Living Stone Church

This Concealed Handgun Permit Course will be held at the Living Stone Church at 2971 North Ave, Grand Junction, Colorado. This course will start at 1 pm and end around 5 pm’ish, taught by Certified Firearms Instructor Rob Lauren.
Rob is a former law enforcement officer and former EMT, having seen a lot of the violent situations people find themselves in and part of his mission is to help others not become the victim of a crime.

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 Course has 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 some of the lowest costs in the industry for such quality training – it’s about getting solid knowledge and training 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.

You will not need to bring a handgun to this course, as we will provide everything you will need, unless you want to bring something to eat or a non-alcoholic drink during the course.

For those who provably attended any other CO CHP / CCW Course within the last two (2) 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.

For those who’ve attended our CCW Course in the past, our CCW Courses are ALWAYS open to you for FREE at anytime. We have so many who repeat this class, due to the depth and detail of this training, which we encourage everyone to do, so if you’d like to attend again, please just let us know and we’ll get you registered at no cost. We are grateful to you for having attended at least once previously and we’d always love to see you again!

If you have any further questions or to assist in any way, please feel free to call us at 970-986-0774 or contact us by email at

We look forward to meeting you and training with you!
