“I just completed my SC CWP course. The training and education that Carolina Sporting Arms offers are top-notch. Since becoming a handgun owner all my training has been through CSA. Mike Simpson does a great job presenting the information and provides the training a handgun owner should have. I plan to continue my training at CSA. All staff is very helpful both in the store and the range area. Safety and education are a priority.“

First and EXTREMELY IMPORTANT is that you understand that this is an intermediate 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.

BASIC INSTRUCTION IS AVAILABLE THRU CAROLINA SPORTING ARMS PRIOR TO ADMISSION TO THE SOUTH CAROLINA CONCEALED CARRY CLASS.

ALL GUNS BROUGHT INTO THE CLASSROOM WILL BE UNLOADED WITH MAGAZINES REMOVED AND EMPTY OF AMMO, SECURED IN A GUN CASE AND/OR RANGE BAG WITH AMMUNITION BOXED OR BAGGED AND SEPARATE FROM THE GUN. PERSONAL FIREARMS WILL NOT BE HANDLED AT ANY TIME DURING THE CLASS AND MAGAZINES WILL ONLY BE PREPARED ON INSTRUCTION FROM THE INSTRUCTOR ON THE RANGE ONLY. GUNS WILL REMAIN UNLOADED UNTIL THE STUDENT IS ON THE FIRING LINE AND HAS BEEN INSTRUCTED TO “LOAD AND MAKE READY.” STRICT ADHERENCE TO THESE RULES IS AN ABSOLUTE NECESSITY.
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 class sizes to no more than 12 participants. You deserve access to your instructor and this is why a low student to instructor ratio is capped. Small classes ensure your training needs are met and offer you a personal, guided training experience.
Photo ID is required to shoot on the range.
