The Colorado Concealed Handgun Permit Class Level I is a four hour comprehensive class on handgun safety, handgun actions, ammunition, and Colorado Concealed Handgun Permit Laws. The class is designed for all levels of shooters. Our class includes discussion on the laws for concealed carry and the use of deadly force. This class stresses the responsibilities of the concealed carry permit holder, safe pistol techniques and different methods of carrying. Completion of this class will give the student a completion certificate necessary when applying for a Colorado Concealed Handgun Permit. You will know the safe handling, loading, and unloading of revolvers and semi-automatic pistols before class is finished.
You do not need to buy a gun for class, you will be taught how to pick a gun. Colorado Law does not require live fire shooting for a permit, but we think it is important. This class also includes one hour of live fire training with an Instructor that is a Double Distinguished Expert in Semi-Auto Pistol and Defensive Pistol 1 with the NRA at no additional charge, many times scheduled on a different day. Many people like to practice the skills they have learned in class, or purchase a handgun before the live fire session. This is a fun way to learn an important skill, the format and content of this class make it like no other offered in this area.
Don’t be fooled by classes that do not give you the information you need to keep yourself and your family safe and out of trouble. This class provides information that other instructors are not teaching. Rick Sindeband has a substantial background in firearms and has hundreds of hours of training in many areas. Don’t risk your freedom or your life on inferior training.
