The South Carolina Concealed Weapons Permit Course qualifies you to obtain your SC CWP and meet the minimum training requirements of the South Carolina law pertaining to carrying a Concealed Weapon. The difference between our basic course and some of the others you will find is that we ensure that you are comfortable with your abilities before sending you on your way. This course is a great place to start for new shooters as it covers the basic of handgun shooting and safety. Also, our course INCLUDES fingerprinting on site, lunch, and the use of our gun and ammo at no extra charge! No renting a gun, buying ammo, or going to your local law enforcement facility to be fingerprinted! All extra costs! We cover the content required by the State of South Carolina to obtain your concealed weapons permit. The SC CWP course is about 7 hours long and includes classroom instruction and a portion on the range. You will participate in a live fire range exercise in which you will become more confident in your abilities to hit a target at ranges from 3 yards to 15 yards. The shooting portion is a standard course of fire outlined by SLED and is 50 rounds and can be found here. Upon successful completion of the range firing, you will have met all the requirements for the training required to obtain your South Carolina concealed weapons permit.
You are encouraged to bring the firearm you wish to carry to the class, but if you have not yet obtained one, you may use our firearms to become familiar with the makes and models often used. This will allow you to make better decisions on what handgun will best fit your physical size and method of carry for your CWP. You will need to bring 50 rounds of ammunition for your weapon if are going to shoot it for the course of fire, and if you desire to use one of our guns we will have the appropriate ammunition for the gun.
We will perform the administrative tasks of completing your fingerprint card and assist you in filling out the application forms to be submitted to SLED to obtain your SC CWP. Additionally we will take care of printing the required picture you will need to submit with your application to SLED along with making the copy of your drivers license.
