NRA Basic CCW Course (Georgia)
March 8 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm$100
The goal of the NRA CCW Course is to teach the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to carry a concealed pistol for personal protection. NRA CCW is a newly-developed curriculum that builds on the fundamentals taught in the NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting Course and puts those skills into a defensive context for private citizens who carry concealed handguns. This course is eight hours in length, with a significant portion of the class spent on the range.

The Basic CCW course is modular and can be adjusted to serve clients’ needs. This version is a total of four hours long and includes only the modules on safety, holster basics, and live-fire. That amounts to roughly two hours of classroom instruction and two hours of work on the range. After a review of the safety rules, we’ll focus solely on developing safe techniques for drawing from the holster. Students should already be familiar with basic marksmanship an safe gun-handling.
Small classes ensure low student-to-instructor ratios for lots of individualized attention. The course concludes with a written test and a shooting qualification drill. Our patient instructors will be there to assist students every step of the way in a comfortable, non-intimidating environment.
Students will need:
- a quality defensive handgun
- a properly-fitted holster and belt
- at least two extra magazines or speed-loaders (and a method of carrying them on your person)
- roughly 100 rounds of ammunition
- a cover garment for concealment
- anything you need to keep yourself comfortable in the elements (we’ll spend several hours on an outdoor range)
Students may also purchase ammunition from us if necessary. Feel free to contact us for questions about equipment requirements, and please let us know in advance if you will need to borrow equipment or purchase ammo.
The NRA CCW course is modular and can be adjusted to different lengths, depending on which modules are included. For this CCW course, we are offering three modules for a total of four hours of instruction, including classroom lessons and live-fire drills on the range.
