Start Training Immediately
Every gun is unique in the way it feels, handles, and fires, so it’s essential to practice with each gun you own to get as comfortable and familiar with it as possible. If you train regularly, you will build muscle memory for how each gun fires, so you feel natural and comfortable with each one, even in stressful situations.
Do You Need a Training License
Each state has rules for how residents can obtain a concealed carry permit. Some states don’t require a permit, and some states require training that includes classroom instruction and/or live-fire qualification. Most states also require a criminal background check to ensure the purchaser is not prohibited, for any reason, from being issued a concealed carry license.
Check your state’s government website to find out what rules your state has for concealed carry. You may need to check your county website as well.
