***We are currently offering the 8 Hour Handgun Safety / Concealed Carry Course which meets all the State of Colorado requirements to obtain a CHP Concealed Handgun Permit.  Much like the NRA Basic Pistol it is for beginners but adds the benefit of covering information on Colorado Concealed Carry; it is an excellent substitute and is offered in lieu of the NRA Basic Pistol at this time.***
