So, you have your permit to carry, or you plan to constitutional carry in the State of Maine, but you aren’t sure how to go about wearing a gun as part of your every day routine. Sound familiar? This class is designed specifically for you! This 8-hour class answers the big questions all new concealed carriers have and gives you the practical knowledge and essential skills to be a safe and responsibly armed member of the community. From holster selection, carry position, on and off-body carry options, cover garments, and supporting gear we cover all of the necessary “things” you need. The range portion of the class goes into depth about how to successfully clear cover garments and draw, present and fire as well as how to safely re-holster. Learn critical situational awareness and decision making skills vital to avoiding and surviving a deadly force encounter. We discuss the logistical challenges of carrying concealed with a young family, safe storage options, and how to build a daily routine that facilitates carrying a firearm for personal protection. A day of learning designed to give you a well rounded skill set and functional knowledge to carry confidently every day.
