About the Kentucky CCDW Class
The class will run from 8:00am to 2-4pm depending on the number of questions and size of the class. The class curriculum and format is universal in the state of Kentucky. The class includes in-class demonstrations and review of real life scenarios. An additional four hours are spent going through the core concealed carry class material which covers the proper way to clean both revolvers and semi-automatic pistols, equipment for the maintenance and cleaning of pistols, what to do if you are pulled over by a police officer, and the laws concerning the carrying of concealed deadly weapons and the lawful use of deadly force in protecting ones self and loved ones among other things. Students can follow along in the CCDW Booklet provided. We will also review “The Four Fatal Mistakes That Got A Police Officer Killed in a Deadly Encounter.” There is a 25 question, OPEN BOOK, test in which students must get a score of 70% to pass. Following this classroom portion we will run the qualification shooting (live fire) portion of the class on our private range. Students are required to fire 20 rounds at a B-21 target at 7 yards or 21 feet from the students. Students are required to hit 11 out of 20 to qualify. Students that fail their written test or live fire qualification have a second chance at both, either the same day or within 30 days of the class. Please do not worry about the tests. We will spend all day preparing you and will be there to guide you!
- You do NOT need to own a pistol to take the class. For a small fee the day of the class you can rent a pistol from the instructor and this is a great way to try different guns before you make your own purchasing decision.
- Ammunition Scare? Due to the high cost and scarcity of ammunition several .22 Caliber Semi-Automatic Pistols are available to rent from the instructor for $20 and that includes ammo.
*Military and Veteran discount available for those actively serving or honorably discharged from the US Military. Please contact us via phone or email to receive your military discount.
