USCCA Concealed Carry
February 13 -Tue @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The USCCA Concealed Carry class is a basic defensive handgun course for those who carry, or are considering carrying, a handgun for self-defense.
The United States Concealed Carry Association is one of the preeminent training organizations in the country. The USCCA provides Basic Handgun classes, Concealed Carry handgun classes, Home Defense firearms classes, and a broad range of superb training publications, videos, and on-line programs. The USCCA also provides a range of excellent self-defense firearm legal insurance programs. Indy Arms is proud to currently have five USCCA-certified firearms instructors on our training staff (and all of those instructors are also certified by other major training organizations, including the National Rifle Association, Tactical Training Associates, and the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy).
USCCA Concealed Carry is an informational and hands-on class in the carrying and use of a handgun in self-defense. Jeff Cooper, the legendary founder of Gunsite Academy, is credited with saying, “Owning a handgun doesn’t make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician.” This class is meant to address that issue by providing some of the basic knowledge and skills that will contribute to your being effectively armed.
The class covers firearms handling safety, range safety, and home safety. We summarize the legal, psychological, and law-enforcement response issues involved in using a firearm for self-defense. (And for those wanting more information, these topics are covered in extreme detail in a separate Indy Arms classroom course, Fundamentals of Armed Self-Defense.) We practice basic handling, operation, and shooting skills with training guns, “dry” in the classroom. And the course concludes with live-fire session on the range that also allows the student to shoot several types and configurations of firearms.
This course will consist of about 3 hours of classroom material and practice, and about 1 hour of live-fire range time. The class is nominally four hours in length, but sometimes runs a bit longer, based on student questions.
The class will include the use of a rental gun at no additional cost, if desired, and several other firearms will be available during the live-fire portion. Ammunition to allow the student to shoot a half-dozen various firearm configurations in .22 caliber will be provided, along with ten rounds of 9mm ammunition. Students will receive USCCA’s comprehensive full-color 245-page book, “Concealed Carry and Home Defense” along with additional information on available resources.
“To allow the student to experience first-hand some of the skills and challenges inherent in the use of a firearm in self-defense, and to provide information and basics that will allow the student to practice and improve those skills.”
