Level 1 Firearms Safety and Training is a family focused group
of instructors dedicated to delivering quality


Idaho Carry Concealed Weapons License

Many students are new to concept of carry concealed weapons training. Students are taught in a
professional manner how to use their firearm properly. We believe our job is to engage our students with
thoughtful discussion, demonstrations, enactments, drills and live-fire exercises that will improve their
weapon skills.
We have both male and female instructors conducting our Enhanced Idaho Concealed Weapons
License Class. Some students have a preference to be taught by an instructor of the same sex while
others prefer the opposite; other students have no preference.

A Typical Concealed Weapons Class

When you attend an

Enhanced Idaho Concealed Weapons Class

, there are certain state requirements that have to be met. Like any formal training event, there's a mixture of lectures, practical demonstrations, interaction with students, ensuring students comprehend the lessons they are taught, allowing plenty of time to practice, ask questions, and review their class plan. Concealed weapon classes are broken down into logical steps which are built upon throughout the day.

Firearm Safety Lessons

Concealed weapon safety classes begin with the most
basic of firearm safety rules, storage, and responsibilities.
Students learn the 3-most fundamental rules of weapons
safety followed by additional rules which are designed to
ensure an “accidental” discharge never occurs, an “innocent”
target is never struck, and the responsibility a gun owner
has to secure his weapons in a safe that cannot be
accessible by an unauthorized person. Securing firearms
from unauthorized access is extremely important and can
prevent the needless tragedies we have witnessed in the

Understanding your Firearm

If you don’t understand your firearm, how it works, why it works, what size ammunition it takes, it can cause serious injury to yourself and others. During the class, an overview of basic pistol mechanisms and their operations are discussed. We compare a revolver to a semi-automatic pistol, explain each of their strengths and weaknesses, and then focus on the student’s personal weapon of choice.

Building Shooting Skills

Students who are new to firearms, and those who have shot
in the past, will learn several shooting styles and positions.
While attending the class, students conduct “dry-fire”
exercises (dry-fire means no live ammunition). They are
instructed on topics such as breath control, hold control,
trigger control and more. As we are building up to “live-fire” at
the range, students are provided with information about
common shooting errors that occur, how to correct them,
and how to improve their target acquisition. The class
includes a discussion and demonstration of common pistol
stoppages and how to correct them when they occur.
