Concealed Weapons Permit Classes

What is a Concealed Weapons Permit?

A concealed weapons permit (CWP) gives a law abiding citizen the right and privilege to carry a firearm on their person under certain conditions.

How much will the CWP cost?

The A certified classroom instruction and range qualification cost is $80.00 The charge for SLED to process your CWP and conduct a nationwide background check is $50.00. You pay this fee,  to SLED when you send the complete package we give you.

What do I receive for my $80.00?

Your 80.00 fee includes classroom instruction, testing, firearms qualification, range fee, two fingerprint cards, and a Training Certificate. At the end of the course you will have everything you need to apply to SLED for your CWP. Once submitted to SLED your application is processed and a background investigation is conducted which takes up to 90 days.

How long is my class?

The classroom portion is typically 6-7 hours and includes up to two hours at the range.

What if I don't have a firearm?

State law does not require you own a firearm in order to obtain a CWP, you may borrow a firearm for use at the range. We can provide a firearm for a small fee. You will be responsible for your own ammunition that matches your firearm.

How much ammunition do I need to bring?

You must bring a minimum of 55 rounds. It is recommended that you bring 100 rounds for practice and errors that may occur such as mis-firing rounds.

Can I carry any gun or just the one I qualify with?

After you qualify, and SLED issues your CWP, you can carry any firearm under 12 inches in a concealed manner.

Do I need to practice before coming to the CWP class?

You should familiarize yourself with your firearm, the operation, loading and unloading. The CWP class is very basic and we will help you, at the range with practice before the qualification if necessary. Knowing your weapon is best to get you qualified.
