Colorado Concealed Handgun Permit Class


Concealed Handgun Permit Class

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.

Don’t Buy A Gun for Class

You do not need to buy a gun for class, you will be taught how to pick a gun for self-defense. 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.

Recommended reading for anyone who is serious about learning gun laws

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. Many Instructors in Southern Colorado do not have the credentials and are not certified in Personal Protection In and Outside of the Home and the Advanced Pistol Instructor Rating. Don’t risk your freedom or your life on inferior training.

A firearm is not required to take Level 1, but if you own a firearm you should bring it to class. Many people want to learn about handguns and how to pick the right one for self defense. A firearm that is a gift or a hand-me-down may or may not be the right one for you. Level 1 instruction is not an NRA program. The NRA does not want Instructors teaching Gun Laws in their classes, and this is an important part of your Concealed Handgun Permit Training.

Coopers Color Codes of AwarenessOn my way to shoot with a student this afternoon  I noticed several people walking in the park. These people were glued to their cell phones and had no idea what was going on around them. I see it in the grocery store parking lot when I go to the store. What is it about be aware of your surroundings that people do not understand. The color code of awareness serves as a way to pay attention to possible threats. As developed originally By Col. Jeff Cooper they are as follows:

White: Unaware and unprepared. If attacked in Condition White, the only thing that may save you is the inadequacy or ineptitude of your attacker.

Yellow: Relaxed alert. No specific threat situation. Your mindset is that “today could be the day I may have to defend myself”. You are simply aware that the world is a potentially unfriendly place and that you are prepared to defend yourself, if necessary.

Orange: Specific alert. Something is not quite right and has your attention. Your radar has picked up a specific alert. You shift your primary focus to determine if there is a threat Staying in Orange can be a bit of a mental strain, but you can stay in it for as long as you need to. If the threat proves to be nothing, you shift back to Condition Yellow.

Red: Condition Red is fight. Your mental trigger (established back in Condition Orange) has been tripped. “If ‘X’ happens I will have to do ‘Y’.

The tragedy that happened in Orlando could not have been stopped by any of these codes, but it might have saved a life or two. We are living in a dangerous world and you need to remember that typical “soft targets” are civilian sites where people congregate in large numbers; examples include national monuments,parades, hospitals, schools, sporting arenas, hotels, cultural centers, movie theaters, cafés and restaurants, places of worship, nightclubs, shopping centers, and transportation sites (such as railway stations, buses, rail systems, and ferries).

I am not suggesting that you should be afraid or change the things you like to do. I am suggesting that you can be more aware of your surroundings and be prepared to act appropriately. That could mean defending yourself or your family, or it could mean avoiding or removing yourself from the threat or situation altogether.  John Farnam  a nationally known firearm instructor coined the phrase don’t have stupid friends, don’t go stupid places, and don’t do stupid things.

Training is available for those that wish to defend themselves and their families contact me to arrange a program that works for you.

How Difficult Is Concealed Handgun Class?

Concealed Handgun ClassWhen considering a  Concealed Handgun Class , people often think about how difficult the class will be, and also how long it will take them to get through the concealed handgun class. When it comes to being a trained concealed handgun owner, this is a question that is often asked, and rightly so. The truth is that handgun class isn’t a walk in the park, but it isn’t something that’s incredibly difficult either. Obviously everyone will have a different view on this because some things come more naturally to certain people and everybody has their own gifts and talents. With that said though, Concealed Handgun Class is something that’s generally not viewed as incredibly difficult or something with a high failure rate. People usually do quite well in their handgun class, provided they devote enough time to paying attention and take their education seriously.

Concealed Handgun Class Can Be Fun

Because people generally have time and money invested in these situations, they tend to put in a lot of effort and work hard into the class. There are some barriers to doing well in handgun class, and these are usually the same barriers that exist with any education class. Obviously if you have a learning disability or something else that makes it tough for you to take in and comprehend information, you might have some trouble with your Concealed Handgun Class. It’s important to always remember thought that your instructors are here for you, and that’s what you are paying for,  so if you have any questions at any time, you can’t be shy about asking them. One of the worst things that you can do is sit back and stay quiet when you don’t understand the course material or need more help with something. Most instructors for handgun class make themselves available outside of normal class time too, either by phone or by email or some other means of communication. They often do this so students have every opportunity to talk to them and make sure that they comprehend the material.Keep in mind that you sign up at a particular school, you can ask to talk to them about the program. This helps to ensure your success because you’ll know if they seem like nice, readily accessible people who are willing to help. If you have a bad feeling that the instructors aren’t nice or don’t seem to genuinely care about the students, then you can keep looking for another school because the quality of the instructors is a big factor in your overall success and satisfaction with any Concealed Handgun Class.
