Bristlecone Fundamentals of Concealed Carry

April 10, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Instructor:Samantha Kasven

After completing this course, you will exceed all of the State of Colorado’s requirements to apply for a CCW Permit.  The CCW qualification portion of the class is 6 hours (classroom and live fire range).  There is an 2 hour optional range session directly after the 6 hour class, where some additional concealed carry skills are taught.  The 2 hour session is not mandatory for the CCW certificate and there is an additional $30 charge.

CCW Qualification Course (6 hours $150 ) 

This 6 hour course is designed to educate students about the firearms best for concealed carry, how to carry them safely and securely, and how to use them efficiently in the context of a dynamic critical incident. The class introduces new shooters to some of the core basics of the Defensive Focus® Shooting program, as well as aspects of handgun ownership and other basic information geared towards the new handgun owner.  Firearm safety, holster selection, live fire drills in the range, as well as alternate force options, interacting with law enforcement and the aftermath of an incident.

3 hours classroom, 3 hours on the range.

Pre-requisites: None

Required materials for the class:
Medium size semi auto pistol (pistols can be rented from Bristlecone, or students may bring their own)
3 magazines
Minimum of 150 rounds of ammunition
Holster (OWB Strong side preferred)
Double magazine pouch (preferred, not required)
Eye and ear protection
Pen and paper for notes.
2 Hour Range Session ( additional $30, must have at least 5 students)
These 2 hours will focus on drills in the live fire range that build off of what the students learn in the initial concealed carry class; drawing from the holster, incorporation of movement and scenario-based training in the live fire range.  The additional range session will give students a good foundation to build their individual training off of after the class.
