You'll take home a copy of Concealed Carry and Home Defense (a $27 value) as well as lots of information to continue your education.
This is a fantastic course for someone new to firearms because I provide everything you need for the day except your food and drinks. You'll shoot a variety of firearms in several calibers to get a better understanding of which handgun suits YOUR needs. Please bring your food, drinks, baseball style hat and wear boots or sneakers. No low cut shirts or open toed shoes please.
