Bristlecone Fundamentals of Concealed Carry

July 3, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Instructor:Samantha Kasven

6 Hours: $150.  Holster Range Portion. 2 Hours: $30.  This course meets Colorado’s requirements for a concealed handgun permit and is designed to educate the students on which handguns are best for concealed carry, how to carry them safely and securely, and how to deploy them efficiently in the context of a Dynamic Critical Incident. This course introduces shooters to the core basics of the Defensive Shooting Program, as well as aspects of handgun ownership and other basic information geared toward the handgun owner.  Based on science, logic and reasoning this conceptual course will cover basic pistol handling, holster selection, drawing from a holster, alternative force options and interacting with law enforcement and the aftermath of an incident. Holster portion is recommended but not required. Skills learned in the classroom will be reinforced in the live fire range time.


Equipment Requirements:

  • Defensive Handgun (modern striker fire preferred)
  • 2 magazines
  • Appropriate strong side holster
  • 100-150 Rounds of ammunition
  • Sturdy belt
  • Hearing and Eye protection
  • Range appropriate clothing (No shorts or open toed shoes)


**Equipment rental package available for $10.  This includes a handgun, magazines and holster only.  Minimum number of students (3) required to run the class or it may be canceled/ rescheduled.

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.
