Concealed carry is a heavy responsibility and as such it should be more than a passing thought in your mind. White Hat offers varying courses of fire for concealed carry training that can range from learning how to deploy your particular firearm to a day of pistol combat training. Learning how you will carry your gun should be more than just picking a holster and strapping it on. Until you can reliably deploy your gun in a stressful situation you have no truly begun to safely carry. Putting rounds on paper shouldn’t be your only concern and we want to help you become sufficiently comfortable to be able to use your firearm effectively in a variety of situations.

A typical Concealed Carry Training session will last 2-4 hours and consume over 200 rounds of ammunition. The courses of fire can range from a defensive situation to timed exercises and any combination of training tools will be utilized.

The goal of the course is to increase the effectiveness of your firearm skills when pertaining to Concealed Carry. The classes also server as a platform to test your equipment for usability under real world restrictions and constraints.

Prices for a CCT session can range from simply replacing range materials to a full training combat course over a 3 day period so please contact us for more information about his course so that we can tailor the price to your needs. The average cost will be approximately $50 per hour of instruction for shorter classes up to $200 for a full 8 hour day per person.
