Law Enforcement Qualifications

LEOSA Qualification Shoot - $15, Sunday Only

Federal law allows qualified retired peace officers with at least 10 years of experience to carry a concealed firearm if they meet certain criteria including an annual qualification shoot. Completion of this shoot results in a certificate that can be turned into the county sheriff in Nevada for a LEOSA card. This shooting qualification is conducted in compliance with the standards of the Nevada Sheriffs' and Chiefs' Association and the Law Enforcement Officer Safety Act and requires 30 rounds of ammunition.

Other Law Enforcement Qualifications

I can also sign off on department specific courses of fire if your department authorizes a civilian instructor to do so and you provide me with a copy of the course of fire. I have a number of officers that come to me from different departments for off duty weapons qualifications.


Introductory Private Pistol Lesson, Sunday Only

For $25 per hour, I will do private lessons for individuals or couples, starting with the basics of gun safety and the fundamentals of marksmanship. Within about 2 hours of training, you can go from knowing nothing about guns to having a basic competency with a handgun. Don't have a handgun? I also have some you can try out and help you find the one that suits you the best.


Nevada Concealed Firearm Permit Course ( CCW Course )

NOTE: Please verify you are eligible for a permit by reading the eligibility criteria. Feel free to call me if you need clarification.

This course meets the training requirements established by the State of Nevada for a concealed firearm permit. Topics include firearm safety, basic firearms handling skills, Nevada firearm laws, and Nevada self-defense laws.


Scheduled Courses: None scheduled. These courses are generally available for Saturdays only for full 8 hour courses, and possibly Sundays for 4 hour courses. Due to my busy schedule Saturday courses are difficult for me to know if I can do more than 2 days in advance.

Equipment Needed

Firearms and Ammunition

It is strongly recommended to bring the handgun you wish to carry and 30 rounds of ammunition. However, if you do not have a firearm or ammunition, a handgun will be provided to qualify with.

Eye and Ear Protection

For the Concealed Firearm Permit course, each student will be provided with ear and eye protection. Protective safety glasses and ear plugs will be given out and ear muffs can be borrowed. However, you may prefer to bring your own safety equipment that you are more comfortable with using, and are encouraged to do so.

Weather Appropriate Clothing

The shooting component of the course is conducted outside. It could be very cold or very hot. Dress for the outdoor weather. A hat is recommended to deflect shell casings and to keep the sun out of your eyes, as well as lotion to protect your skin from the ultra-violet radiation. For cold weather, gloves are recommended.

Lunch

Bringing your own lunch is recommended for the 8 hour courses.

Class Environment

Generally, the classroom instruction will be conducted from my house, but the shooting will be conducted either in BLM land or at a Washoe County shooting range. Each class conducted in my house will have no more than six students. This is an informal instructional environment but safety will be stressed at all times. This is a couch and coffee table classroom environment. Allergen Warning: My house is home to a cat and a chihuahua. By request, private classes can be held at other locations.
