firearms and holsters on hand but if you already have a firearm and holster please bring them. There will be safe to lock up the ammo. You are not required to bring your own firearm and holster but it is recommended that you do especially if you have specific questions and concerns on your own set-up. Please note that live ammunition is never allowed in the classroom. I do have safes on location.
Leave with a valuable USCCA book ($50 value) and drills you can do right at home.
