Carry 101

OKAY. Now I have my Concealed/Open Carry License. What's next?

The state-required training that is part of the Oklahoma SDA Handgun License Class is very basic. It should be regarded as the beginning not the end of your training. The License class will not make you a responsibly armed citizen, which should be your goal.

Once you take the License class, you need to have several goals to be a responsibly armed citizen. You need to shoot accurately in defensive situations; you need to learn how to draw and fire using your holster—SAFELY! We will practice ,reloads, shooting strong and weak hand; and MORE!

This class will be held on Friday evening from 9 pm to 10 pm for the classroom portion. We will meet on Saturday morning at 9 am for a brief orientation and then go to the range until 4 pm (we will take a lunch break). Plan on shooting 200 to 250 rounds.

You need to practice these skills, which we will cover in this course. This 10-hour course will introduce you to the techniques necessary for the defensive use of your handgun. This course is designed expressly for the armed citizen who carries a concealed handgun. The NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course is recommended.

Class Cost — $95

Discounts available for US Law Shield members and for those who have taken the Oklahoma Handgun License Class from Tonkawa Firearms Training. See the Registration Form.

Class Information

Watch the weather, you will need to dress for the conditions. If the day is solid rain, we will reschedule, but if a slight chance of showers, bring a rain jacket. I will bring a cooler with water, you may want to bring snacks and other soft drinks. We will take a lunch break.

General Requirements

• Make sure you arrive in class and on the range on time. Tardiness will result in canceling your class time.
• The instructor may remove anyone from the class at any time for improper attitude or a safety violation in handling a firearm.
• Your firearm must be safe and in good operating condition.
• Handgun must be an appropriate and legal carry firearm.
• Dress appropriately for weather conditions, as the live fire course will be held outside. The only time weather would cancel the range portion of the class is if the instructor deems it unsafe such as during severe lightning or storms or if it is too rainy.
• Pistol rental is available from the instructor.

It is recommended that you take the NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course, or depending on scheduling, take it before this class if possible. Then after you have taken this course and the NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Class you may take the NRA Basic Personal Protection in the Home, and/or Practical Pistol I.
