Idaho Carry and Concealed Class

Idaho Concealed Carry Class Overview

We are a family focused group of instructors dedicated to delivering a quality
firearm concealed carry class in a safe and secure concealed carry class
environment. We focus on involving as many members of your family during our
concealed carry class to ensure everyone, regardless of age, behaves
appropriately when around a firearm in Idaho.
Many students are new to a formal Idaho carry concealed class. They come to us expecting to be treated with
respect, taught in a professional manner, and to teach them how to use their firearm properly. We believe our job is
to engage our students with thoughtful discussion, class demonstrations, encouraging drills and practical exercises
that will improve their firearms skills.
We have both male and female instructors conducting our Idaho Concealed Carry Class. Some Idaho Concealed Carry
class students have a preference to be taught by a class instructor of the same sex while others prefer the opposite;
some Idaho students have no preference. Our class has both male and female instructors.

rules, storage, and responsibility. The class teaches the fundamental rules of

Idaho gun owner to secure their weapon in a safe or to use a safety device that
prevents unauthorized usage. Securing firearms from unauthorized access in
Idaho is extremely important and can prevent the needless tragedies we have
witnessed in the past when an unstable person goes on a gun shooting spree.

Building Idaho Concealed Carry Shooting Skills Class

attended an Idaho concealed carry class in the past, will learn basic shooting styles

class covers topics such as breath control, hold control, trigger control and more.

asked to practice each of them. As our Idaho concealed carry class is building up

how to improve target acquisition. The Idaho concealed carry class closes with a
