July Alaska Concealed Handgun Permit Class:

This is a sixteen-hour course. This class has been combined with an NRA Basic Pistol Class to meet and surpass the the state minimum requirements for course length. Students should expect to shoot approximately 100 to 150 rounds of ammunition. Students will learn basic defensive shooting skills, strategies for home safety and responding to a violent confrontation, firearms and the law, how to choose a handgun for self-defense, and continued opportunities for skill development. Students will receive the NRA Guide to the Basics of Personal Protection In The Home handbook, NRA Basic Pistol handbook, NRA Gun Safety Rules brochure, the Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification booklet, and course completion certificate.

NRA Basic Personal Protection In The Home course is for law-abiding adult citizens, as defined by applicable federal, state, or local law, and experienced shooters (shooters able to show mastery of the basic skills of safe gun handling, shooting a group, zeroing the firearm, and cleaning the firearm) to maximize what can be learned from this course.

The class begins on Friday, July 25th at 6:30 PM at the MVS Range Complex with at least three hours of legal explanation of the Alaska Statutes on the use of force taught by an attorney. The class continues on through Saturday and contains a written exam and a shooting qualification that individuals must pass to obtain a course completion certificate.

The cost is $60 for members and $90 for non- members.
