Class Information

We currently offer both the USCCA Basic Handgun and NRA Basic Pistol classes. Both classes exceed the requirement to apply for your CT Pistol Permit or Eligibility Certificate(s) as set by the State of Connecticut Special License and Firearm Unit.

Both the USCCA and NRA classes are one day, one location, one fee and meet all of the education requirements to apply for your Connecticut Pistol Permit as well as non resident permits from numerous other states including Florida, Maine, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Wisconsin and more.

The United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) Basic Handgun Class is a fun, fast paced class that will help both beginners and experts learn the skills to safely handle and carry pistols and revolvers with an emphasis on self defense.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) Basic Pistol Class focuses on safety and marksmanship, and is designed to teach you the basic knowledge, skills and attitude to safely handle pistols and revolvers.

Both the USCCA and NRA classes include classroom training on gun parts and operation, ammunition, malfunctions, cleaning, storage, loading and unloading, shooting fundamentals, range safety and pistol sports and activities.

Students are then required to demonstrate safe gun handling while completing a live fire exercise on the shooting range.

In addition, we will go over the Connecticut and a few state's non resident permit processes so that you can successfully apply for and receive your permit(s).

Connecticut laws will be discussed in general and information will be given on how students should follow up with advanced training classes that get into much greater detail about the laws and advanced shooting skills. It is highly recommended that all students follow up their basic training and take these advanced courses once they receive their permit and purchase their own handgun.




All classes are currently held at Wolf's Indoor Range in Bristol, CT (If you have questions or need to cancel a registration please email me directly or use the below form to contact us, DO NOT CALL WOLF"S INDOOR RANGE, we only rent their facilities to teach this class and they do not handle any scheduling or answer questions about any of our classes.)




The fee for the either of the CT Pistol Classes is $135 and is payable the morning of the class. Payment is accepted by cash (preferred) or major credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) only. Under no circumstances will checks (personal, business, certified, etc.) or money orders be accepted.




All necessary classroom materials, firearms, ammunition, eye and ear protection and other needed range equipment will be provided for you as needed.
