THE NEXT STEP-HOW TO APPLY FOR YOUR CWFL
We are certified through U.S. Law Shield to teach Florida State Law.
For all of our Florida Concealed Weapon or Firearm License (CWFL) Classes, we use the U.S. Law Shield lesson plan, videos and classroom materials to ensure students are familiar and comfortable with Florida State Law.
Due to the rising cost of ammo, we have had to increase our prices, as we supply all firearms and ammo for our classes. We also provide a Continental breakfast, with fresh ground Black Rifle Coffee Company coffee, and a home cooked lunch with our classes.
Half day class-Designed for the experienced shooter
This class exceeds all Florida state requirements to certify our clients to apply for their CWFL.
It is primarily a law and scenario based training class geared toward the more experienced shooter.
Scenario based training is specifically related to Florida laws.
Clients will receive a 30 plus page quick reference guide to take home with them.
Clients will have the opportunity to hold and manipulate a large variety of pistols to see what fits them and is comfortable, as well as multiple types of concealed carry options.
Clients will shoot a suppressed .22 semi-auto pistol.
Time needed to complete this class is 4-6 hours. Cost is $75.
All day class-Defensive Handgun/Conceal Carry Class
We offer a more comprehensive Handgun/CWFL class, which is geared toward newer shooters.
With this class, in addition to the U.S. Law Shield lesson plan and scenario based training, we include an Active Shooter Lesson Plan, and tactical pistol training.
This training includes extended range time and the option to shoot multiple firearms of
their choice, which are selected from a wide variety of pistols we supply.
We also now include Tactical Malfunction Drills with this class, so we will train you on how to recover from a malfunction in a self defense scenario.
A huge bonus with this class is the opportunity to shoot a Colt Python 357 Magnum, and a suppressed AR 15, both of which are a lot of fun.
There is also a tactical shotgun demonstration, as it relates to home defense.
Clients will also receive a much more comprehensive take home reference guide.
Time needed to complete this class is 6-8 hours. Cost is $150 and is all inclusive.
Legal updates and scenario based training
For $50 per client, we offer a comprehensive legal review of all relevant Florida Statutes and scenario based training, in conjunction with the U. S. Law Shield lesson plan. This class is appropriate for someone who already has a CWFL, but wants training on updated legal requirements, statutes and guidelines.
This class would also be appropriate for someone applying to receive their CWFL with a DD 214 or Hunters Safety Card, as it would add the invaluable legal and scenario based training. Clients will still receive the 30 plus page take home reference guide, as with the $75 class.
Time needed to complete this class is approximately 4 hours.
This is a non shooting class, and therefore does not meet the minimum state requirements as a stand alone class.
NRA Basic Pistol Class
For our Certified Pistol Class, we use the NRA Basic Pistol lesson plan. Students learn gun safety, the fundamentals of pistols and pistol shooting in a controlled environment by NRA Certified Instructors and Range Safety Officers. Cost is $150 per student, and this is an NRA certified course.
Time needed to complete this class is 6-7 hours.
