CMU Military Veterans Concealed Handgun Permit Course – Colorado Mesa University, Grand Junction, CO

Date(s) - 03/24/2019

Veterans Lounge, Houston Hall, Rm #110, Colorado Mesa University

This CHP / CCW Course is exclusively for current Colorado Mesa University students who are also military veterans. We are basically offering this course at cost, simply as a thank you for our military veterans and because – having been a college and university student for years too – money is always extremely tight on a college student budget.

Defenders USA’s CHP / CCW Course meets and surpasses the requirements for a Colorado Concealed Carry Weapons permit. Our CHP / CCW Course addresses:

  • Use of force in defense of your life and of others,
  • Colorado defensive firearm and conceal carry laws,
  • Use and carry of CHP / CCW on property, businesses, vehicles, and in the home,
  • Firearm safety,
  • and much more

This CHP / CCW Course is becoming renown as one of the most in-depth and extensive CHP / CCW Courses available in the Colorado. So, even if you already have a CHP / CCW permit and had gone through a different training course for that permit, we encourage you to consider attending this course also. It is very common for those who’ve been through other courses somewhere else but then attend ours to inform us that they learned more in our CHP / CCW and other firearms courses than anywhere else. It’s not about the money for us – we already have the lowest costs for such quality training – it’s about getting solid knowledge and training out to you. We have seen too many victims of violent crime and we want to help people best survive in an unfortunate situation in order to bring as much high quality education and training to as many people as we can.

This CHP / CCW Course is the beginning portion of many of our more advanced firearms courses. Though the CHP / CCW Course can be taken as a stand-alone course, we highly recommend you invest in further defensive handgun training with us beyond this CHP / CCW Course.

Even if you are a highly-trained, expert marksman, to become confident and truly skilled in the efficient use of a gun for defense of life under the high-stress that comes with fear takes effort, time, and a willingness to engage in realistic training – such as what we offer. These skills are perishable and are completely different than target shooting.  Target practice, no matter how good one becomes at  it, does not prepare anyone for the realities of most defensive shooting situations. We have multiple expert firearms training courses – all taught by veterans and former civilian law enforcement personnel  – above and beyond this CHP / CCW Course and we encourage you to enroll in those.

We look forward to seeing you there. And thank you for your service.

This course will begin at 1300 hrs. at the Veterans Lounge in Houston Hall at CMU.

“I continue to think and ponder the learnings and ah- ha moments from the weekend. I am aw-struck with the passion in which you convey your knowledge about this important topic. Your command of its depth and breadth is significant and your stories that punctuate the concepts drive the key points solidly home. Additionally and not less significant is the manner in which you so carefully weave morality, spirituality and love of mankind into this life altering choice.

I am very grateful that my path was guided to you and your work with “defenders”. I feel very proud to know you. Please accept my personal gratitude to you for your strong commitment and values to teach others and help them understand the depth of their soul in making a personal defense decision.”
