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 facility!
When it comes down to guns and gun safety, you owe it to yourself to get the very best
handgun training course and doing so in a very safe and controlled range environment. 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 as that!
It is YOUR duty and responsibility to be safe with firearms, as well as knowing the
While attending a CCW Training Course with Best Handgun Training you
will learn all laws when it comes down to using a gun in self defense, which eliminates "gray
areas" that exist for some CCW permit holders that have attended training classes from other instructors
without the proper instruction. This includes draw and do not draw scenarios, shoot and do not shoot
scenarios, where it is (and where it is not) permissable to carry a gun, the best type of holsters
and concealment methods, the best methods for deploying your gun from a holster, what to expect after a
self defense shooting, and all laws pertaining to the use of force.
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.
If you have "handgun" safety and "recent" handgun shooting experience, the CCW 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 and safe parking. We do utilize
an outdoor private shooting range nearby for live fire drills, qualifications and
other exercises. SAFETY IS OUR #1 CONCERN.
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 entire training in one day,
provided that you demonstrate your ability to use a firearm safely. If your county sheriff requires
16 hours, we will complete the training over 2 days (with range and classrom time in both days). For the 2 day
course, it can be over a period of time. We have flexible weekday and weekend instruction, 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 following month.
