North Carolina Concealed Carry Handgun Class

The following is the class schedule for my upcoming NC Concealed Carry Handgun Class:

October 15th 2022

Novemeber 5th 2022

This is a one-day class

You do not have to be 21 to attend the class but you do have to be 21 to receive a NC Concealed Carry Handgun Permit.

You do not have to live in Polk County, NC to take the class but you will submit your application to the Sheriff in the county of your residency.

The class portion will last from 8am to 4pm. We will take a 30min break around lunchtime.

Range time will be directly after the classroom portion and certificates will be handed out to those who pass. On average we end the day around 6PM. Please keep in mind that we train to a standard and not a time therefore some classes may run a little longer so plan accordingly.

Inclement weather plan: We will shoot in light rain so dress accordingly with the weather forecast. However, if there is lightning or HEAVY rain, we will postpone the range portion and plan another date to qualify.

The class will be held at:
Gunner's Haven also known as Gunner's Custom Holsters

2060 Lynn Road

Valley Plaza Suite #5

Columbus, NC 28722

Cost of the class is $75.00
This payment is nonrefundable/transferable as you are reserving a seat another person could have.

Due to the nature of the course, there are some requirements that must be met in order to participate:

- Please wear long pants

- Close-toed shoes or boots- NO sandals

- NO low-cut shirts due to the potential hazard of hot brass going down one's shirt.

- Pen and notebook for use in the classroom portion

- Ear and eye protection. Prescription Glasses can be used as eye protection. I also have Ear / Eye protection available in my Gun Shop needed.

- Personally-owned handgun. This can be either a revolver or a semi-automatic pistol. NO rifles, shotguns, or submachine guns.

- If you do not have a handgun, you can rent one from my shop; pistol and ammunition for $15.00

- You will need an outside-the-waistband OR inside-the-waistband holster for your pistol. I have a few holsters that you can borrow or purchase if needed.

- At least 50 rounds of ammunition for your pistol. Permissible calibers are: .22, .357, .380, .38, 9x19 mm, .40, .45. No rifle or shotgun ammunition.

NO Reloaded ammunition.

- Range bags are optional and suggested

NO Single Action Revolvers.

- I will provide the targets
- I recommend at least 2-5 magazines as one is none...Lets go to the range to shoot not just to reload!

- Please feel free to bring your own drinks, snacks/lunch. We will break for a short time for lunch at 1130


-must be twenty-one years of age or older

-not be under indictment for a felony offense

-not be unlawfully present in the United States

Student trends:

* While on the range using semiautomatic pistols with only 1 magazine. I suggest 2-5 magazines but at a minimum you should have at least 2 magazines.
* Not putting your phone away during class...remember this class is for YOU!
* Not reading this and showing up in shorts, sandals, or lowcut shirts.

I look forward to helping you earn your NC Concealed Carry Handgun Permit

5 of 5 Informative and focused class August 13, 2022
Reviewer: Morgan Leake from Agency, MO United States  
Gunner conducts a very organized and concise class, considering the amount of information that has to be covered.  He presents it in a straightforward manner, and makes good use of handouts and props.

Range was professionally and safely run, but be advised it is open air, so bring rain gear if the weather looks iffy.

Also, lunch is a half-hour break, so while it is theoretically possible to make a McDonald’s / Wendy’s / Bojangles run, it is probably a better idea to pack a lunch.

5 of 5 Worth your time! March 19, 2022
Reviewer: Alyssa Lewis from Mill Spring, NC  
Instructor Joe presented the classroom and gun range material with an obvious wealth of knowledge. I’ve previously taken a Concealed Carry Handgun course in another county and Joes *blew the other instructor out of the water*!
The information was expertly presented, organized and TAUGHT. His air of confidence relaxed every student he had, which allowed for open questions and conversation.
The safety and responsibility we have as gun owners was made clear and he executed his expectations clearly and concisely.
10/10 would recommend this course and I’m welcoming the opportunity to take more courses with him to become better myself. Thanks Joe, you rock!

5 of 5 One of the best CC courses/training March 3, 2022
Reviewer: Erik D. from Tryon, NC United States  
Mr. Poe ran the class for the NC CC handgun course. I've sat in other CC courses in another state and those did not compare to Joe's. The information here was very valuable, clearly presented, and a lot of attention was given to participants' questions. Joe did a great job sharing critical information and he ensured everyone was comfortable in the class and safe on the range. I highly recommend his class to anyone that is considering getting their CC permit, or anyone that is looking to become more familiar with NC law and handgun safety.
