Course Fees and Requirements



Due to unprecedented demand in 2021, ammunition has become difficult to obtain and prices have skyrocketed. Normally ammunition is provided as part of the class cost, however, we have been forced to add additional charges for qualifying with our firearms. One qualification is included in class cost, additional qualifications with our firearms/ammo are $25. Available firearms for qualification include .45 caliber semi-automatic and .45 caliber revolver as well as 9mm semi-auto and .38 revolver. Due to the potential for damage, we do not permit the use of outside ammunition in our firearms.

Class Size = 8

NOTICE: Application for a concealed handgun license involves a thorough police background check. New Mexico does not issue “non-resident” permits. Felony or violent misdemeanor convictions, DUI, domestic violence, and other such charges, including deferred charges, may be disqualifying. While we are happy to give general guidance based on state laws, if you have specific questions about potential background incidents that may interfere with your ability to obtain a concealed handgun license, please consult with an attorney.
