What kind of Handgun should I bring?
If you are wondering what kind of handgun to purchase for conceal carry, I advise taking the class first. You will have learned so much more after taking the class and you will be better able to select a handgun, holster, and conceal carry method.
If you are using a Semi Auto handgun, you should have 2 magazines for reloading. A holster is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
NO LIVE AMMUNITION IS ALLOWED INSIDE THE CLASSROOM. Your Firearms will be subject to inspection before entering the class, as well as anytime during the class at the instructors direction.
If you have any questions at all, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
After succesfully completing the class you will receive your certificate of completion. You may then go to the the County Sheriff's Office website where you reside & set up an appointment to be fingerprinted & begin a background investigation. They will charge their own fees to issue you a new concealed carry handgun permit. Pender Co.Sheriff's Office
