Are you considering carrying a pistol for protection? As a savvy and responsible gun owner, you know that effective personal protection involves more than buying a compact pistol and an IWB (inside the waistband) holster. It requires education, training, and practice. Want to learn how to best protect yourself with a firearm? This is the perfect class for you.

In the GA Firing Line CCW class, you’ll get more than just a lesson in carrying your weapon. We’ll provide you with both the physical and mental skills necessary to be aware of, understand, and handle any threats that you may encounter.

Because this is an intermediate class, we do require that students have some prerequisite shooting experience. We expect all students to be familiar with their sidearms, but we do not want to discourage beginner level shooters, either. Whether you’re a new shooter or you just feel like you could use a refresher on gun safety and shooting skills, we recommend taking our NRA First Steps class. After that, please feel free to come back and hone your everyday carry skills in this class.


We prepare all of our students with the skills necessary to protect themselves and their loved ones.
Students of the GAFL CCW class leave with new-found confidence in their ability to effectively use their firearm from concealment.
In addition to learning the essential concepts of self-defense with a firearm, our students always have a great time in the live-fire range portion of this class.



Your most powerful self-defense tool lies right between your ears. With the right mindset, you’ll always be prepared to handle a threat to yourself or your loved ones.



Know your rights. In this portion of the class, our students learn the legal concepts governing self-defense and firearms.

Day of the class

We ask students to arrive 15 minutes early. This provides them time to get signed in at the range counter and make it back to the classroom by 6:00pm. The classroom portion will begin promptly at 6:00pm and last approximately an hour and a half. Once we have completed the classroom training we will then make our way into the range and begin working our way through the draw process. The range session generally lasts an hour and a half.
