All materials will be provided and are included in the class fee. After successful completion of the class, you will receive a certificate of safe operation which will enable you to apply for a concealed carry license with the state.

Class fee: $39 per person. There are NO additional fees for gun rentals, ammo, range fee etc.  We will provide everything that you need at the price shown to enable you to show proof to the state of safe firearm operation when you apply for your Florida Concealed Carry Weapon license. Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive the necessary documents to apply by mail for your CCW and a certificate showing that you operated a firearm safely in front of the instructor.  You can also choose to apply for your license at the Florida Department of Agriculture Regional Office. The State of Florida will charge you two additional fees for a total of $97 (currently $42 for fingerprint processing and $55 for licensing). Complete instructions to apply for your license will be provided in class.

If you choose to apply for your license in person at the Regional Office in Duval County, there is no need to pay a third party for a license photo, application notarization or a fingerprint card.   The Regional office will take your photo and fingerprints and notarize your application.  There is no discount in the state license/fingerprint processing fee for third party handling of these items.
