CONCEALED WEAPON AND FIREARM LICENSE COURSE PROVIDED AT GRPC: 

 

 

       CLASS STARTS AT 8:30 AM. BE PROMPT.

       EYE AND HEARING PROTECTION STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. BE PREPARED AS YOU ARRIVE.

YOU WILL BE ASKED TO PROVIDE YOUR DRIVER LICENSE AS YOU ENTER SO WE CAN BE CERTAIN THE TRAINING CERTIFICATE HAS YOUR NAME EXACTLY AS PRESENTED ON THE LICENSE.

1. You must bring a handgun. No firearms or live ammunition are allowed in the class area. Secure firearm and ammunition in your vehicle.

2. You will need a minimum of 20 rounds of proper ammunition. Factory ammunition strongly suggested. "Reloads" may vary in specifications.

3. Shooting exercise:

B. Firing line exercise:

  1. Upon getting to your firing point, place your handgun on the bench, either cased or in a SAFE status. Do not load     magazines or cylinders.
  2. The CWFL requirement is that your instructor must observe you safely load, fire and unload a handgun.
  3. The line will be called COLD, all firearms will be checked. At this time you will place the cardboard/targets into the frame in front of your firing point. Once done, retire behind the red line.
  4. You will be called to your firing point. There will be a "dryfire" period, which means the firearm remains unloaded. You will take your stance and grip, and "pretend" shoot on the target. The line staff will observe and make suggestions as needed.
  5. At the end of the "dryfire" period, all handguns will be made SAFE.

LINE COMMANDS FOR THE THREE STAGES OF SHOOTING: EACH OF THE THREE STAGES WILL FOLLOW THESE COMMANDS:

1. The command "with five rounds, load" means to put five rounds in the magazine for autoloaders, and five rounds into the cylinder of revolvers.

DO NOT INSERT MAGAZINE OR CLOSE CYLINDER until line staff has observed the proper loading of each handgun.

2. The command "with five rounds, charge" means to insert the loaded magazine and chamber a round. Revolvers will have the cylinders closed and indexed. Muzzle discipline is mandatory.

3. The command "commence fire" means you may shoot at (your) target.

THE THREE STAGES OF SHOOTING, WHAT WILL BE DONE AT EACH STAGE.

1. The first five rounds make up the first stage: this will be done slowfire, at your pace. You will be observed and coached as needed.

When you are through with the five rounds, make your handgun SAFE, (as defined above) do not touch it until the next stage.

2. The second stage will be five rounds, slowfire, each shot from "low ready" position. "Low ready" means the gun will be resting on the front of the bench, with you holding it in your firing grip, trigger finger out of the trigger guard. Each shot will be executed by raising the gun to the target, firing your shot, removing finger from trigger guard and returning gun to rest on the bench.

This will be done at your pace. When through, make your gun SAFE, do not touch it until the next stage.

3. The third stage will be "cadence fire". "Cadence fire" means one shot every two seconds, or five shots in ten seconds. Do not fall into the trap of "hysterical fire" and rush your shots.

THAT DOES IT. MAKE YOUR GUN SAFE or CASE IT, STEP BEHIND THE RED LINE. AFTER THE LINE IS INSPECTED AND CALLED "COLD", YOU WILL BE TOLD TO GO FORWARD AND RETRIEVE YOUR TARGET/CARDBOARD. Once everyone is back, the group will remove their gear from the firing line.

You get the target, we get the cardboard.

Bring your target and certificate to the class instructor for review and signature of your certificate.

Thanks.
