Florida CWL/Handgun Safety Course


Some Florida Concealed Weapon License  (CWL) classes run 2 or 3 hours long.  Some have each student shoot one round into a barrel or bucket of sand. Then you will get a certificate to qualify you to obtain your Florida Concealed Weapon License.  You will then be licensed to carry your firearm concealed for self-defense purposes.  Do you really want the bare minimum? 
While you can find a Florida CWL class costing you less money and a class that runs in a shorter amount of time, we feel that people wishing to carry a firearm for self-defense should have proper training with firearms and our course offers just that.

We run a qualified CWL - Handgun Safety Course. The course runs approx 6 ½ hours in length and we do significant handling of many different types, makes & models of handguns. Students then step out onto the range where they fire several different calibers of the handguns we worked on in the class. Upon completion, participants receive a TDTC Certificate qualifying  for a Florida CWL.

Anything less is doing a great disservice to you, your family and friends. Carrying a firearm without proper training is a disaster waiting to happen.  You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to be properly trained…..let us all be responsible, safe gun owners.

This Florida CWL class is a prerequisite for all higher-level TDTC handgun courses. 

[ $85.00 Includes ammunition, range and use of guns. ]
