What to Expect from a Florida Concealed Carry Class

If a Florida resident wants to carry a concealed firearm, it is important to obtain a concealed carry permit. Carrying a concealed weapon without one is illegal and results in harsh legal consequences. One of the best ways to prepare for the application process is to participate in a Florida concealed carry class.

What a Concealed Carry Class Includes

While taking a class, students learn the basics of safely operating a firearm. The rules of safety are covered. Students also learn how to hold a firearm properly, how to load and unload a gun and how to use the safety features. It is important to take a class from a certified instructor. In most classes, instructors can also answer questions students have about the Florida CCW permit application process.

Eligibility Requirements

There are several requirements for license eligibility. The best way to determine them is to read the updated terms. Applicants must not have felony convictions or violent misdemeanor convictions. They cannot have a history of institutionalization for mental illness.

Several other eligibility requirements exist. When planning to take a Florida concealed carry class, be sure to read all of the requirements to ensure eligibility before enrolling.
