Getting a permit to carry concealed weapon class is a very extensive process that involves
intensive training in the usage of firearms, getting a permit licence and gaining complete
knowledge of the implications and usage of firearms. Training can be taken by undertaking
a firearms training certified course, generally conducted by experienced NRA certified
instructors. Each state has its own set of rules with respect to the training hours. But a
general guideline that should be evaluated is that these firearms training courses should
be NRA certified courses.
The NRA is short for National rifle association and is considered as the premium firearms
education organisation. The NRA is synonymous with imparting training and education in
various kinds of firearms training for the purpose of hunting and for regular civilian training.
The NRA follows a standard curriculum, which is generally followed by all the firearms and
concealed carry weapons training classes, across the states in the USA. These certified
courses are conducted by individuals or companies who have been approved to provide
firearms training.Training is imparted by coaches and instructors, who themselves are
NRA certified coaches.
Each state in the U.S has certain regulations. Though the basics of the concealed carry
weapons classes remain same, the training period and federal laws vary from state to
state. The concealed carry weapons class gives an all-round training to the people who
have enrolled in these classes. Having a concealed carry weapon in hand is a big
responsibility, the implications of which are stressed on at every possible level. Mental
preparedness, alertness coupled with mental training is the order of the day. The physical
training focuses on a varied range of topics that include how to handle the different types
of firearms such as the pistol, hand rifle, shot gun etc.; accurate levels of shooting without
missing the target; Mastering the techniques of drawing the handgun and putting it back in
the holster with great agility, to name a few. Rigorous physical training is imparted ranging
from 8 hours to 16 hours. Apart from these, aspects such as Handgun Safety, Principles of
Marksmanship, Care for the firearms, Safe storage of firearms at home, federal laws,
range exercises, legal self-defence, etc. are also stressed.
The NRA certified coursesare hence very important as any firearms course should be
approved by the NRA and should follow the NRA given curriculum with a NRA certified
instructor at the helm. It always pays off to do a little research about the concealed carry
weapons classes and then zero in on the right training institute. The steps involved in the
process of getting a concealed carry permit is firstly, the identification of a good firearms
training institute followed by the training at the firearms training class and then applying for
the concealed carry permit by paying the requisite fees and then getting the permit, which
usually takes around four weeks.
The concealed carry weapons permit is actually the licence for one to use the concealed
carry weapons for the sake of self-defence and self-protection. Each state has a set of
eligibility requirements that the applicant should fulfil, in order to get the concealed carry
permit. But the general eligibility rules include being a US citizen, residing in the US, over
21 years of age and the ability to demonstrate firearms competency. There are certain
conditions where in an applicant does not become eligible for a CCW permit, such as
being a fugitive, record of alcohol or drug abuse, physically incapable of holding the
firearms, renouncement of US citizenship, a felony conviction, conviction for crime
Getting the concealed carry permit allows the applicant to carry the CCW in person, away
from public eye. But one should remember that there are certain places like government
buildings, schools, courtrooms, bars etc. where it is not permitted to carry the CCW.
