Permit to Carry


The Club offers Permit to Carry (including Permit to Carry Renewal) classes on a monthly basis, with the exception of November.

Class size is limited to the first 24 who register and pay their deposit. A minimum of 4 students are needed for each class.

The fee for the class is $100 for first time permits (expired permits are treated as first-time permits), and $90 for renewals. Members of the Gun Club receive a $20 discount off those prices. A $50 deposit is required to finalize your registration and guarantee a seat in class, and is applied to your class fee.

Please note: due to the pandemic, we are holding the classroom portion of the Carry Permit class via videoconference using Lifesize, which is similar to Zoom. We hold the classroom portion the morning of the class, and then meet at the gun club in the afternoon to finish up with the shooting exercise.

You can get further information, register, and pay online here. (Note: you can also register and pay your deposit at the Club, but please read the information at this link before registering.)
