USCCA Basic Handgun Class

Class Information

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

This class has been officially authorized by the State of Connecticut Special License and Firearm Unit and successful completion of this class will allow you to apply for your Connecticut Pistol Permit and other permits from numerous other states.

Please note this is not a NRA class and you are not required to complete any online classes prior to attending our one day course. Why spend the extra money and add a week or more of online classes when our one day, one fee class meets 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.

Classroom portion and live fire range time is all completed at one location, no driving from the classroom to the range and extending your day longer than it needs to be.

The USCCA Basic Handgun Class includes 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 thoroughly 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 Basic Pistol Class is $150 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.
