Note: If you are seeking to get certified for Concealed Carry, and you have previous handgun experience (on a scale of 0-10, above a 5) it is recommended you sign up for the Pistol 2 course instead of  Pistol 1. Both are certification courses, but Pistol 2 is more focused on situational awareness/mindset/aftermath, and all live fire is done out of holster.

handgun before!
