This is an 8-hour class. Roughly 4 hours classroom and 4 hours range time. Among the topics, we will cover safety, legal topics related to handgun carry, marksmanship fundamentals, handgun terminology, firearm and ammunition selection and more. Please bring a lunch and water / soft drinks.
PATRIOT TRAINING ALUMNI who already have their carry permit may audit this class at no charge, as often as they would like. If you wish to shoot, range fees may apply.
Please message us to schedule your EHCP class!
Video and audio recording of class is prohibited, with the sole exception of YouTube content creators with advance written permission.
THIS CLASS IS GENERALLY ONLY OFFERED TO ALUMNI AND THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS.
Certain exceptions may apply.
As our instructors do not live on or even near our partner range, and as the demand for Enhanced carry permit classes has dropped with the Constitutional Carry law in Tennessee, it has become less consistent and less requested to hold an Enhanced Carry Permit Class. But, we do not wish to turn you away out of hand. Perhaps your situation may make creating a class worthwhile. Perhaps we can forward you to a trusted instructor who can more readily meet your needs.
