I'd check with Shoot Straight or call them at 813-627-8550




I took my "class" from Shoot Straight on US301 near MLK Blvd. The "instructor" was professional, however when I took it over a year ago, it was a very, very basic class that included:



Gun Safety

FL Statute Review (those that are about definitions of weapon, concealed, etc)

Lastly there was a firearm familiarity "test"; 15 shots at 3yrds and 10 at 7yrds. All they really care about is safe handling and if you can keep most of your rounds in a silhouette.



I would recommend it as the bare necessities to obtain a CWP in FL; however, I would not consider any of it "training"

Are you looking for a class to fulfill the permit requirement, or are you looking for training on concealed carry?

I ask because from almost everyone I've spoken to in Florida, the required "class" doesn't really teach you much and is more of a formality.

If you are looking for training in that area, there should be some decent ones to choose from, considering the units stationed on that Air Force base.

Yeah, I did take a class already (my original post is almost eight months old). I terms of the lecture, it was a basic class. But the range instruction was pretty good. I was given some really good tips on my stance and so fourth. In the end, I was getting the tightest groups ever.



So all my forms, finger prints, passport photos are ready to and have been ready for months. I just have to send it all in !!!



Thanks for all the input nonetheless.

I'm an idiot and didn't notice the date.

Glad you found something worthwhile.

In the Tampa area... for training? LOL...



Contact Super Dave Harrington... Just look him up.



He trains all over the country, and you better not be squeamish. He's "unique", but one of the best in the world. I shoot with him a few nights a month.
