Greatest experience I have ever had, mark is the best teacher for this topic. The class is information packed and mark is very knowledgeable on the concealed carry laws and the overall gun laws of North Carolina. I highly recommend everyone that is able to take this class, to take it, I recommend it for the information alone even if you don’t want your concealed, it is great to know about the gun laws. Thanks once again!

About This Deal

Choose Between Two Options

The North Carolina concealed-carry class qualifies students to apply for a concealed-carry-handgun permit by meeting the state’s requirement of at least eight hours of training. Instructors cover state laws and explain safe handling and maintenance with an emphasis on proper storage. After the classroom portion, students learn marksmanship principles through live-fire training at the range. Tuition includes targets, state documents, and other materials necessary to qualify for a concealed-carry-handgun permit, such as a certificate of completion. Tuition does not include gun rental, ammo, or eye and ear protection—students may bring their own, or add a rental package for an additional $55 at the time of class. Practical Arms welcomes beginners to this course; no firearms prerequisite classes are required.

About Practical Arms

The Range

Instructors teach at a private shooting range only open to classes or for competitive events.

The Rentals

Practical Arms offers rental packages with guns, holsters, magazine pouches, and all of the other required gear for each of their classes.

At a Glance

A person buys a gun, stores it away, and then never learns how to use it. That scenario perplexes Practical Arms founder and director Mark Williams, because knowing how to safely store and operate a firearm requires ongoing training and practice. That's why he and his fellow instructors draw upon their wealth of expertise to train novice and experienced visitors. Boasting multiple training certifications from organizations such as the North Carolina Department of Justice—plus experience training law-enforcement personnel from agencies such as the FBI and ATF—Mark oversees classes that adhere to NRA curricula, such as the NRA basic pistol-shooting course and home-defense classes. In addition to instructing students in the safe use of firearms, Mark and his team maintain a welcoming, nonthreatening atmosphere.
