Description

Day 1: 8AM-7PM
Day 2: 8AM-7PM
Day 3: 8AM-5PM

In order to initially qualify for a Class “G” Statewide Firearms License for security officers and private investigators, an applicant must successfully complete 28 hours of range and classroom training taught by a Class “K” firearms instructor. The initial 28-hour firearms course qualifies a Class “G” applicant to use the calibers of revolvers or semiautomatic handguns specified in section 493.6115(6), F.S., that the applicant will use when performing duties regulated under Chapter 493, F.S. A licensee may carry only the specific type and caliber of firearm with which he or she has completed a successful course of training.

The classes are taught by a husband and wife team, both prior law enforcement, with substantial experience in teaching firearms and helping shooters to overcome issues. Our purpose built Training Center is located just minutes from Downtown Eustis and Downtown Mount Dora.

Our "K" firearms instructor is also an NRA Training Counselor, one of only a handful holding both credentials. Training Counselors train NRA Instructors, meaning that your class will be taught by someone with very advanced skills that regularly teaches others how to be Instructors.

Other features of our classes include:

  • Comfortable training atmosphere
  • Onsite range:
  • —Actual range, not a small pile of dirt located in a remote area
  • —No distractions of a public range
  • —No travelling between the classroom and the range
  • —Covered gear tables
  • —Shade sails over shooting lanes
  • —Large fan provides breeze
  • Range safety is paramount:
  • —Our Instructors are also certified as Chief Range Safety Officers
  • —Our Instructors are trained in trauma response
  • Cold bottled water provided on the range
  • No additional fees for the range, targets, or hearing and eye protection
  • Rental firearms/holsters available for additional cost ($35)
  • Ammo and other shooting supplies available for purchase in our Pro Shop

Another feature that sets our classes apart from others is that you will shoot up to 100 rounds of live fire before the three qualification shoots (one practice and two to determine the highest score). This is especially important if you have no or limited experience with a handgun. Classes run by others typically only allow you to shoot the three qualification shoots—all of the firearm "practice" prior to the qualifications is dry fire (no ammo, simulating shooting).
