Concealed Handgun Permit Course – Craig, CO

Date(s) - 07/13/2019

Bears Ears Sportsmans Club

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

For those who provably attended any other CO CHP/CCW Course within the last three (3) years, we urge you to also attend and we offer this CHP/CCW 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.
For those who fit this category, please call instead of registering online (970-986-0774).

The CHP/CCW Course is the beginning portion of many of our more advanced firearms courses. Though this 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.

This particular CHP/CCW course will be followed by our Defensive Fighting Handgun I & II Courses at a Bear Ears Sportsman’s Club the next day. If you can attend that training also, we urge you to.

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 high-stress that comes with fear takes effort, time, and a willingness to engage in realistic training – such as what we offer. These skills take an open mind to learning and are perishable while also being completely different from target shooting.  Target practice, no matter how good one becomes at  it, does not prepare for the realities of most defensive shooting situations.

We look forward to seeing you and those you know and love in our CHP/CCW Course. We also encourage continuing on into our further courses should you seek out training beyond our CHP/CCW Course.

This CHP/CCW course will be begin at 8:30 pm at the Bears Ears Shooting Complex just outside of Criag, CO Immediately after the CHP/CCW Course, we will begin a Defensive Fighting Handgun I for those who chose to continue on.
The DFH1 goes far beyond the CHP/CCW Course. There is a separate registration link listed on our website calendar for this Saturday events.

“This is a great class whether you have experience with handguns or are a complete novice. It is a nice balance of very important class work, gun training and practice with your gun in various situations. You will leave the class feeling tired, challenged and accomplished all at once. It’s definitely something I will do again because there is a lot to absorb and think through in a short amount of time. It is also really clear that all of these skills still need alot of practice on a consistent basis for me to really be as proficient as I will need to be if the situation ever arises that I actually need to use a gun in defense of myself or someone else. This education, hands-on training and practice are worth FAR MORE than every penny I spent to go through it and I will definitely be a repeat student!”
