About the Event
Beginner's are welcome!!
This 2-day course satisfies Maryland's Wear & Carry 16-hour training requirement. It is also recommended, but not required, to carry a firearm in Pennsylvania. We will also complete the requirements to apply for a non-resident concealed carry permit in Utah, Virginia & Florida.
This class provides students with information pertaining to situational awareness, conflict avoidance, and why seconds matter. You will have the opportunity to discuss a variety of firearms & other options to ensure you have the best tools for your self-defense plan. You will learn how to master the correct building blocks and shooting fundamentals in order to turn correct and consistent practice into muscle memory. We will spend time perfecting your grip, stance, trigger control and teach you to draw from a holster.
We will explain Maryland & Pennsylvania firearm, transportation, and use of force laws. You are provided with a framework of information so that you are better prepared to face a defensive situation mentally, legally, and financially. Each student will learn about different types of flashlights, holsters, gun attachments, and their purpose in different situations. Students will learn how to properly perform dry fire drills, utilizing the MantisX, low light techniques, and shooting from behind cover. The course will conclude with a final proficiency test developed by the Maryland State Police. Each student will demonstrate safe gun handling and proficiency with a minimum passing score of 70%.
At a minimum, you'll need a firearm, 50 rounds of ammunition, eye & ear protection. If you own your own firearm & eye/ear protection, bring it to class.
