Concealed Carry Weapons

Each CCW class includes the entire AZ DPS packet you need to apply for your Arizona CCW permit. We’ll guide you through federal laws, as well as Arizona-specific laws. This class lasts approximately four hours and costs $50 in advance. Our CCW courses fill up quickly. If we still have space available on the day of class, we will take walk-ins for a charge of $60.
