We hold our firearm courses at various local outdoor ranges. Courses are conducted at either the Clark County Shooting Park (North) or the Boulder Rifle Pistol Club in Boulder City (South). These facilities allow us to conduct drills and exercises not available at most indoor ranges.
You will leave our class prepared to submit your application to the Sheriff.
Nevada Applications must be submitted to the Sheriff’s Office in person.
Training is completed in one day.
We exceed the minimum state requirements and provide students with additional training and education.
Our students leave the course confident and with a better understanding of their self-defense knowledge and firearm capabilities.
