About the Event

Initial Permits: CCW Foundations fulfills 8-hours of your 16-hour training requirement. You must also take Paladin's Basic Pistol class for the additional 8-hours.  You can take the classes in either order. 

Renewals:  CCW Foundations fulfills the 8-hour training requirement. If you are concerned about not passing the qualification, please see above. 

This covers the state-mandated material for CCW permit holders:

  • Laws concerning firearms possession, storage, etc.
  • Firearm safety rules
  • Fundamentals of shooting
  • Loading and unloading procedures
  • Discussion of terminal ballistics and ammunition selection
  • Firearm and holster selection
  • Self defense law and post-shooting procedures
  • Mental health
  • Live-fire qualification

Required Equipment:

  • Eye protection
  • Ear protection
  • Pistols to be listed on your permit with at least two magazines for each pistol
  • Outside-the-waistband holster for each pistol (see our blog post on selecting the proper holster)
  • At least 50 rounds of ammunition per pistol

You must have an outside-the-waistband holster for each pistol used in the live-fire qualification.  Inside-the-waistband, appendix or SERPA holsters (index finger retention systems) are not allowed on the range. You will have to reschedule your live-fire portion of class for an additional $100 fee. No exceptions.

If you fail your live-fire qualification during CCW Foundations, you will have to requalify during the range time at a subsequent CCW Foundations class. The cost for a repeat live-fire qualification is $100.
