Black River Gift Coins

It is my belief that any instructor should be able to accomplish any task he sets forth for the students. So, I should be able to shoot the qualification just like any student. With that in mind, I went and shot the course of fire you will find in the CCW class.  To the left is my result.

The firing qualification is very easy.  It is:

      • 4 shots from 3 yards
      • 6 shots from 5 yards
      • 6 shots from 7 yards
      • 4 shots from 10 yards

The shots are not timed and from the ready position.

To qualify, all shots must be within the silhouette. They do not have to be as close as I pictured above. That’s just how I shot.

Your CCW class could be free! 

Here’s how:

At the class, shoot the course of fire as described here. If you can keep all your shots in the orange, no shot can even cut the line, then your class will be free.
