The Carolina Sporting Arms guides understand your concerns and are here to help you on your journey. After years of training, our guides are experts at providing unforgettable unifying experiences. The NC Concealed Carry class is the next step in building your training foundation.
Now, you’re wondering what to expect? An NRA/NCDOJ certified instructor will discuss:
- – safety and shooting basics
- – defensive handgun selection
- – maintenance, ammunition, and holsters
- – how to clear malfunctions
- – escalation of force and relevant North Carolina gun laws
Once the classroom portion is completed, you will participate in a qualification exercise on the live-fire range. Your instructor will take you through the basics, so don’t worry if you have limited experience with handguns. If you don’t feel comfortable with a concealed gun, we offer beginner’s courses that will be a great First Steps in your training. These classes will give you the knowledge and confidence you deserve to continue with your training. Please note, this course is also offered in a Spanish-speaking setting.
First and EXTREMELY IMPORTANT is that you understand that this is an intermediate NC Concealed Carry Class for people who have some experience shooting a handgun. If you have had little or no experience with handguns then you should first opt for one of our basic pistol courses. This is NOT a class to learn how to shoot a gun AND receive a certificate to carry concealed!!! Please note that individuals who have extensive experience with rifles and/or shotguns should fare well in an intermediate class.
“My favorite aspect was watching the gun cleaning. The takedown of the gun was fundamental to learning about the parts. No suggestions for improvement, Joey and Mike were excellent!“
– Chris B.
What should you bring to CCW class?

- – Eye and ear protection *Available for purchase in the CSA range or store

What is provided by your CSA guide?

- – Certificate of completion (to present to your county sheriff)
Once you have a permit issued by the county sheriff, you will be certified to carry a concealed firearm safely and legally. Taking this class and learning how to carry will be a transformational step in your journey! We’re glad you’re not missing out!!
Please note: There will be a 30 minute break for lunch and several short breaks during the day. You are welcome to bring a lunch from home or buy a lunch from the restaurant next door.

If you have not fired a gun or have limited experience with a firearm, please take the FIRST SHOTS/FIRST STEPS class or the GIVE IT A SHOT CLASS (for women only) before taking this class.
In the rare instance we do not have a minimum of 3 participants, we may reschedule students to the next class that complies with the student’s schedule. Rescheduled students will have priority for the next scheduled class.
To ensure you have the best experience possible, we limit our NC Concealed Carry Class sizes to no more than 12 participants in Charlotte, NC. You deserve access to your instructor and this is why a low student to instructor ratio is capped.
