Best Handgun Training offers many classes all month and all year long, while
other instructors "occasionally" offer training classes. We are a full time, top-notch training
When it comes down to guns and gun safety, you owe it to yourself to get the
very best handgun training course. When training with BEST Handgun Training, you will walk away
with a tremendous wealth of knowledge, rather than taking a "bare minimum" training class from an
instructor that may not be prepared to teach the appropriate lessons, or from a newer
firearms instructor without the knowledge and skills in which we possess. Most of our instructors have a
minimum of 20 years of experience as a trainer and/or law enforcement backgrounds, with a combined experience of
over 140 years in the industry.
Our 24/7 online scheduling calendar will make your scheduling easy...as simple
It is YOUR duty and responsibility to be safe with firearms, as well as
knowledgeable with the laws.....
And our CCW training will provide you with the knowledge (and more importantly, in depth
discussion of laws and scenarios pertaining to CCW) in which you need to apply on a daily routine to
responsibly carry a concealed weapon, as well as maintaining your marksmanship skills.
For the CCW training, you will be required to qualify (demonstrate your
ability to use the firearms safely and accurately), at 10 yards or less. We will be instructing
everyday "above common sense" approach tactics, as well as situational awareness skills.
If you have "handgun" safety and "recent" handgun shooting experience, the
qualifications are rather simple if you know your gun. Our training courses prepare you for the real
every-day world, and are scenario driven.
BEST Handgun Training's indoor classroom instruction is in a
private, safe, professional facility, with plenty of free parking. We do utilize an outdoor private
shooting range nearby for live fire drills, qualifications and other exercises. SAFETY IS OUR #1
If you are fairly experienced with shooting handguns (AND have been to a "public" range
fairly recently), if your county sheriff requires 8 hours, we will complete the training in one day, provided
that you demonstrate your ability to use a firearm safely. This 8 hour course is typically about a 9
hour day, as there is so much to learn, regardless of your level of experience. This is the "CCW
training 8 hour class". We recommend that if you are somewhat new to guns, or if your county sheriff
requires an 8 hour training, to attend our 16 hour training, (although not required) as there is no
additional cost for the additional training day.
If your sheriff requires a 16 hour training, you will be required to complete
this training in two days, for a total of 16 hours. We no longer provide an all day/evening 16 hour class, but
we do have flexible schedules, as you will see when you click on "schedule
your class". Just a reminder, we post our calendar on or about the 15th of each month, for the

that you have the "proper" training, knowledge and ability to use it safely, store it properly, and be

NOT have reciprocity agreements with any other state).
