If you’ve been considering obtaining your Kentucky CCDW permit, now’s the time! Classes are held in our conference room and our state-of-the-art live-fire ranges.

The cost is $99.  The material covered is serious, but the class is as entertaining, fast-paced, and enjoyable as possible.

You are strongly encouraged to pay online with your credit card to ensure your seat!


These days a lot of people are asking why would you bother with a CCDW license when Kentucky has instituted Constitutional Carry?

That’s a fair question, but here’s a few points to consider…

  • The purpose of a class with a state-licensed CCDW instructor is not (necessarily) to teach you how to shoot.  It teaches you the law regarding the possession of and employment of firearms in a self defense situation. This is critically-important information.
  • There are also considerations when traveling.  States which offer reciprocity with regard to a concealed carry permit from another state, are under no obligation to recognize other “constitutional carry” states in lieu of a permit.
  • The purchase of a firearm from a KY firearms dealer is generally simplified by the possession of a KY CCDW license.
  • Please note that the Kentucky concealed carry laws apply to all deadly weapons, not just firearms, and Kentucky has some unusual definitions of what is and isn’t a deadly weapon. For example, a blackjack or set of brass knuckles would be considered a deadly weapon, but not a hunting knife per se.


We conduct the Kentucky State Concealed Carry Deadly Weapons Course in accordance with guidelines and regulations directed from the Kentucky State Police.
