Sportsman's Warehouse Nampa, Idaho CCW Classes

Differences between the Standard and the Enhanced CCW License:

The standard CCW license is likely going to be phased out in the next couple of years according to the Idaho Statesman article published February 5,
2015. The article titled "

Idaho bill would allow concealed guns without a permit

" explains that lawmakers are considering what is
referred to as a "Constitutional Carry" right, recognizing that law abiding U.S. Citizens have the right to carry a concealed weapon in public as afforded by
the United States 2nd amendment. In a related article, "

Idaho House committee introduces bill that would allow concealed guns

without a permit

" shows the bill has been introduced to the committee for consideration.

Today, the State offers two forms of a Carry and Concealed license; Standard and Enhanced. The Standard license requires a simple firearms safety
course without the need to attend live range exercises. It is recognized  (at the time of this writing) by 27 states. This means if you travel to Nevada,
Washington, or New Mexico, your license is null and void; not recognized.


Idaho Enhanced Carry and Concealed Weapons

license allows you to carry in those states, on Idaho University campuses, and in
additional states as well. To qualify for the license, students must attend an 8-hour class which comprises of firearm safety, a legal lecture from an
attorney, and discharge of 98 rounds of ammunition at the range.

If lawmakers pass the "Constitutional Carry" law, the standard license will go away, meaning, once the license holder's card expires, they would not be
allowed to carry in ANY state other than those who permit and recognize "Constitutional Carry" as well, which include Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona,
Vermont, and Wyoming.

If you are considering attending any firearms class, be sure it's an enhanced class!

will demonstrate, and request students to practice safe firearms strategies-our “

do as you learn

” philosophy keeps our students engaged throughout the training experience. It doesn't matter if you are attending a basic, enhanced, or a tactical pistol class, the “learn by doing” approach always applies for every class we teach at Level 1 Firearms Training.

Our classes exceed many state statutes and are accepted as proof of training in many of our neighboring states. For example, once you have received your training and your license, you can take your certification to Oregon and receive a non-resident permit.

In-depth, Personal Training

All of our classes are based on tried and true training methods which are deeply rooted from courses offered by the

National Rifle Association (NRA)

.  Because we are a small, family owned business, we can afford to take our time with our students, help them shoot more accurately, and become responsible firearm owners. We offer a wide variety of shooting events, practices, and drills; all designed to improve the studemts confidence and training.
