Take a CARRY or BEGINNER-TO-CARRY class

Before registering, please check your eligibility. Each of the following statements should be true:
  • I am experienced in shooting a handgun [more info]
    To register for the carry class, you must already know how to safely load, shoot, and unload a revolver or semiauto pistol.

    The class does include a shooting qualification exercise, as required by law, and no one gets rubber-stamped. You should be in practice!

    If you haven't shot your gun in a while, you might want to hit the range the week before class.

    If, for some reason, you don't pass the qualification (this is rare, but it does happen), you can either a) arrange for some coaching with me or any other instructor, or b) get some practice in. You can then come back and re-take the qualification at my next class, usually in two weeks.

    If you're a beginner, and you'd like to start with some basic pistol training, contact me by using the form at the bottom of the contact page.

  • I am a US Citizen or Permanent Resident [more info]
    State law says you need to be a citizen or have a "green card." A temporary visa (student, tourist, H1B) is not sufficient.

  • I will be at least 20 years of age on the date of the class [more info]
    You must be 21 to apply for a permit, but you may take the class up to a year before you apply, so you can take the class as soon as you turn 20.

  • I have never been convicted of a felony, a misdemeanor crime of violence, or a stalking offense [more info]
    See the text of the carry law (opens in a new window) for all of the disqualifying offenses.

    If the criminal record has been expunged, you may be eligible for a permit.

  • I have never been involuntarily committed to a mental health treatment program [more info]
    See the text of the carry law (opens in a new window) for all of the disqualifying offenses.

    If you have been so committed, you need to petition the court for relief from this discqualification.

  • I have never been convicted of a drug offense, or involuntarily committed to a drug abuse treatment program [more info]
    See the text of the carry law (opens in a new window) for all of the disqualifying offenses.

    If you have been so committed, you need to petition the court for relief from this discqualification.

  • I am not listed as a suspected gang member in the state gang task force database [more info]

  • I acknowledge that by registering, I consent to a criminal and public records search to confirm any information I provide and my eligibility to receive a permit to carry.

"I really appreciated the time you took with me and the other gal in our class, letting us try each of the handguns you had, and your patience in teaching us to shoot. I didn't feel awkward being such a beginner because of your patience. I also appreciated your opinion in choosing a handgun. (I did purchase the Taurus PT111, and am getting quite good at shooting it. I outscore my boyfriend every time we go to the range.) Thanks for giving me the confidence to learn to protect myself."
