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 indoor ranges.

The cost is $99.  The material covered is serious, but the class is as entertaining, fast-paced, and enjoyable as possible.  Class starts promptly, so be sure to arrive at least 15 minutes early!

You must pay online with your credit card to ensure your seat!

 

These days a lot of people are asking “Why 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 and KSP-approved CCDW instructor is not only to teach you principles of marksmanship.  It informs you about laws regarding the possession of and employment of firearms in a self-defense situation as well as many other considerations.  This is critically important information.
  • There are also advantages when traveling to or through some states.  States offering 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 streamlined by the possession of a valid KY CCDW license.
  • Please note that the Kentucky concealed-carry laws apply to all deadly weapons, not just firearms, and Kentucky clearly defines what constitutes a deadly weapon.  For example, a blackjack, sap, or brass knuckles are considered deadly weapons, but not a “hunting knife” per se.

 

We conduct the our Kentucky Concealed Carry Deadly Weapons Course in accordance with guidelines and regulations as approved by the Kentucky State Police.
