Concealed Carry / CCW Course – Cortez, CO

Date(s) - 12/23/2017

Four Corners Rifle and Pistol Indoor Range

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

Our CCW Course meets and surpasses the requirements for a Colorado Concealed Carry Weapons permit. This course addresses:

  • Use of force in defense of your life and of others,
  • In-depth Colorado defensive firearm and conceal carry laws,
  • Use of a handgun and CCW carry in the public, on your own property, businesses, vehicles, and in the home
  • Firearm safety,
  • and much more

This CCW Course has become renown as one of the most in-depth and extensive CCW Courses available in the Colorado area. So, even if you already have a CCW permit and had gone through a different training course for that permit, we encourage you to consider attending this course.
It is very common for those who’ve been through other courses somewhere else but then attend ours to inform us they learned more in our 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 – instead we want to get solid knowledge and training to all who seek truly excellent training. We have seen far 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.

For those who provably attended any other CO CCW Course within the last three (3) years, we urge you to attend and offer this course at 50% the normal costs. We have consistently found such attendees are very surprised by how much they will learn in comparison to what they’d previously attended and are always – without exception – very happy they took the time to attend this CCW Course.
For those who fit this category, please call instead of registering online (970-986-0774).
This offer is a half-off special, please come!

Items needed:
– Note-taking material
– Any non-alcoholic beverages or food you may want
– Willingness to learn and a sense of humor, this is fast-paced, funny class of great legal depth that will also open your mind in ways that will surprise you.
– Defenders USA will provide everything else for this class

We will also have expert firearms training courses that go far beyond this CCW Course and we encourage you to consider those also.

We look forward to seeing you and those you know and love in this CCW Course.

Course location:
Classroom & Indoor Range
1545 Lebanon Rd.
Cortez, CO

CCW Course times:
8:30 am to 1:30 pm. (Feel free to bring snacks or drinks to eat as wanted throughout the course.)

NOTE: Please be on time! Please be on time!! 

For Montezuma County residents only, due to policies mandated by the current Montezuma County Sheriff, you will have to attend a short shooting session along with this CCW Course before the MCSO will issue a CCW permit. We will host a short shooting session immediately after the classroom portion to fulfill this requirement placed by the MCSO Sheriff. Once you’ve completed the classroom and MCSO mandated shooting session, you will be issued  your CCW Course Certificate of completion.
The CCW Course alone is all that is needed for a CCW Permit for anyone who does not live in Montezuma County; non-MCSO residents will have fulfilled the State of Colorado’s CCW requirements and will not need to go into this shooting portion immediately after the CCW Course, unless simply wishing to do so. More training can’t hurt, right?

Note: Due to the many different makes and models of handguns the population at large has, along with the varying types of ammo also out there, we will provide the needed handgun and ammo for this portion of the course. You will not need to bring a handgun or ammo with you, though you are more than welcome to bring any along so we can go over your personal handgun(s) and use it if you’d rather use your own during the shooting portion of the course.

Further training opportunity:
Defenders USA will be hosting further handgun and combat rifle training sessions in the Cortez area in the near future. Those sessions will be listed on the website calendar as they are confirmed.


Registration are closed for this event.


“My husband and I took the CCW course 2 years ago and the Defender Series last weekend. As a novice hand gun owner I was coming in as a blank slate. Hubby on the other hand was all about his 1911 and ‘merica! At the end of the first day on the range, hubby went Glock shopping and actually said out loud “I can’t believe how much I’m learning!”. It doesn’t matter if you just bought your first hand gun or just retired from Special Ops Military Service, you will come away from this course with a better understanding of semi-automatic firearms, body mechanics and how they can work perfectly together for accurate, effective defense of life. While I sincerely pray that I NEVER have to use what I learned from our incredibly knowledgeable instructor, I believe that should the need arise I can and would defend my life or my loved ones lives. After taking this course I know what and how to practice to use my body and my weapon together properly so that IF I have to, THEN I will. THANK YOU!”
