Idaho CCW Permit Classes

Overview of the Idaho CCW Permit Class


Level 1 Firearms Safety and Training is a

family focused

team of firearm instructors who are
dedicated to delivering quality

firearm safety instruction

in a safe and secure environment.
We focus on involving as many members of your family as possible to ensure everyone, regardless
of age, behaves appropriately when around a firearm, including teaching young children who we
teach to never touch a firearm, to leave the room, and to contact an adult.
Students come to us expecting to be treated with respect and taught in a professional manner; to teach them how to use their firearm properly. At Level 1 Firearms Safety and Training, you will never experience the “military style” mindset other instructors provide. We believe our job is to engage our students with thoughtful discussion, demonstrations and practical exercises directed at encouraging drills and followed up by live-fire exercises that will improve their firearms skills. We have both male and female instructors conducting

Idaho CCW permit classes

. Some students have a preference to be taught by an instructor of the same sex while others prefer the opposite; others have no preference.

A Typical Training Day



When you attend an

Idaho CCW Permit Class

, there are certain state requirements that have to be met during instruction. Like any formal training event, there’s a mixture of lectures, practical demonstrations, interaction with the students, ensuring students comprehend the lessons they are taught, and allowing plenty of time to practice, ask questions, and review their lesson plan. Classes are essential broken down into logical steps that are built upon throughout the day. Students are not allowed to fall behind! We will take extra time assisting students along the way--

Idaho CCW Permit Classes

are too important for anyone to be left behind!

Safety Lessons


Safety lessons with our

Idaho CCW classes

begin with basic of firearm safety rules, storage, and responsibility. Students learn the 3-most fundamental rules of firearm safety: ALWAYS keep a gun pointed in a safe direction; ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger;  ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready for use!  We add additional rules which are designed to ensure an “accidental” discharge never occurs. Securing firearms from unauthorized access 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. In most cases, guns are provided by unwilling family member’s who do not secure them properly-the simple act of securing firearms in a locked safe canprevent many of horrific events.

Understanding your Firearm



If you don’t understand your firearm, how it works, why it works, what size ammunition it takes, can cause serious injury to yourself and others. During this lesson, an overview of basic pistol mechanisms and their operations are discussed. We compare revolvers to semi-automatic pistols, explain their strengths and weaknesses, and focus on the student’s personal firearm of choice. This is a very interactive time as student’s “showcase” their firearm and explain why they preferred it over others (don’t worry, there’s no ammunition allowed in the class and the firearms are checked before being allowed in the class). There is an in-depth discussion on ammunition, how it works, the varying calibers and options.

Building Shooting Skills


Students who are new to firearms will learn several basic shooting styles and positions. While
inside the class, the students will conduct several “dry-fire” exercises (dry-fire means no live
ammunition). They are instructed on topics such as breath control, hold control, trigger control
and more. Students are taught the most basic shooting positions and asked to practice each of
them to find the one that best fits their comfort level. As we are building up to “live-fire” at the
range, students are provided with information about the common shooting errors that occur, how
to correct them, and how to improve upon their target acquisition. The lesson closed with a
discussion and demonstration of common pistol stoppages and how to correct them when they
occur.

Firearms, Self-Defense, and the Law


Students receive an over-view of the major federal and state laws which affect them on
a daily basis. The use of reasonable force, deadly-force, brandishing a weapon, and
other topics apply.
This lecture satisfies the Idaho Standard Carry and Concealed Weapon License
requirements. Students who are seeking to apply for the

Idaho Enhanced Carry

and Concealed Weapon License

have to attend a

separate legal

course

conducted by a member of the Idaho State Bar Association.

Idaho Concealed Carry


This lesson dives into essential, life saving strategies, such as establishing mental awareness
of threats around you, developing a defensive mindset, avoiding a confrontation,
responding to an attack, the differences between cover and concealment, what to do if
you must shoot-and the aftermath that follows a shooting.
The lesson offers various carry and concealed methods for students to consider and purchase
together with the most common ways to present their firearm from these options. We discuss
how to choose a carry and concealed firearm option verses one that is used in the home or
choosing a firearm carry option that will meet both requirements.

Caring for your Firearm

This lesson completes your training with a demonstration of how to clean,
store, and care for your firearm. Students are encouraged to bring their gun
cleaning kits to the classroom together with their unloaded firearm, for a
complete breakdown on how to properly clean their pistol.
This portion of the class concludes the state requirements for the

Standard Idaho Carry and

Concealed Class

.

The map below demonstrates which state will honor their Standard Idaho CCW. States in yellow require you are a resident of Idaho for
the license to be accepted.
CAUTION: State laws can change at any time as well as their agreement for reciprocity among one another. When traveling, ALWAYS
check with local law enforcement to see if your Idaho Concealed Weapons License is accepted. ALWAYS check travel state laws to
ensure there are no other regulations you need to be aware of before traveling through that state. Some states do not allow you to carry in
a restaurant, others do not allow you to carry in an establishment with a “No Guns Allowed” sign (a separate law and a separate crime),
others, will not allow you to carry concealed with “one-in-the-chamber” which forces you to "rack" your pistol before commencing.
ALWAYS familiarize yourself with the states requirement to inform law enforcement you are carrying.
Students wishing to apply for the

Idaho Enhanced Carry and Concealed License

will be instructed to meet the following at
the range.

The State of Idaho requires students applying for the

Idaho Enhanced CCW

permit to fire 98+ rounds of ammunition in the
presence of a firearms instructor. Although all of the classroom instruction has been met and completed during the Standard Idaho CCW
permit portion, many of the “dry-exercises” conducted during class will be repeated at the range using live-fire ammunition. This will re-
enforce the importance of dry-fire exercise followed by practical, live-fire practice.

Once students have completed the range instruction and qualification shoot, they will be issued a certificate of completion together with a
signed form for the State of Idaho stating the student has met the classroom and shooting requirements for the

Idaho Enhanced

Carry and Concealed Weapons License

. Students will need to attend their

legal instruction class

to meet the
remaining state of Idaho requirements for the Idaho Enhanced Concealed Weapons License. Students who have already attended legal
instruction must bring their signed form to the range so the firearm instructor can sign-off on the firearms portion of the application. Once a
student receives their Idaho Enhanced Carry and Concealed License, they will be able to carry concealed in the states listed below.
