Applications for Concealed Carry Licenses

Students applying for a concealed handgun license must be aware that the application process involves a thorough police background check. New Mexico does not issue “non-resident” permits. Disqualifying conditions include:

  • Felony or violent misdemeanor convictions,
  • DUI (within past 10 years)
  • Domestic violence
  • Other crime of violence charges (including deferred charges) such as: battery, stalking, harassment, and voyeurism.

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.

Safety

Although there is a certain level of risk involved in handling firearms, as with many activities, this risk can be successfully managed by following certain safety rules at all times. These rules are in place for the safety of students, instructors, and the surrounding community. Students who endanger themselves or others by not following safety rules or instructions will not be permitted to participate. Anyone who appears to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol will not be permitted to participate. Absolutely no live ammunition is permitted in the classroom. Hearing and eye protection is required for all shooting activities. PPE is available for student use at no extra charge.

Firearms

For students bringing their own firearms, we request that they ensure guns are clean, lubricated and in safe operating condition. All federal, state and local firearms laws must be adhered to. We advise against steel-cased/jacketed ammunition as these can cause safety issues on steel targets including ricochet and fire hazards. A good ammunition choice would be anything from Black Hills, CCI, Federal, Hornady, Remington, or Winchester. Please do not bring Tracers, Incendiary, Explosive or other “exotic” ammunition. Students should contact us if they are unsure or need further information about ammunition prior to classes.

Class Fees

  • 15 hour Initial NM Concealed Carry Class is $175 + tax ($100 deposit)
  • 4 hour NM Concealed Carry Renewal Class is $75 + tax ($50 deposit)
  • Qualification shoot for 2-year refresher or endorsement is $50 + tax

  • All other 2-day classes are $300 (+tax where applicable) ($150 deposit)

Any unpaid balance is due upon arrival to class. Class fee is payable cash, check, charge, or money order. No-call/No-show students forfeit class deposit. In the event a class needs to be canceled due to extreme weather, not meeting class student minimum (3), or other circumstances beyond our control, we will refund the full amount already paid or allow the student to apply that payment to a future class. If a student is denied their concealed handgun license due solely to a training issue, we will either correct that deficiency or offer a full refund.
