"I thought I knew a little bit about guns, gun safety, and the law regarding guns. But I was awakened to a plethora of information that I believe, no one thinks about or even imagines. You also must know your weapon, know its operation and its faults. Not all weapons are user friendly. You must match the weapon to its use scenario. This is extremely important. Take my word. I learned this first hand. Tim taught us above and beyond the guidelines required by law. Tim is a professional with experience that only enhances your participation in furthering your education on all aspects of the gun owners world. Tim's curriculum is top notch. I highly recommend Tim as an instructor. This is a quality instruction course on guns, gun safety and the law. Thank you Tim for your service, all around!"
Brian Jones

"I thoroughly enjoyed my class. It was very informative and to the point, a no frills learning experience. I was very impressed with having several different age groups, hearing impaired and experienced people in my class and Tim did everything he needed to do to make it a great experience for them. I feel that the training was tough, to the point, very serious and no shortcuts....everything I wanted my experience to be. I enjoyed it enough that I cannot wait to learn more and more through continued training in the near future. Thank You."
Rod Peterson
Concealed Carry Student

As a retired military I could have been exempt from the firearms handling portion but after a friend explained what Tim was training I opted to attend with my wife and friend. This is an AWESOME class, Tim does an outstanding job teaching you tactics that will not only protect your life but your rights and keep you legally on the right track. Having been a shooter almost 50 years this class put a whole new perspective on what you are doing in a CCW situation. Can't say enough good about the class!!!!
IL Concealed Carry Student

"I thought I knew something about safe handling of a firearm. I was mistaken. This class was a real eye opener for me. Not just in safety, but, a great education in the importance of training in general. I would highly recommend this class to anyone, regardless of whether they wish to carry concealed or not."

for Multi State carry:

·       Non Resident Florida Concealed Weapons Permit and carry in 34 states noted below:

It is important for license holders to understand that when they are traveling in or through another state they are subject to the firearm laws of that state. We have provided links to the state laws or to the licensing authorities' Web page of each of the reciprocity states so that licensees can do the necessary planning and research when preparing to travel.


QUESTION 4.  I have a Florida Concealed Weapon/Firearm License, but I am not a legal resident of Florida. Can I travel to the states that recognize Florida licenses and still carry a concealed weapon?

Most of the reciprocity states will honor Florida non-resident permits; however, authorities in a number of states have informed us that there are specific provisions in their laws that restrict the terms of their mutual recognition agreements ONLY to the LICENSED RESIDENTS of other states. Therefore, those individuals who hold Florida licenses but who are not residents of Florida cannot carry concealed weapons in these states. Please take careful note of those states listed above that have a reference to Footnote 4 after them.

BE ADVISED: Because gun laws are subject to change or different interpretation by state courts, we recommend that non-resident Florida licensees call or write licensing authorities in the states in which they will be traveling to obtain the latest information on this important topic.
